Panthers Have Been Strong Versus Isles

Florida Panthers New York Islanders NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs

The Florida Panthers shocked everyone by putting together an exceptional regular season and winning the Atlantic Division. Now, for just the second time in franchise history, the Panthers will look to win an opening round series when they tangle with the New York Islanders as things get started in Sunrise Thursday evening.

Shark Bites
  • The total has gone OVER in eight of the previous 10 meetings between these teams.
  • The Panthers are 11-4 SU in the last 15 games versus the Metropolitan Division.
  • The total has gone OVER in seven of the Panthers’ last eight home games.

The Panthers are presently -140 in moneyline markets at online book Bovada while the Islanders can be had at +120. OVER 5 goals is presently -135 while UNDER 5 goals is +115.

The Panthers won the Atlantic Division with 103 points – six more than the Tampa Bay Lightning. A 12-game winning streak that bridged 2015 and 2016 catapulted the Panthers into the division title conversation and they never looked back.

Florida enters the playoffs as one of the hotter teams in the league as they’ve won five of six and seven of their last nine. They’ve won four of the last five meetings with the Islanders and took two of three from them this season.

The Isles, who have lost back-to-back games entering the playoffs, did win the most recent meeting, however, as they skated to a 3-2 victory on home ice back on March 14.

Diamondbacks Can’t Get It Done In LA

The Arizona Diamondbacks have not exactly lit the world on fire to start the season and in order to right the ship they will need to reverse some bad history when they continue their series against the Los Angeles Dodgers Thursday. The D-Backs are 4-16 in their past 20 games at Dodgers Stadium, which includes a 3-1 loss on Wednesday.

The Diamondbacks have been solid offensively this season, with Jean Segura leading the way. The young second baseman is second in the MLB in hits and has safely reached base at least twice in five consecutive games.

The Dodgers will send Ross Stripling to the mound for the second start of his young career after a tremendous first game. Stripling was pulled after 7.1 innings with a no-hitter in tact, though he was on the hook for a run in that game.

Rays’ Archer Looks To End Struggles

The Tampa Bay Rays will send staff ace Chris Archer to the mound in hopes he can fix what has been broken Thursday afternoon. Archer is winless in his last eight starts, dating back to September 2015, while posting a 0-5 record with a 6.15 ERA in that span. The Rays will hope Archer can cure whatever ails him when they host the Cleveland Indians in matinee action.

The Rays have been struggling at the plate, as they rank in the bottom third in the league in every major statistical offensive category. If there has been one ray of sunshine at the plate for Tampa it has been Steven Sousa Jr., who has a .333 batting average with three home runs and five RBIs this season.

The Indians will send Danny Salazar to the mound Thursday following a strong performance in his first outing of the season that saw the pitcher allow just two hits and one run over 5.1 innings.

Props on Kobe Bryant's Final Game

Kobe Bryant Los Angeles Lakers

As the NBA’s regular season ends on Wednesday, the book officially closes on one of the best players to ever grace the hardwood: Kobe Bryant.

Bryant announced in November that this season would be his last, which has led to a farewell tour that’s seen the Black Mamba get widely applauded by fans, announcers, coaches and his peers across the Association. The Los Angeles Lakers officially close out the year at STAPLES Center against the Utah Jazz.

Warriors Could Make History Tonight

Matt Barnes Stephen Curry

A year’s worth of hype has culminated in one game: the Golden State Warriors can eclipse the Chicago Bulls’ 1995-96 season win record with a victory over the Memphis Grizzlies tonight. Sportsbooks are clearly expecting the Dubs to go all out, as Golden State has opened as 17.5-point favorites at most shops.

Shark Bites
  • The Grizzlies are 10-2 ATS in their last 12 games after an ATS loss.
  • The Warriors are 1-8 ATS in their last nine games as a favorite of 17.5 or more.
  • The total has gone UNDER in three of the Warriors' last four games with a closing total of 213.5 or less.

Thanks to a victory over the San Antonio Spurs on Sunday – the first time the Warriors have won there since 1997 – the opportunity is completely in their hands now. It won’t be a walk in the park, however, as the Grizzlies pushed Stephen Curry and company to the brink last week in a 100-99 setback in Tennessee.

The Grizzlies are about to make some history as well, but it won’t get much attention from media members and hoops fans. Memphis is about to become the first team in NBA history to ever reach the postseason having used more than 23 players. The banged up Grizzlies have put 28 different players on the floor in an injury-riddled campaign.

The UNDER is trending ahead of this one. In the last nine matchups between the squads, the UNDER has gone 8-1.

The End of an Era: Kobe's Final Game

Gordon Hayward Kobe Bryant

After two decades of lighting up scoreboards across the NBA, the Kobe Bryant show will officially end tonight when the Los Angeles Lakers play host to the Utah Jazz in the final day of the 2015-16 NBA campaign. Kobe announced his retirement plans back in November and a league-wide farewell tour followed, and you can bet there won’t be many dry eyes in the arena after this one is over.

Shark Bites
  • The Jazz are 12-5 ATS in their last 17 games.
  • The Jazz are 6-20 SU in their last 26 games on the road against the Lakers.
  • The total has gone UNDER in 12 of the Lakers' last 17 games after a loss.

The 37-year-old Bryant ends his illustrious career as the third-leading scorer in NBA history. Nobody has ever spent 20 seasons with one team until Bryant did. Oddsmakers are expecting the lowly Lakers to keep it close in Kobe’s final game, opening L.A. as 6-point underdogs.

With two 30-point performances this month, Kobe has shown he’s still capable of filling the scoresheet, and you better believe the shooting guard will be firing on all cylinders in this one. If you’re looking for Kobe props, we’ve broken them down for you here.

When tabbed as faves, the Jazz are producing at a rapid clip. Utah is 9-2 SU and ATS in the last 11 when listed as chalk.
