Columbus Blue Jackets at Carolina Hurricanes

Columbus Blue Jackets at Carolina HurricanesCheck WagerWeb and find the best betting site!!!!

The Blue Jackets look to snap out of their losing funk and chase down the Hurricanes when the two teams meet in Raleigh on Friday.

The Columbus Blue Jackets have been one of the league’s biggest disappointments this season as a very slow start combined with underachieving start power has forced their hand in the Metro and they have traded away one of their bright young stars in Ryan Johansen. The Jackets badly needed some help on the blue line and they got it in the form of Seth Jones from the Nashville Predators and while the trade worked out in everyone’s favour it is tough for the Jackets to part with the youngster just a year after he was basically given the keys to the city in Columbus. The Jackets will look to pull within four points of the Canes in the Metro division.

The Hurricanes meanwhile have been playing much better of late and while they still have a ways to go before they can be considered a contender for a wild card spot they are certainly doing their best to get there. The Canes are just five points out of a wild card spot and with a winnable game on the docket here they could very well land in a postseason position by the end of the weekend in what would be a pretty big surprise in its own right.

Utah Jazz at Houston Rockets

Utah Jazz at Houston RocketsCheck WagerWeb and find the best betting site!!!!

Game #33: Rockets (16-19) @ Jazz (15-17) 
Location: Vivint Smart Home Arena • Salt Lake City, UT
Time: 7:00 p.m. (MT) 

The Rockets look to end a 4-game losing streak when they take on the Jazz in Utah.

The Jazz will be eager to avoid a third straight loss after getting thumped by the Spurs in a 123-98 rout last night. Trey Burke led the team with 21 points in just 24 minutes off the bench, Gordon Hayward added 18 points while Jeff Withey had 10 points, but no other player finished in double figures as the Jazz were just no match for the Spurs last night. With the loss, Utah falls to 15-19 on the season overall and 5-11 on the road where they’ve lost six straight.

The Rockets had lost four straight before sneaking past the Jazz in a 93-91 win at Utah on Monday. James Harden led the way with 30 points and seven assists, Dwight Howard added 16 points and 13 rebounds while Trevor Ariza had 13 as the Rockets fought back from a 15-point deficit in the third quarter to beat the Jazz and improve to 17-19 on the season and 7-10 on the road.

In ATS trends, the Jazz are 1-4 ATS in their last five road games and 10-2-1 ATS in their last 13 games playing on zero days rest, while the Rockets are 6-2 ATS in their last eight home games and 0-5 ATS in their last five games overall.

The key for Houston tonight will be rebounding once again. In the first leg, Houston outshot the Jazz 49% to 40%. They outshot the Jazz from 3 and shot a higher percentage from the free throw line as well. Turnovers and assists were basically the same as well. So what was the difference? Rebounding. The Jazz grabbed 10 extra boards, including 15 offensive rebounds. Basically, the Rockets were better or equal to the Jazz in every way except taht one. We’ll see if JBB and the team understands that tonight.

Carolina Hurricanes at Vancouver Canucks

Carolina Hurricanes at Vancouver CanucksCheck WagerWeb and find the best betting site!!!!

The Canucks look to shake off a loss and pull back to the .500 mark with a home ice win on Wednesday against the visiting Carolina Hurricanes.

The Hurricanes look to rebound after back to back overtime losses and they have a great shot at it here against a Canucks side that has had a tough time with consistency this season and have the added factor that Eddie Lack will be motivated to beat his former team who cast him aside two years ago. The Canes have been playing much better of late and while they still have a ways to go and will likely fall short of the playoffs it is nice to see them being more competitive and jumping up the standings in the Metropolitan division. Eddie Lack will go up against Jakob Markstrom who continues to man the crease for the Canucks of late.

The Canucks have been up and down all season long and sit in fourth place in the Pacific division and while that doesn’t sound too bad when you hear it you have to know just how bad the Pacific has been this season to understand the magnitude of it. Vancouver has but 39 points in 40 games and if they were in the Central division they’d be in dead last so thankfully they are in a position to claim one of the top three spots in the Pacific or else they could miss the playoffs entirely.

Tuesday, January 5, 2016 at 7:00 pm (Madison Square Garden)
The Line: New York Rangers -110 / Dallas Stars +100 — Over/Under: 5.5

Tuesday night will be an active night in the NHL this week. In one interesting game, the Dallas Stars will be in New York to take on the New York Rangers at Madison Square Garden. The game will be played following a precedent-setting occurrence in the Dallas Stars’ season – they recently lost back-to-backs for the first time all year.

The Dallas Stars suffered a rare loss against the New York Islanders in their last outing and will look to salvage a split against the Rangers on Tuesday and put up their league leading 29th victory of the season. Dallas is known for their offensive prowess but they were dealt a taste of their own medicine on Sunday as the Isles put up six goals on them as they fell by a 6-5 final in what was their ninth regulation loss of the year. The Stars will look to get back on track here though and improve their road record to 13-5-4 but will be up against Henrik Lundqvist who needs to snap the Blue Shirts out of their funk that currently has them on a 3-6-1 stretch and sitting in a very congested Metro division.

The Rangers meanwhile have been up and down this season and much of their success has come at home while they have looked pedestrian most of the year on the road with a 7-9-3 mark outside of MSG. The Rangers remain a serious threat in the East but until they get some of their big dogs back in action they will be hard pressed to keep up offensively with the likes of Washington and Dallas and that is exactly the scenario they find themselves in here.

It’s an Eastern Conference match-up as the Chicago Bulls host the Milwaukee Bucks at the United Center as the regular season of the National Basketball Association continues.

The game is on January 5, 2016 at 8:00 PM ET.

The Bucks were going for a third straight win last night, but instead got run off the court by the Spurs in a 123-98 beatdown. All five starters finished in double figures, with Khris Middleton scored 19 points, Michael Carter-Williams added 16 points and Greg Monroe chipping in with 15, but the Bucks just couldn’t find a way to slow down the Spurs who shot 54 percent from the field to finish with a season high in total points. With the loss, Milwaukee falls to 14-22 on the season overall and 9-7 at home.

The Bulls have won five of their last six and will be aiming for a fifth straight win after sneaking past the Raptors in a 115-113 thriller on Sunday. Nikola Mirotic had 17 points while Pau Gasol added 19 points, 13 rebounds and six assists, but this win was all about Jimmy Butler who poured in a record 40 points in the second half after scoring just two points in the first half. With the win, Chicago improves to 20-12 on the season and 6-7 on the road. Derrick Rose was once again absent from the starting lineup as he deals with his right hamstring injury.
BUZZER BEATERS

  1. Butler also had one steal against Toronto to extend his streak of consecutive games with at least one theft to 40.
  2. Bucks C John Henson is 16-of-22 from the floor during his last five games.
  3. Rose averaged 19 points and a team-high 6.5 assists in the six-game playoff series against Milwaukee.

The Boston Celtics (18-15) take on the (10-23) Brooklyn Nets tonight  in the second game of a home and home series between the two teams.

The Celtics had won four of five before Saturday’s 100-97 home loss to the Nets. Isaiah Thomas led the team with 24 points and six assists, Jae Crowder added 16 points while Evan Turner had 12 off the bench, but the undersized Celtics simply had no answer for the Net’s Brook Lopez who poured in 30 points on 11 of 24 shooting. Coming off a disappointing loss to the struggling Lakers, the Celtics really wanted to bounce back and get back into the winner’s circle but the second straight loss drops them to 18-15 on the season and 9-9 at home.

As mentioned earlier, Lopez dominated the paint but he also had plenty of help as Joe Johnson snapped out of his shooting slump to add 20 points while Thaddeus Young had 16 points and 10 rebounds in a much-needed win for the Nets. Unfortunately, Jarrett Jack’s knee gave out on him during the win and while it was orginally called just a sprain, further analysis has confirmed that he tore his right ACL meaning he will miss the remainder of the season.

In ATS trends, the Celtics are 20-8 ATS in their last 28 road games and 5-2 ATS in their last seven road games against a team with a losing home record, while the Nets are 5-0 ATS in their last five games against a team with a winning record and 19-7 ATS in their last 26 games overall.
