BetAnySports Weekend Betting Preview - May 19-21
By Dave Schwab
Both Cleveland in the East and Golden State in the West have posted some big wins early in their best-of-seven conference finals series to take that first step towards setting up the rubber match in this season’s NBA Finals after each team won a world title against the other over the past two years. Over in the NHL Conference Finals, it is starting to look like an unlikely matchup between Ottawa and Nashville in the 2017 Stanley Cup Finals given the current results in both of those best-of-seven series.
If you are looking to bet on some baseball this weekend at BetAnySports, one of the featured MLB series pits the Texas Rangers on the road against the Detroit Tigers for three games starting this Friday night. Game 3 of this AL clash will be broadcast nationally in an 8 p.m. (ET) start on ESPN’s Sunday Night Baseball. The PGA Tour is in Texas this weekend for the AT&T Byron Nelson Open and both the ATP and WTA professional tennis tour is in Rome for the Internazionali BNL d’Italia. NASCAR betting fans can look forward to Saturday night’s Cup Series All-Star Race to kick off two weekends of racing action at Charlotte Motor Speedway.
The Cavaliers opened their conference finals series against the top-seeded Boston Celtics with a convincing 117-104 victory in Wednesday’s Game 1 as four-point road favorites on BetAnySports’ closing line. They are now a perfect 9-0 straight-up in the postseason with a 5-2-2 record against the spread. The total went OVER the closing 218.5-point line in that game and it has gone OVER in seven of those nine games.
Game 2 is set for Friday night in an 8:30 p.m. start on TNT and Cleveland has been opened as a 5.5-point road favorite with the total set at 219.5. The series shifts to Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland this Sunday with Game 3 set to get underway at 8:30 p.m. on TNT.
Golden State will try and take a commanding 3-0 series lead against the San Antonio Spurs this Saturday night as a six-point road favorite. The total line for this 9 p.m. tip on ESPN has been set at 212 points. The Warriors’ current SU winning streak in these playoffs stands at 10 games with a 6-4 record ATS. They beat the Spurs by two points in Game 1 as 10-point road favorites before posting a 36-point victory this past Tuesday as 13.5-point favorites on the road to take the 2-0 series lead.
The Toronto Raptors stunned the betting world as underdogs by beating the Golden State Warriors four times in six games to win this season’s NBA Championship. Staying ‘north of the border’ for this week’s top underdog pick, I have turned to Week 2 in the CFL regular season. The Saskatchewan Roughriders will be on the Read More…
The Reds picked up a big win over one of the best teams in baseball last night, and definitely a team that comes in near or above the top-five in most power rankings. Last night was a close game and yet another run line loss by the Astros, who happen to be 38-34 against the Read More…
Throw out the fact that the San Francisco Giants are in last place in the National League West Division. The Giants-Dodgers rivalry is one of the best in baseball.
