Wins Coming Easily for Wild on Home Ice

Minnesota Wild Zach Parise

Puck bettors looking to gain an edge when it comes to measuring home ice advantage will want to pay attention to Friday's Chicago Blackhawks-Minnesota Wild clash at the Xcel Energy Center. The Wild are a spotless 4-0-0 in front of their home fans this season, while the Hawks are a paltry 1-3-0 away from Illinois so far.

Shark Bites
  • Blackhawks are 4-0 in the last 4 meetings.
  • The UNDER is 5-0 in the Blackhawks' last 5 road games.
  • The Wild are 4-0 in their last 4 home games.

Blackhawks backup goaltender Scott Darling is expected to get the nod in between the pipes. The 26-year-old is 1-1-0 with a 2.51 goals-against average and .906 save percentage in two appearances this year. Countering for Minny is Devan Dubnyk (6-2-0, 2.37, .902).

Scoring 5-on-5 has not been an easy task for the Blackhawks as of late. Chicago hasn't found the back of the net at even strength since Artem Anisimov found twine in a 3-2 victory over the Florida Panthers on Oct. 22.

World Series Game 3 Odds: NYM vs KC

Mets’ fans and bettors will be hoping there’s no place like home for their team as the Mets try to dig themselves out of a 0-2 series hole. The Mets and Royals will play the first of three in the Big Apple tonight with Noah Syndergaard and Yordano ‘Ace’ Ventura facing off in a battle of young fireballers. 

Their backs are against the wall, but 11 teams have come back to win the World Series after being down 0-2, including the 1986 Mets. The Mets have won three of their four playoff games at home so far this postseason, scoring a total of 22 runs while allowing 13. Syndergaard’s lack of playoff experience hasn’t hindered him during the playoffs, as ‘Thor’ currently has a 2.77 ERA and 20 strikeouts over 13 innings pitched.

The Royals enter the game going 7-3 over their last 10 on the road. Ventura’s postseason ERA sits at 5.09 and in his lone playoff road start vs the Astros he allowed two home runs in five innings pitched while striking out eight. 

No player on the Royals has ever faced Syndergaard, while Yoenis Cespedes is the only Mets player which experience vs Ventura, registering one hit in seven at bats.

Nover: Kelly is Hurting Eagles SB Odds

The Philadelphia Eagles are one of four teams on a bye this week. Yet this might be the most important week of the Eagles' season.

It all depends on Chip Kelly. He's been an innovator since coming to Philadelphia three seasons ago from Oregon with his high tempo, fast-break offense. Kelly's style and system have helped the Eagles go 10-6 during each of the last two regular seasons.

Oilers Have Been Strong Vs Canadiens

Connor McDavid and Nail Yakupov

The Edmonton Oilers have been a bottom of the barrel team for several years now, but they have managed to find success against the powerhouse Montreal Canadiens. The Oilers are 9-3 in their past 12 hosting the Habs and have won the past three meetings between the teams.

Connor McDavid has been as good as advertised as he brings a six-game point streak into Thursday’s game. The Oilers are expected to start Cam Talbot in net who has dominated the Canadiens in his few career appearances against the team with a 1-0-1 record and a 0.49 GAA.

Montreal will likely send reigning Hart Trophy winner Cary Price to the net, but the All-Star goalie has struggled against Edmonton in his career. Price has lost his past five starts against the Oilers with the netminder posting a 3.21 GAA.

Dallas' Revenge? Clips vs Mavs Odds

DeAndre Jordan Clippers

All eyes will be on DeAndre Jordan tonight when his Clippers welcome the team he burned in the offseason, the Mavericks, to the Staples Center tonight in Los Angeles. The Mavs enter the game with perhaps a bit of revenge on their minds after Jordan agreed to sign with them in the offseason, only to go back on his word and return to the Clippers.

Both teams opened up the season with wins last night, each scoring 111 points in road victories. In 22 career games vs Dallas, Jordan has averaged 10 points and 10 rebounds, but he was a monster the last time the teams met, grabbing 18 boards and putting in 16 points in a March loss in Dallas.

The teams have been drastically different in the second games of back-to-backs recently, with Dallas going 0-4 SU and ATS, while Los Angeles has gone 6-0 SU and 5-1 ATS. The Clippers won two of three against the Mavs last season.

NBA Betting: Grizzlies-Pacers Preview

Memphis Grizzlies Zach Randolph

The Memphis Grizzlies and Indiana Pacers faltered in their respective season opening games but will be looking to collect the first win of the young NBA campaign Thursday in Indiana. The Grizz are coming off a 106-76 blowout at the hands of the Cleveland Cavaliers, while the Pacers squandered a 16 point lead and fell to the Toronto Raptors 106-99 north of the border.

Shark Bites
  • The OVER is 7-1 in Indiana's last eight home games.
  • The Grizzlies are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 meetings in Indiana.
  • Paul George went just 4-for-17 from the field in Indiana's opening tilt Wednesday.

Both squads will be playing their second contest in the last 24 hours which could favor a low scoring game. Indiana was 5-13 SU and 8-9-1 ATS in the second game of back to backs last season, but went just 1-7 SU and 1-6-1 ATS in their last eight. The UNDER paid out in six of the aforementioned eight matchups.

Memphis wasn't particularly strong at the end of the year in that department either, going 2-5 SU in their last seven back to back games. The total went UNDER in their last four when playing twice in a row.

TNF Week 8 Odds - Patriots vs Dolphins

New England Patriots Rob Gronkowski

The Miami Dolphins have looked like a different team since former head coach Joe Philbin was shown the door and will be seeking to pick up their third straight victory against the undefeated New England Patriots in Thursday Night Football. In the wake of a 44-26 triumph over the Houston Texans, the ‘Fins have now scored the most points in the NFL for the second straight week.

The Dan Campbell-led Dolphins have their hands full in attempting to knock off the Pats, who haven’t shown any sign of a Super Bowl hangover. The Patriots held on to top the New York Jets in Week 7 and once again showed their uncanny ability to step up in the clutch.

Both teams have been profitable plays for OVER bettors so far this season, as the OVER/UNDER has gone 4-2-0 in their contests.
