Cavaliers Looking to Clinch in Canada

Cavaliers Raptors NBA

With a trip to their second straight NBA Finals on the line, the Cleveland Cavaliers will try to win a game in Toronto after losing four straight both SU and ATS at the Air Canada Centre. After getting upset in Games 2 and 3 in Toronto, the Cavs laid the smack down in Game 5 at home in a 116-78 win.

This matchup has been all about home court advantage as the home team is 8-0 SU and ATS in the last eight games between the teams. Toronto opened the day as +6 dogs — a spot where they’ve gone 3-0 SU and ATS in their last three games in that situation. Betting on the Raptors as a home underdog has been profitable for bettors, as they’ve gone 7-1 ATS dating back to last season.

The total for the game is currently set at 196 — a number that heavily favors the Cavs who have gone 12-2 SU in their last 14 games with a closing total of 196 or more. That’s not a good number for the Raptors, as they’ve gone 3-9 ATS in their last 12 games with a closing total of 196 or less.

2016 Monaco Grand Prix Odds

Daniel Ricciardo Red Bull Formula 1 Monaco Grand Prix

Following a disastrous weekend in Barcelona at the Spanish Grand Prix, Mercedes will hope to rebound with some strong driving at the Monaco Grand Prix this weekend. One thing is for certain when it comes to the Mercedes team entering this race: Nico Rosberg loves this track.


Pirates' Offense Lighting Up D-Backs

The Pittsburgh Pirates will go for a series sweep when they cap off a three-game set with the Arizona Diamondbacks Thursday. The Pirates have been coasting past the D-Backs in their recent meetings with the Bucs taking nine of the past 11 while averaging 7.3 runs per game in that span.

Gerrit Cole has not been nearly as good when he takes the mound at PNC Park compared to the road this season. Cole has a 4.08 ERA in three home starts while allowing one more run than he has on the road – despite playing two fewer games in Pittsburgh.

Patrick Corbin has been lights out while travelling this season, as the leftie has a 2.01 ERA with opponents batting .228 in five starts away from Chase Field. Corbin’s pitching on the road has gone a long way to lifting the D-Backs to victories, as the team is 4-1 in his road appearances.

Will Lightning Strike in a Game 7 Again?

Nikita Kucherov Tampa Bay Lightning Phil Kessel Pittsburgh Penguins NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs

We find out who will be joining the San Jose Sharks in the 2016 Stanley Cup final as the Pittsburgh Penguins host the Tampa Bay Lightning Thursday evening. The Lightning have actually been a fantastic wager in Game 7’s throughout their brief history and get a crack at posting another W tonight.

Shark Bites
  • The fave has gone 17-4 SU in the last 21 games between the Lightning and Penguins.
  • OVER has cashed in 18 of the previous 21 meetings between the Lightning and Penguins.
  • The Lightning are 5-1 SU in the last six games as road underdogs.

Online shop Bovada is presently offering the Pens at -190 in moneyline markets while the Lightning currently come in at +160. As far as the total is concerned, OVER 5.5 goals is currently +110 while UNDER 5.5 goals is -130.

The Lightning have played six Game 7’s in their franchise history (none during their current playoff run) and have won five of those – including a pair of Game 7 wins en route to a Stanley Cup final appearance last season. Furthermore, UNDER has been an excellent wager in Tampa Game 7’s as well, cashing in all six spots.

As far as the Penguins are concerned, they have gone 7-7 SU in their history when it comes to Game 7’s and have lost three straight (2010, 2011, 2014) entering Thursday’s contest. The pair have met once before in a Game 7, coming in 2011 when the Bolts blanked them by a score of 1-0.

The Pens have gone 6-3 SU in nine home games during the playoffs with Lightning posting an excellent road record of 5-2 SU away from the Amalie Arena.

White Sox Faltering As Underdogs

The Chicago White Sox find themselves in the rare position of being underdogs when they travel to Kansas City to take on the Royals Thursday. The Sox are just 6-9 this season when they close as a moneyline underdog – which includes dropping their past five in that spot.

Miguel Gonzalez – who starts for the White Sox – has been struggling to put lift his teams to victories, as he is 0-7 in his past 12 starts with his clubs going 3-9. Gonzalez pitched well in his last start – which came against the Royals – as the righty went 6.0 innings while allowing two earned runs and striking out eight.

Danny Duffy will make his third start of the season for the Royals, but will still be facing a pitch count as he continues to be eased back into the starting rotation. Duffy only pitched 7.1 innings in his past two starts, but surrendered just five hits and no runs.

Nats Aim to Continue Dominance Of Cards

The Washington Nationals start their second series of the season with the St. Louis Cardinals Thursday at Nationals Park. The Nats swept the first series while only allowing the Cardinals to score a combined five runs in those three games.

After struggling to get acclimated in his new home of St. Louis, Mike Leake has started to look like the big free agent the Cardinals paid for this offseason. Leake is 3-0 with a 2.08 ERA during the month of May while holding opponents to a paltry .200 batting average.

Joe Ross – who gets the start for the Nationals – is on the opposite end of the spectrum. Ross held a 0.79 ERA during the first month of the season, but that number has ballooned to a 4.50 ERA in May starts.

Do-or-Die Scenario for the Warriors

Stephen Curry Kevin Durant Golden State Warriors Oklahoma City Thunder

Simply put, the Golden State Warriors have not looked like the Golden State Warriors in the Western Conference finals. With a 3-1 series lead in hand, Oklahoma City has completely flipped the script on the 2016 playoffs and can send the Dubs packing with a win in Oakland on Thursday.

Shark Bites
  • The Thunder are 6-1 ATS in their last seven games as an underdog of 7.0 or more.
  • The total has gone UNDER in the Warriors' last four games with a closing total of 220.5 or more.
  • The Warriors are 12-1 SU in their last 13 games after losing as a favorite.

The good news for Warriors bettors is the Thunder have fared terribly at Oracle Arena. In their last six trips to the Bay Area, OKC is a measly 1-5 ATS. The Warriors are also 8-2 ATS in their past 10 as home favorites.

The Warriors dropped back-to-back games for the first time all season in Game 4 in the wake of a 118-94 tuning by the Thunder. Golden State lost consecutive playoff games by at least 20 points for the first time since 1972.

Taking care of the ball will be huge if the Warriors want to keep their championship hopes alive. Golden State shot 41 percent and committed 21 turnovers that led to 18 Thunder points in Game 4. Curry was just 6 for 20 and missed eight of his 10 three-point attempts.

Game 7 Histories of Penguins & Lightning

Penguins Lightning

Betting on who’s at home or away or who’s favored or the dog hasn’t given bettors much of an edge in this series, as the home team has won just twice, while Pittsburgh has been the favorite in each game.

A quick glance to your right will show you that the Penguins are favored to win Game 7 Thursday night against the Lightning. As of this writing, the Pens are healthy -190 favorites, which seems about right as they closed between -179 and -207 in their three previous home games against the Lightning in this series.
