Current Odds are 7/1, 12.5%. They are projected to finish with 112 points and go over their pre-season futures line of 108.5. Based on wins per simulation they are projected to have the best record in the East. Based on money line odds their expected record at this point of the season is 11.2-7.8. At 10-7-2 they are short of expectations. Their 62-16-4 record last season was way ahead of what was expected of them. Their expected win percentage was just 60%. They were very good against the money line (+1714). 2 WASHINGTON CAPITALS 16-4-4 | Projection: 113.4 Points Win 64% of Neutral Ice Simulations Even with the juice, the Capitals are a good betting value.

Turning over new Maple Leafs One streak did end, although Sheldon Keefe has to hope that his NHL head coaching career will begin with a streak that goes beyond a debut win. The Maple Leafs ended their losing streak at six games by beating the Coyotes 3-1 in their first game after Mike Babcock fired. Read up on that win here. From hot streaks to cold The Islanders maintained their now-franchise-record breaking point streak of 16 games by beating the Penguins in overtime. In doing so, the Isles are also on a five-game winning streak. The Dallas Stars matched that winning streak with their fifth victory in a row, and are pretty hot in their own right, going 9-0-1 in their last 10 games. They’re also 12-1-1 in their last 14 contests. On the other end of the spectrum, the Flames put forth a painful, pitiful effort in dropping their sixth straight loss. The Predators were more competitive in many ways on Thursday, but Nashville has also lost six in a row. Tense times for two teams that … [Read more...] about The Buzzer: Streaks good and bad around NHL; Leafs turn the page
It's an NFC showdown with massive ramifications for playoff seeding in January by Patrik Walker @VoiceOfTheStar Nov 22, 2019 at 9:33 am ET • 4 min read Two of the best teams in the NFL and NFC will meet on "Sunday Night Football" in what will be a clash to help determine who gets home-field advantage in the playoffs. It's been a season dominated by the San Francisco 49ers, who rattled off a league-best 8-0 start before succumbing to a gut-wrenching Week 10 overtime loss to the Seattle Seahawks, in a game that would've also been a win if not for a shanked field goal in the extra possession by kicker Chase McLaughlin.Meanwhile, in Wisconsin, Aaron Rodgers has led the Packers to an 8-2 start that puts them only one game back of the conference-leading 49ers, and a victory in Santa Clara would give them the tiebreaker for home-field advantage in the playoffs if both end the season with the same record. Both teams know precisely how important this … [Read more...] about Packers at 49ers: Preview, prediction, how to watch, stream, more for potential NFC playoffs preview
Every day in the NBA there is a lot to unpack, so every weekday morning throughout the season we will give you the three things you need to know from the last 24 hours in the NBA. 1) Have the 5-11 Portland Trail Blazers fallen too far back to make playoffs? We’ve all heard a coach say it: “You can’t win a game in the first quarter, but you can lose it.” That might apply to the Trail Blazers this season. After losing to the Milwaukee Bucks on Thursday 137-129, Portland is now 5-11 and the 14 seed in the West, ahead of only the one team possibly more decimated by injuries than themselves (the Warriors). Portland has gone 2-9 in November. This was a team with Western Conference Finals expectations before the season started, now the question has to be asked: Has Portland’s slow start to the season dug too big a hole to climb out of and even make the playoffs? No. But things need to turn around sooner rather than later. On the positive side, the Trail Blazers … [Read more...] about Three Things to Know: Has 5-11 Portland fallen too far back to make playoffs?
