UFC 131 Betting Results

There weren't many surprises at UFC 131 over the weekend, as the favorites came out on top in every bout on the main card.


California tops Miss USA odds

Katy Perry sings that girls from The Golden State are unforgettable and undeniable, and the oddsmakers seem to be in agreement as Miss California has been set as the 9/2 favorite to win this Sunday's Miss USA Pageant.

Historically, the women of California have had success at this event, with five wins. That's second only to Texas, which boasts nine victories. California, though, will be looking to end a drought this weekend, as the state last won the pageant back in 1992.


Stanley Cup Final Odds: Game 6

The Vancouver Canucks are one win away from claiming their first Stanley Cup in franchise history as they journey to Boston to face the Bruins in Game 6 of the Cup final on Monday.

After getting embarrassed in Boston in Games 3 and 4 the Canucks regrouped at home and rebounded with a 1-0 win in Game 5 as a -160 favorite. Roberto Luongo, who had been roasted in Boston, picked up his game and recorded the shutout after making 31 saves. Maxim Lapierre scored the lone goal for Vancouver, his second of the postseason.


MLB Power Rankings: June 13

There's a surprising new No. 1 in the MLB Power Rankings this week as the computer crunched the numbers and handed the New York Yankees the top spot.


Dallas Completes NBA Longshot Title

When the regular season ended, the ragtag group of veterans and castoffs surrounding Dirk Nowitzki in Dallas was a 20/1 longshot to win the NBA title.

Good thing for Mavericks fans that nobody told the players they had no chance of winning.

The Mavs completed a 4-2 win over Miami on Sunday and fans cheered Nowitzki's longtime search for a title and jeered the Heat, whose free agency moves to bring in LeBron James and Chris Bosh were derided.


MLB Betting: Angels vs. Mariners

Division rivals clash tonight as the Los Angeles Angels open up a three-game series in Seattle with the Mariners.

Dan Haren (5-4, 2.41) gets the start for the Angels tonight while Jason Vargas (4-3, 3.94) goes for Seattle. Haren allowed three runs on eight hits in seven innings in a loss against Tampa Bay in his last start. Vargas recorded a no decision last time out after giving up three runs on seven hits in 7 1-3 innings.


NBA Final Odds: Mavericks vs Heat

The Dallas Mavericks can claim their first NBA title tonight if they can get past the Miami Heat in Game 6 of the NBA Finals but oddsmakers don't like their chances, according to the betting line at most shops.

All the Heat taunting will end and all the Heat haters will rejoice if Dallas can win. Bettors hope they do that and also cover the spread and the best Mavs line this morning was at Bovada at +6.

Dallas took a 3-2 series lead with a 112-103 win in Game 6 as a 1-point favorite. Dirk Nowitzki led the Mavericks with 29 points while Dwyane Wade had 23 points and eight assist for Miami. But Dallas has won 13 of the past 15 meetings against Miami. [ Check out a second Game 6 Preview here at OddsShark.com ]
