Betting OddsMontreal Canadiens vs Pittsburgh Penguins Live Betting Odds: The NHL match between Montreal Canadiens and Pittsburgh Penguins will kick off on May 12, 2010 at 7:00 PM ET. This match is scheduled at Mellon Arena, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

Improbable as it might seem, the Montreal Canadiens are playing a Game 7. Again.

As unlikely a Game 7 as that against the Washington Capitals a couple of weeks ago? Maybe. As unlikely a Game 7 as the Pittsburgh Penguins have played in the last 14 seasons? Maybe that, too.

Montreal Canadiens vs Pittsburgh Penguins Picks and Predictions

All the Canadiens know is this: They barely made it into the playoffs, but they've taken the reigning Stanley Cup champions to the last game, just as they did the NHL regular season champion Capitals.

The top-seeded Capitals led the eighth-seeded Canadiens 3-1 in the first round, but lost Game 7 by 2-1 as Montreal completed one of the NHL's biggest playoff series upsets in decades.

New York Yankees vs Detroit Tigers Live Match Preview and Picks


New York Yankees vs Detroit Tigers Live Odds: The MLB match between New York Yankees and Detroit Tigers will kick off on May 12, 2010 at 1:05 PM ET. This match is scheduled at Comerica Park, Detroit, Michigan.

It may be difficult for the New York Yankees to avoid their first three-game losing streak with Javier Vazquez on the mound.

The struggling Vazquez makes his first start in 11 days when the Yankees try to end the Detroit Tigers' six-game home win streak in the opener of a day-night doubleheader Wednesday afternoon.

New York (21-10) has lost back-to-back games for the third time this year after falling 5-4 in the opener of this four-game set Monday night. Tuesday's meeting was postponed due to rain.

Bouncing back behind Vazquez (1-3, 9.78 ERA) won't be easy.

Detroit (18-14) improved to 10-3 at home -- second in the AL to New York's 10-2 mark -- as rookie Brennan Boesch drove in three runs. Boesch has 10 RBIs in five home games.

Cincinnati Reds vs Pittsburgh Pirates Live: The MLB match between Cincinnati Reds and Pittsburgh Pirates will kick off on May 12, 2010 at 12:35 PM ET. This match is scheduled at PNC Park, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

Cincinnati's latest trip to Pittsburgh has gone much better than its first of 2010.

The Reds try to complete a sweep of the Pirates and match a season high with a fifth straight victory Wednesday afternoon.

After suffering a three-game sweep at Pittsburgh from April 16-18, Cincinnati (18-15) has outscored the Pirates 11-1 to win the first two of this three-game set at PNC Park.

The Reds, who have won four in a row overall and 11 of 15, swept Pittsburgh twice in 2009, once at each team's home park.

Chris Heisey collected his first three major league hits, including his first home run, while Jay Bruce also had three hits and drove in three runs for the Reds, who won a season-high five in a row from April 25-30.

The victory was also Cincinnati's 12th in its last 16 games versus Pittsburgh, which swept the Reds at home from April 16-18. Cincy will try to avenge that series this afternoon with its first sweep of the Buccos since Sept. 22-24 of last year in the Steel City.

Andy Murray vs Juan Ignacio Chela Live Odds and Preview - ATP Madrid Masters

Betting Online
Andy Murray vs Juan Ignacio Chela Live Betting Online: The ATP Madrid Masters tennis match between Andy Murray and Juan Ignacio Chela will kick off on May 12, 2010, 16:00 ET at Madrid, Spain.

In this year, Andy Murray and Juan Ignacio Chela played 5 Games up to today.
Last time A. Murray and J. Chela played a Match within the ATP Tournament
French Open Men played on Clay Court on 24/05/09.

Today, Andy Murray will play against Juan Ignacio Chela in the second round of the ATP Madrid Masters.

Murray started the year very strongly, reaching the Australian Open final, where he was defeated in straight sets by Roger Federer.
It seems as if Murray has lost motivation for many of the tournaments, and his prolonged bid to win his first slam appears to be weighing heavily on his shoulders.

Murray won the only clay-court match between these two back in 2009 at Roland Garros, and this may give him the edge. However, Murray cannot slack off against Chela.

Rafael Nadal vs Oleksandr Dolgopolov Jr Match Preview and Odds

Online Betting
Rafael Nadal vs Oleksandr Dolgopolov Jr Live Tennis Betting Odds: The ATP Madrid Masters tennis match between Rafael Nadal vs Oleksandr Dolgopolov Jr will kick off on May 12, 2010, 16:00 ET at Madrid, Spain.

The Tennis Player Oleksandr Dolgopolov Jr and Rafael Nadal played up to today no Games together.

Rafael Nadal is a real favourite to win the Mutua Madrilena Madrid Open this year, and on the basis of his current form and past glories here it’s not hard to see why. Nadal has been superb as usual this year, and is currently ranked as the world number three.

In the last weeks Nadal showed terrific form, not losing more than 6 games/match (and the only one who did it was Ferrero), while he hardly broke a sweat in Rome, despite losing a set to Gulbis. He looks confident again, and he does what he needs to do, while also taking care of his fitness, to avoid another slip-up, like last year at Roland Garros. He's a beast again, and I suppose he won't give Dolgopolov any chances to even get close, especially since he is on home ground, in Spain, and his fans will be looking forward to another brilliant performance.

Cardiff City Vs Leicester City English League Championship Semi Finals Match Preview

English League Championship Semi Finals Soccer Betting TipCardiff City vs Leicester City come today, 12 May 2010 English League Championship Semi-finals match kick-off begin at Cardiff City Stadium, 20:45 CET. Cardiff manager Dave Jones is under no illusions as to what promotion to the Barclays Premier League would mean for the club and for all of south Wales.

Peter Whittingham’s exquisite free-kick has made the Bluebirds favourites to progress to the Wembley final for a shot at promotion to the top flight – worth an estimated £90million.

That would be music to the club’s ears as they battle to clear their well-documented debt.

And, having guided Wolves to similar play-off success in 2010/03, Jones also knows what it would mean to the area as a whole.

But he is urging everyone to keep their feet on the ground and knows nothing has been achieved yet with the tie still effectively at half-time.

Winger Chris Burke is facing a race against time to be fit having come off on Sunday nursing a groin strain, while centre-back Anthony Gerrard will definitely miss out again having failed to overcome the calf injury that ruled him out of the first leg.

Leicester assistant manager Craig Shakespeare believes the pressure is off the Foxes after their first-leg defeat and Cardiff will start as favourites to finish the job on home soil.

Experienced striker Steve Howard will return to the Leicester squad after completing a three-match suspension.

The Foxes will assess the fitness of defender Wayne Brown and on-loan striker James Vaughan, who were both left out of the squad for the first leg after picking up hamstring problems in training.

ATP Madrid Masters Oleksandr Dolgopolov Jr Vs Rafael Nadal Preview

ATP Madrid Masters Tennis Betting Tips: 2010 MADRID OPEN MASTERS Tournament: Madrid Masters – Mutua Madrilena Madrid Open. Season 2010. Date: 12 May 2010 at 15:00 GMT.

Fun line up for Wednesday. The Serbs, Ana and Jelena duking it out on Court Manolo Santana. F-Lo and Roddick following, and Rafa in his first match against someone who I have never heard of. The ZooLander duo of F-lo and Nando are playing dubs again on Court 5.
tennis betting

Nadal is ranked 3rd on tour and he is the top clay courter so the only way Dolgopolov wins this match is if Nadal totally drops the bomb.

The Ukrainian player Oleksandr Dolgopolov Jr showed some signs of a good, or at least decent, clay-court season, by winning a few Challengers, but he failed every time he met a better player in a more serious tournament, showing that he lacks the class required to perform on clay at a bigger level, and fully justifying his 0-8 record on clay. This guy pretty much got spanked by Martin Klizan in Casablanca, Jan Hajek in Rome and Ventura in Munich, despite taking a set from them. Psychological factor should also have a contribution here, as it is very hard to play good knowing that Nadal is on the other side of the court, and you have no chance to win.

Oleksandr Dolgopolov young and possibly up and coming, but Nadal's form on clay will not permit an unaccomplished player to enjoy any success whatsoever.

Andy Roddick will face Feliciano Lopez in what is to be his first match on a clay court this year.

Serena Williams vs Nadia Petrova Live Odds and Preview


Serena Williams vs Nadia Petrova Live: The Tennis WTA Madrid Masters match between Serena Williams and Nadia Petrova will kick off on May 12, 2010 at 16:30 GMT.

Serena Williams and Nadia Petrova played up to today 3 Games. Last time S. Williams and N. Petrova played a Match within the WTA Tournament China Open played on Hard Court on 08/10/09.

Despite receiving a bye in round one, Serena Williams will go into this match feeling as if she’s already played twice this week. Williams was involved in the match of the tournament so far, against Vera Dushevina, in which Dushevina took Serena to three sets, all of which ended in a tie-breaker (6-7, 7-6, 7-6).

Serena Williams is sick. In a positive way it has to be said. She had a monster performance against Dushevina in her first match and won that in 3 tie-breaks. The thing about Serena is that she was injured in that matched and showed lots of guts to beat herself and opponent to record a record win. He did play doubles yesterday so you have to feel that her injury is ok. Petrova has been very poor for a very long time and on current form won’t be good enough to beat Serena unless Williams retires.

Williams has been in blistering form this season, and it took an inspired Jelena Jankovic to eliminate her from the Internazionali BNL d’Italia last week. Despite her struggle against Dushevina, Williams still has a great chance to win this tournament, and should win today.

The rest of the Preakness field rounds out with: Aikenite, Caracortado, Pleasant Prince, Yawanna Twist, Schoolyard Dreams, Northern Giant, Hurricane Ike, and First Dude. Borel rode Hurricane Ike to a win in the Derby Trial but then won the Derby with Super Saver. So he will face his old mount against jockey Robby Albarado.
