Sharks Love Facing Anaheim at Home

San Jose Sharks Logan Couture

The San Jose Sharks and Anaheim Ducks have developed a healthy rivalry over the last few years, and the two California clubs are set to square off once again in Northern California in their first clash of the 2015/16 NHL campaign. San Jose kicked off the Pete DeBoer era with a 5-1 victory over the Los Angeles Kings in its season opener, while the Ducks will be making their season debut.

Shark Bites
  • San Jose won the season series last year 4-0-1.
  • Dating back to last year, the Sharks are 2-12 in Saturday games.
  • Ducks RW Jakob Silfverberg will not play after taking an elbow in the head from Raffi Torres last week.

The confines of SAP Centre at San Jose haven’t been friendly to the Ducks in recent clashes. Anaheim is winless in its last seven trips to San Jose.

The Sharks will be attempting to start the season off on the right foot by picking up their second victory after what was a disastrous 2014/15 campaign. San Jose finished 12th in the Western Conference with a 40-33-9 SU record, a far cry from the perennially playoff-bound team we’ve become accustomed to seeing in recent years.

Big 10 Beatdown? OSU vs Terps Odds

Ohio State’s high-octane offense has made them a stellar OVER play with a 16 of their past 23 games finishing above the closing total. The Buckeyes will play host to the slumping Maryland Terrapins this Saturday.

Last season Ohio State averaged 44.8 points per game and though their average has slumped to 34.4 so far this season, they have been easily topping totals.

Maryland’s defense has been awful so far this season. The Terrapins have allowed 31.8 points per game, good for 98th in the nation and have been outscored a whooping 73-6 in their past two contests.

Pac 12 Showdown - Cal vs Utah Odds

The California Golden Bears currently sit atop the Pac-12 with a perfect 2-0 conference record and a 5-0 overall record. Cal has been lethal within the Pac-12 in recent games, with a 5-0 ATS record when visiting conference opponents. Cal will travel to Utah to take on the Utes this Saturday with a lot of confidence.

California quarterback Jared Goff and wide receiver Kenny Lawler have developed some of the best chemistry of any duo in the nation with the two connecting for eight touchdowns this season.

Utah enters this week’s game riding a high after dominating the No.13 Oregon Ducks 62-20 last week. Quarterback Travis Wilson was struggling this season, but emerged in a big way against the Ducks with four passing touchdowns while adding another on the ground.

Nover: Seahawks Set to Slip Under .500?

Entering Week 5 of the NFL season there were 13 teams below .500. The two-time defending NFC champion Seattle Seahawks could join that list after Sunday.

The Seahawks are three-point road underdogs against Cincinnati.

Noted handicapper Steve Fezzik, the only person to win the prestigious SuperContest in Las Vegas two years in a row, isn't worried about Seattle. He has the Seahawks as the third-best team on his NFL power rankings behind only New England and Green Bay.

Leafs' Babcock Set to Make Detroit Return

Red Wings Maple Leafs Jake Gardiner Mike Green

The Detroit Red Wings play host to the Toronto Maple Leafs to open the 2015/16 NHL season on Friday but instead of the players, it’s the man on the bench for the road squad that is making all the headlines. Maple Leafs head coach Mike Babcock, who departed Detroit in the offseason to sign a 8-year, $50 million with Toronto, has since become the highest-paid bench boss in the league.

Shark Bites
  • The Under is 5-0 in the last five meetings between the two clubs.
  • Howard will start Friday, but Mrazek will start Saturday against Carolina.
  • Toronto will have the same lineup as Thursday against the Canadiens.

Babcock will have his work cut out for him in the Big Smoke as the Leafs are coming off a forgettable season that saw the club finish second-last in the Eastern Conference at 30-44-8 SU. But unlike seasons past, the Buds decided to commit to a full rebuild in the offseason and have begun the long approach to building a contender from the ground up.

The ever-steady Detroit Red Wings extended their consecutive playoff streak to 22 years last season, extending the North American record in the process. Starting netminder Jimmy Howard stumbled down the home stretch last year and nearly lost his job to backup Petr Mrazek, but is expected to be between the pipes Friday evening. Jonathan Bernier is slated to counter for the Leafs.

Cowboys Rare Double-Digit Home Dogs

The Dallas Cowboys are in unfamiliar territory for Sunday’s contest with the New England Patriots, being tabbed as double-digit home underdogs for the first time since 1990.

New England (3-0 SU, 2-0-1 ATS) will have some fresh legs thanks to a Week 4 bye, while the Cowboys (2-2 SU, 1-3 ATS) are badly banged up and are clearly missing two of their franchise players in star quarterback Tony Romo and talented wideout Dez Bryant.

Despite the rest, the Pats are historically poor performers after a bye week for bettors. Bill Belichick’s crew are just 1-4-1 ATS in the last six years following the bye.

Covering the spread hasn’t been an easy task for the Cowboys at AT&T Stadium. The ‘Boys are an ugly 1-6 ATS in their last seven home contests.

Alabama Struggling to Cover the Spread

Alabama may be 16-5 SU in their past 21 games, but they’ve been bad at covering the spread with a lowly 6-14-1 ATS record since November, 2013. The Crimson Tide will look to rebound from poor ATS play when they host the SEC-rival Arkansas Razorbacks.

Alabama struggled against Arkansas last year to a narrow 14-13 win, but entered that contest favored by nine points. The Tide has been facing massive chalk so far this season with an average closing line of -18.5.

Arkansas has been struggling offensively over their past four games and have just barely averaged more than 20 points per game.

Notre Dame vs Navy Week 6 Odds

Navy and Notre Dame have met on five occasions since October 2010, with each of those games topping the closing total. Those four games have seen Navy and Notre Dame average a combined 68.4 points per game.

Navy’s option offense has been doing its job so far this season with the Midshipmen averaging 339.8 yards per game, which is good for third in the nation. Quarterback Keenan Reynolds has led the way for Navy with nine rushing touchdowns.

Notre Dame is within the top 30 offenses in the nation for points per game, with the Fighting Irish averaging 37.2 points per game this season. 13 of Notre Dame’s 24 offensive touchdowns this season have come from the running game.
