With a stacked sports schedule comes fervent sports bettors. “In Between the Lines” gives avid fans and sports bettors exactly what they want. Looking ahead to the upcoming week in sports, “In Between the Lines” offers inside analysis on line movements and key stats.
Here’s what you absolutely can’t miss this upcoming week in sports:
1. PGA – PGA Championship (5/23/21)
Corey Conners finished in first place at 5-under after the First Round of the 2021 PGA Championship. However, 3-under seemed to be the lucky number for six golfers on Thursday. Keegan Bradley, Viktor Hovland, Brooks Koepka, Aaron Wise, Sam Horsfield, and Cameron Davis were all T-2 at 3-under prior to the start of the Second Round.
Prior to the start of the tournament, Brooks Koepka was at +5000 to win. Before the Second Round started, he was at +1000 to win. Conners and Hovland were the favorites to win on Friday morning at +750. I like Koepka to win the tournament on Sunday. I also think Collin Morikawa is a decent bet to win at +1500. He finished the First Round T-8 at 2-under. Interestingly enough, Jordan Spieth is at +2000 to win the tournament after finishing the First Round T-41 at 1-over.
2. NBA – Memphis Grizzlies at Golden State Warriors (5/21/21 at 9pm)
In case you missed it, the Los Angeles Lakers defeated the Golden State Warriors 103-100 on Wednesday night. The Lakers will face the Phoenix Suns for the first Round 1 game of the NBA Playoffs on Sunday. The Warriors, on the other hand, have to win another Play-In Tournament game on Friday against the Grizzlies in order to advance to the Playoffs.
The Lakers are currently at +400 to win the NBA Finals right behind the Brooklyn Nets at +240. In my opinion, the Warriors are on par with the Lakers. LeBron James made a three-pointer with less than a minute left in Wednesday’s game to lock in the Lakers win. Golden State’s Steph Curry is a machine. I have no doubt that the Warriors will defeat the Grizzlies on Friday with ease. I like the Warriors spread at -4.5. I also like the Warriors on the moneyline at -170.
3. NHL – Game 4: Washington Capitals at Boston Bruins (5/21/21 at 6:30pm)
The Boston Bruins are currently leading the Stanley Cup Playoff Series 2-1. On Friday, the Capitals and Bruins will meet again for Game 4. I like the Capitals on the moneyline at +130. They are the underdog heading into this game, but I really like them to win this series. All three of the Series 1 games have gone into at least one period of overtime so far. So, I wouldn’t be surprised if Friday’s game also goes into OT. I also like Alex Ovechkin to score a goal for the Caps.
