NBA: Spurs Have Struggled ATS in OKC

Oklahoma City Thunder Russell Westbrook

Two of the most talented and deep teams in the NBA's Western Conference open their respective seasons Wednesday when the San Antonio Spurs tangle with the Oklahoma City Thunder at Chesapeake Energy Arena. The young Thunder appear to be largely recovered from an injury riddled 2014/15 season that saw them finish on the outside looking of a playoff spot, while the veteran laden Spurs were the unanimous offseason winners thanks largely in part to the addition of former Portland big man LaMarcus Aldridge.

Shark Bites
  • The UNDER is 7-1 in the last 8 meetings in Oklahoma City.
  • The Spurs are 2-9 ATS in the last 11 meetings in Oklahoma City.
  • The favorite is 18-7-1 ATS in the last 26 meetings.

Billy Donovan will make his debut on the bench for the Thunder after making the jump from the NCAA. Both the Spurs and Thunder ranked in the middle of the pack at the betting window last season, as San Antonio finished with an ATS mark of 41-39-2 while the Thunder went 39-41-2 ATS.

San Antonio went 2-1 SU and ATS against the Thunder in the three meetings between the clubs last season.

Tip-Off in Memphis: Cavs vs Grizz Odds

Cleveland Lebron James

After opening the season with a loss in Chicago last night, NBA schedule makers are keeping LeBron James and company busy as the Cavs visit the Grizzlies tonight at FedExForum. Last season the Cavs were 2-5 ATS in the second game of back-to-backs.

The Grizzlies enter the season looking to build upon last season’s fifth place finish in the crowded Western Conference. The core of the Grizzlies is back from last season, with Marc Gasol and Mike Conley expected to lead the way. The team brought in rugged veteran Matt Barnes who will add toughness and a defensive presence. 

Cleveland dropped a close one in Chicago last night, but had a balanced effort with four players scoring double digit points. LeBron James and Kevin Love didn’t seemed hobbled by injuries as they both played over 34 minutes.

The teams played twice last season with the Cavs winning both games by scores of 105-91 and 111-89.

MLB: Royals vs Mets Game 2 WS Odds

Mets pitcher deGrom

After a 14-inning thriller in Game 1 of the World Series, the Royals will look to grab a commanding 2-0 lead over the Mets. Royals bettors and fans will be happy know that the Game 1 winner has won 16 of the past 18 World Series, including the last five in a row. As of Tuesday morning, the Royals were listed as -175 favorites to win the series on Bodog. 

Jacob deGrom will be tasked will halting Kansas City’s momentum tonight, as he’ll look to add to his impressive playoff resume. In 20 total innings pitched this postseason, deGrom has allowed just four runs while registering 27 strikeouts over his three starts. All three of his playoff starts have been on the road, so he shouldn’t be phased by the Kauffman Stadium crowd.

Johnny Cueto, meanwhile, will take the hill for the Royals in hopes of improving upon his ugly 7.88 ERA thus far in the 2015 Postseason. Cueto has been far from ace-like for the Royals, but was a much better pitcher at home this season, with an ERA almost a run lower at home compared to pitching on the road. He’s also been successful at silencing some of the Mets’ big bats throughout his career, as Daniel Murphy and Lucas Duda are a combined 6 for 32 vs Cueto.

Crosby Has Gotten the Better of Ovechkin

Sidney Crosby and Alexander Ovechkin

It is more than a decade since Sidney Crosby and Alexander Ovechkin have entered the NHL and since being drafted they have not disappointed. However, ‘Sid the Kid’ and his Pittsburgh Penguins have gotten the better of ‘Alexander The Great's’ Washington Capitals, with the Pens going 21-12 in the 33 meetings between the two teams since their superstars joined their team.

Both Crosby and Ovechkin have put up some phenomenal stats during their head-to-head encounters. Crosby has tallied 18 goals and 33 assists while Ovie has potted 22 goals and 16 assists through their 33 games against one another.

The two phenoms will be looking to rack up the score against consistent goaltenders. Marc-Andre Fluery, who has posted a 2.02 GAA this season, has started every game this season for the Penguins and Wednesday looks no different. The Caps will likely turn to Braden Holtby for his seventh start of the season as the goaltender has posted a 2.03 GAA this year.

TCU Continues to Cash At Home

TCU continues to excel at home, with the Horned Frogs winning 11-straight games SU at Forth Worth, but they have also sported a stellar 9-2 ATS record in those games. Amon G. Carter Stadium will be the site when TCU hosts the West Virginia Mountaineers Thursday.

West Virginia got a much needed week off after watching their defense give up 62 points and 693 yards of offense to the powerhouse Baylor offense. The Mountaineers are in the middle of one of the toughest stretches in college football this season as they are about to play their fourth consecutive game against a Top 25 team to begin conference play, a first for any Big 12 team. 

Quarterback Trevone Boykin is one of the few people in the Heisman conversation as the senior has put TCU on his back with 25 touchdowns and only five interceptions this season. He has also added another five touchdowns with his feet this season.

Warriors Begin Title Defense vs Pelicans

New Orleans Pelicans Anthony Davis

The long road towards defending the NBA championship begins Tuesday in Calirfornia when the Golden State Warriors open yet another season in the Association opposite Anthony Davis and the New Orleans Pelicans. The matchup will be a rematch of the opening round of last year's postseason when the Dubs made the Pelicans' playoff experience a brief one, effectively sweeping them in convincing fashion.

Shark Bites
  • The Pelicans are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 meetings.
  • The UNDER is 8-3-1 in the Pelicans' last 12 overall.
  • The UNDER is 8-1-2 in the Warriors' last 11 home games.

Injuries have been a recurring problem for the Pels over the last few seasons and tonight's contest is no different. New Orleans has six players dealing with injuries including Tyreke Evans who has been sidelined six-to-eight weeks after getting knee surgery.

Oracle Arena, otherwise known as the loudest home stadium in the league, has not been kind to New Orleans in recent years. The Pelicans are winless in their last five trips to the Bay Area.
