The Phoenix Suns (3-4) are playing at home tonight against a good Los Angeles Clippers (5-3) team, who is coming off a a tough road loss to the Dallas Mavericks last night, in what had the feel of a revenge game with DeAndre Jordan as the target, in his first return to Dallas since agreeing to sign with the Mavs as a free agent, then waffling, and ultimately spurning them this off-season.

The Pacific Division rivals are trying to chase the Golden State Warriors who lead the pack, with the Clippers second with a 5-3 record, while the Suns are third with a 3-4 record so far this season.

Both teams are looking for victories after they dropped their last games in the league and a win over a division rival should restore their confidence moving forward in this young season.

The Suns are trying to avoid losing for a third straight time as they face the Clippers.

The Falcons (7-2, 5-0 MAC) are on a roll having won six straight games, including five against MAC opponents. Bowling Green’s latest victim was the Ohio Bobcats, whom they dismantled 62-24 at home last week. Matt Johnson poured it on for the Falcons, connecting on 26 of his 35 passes for 365 yards and four touchdowns. Travis Green rolled over the Bobcats defense (13 car, 106 yards and 3 TD), while the duo of Gehrig Dieter (9 rec, 136 yards, 2 TD) and Roger Lewis (6 rec, 102 yards, TD) shined for the Falcons. Ohio did make it competitive early, tying the game at 14 early in the second quarter, but Bowling Green exploded from that point on, outscoring the Bobcats 48-10.

The Broncos (6-3, 5-0 MAC) are the other undefeated squad in conference play, having won five straight conference games. Western Michigan put a 50-spot on a team for the second straight week as the Broncos blew out Ball Sate 54-7 at home. The trio of Zach Terrell (16-of-22, 324 yards, 3 TD), Jamauri Bogan (18 car, 171 yards, 2 TD) and Corey Davis (7 rec, 163 yards, 3 TD) were unstoppable as they helped the Broncos record a school-record 711 yards of total offense. Western Michigan scored 40 unanswered points until the Cardinals notched their first score with 3:02 left in the third quarter. The Bronco defense also put up a solid effort, limiting the Cardinals to just 152 yards of total offense, which was the first time the Broncos have held a team under 200 yards since 2011 and the lowest total overall since 2007, when they held Temple to 146.

Bowling Green and Western Michigan will square off for the 53rd time Wednesday night with the Falcons leading the all-time series 38-18-3. The Broncos have won the last four meetings and nine of the last 12.

 

The Falcons are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games following a S.U. win and are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games overall while the Falcons are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 conference games. The over is 5-0-1 in Broncos last 6 games after accumulating more than 450 total yards in their previous game and the Broncos are 9-1 ATS in their last 10 games after accumulating more than 200 yards rushing in their previous game while going 9-1 ATS in their last 10 games after scoring more than 40 points in their previous game. The Falcons are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 meetings and the under is 5-1 in the last 6 meetings while the road team is 5-2 ATS in their last 7 meetings.

Washington Capitals vs Detroit Red Wings

Washington Capitals vs Detroit Red WingsCheck WagerWeb and find the best betting site!!!!

Two days after losing to the best team in the Western Conference, 4-1 to the Stars at home, the Wings host one of the better squads in the East. The Capitals have allowed the fewest goals in the NHL at just 25. It will be the first time Mike Green will face D.C., where he spent the first 10 seasons of his career. As for the Wings in goal, Petr Mrazek will get the starting nod.

Green notched his 250th career assist in a 4-1 loss to Dallas on Sunday as the Red Wings saw their three-game winning streak come to an end. Detroit must find its best form against Washington, which has won four of its last five games and is one of only five teams in the league with double-digit victories. Captain Alex Ovechkin leads the Capitals with eight goals – one in each of the last three games – and has 483 in his career, needing one to pass newly inducted Hall-of-Famer Sergei Fedorov for the most by a Russian-born player in NHL history. Five players have recorded at least 11 points for Washington, which is 4-1-0 on the road.

The Washington Capitals fell behind for the 4th consecutive game before taking down the Toronto Maple Leafs 3-2 in a shootout to send the Verizon Center crowd home with smiles. Nickolas Backstrom scored with less then a second left in regulation to send the game to overtime while Alex Ovechkin tallied in the second period and in the 4th round of the shootout to make a winner of Braden Holtby who allowed both goals on 25 shots. The Maple Leafs saw Daniel Winnik and James van Riemsdyk light the lamp but let one get away with James Reimer giving up two goals on 29 shots including the heartbreaker in the last second of regulation.

The Dallas Stars great start to the season continued in a 4-1 victory at Joe Louis Arena on Sunday that upped their record to 12-3-0. A balanced Stars attack saw Valeri Nichushkin and Cody Eakin while Tyler Seguin and Patrick Sharp scored and added assists. The offensive burst made life between the pipes for Kari Lehtonen good as he recorded 21 stops in picking up the win. The Red Wings never got their offense going with Gustav Nyquist scoring their only goal while Jimmy Howard recorded 20 stops before getting hurt in the third. The Red Wings have dropped have dropped to 7-6-1 with loss number three in a row.

Los Angeles Lakers vs Miami HeatCheck WagerWeb and find the best betting site!!!!

The Los Angeles Lakers’ tough start to the season continues as they are still seeking for their second win when they travel to the AmericanAirlines Arena to face the resurgent Miami Heat in the National Basketball Association.

The Heat have swept the two-game series in each of the past three seasons, having won the past seven meetings at AmericanAirlines Arena, with the Lakers winning just once in Miami since 2004

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

Kobe Bryant is averaging 16.5 points and 2.7 assists while Jordan Clarkson is averaging 16.5 points and two assists. Louis Williams is dishing 2.8 assists and Julius Randle is grabbing 8.5 rebounds. The Los Angeles Lakers are shooting just 29.1 percent from downtown but are getting 40.7 points from their bench. Still, the Lakers lack of defense is their ultimate downfall, as they’ve given up 100-plus points in 14 of their last 17 games. Four of the Lakers last eight wins have come on the road.

The Miami Heat need a win after splitting their last six games. The Miami Heat are averaging 96.6 points on 45.7 percent shooting and allowing 90.4 points on 40.9 percent shooting. Dwyane Wade is averaging 18.9 points and 4.1 assists while Chris Bosh is averaging 16.6 points and 9.7 rebounds. Hassan Whiteside is grabbing 10.9 rebounds and Goran Dragic is dishing 4.1 assists.

Ronda Rousey vs Holly Holm

Ronda Rousey vs Holly HolmCheck WagerWeb and find the best betting site!!!!

When: Saturday, Nov. 14 at 10 p.m. ET

Long-dominant women’s bantamweight championRonda Rousey (12-0 MMA, 6-0 UFC) looks for her seventh consecutive title defense when she takes on former boxing champion and undefeated MMA contender Holly Holm (9-0 MMA, 2-0 UFC). Rousey, a hefty 16-1 favorite heading into Saturday’s fight, is ranked No. 1 in the NOS Energy Drink MMA women’s bantamweight rankings, and Holm is No. 9

Rousey is 12-0-0 and her last fight — a TKO over Bethe Correia on Aug. 1 — lasted just 34 seconds. The much-anticipated Rousey-Holm bout will be held at the Etihad Stadium in Melbourne, Australia

From College Football, Casino Betting, Racebook Gambling, WagerWeb offers you the best online gambling options, check it now!

A crowd of over 60,000 is predicted to turn out for the occasion and Rousey admits if she’s ever going to break the record, it’s in Melbourne.

“I’m very conscious of it,” Rousey told foxsports.com.au of the attendance record.

“It’s an ambitious goal but Australia’s the perfect place to try and do that. The people have a real appreciation for fighting that is unrivalled. They have the ability to come and show their support for a historic event.”

Both women are undefeated in their MMA careers, which has rocketed Rousey to superstardom and made Holm a credible opponent to Rousey’s dominant reign at the top. This will be a classic grappler vs. striker match, which should it make it interesting.

The co-headliner is a UFC strawweight championship bout, as queen of the division Joanna Jedrzejczyk meets up with contender Valerie Letourneau. Letourneau skyrocketed up the rankings and surprisingly snatched this title shot against the Polish champion. Jedrzejczyk is undefeated and has looked nothing short of spectacular thus far in her UFC career.

The card also features a rematch of a barnburner from not long ago when Mark Hunt takes on Antonio Silva. Then you have names like Robert Whittaker, Uriah Hall and Stefan Struve. It looks to be an exciting night that will go down in the books as one of the best in 2015.

Arizona Coyotes vs Anaheim Ducks

Arizona Coyotes vs Anaheim DucksCheck WagerWeb and find the best betting site!!!!

Arizona Coyotes (6-6-1) at Anaheim Ducks (5-7-2)
NHL Hockey: Monday, November 9, 2015 at 10:00 pm (Honda Center)
The Line: Anaheim Ducks -208 / Arizona Coyotes +186
Over/Under: 5

The Coyotes are returning to Anaheim as a struggling team, with Smith going through some woes as the Ducks seek a fifth straight win Monday night.

Last Games:

Ducks: Saturday, 11/7 at San Jose. “Ducks Shut Out Sharks 1-0 For Fourth Straight Win”

Coyotes: Saturday, 11/7 vs New York Rangers. “Coyotes Fall 4-1 To Rangers As Smith Disappoints Again”

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

Anaheim is expected to turn back to Frederik Andersen, who has posted a 1.96 GAA in winning his last three starts. Andersen is 3-0-2 with a 1.16 GAA in five career starts against Arizona.

Coyotes defenseman Nicklas Grossmann, who scored twice Thursday, left Saturday’s game in the second period with a lower-body injury.

Arizona’s Anthony Duclair had a hat trick the last time these teams met but has no points in his last seven games.

The Arizona Coyotes look to stay ahead of the Anaheim Ducks in the Pacific division standings with a victory on the road on Monday but as losers of seven of 10 the Coyotes appear to have regressed since their beginning of the season surge. Arizona takes on a Ducks team that had everyone panicking after the first two weeks of the season but since their sluggish start they have ripped off four wins in a row and are back on the radar as a Western Conference contender. The Coyotes will likely start Mike Smith in this one as he will go up against Frederik Andersen. Arizona is 4-2-1 away from home this season while the Ducks have improved their mark at home to 4-2-1 of late.
The Anaheim Ducks have started to turn things around and are back to be heavy favourites on home ice as we see tonight and rightfully so. For a group that had a very tough time scoring goals to start the year they are finally giving Frederik Andersen so much needed offensive support and as such the team is winning hockey games and are in a great spot to do so again tonight.

Antoine Douglas vs. Les Sherrington

Antoine Douglas vs. Les SherringtonCheck WagerWeb and find the best betting site!!!!

When: Friday, November 6 at 10 p.m. ET

Where: The D Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas

Antoine Douglas (18-0-1. 8 KOs), a world-ranked rising middleweight prospect, will put his undefeated record on the line against veteran Les Sherrington (35-7, 20 KOs) in a 10-round bout for the WBA and WBO International titles, on Friday, Nov. 6, at Downtown Las Vegas Events Center (DLVEC), across from the D Las Vegas in iconic Downtown Las Vegas.

Antoine’s fifth ShoBox appearance will tie him with eight other fighters for second place on the all-time list (the ShoBox appearance record is held by Chris Avalos with six appearances). All of the fighters with five or more ShoBox appearances went on to challenge for a world title, five triumphed –Andre Ward, Ishe Smith, Robert Guerrero, Kendall Holt and Badou Jack—and three fell short –Avalos, Mike Arnaoutis and Sechew Powell. A sixth five-time Shobox participant, Lateef Kayode, is scheduled to challenge WBA Cruiserweight World Champion Denis Lebedec on Nov. 4.

Douglas, of Burke, Va., is the WBA’s ninth-ranked contender. He will enter the 10-round bout for the WBA and WBO International 160-pound titles with a record of 18-0-1, 12 KOs. Australia’s Sherrington, the WBA’s No. 12th-rated contender, is 35-7, 30 KOs.

Douglas, 23, has been impressive in four consecutive victories since he boxed a draw with former world title challenger Michel Soro in an eight-rounder that was part of the 200th ShoBox telecast on July 25, 2014. Douglas has won his last two starts by knockout: on July 17, a third-round TKO over Istvan Szili and on March 13, a sixth-round TKO over Thomas LaManna.

Sherrington of Burleigh, Gold Coast, Australia, will be fighting outside of his native land for the first time in this, his U.S. and 2015 debuts. He’s won two in a row and is 8-1 in his last nine fights, the loss coming to former IBF World Middleweight Champion Soliman in December 2013.

Since the bitter defeat to Soliman that knocked him out of the world rankings, Sherrington has been looking to redeem himself in a major matchup in a major stage. This is his opportunity.

The well-conditioned 6-foot, 33-year-old Sherrington turned his career around after losing his pro debut in April 2002 and going 4-3 in his first seven starts. Since March 2006, he’s 25-3 while winning several minor titles. In his last start on Dec. 2014 he captured the WBA Oceania Middleweight Title with a shutout 10-round decision over Samir Santos Barbosa.

Last Time Out

Douglas

In an exemplary performance, Douglas walked through Istvan Szili in three rounds. The 23-year-old’s speed, power and punching accuracy proved to be too much as he dropped Szili three times before securing the victory. The win was Douglas’ fourth straight since his majority draw with Michel Soro in July 2014.

The KO was his second straight and third in the last four fights.

 

Sherrington

Sherrington has been around the block a few times. The 33-year-old from Australia has bee a pro since 2002. In his last fight, he won a lopsided unanimous decision over Samir Santos Barbosa. Sherringtondominated the fight, but then again, he should have considering Barbosa has a record of just 36-13-3.

Sherrington hasn’t faced top-notch competition throughout much of his career. The most recognizable name on his resume is Sam Soliman, but Sherrington lost that fight via ninth-round TKO. He might be battling some ring rust since his last bout took place almost a year ago.

Aside from that, Douglas is the most skilled young fighter Sherringtonhas ever faced. To a degree, simply going the distance would be an accomplishment for the Aussie.

Toronto Raptors vs Orlando Magic

Toronto Raptors vs Orlando MagicCheck WagerWeb and find the best betting site!!!!

The road trip continues tonight as the Raptors (5-0) take on the Magic (1-4) at Amway Center in Orlando. Toronto is coming off impressive back-to-back wins out West over the Mavs and Thunder to enter tonight’s contest as one of two undefeated teams left in the league, alongside the NBA Champion Golden State Warriors. Orlando’s record is deceiving, having played some good basketball and lost two games in overtime to top-ranked teams in the Rockets and Thunder.

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

Despite moving to 5-0 for the first time with Wednesday’s 103-98 win at Oklahoma City, Casey is trying to keep Toronto even keel after back-to-back Atlantic Division titles led to first-round playoff defeats.

The Raptors will try to continue their success at both ends, averaging an Eastern Conference-best 106.0 points while allowing 95.6. They’ve also held their last three opponents to a combined 25.9 percent shooting in the fourth quarter.

Toronto will certainly have to keep an eye on Evan Fournier in this meeting. A night after putting up a career-high 30 points in a 103-94 win at New Orleans, he had 29 and helped limit James Harden to 6-of-22 shooting in Wednesday’s 119-114 overtime loss at Houston.

Fournier, who averaged a career-high 12.0 points last season, is scoring a team-high 20.6. He’s made 55.4 percent from the field and 9 of 21 from 3-point range in his last three. Fournier has played well in his past five games against the Raptors, averaging 17.8 points.

Probable starters

Toronto: Kyle Lowry, DeMar DeRozan, DeMarre Carroll, Luis Scola, Jonas Valanciunas.

Orlando: Elfrid Payton, Victor Oladipo, Tobias Harris, Evan Fournier, Dewayne Dedmon.

Key matchup:Evan Fournier vs. Kyle Lowry/Cory Joseph.

Need to know:

  • The Raptors are off to their best start to a season but still have a ways to go to equal their biggest winning streak. They ran off nine straight in 2001-02
  • Nikola Vucevicwon’t play on Friday night. The team’s centre is out with a bone bruise on his right knee. Dewane Dedmon is expected to start in his place
  • Orlando is 1-4 but has fallen in a pair of very tight games this season. The Magic went to double OT with Oklahoma City on Oct. 30 and took the Rockets to overtime on Wednesday. They are losing their games by an average of 3.5 points
  • Mississauga’sAndrew Nicholson, now in his fourth year as a pro with the Magic, has seen action in one game this season.
