NHL Hockey Betting: 2015-16 Season Underway

NHL Hockey Betting: 2015-16 Season UnderwayThe NHL Season is officially underway after four games were played last Wednesday. That opening four-game Wednesday slate saw home teams go 0-4 while favorites went 1-3, but since that time the chalk has dominated.

We compiled our stats from Wednesday through Sunday, and while hockey is notorious for home ice advantage not accounting for much, we were surprised to see home teams had a losing overall record through the first week of the season.

Out of 31 games played in total Wednesday through Sunday, home teams went a combined 14-17 straight up. Favorites did very well for NHL bettors, as they finished the week with a winning 22-9 record, including a 21-6 mark after opening day.

College Football Betting – Week 6 Marquee Matchups

College Football Betting – Week 6 Marquee MatchupsThere are only two matchups this weekend featuring two teams ranked in the Top 25 – one in the Big Ten and the other out West in the Pac 12. Last weekend saw a number of key big upsets with four Top Ten teams all losing outright. Those results have shook up the rankings, as well as the public perception of many high profile teams.

The first such matchup by the online sportsbook has unbeaten Northwestern taking on 4-1 Michigan at the Big House. The Wildcats have climbed to #13 in the rankings, and Big Ten powers Ohio State and Michigan State not on their schedule this year, this sets up as one of the biggest games of the season for Northwestern.

Wildcats crushed Minnesota 27-0 last week as a small 3-point home favorite. Most preferred sportsbooks still don’t give NW credit, however, as Michigan is a huge 8-point home favorite. That line would suggest Michigan would be favored even if this game took place at Northwestern. The Wolverines also had a great game last week, beating Maryland 28-0 for their second straight shutout.

MLB Betting Tips – Playoff Contenders Final Week

MLB Betting Tips – Playoff Contenders Final Week We are down to the final week of the MLB Baseball betting season, and while all five teams in the National League have already clinched their playoff berth, there is still much to be decided in the American League. The Royals and Blue Jays have already clinched their divisions, and the Yankees have virtually knotted up their top Wild Card spot.

But the AL West Division is still up for grabs, and the Rangers, Angels, and Astros are all battling for the two remaining postseason slots.

Technically, Minnesota and Cleveland are still alive for the AL Wild Card hunt, but even if either one of those teams won the rest of their games, they would still need a ton of help to earn that final spot.

Baseball Betting Tips – Wild, Wild (AL) West

Baseball Betting Tips – Wild, Wild (AL) West At the end of July, the Houston Astros took over first place in the AL West Division. About a week earlier, they just acquired starting pitcher Scott Kazmir from the Oakland Athletics in one of the bigger trade-deadline deals. Things were looking up for a team that finished 22 games under .500 a season ago.

The Astros maintained that lead in the AL West all the way until this past Tuesday, when a walk-off sacrifice fly by Mitch Moreland gave Texas a 6-5 victory over the visiting Astros and gave the Rangers a half-game lead in the division.

Houston has lost nine of their last 13 games overall heading into Wednesday night, with six of those defeats coming as favorite. Blindly backing the Astros in that span would have an MLB bettor down 8.2 units.

NFL Betting Tips: What We Saw Week 1

NFL Betting Tips: What We Saw Week 1 There were a few surprises in the opening weekend of NFL action, but the real headline was the number of injuries to star players. Among the notable injuries were wide receivers TY Hilton, DeSean Jackson, and Dez Bryant, quarterbacks Josh McCown and Derek Carr, and running backs Andre Ellington and Reggie Bush.

We’ll have to wait and see how those injuries affect the play on the field, but overall there were a few notable performances from a team perspective that caught our eye.

The Brady-to-Gronk connection looks to be one of the league’s best, as that combination accounted for three touchdowns in their seven-point win (as a seven-point favorite) against Pittsburgh on Thursday night.

Tennis Betting: US Open Update

Tennis Betting: US Open Update We are three rounds in to the US Open (two round completed on the women’s side), and while most of the major contenders are still around, there have been quite a few upsets in both the men’s singles and women’s singles brackets. Top-seeded Novak Djokovic and Serena Williams have advanced with little trouble, but some of their top competition have already fallen.

Three of the top 16 seeded players on the men’s side couldn’t advance past the first round. The major upset in this bracket saw fourth-seeded Kei Nishikori fall in five sets against Benoit Paire.

Third-seeded Andy Murray was nearly a victim of the upset bug, falling behind two sets against Adrian Mannarino before rallying to win the final three sets to advance.

MLB Betting: Toronto Blue Jays Leap over NY Yankees It’s been a long road to the top, but the Toronto Blue Jays have finally surpassed the New York Yankees for the lead in the AL East Division, owning a 1.5-game lead over the Bronx Bombers heading into Friday’s action.

Toronto has been on an absolute tear going 18-4 in their last 22 games overall – a winning streak that coincided with bringing in ace pitcher David Price.

Now that the Blue Jays have the division lead, don’t expect them to be complacent – this is a team we will be looking to back throughout the next month and a half.

Offensive production was never a problem for the Blue Jays – they lead the majors in runs scored by a whopping 100-run margin and their overall run differential is +170 (42 runs better than second-best St. Louis).
