I am mentioning this because at this moment it's not the best time to preview anything involving the New York Jets for 2016 because I don't know who their starting quarterback will be. http://www.docsports.com/2016/nfl-odds-analyzing-new-york-jets-road-schedule-245.html Five to Follow MLB Betting: Thursday, May 26, 2016, Opening Line Report http://www.docsports.com/2016/mlb-betting-thursday-may-26-opening-line-report-124.html I must admit I take a bit of glee when bad things happen to New York teams or their star athletes. I don't mean injuries or arrests or anything but just big-time struggles. New Yorkers build their guys up like they are always better than anyone else. That brings me to Mets pitcher Matt Harvey, who used to be the toast of the town as the "Dark Knight" whenever he took the mound. It was an event. Now it's becoming rather clear that the Mets might have ruined Harvey last season by using him so much his first season after Tommy John surgery. http://www.docsports.com/2016/mlb-betting-thursday-may-26-opening-line-report-124.html Toronto Raptors vs. Cleveland Cavaliers Game 5 NBA Picks: More Free Props http://www.docsports.com/2016/toronto-raptors-cleveland-cavaliers-game-5-nba-picks-free-props-099.html Victoria Day was celebrated in Canada this past weekend. It is a statutory national holiday and serves as the unofficial kickoff to summer. The weather was hot - 30 degrees Celsius (86 Fahrenheit for my friends south of the border). It was the perfect weekend to get away, relax and do some fishing. At least that's what I thought. http://www.docsports.com/2016/toronto-raptors-cleveland-cavaliers-game-5-nba-picks-free-props-099.html Free NBA Picks Toronto vs. Cleveland Game 5 Props http://www.docsports.com/2016/free-nba-picks-toronto-cleveland-game-5-props-725.html If the Cleveland Cavaliers were a publicly-traded stock, the last week or so would have been a wild ride for investors. After cruising through their first two playoff series with four-game sweeps against both Detroit and Atlanta, they opened as heavy favorites on the opening series price to easily get past Toronto in the Eastern Conference Finals. http://www.docsports.com/2016/free-nba-picks-toronto-cleveland-game-5-props-725.html Tampa Bay Lightning at Pittsburgh Penguins Game 7 Free Picks & Odds http://www.docsports.com/free-picks/nhl-hockey/2016/Tampa-Bay-Lightning-at-Pittsburgh-Penguins-Game-7-Free-Picks-Odds-510.html The Tampa Bay Lightning will match up with the Pittsburgh Penguins on Thursday, May 26, 2016 in Game 7 of their playoff series.

They made a brilliant move in 2013 in hiring Bruce Arians as their head coach and have won at least 10 games each season since. Last year they won a surprising 13 regular-season games in taking the NFC West title -- I definitely had Seattle winning that division again. http://www.docsports.com/2016/nfl-odds-analyzing-arizona-cardinals-road-schedule-407.html Five to Follow MLB Betting: Wednesday, May 25, 2016, Opening Line Report http://www.docsports.com/2016/mlb-betting-wednesday-may-25-opening-line-report-431.html It's not too often that I'll say a team missing a guy hitting .236 with five homers and 16 RBIs is a huge loss, but that's definitely the case for the Tampa Bay Rays and center fielder Kevin Kiermaier. He broke two bones attempting to make a diving catch on Saturday in Detroit and was to have surgery on Tuesday. http://www.docsports.com/2016/mlb-betting-wednesday-may-25-opening-line-report-431.html Expert MLB Betting Advice: Weekly Baseball Bullpen Report http://www.docsports.com/2016/expert-mlb-betting-advice-baseball-bullpen-report-123.html This week's look at MLB's hottest and coldest bullpens has an interesting twist. The "hot list" for the past week is dominated by American League clubs, while the "cold list" has a decided senior circuit flavor. As is usually the case, these performances had a strong correlation to wins and losses. http://www.docsports.com/2016/expert-mlb-betting-advice-baseball-bullpen-report-123.html Expert MLB Betting Advice: Best Underdog Run Line Teams http://www.docsports.com/2016/expert-mlb-betting-advice-best-underdog-run-line-teams-240.html The Major League Baseball season is nearly a fourth of the way complete, and many of the year's biggest storylines have already taken shape. The Chicago Cubs are flirting with greatness-they have a +109 run differential and are on pace to produce 110 wins on the year-while pitchers like Jake Arrieta, Clayton Kershaw and Chris Sale continue dominate and to flirt with history on a nightly basis. http://www.docsports.com/2016/expert-mlb-betting-advice-best-underdog-run-line-teams-240.html Weekly Q&A with Doc's Sports Expert Handicapper Raphael Esparza http://www.docsports.com/2016/weekly-q-a-expert-sports-handicapper-raphael-esparza-653.html Doc's Sports' Raphael Esparza is considered to be an expert handicapper for a number of different sports, including soccer. In this week's discussion, we will get his take on the futures odds for two major soccer tournaments getting underway in the month of June. We will also talk about the current road to the NBA Finals. http://www.docsports.com/2016/weekly-q-a-expert-sports-handicapper-raphael-esparza-653.html PGA Tour Picks: Dean & DeLuca Invitational Odds and Expert Betting Predictions http://www.docsports.com/2016/pga-tour-picks-dean-deluca-invitational-odds-expert-betting-predictions-761.html Apparently I picked Sergio Garcia to win a tournament a week too early. The Spaniard was my choice to win the Players Championship two weeks ago but couldn't manage that. Garcia did take home the AT&T Byron Nelson on Sunday, beating Brooks Koepka in a playoff. Those two finished at 15-under 265. Koepka handed the win to Sergio by driving into the water on that first playoff hole. http://www.docsports.com/2016/pga-tour-picks-dean-deluca-invitational-odds-expert-betting-predictions-761.html
