New Orleans Pelicans at Sacramento Kings

New Orleans Pelicans at Sacramento KingsCheck WagerWeb and find the best betting site!!!!

The New Orleans Pelicans and the Sacramento Kings do battle tonight at the Sleep Train Arena.

The Pelicans have lost six of their last seven games and are currently on a four-game losing streak after losing to the Lakers by 95-91 last night. Tyreke Evans led the scoring with 21 points, Ryan Anderson had 15 points while Eric Gordon added 14 as the Pelicans lost their second straight game in the absence of Anthony Davis who sat out with discomfort in his back. Davis remains without a timetable for his return so his status for tonight is currently listed as questionable. New Orleans is now 11-26 on the season and 4-17 on the road.

The Kings have won three of their last five games but are coming off a 128-116 loss to the Warriors. DeMarcus Cousins led the team with 33 points, Rudy Gay added 23 points while Darren Collison had 16 off the bench, but it still wasn’t enough for the Kings as the Warriors had Stephen Curry who poured in eight 3-pointers to scorch them for 38 points. Overall, it was still somewhat of a moral victory for the Kings as they matched it with the Warriors for a majority of the game, but they were never good enough defensively as the Warriors finished with 56 percent shooting from the field. With the loss, Sacramento drops to 15-22 on the season and 10-10 at home.

Boston Bruins at Philadelphia Flyers

Boston Bruins at Philadelphia FlyersCheck WagerWeb and find the best betting site!!!!

The Boston Bruins and Philadelphia Flyers will play each other for the first time since late October when they face off in the Wednesday Night Rivalry game (8 p.m. ET; NBCSN, TVA Sports).

Philadelphia won 5-4 in overtime at TD Garden on Oct. 21, but the Bruins haven’t gone home empty-handed against the Flyers since a 5-2 loss at Wells Fargo Center on April 23, 2013. One big reason for Boston’s success against Philadelphia has been the play of goaltender Tuukka Rask, who has a 9-1-2 career record against the Flyers with a 2.07 goals-against average and a .929 save percentage

The Bruins look to shake out of their losing funk as they take to the road to battle the Flyers in Philadelphia on Wednesday night. The Boston looked poised to make a serious push at the Atlantic division crown just a couple of weeks back but thanks to their 3-6-1 stretch and Florida’s surge the tables have turned and now they are fighting to keep afloat sitting in fifth place. However, the entire division remains up for grabs as there is just five points separating second from sixth and with the Metro division heating up as well the B;s know that their only ticket into the dance will be claiming one of the three spots given to the Atlantic division. Boston is coming off a loss but they are a very impressive 12-4-3 on the road this season while the Flyers are 10-5-4 at home. The Flyers meanwhile are starting to turn things up a notch which is bad news for the rest of the Metropolitan division and those in the Atlantic aspiring for a wild card spot as this is a team who was vastly underachieving and their success was lying dormant waiting to be found. Philly has a pretty solid roster and when they get on a winning streak they are a tough group to slow down and while they may be a little too far removed from making a run at home ice in the first round they are a legitimate threat for a wild card spot.

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.

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

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.
