2016 European Grand Prix Odds

Lewis Hamilton European Grand Prix Mercedes

Don’t look now, but things are getting very interesting at the top of the Formula 1 drivers’ standings.

Mercedes still dominates at the top but Lewis Hamilton has now won back-to-back races heading into Sunday’s European Grand Prix in Baku, Azerbaijan and has closed teammate Nico Rosberg’s lead to just nine points.

Rosberg won the first four races of the season and established a huge lead over everyone but that was followed by a first-ever victory for Red Bull’s Max Verstappen and then the double by Hamilton.


Romania Has Huge Edge Over Albania

Bogdan Stancu Romania Euro 2016

With the expanded format at Euro 2016, there is a real possibility that one of Romania or Albania will advance to the next stage of the tournament. A winner in Sunday’s contest from either side could see them advance as one of the top third-place teams. That said, this has been a totally one-sided rivalry over the years and if history is any indication, we know which way this is going.


French-Swiss Matchup Caps Group A

The hosts of Euro 2016 relied on late magic in both of their first two group matches against Albania and Romania. France will not want to play things so close to the chest against a Swiss team that is significantly more talented than either of the two previous French conquests.

Porcello Excelling at Fenway

Fresh off an 8-4 defeat to the Seattle Mariners, the Boston Red Sox will now turn to a pitcher that’s had tremendous success at home this season. Rick Porcello, who’s scheduled to get the start for the BoSox, has won all five of his starts at Fenway Park this season.

Shark Bites
  • The OVER is 4-1 in the Mariners last 5 games.
  • The Red Sox are 1-4 in their last 5 home games.
  • The Mariners are 2-5 in their last 7 road games.

Adrian Sampson will counter the the M’s. Samson is filling the hole in the rotation for Wade Miley and will be making his major league debut. The 24-year-old has made 13 starts for Triple-A Tacoma, going 7-4 with a 3.25 ERA while striking out 61 batters and walking only 12.

Porcello has pitched at least six innings in each of his last four outings, but he’s surrendered five home runs during that span. Seth Smith (6-for-13) and Robinson Cano (9-for-24) have fared well against Porcello.

"Big Game James" is Struggling for ChiSox

To say James Shields has struggled to adjust to the American League would be a massive understatement. Since coming to the Chicago White Sox in a trade from the San Diego Padres earlier this month, Shields has given up 14 runs in seven innings for the ChiSox. He’ll try and turn things around Saturday against the Cleveland Indians.

Shark Bites
  • White Sox are 0-5 in their last 5 Saturday games.
  • The White Sox are 0-4 in the last 4 meetings.
  • The UNDER is 9-3-2 in the Indians last 14 games.

Danny Salazar is scheduled to counter for the Indians. Salazar (7-3, 2.19 ERA) has allowed two runs and six hits with 17 strikeouts in 13.5 innings this month and has won five of his last six decisions.

White Sox slugger Todd Frazier will need to get going soon if he wants to help his team recover from their recent struggles. Frazier is 0-for-15 with six strikeouts in a four-game span entering the tilt.

Nationals on Cruise Control at Petco

Max Scherzer is always one of the most dominant players in the National League, and it’s no different in 2016. Scherzer has been brilliant in June and will attempt to post his fourth consecutive victory when the Washington Nationals visit the San Diego Padres on Sunday.

Shark Bites
  • The Padres are 1-5 in their last 6 home games.
  • The OVER is 4-1 in the Padres last 5 games.
  • The Nationals are 5-0 in the last 5 meetings in San Diego.

Scherzer has allowed just 12 hits while compiling a 1.23 ERA in his three June starts and has struck out 28 against just three walks. Colin Rea (3-3, 5.37) will get the nod for the Padres. Rea has gone six straight starts without a victory and is coming off his worst outing of the campaign. The 25-year-old gave up eight runs and nine hits in 2.5 innings against the Miami Marlins last week.

Washington left fielder Jayson Werth is on an absolute tear right now, recording three consecutive two-hit games while going 16-for-38 with 10 RBI over his last 10 contests.

UNDER Hot at Wrigley Field

The Chicago Cubs are inarguably the best team in baseball, and they possess one of the top pitching staffs in the bigs as well. They’ll turn to another one of their big guns when Jon Lester gets the start against the Pittsburgh Pirates on Saturday.

Shark Bites
  • The Pirates are 1-6 in their last 7 games following a loss.
  • The UNDER is 11-1 in the Cubs' last 12 home games.
  • The Pirates are 1-8 in the last 9 meetings.

Cubs starting pitchers have posted a 1.65 ERA over the past 20 games. Lester (8-3, 1.89 ERA) shut out the Pirates over 5.5 innings in a win on May 4 and allowed one run over 6.5 innings in a loss on May 16.

Pittsburgh will turn to Jonathan Niese. Niese (6-3, 4.60) has owned a 2.15 ERA over a six-start span in which he posted five quality starts. He’ll have to watch out for Jason Heyward, who is 9-for-28 with two homers and two doubles against the hurler.

MMA Fighter Rankings: Pound-for-Pound

For decades, combat sports observers have attempted to pin a Best Pound-For-Pound Fighter label on someone. Whether it was Tyson in his heyday, Roy Jones in numerous weight classes - hell, even wrestling has their supermatch arguments - fans have wanted to crown one fighter as the best. It’s the same for MMA, with even more heated debate as the UFC now dwarfs boxing in popularity.
