Women’s World Cup
Canada vs Cameroon 3:00 PM
Team Canada (5th in FIFA Rankings) and team Cameroon (46th in FIFA Rankings) meet for their first matches in group play. In the 2015 World Cup, Canada (the host team that year), was knocked out in the quarterfinals. Cameroon surprised everyone and managed to make it to the knockout stage, losing in the round of 16. Both teams will be looking to improve during this World Cup.
The Canadians are huge favorites at -625 and Cameroon at +1600. Cameroon is a quick team that has some youth and experience mixed in. They have a solid midfield and attack group. Look for Raissa Feudjio to give team Canada all they can handle. The best bet in this one isn’t Canada-625 (I think Cameroon may be able to pull an upset in this one, or at least earn a draw). The bet to take in this one is the OVER. At 2.5 goals, the OVER is a great play. Cameroon’s goaltender is 33-years old and seems to be a bit past her prime.
A fast Cameroon team is going to be looking to score with their speed. Canada is a great team and will certainly put up a goal or two of their own. However, I think Cameroon has a chance to score some goals in this game as well. I’m not entirely sold that Canada is going to win this game, but I am sold on these two teams combining for at least three goals. Taking a small shot on Cameroon at +1600 may end up being a good pick as well.
National Basketball Association
Golden State Warriors vs Toronto Raptors 9:00 PM
Game 5 of the NBA Finals should be interesting. Not just the game itself, but seeing whether or not Kevin Durant plays. Clearly, the Golden State Warriors are being outplayed without him. The Toronto Raptors three wins this series come by an average of 12 points. The Warriors only victory was by five points, a game in which they trailed by a dozen at one point. Durant is currently “questionable” at the time of this article being written. Even if Durant does become available today, it is a question of how much he will be able to actually contribute.
Without Durant, the Raptors at home should be able to claim the title tonight. They take better care of the ball (14 fewer turnovers than GS in the Finals), they make their free throws (93/103 in the Finals), and Kawhi Leonard has been unstoppable in this series (31.0 PPG, 10.25 RPG, 4.0 APG, and 2.0 SPG).
If Durant does somehow manage to play tonight, he won’t be a 100%. Anything less than that out of Durant won’t be enough to stop a Raptors team playing this well, especially at home. With the spread currently at -2, the Raptors are a great choice right now. They may be an even better choice if Durant plays, as he could possibly push the Warriors to become the favorites. The Raptors plus points would be an even greater bet, even against a Warriors team that features Durant (especially a banged up Durant).
Major League Baseball
Los Angeles Dodgers vs Los Angeles Angels 10:07 PM
Hyun-Jin Ryu makes the start today for the Los Angeles Dodgers. The Dodgers have the league’s best record (45-21 .682 win percentage) and Ryu very well could be the early leader for the N.L. Cy Young Award. Among qualified pitchers, Ryu is second in the Majors in WHIP (0.78), first in ERA (1.35), first in walks allowed (5), and tied for the lead in wins (9).
Ryu will be going up against a decent offense in the Los Angeles Angels that average 5.1 runs per game (T9th). However, with an excellent offense of his own that scores 5.3 runs per game (T3rd), Ryu should get plenty of run support even if he doesn’t have his best day. Although, I do expect Ryu will continue his early season success and have another solid outing today as the Dodgers pick up another win. The best part, the Dodgers are currently only a -182 favorite on the PlaySugarHouse Sportsbook. That is some great value for the best team in baseball with arguably the best pitcher this season on the mound.
