Luke Rockhold was originally set to defend his UFC Middleweight Championship for the first time against former titleholder Chris Weidman. Instead, Rockhold will face Michael Bisping at UFC 199 following Weidman’s withdrawal due to injury.

NHL: Three Straight Losses Rare for Tampa

Penguins Lightning NHL

The Pittsburgh Penguins will attempt to take a 3-1 series stranglehold tonight in Tampa after winning Games 2 and 3 of the series. A Penguins win won’t come easy though as the Lightning are 10-1 in their last 11 games after consecutive losses. They’ve only lost three straight games once in 2016.

The Penguins were relentless in Game 3, outshooting the Lightning 48 - 28, which led the way for a 4-2 win. The Pens have given Lightning backup goaltender Andrei Vasilevskiy more than he can handle, as he’s faced 115 shots since taking over for Ben Bishop in Game 1. The 21-year-old is expected to be back in net tonight with Bishop listed as doubtful.

The Penguins opened the day as -148 favorites and have a handful of trends working into their favor. As road favorites, they’re on a run that’s seen them go a perfect 7-0 in their last seven games in that spot, and with a day off in between games, they’re 0-0.

The total for the game sits at 5 goals, and hitting the OVER has become the norm in this matchup. The teams have gone OVER in 15 of their last 18 games against each other.

Can Arrieta Stop The Streaking Giants?

One of the best pitchers in baseball – if not the best – takes on the hottest team in the majors when Jake Arrieta and the Chicago Cubs kickoff a weekend series against the San Francisco Giants at AT&T Park Friday. The Giants enter the series riding an eight-game winning streak, but Arreita has allowed a combined nine runs in his eight starts this season.

Opponents have been struggling to score against the Giants during their winning streak – with the Giants allowing a combined 14 runs in those eight contests. The UNDER has been just as hot in those games – not surprisingly – as the Giants and their opponents have failed to top the closing total in their past seven outings.

We all know Jake Arrieta is good, but he has been downright ridiculous in night games this season. The bearded wonder has not allowed a single earned run while holding opponents to a .058 batting average in three night starts this season.

D-Backs Can’t Get It Done in St. Louis

If the Arizona Diamondbacks want to claw their way towards .500, they will need to do something they have struggled with during their weekend series with the Cardinals – win in St. Louis. The D-Backs have dropped their past seven outings in The Gateway to the West and haven’t won a series at Busch Stadium since 2003.

Patrick Corbin will take the bump for the D-Backs, which is a good sign considering his play on the road this season. Corbin has a 1.80 ERA while giving up just five earned runs through 25.0 innings pitched away from home this year.

After a stellar first month of the season, Carlos Martinez has hit the skids in May. The youngster has a 5.40 ERA while registering a loss in each of his three starts this month.

Warriors Failing to Cover in OKC

We knew the Golden State Warriors-Oklahoma City Thunder Western Conference final series was going to be a rollercoaster, and that’s exactly what’s transpired through two games. Game 3 gets underway on Sunday as the action shifts back to Oklahoma.

Shark Bites
  • The Thunder are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games.
  • The UNDER is 5-2 in the Thunder's last 7 games.
  • The Warriors are 0-3-1 ATS in the last 4 meetings in Oklahoma City.

The Thunder were the top rebounding team in the regular season, while the Warriors topped the Association in just about every statistical shooting category. Golden State did its best to combat the Thunder on the glass in Game 2, and that effort resulted in a huge 118-91 victory. The Dubs finished with 15 offensive rebounds and 15 second-chance points, outrebounding OKC by a 62-32 margin.

At this point it’s looking like the Dubs’ big men might be more important than its sharpshooters in this series. Golden State’s Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson can light it up from anywhere, but it’s looking like the matchup will be decided in the paint.

OVER Trending When Tribe/BoSox Clash

If you’re a big fan of high-scoring games on the diamond than you may want to watch the series opener between the Cleveland Indians and Boston Red Sox Friday. The Tribe has gone OVER is six of their past seven while the BoSox have topped the closing total in eight of their past 10. To top if off, the OVER is 6-2 in the past eight meetings between the two clubs.

Cleveland will send Corey Kluber to the mound with the righty trying to find some consistency this season. When Kluber is on he is dominant – with a 0.53 ERA and a 17-to-2 strikeout-to-walk ratio in wins – but is terrible when off – 6.99 ERA in five losses.

Clay Buchholz will get the start for the Red Sox despite some recent struggles. The righty has a 5.50 ERA while giving up four home runs in his past three starts, but the BoSox have gone 3-0 in those outings thanks to the team averaging 8.3 runs of support.

Federer Pulls Out of French Open

Roger Federer French Open

Roger Federer, who was priced at +2000, has pulled out of the the French Open. Earlier Thursday, the Swiss legend posted on his Facebook page that he has "been making steady progress with my overall fitness, but I am still not 100% and feel I might be taking an unnecessary risk by playing in this event before I am really ready."

This marks the first time since the 2000 season that Federer will not be playing in a Grand Slam event; a streak of 65 consecutive tournaments.
