Pittsburgh Penguins vs Montreal Canadiens Game 3 live NHL Betting

NHL Hockey Betting - The Pittsburgh Penguins might feel more at home than the typical visitors to the Bell Centre for a playoff game against the Canadiens. Owned by Montreal-born hockey legend Mario Lemieux, the Pittsburgh Penguins can expect a small share of local support when they take the ice for Game 3 of their Eastern Conference semifinal. Pittsburgh’s lineup boasts four Quebecers, including goalie Marc-Andre Fleury, defenseman Kris Letang, and forwards Maxime Talbot and Pascal Dupuis. And Penguins captain Sidney Crosby, a native of Cole Harbour, Nova Scotia, honed his French while playing junior hockey in Rimouski.

San Jose Sharks vs Detroit Red Wings Game 3 live NHL Odds

NHL Hockey Odds - The San Jose Sharks traditionally fare poorly at Joe Louis Arena. San Jose has won three of nine playoff games in Detroit, losing the last two in the 2007 Western Conference semifinals, and just five of 35 matchups during the regular season. The top-seeded Sharks beat Detroit twice at home and will put the two-time defending Western Conference champions on the brink of elimination if they win Tuesday night in Game 3 at the Red Wings’ storied arena.

Atlanta Hawks vs Orlando Magic Game 1 live NBA Betting

NBA Odds - When the Magic open their Eastern Conference semifinal against the Atlanta Hawks on Tuesday night, eight days will have passed since they swept Charlotte. The Hawks needed the full seven games to get by undermanned Milwaukee, meaning they got a turnaround of little more than 48 hours. The contrasting layoffs heading into the best-of-seven series between the Southeast Division rivals make for intriguing dilemmas. The Magic have been simulating opponents’ players in practice. They studied film and prepared last week as if they were facing Milwaukee when the Bucks led the series 3-2, then threw that information away, practicing late Sunday just so they could wait until Game 7 finished.

Utah Jazz vs Los Angeles Lakers Game 2 live NBA Odds

NBA Betting- The Los Angeles Lakers’ star guard wouldn’t have become a peerless postseason finisher without his performance at the erstwhile Delta Center in 1997, when Bryant spectacularly failed to finish off the Jazz. The 18-year-old rookie’s four infamous airballs late in the final game of that second-round playoff series in Salt Lake City only made Bryant tougher and more determined. Thirteen years later, the calculating veteran makes sure no lead over the Lakers is safe — certainly not the tenuous four-point lead Bryant erased Sunday with a few flicks of his wrist in Game 1 of the clubs’ latest playoff clash.

Rangers have breezed to the title this season and sit 11 points clear of their bitter Glaswegian rivals, but Celtic will be hoping to utilize home advantage to at least put some pride into their disappointing campaign.

The Hoops have finished second to the Ibrox champions in the Clydesdale Bank Premier League title race but not one player made the PFA Scotland team of the year which was announced at the awards dinner in Glasgow.

Celtic have been scoring goals for fun in recent weeks and I can see them finally grabbing some consolation for their poor league campaign and bagging the victory and sending their bitter adversaries back to Ibrox pointless.

Wigan vs Hull And Blackburn Live Odds & Picks

The 37th match day of Premier League concludes today where Wigan will host the game against Hull (13.30 GMT) while Arsenal will face Blackburn (15:00 GMT) on away fixture. For the first time this year Wigan can play without the relegation nightmare. The team will be in Premier League next year and the last two games are an excellent opportunity for the manager to try a couple new faces on the squad. The team is currently at 16th spot of Premiership standings with 35 points after 36 games. They hold a good home record with 6 wins, 6 draws and 6 defeats while they managed to score 17 goals and conceded 22.

Hull, on the other hand, should be considered already relegated as the 18th spot with 28 points after 36 games do not offer any realistic chances to climb above relegation zone. The team holds a disappointing away record where they didn’t manage to secure any wins, just 5 draws and 13 defeats. They scored just 10 goals while they conceded 44.
The game should go straight to Wigan’s hands where the victory will currently boost the team to the 13th spot.

Wigan Chairman Dave Whelan can Rain on Chelsea's parade

Wigan chairman Dave Whelan has promised that Chelsea will not stroll past the Latics on their way to the Premier League title this Sunday, and insists that Roberto Martinez's side have what it takes to spoil the Blues' title party "for the good of football everywhere".

• Wigan 2-2 Hull: Late equaliser relegates Tigers

Chelsea lead Manchester United by a point at the top of the table and with both sides facing seemingly straightforward fixtures on the final day of the season - Chelsea at home to Wigan and United at home to Stoke - it would appear that the title is destined to return to Stamford Bridge for the first time since 2006.

But Whelan, a friend of United boss Sir Alex Ferguson, insists that the outcome of the title race is by no means a foregone conclusion, and has promised that his Wigan side willl do their best to ruin Chelsea's day.

"We have beaten Chelsea once this season, plus Arsenal and Liverpool, so we know we are capable of giving any team a game on our day," Whelan said.

2010 Soccer - Real Madrid vs Osasuna Live Odds & Picks

Real Madrid vs Osasuna Live Odds & Picks @ Sportsbook

After demolishing Real Zaragoza 6-0 in their final league match of 2009, Real Madrid will look to start the new year on a winning note when they travel to Osasuna this weekend.

Osasuna have won only one of their last eight league games and were winless in December. Their last game, against Athletic Bilbao, ended in defeat for Los Rojillos. Bilbao scored twice in the first twelve minutes of the game, and Osasuna failed to recover from that early double blow. Jose Antonio Camacho’s side are only three points above the relegation zone at this stage of the season.

Real, as mentioned before, crushed Zaragoza 6-0. Argentine striker Gonzalo Higuain was again on the score sheet, with two to his name. Dutch playmaker Rafael van der Vaart also scored a brace, while summer signings Cristiano Ronaldo and Karim Benzema netted in the second half. It was Real’s biggest win of the season and a fitting birthday present for Benzema. Brazilian superstar Kaka could make his return from injury this weekend.

Liverpool Vs Chelsea Premier League Live Odds & Picks

Liverpool Vs Chelsea Live Odds & Picks @ Sportsbook

Chelsea managed to score their first goal against Liverpool in just the 33rd minute with a blunder by Steven Gerrard, out of all people which left Drogba one-on-one with Pepe Reina and easily knocked the ball by the Liverpool goal keeper.

To be fair to Drogba, he showed a predators instinct and new Gerrard was going to pass back, a characteristic that all great strikers have, which has been the pivotal reason behind Chelsea’s 95 goals scored in the league this season.

Chelsea scored their second of the game on the 54th minute when Frank Lampard netted the ball from a Nicolas Anelka cross which seemingly ended any chance by the reds.

Early Surprises in 2010 MLB Season


A month into the new baseball season and we have a few surprises developing.

In the Big Apple, the New York Yankees are challenging for the American League East lead…that doesn’t fall into the “Surprising” category…but across town, the New York Mets are fighting the Philadelphia Phillies for the National League East division, which is. Yes, it’s still early, but they have had a decent start to the season.

Online sportsbooks currently have the Metropolitans at +400 to win the NL East division.

The Mets, who have played second fiddle to the Yankees since the glory days of Hernandez, Dykstra, et al, were sitting in fourth place in the NL East at this time last year, with a 10-13 record and plenty of doom and gloom surrounding the team.  As of this past Sunday, they are 14-11 and a half game behind Philadelphia.

They start a series with the Reds in Cincinnati to kick-off the week.

Bettors have been cashing in on the Mets in their last 10 games, as they’ve booked an impressive 8-2 mark. However, they have struggled on the road, going 3-9 in their last 12 away from home.

John Maine is slated for the Tuesday night start. Bettors take note, as his last 11 road starts have not produced many winning tickets. He (and the team) have stumbled to a 2-9 mark in those games.

You can check the updated odds for this game on Monday night – Baseball Odds

San Diego Padres: The San Diego Padres are a bit of surprise team as well, currently leading the NL West (as of Sunday, they’re 1.5 games up on the San Francisco Giants).

Despite the early division lead, the Padres are still longshots to hang on a win the NL West, listed currently at +1100 at most online sportsbooks. But the sports betting public is starting to take notice, as Brian Taylor, manager at SPORTSBETTING.com reported decent betting action on San Diego “to win the division” this past week.

The Padres will host the Colorado Rockies in their next series.

San Diego have certainly been impressive in their last 16 games overall, with a record of 13-3, and even more so in their last 10 home games, going 9-1 in front of the home town fans.

Over/Under Notes: In San Diego’s last 11 games head-to-head vs. the Colorado Rockies, the Under has been money. There have been only 2 Overs, but the Under has cashed in 9 times.

The early betting action is on the visiting Rockies for the Monday start. They are a road favorite, and 68% of the betting volume is on the visitor.

Boston Red Sox: While the Padres and Mets are off to good starts, the Boston Red Sox have struggled so far in 2010.

The BoSox are fourth in the AL East and start a series with the Los Angeles Angels, who are also struggling as well, sitting near the bottom of the AL West.

In the BoSox’s last 11 games against the Angels at Fenway, they are an ugly 3-8 SU.

Will the San Diego Padres and New York Mets maintain their respective positions in their divisions?

Will the Boston Red Sox move back to the top of the AL East?

We’ll be watching as these and more storylines unfold on the young baseball season.

Good luck with the plays today.

Lebron James Wins Second NBA MVP Award in Landslide

Lebron James was this years NBA MVP. I know that’s an easy statement to stand behind AFTER the award was handed to him, but it has truly been a fact sinc long before the season ended.

Lebron James was amazing this season. And stood alone as the natural choice for most valuable player. On all but seven ballots. Yes, amidst his amazing season, there were actually seven voters that thought Kevin Durant or Dwight Howard was the MVP. Keving Durant is a great basketball player, and may in fact move on to a handful of MVP awards in his own career, but the “greatest” of the great players this season? I dont think so. Dwight Howard, defensive player of the year, dunk champion, force in the pant? Not a chance.

Not if you saw Lebron this year. Not if you actually watched what this kid pulled off night in and night out. He was a force. It was ridiculous. nothing so dominating since “you know who” left the league the second time.

But there were still nay-sayers to his MVP conquest. I understand that there is a case to be made for many other players, but coming to the conclusion to officially cast your vote for somebody other than Lebron this year is actually saying that there is a case against James. Which there is not. Simply put, he was the best player on his team, in the league. One that his team could not do without, that other players feared playing against, and whose actual season stats are bordering on legendary status this year.

But alas, there will always be the homers, deciding to vote on who they see more often instead of who deserves it, and the only way to silence these doubters, is to bring home the first major sports championship to Cleveland in over 35 years.

MMA/Boxing Betting: Manny Pacquiao-Floyd Mayweather Not Pipe Dream?

Boxing Betting: Floyd Mayweather Jr. defeated Shane Mosley over the weekend by unanimous decision and he was asked by Larry Merchant about a possible fight with Manny Pacquiao.

“Money May” responded by saying that if Pacquiao would agree to his drug testing demands, the fight would be on, but will it really?

The two seemed destined to fight last December but the aforementioned testing seemed to be a sticking point. Pacquiao’s camp reportedly agreed to provide as many urine samples as requested but balked at the seemingly excessive blood test requests prior to the proposed fight.

ESPN earlier reported that Pacquiao would compromise when it come to blood testing but the report was denied by members of Pacquiao’s management.

“I am willing to help the sport for the future of the sport. I do not want to see anyone cheat or cheat this sport. For that reason I am willing to consider taking blood [tests] as close as 14 days prior to the fight, as long as my opponent does the same, and it is not a lot of blood, just enough to test,” Pacquiao is allegedly quoted as saying.

Yahoo! Sports says promoter Bob Arum denies that Pacquiao has softened his blood testing stance.

Still, a fight featuring the two would be a big draw.

If Floyd Mayweather Jr. fights Manny Pacquiao before Dec. 31, 2010, they would be listed at -175 and +110 respectively.

NBA Betting: Utah Jazz vs Los Angeles Lakers Game 2 Live Odds

Down 1-0 in their NBA playoff conference semifinal vs. the Los Angeles Lakers, the Utah Jazz could get an injection with the return of forward Andrei Kirilenko.

The Jazz are 6-point road ‘dogs for Game 2 and the Total is set at 199.

Kirilenko first suffered a left calf injury on Mar. 12 and re-aggravated it in mid-April — he was able to take part in his first full practice on Monday according to the Associated Press.

The Jazz are already missing center Mehmet Okur.

The last 14 games at the STAPLES Center have been a struggle for the Jazz, as they are 0-14 straight up and 4-10 against the spread — there have been 10 Overs and 4 Unders at the same time.

In “Exact Series Results” betting, the Jazz are listed at +5000 to comeback and win their Western Conference semifinal 4 games to 1.
