Halos Hate Playing in the Bronx

The confines of Yankee Stadium have been anything but friendly to the Los Angeles Angels as of late. The Angels, who have dropped the first three of their four-game series with the Yanks in the Bronx, will be seeking to stop an eight-game skid on Thursday.

Shark Bites
  • The Angels are 1-4 in their last 5 games.
  • The UNDER is 5-1-1 in the last 7 meetings between the Yankees and Angels.
  • The OVER is 5-1-1 in the Angels' last 7 road games.

With a win today, the Yankees would improve to 24-8 in their last 32 games at home against the Halos. Newcomer Chris Parmalee has stepped up in a big way since joining the Bronx Bombers and hit two home runs in Wednesday’s 12-6 victory.

Jhoulys Chacin and Ivan Nova will get the start for the Angels and Yankees. Chain has a 3.73 ERA in five starts since being traded to the Angels last month, while Nova (4-3, 4.41) has lasted just six innings in each of his last four starts but has given up 13 runs in 18.5 innings over his last three outings.

PGA: Major Odds for Spieth & Day

Jason Day Jordan Spieth PGA

Anyone who hasn’t been living under a rock for the last few years could tell you the days of dominance by one man on the PGA Tour are long gone. Tiger Woods will forever be remembered as one of the best golfers to ever swing a club, but it’s quite clear his time of being a perennial contender is well in the rear-view mirror.

Some of the most popular bars are even within a short walking distance of Vegas sportsbooks, where you can easily throw down a wager before settling down to enjoy a pint of Guinness or Smithwick’s and watch your favorite team play.

NBA Finals: Exact Series Outcome Odds

Stephen Curry LeBron James

In the wake of an exhilarating semifinals, there was no shortage of storylines for the 2016 NBA Finals. The rematch. Curry vs. LeBron. Blue-collar Ohio vs. plush California. But after a pair of less than exciting opening games (to put it lightly), the championship series has been a complete flop so far.

After hammering Cleveland 104-89 in Game 1 and 110-77 in Game 2, the Warriors are on cruise control right now. To prepare for its conclusion, one online sportsbook is offering a prop special on the correct outcome of the series.

Warriors Top Second Half Team In Playoffs

Maybe you’ve noticed - the Golden State Warriors are pretty freakin’ good during the final 24 minutes of a basketball game.  

The Warriors are statistically the No. 1 second-half team in the NBA these playoffs, piling up an average of 54.6 points and they have a second-half plus-minus of 6.8. 

That second number is really the one that should interest halftime and in-game bettors. It means Golden State is three possessions better than the competition throughout the postseason which is leaving the competition in the dust.

Warriors Have Struggled in Game 3s

Stephen Curry Kyrie Irving

The Cleveland Cavaliers have had no answer for the Golden State Warriors in the 2016 NBA Finals, but they’ll try to climb out of an 0-2 hole in the series when Game 3 gets underway in Ohio on Wednesday. The good news for Cavs backers is the seemingly impenetrable Warriors have been underwhelming in Game 3s, going 2-5 SU in the third game of playoff series under head coach Steve Kerr.

Shark Bites
  • The Cavaliers are 6-0 ATS in their last six games at home.
  • The Warriors are 7-0 SU and 6-1 ATS in their last seven games with a closing total of 205.5 or less.
  • The total has gone UNDER in five of the Cavaliers' last six games with two days off between games.

“It’s a do or die game for us,” LeBron James told reporters on Tuesday. Truthfully, that may be an understatement. Cleveland got absolutely dominated in the opening two games, including a 33-point defeat Sunday night. The Cavs will be ecstatic to get out of the rowdy confines of Oracle Arena and travel back to Quicken Loans Arena, a place where they’re unbeaten in the playoffs.

Cleveland’s lights-out shooting has dried up, and it’s happened across the board. The Cavaliers lit up scoreboards in the first three rounds but have shot just 35.6 percent against the Dubs so far. The Warriors have stepped up on defense, giving up just 88.8 points per game over the last four contests.

The total, which opened at 206, will likely see a lot of action on the UNDER. Stephen Curry and company have gone below the total in four-straight affairs.

Pair Of Aces Take the Mound in San Fran

A full slate of MLB action on Wednesday is capped off with a phenomenal pitching matchup when the Boston Red Sox and San Francisco Giants close out a two-game set. Dominant left-handers David Price and Madison Bumgarner take to the mound in a game that could see very few runners cross the plate.

Price opened the season looking like he may not be worth the $217 million contract that the Red Sox inked him too, but he has been turning it around lately. Price has recorded five-straight quality starts while allowing 10 earned runs in those outings.

Thanks to Bumgarner’s phenomenal play, the Giants have won the lefty’s past eight starts. MadBum has given up a combined seven earned runs through his last eight starts with three no-run outings in that span.

Pirates Have Been Decimating Mets

The Pittsburgh Pirates have been facing little challenge when they take on the New York Mets. The Pirates have won nine consecutive meetings with the Mets with five of those victories coming by three or more runs.  The two clubs will close out their series Wednesday at PNC Park.

If there is one pitcher that may be able to lift the Mets past the Pirates for the first time since June 28, 2014, it is Noah Syndergaard. The fireballer has a ridiculous 1.91 ERA with a 0.96 WHIP so far this season while only allowing more than two runs in an outing twice.

The biggest storyline of this game though may be Jameson Taillon. The 24-year old was the second overall pick in the 2010 MLB Draft – selected between Bryce Harper and Manny Machado – but underwent Tommy John surgery in 2014. Taillon – who has a 2.04 ERA in 10 starts in Triple A this year – will finally be making the first start of his career.

Is an 0-2 Hole Too Deep in NBA Finals?

LeBron James Cleveland Cavaliers

Losing the first two games in an NBA playoff series is not a death sentence, but it’s historically extremely tough to come back from that spot – especially in the NBA Finals.

Since 1977, only two teams that have been down 0-2 in the Finals have gone on to win the title. The 2006 Miami Heat dispatched the Dallas Mavericks in impressive fashion to bring the franchise its first NBA championship, and the 1977 Portland Trail Blazers knocked off the Philadelphia 76ers to win their first and only banner.

Red-Hot Tigers Look To Sweep Jays

The Detroit Tigers look to continue their five-game winning streak – while capping off a sweep of the Toronto Blue Jays – when they take to Comerica Park Wednesday. The Tigers have seen their offense explode during their current winning streak, with the club averaging 7.2 runs per game over their past five outings.

The Blue Jays will hope that R.A. Dickey – the elder statesman of the pitching staff – can limit the high-octane offense of the Tigers. Dickey has been pitching much better on the road, as the knuckleballer has a 2.92 ERA with opponents batting just .201 while travelling this season.

Jordan Zimmermann will be making his second start since returning to the rotation following a groin strain. Zimmermann only pitched 5.2 innings in his last outing – tied for his shortest outing of the season – but his pitch count is expected to increase now that he is fully healed from his injury.
