The Toronto Blue Jays and the Cleveland Indians will match up to kick off their MLB series on Thursday.

The Jays will be going with RHP Aaron Sanchez in the start Thursday. In his first start of the year on March 30 versus Detroit, Sanchez logged a win with 5.0 innings, three hits, zero earned and six strikeouts.

Toronto managed a nice 5-3 victory against the Orioles on Wednesday (it was 5-0 heading into the ninth inning). The hero for the Jays in that one was Randal Grichuck with a pair of solo home runs, three runs and three hits.

Over on the Indians’ side, they’re sending out Trevor Bauer on Thursday. In Bauer’s first start this year on March 30, he turned in a great outing with 7.0 innings, one earned and nine strikeouts in a no-decision versus Minnesota.

The Indians dropped their Wednesday game versus the White Sox 8-3. Hanley Ramirez put up a two-run homer in that one, while Carlos Santana logged two hits, one run and one RBI.

The Jays are 3-7 in their last 10 in game one of a series and 1-4 in their last five Thursday games. Toronto is 5-1 in Sanchez’s last six starts and 0-4 in his last four Thursday starts.

Meanwhile, the Indians are 46-20 in the last 66 Thursday games and 7-0 in Bauer’s last seven Thursday starts. Cleveland is 7-2 in Bauer’s last nine starts and 9-3 in his last 12 home starts.

Sanchez looked great in his first action of the year, and that performance will at least temporarily rid us of the memory of his 13 earned over 9.1 innings in a three-start period last summer.

As for Bauer, he was used sparingly down the stretch last year, and for the most part did pretty well until his final appearance (four hits; two earned; 1.1 innings versus Houston on October 8).

This should be a good matchup and a fun series overall, but I like Bauer to come out firing again and help the Indians to a win.
The Indians offense again did little to give the sparse crowd at Progressive Field much tocheer about on Wednesday, but it was the outing of their ace, Corey Kluber, that really did them in as they fell to 2-3 with an 8-3 loss to Chicago.

The Sox slammed Kluber for six runs, four earned, on eight hits with three walks and four K’s in just 3.1 innings.

The bullpen did its job, allowing two runs in 5.2 innings, with those two runs coming off a blast from Yoan Moncada in the eighth to make it an 8-1 game at the time.

Again though the offense was awful, as the team had just two hits going into the ninth, when Hanley Ramirez hit a two-run homer to make the final look a little more respectable.

Here’s a few takeaways from the latest Tribe loss as they get set for the Blue Jays on Thursday with a 6:10pm first pitch.

It wasn’t tough to see early on that Corey Kluber just didn’t have ‘it’ on the mound, unlike what fans saw out of him against the Twins.

Terry Francona tried and did give him time to get in a groove, but in the end he was not sharp at all as the Sox just beat him up for six earned runs, eight overall, in 3.1 innings.

“I don’t think it was really much out of the usual way teams attack me,” Kluber said after the loss. “I just didn’t do a good job making good pitches, and I left too many balls over the plate.”

Maybe the biggest takeaway from his outing is that whatever was going on was not the result of an injury, and that he said it was just a day where he didn’t feel comfortable on the mound.

The Indians had Sox pitcher Carlos Rondon going early, as they had runners on in the first inning down 3-0, and they got it to 3-1 with runners on first and second.

Hanley Ramirez struck out, and after a wild pitch the Tribe had runners on second and third with two outs, but Greg Allen was crossed up with a slider that he chased, thus ending by far the best chance the Indians had to do damage against Rondon.

He settled in, and would from there not allow another hit, he struck out nine on the day, and walked one over six innings of work.

Other than the eighth inning on Monday, the Indians offense has just not put a good inning with a couple hits, walks or even reaching on an error together.

Consider that now the team sits at 2-3, which isn’t a big deal five games in, but the alarming number is the fact this club is hitting (gulp) .171 (25-146) on the season.

That’s not going to win in any league, and no matter who you have on the mound you have to find a way to hit the ball better than that.

The club has struck out 13 times in four of the five games (six the other game for a total of 58 times), and their inability to put the ball in play is killing innings.

After Wednesday’s loss the team still has a number of players that are hitting .000 – Roberto Perez, Greg Allen, Eric Stamets.

Other than Carlos Santana and the two homers by Hanley Ramirez, there’s been nothing positive from this offense.

Lightning vs Maple Leafs

Lightning vs Maple Leafs Live : Tampa Bay clinched the Presidents 2019 ’ Trophy weeks ago and remains the heavy Sports Interaction favourite to win the second Stanley Cup in franchise history. The only thing the Lightning have to play for is potentially tying the NHL single-season record for wins, which Detroit Red Wings. Tampa would have to win this game and Saturday in Boston.After splitting a back-to-back in Ottawa and Montreal to begin the week, the Lightning continue their road trip on Thursday night with a matchup vs. the Maple Leafs in Toronto.

The National Hockey League this week updated its iPhone app with support for CarPlay, providing convenient access to live radio broadcasts of games from a vehicle’s dashboard just in time for the 2019 Stanley Cup Playoffs.The app has a very simple interface that displays a list of the day’s scheduled games and start times. When a game begins, options will become visible to tune in live to the home or away radio broadcasts, with no subscription or account required. The score and time remaining are also shown for games in progress.

NHL scouts are getting ready to make their last evaluations and set up their final lists ahead of the 2019 NHL Draft in Vancouver on June 21-22.NHL Central Scouting hopes to make that process easier beginning Wednesday when it meets to determine the final rankings of the top 217 North American skaters and 31 North American goaltenders eligible for the 2019 draft. Dan Marr, director of NHL Central Scouting, will chair the six-day meeting, which will include input from eight full-time scouts.

The NHL Draft Lottery to determine the first 15 picks of the NHL draft will be held in Toronto on April 9.”The challenging part of any final ranking meeting is determining the order between each of the players, particularly those in the first round, based on their NHL projection,” Marr said. “Some players ranked high might be at a development level to which they can go right to the NHL, while some others require additional development time, yet their upside potential could be much higher when projecting 3-4 years away.”

Goran Stubb, NHL Director of European Scouting, will supply and recommend to Marr his ranking of the top International skaters and goaltenders later next week.Here are 5 things to watch for at NHL Central Scouting’s final meeting:How many players from USA Hockey’s National Team Development Program under-18 team could be first-round picks?

Center Jack Hughes (5-foot-10, 170 pounds) was No. 1 in Central Scouting’s midterm ranking of North American skaters and likely will hold that position in the final ranking. Hughes leads the NTDP with 86 points (23 goals, 63 assists) in 41 games, and has set NTDP career records in assists (139) and points (202).

There were seven other players from the NTDP projected as first-round candidates at the midterm: forwards Alex Turcotte (No. 5), Matthew Boldy (No. 6), Trevor Zegras (No. 7), and Cole Caufield (No. 15), and defensemen Cameron York (No. 12) and Alex Vlasic (No. 25). Also, Spencer Knight was No. 1 among North American goalies. The expectation is these players again will be listed as potential first-round targets in the final release.

Who is the next-best North American skater after Jack Hughes?There could be as many as five players in the running for No. 2 after Hughes. Center Kirby Dach (6-3, 199) of Saskatoon in the Western Hockey League, center Dylan Cozens (6-3, 181) of Lethbridge in the WHL, defenseman Bowen Byram (6-0, 194) of Vancouver in the WHL, Turcotte (5-11, 189) and Boldy (6-1, 187).

Dach, No. 2 on Central Scouting’s midterm list, had 73 points (25 goals, 48 assists) in 62 regular-season games. Cozens (No. 3) ranked 11th in the WHL with 84 points (34 goals, 50 assists) in 68 games. Byram ranked third among WHL defensemen with 71 points (26 goals, 45 assists) in 67 games. Boldy is fourth on the NTDP with 69 points (30 goals, 39 assists) in 55 games, and Turcotte is fifth with 53 points (23 goals, 30 assists) in 30 games.

Is there a dark horse prospect to keep an eye on?Moose Jaw left wing Brayden Tracey (6-0, 177), No. 73 in the midterm ranking, led WHL rookies with 81 points (36 goals, 45 assists) and 12 power-play goals in 66 regular-season games, and played on the top line and No. 1 power-play unit. He was named WHL Eastern Conference rookie of the year.How strong are the goalies eligible for the 2019 draft?

Knight (6-3, 197) hopes to become the 10th United States-born goalie to be chosen in the first round and first since Jake Oettinger went No. 26 to the Dallas Stars in 2017. Hunter Jones (6-4, 196) of Peterborough in the Ontario Hockey League, Mads Sogaard (6-7, 192) of Medicine Hat in the WHL also are in the mix of goalies projected to hear their names as early as the second- or third round.

Knight, who is 27-3-0 with a 2.50 goals-against average and .906 save percentage in 32 games this season, and also won a silver medal as the third goalie for the U.S. at the 2019 IIHF World Junior Championship. He holds the record for career wins (54) at the NTDP.

Who are the top high school players available?Forwards John Farinacci (5-11, 185) of Dexter School in Massachusetts and Ryder Donovan (6-3, 184) of Duluth East in Minnesota, and defensemen Jayden Struble (6-0, 194) of St. Sebastian’s School in Massachusetts; Jackson Lacombe (6-1, 171) of Shattuck-St. Mary’s Prep in Minnesota; Braden Doyle (5-11, 167) of Lawrence Academy in Massachusetts; and Cade Webber (6-6, 194) of Rivers Academy in Massachusetts might be projected to go in the second or third round.

“The high school and prep school prospects include some very talented forwards and defensemen that have a chance to be selected in the first three rounds rather than being later-round considerations,” Marr said.Welcome to the Stanley Cup Playoffs Buzz, a daily look at the races for the 2019 NHL postseason.

St. Louis Blues at Chicago Blackhawks (8 p.m. ET; NBCSN, TVAS): The Blues play against the Blackhawks with the chance to tie the Winnipeg Jets and Nashville Predators for first place in the Central Division, an incredible feat given that they were last overall in the standings on Jan. 2. The Blues are two points back of the Jets and Predators with a game in hand. The Blackhawks were eliminated from playoff contention on Tuesday.

France vs Japan

France vs Japan Live : Japan face France in women’s World Cup warm-up Auxerre (France) (AFP) – In a heavyweight warm-up match for this summer’s Women’s World Cup, hosts France take on Japan, champions in 2011 and losing finalists four years ago, in Auxerre on Thursday.

After playing Japan, France face Denmark in Strasbourg on Monday. Coach Corinne Diacre said the opponents were chosen because “they have styles similar” to Norway and South Korea, two of the teams France will face in their group. Nigeria are the fourth team in the pool.

Japan are in a group with England, Scotland and Argentina. France are ranked fourth in the world by FIFA. Japan are seventh. Japan “are a big team, which is one of the best in women’s football,” said striker Eugenie Le Sommer.

“It will be a difficult match but it will allow us to take on the best to prepare ourselves for the World Cup.” The Lyon star, who has scored 73 goals in 157 international appearances, missed France’s last match, a 1-0 loss to second-ranked Germany in March.

On her return, Le Sommer will face long-time Lyon team-mate Saki Kumagai, a defender who has won a century of caps. Japan were surprise winners of the 2011 World Cup.

“It was a miracle,” that team’s captain Aya Miyama told the FIFA website on Monday. Japan then took silver at the 2012 London Olympics and reached the World Cup final again in 2015 to confirm their place among the elite.

“World Cups are never easy,” Miyama said. “But this team has more confidence in themselves, and I think they have a really good chance to win.”

Nations must name a provisional squad of up to 50 players by April 26. That must be winnowed down to 23 at a later date that has not yet been fixed. France kick off the competition against South Korea on June 7 in Paris.

Sabres vs Senators

Sabres vs Senators : The Ottawa Senators will have a new face in net against the Buffalo Sabres on Thursday. Joey Daccord will make his NHL debut. The Buffalo Sabres will try to win their first road game since Jan. 29 when they play the Ottawa Senators at Canadian Tire Centre on Tuesday. The Ottawa Senators (26-43-6) play the Buffalo Sabres (31-35-9) in Ottawa on Tuesday. These two teams will play for the first time since April. The Sabres and Senators aren’t in the playoff chase but they are in the of the next team at the bottom of the standings, the Los Angeles Kings.

The Ottawa Senators look for another win after splitting their last 12 games. The Ottawa Senators are averaging three goals per game and are scoring on 20.4 percent of their power play opportunities. Brady Tkachuk leads Ottawa with 21 goals, Thomas Chabot has 40 assists and Chris Tierney has 112 shots on goal. Defensively, the Ottawa Senators are allowing 3.6 goals per game and are killing 79.3 percent of their opponents power plays. Craig Anderson has given up 160 goals on 1,669 shots faced and Marcus Hogberg has allowed 14 goals on 121 shots. The Ottawa Senators have allowed three or less goals in eight of their last 12 games.

The team recalled Senyshyn — along with Trent Frederic — from Providence on an emergency basis on Wednesday. Considering Frederic has skated 13 games at the NHL level this season, it’s the call-up of Senyshyn that should interest fans the most over the team’s final two regular-season games.

The 22-year-old forward was selected with the 15th overall pick in 2015 — after the Bruins selected Jakub Zboril at No. 13 and Jake DeBrusk at No. 14. Senyshyn spent the next two seasons in the OHL before joining the AHL Providence Bruins for the 2017 postseason. He’s since spent two seasons with Providence, posting 26-24-50 totals in 128 games at the AHL level.

Head coach Bruce Cassidy confirmed that Senyshyn will be making his NHL debut on Thursday night.

On Tuesday, the Bruins clinched home-ice advantage for their upcoming first-round playoff series against the Toronto Maple Leafs. Cassidy will rest Chris Wagner and may decide to give some rest to some of his regulars over the final two games. Thus, the opportunity has presented itself to Senyshyn.

The only issue Senyshyn foresees on the eve of his potential NHL debut is that it will be tough to get a good night’s sleep.

“It definitely was a little tough last night, and I assume it’ll be a little tough tonight,” he said. “But those are good nerves, and good excitement. I’m really happy to be here.”

Of those three first-round picks from 2015, DeBrusk has obviously found success at the NHL level, as he’s scored 27 goals this year after a 16-27-32 rookie showing in 70 games last year. Zboril has played just two NHL games while spending the past two seasons with Providence.

Senyshyn scored a pair of goals — both in the same game — over three preseason games for the Bruins this past September.

The Bruins close out their regular season at Minnesota on Thursday night and at home against the Lightning on Saturday afternoon.

Wagner is slated to rest his lower-body injury Thursday, which could allow him to return to action for the team’s regular-season finale Saturday against the Lightning. In Wagner’s absence, Zach Senyshyn is set to make his NHL debut against Minnesota.

Players to watch: After tallying nine points in 34 games with Boston, Donato has 16 points in 20 games since the Wild acquired him on Feb. 20. He leads NHL rookies in scoring since Feb. 21. Coyle has two goals and four assists in 19 games since the trade.

Numbers: Wild G Devan Dubnyk tops all NHL goalies with 67 games played this season, tying his career high set in 2015-16. Boston F Brad Marchand earned his 100th point of the season with a goal and an assist in Tuesday’s 6-2 victory at Columbus.

Injuries: Wild F Mikko Koivu (knee surgery) and D Matt Dumba (torn pectoral muscle) are out. Bruins F Chris Wagner (lower-body injury), F Sean Kuraly (broken hand) and D John Moore (upper-body injury) are out; F Danton Heinen (illness) is day-to-day.

The visitors have been more prolific on the road than at home this season and our tipster thinks they can contribute to the goal tally in Seville
Sevilla will look to keep their hopes of claiming a Champions League place alive when they take on Alaves at the Estadio Sanchez Pizjuan on Thursday evening.

Joaquin Caparros’ side were beaten 1-0 at home on Sunday by Valencia but remain in the hunt for fourth place.

Alaves for their part are enjoying one of their best ever seasons and they too are unlikely contenders for a Champions League berth sitting in fifth place.bet365 customers in the UK can watch and bet live on this fixture. Your account must be funded or active (have placed a bet in the last 24 hours) to enjoy the action.

Team news
The hosts have plenty of injury concerns with striker Andre Silva and goalkpeer Tomas Vaclik both major doubts for the game.

Also missing are Pablo Sarabia, Gabriel Mercado, Max Wober and Sergio Escudero all of whom could well have started. Ever Banega is also suspended, adding to Sevilla’s significant absentee list.

Alaves have everyone available apart from injured centre-back Maripan and suspended captain Manu Garcia.

Preview
The visitors have won as many games on the road as they have at home, while their scoring record is actually better away from the Estadio Mendizorroza.

Aberlado’s side have scored 17 times away from their compact, atmospheric home compared to just 14 times in front of their own fans, with the Basques netting in 10 of their 15 away games.Sevilla have looked defensively vulnerable, with the side keeping just two clean sheets in their last 13 league games.

Tips and predictions
Alaves are offered at 4/7 (1.57) to score at the Estadio Sanchez Pizjuan where Sevilla have kept just five clean sheets this term. Both teams to score meanwhile is priced at an attractive looking 4/5 (1.80) and that looks to be the best selection for this clash.

Jets vs Avalanche

Jets vs Avalanche Live : The Avalanche hold a four point lead over the Coyotes for the second and final Wildcard spot in the West. It’s an easy scenario, a win against the Jets Thursday night gives them that playoff spot. Meanwhile, the Jets are in a fight for the Central division title with the Predators and Blues in the mix. This will be game five of the regular season for these two teams. Earlier in the year, the Jets took two straight from the Avs, outscoring them 12-6. However, in the most recent pair of games, the Avalanche have dominated the Jets winning both games and outscoring them 11-2. Three out of the four games played have gone over the posted number.

The home team in this series is an impressive 20-6 in the last 26 games, and that goes hand and hand with the Jets recent woes at the Pepsi Center. They are 0-5 in the last five games played in the Rocky Mountain state. The Jets were looking for a stop-gap Tuesday night in the second game of a back-to-back, but didn’t get it from young goaltender Eric Comrie. Comrie was on emergency recall when he draw the assignment against the Wild, and came up flat, allowing five goals on 28 shots, including three in the first period in a 5-1 loss.

Comrie wasn’t the only bad news the Jets received that night as forward Brandon Tanev was slashed on the hand by Eric Staal and left the game with an injury. The team did not have an update at press time. Of note, Blake Wheeler chipped in with an assist to give him 70 on the season along with 90 points on the year. Wheeler is just one point behind a personal career high of 91 for the season.

The Avalanche have picked a good time to catch fire in the Central division. In the middle of the season there was some talk that this team could be a lottery team, selecting a player in the first five selections. But things have changed. The Avs are an impressive 7-1-2 in their last 10 games coming off a 6-2 against the Oilers on Tuesday night. In that game, Nathan MacKinnon scored his 40th of the season, joining Joe Sakic (three times) and Milan Hejduk (two times) as the only Avalanche players to hit that mark. Also, 13 different players registered a point in that win against Edmonton.

Maybe the team’s best story of this run has been goaltender Philipp Grubauer. Since March 17, Grubauer is 6-0-2 in eight starts and has allowed only 13 goals against for a save percentage of .954. The team acquired the puck stopper from the Capitals in the off season and started off the season slow, but it’s a different story now.
All the Avalanche needs to make the Stanley Cup Playoff for the second consecutive year is earn one point in its final two games. That’s it. A win or overtime loss to the Jets on Thursday or at the Sharks on Saturday night, and the Avs are in.

Colorado’s fate rests in its own hands. Life only gets more complicated if the Avs find a way to snap their nine-game points streak and finish the season on a skid. If the Avs aren’t able to at least reach overtime in its remaining two games — a possibility given both opponents are playoff teams — then the Coyotes could poach the Western Conference’s last wild-card spot.

If Colorado (88 points) loses its remaining two games and the Coyotes (84 points) win both of their remaining games in regulation or overtime (not in a shootout), then Arizona would take the final wild-card spot. This is because despite being tied in points, the Coyotes would have 36 ROW (regulation plus overtime wins) to the Avs’ 35. Arizona plays at Vegas on Thursday and hosts Winnipeg on Saturday.

If Colorado loses its remaining two games and the Coyotes win both of their remaining games and one of those games is won via shootout, Arizona would take the final playoff spot. The teams would be tied in points and ROW in this scenario, but the Coyotes would win the tiebreaker because they had more points (three to the Avs’ two) in the two most recent head-to-head games.
If Colorado loses its remaining two games and the Coyotes win both of their remaining games, but both of those games are won via shootout, the Avs would take the final playoff spot. The teams would be tied in points but have the advantage in ROW.
If Arizona loses a game, Colorado takes the final wild-card spot.

Red Sox vs Athletics

Red Sox vs Athletics Live : The Boston Red Sox and Oakland Athletics meet Wednesday in MLB action at Oakland Coliseum. Reigning World Series champions Boston Red Sox, led by outfielder Mookie Betts, face the Oakland Athletics, led by Khris Davis, on Tuesday, Get a summary of the Boston Red Sox vs. Oakland Athletics baseball game

The Boston Red Sox will turn to Nathan Eovaldi in hopes of stopping their four-game losing streak Wednesday against the Oakland Athletics. Boston has yet to score a run over the first two contests of the four-game series, falling to the A’s 7-0 and 1-0.

Eovaldi is looking to bounce back from six-run, three-homer outing against the Seattle Mariners. Oakland will counter with Marco Estrada.
The Red Sox finally received a strong starting pitching performance. Chris Sale lowered the rotation’s ERA from 11.14 to 9.00.

But Boston still dropped to 1-5 because the offense failed to score for the second straight game against the Athletics. The Sox lost 1-0 here at Oakland Coliseum.

“Honestly, after tonight, I feel better. I feel better,” Red Sox manager Alex Cora said, surprisingly. “Because it was a game. 1-0. We had a chance. We competed. It’s not that we weren’t competing but most of the games we were out of it right away. And we were right there with them.”

Red Sox hitters are slashing .230/.293/.373/.666. The opposition is batting .313 against the starting pitchers. It’s been a completely unexpected start to the 2019 season after the club won 108 games and a World Series title one year ago (and has returned almost the same roster).

“The score was 1-0. We lost. I know what the record is, but honestly I can go home and I can get some sleep,” Cora said.

Boston went 0-for-7 with runners in scoring position and left seven men on base. There was obvious frustration. Jackie Bradley Jr. slammed his bat to the dirt after striking out with Christian Vazquez at third base to end the seventh.

“There was a lot of slamming bats and helmets,” Cora said. “That’s part of it. … They have a good pitching staff. They’re throwing the ball well. You don’t want to see that. But obviously we haven’t been in this situation in a year and a few weeks, whatever. It’s what baseball players do.”

Cora also was pleased with the way his bullpen performed. He said Brandon Workman and Ryan Brasier, who pitched scoreless innings, threw the ball well.

Xander Bogaerts thrown out in ninth: Boston Red Sox star says, ‘We haven’t been swinging it the way we normally do. The chances were better if I had reached third’

Boston Red Sox’s Xander Bogaerts tried to extend a 400-foot double off the top of the wall in right-center field into a triple with one out in the ninth but center fielder Ramón Laureano threw him out.

“It’s only the first two series of the season. Yeah, of course we want to play better. We want to win ballgames. But honestly, with the effort today, and the game that was played, I’m OK. We’ll come back tomorrow, try to save the series. Win tomorrow, try to win the next one and move on.”

Xander Bogaerts’ 400-foot double almost left the ballpark with one out in the ninth. Instead it hit high off the wall and Ramón Laureano threw out Bogaerts who tried to extend his double into a triple.

“Right now nothing’s going our way,” Cora said. “That ball should be out. It doesn’t go out. He should be at third and he makes a great throw. So you tip your hat to him.”

Xander Bogaerts will sit for Thursday’s tilt after fouling a ball off his shin in the ninth inning of Tuesday’s loss. The absence of Bogaerts means Brock Holt start at short. Blake Swihart will be behind the plate, giving Christian Vazquez the night off.
Red Sox vs. Athletics lineups: David Price makes season debut for Boston originally appeared on nbcsportsboston.com

The Boston Red Sox are hoping David Price can get the team back on track after a disappointing 1-3 record to begin the season against the Seattle Mariners.

Boston opens its second series of the season Monday night versus the Oakland Athletics at Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum, where Price will make his season debut.

Red Sox starters have given up 22 earned runs, eight home runs and haven’t pitched past the fifth inning so far this year.

Price is coming off a strong 2018 season during which he went 16-7 with a 3.58 ERA, 177 strikeouts and 50 walks over 176 innings. He shined in the playoffs, too, and won the clinching Game 5 of the 2018 World Series against the Los Angeles Dodgers.

The Athletics will send Aaron Brooks to the mound. He did not pitch in Oakland’s first six games.

Andrew Benintendi returns to the Red Sox lineup after missing Sunday’s loss in Seattle. He will bat second and play left field.

Quique Setien takes his side to the city of San Sebastian on Thursday as their quest for a Europa League place continues and we are opposing goals
Two sides chasing a European spot meet at the Estadio Anoeta on Thursday evening as Real Sociedad host Real Betis.

Neither team is in particularly inspiring form heading into the business end of the season, with Betis having won just two of their last seven matches and La Real winning two of their last 11.

Latest odds
Imanol Alguacil’s men have managed just four victories from the 14 matches they have played in front of their own fans this season. The Basques are priced at 23/20 (2.15) with William Hill to claim three points, while Betis can be backed at 12/5 (3.40) to claim their sixth away win of the season.The draw meanwhile is available at 12/5 (3.40) and four of the last five meetings in all competitions between these two sides have ended as stalemates.

Team news
The visitors have concerns over both first-choice wing-backs with Francis Guerrero almost certainly out, and Junior Firpo only just returning to training after missing the last eight games.

La Real are missing influential midfielder Asier Illarramendi, while Adnan Januzaj is also a doubt. Mikel Merino will come back into the side for the hosts in midfield having been suspended for the weekend draw at Valladolid.

Preview
Real Betis are fractionally behind leaders Barcelona in terms of average percentage possesion per game, yet when it comes to goals scored 10 sides have netted more than Los Verdiblancos.

On the road Quique Setien’s side have managed just 14 strikes in as many games, and they were fortunate to score from a deflected shot on Sunday at struggling Rayo Vallecano.La Real have failed to score in six of their last 12 home league matches and neither of these sides have seen a host of high-scoring games this term. Betis’ matches have seen on average 2.41 goals, with Sociedad’s at 2.34 and opposing goals when two out-of-form sides meet makes sense.

Tips and predictions
Under 2.5 goals is priced at 4/6 (1.66) which gives an indication that a low-scoring game is expected.

Combining this selection with both teams to score ‘no’, essentially meaning one team must keep a clean sheet offers more appealing odds of 11/10 (2.10).

This bet has paid out in three of the last four competitive meetings between these teams and looks attractively priced once more.When does Real Sociedad vs Real Betis kick off? Thursday 4th April, 2019 – 20:30 (UK)

Liverpool’s 2-1 win over Tottenham was the highlight of the weekend but also a big match in terms of the standings. The Reds move to the top spot, at least momentarily, while Tottenham’s loss gave way for London rivals Arsenal to jump them for the third spot overall. Manchester United also continue in the top four race as Ole Gunnar Solskjær was named the permanent manager.Atletico Madrid Manager Diego Simeone said this week that they will fight till their last breath for the league despite it looking like the title has already been won by FC Barcelona. Atletico will have an opportunity, at least, to try to back that claim as the top two sides face off this coming weekend.This year’s Bundesliga title will likely be decided this weekend when Dortmund and Bayern Munich face off in Der Klassiker. Dortmund helped their chances by winning this past Saturday but they will still have to fend off the defending champs as only two points separate the two most winning teams in Germany.The Houston Dynamo are one of a handful of undefeated MLS teams through week five of the 2019 season. This past week stood out for the high margin of goals including LAFC’s 5-0 win at San Jose Earthquakes, Sporting KC’s 7-1 home win over Montreal Impact and the Dynamo’s own 4-1 win away at Colorado Rapids. LAFC’s Carlos Vela and D.C. United’s Wayne Rooney both scored spectacular goals while LA Galaxy picked up three points thanks to Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who returned to action after being out injured.

Bruins vs Wild Live : The Boston Bruins vs the Minnesota Wild 4-0 meet on Tuesday night.The Boston Bruins look to improve their road record as they head into Minnesota to take on a disappointed Wild side who is officially eliminated .The Bruins and Wild are meeting for the 23rd time in history, with the Bruins having an 8-13-0-1 record, including a 3-8-0 mark at TD Garden. ”

Bruins fans will finally get a glimpse of 2015 first-round pick Zach Senyshyn.The team recalled Senyshyn — along with Trent Frederic — from Providence on an emergency basis on Wednesday. Considering Frederic has skated 13 games at the NHL level this season, it’s the call-up of Senyshyn that should interest fans the most over the team’s final two regular-season games.

The 22-year-old forward was selected with the 15th overall pick in 2015 — after the Bruins selected Jakub Zboril at No. 13 and Jake DeBrusk at No. 14. Senyshyn spent the next two seasons in the OHL before joining the AHL Providence Bruins for the 2017 postseason. He’s since spent two seasons with Providence, posting 26-24-50 totals in 128 games at the AHL level.

Head coach Bruce Cassidy confirmed that Senyshyn will be making his NHL debut on Thursday night.On Tuesday, the Bruins clinched home-ice advantage for their upcoming first-round playoff series against the Toronto Maple Leafs. Cassidy will rest Chris Wagner and may decide to give some rest to some of his regulars over the final two games. Thus, the opportunity has presented itself to Senyshyn.

Wagner is slated to rest his lower-body injury Thursday, which could allow him to return to action for the team’s regular-season finale Saturday against the Lightning. In Wagner’s absence, Zach Senyshyn is set to make his NHL debut against Minnesota.The Columbus Blue Jackets fell into a tie for the second wild card into the Stanley Cup Playoffs from the Eastern Conference, losing 6-2 to the Boston Bruins at Nationwide Arena on Tuesday.

The Blue Jackets (45-31-4) and the Montreal Canadiens trail the Carolina Hurricanes by one point for the first wild card. Each of the three has two games remaining. Columbus has more regulation/overtime wins than Montreal (44 to 41).

The Blue Jackets would have clinched a playoff berth with a win and a regulation loss by the Canadiens, who defeated the Tampa Bay Lightning 4-2.
“We’ve got another opportunity next game,” Columbus captain Nick Foligno said. “Obviously disappointing but we cannot worry about this one. It’s in the past now.”

The Bruins (48-23-9) clinched second place in the Atlantic Division. They will play the third-place Maple Leafs, who lost 4-1 to the Hurricanes, in the Eastern Conference First Round and have home-ice advantage in the series.

“That’s what we’ve been battling for all year,” Boston forward Brad Marchand said. “It will be good to have home ice.”Marchand had a goal and an assist to become the 10th player in Bruins history with a 100-point season (36 goals, 64 assists). It is the most points by a Boston player since Joe Thornton had 101 in 2002-03.

“It’s a cool personal stat, but it all goes toward the same goal to get to the playoffs and we’re right there,” Marchand said.Jake DeBrusk had two goals and an assist, and Tuukka Rask made 32 saves for Boston, which led 5-0 early in the third period.”They were playing for a purpose,” Blue Jackets coach John Tortorella said. “They were playing for something. They played better than we did.”

Columbus had outscored opponents 24-4 during a five-game winning streak.Blue Jackets goalie Sergei Bobrovsky was pulled at 16:00 of the second period after allowing four goals on 23 shots. Joonas Korpisalo allowed two goals on five shots.

DeBrusk made it 1-0 at 1:58 of the first period when his deflection of a David Krejci pass went high over the goal, bounced off the top of the net and went off Bobrovsky’s back and in.”Just some puck luck, I’m not sure,” DeBrusk said.

Marcus Johansson made it 2-0 at 17:27 of the first, scoring on a rebound after Bobrovsky made a left pad save on a shot from the slot by Charlie Coyle.

The Tampa Bay Lightning clinched the Presidents’ Trophy in mid-March and will have home-ice advantage throughout the playoffs. Which team the Lightning will host in the first round, however, remains to be determined.

If the playoffs started today, the Lightning would host the Columbus Blue Jackets, who own a tiebreaker over the Montreal Canadiens. The Blue Jackets dropped into the second wild-card spot on Tuesday when the Boston Bruins snapped their five-game win streak in a 6-2 rout.

The Canadiens have put together back-to-back wins since falling to the Blue Jackets last Thursday. Montreal must finish the regular season with more points than Columbus to clinch a playoff spot since the Blue Jackets own the non-shootout wins tiebreaker with 44 to the Canadiens’ 41. Both teams are currently one point back of the Carolina Hurricanes, who have 42 regulation/overtime wins this season.

In what would likely be a worst-case scenario for the Lightning, Tampa Bay could still end up hosting the Pittsburgh Penguins, who sit currently third in the Metropolitan with 97 points.

All four of the Lightning’s potential opponents are off Wednesday and the race for the final spots will continue Thursday. Of the group, only Montreal will play their final two games against teams currently in playoff positions – the Washington Capitals and Toronto Maple Leafs.

Predators vs Canucks

Predators vs Canucks Live : The Nashville Predators look to retake top spot in the Central division as they welcome the Vancouver Canucks to the Music City on Thursday night.Unlike many playoff-bound NHL teams at this time of year, the Nashville Predators still have plenty to play for.Nashville is locked in a three-way battle for first place in the Central Division and home-ice advantage in the opening round of the postseason.

The Canucks play out the string of their regular season before a lengthy offseason as they will fall short of the playoffs, but they have to be happy with the way things went for them this season as they exceeded expectations and have a very bright future. The Canucks take on a Preds side on Thursday though that has picked up steam a little bit since they hit a speed bump a couple of weeks ago and with a 6-3-1 mark in their last 10 games they could very well jump back into top spot in the division with a win here. Vancouver is 4-1 in their last 5 games following a win and are 5-2 in their last 7 games against the Western Conference but like most teams they have struggled to win in Nashville and are just 1-4 in their last 5 meetings to Bridgestone Arena.

The Predators meanwhile have beaten up on the league’s also rans this season and are 6-1 in their last 7 games against a team with a losing record and are a heavy favorite to extend that trend here tonight. The Predators made some moves at the trade deadline and while they are going to the playoffs once again this season they have their sights set on home ice advantage and with a strong couple of games to finish off the season and some help they could very well take the Central division crown and avoid a first round matchup with the Winnipeg Jets. Nashville is 23-14-1 at home this season and the crowd at Bridgestone Arena is always exciting to watch and they will play a factor in this one as well.

The Canucks have the Under in 4 straight games against Central division foes and in 21 of their last 29 overall while the Preds are 4-1 in their last 5 against the Pacific and have hit the Over in 6 straight meetings against Vancouver. This one has the feeling of a shootout as the Preds need a win badly while the Canucks are in a nothing to lose mentality which usually results in a lot of chances as this one goes over.Markus Granlund scored with 6:21 remaining, and the Vancouver Canucks rallied for a 4-2 win against the San Jose Sharks at Rogers Arena on Tuesday.

Tanner Pearson scored twice for Vancouver (35-35-10), including the game-tying goal with 8:42 left in the third period.”To be down a goal going into the third period and come back and take the victory was a big positive,” Pearson said. “Especially playing these playoff teams, teams that are saddling up to go to the playoffs, they’re playing their best hockey, or want to anyway. If we can withstand that and beat some teams, it could carry some momentum into next year.”
Thatcher Demko made 33 saves for the Canucks, who have won three straight games but were eliminated from Stanley Cup Playoff contention last Friday.”He was dialed in,” Vancouver coach Travis Green said of Demko. “It might have been his best game.”Joe Pavelski scored in his return after missing seven games because of a lower-body injury for San Jose (44-27-9), which has one win in its past 10 games (1-8-1).

“It was nice to give me a little confidence,” Pavelski said. “But at the end of the day, it’s not how you feel; it’s about the wins, and we have a little way to go.”
The Sharks clinched second place in the Pacific Division and will have home-ice advantage in the Western Conference First Round against the Vegas Golden Knights. San Jose has two games left in the regular season to build some positive momentum for the playoffs.

“We’ve got two kind of practice shots at this again and then the real season starts, so hopefully we can put it together and then get ready for Vegas,” Sharks center Joe Thornton said. “But I think we can get out of this, no problem.”

Thornton had two assists to tie Steve Yzerman (1,063) for eighth place on the NHL all-time list in his 1,564th game, which tied Nicklas Lidstrom for 12th all-time.”That’s the reason I wear No. 19,” Thornton said of tying Yzerman. “It’s pretty cool.”Martin Jones made 19 saves for San Jose, which has allowed 43 goals in its past 10 games.

“It’s been a little bit of everything,” Jones said. “We’ve had some tough bounces, probably too much stuff off the rush. We need to work for each other coming back into our own end and be able to trust we are going to be there for each other, and then we need some more saves.”Pearson scored on the Canucks’ first shot 1:28 into the game after a backhand pass from Bo Horvat below the goal line into the slot for a 1-0 lead.
