The San Francisco Giants have shut out the Los Angeles Dodgers in back-to-back wins and can complete the sweep of a three-game set against their NL West rivals this afternoon. We’ve seen just six runs scored in the first two games in the series, and runs are sure to come at a premium today when both clubs send their ace to the hill.

The Pirates were coming off a three game sweep at Milwaukee but came up short in last night’s opener of a three game set at home against the Cubs. I think the hosts are looking good to execute revenge tonight though as they send Francisco Liriano to the hill.

The Boston Celtics are travelling to Cleveland for an Eastern Conference battle against the Cavs for Game 1 in a best of seven series.

The San Antonio Spurs are visiting the Los Angeles Clippers Sunday for Game 1 of possibly the most anticipated best of 7 series in the first round of the NBA playoffs 2015. The Spurs are the #6 seed while the Clippers finished as the #3 seed in the West.

The Habs did not disappoint home at Montreal as they’re coming to Ottawa with a 2-0 lead in this Eastern Conference quarter-finals series. I’m looking for them to keep that momentum going with yet another win against the Sens tonight.
April 17th, 2015
The Mets are still undefeated at home and off five wins on the bounce overall. They’re looking good to make it six straight Ws tonight as they host a Marlins team that have won only two of its last six games.
April 14th, 2015
The Astros suffered an embarrassing 8-1 defeat in the opener of this three game set against the A’s last night. They had mighty trouble solving Scott Kazmir, but keep in mind that they’re 13-3 in their last 16 after allowing five runs or more in their previous game and tonight’s pitching match-up leans in favor of the Texans.

The D-Backs shut out the Dodgers in a 6-0 win last night but I doubt they’ll be able to do so today as they send Josh Collmenter to the mound. Collmenter was lit up by the Giants in a 5-4 loss in his first outing of the season as the right-hander surrendered five runs, four earned, on 10 hits over only 4 2/3 innings and is likely in for another rough outing here.
April 8th, 2015
The Blue Jays opened the season with a 6-1 win at Yankee Stadium two days ago, but I think they’re in for a loss tonight as they’ll take the field once again for the second game of this three game set after a day off Tuesday.
April 7th, 2015
The Giants opened their title defending season with a win at Arizona last night. Madison Bumgarner left the mound with the Giants in a 5-1 lead, but the bullpen almost screwed it up as Arizona clawed back making it a one ball game in the end falling 5-4.

The Jets are off four wins on the bounce as they’re visiting Western Conference foe the Oilers at Edmonton tonight. The hosts may be sitting near the bottom of the table, but they’ve at least got some offense going of late scoring four goals or more in five of their last seven games
March 14th, 2015
The surging Calgary Flames have scored almost at will of late as they’ve tallied 27 goals over their last six games, claiming the win in five of those. They’re off dominant back-to-back 6-3 wins against the Ducks and the Maple Leafs
March 10th, 2015
The Flyers suffered back-to-back losses over the weekend, first losing 3-2 in OT at Boston and then 5-2 at New Jersey Sunday. Tonight they’re looking to bounce back on home ice where they’ve won four of their last five games, and I think they’re looking good to keep pleasing the home crowd as they’re hosting a Stars team they have dominated over recent seasons.
March 7th, 2015
The Maple Leafs have dropped three of their last four games, with two of those being shut out losses. They’re off a 4-2 defeat at Tampa Bay two days ago and are a measly 1-9 in their last 10 playing on one day of rest.
March 5th, 2015
The Stars are on the rise again after recording their first win in seven games when they defeated the Islanders 3-2 in OT Tuesday. Kari Lehtonen was back to his old self stopping 35 shots and he shut out the Panthers in a 2-0 victory the first meeting of the season.
