Chicago White Sox vs Cleveland Indians Baseball Live Odds

Chicago White Sox vs Cleveland Indians Odds – Baseball Betting: The MLB match between Chicago White Sox and Cleveland Indians will kick off on April 16, 2010 at 7:05 PM ET. This match will takes place at Progressive Field, Cleveland, Ohio.

Cleveland took two of three games from the Chicago White Sox to open the season. However, the Indians didn't fare well against Mark Buehrle in that series.

Baseball Betting

The left-hander looks for another strong outing as the visiting White Sox open a weekend set with the Indians on Friday night.

A four-time All-Star, Buehrle (2-0, 2.40 ERA) allowed three hits in seven innings of a 6-0 win over Cleveland at U.S. Cellular Field on April 5. The left-hander also made a spectacular play when he stuck his leg out and knocked Lou Marson's one-hopper into foul territory. Then he used his glove to shovel the ball between his legs to first baseman Paul Konerko to retire the runner.

MLB Preview - Houston Astros vs Chicago Cubs Live Odds, Predictions

Baseball Betting - Houston Astros vs Chicago Cubs Odds:  The MLB match between Houston Astros and Chicago Cubs will kick off on April 16, 2010 at 2:20 PM ET. The match will takes place at Wrigley Field, Chicago, Illinois.
Baseball Betting
Having hit 100 homers at Wrigley Field, Derrek Lee has added his name to an impressive list in Chicago Cubs history.
Strong performances against the Houston Astros last year helped him reach that mark.

Coming off a loss but still hot at the plate, the Cubs look to bounce back Friday against an Astros team that seeks back-to-back wins following a season-opening eight-game skid.

After scoring 16 runs while winning the first two games of a series with Milwaukee, Chicago (4-5) couldn't overcome a poor effort from its pitchers in the finale, losing 8-6 on Thursday.

Chicago’s first baseman has four homers in his last eight home games against the Astros (1-8), batting .407 with three doubles and eight RBIs during that stretch. Lee’s one hit in two career at-bats against Houston’s scheduled starter, Felipe Paulino (0-0, 7.20 ERA), was a home run.

Paulino gets the nod in the opener of this three-game set after struggling in his first outing, allowing four runs, four hits and four walks in five innings of a 9-6 loss to Philadelphia on Saturday night.

ATP Monte-Carlo Rolex Masters Semi Finals - David Ferrer vs Philipp Kohlschreiber

2010 ATP Monte-Carlo Rolex Masters Semi Final NewsSportsbook: Spanish Davis Cup Hero David Ferrer will attempt to secure his first semifinal berth at the Monte-Carlo Rolex Masters, as he faces tricky opponent Philipp Kohlschreiber for an eighth career-meeting on Friday.

Sportsbook

Ferrer looked in impressive form in his quarterfinal match against German Philipp Kohlschreiber to reach the semifinals of the 2010 Monte Carlo Rolex Masters, an ATP World Tour 1000 event, being played here in the picturesque city of Monte Carlo, Monaco.

Eleventh seed David Ferrer holds a slender 4-3 advantage in the head-to-head-series with quarterfinal challenger Philipp Kohlschreiber. The Spaniard had a losing record against the German until 2009, when he captured back-to-back, hard-court victories in Auckland and Dubai. The players have split two previous meetings on clay, with each winner taking his respective match in straight sets.

The World No. 17 advanced to his fifth Monte-Carlo quarterfinal without dropping a set, earning routine wins over qualifiers Peter Luczak and Andrey Golubev. Ferrer followed with a straight-set success against eighth seed Ivan Ljubicic on Thursday, downing the veteran 6-0, 7-6(4) in 91 minutes of play.

2010 Verizon Heritage PGA Tour Predictions, Picks and Odds

2010 Verizon Heritage PGA Tour Predictions @ Sportsbook: The Verizon Heritage tournament in PGA Golf tour will start on today i.e. 15 April, 2010. This Verizon Heritage tournament will be from April 15, 2010 to April 18, 2010.

Verizon Heritage. It's a legacy and tradition -- a storied PGA TOUR golf tournament that's been hosted by Harbour Town Golf Links for more than 36 years. In that time, legends such as Nicklaus, Palmer, Norman, and Love III have competed for the champion's tartan jacket. With more than three decades of rich history, this event's champions have combined for 375 PGA Tour victories -- including 66 major championships -- and the purse has increased from $100,000 in 1969 to $5.7 million in 2010. Scheduled for April 12-18, 2010, this landmark PGA TOUR tournament promises to draw many of the biggest names on tour.

The first major of the year behind us, the golf world moves on this week. The European Tour goes to China for the Volvo China Open. The PGA Tour heads to Harbour Town Golf Links in South Carolina for the Verizon Heritage.

After The Masters, many of the top players are taking the week off. But one player you can absolutely count on playing at Harbour Town is Davis Love III. That's because Love is a 5-time winner of the event.

The defending champ at Harbour Town is Brian Gay, who won in 2009 by a whopping 10 strokes. Also in the field are Jim Furyk, Paul Casey, K.J. Choi, John Daly, Sergio Garcia, Camilo Villegas and Rickie Fowler.

Philadelphia Flyers vs New Jersey Devils Live Odds and Predictions - NHL Playoffs

Philadelphia Flyers vs New Jersey Devils Live Odds @ Sportsbook: The NHL match between Philadelphia Flyers and New Jersey Devils will kick off on April 16, 2010 at 7:30 PM ET. The match will takes place at Prudential Center, Newark, New Jersey.

These two teams will be opponents for the fourth time in a Stanley Cup Playoff series.

Martin Brodeur has been around long enough to not be offended by the booing the New Jersey Devils fans gave the team in its Game 1 loss to the Philadelphia Flyers.

The fans expect a lot, and they got frustrated watching the Devils drop a 2-1 decision on Wednesday night. For many, it was the start to another early postseason exit by the Atlantic Division champion Devils, who haven't gotten out of the first round in the last two seasons.

Ottawa Senators vs Pittsburgh Penguins Live Odd and Predictions

Ottawa Senators vs Pittsburgh Penguins Live Odds @ Sportsbook:  The NHL Match between Ottawa Senators and Pittsburgh Penguins will kick off on April 16, 2010 at 7:00 PM ET. The match will takes place at Mellon Arena, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

One game into their Stanley Cup defense, the Pittsburgh Penguins already have been reminded that consistency and determination can be as important as star power in winning a playoff round.
NHL Hockey Betting


The Ottawa Senators lack players with the offensive skills and postseason portfolios of Sidney Crosby, Evgeni Malkin and Jordan Staal. They do possess a sound game plan, excellent defensemen and a commitment to make an Eastern Conference first-round series that was supposed to be a Penguins walkover into an extended, difficult-to-win round.

Ottawa Senators VS Pittsburgh Penguins are now having their first Playoffs match this year. Three games remaining tonight for the NHL playoffs. Early this night, Philadelphia Flyers VS New Jersey Devils started their game at 7:30 PM. Detroit VS Phoenix will be at 10:00 PM EDT and Colorado Avalanche VS San Jose Sharks at 10:30 PM EDT.

FC Cologne vs VfL Bochum Live Odds and Predictions @ Sportsbook: The match between FC Cologne and VfL Bochum will kick off on April 16, 2010, 19:30 UK at RheinEnergieStadion.

Cologne will all but guarantee Bundesliga survival by recording just a third home win of the season at home to Bochum tomorrow.

Zvonimir Soldo's side have a seven-point cushion over the bottom three and are six points ahead of their opponents.
Another victory tomorrow, to follow on from Saturday's win in Hoffenheim, would take them almost certainly unassailable 10 points clear of their relegation rivals, most of whom will have a game in hand.

Inter Milan vs Juventus Live Odds, Preview and Predictions

Inter Milan vs Juventus Live Odds and Predictions at Sportsbook: The match between Inter Milan and Juventus will kick off on April 16, 2010 at 19:45 UK. The match will takes place at Giuseppe Meazza Stadium, Milan.

Juventus coach Alberto Zaccheroni has called for his players to put all non-footballing issues firmly to one side as they prepare for the Derby d'Italia against Inter Milan, knowing that victory is a must if they are to keep their Champions League bid alive.
Soccer Betting
The two teams have dominated the headlines over the past week as, amid new investigations into the infamous match-fixing scandal which saw Juventus demoted in 2006, Inter have also come into the spotlight.

Inter have strenuously denied any wrongdoing after tapes emerged apparently documenting conversations between Nerazzurri president Massimo Moratti and former referees' chief Paolo Bergamo.

Matches between the two are always fiercely contested even without the shadow of Calciopoli and talk that Zaccheroni could once again prevent Inter from winning the title - something he achieved while Lazio coach in 2002.

Baseball: Florida Vs Philadelphia Preview

Baseball betting: Florida Vs Philadelphia  Preview: After 12 seasons with Toronto, which included winning the Cy Young Award in 2003, Halladay (2-0 0.56 ERA) was traded in December as part of a three-team, eight-player deal to Philadelphia (7-2). He’s made road starts against Washington and Houston, giving up one earned run over 16 innings while striking out 17.

The right-hander pitched his first NL complete game Sunday against the Astros, allowing seven hits and striking out eight in the 2-1 victory. The run Houston scored was unearned.

“You just go until they tell you you’re done,” said Halladay, who pitched nine complete games in each of the last two seasons with the Blue Jays. “Obviously, if you go out for the ninth, you know you’ve got a chance to finish it.”

Halladay has faced the Marlins (6-4) twice in his career, including last season when he left after three innings due to a sore groin. He is 0-1 with a 5.00 ERA over those outings.

MLB Baseball Betting: Cincinnati Vs Pittsburgh Preview

MLB Baseball Betting: Cincinnati Vs Pittsburgh Preview: After batting .322 with 25 home runs and 84 RBIs in 131 games last season, Votto is hitting .263 with a homer and two RBIs through the first 10 games of 2010. He averaged a strikeout every 4.4 at-bats in 2009, but is averaging one every 2.9 at-bats this year.

Although it’s been a struggle early for Votto, he has had no such trouble in Pittsburgh.

The Reds first baseman hit .472 (17 for 36) with seven doubles, eight RBIs and had a .548 on-base percentage in nine games at PNC Park in 2009. Cincinnati (5-5) won six of those games and went 13-5 against Pittsburgh last season.

While Votto has battered most Pirates pitchers, he’s had his most success against Duke, going 10 for 16 with five doubles lifetime. Consequently, Duke went 1-4 with a 4.65 ERA in five starts against the Reds in 2009.

Duke (2-0, 3.00 ERA) has gotten off to an encouraging start to this season, though, winning his first two outings. Pittsburgh (4-5), which lost to San Francisco 6-0 on Wednesday, is 2-5 when Duke isn’t on the mound.

MLB Betting: Houston (1-8) Vs Chicago(4-5) Preview

baseball betting
MLB Betting: Huston (1-8) Vs Chicago(4-5) Preview: Coming off a loss but still hot at the plate, the Cubs look to bounce back Friday against an Astros team that seeks back-to-back wins following a season-opening eight-game skid.

After scoring 16 runs while winning the first two games of a series with Milwaukee, Chicago (4-5) couldn’t overcome a poor effort from its pitchers in the finale, losing 8-6 on Thursday.

“It’s hard to win when the other team keeps adding runs,” manager Lou Piniella said.

The Cubs’ lineup, though, had another strong game, reaching double digits in hits for the third straight contest. Lee, Marlon Byrd(notes) and Aramis Ramirez(notes) all homered for Chicago.

Lee hit his second homer of the season, and became the 10th player to hit 100 at Wrigley Field, joining Sammy Sosa(notes) (293), Ernie Banks (290), Billy Williams (231), Ron Santo (212), Ryne Sandberg (164), Hank Sauer (118), Gabby Hartnett (115), Andre Dawson (110) and Hack Wilson (109).

NHL Betting: Boston vs Buffalo

NHL Betting: Boston vs Buffalo - BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP)—Ryan Miller(notes) was the Buffalo Sabres’ difference maker all regular-season long. Turns out his role hasn’t changed in the playoffs.

Miller was remarkable in making 38 saves—including 23 in the second period — in the Sabres’ 2-1 playoff-opening victory over the Boston Bruins on Thursday night

“When he’s at the top of his game, we’re a very, very difficult team to play against,” captain Craig Rivet(notes) said. “Tonight, Ryan showed when he’s playing well and he’s confident, I think you see the confidence you see the team plays with.”

That confidence was apparent in Rivet’s performance.

Sportsbook Online: Colorado vs San Jose Preview

NHL Hockey Bet Colorado vs San Jose: The Sharks spent the days leading up to the series opener talking about how this group of players had never experienced the playoffs together and comparisons to past Sharks teams were unwarranted.

But it’s hard not to dwell on those past failures when history seems to repeat itself every year. The Sharks lost a series opener at home for the fourth straight playoff series, losing Game 1 to the eighth-seeded Avalanche when Chris Stewart’s(notes) centering pass deflected off Sharks captain Rob Blake’s(notes) skate and into the net for the game-winning goal with 50 seconds left.

NHL Betting: Detroit vs Phoenix Preview

NHL Betting - Derek Morris and Keith Yandle accounted for two of the Coyotes’ three goals and three of their five assists.

To have further success in the postseason, Tippett said, it is imperative his defensemen continue to put the puck in the net.

“They have to be part of our scoring committee,” he said.

“All our defense has an accountability to play defense, and they have an accountability to play offense. We need that push on the offensive side of the game. We expect them to be involved in just about every rush. Fortunately this year we’ve capitalized on a lot of those chances.”

Check Nashville vs Chicago live Odds & Picks

NHL Hockey Bet - Two years ago, playing with Pittsburgh, his team lost to Detroit. Last season, while with the Red Wings, he fell short against the Penguins. Two straight trips to the championship round, two straight losses.

“You’re always hungry,” Hossa said. “In one way it was disappointing. … But I consider myself lucky because not too many players go to the final anyway. It was a great experience, a tough finish and I’m looking forward for a better finish this year.”

Hossa, who needed shoulder surgery after joining the Blackhawks, finished with 24 goals and 27 assists in 57 games this season. After scoring 40 goals for the Red Wings last season, he played with the sore shoulder during the playoffs and managed just six goals in 23 postseason games—none in the finals.

NHL Hockey Bet: Philadelphia vs New Jersey Preview

NHL Hockey Bet - The fans expect a lot, and they got frustrated watching the Devils drop a 2-1 decision on Wednesday night. For many, it was the start to another early postseason exit by the Atlantic Division champion Devils, who haven’t gotten out of the first round in the last two seasons.

As far as the Devils are concerned, they played better than the Flyers in Game 1, limiting them to 14 shots. They just didn’t win the opener in the best-of-7 series that will resume on Friday night at the Prudential Center.

“It’s important to have that feeling and to say: ‘Well that game is over,”’ Brodeur said Thursday after practice. “Yes, we’re down 1-0 and there’s not much we can do about it. Actually, there is nothing we can do about it. The only thing you can control is the next time you’re on the ice and you have to get yourself ready.”

The one thing the Devils need to improve is their power play. It was 0-for-5 against the Flyers and goaltender Brian Boucher(notes) and didn’t generate a lot of chances.

Ottawa vs Pittsburgh NHL Betting Preview

NHL Hockey Bet : The Ottawa Senators lack players with the offensive skills and postseason portfolios of Sidney Crosby(notes), Evgeni Malkin(notes) and Jordan Staal(notes). They do possess a sound game plan, excellent defensemen and a commitment to make an Eastern Conference first-round series that was supposed to be a Penguins walkover into an extended, difficult-to-win round.

Deep down, the Penguins probably expected their true challenges to come in later rounds against Washington and/or New Jersey, teams they didn’t defeat once this season. The Senators’ surprise 5-4 victory in Game 1 changed all that.

Game 2 on Friday isn’t necessarily a must-win game for the Penguins, who came back from 2-0 deficits twice while winning the Stanley Cup last spring. But it’s as close as it gets.

Hockey Betting: Canadiens upset Capitals 3-2 in OT in Game 1 - Recap


Hockey Betting: WASHINGTON (AP)—Alex Ovechkin(notes) didn’t have a shot on goal. Not a single one. The NHL’s best scoring machine got upstaged by a player who, in the spirit of the week’s bit of trash-talking, did his best impersonation of Jaromir Jagr(notes).

On a night in which the two-time reigning MVP was neutralized, Tomas Plekanec(notes) was the perfect spoil sport for the Montreal Canadiens, scoring 13:19 into overtime as the Eastern Conference’s No. 8 seed beat the top-seeded Washington Capitals 3-2.

It was Plekanec who traded gibes this week with Washington goalie Jose Theodore(notes). Hockey Betting

Plekanec basically said that Theodore was no Martin Brodeur(notes) or Ryan Miller(notes), and Theodore shot back that Plekanec wasn’t exactly Jagr. Just to add to the fun, Plekanec’s jersey number on the greaseboard in the Canadiens’ locker room was listed as Jagr’s 68—instead of Plekanec’s 14.

“It was the first day that quote came out … I didn’t like it, but we have had a good laugh about it the next day,” Plekanec said. “I never said anything bad about their goaltending. I said they had really good goalies and they proved it.”

Theodore also laughed off the back-and-forth between the two, as well as the irony that he gave up the deciding goal to the player he needled.

“It was just to set up the mood for the playoffs,” Theodore said. “Tomas is a great player.”

Plekanec silenced the sellout crowd by taking the puck near the red line, skating into the offensive zone and scoring on a drive from high in the slot that beat Theodore to the stick side, making Montreal the latest among several lower-seeded teams to pull a Game 1 upset in the NHL playoffs this week.

Jagr would have been proud.

“There was a couple of jokes thrown at him after the game, I’m not going to lie to you,” said Mike Cammalleri, who scored in the first period for the Canadiens.

But the most amazing development was the blank sheet from Ovechkin, who scored 50 goals in the regular season and took an NHL-high 368 shots.

Ovechkin said Thursday morning he might be “a little bit nervous and a little bit shaky” in his third go-round in the playoffs, and maybe that caused him and his teammates to use up all their energy in the first period—because the Capitals controlled the flow of play early, then appeared to tire as the game wore on.

“He didn’t play good,” Washington coach Bruce Boudreau said. “They gapped up real well on him, but I don’t think Alex played very well. … Our best players weren’t our best players tonight, and their best players were.”

It didn’t help that Ovechkin was shadowed most everywhere he went by defenseman Jaroslav Spacek(notes), or that he had five shot attempts blocked. The Capitals played at their preferred up-and-down pace for a little more than a period—and the Canadians controlled the rest of the game.

“Right now I’m mad, and right now we’re disappointed, but tomorrow’s a new day,” said Ovechkin, who was held without a shot only once in the regular season. “They just don’t give us the room. They put two guys in front of me … We’re going to watch the game and make some changes.”

Game 2 is Saturday night in Washington.

The Capitals had their best season in franchise history and won the Presidents’ Trophy for the first time, while the Canadiens didn’t secure a playoff berth until the next-to-last day. Washington had 313 goals, the most by a team since 1995-96. It also led the NHL with 213 5-on-5 goals, while Montreal was last with 132.

Sure enough, the Capitals were outshooting the Canadiens 7-0 after 6 minutes, and Ovechkin was throwing himself about the ice.

But the Canadiens’ power play was solid—ranking second only behind the Capitals’—and it paid off after Nicklas Backstrom(notes) took an unwise retaliation penalty for cross-checking Spacek midway through the first period.

Twenty-five seconds later, Cammalleri took Andrei Markov’s(notes) pass and beat Theodore stick side with a drive from the right circle.

The Capitals tied it later in the period on Joe Corvo’s(notes) wrister from the blue line. Washington outshot the Canadiens 19-7 in the first 20 minutes.

The flow of play was more to the Canadiens’ liking in the second, but the visitors couldn’t capitalize. Backstrom, who spent much of the last few days in bed with an illness, gave the Capitals the lead 47 seconds into the third period, but Montreal tied it again when Scott Gomez(notes) got behind defenseman Mike Green(notes) to tap in Brian Gionta’s(notes) pass with about 12 1/2 minutes left in regulation.

“In the second period they pushed pretty hard, and I think we let them in the game a little bit,” Backstrom said. “And that’s something we can’t do.”

NOTES: Perhaps the Canadiens drew inspiration from Wednesday’s results, when three of four games were won by lower-seeded teams—and the fourth was widely considered an upset, too. “It’s been talked about. I don’t think it is anything new to anybody, but it reaffirms to you that anything can happen,” Cammalleri said after the morning’s skate. Unfortunately, Cammalleri couldn’t watch those Wednesday games because he couldn’t get them on the TV in his hotel room. “Happened to me last year, too,” he said. … The Capitals sold out every game this season for the first time, and 18,000 red-clad, towel-waving fans got going from the moment that the Stanley Cup was shown on the video screen before the game, accompanied by the words “Nothing Else Matters.”

Sheets delivers first win since joining A’s


MLB Betting: Sheets delivers first win since joining A’s: OAKLAND, Calif. (AP)—Ben Sheets(notes) pounded the strike zone like his old aggressive self and finally commanded his fastball, winning for the first time since September 2008 in the Oakland Athletics’ 6-2 victory over the Baltimore Orioles on Thursday night.
Sheets (1-0), who missed all of 2009 recovering from elbow surgery, pitched six scoreless innings and made good for the first time on general manager Billy Beane’s bold offseason move of giving him $10 million to be the A’s new ace. Beane believed Sheets could return to the form that has made him a four-time All-Star.

The 31-year-old right-hander gave up five hits, struck out four and walked three to win for the first time since a five-hit shutout of San Diego on Sept. 6, 2008, while with Milwaukee.

Oakland gave Sheets a one-year contract in January, 11 months after his elbow surgery.

Ryan Sweeney(notes) had an RBI groundout and a fifth-inning double to give him a 10-game hitting streak to start the season and Kevin Kouzmanoff(notes) and Eric Chavez(notes) each hit sacrifice flies for the A’s, who got back on track offensively. Cliff Pennington(notes) drove in a pair of runs.

Oakland managed only two runs total in its previous two losses in Seattle after winning the series opener against the Mariners 4-0 on Monday at Safeco Field.

Baltimore couldn’t do much against Sheets and lost its seventh straight.

At 1-9, the Orioles are off to the club’s worst start since going 0-21 in 1988 before finally getting a win. They kicked off a tough 10-game road trip with another demoralizing defeat—perhaps the highlight was a warm ovation for Miguel Tejada(notes) from his former fans in the Bay Area, where he won the 2002 AL MVP award.

Nick Markakis(notes) hit a sacrifice fly to center in the seventh for the Orioles’ first run, then Adam Jones(notes) added an RBI triple off Jerry Blevins(notes) with two outs in the ninth.

Baltimore starter David Hernandez(notes) (0-2) allowed seven hits and five runs— four earned—in five innings, struck out six and walked one.

Injured Baltimore second baseman Brian Roberts(notes), placed on the 15-day disabled list Monday with a strained abdominal muscle that also has re-aggravated a herniated disk in his back, is scheduled to be examined by spine specialist Dr. Lee Riley on Friday in Baltimore. Roberts received an epidural injection Monday.

Notes: Oakland won the season series last year 5-1, sweeping three at the Coliseum. … With Orioles closer Mike Gonzalez on the disabled list because of a strained left shoulder, manager Dave Trembley expects RHP Jim Johnson(notes) to pick up much of the load in save situations. He also will make decisions based on matchups. … A’s 2B Mark Ellis(notes), nursing a strained hamstring, took grounder and batting practice. “He’s close,” Manager Bob Geren said. “He’s feeling better each day.” … The A’s extended their contract with the Class A Stockton Ports through the 2014 season.
