Rams vs. Chiefs: Odds Of A Super Bowl 2019 Rematch Between Los Angeles, Kansas City

The Los Angeles Rams and Kansas City Chiefs might’ve played the greatest regular-season NFL game of all time when they met on “Monday Night Football.” It’s entirely possible the two teams will get a chance to match that performance within the next few months.

A meeting between the Rams and Chiefs in Super Bowl LIII is given +725 betting odds, according to It’s considered to be the second-most likely Super Bowl matchup, followed only by a potential game between the Chiefs and New Orleans Saints at +425 odds.

Los Angeles’ thrilling 54-51 victory over Kansas City was the third-highest scoring game in NFL history. Patrick Mahomes and Jared Goff combined to throw for 891 yards and 10 touchdown passes. There were even three defensive touchdowns to go along with all the offense.

The win allowed the Rams to maintain the best record in the NFC. They’ve got a half-game lead over the Saints, though New Orleans has a chance to tie L.A. when the Rams take their bye in Week 12. The Saints own the tiebreaker because of their 45-35 victory over the Rams a few weeks ago.

L.A. has a fairly easy schedule to finish 2018. Their only game against a team that currently sits above .500 comes in Week 14 when they visit the Chicago Bears.

Kansas City remains in the driver’s seat to secure home-field advantage throughout the AFC playoffs. They’ve got a one-game lead over the Pittsburgh Steelers and a 1.5-game lead over the New England Patriots. The Patriots own the head-to-head tiebreaker with the Chiefs because of their win over Kansas City at Gillette Stadium last month.

The Chiefs should be favored in each of their remaining games. In addition to two matchups with the Oakland Raiders, Kansas City will take on the Baltimore Ravens, Los Angeles Chargers and Seattle Seahawks.

Potential matchups between the Saints and Patriots and Saints and Steelers also have +725 odds. The odds of for Rams-Patriots Super Bowl are +900.

New Orleans actually ranks ahead of both Kansas City and Los Angeles with 37.8 points per game. The Chiefs average 36.7 points per contest and the Rams are third with an average of 35.4 points.

How Target Is Filling the Void Left by Toys ‘R’ Us This Holiday Season

Shortly after Toys ‘R’ Us declared bankruptcy in March, the retail industry undeniably felt its ripple effect.Job gains in the sector took a hit after 30,000 Americans were left without work while mall vacancies climbed to their highest level since rebounding from the Great Recession. However, the toymaker’s demise has also left billions of dollars in holiday toy sales up for grabs as retailers like Target battle for its market share ahead of the biggest shopping season of the year.

Reporting third-quarter earnings this morning, the big-box chain announced that the toys category was among those that showed the strongest sales gains.

In addition to experiential opportunities, Target is heating up the competition with Amazon and Walmart this holiday season by waiving its $35 order minimum along with adding free two-day shipping until Dec. 22.

For the quarter, the company saw net income climb to $622 million, or $1.17 per share, compared with $478 million, or 87 cents per share, in the same period last year.

Target also reported sales that increased 5.6 percent from a year ago to $17.82 billion, with same-store sales up 5.1 percent. Although the figures fell slightly short of expectations, the Minneapolis-based retailer maintained its profit forecast for the full year.

“We’ve made significant investments in our team heading into the holidays, and they are ready to serve our guests with a comprehensive suite of convenient delivery and pickup options, a wide range of new products and unique gift ideas and a strong emphasis on low prices and great value,” CEO and chairman Brian Cornell said in a statement.

Dancing With the Stars' Alum Nikki Glaser Pitches 'Losers' Season

In an interview alongside her pro partner Gleb Savchenko, Glaser told On The Red Carpet that "there's a rumor going around that I'm spreading that there is going to be a losers season, where it's everyone who's been voted out either first or second and they come back to redeem themselves."

"I'm the first announced cast member," Glaser cracked, "of that season that I just made up."

rumors are flyyyying. Big announcement coming soon...

She and Savchenko revealed that her "losers season" would involve different partner match-ups than before "and so we have a little bit of a rivalry."

"It's going to be very interesting, a very dramatic season," she said straight faced to the interviewer, who gave a perplexed look to the camera.

Glaser, who was eliminated during Week 1 after dancing two salsa dances (with a shoulder injury) with Savchenko, was on hand during the finale to help ring in a new champion, who happened to be who she was pulling for: country music radio host Bobby Bones.

Bones and partner Sharna Burgess pulled out the upset victory after they were given Vegas odds at the beginning of the season of 20-1, tying them for "dead last," as Bones put it at the time.

Despite earning consistently lower scores throughout the season than his competitors, Bones and Burgess were able to pull in a considerable amount of fan voting to secure not only their spot in the finals, but in first place.

Following Bones and Burgess' victory, Glaser tweeted her congratulations to them and thanked them for asking her to be in their final freestyle dance, for which they scored a perfect 30/30.

"Huge congrats to @mrBobbyBones and @SharnaBurgess on their @DancingABC win tonight. I was honored that they asked me to be in their last dance, which no one forced them to do," Glaser wrote. "I am not a good dancer and they didn’t care. That’s what makes them great."

Bones clearly won the popular vote, with many of Nashville and country music's biggest names — including Carrie Underwood, who knows a thing or two about winning a talent competition — congratulating the 38-year-old on his win.

"AAAHHHHH! Congratulations on winning @DancingABC!!!! Your Country Music family is so happy for you," Underwood tweeted at Bones Monday night.
