Real Madrid Vs Juventus UEFA Champions League Final Odds & Pick

What: UEFA Championship Final Odds
Who: Juventus vs. Real Madrid
When: Saturday, June 3 at 1:45 PM
Where: Cardiff, Wales, UK
TV: ESPN
Odds:
Real Madrid +140, Juventus +187, Draw +240

Why Bet on Juventus Odds at +187

The best reason to bet on Juventus is that they are the only team that managed to go unbeaten in the UEFA tournament. Juventus will also have some extra motivation from a historical aspect as they can also bag a sixth consecutive Serie A title this weekend and have already secured a place in the Coppa Italia final, giving the team an opportunity to pull off the rare treble, should it win both finals. The only Italian team to pull off the treble so far has been Jose Mourinho’s Inter Milan squad back 2010, so Juventus also has a trio of defensive superstars in Andrea Barzagli, Leonardo Bonucci and Giorgio Chiellini that can potentially subdue Real Madrid’s Cristiano Ronaldo and Madrid’s offensive-minded BBC line.

Why Bet on Real Madrid Odds at +140

Real Madrid is also looking to make some history after becoming the first reigning UCL champs to reach final since Manchester United did so back in 2009. The last repeat European Cup winner was AC Milan in 1990. Real Madrid is the fifth team to reach three different UCL finals in a four-year span. Another great reason to back Real Madrid is that they have an offensive-minded trio that can bury most teams in Gareth Bale, Karim Benzema and worldwide superstar Cristiano Ronaldo.

Real Madrid Vs Juventus Final Analysis

Real Madrid is the favorite to win this battle and will be many football fans’ favorites as June 3 approaches, but Juventus have the talent and depth to shock the world and upset Real in the showpiece final in Wales.

MLB Top Games May 29 – June 4

It is Memorial Day and its time to take a closer look at America’s favorite pastime. Baseball.

With the Houston Astros and Los Angeles Dodgers streaking and the Baltimore Orioles and Chicago Cubs both struggling, let’s find out which nationally-televised matchups have the look of must-see TV pairings.

All stats are current as of May 29th, 2017.

Baseball’s Top Games May 29 – June 4

Washington Nationals (30-19) at San Francisco Giants (22-30)
Tuesday, May 30 at 10:15 PM ET
TV: ESPN

The Nats have won five of their last seven games and are up a convincing 8.5 games on Atlanta and New York in the NL East. The Giants have won two straight after losing their previous four games and are 5-5 over their last 10 games as they look to rebound from a horrific start this season.

Houston Astros (35-16) at Minnesota Twins (26-20)
Wednesday, May 31 at 1:10 PM ET
TV: MLBN

Not only is gifted youngster Carlos Correa absolutely on fire at the plate right now, but Houston has won four straight to move a whopping 10 games ahead of second place L.A. in the AL West by ranking ninth in scoring (4.94 rpg) and a stupendous second in team ERA (3.41). The Twins have dropped two of their last three, but are a robust 7-3 over their last 10 games and have already spent more days in first place this season than they did from 2011 to ’16 combined!

Boston Red Sox (27-22) at Baltimore Orioles (25-23)
Thursday, June 1 at 7:05 PM ET
TV: MLBN

The Red Sox were on the wrong end of a 5-9 shutout loss to Seattle on Sunday night, but they won their previous six games while scoring at least six runs five times and at least nine runs in three of those contests. The O’s are mired in the midst of a season-long seven-game losing streak and have gone 3-13 since they were a robust 22-10 on May 9.

New York Yankees (29-18) at Toronto Blue Jays (23-27)
Friday, June 2 at 7:07 PM ET
TV: MLBN

The Yankees have won two straight and five of seven but Toronto has been red-hot in winning five of their last six games despite falling on Sunday night. New York has scored three runs or less in six of their last 10 games. Since May 18, the Yankees are averaging just 3.5 runs per game while Toronto’s bat-flipping Jose Bautista has heated up with eight home runs in May after hitting only one in April.

Houston Astros (35-16) at Texas Rangers (25-26)
Saturday, June 3 at 7:15 PM ET
TV: FOX

Since you already know that Houston is playing fantastic baseball, then you should know that Texas is struggling mightily despite winning on Sunday night. The Rangers dropped their previous five games and six of seven overall. Texas is an awful 5-14 against teams that are .500 or better .

St. Louis Cardinals at Chicago Cubs
Sunday, June 4 at 7:35 PM ET
TV: ESPN

The Cardinals have clearly lost their way the last couple of weeks, by dropping three of their last four and seven of their last 10 games overall. St. Louis has allowed at least seven runs in each of their last three losses heading into Monday night. Nevertheless, the Cardinals should have some hope seeing how the Chicago Cubs have dropped three straight and five of their last nine games overall.

A Closer Look at the Nashville Predators Vs Pittsburgh Penguins Stanley Cup Odds

Pittsburgh is favored to win their second straight Stanley Cup. The Penguins are -152 favorites. Nashville is offering odds of +125 to win 4 games in the Stanley Cup 7-Game Series.

Stream: NBC Sports Live
Listen: Nashville vs Pittsburgh

The Nashville Predators swept Chicago in Round 1 of the NHL Playoffs. That set the tone for the Preds who ended up going 12-4 on the moneyline during the Western Conference Playoffs. The Pittsburgh Penguins went 12-7 on the moneyline during the Eastern Conference Playoffs. The Pens beat the Columbus Blue Jackets 4 to 1 in their Round 1 Series to set the tone.

Bet on the Nashville Predators +125 because…

Nashville should be well-rested. No team in NHL can win games by playing only their first line. It’s impossible. Hockey is such a physically demanding sport that managing lines is the only way beat your opponent.

Nashville coach Peter Laviollette should have a fresh team going into the Stanley Cup Series. He’ll have more flexibility with his line management than Mike Sullivan, Pittsburgh’s head coach, will have.

Bet on the Pittsburgh Penguins -152 because…

Pittsburgh has faced the much better teams during the NHL Playoffs than what Nashville faced. Pittsburgh battled Columbus, Washington, and Ottawa. Columbus was no joke this season. The Blue Jackets were 50-24-6-2.

Washington beat Pittsburgh for the Metropolitan Division. The Capitals had a 51-19-3-5 record. Washington was a big favorite to win the NHL Eastern Conference. Ottawa finished second to Montreal in the Atlantic Division. The Senators had beaten Pitt 4 to 1 and 2 to 1 in their last 2 regular season matchups.

The Penguins are battle tested while it’s difficult to say that Nashville is.

Betting The Golden State Warriors At -275

Golden State was an Andre Igoudala blocked shot away from winning Game 7 in last season’s NBA Finals. If LeBron hadn’t blocked Igoudala’s shot, Golden State might have won the game.

The biggest issue the Warriors had in the NBA Finals last season was a lack of inside presence. Golden State has a legitimate big in Zaza Pachulia. They also signed Kevin Durant who is as electric of a scorer as any player in the NBA. Durant, along with Steph Curry, make up the best one-two punch in the league.

Betting The Cleveland Cavaliers At +235

LeBron James might be the best basketball player to ever step onto a basketball court. He doesn’t get the press that Michael Jordan got. He doesn’t even get the attention that Magic Johnson and Larry Bird got. But, he can do things that all three of those hall of fame players couldn’t do.

LeBron willed the Cavaliers to a 7-game series NBA Finals win over the Warriors in 2016. When LeBron is on, no player, not even Steph and KD, can deal with him. He’s that good.

NBA Playoffs + Indy 500

The Cavs are 1 win from facing their Western Conference counterpart Warriors for a third straight NBA Championship Finals. Standing in Believeland’s quest for back-to-back titles are the fiesty but shorthanded Boston Celtics.

2017 French Open Men’s Odds

Can Djokovic Halt Nadal’s Clay Court Dominance at Roland Garros?

With the 2017 French Open set to get underway on Sunday May 28, all eyes in the tennis world will be on World No. 4 Rafael Nadal as the fiery Spaniard  seeks to bag his record 10th title at Roland Garros.

With ‘The King of Clay’ winning a pair of Masters 1000 titles in Monte Carlo and Madrid for the first time since 2010, Rafa is the clear-cut favorite heading into the French and rightfully. However, he’ll have some challengers, most likely in the forms of World No. 1 Andy Murray, World No. 2 Novak Djokovic, World No. 3 Stan Wawrinka and Italian Open winner and World No. 10 Alexander Zverev. 2017 Australian Open winner and World No. 5 Roger Federer will not compete as he focuses on the upcoming grass court season.

2017 French Open Men’s Odds

  • Rafael Nadal: -135
  • Novak Djokovic: +450
  • Andy Murray: +700
  • Stan Wawrinka: +1000
  • Dominic Thiem: +1200
  • Kei Nishikori: +3300
  • Nick Kyrgios: +3300
  • Grigor Dimitrov: +4000
  • David Goffin: +5000
  • Milos Raonic: +5000
  • Juan Martin Del Potro: +5000
  • Alexander Zverev: +5000
  • Gael Monfils: +6600
  • Tomas Berdych: +8000
  • Jo-Wilfried Tsonga: +8000
  • Lucas Pouille: +10000

  • Gilles Simon: +20000
  • Benoit Paire: +20000
  • Kevin Anderson: +25000
  • Feliciano Lopez: +25000

The Favorite To Win The 2017 ATP French Open

Nadal has won a record, nine French Open titles, but hasn’t hoisted the trophy at Roland Garros in each of the past two years, which will give him the motivation he needs. Still, Nadal has gone a blistering 36-6 on the year and is playing the best tennis we’ve seen in at least three years after winning two huge Masters’ 1000 events and taking the title in Barcelona, not to mention reaching the finals of the Australian Open. Nadal is a near-perfect 17-1 on clay courts this year and that alone should tell you he’s going to be very difficult for anyone to beat.

The Sharp Pick To Win The 2017 ATP French Open

World No. 2 Novak Djokovic is a modest 20-6 on the year  with one title at Doha, but he did just reach the finals of the Italian Open before losing to World No. 10 Alexander Zverev in the finals after playing two matches on Saturday.

After the loss, Djokovic announced that former ATP superstar Andre Agassi will coach him at the French Open when it gets underway on Sunday.

"We are both excited to work together and see where it takes us," Djokovic said. "We don’t have any long-term commitment. It’s just us trying to get to know each other in Paris a little bit."

The former World No. 1 is just 8-3 on clay this year and just 1-1 in grand slam matches after falling in the second round in Australia.

The Longshot To Win The 2017 ATP French Open

Alexander Zverev may be a +5000 longshot kind of pick, but I believe he’s anything but a long shot seeing as how he can really beat any player in the world today. The 20-year-old German took another huge step by toward becoming elite by beating Djokovic 6-4, 6-3 this past Sunday to win the Italian Open.

With the win, Zverev became the youngest player to win a Masters 1000 event since Djokovic did so a decade ago in Miami at the tender age of 19. Zverev is 27-9 on the year with three titles and has gone 16-3 on clay. The blossoming 6-6 star has it all from great footwork to fluid, power-producing groundstrokes and a consistent serve.

French Open WTA Tennis Odds & Picks

With World No. 1 Serena Williams out of the field because of her widely publicized pregnancy and former winner Maria Sharapova also out because of the refusal of Roland Garros officials to issue her a wild card following her PED-related suspension, it looks like the 2017 French Open is completely up for grabs.

However, thanks to the expert betting analysis that you’re about to get, you’re going to have a great idea of just which WTA performers have the best chance of hoisting the hardware at this year’s second grand slam event.

First, let’s get started with a look at the complete odds to win the 2017 French Open.

2017 French Open Women’s Odds & Picks

  • Simona Halep +400
  • Garbine Muguruza +800
  • Angelique Kerber +900
  • Elina Svitolina +1400
  • Svetlana Kuznetsova +1400
  • Karolina Pliskova +1600
  • Kristina Mladenovic +1600
  • Johanna Konta +2200
  • Caroline Wozniacki +2500
  • Laura Siegemund +2500
  • Daria Kasatkina +2800
  • Petra Kvitova +3300
  • Madison Keys +3300
  • Lucie Safarova +3300

  • Eugenie Bouchard +3300
  • Timea Bacsinszky +4000
  • Belinda Bencic +4000
  • Carla Suarez Navarro +4000
  • Coco Vandeweghe +5000
  • Dominika Cibulkova +5000
  • Venus Williams +6600
  • Ekaterina Makarova +6600
  • Sam Stosur +6600
  • Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova +6600
  • Sloane Stephens +8000
  • Caroline Garcia +8000
  • Jelena Ostapenko +8000

The Favorite To Win The French Open: Simona Halep +400

Simona Halep has gone 18-6 on the year with one title in Madrid while finishing as the runner-up in Rome this past weekend. Halep has plenty of firepower, grit and skill and is one of the handful of players I believe is going to win a grand slam at some point in the near future after some close calls already.  Halep is 11-1 on clay in her last two tournaments and an impressive 14-2 in her last three clay court tourneys, which tells me she’s going to be tough to take out, if anyone does.

The Smart French Open Pick: Elina Svitolina +1400

World No. 6 Elina Svitolina won her fourth title of the year by bagging the title in Rome this past weekend while moving into first place in the race for a berth in the WTA Finals in Singapore. Svitolina has gone a stellar 31-6 this season and has also won at Taipei, Dubai and Istanbul. The 22-year-old Ukrainian beat back the well-respected Alize Cornet, Mona Barthel, Karolina Pliskova, Carbine Murguruza and Halep en route to the title in Rome and could very well win the first grand slam title of her career.

The Sharp French Open Pick: Venus Williams +6600

I was going to go with the fiery Eugine Bouchard as my longshot pick to win the French simply because I love the way she talks and plays with no forgiveness. Still, at +6600, I love the return that Venus Williams is offering should she manage to find her way into the winner’s circle at this year’s French Open. Williams is 17-6 on the season and dialed back the hands of time to reach the finals of the Aussie Open opposite sister Serena. This year, Williams reached the quarterfinals in Rome and the semis in Miami. Williams, who was diagnosed with Sj”gren’s Syndrome in 2011, has been playing at a very high level this year and could make a run for the championship at Roland Garros, particularly if she gets a couple of ‘easy’ early matches.

MLB Top Games May 22-28

MLB Top Games May 22-28

Can the Chicago Cubs pick up the pace to move past the surprising Milwaukee Brewers and St. Louis Cardinals in the face for first place in the suddenly competitive NL Central?

Will the AL West-leading Houston Astros get back on track after a weekend stumble?

Last but not least, can both, the Baltimore Orioles and Los Angeles Dodgers pull off winning weeks as they seek to overtake their respective division leaders in the AL East and NL West respectively?

With a brand new week on tap, let’s take a look at the most intriguing nationally-televised MLB matchups this coming week.

MLB Must Watch & Must Bet Games May 22-28

San Francisco Giants (19-26) at Chicago Cubs (22-20)
Monday, May 22 8:05 pm 
TV: MLBN

Analysis: The Giants are reeling and come into their series opener against the Cubs having lost seven of 10. Chicago has won four of five and is looking to pick up the pace in the NL Central as the reigning World Series champs are currently two games behind Milwaukee and 1.5 games in back of St. Louis.

Detroit Tigers (21-21) at Houston Astros (29-15)
Monday, May 22 8:10 pm
TV: MLBN

Analysis: The Tigers dropped two of three against red-hot Texas over the weekend, but is just two games behind Minnesota and Cleveland in the tight AL Central. Houston has been fantastic this season in taking a 5.5-game lead in the AL West, but the ‘Stros were on the wrong end of a three-game sweep at the hands of Cleveland over the weekend. Still, Houston is ranked an impressive ninth in scoring (5.0 rpg) and even more eye-opening second in team ERA (3.52).

St. Louis Cardinals (25-19) at Los Angeles Dodgers (26-19)
Tuesday, May 23 at 10:10 pm
TV: ESPN

Analysis: The Cardinals beat Frisco 8-3 on Sunday to snap a four-game skid while the Dodgers won three of four against Miami and four of their last five overall. L.A. is ranked an impressive sixth in scoring (5.0 rpg) and stupendous first in team ERA (3.41). The Cardinals have been rock-solid in ranking third in team ERA (3.57), but St. Louis’ offense has been mediocre at best in pitching with a team ERA of 4.5 runs per game (19th). The Cards are 1.5 games behind Milwaukee in the NL Central while L.A. is in third in the NL West, two games behind both, Colorado and Arizona.

Texas Rangers (24-21) at Boston Red Sox (22-21)
Wednesday, May 24 at 7:10 PM ET
TV: MLBN

Analysis: The Rangers are on fire, having won nine of their last 10 games while sweeping Oakland and Philadelphia and taking two of three from Detroit over the weekend. Conversely, Boston clearly hasn’t found their stride just yet despite pounding Oakland 12-3 on Sunday. That win snapped a three-game losing streak and helped the BoSox to improve to a modest 5-5 over their last 10. Texas is ranked a surprising seventh in runs allowed this season (3.9) and Boston has struggled to put runs on the board by ranking just 18th in scoring (4.5 rpg).

Chicago Cubs at Los Angeles Dodgers
Friday, May 26 at 10:10 PM ET
TV: MLBN

Analysis: The Cubbies are ranked fourth in scoring (5.0 rpg) and 10th in team ERA (3.94), but the Dodgers are ranked sixth and first in the same categories. Dodgers’ staff ace left Clayton Kershaw is off to a fine start (7-2, 2.15 ERA), but Chicago’s Kris Bryant (.303, 10 HR) is starting to heat up in a big way after a modest start.

Saturday, May 27 at 7:15 PM ET
Baltimore Orioles at Houston Astros
TV: FOX

Analysis: Baltimore took two of three against Toronto over the weekend after dropping six of their previous seven games. The O’s are a half-game behind the Yankees in the competitive AL East despite ranking in the middle or bottom third in almost every statistical category except home runs where they rank eighth with an impressive 61. Despite betting just .248 and .221 respectively, Baltimore’s Chris Davis and Manny Machado have smacked nine and 10 home runs respectively.

Don't Overlook Preakness Newcomers

Don’t Overlook Preakness Newcomers

Although newcomers to the Preakness Stakes don’t often win, they do often add value to exotic bets.

2017 Preakness Stakes Morning Line Odds

PP Horse Morning Line Odds
1 Multiplier 30-1
2 Cloud Computing 12-1
3 Hence 20-1
4 Always Dreaming 4-5
5 Classic Empire 3-1
6 Gunnevera 15-1
7 Term of Art 30-1
8 Senior Investment 30-1
9 Lookin at Lee 10-1
10 Conquest Mo Money 15-1

Last year, Cherry Wine finished second in the Preakness Stakes at 17 to 1 odds. The $2 exacta with Exaggerator on top paid $88.40. The $2 trifecta with Derby winner Nyquist on the bottom paid $146.20.

It makes sense to consider one of the newcomers for the place position on your exotic bet tickets. With that in mind, here’s information on each one of the newcomers to the Triple Crown. They’re added in post-position order.

Should You Bet On Preakness Newcomers in 2017

What: 2017 Preakness Stakes
When: May 20, 2017
Post Time: 6:45 PM ET
Where: Baltimore, Maryland
Track: Pimlico Race Course
Watch: NBC
Stream: NBC Sports Live

1-Multiplier

His Illinois Derby win wasn’t overly impressive. In the Preakness, breaking from post-position one could be to his advantage. Jockey Joel Rosario can rush him into a ground-saving position right behind the front-runners. If the pace is too swift upfront, Multiplier should be the horse to pick up the pieces a la Cherry Wine in last year’s Preakness. He’ll have saved the most ground of any horses as they turn for home.

2-Cloud Computing

His owners decided to send Practical Joke to the Kentucky Derby. Practical Joke finished fifth. Cloud Computing had no chance of catching Battalion Runner and Irish War Cry over the Aqueduct dirt in the Wood Memorial. The track favored frontrunners. He’s the most talented of the newcomers. He’s also trained by Eclipse Award-winning horseman Chad Brown.

The real reason to like Cloud Computing? Jockey Javier Castellano, who has won the Eclipse for Outstanding Jockey four years in a row, takes the call. Javier’s going to have Cloud Computing much closer to the pace in the Preakness than he was in the Wood Memorial.

7-Term of Art

On paper, Term of Art doesn’t appear to have a lot going for him. He has a record of 2 wins, 1 second-place, and 2 third-place finishes from 9 starts. But, he’s sired by Tiznow and is from a Storm Cat mare. Not only that, he was purchased for $220,000. That’s a nice chunk of change. Plus, he gets blinkers back on, a 17% winning move for Derby and Preakness-winning trainer Doug O’Neill.

I say put him in the exacta. If he pops up at 50 to 1 odds and splits Always Dreaming and Classic Empire, you’re going to kick yourself if you don’t.

8-Senior Investment

I’d be very surprised if Senior Investment gets into the Top 3. Since his dad is Discreetly Mine and his mom is Plaid, he’s not in any way, shape, or form, bred to run 1 3/16 miles. I’d love to see Kenny McPeek put Senior Investment into a 7 or even 6-furlong race. He’s got that sprinting closer look about him.

He’s going to have to run much faster in the early part of the Preakness than he’s used to running. What it means is that his closing kick might be compromised. He’s the one horse out of the newcomers that I just don’t feel can get into the exacta. He’s not a bad horse. I just don’t think the race conditions suit him.

10-Conquest Mo Money

Do not leave this son of Uncle Mo off your exacta ticket. If Always Dreaming and Classic Empire only pay attention to each other, Conquest Mo Money can wire this field. He ran a :45.3 half in the 1 1/8 miles Sunland Derby and finished second to Hence. He ran a :46.4 half-mile in the Arkansas Derby and finished second to Classic Empire. He also held off Looking At Lee in the Arkansas Derby. Lookin At Lee finished second in the Kentucky Derby.

What’s going to happen if nobody wants to get into a speed duel with Jorge Carreno aboard Conquest Mo Money on Saturday? He’s going to get away with a :48 half. If he does, it will be all over but the shouting.

I can’t stress it enough. Don’t leave Conquest Mo Money off your exacta tickets.

Kentucky Derby winner Always Dreaming (4-5) and Classic Empire (3-1) are the top two runners to beat and will run from the 4th and 5th positions respectively. But behold a shorter track comprising tighter turns at Pimlico will disappoint anyone foolish enough to use their Derby tactics where Always Dreaming won by 2 1/2 lengths.

The Preakness Stakes will be refined to just 10 starters, a far cry from the 20-horse field that took part in the Run for the Roses earlier this month. At a distance of 1 3/16 miles, the Preakness is shorter than the Kentucky Derby. Combine that with a smaller field set to take part, this is anyone’s race
