Spurs Aim to Continue Dominance of Grizz

Zach Randolph Tim Duncan

The Walking Dead’s season may have ended for fans of the highly regarded TV show, but the Memphis Grizzlies have epitomized that meaning on the hardwood. The banged up Grizz fell flat on their faces in a Game 1 106-74 rout to the San Antonio Spurs and will be seeking a better effort tonight when Game 2 gets underway in the Lone Star State.

Shark Bites
  • The Spurs are 1-5 ATS in their last six games as home favorites.
  • The Grizzlies are 0-7 SU in their last seven games on the road.
  • The total has gone OVER in five of the Grizzlies' last seven games on the road.

In light of the loss, Memphis is now 0-6 SU and 1-5 ATS in the last six meetings between the squads. The UNDER is also 5-2 in their previous seven matchups.

Newly-crowned Defensive Player of the Year Kawhi Leonard paved the way for the Spurs on Sunday, finishing with four of San Antonio’s 13 steals and three of its nine blocks. The All-Star forward held Matt Barnes to two points on 1-of-7 shooting.

Vince Carter (16 points) and Lance Stephenson (14 points) did their part for the Grizzlies, but no other player scored more than seven. The setback was Memphis’ worst-ever playoff defeat.

Can Stroman Slow Orioles’ Huge Bats?

Toronto Blue Jays’ ace Marcus Stroman will face his toughest task of the season when he takes to the mound against the powerhouse Baltimore Orioles Tuesday. Stroman, who has not registered a loss since returning late last season from a torn ACL, will need to slow down an O’s offense that is averaging 2.1 home runs per game.

Stroman excels at keeping the ball in the dirt with a groundball percentage of 62.2 this season, something he will need to try and continue against the O's. Since returning from his ACL surgery last season, Stroman is 7-0 with a 2.82 ERA in eight starts while only surrendering four home runs.

Baltimore will counter Stroman with right-hander Mike Wright who will be making just his second start of the season. Wright has only faced the Jays twice in his young career, but has struggled to a 9.45 ERA while walking seven batters across 6.2 innings.

Pens Have Been Perfect After a Loss

Crosby Malkin Penguins

If an apple a day keeps the doctor away then perhaps a visit to the big apple will be the cure the Pittsburgh Penguins need to get back on track after getting beaten up by the Rangers on Saturday. The Pens lost the game 4-2 and were out-hit 57 to 25, but they’ve shown tremendous bounce back ability over the past few months, going a perfect 12-0 following a loss.

Taking a bite out of the Rangers at Madison Square Garden is something Pittsburgh has grown accustomed to lately, as they’ve won two straight at MSG with wins on March 13 and 27. The Pens are also hot on the road, as they’ve gone 8-1 in their last nine game outside of the Steel City.

The Rangers enter the home game as a slight underdog, opening the day at EVEN money with Pittsburgh at -110. This is a spot the Rangers have performed well in, as they’re 8-3 in their last 11 games as home dogs.

The game opened with a total of 5.5, and the trends point to an OVER. When facing a closing total of 5.5 or more, the Rangers have gone OVER in four straight, while the Pens have gone OVER in four of their last five in that spot.

CHI’s Struggles Versus Central Continues

Brian Elliott St. Louis Blues Jonathan Toews Chicago Blackhawks NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs

The St. Louis Blues can further tighten their grip on the opening round series with a win over the Chicago Blackhawks in Game 4 Tuesday. The Blues, led by the stellar goaltending of Brian Elliott can take a 3-1 series lead in Chicago and considering how lackluster the Hawks have played versus Central Division teams, there’s a good chance of that happening.

Shark Bites
  • The Blues have gone 5-15 SU in their last 21 visits to Chicago.
  • The Blackhawks are 5-2 SU in their last seven games as favorites.
  • The Blues are 9-1 SU in their last 10 games versus the Western Conference.

The Hawks are currently -165 in moneyline markets at online book Bovada while the Blues come in at +145. As far as the total is concerned, OVER 5 goals is presently EVEN odds while UNDER 5 goals comes in at -120.

The Hawks have struggled versus teams from the Central all season long and have been especially cold of late. In their last 14 meetings against teams from within the division, they have gone just 3-11 SU including the 1-2 series deficit they take into Tuesday’s meeting.

Elliott has stopped 105 of the 109 shots he’s faced, good enough for a sparkling .963 save percentage and 1.28 goals against average. His opposite, Corey Crawford, has been pretty good himself, posting a 1.92 goals against average and .929 save percentage in the three games.

Patrick Kane, the NHL's leading scorer during the regular season, has been held in check (as best a team can) through three games as he’s recorded three points thus far.

The Blues have actually handled the Blackhawks really well dating back to recent regular season meetings. They have gone 4-1 SU in the previous five meetings overall and have held them to just eight goals in those five games.

Marlins Winless At Home This Season

The Miami Marlins have been downright terrible at home this season, with the club going 0-5 at Marlins Park with three of those losses coming against the abysmal Atlanta Braves. If there is one positive to take from the losses, it is that three of the five were by just one run. Miami will try for their first win of the season at home when they host the Washington Nationals Monday.

Jose Fernandez will make his third start of the season after some mediocre performances so far. Fernandez has not pitched a full six innings through his first two games while posting a 5.06 ERA. It has been hit-or-miss for Fernandez as though he has allowed eight hits and six runs in his first two starts, while notching 18 strikeouts.

Tanner Roark will get his second start of the year against the Marlins after the ‘Fins roughed him up in the first outing. Roark went just four innings while giving up nine hits and four runs against Miami on April 7.

Quick Just Cannot Solve Sharks

Jonathan Quick Los Angeles Kings Brent Burns San Jose Sharks NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs

The San Jose Sharks have been Jonathan Quick’s kryptonite all season long and that has certainly spilled into the postseason as the Sharks take a 2-0 series lead into Game 3 at the SAP Center Monday evening.

Shark Bites
  • The total has gone OVER in five of the Sharks’ last six home games.
  • The Sharks are 2-5 SU in their last seven games as favorites.
  • The Kings are 1-5 SU in their last six road games.

Online book Bovada is presently offering the Sharks at -120 in moneyline markets for Game 3 while the Kings are EVEN odds. The total is tabbed at 5 goals with OVER at -105 and UNDER -115.

The Kings netminder lost all three of his starts versus the Sharks in the regular season so is now 0-5 in five starts during the season. He’s allowed six goals in the two playoff games and has stopped just 40 of 46 shots for a save percentage of .870.

Sharks center Joe Pavelski, who scored more points against the Kings during the regular season (10) than any other team he had faced, has paced the Sharks with three goals and one assist in the opening two games.

Quick’s former backup goaltender Martin Jones was stellar in Game 2 stopping 26 of 27 shots en route to the Game 2 victory.

Want a crazy betting stat for this contest? The underdog has gone 7-0 in the previous seven meetings between the Kings and Sharks.
