NHL Stanley Cup Final & NBA Western Final On Tap Tonight

NHL Stanley Cup Final Game 2: Kings vs. Devils

After a thrilling 2-1 overtime win in Game One, and a ridiculous two plus day break, the Los Angeles Kings are looking to take a 2-0 advantage in the 2012 Stanley Cup Finals. Standing in their way is the New Jersey Devils – who had a deer in the headlights look when the Cup Final opened in the Swamp on Wednesday. Tonight’s puck betting action is schedule for 6:00 PM ET from the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey.

For the road warrior Kings (LA has won a record 11 straight playoff road games dating back to 2011) they need to keep doing what has got them to the big dance. Skate hard, play solid defense, get timely scoring, and continue to hit every Devil that moves. New Jersey knows they can play better but they are going to need a huge effort if they want to avoid going down 2-0 with the series shifting back to Los Angeles on Monday night. Bigger, stronger, harder hitting, and solid goaltending adds up to a winning formula for the Kings.

NBA Western Conference Final: Spurs vs. Thunder

Oklahoma City was battered and bruised during the first two games of the NBA West Final in San Antonio. The Thunder turned the table and put a hurt on the Spurs during Game Three at the Chesapeake Energy Arena on Thursday night. OKC laid an impressive 102-82 whopping on the boys from Texas to make the series 2-1 in favor of the Spurs. We fully expect a better effort from San Antonio tonight. This NBA West Final hoop wagering action hits the hard-court at 8:30 PM ET from Oklahoma City, OK.

After the first two games, we were starting to second-guess our call of the Spurs winning the West in six games. Truth be told, we still think we should have called San Antonio in five games as the Spurs are one of the most complete basketball teams we have ever seen. Make no mistake, the Thunder are a very talented basketball club, but they are still a year away from hoisting the Larry O’Brien Trophy – book it!
