Saint Louis Blues at Buffalo SabresCheck WagerWeb and find the best betting site!!!!

The St. Louis Blues and Buffalo Sabres meet Monday night at the First Niagara Center.

The young Buffalo Sabres are losing a bit of momentum after a very promising stretch and look to regain their footing with a three-game homestand that begins with Monday’s contest against the St. Louis Blues.

Buffalo had won five of six games before going winless in the last four (0-2-2) while managing only four goals during that span.Leading scorer Ryan O’Reilly has three goals in four games, but many of the other key offensive weapons have gone cold for the Sabres during their slide.

The Blues could use a boost as well after winning only two of their last six contests (2-3-1), including their seventh consecutive victory over Buffalo – 3-2 in a shootout on Thursday.

The Red Wings look to shake off an overtime loss at the Joe in their last outing as they stay put and welcome the Kings to town on Friday night.

Game notes: 

  • The Red Wings, coming off a 2-1 overtime loss to the Washington Capitals on Wednesday night,will have forward Brad Richards back for tonight’s game.

The LA Kings head into the Motor City on Friday looking to stay on top of the Pacific division and as winners of three in a row and seven of their last 10 games overall they are in a nice position to do so here against an average Wings group. The Kings look like a team ready to get back to the playoffs and make a statement once they get there and while they have lost some pieces from their last Cup roster they still have a large portion of that group intact and will be looking for a deep run in the Western Conference playoffs this season. Jonathan Quick gets the call between the pipes here as he will go up against Petr Mrazek who earned a shut out his last time between the pipes.

The Red Wings are in the mix in the Atlantic division but overall they sit with a very average 9-8-2 record and sit 10 points back of the Canadiens for top spot. Detroit is looking for Pavel Dastyuk to get going as he is the team’s offensive catalyst and if they can get some secondary support they could very well extend their ridiculous playoff streak and pull off a few upsets along the way. With Mrzaek in goal I like the Wings a bit better than I would with Howard but I really like the total as both goalies should be on their game and this one will come down to the wire.

KEY MATCHUP

DeRozan vs. Bryant

Raptors guard DeMar DeRozan grew up in Los Angeles idolizing Kobe Bryant, who’s now in his 20th season with the Lakers. Bryant isn’t the Bryant of old, but he’s sure to have a big game or two left in his body and he’s always been good against the Raptors.

  • In eight games, Bryant is shooting 23 per cent from three-point range and 34 per cent overall from the field
  • Big trip for Raptors rookie Norman Powell, honourary captain for his UCLA alma mater at a home game against Pepperdine on Thursday

Even with the game tied at 98-98 with 5:28 in the fourth quarter, the Warriors kept playing their brand of basketball and got over the hump to improve to 12-0 on the season

With the win, Los Angeles improved to 6-4 on the season and 5-1 at home. In injury news, coach Rivers said Wednesday that neither Paul (groin) nor JJ Redick (back) are likely to suit up tonight.

Atlanta Hawks vs Brooklyn Nets

Atlanta Hawks vs Brooklyn NetsCheck WagerWeb and find the best betting site!!!!

The Southeast Division meets the Atlantic Division in this clash as the Atlanta Hawks travel to the Barclays Center to face the Brooklyn Nets in the National Basketball Association.

To be played on November 17, 2015, the match is on 7:30 PM ET.

Thee Atlanta Hawks are going to be minus a couple of key players for Tuesday’s clash in Brooklyn with the Nets. After suffering an injury against the Utah JazzKent Bazemore joins Jeff Teague on a list of injured Hawks.

From College Football, Casino Betting, Racebook Gambling, WagerWeb offers you the online gambling option.

The Hawks announced Bazemore’s status Monday afternoon, ruling him out of Tuesday’s contest:

Atlanta Hawks guard/forward Kent Bazemore suffered a right ankle injury in last night’s game against the Utah Jazz. X-rays performed at Philips Arena last night were negative. A follow-up MRI and examination this afternoon at the Peachtree Orthopaedic Clinic confirmed a right ankle sprain. Bazemore will be listed as out (NWT) for tomorrow’s game at Brooklyn and his status will be updated as appropriate.

With Jeff Teague out, a game that might have otherwise been an easy win for the Hawks is now much more of a challenge.

The Hawks started the season as the hottest team in the Eastern Conference, but since winning seven straight they’ve lost three of their last four and their last two overall. Paul Millsap scored a game-high 28 points while Kent Bazemore and Al Horford chipped in with 16 points each but the Hawks missed on the game-winner when Millsap’s last-second 3-pointer hit the rim, dropping the Hawks to 8-4 on the season. Dennis Schroder scored 11 points and nine assists in a rare start as Jeff Teague sat out with a sore left ankle.

New York Islanders vs Arizona Coyotes

New York Islanders vs Arizona CoyotesCheck WagerWeb and find the best betting site!!!!

The Islanders look for their sixth win on home ice on Monday night as they welcome the Arizona Coyotes to the Barclay’s Center.

The Arizona Coyotes are hoping to spoil the party in Brooklyn on Monday night as the league’s overachievers head into New York to battle the Islanders as they search for their tenth victory of the season. The Coyotes are coming off a loss but still sit in second place in the pacific division thanks to a lackluster start from the majority of its inhabitants and with a win on Monday the desert dogs can move to within a single point of the Kings for top spot. Arizona will likely go with Mike Smith here as the Isles will counter with Jaroslav Halak in a game that currently has the home side as a pretty heavy favourite.

The Islanders meanwhile come into Monday’s action sitting in fourth place in the Atlantic division and will be looking to climb the ladder with a statement win at home. New York is coming off a win but a 4-4-2 stretch in their last 10 contests has them nine points back of the Rangers for top spot in the Metro and currently on the outside of a playoff spot, though there is still a ton of hockey left to be played. New York is in the top half in terms of goals scored this season and if they can ramp it up and get continued production out of Halak I think the Isles will turn their fortunes around and get back into contention for the division title and that starts tonight with a home ice win against the Coyotes.

Dallas Mavericks vs Philadelphia 76ers

Dallas Mavericks vs Philadelphia 76ersCheck WagerWeb and find the best betting site!!!!

The 76ers (0-10) will begin a string of two straight games at The Center, pairing up with the Dallas Mavericks (6-4) at 7:00 PM on Monday.  The Sixers are in the midst of a stretch during which they go up against six straight opponents that currently hold winning records.  Dallas, having won three contests in a row, seems to have steadied itself after a 3-4 start.

From College Football, Casino Betting, Racebook Gambling, WagerWeb offers you the online gambling option.

The big guns sat out Dallas’ last game, a win over the Houston Rockets, but Dirk NowitzkiWesley Matthews, and Chandler Parsons all figure to be in action against Philly.

Parsons plans to play 20 minutes in this one, as he continues to work his way back from offseason knee surgery. He looked good in his last outing, going 4-6 from the field in 18 minutes against the Los Angeles Lakers. 20 minutes would be the most Parsons has played in a game this season, and any addition to his workload is a positive sign looking ahead to a rough next few weeks of the schedule.

The 76ers will also have their hands full with Nowitzki. He was 7-8 for 21 points in 20 minutes of action in one game against Philly last season, a 53-point Mavericks victory just over one year ago. The Sixers will use some combination of bigs against Dirk headlined by Jahlil Okafor and Nerlens Noel. Realistically, neither stands much of a chance against the future Hall of Famer in one-on-one situations. Especially the way Dirk has had it going in the early part of the schedule.

These two meet for what will be their first head-to-head battle of the season. Dallas won the last game in the matchup, bumping its SU record over the last 10 meetings to 8-2. With a 5-4-1 record, the Mavericks also have the advantage ATS.
