Miami Marlins vs Chicago Cubs :

The Chicago Cubs lost a heartbreaker Friday night in 17 innings, as the offense managed to score just one run and put together eight hits. The Cubs pitching staff more than held its own and gave the team chance after chance, but the bats were dead and weren’t coming alive as the game lasted over five hours. The Cubs have scored just one run in their last 19 innings, which isn’t something most expected heading into this series. Overall, Kris Bryant leads the Cubs with four hits and one RBI, while Willson Contreras and Addison Russell have combined for four hits and one RBI. The Chicago Cubs Yu Darvish gets the ball, and he was 10-12 with a 3.86 ERA and 209 strikeouts last season. Darvish is 1-1 with a 7.11 ERA and 15 strikeouts in his career against the Marlins.

The Miami Marlins got a much needed feel good victory, as there’s nothing worse than killing your bullpen, playing five hours and losing. A Miguel Rojas single up the middle got the fish their first victory of the season and Derek Jeter’s first win as an owner. Overall, Lewis Brinson and Brian Andersn have combined for eight hits and two RBI while Derek Dietrich has three hits and one walk. The Miami Marlins have been competitive in their first two games, and it’s going to be interesting to see if they can continue to play with such a positive attitude, as this hasn’t looked like a team that’s supposed to lose 100-plus games. Odrisamer Despaigne gets the ball, and he was 2-3 with a 4.01 ERA and 31 strikeouts last season. This will be Despaigne’s second career game against the Cubs.

The Cubs are 7-2 in their last 9 vs. National League East, 7-3 in their last 10 during game 3 of a series and 19-9 in their last 28 games on grass. The Marlins are 5-1 in their last 6 Saturday games, 6-2 in their last 8 home games and 2-6 in their last 8 during game 3 of a series. The Cubs are 8-3 in the last 11 meetings.

Odrisamer Despaigne likely isn’t going to start for Miami after pitching a little in the marathon, and it’s going to be interesting to see how these teams handle things after blowing through their bullpens. The Marlins have no starter worth a damn if we’re being honest. Not easy to play right after playing 17 innings. Regardless, the Cubs have Darvish on the mound, a guy who wasn’t good in the postseason but was plenty good in the regular season and has the stuff to quiet a Miami lineup that needs to put together two or three hits to score. I don’t like laying heavy juice, so I’ll take the RL to add value to this bet.

The Charlotte Hornets have pretty much nothing to play for at this point and are on the end of a back to back after getting beat up by the Washington Wizards. You guys know I haven’t been high on the Hornets at all this season, as it’s Kemba or bust for this team. I’ll gladly take the better team still playing for seeding and the small chalk.

The Philadelphia Flyers look for a statement victory after splitting their last 10 games. The Philadelphia Flyers are averaging three goals per game and are scoring on 20 percent of their power play opportunities. Sean Couturier leads Philadelphia with 31 goals, Jakub Voracek has 66 assists and Claude Giroux has 181 shots on goal.

The Boston Bruins have been money on the road all season long and have owned the Flyers as far as you can go back, but they’re on the end of a back to back, and this is an extremely early game. I usually like to side with the home team with start times this soon, as it’s a lot easier to get out of your own bed and what not for games like this. It also feels like a statement game for the Flyers, as they’ve been hit or miss down the stretch and need a confidence boosting win heading into the playoffs. Give me the Flyers on their home ice.

The San Jose Sharks look to keep the puck rolling after winning eight of their last 10 games. The San Jose Sharks are averaging three goals per game and are scoring on 20.5 percent of their power play opportunities. Logan Couture leads San Jose with 32 goals, Brent Burns has 52 assists and Joe Pavelski has 213 shots on goal.

Aaron Dell has given up 67 goals on 771 shots faced and Martin Jones has allowed 132 goals on 1,595 shots. The San Jose Sharks have allowed three or more goals in seven of their last 10 games.

The Vegas Golden Knights look for another big victory after splitting their last 10 games. The Vegas Golden Knights are averaging 3.3 goals per game and are scoring on 22.2 percent of their power play opportunities. William Karlsson leads Vegas with 40 goals, David Perron has 50 assists and Jonathan Marchessault has 257 shots on goal. Defensively, the Vegas Golden Knights are allowing 2.7 goals per game and are killing 81.6 percent of their opponents power plays.

The Sharks are 7-1 in their last 8 Saturday games, 9-2 in their last 11 vs. Western Conference and 8-2 in their last 10 overall. The Golden Knights are 8-2 in their last 10 Saturday games, 27-11 in their last 38 home games and 31-15 in their last 46 vs. Western Conference. The under is 4-1 in Golden Knights last 5 home games and the over is 8-2 in Sharks last 10 overall.

Usually I blindly back the Vegas Golden Knights, and it’s paid off and more, even though the prices aren’t nearly as good as they were earlier in the season. And Vegas should be the favorite with the way it plays at home. However, this line is a bit nuts based on the fact the Golden Knights are in a good spot in terms of the postseason and are fresh off a tough overtime game last night. The San Jose Sharks are rested and one of the hottest teams in the league that’s had no problem winning on the road. We’re getting plus money with the Sharks. Follow the value. Give me San Jose.

A couple of the least-penalized teams in the National Hockey League, the St. Louis Blues and the Vegas Golden Knights collide at T-Mobile Arena in a Western Conference matchup. Fox Sports Midwest will air the action, which gets underway at 10:30 p.m. ET on Friday, March 30.

The Blues have been one of the hottest teams in the league over the last two weeks as they are 8-2 in their last 10 contests and have won six in a row overall which has them right in the thick of things in the wild card hunt and they could very well unseat the Wild for third in the Central division. St. Louis has had an up and down season but they are peaking at the right moment and could very well make some noise as they are very stingy in the defensive zone, have some very talented pieces in the offensive zone, and a goaltending tandem in Jake Allen and Carter Hutton who have stepped up to keep St. Louis’ playoff hopes intact. St. Louis is 5-1 in their last six against the West but will have their work cut out for them against the Knights who have been one of the best home ice teams in the league this season.

The Golden Knights meanwhile have been the story of the league this season as they not only secured a playoff spot but could very well lock up top spot in the Western Conference with a strong finish to the season. The Golden Knights have defended home ice like nobody else this season and with a 9-1 stretch in their last 10 games against a team with a winning road record and are 26-11 in their last 37 games at home but the Blues are desperate and need to get a victory here to ensure they are still in the mix come playoff time. Jake Allen is expected to get the start in goal for the Blues as he will face off against three-time Cup champion Marc-Andre Fleury who is having an incredible season in the Vegas crease.

The Blues are 4-1 in their last five against a team with a winning record and have hit the under in 12 of their last 15 Friday games while the Knights are 1-4 in their last five Friday games and have hit the under in their last four home games. St. Louis and Vegas will go toe to toe here and it should come down to the wire which will keep this one under the total.

Defensively, the Los Angeles Kings are allowing 2.5 goals per game and are killing 84.9 percent of their opponents power plays. Jonathan Quick has given up 136 goals on 1,761 shots faced and Jack Campbell has allowed nine goals on 123 shots. The Los Angeles Kings have allowed three or less goals in each of their last eight games.

The Anaheim Ducks look for another victory after winning five of their last seven games. The Anaheim Ducks are averaging 2.8 goals per game and are scoring on 17.8 percent of their power play opportunities. Rickard Rakell leads Anaheim with 31 goals, Ryan Getzlaf has 46 assists and Corey Perry has 156 shots on goal. Defensively, the Anaheim Ducks are allowing 2.6 goals per game and are killing 83.2 percent of their opponents power plays. John Gibson has given up 137 goals on 1,833 shots faced and Ryan Miller has allowed 47 goals on 634 shots. The Anaheim Ducks have allowed three or more goals in five of their last 10 games.

The Kings are 7-3 in their last 10 vs. Pacific. The Ducks are 6-1 in their last 7 home games, 33-16 in their last 49 games playing on 2 days rest and 5-2 in their last 7 overall. The Kings are 3-7 in the last 10 meetings in Anaheim, the home team is 5-2 in the last 7 meetings and the over is 7-2-3 in the last 12 meetings in Anaheim.

The Los Angeles Kings are coming off a tough game against the Arizona Coyotes and now play a rested Anaheim squad that’s caught fire at home and usually get the best of the Kings when playing at the Honda Center. The Kings also haven’t been as good on the road recently, as six of their last eight wins have come at home, and they’ve split their last 12 on the road. I’m siding with the rested Anaheim Ducks on their home ice.

Lightning vs Rangers

The Lighting lost a pivotal game in Boston last night to relinquish top spot in the Atlantic division but they get a chance at redemption on Friday as they face off against the New York Rangers who have had one of the more disappointing seasons in the league. Tampa Bay brings the league’s best offense into the Big Apple looking to send Henrik Lundqvist and company to yet another home loss and with the Bolts dominating the back end of their double headers of late and their 5-2 stretch in their last seven road games they will likely be big time favourites once we near close to puck drop. The Bolts are also 10-4 in their last 14 against the Eastern Conference and are 7-3 in their last 10 meetings against the Rangers who will look to snap out of a 3-13 stretch against Eastern Conference opponents.

The Rangers have been better on home ice of late as they are 5-1 in their last six games at Madison Square Garden but their effort against the Atlantic division this season has been a huge downfall as they are 1-7 in their last eight. The Rangers need to focus their energy in the defensive zone in this game as Tampa’s offense has been incredibly tough to slow down and with the over hitting in 11 of Tampa Bay’s last 13 contests and the team coming off a 4-2 loss last night in Boston you can be sure they will be out to make amends in this one.

The Lightning are 7-3 in their last 10 against a team with a losing record and are a modest 3-8 in their last 11 Friday games while the Blue Shirts are 1-5 in their last six overall and 4-9 in their last 13 games playing on one day’s rest. Tampa needs to win here to stay in the hunt for top spot in the division and after a sluggish effort yesterday I think they bounce back in a big way here.

Pelicans vs Cavaliers

We’re kind of late in the season for a pair of Western Conference matchups, but that’s what’s on the docket this weekend at The Q – beginning with Friday night’s visit from Anthony Davis and the Pelicans.

With just seven games to go in the regular season, the Wine & Gold (45-30) are trying to hold off the Sixers (44-30) and Pacers (45-31) for the 3rd seed in the East. The Pelicans (43-32) are in an even more precarious spot out West – where the 4th seed or missing the Playoffs altogether are both distinct realities.

The Cavaliers are coming off a three-game road trip, finishing at 2-1 after righting the ship on Wednesday night in Charlotte – going off for a season-high 42-point second quarter and holding the Hornets off by double-digits the rest of the way.

After rattling off four straight wins, the Pelicans have dropped their last two to a pair of the Conference’s top dogs – falling to the Rockets on Saturday night and Blazers on Tuesday.

Things won’t get easier for them on Friday night – coming to an arena where the Cavaliers have beaten them three straight times, holding them under 40 percent shooting while winning by an average of 10.0 points per.

The Cleveland Cavaliers are about to get their head coach back. But he won’t be coaching them right away. Instead, Tyronn Lue will observe Friday night when the Cavs take on the New Orleans Pelicans.

Lue would last reside on the sidelines during Cleveland’s March 17 win over the Chicago Bulls. But since, assistant Larry Drew has been filling in. In his absence, the Cavaliers are 5-1. Their only loss during this stretch came against the Miami Heat.

Right now Cleveland sits third out east with a 44-30 record. And yet, they are just a half-game up on 76ers and Pacers. But with Philadelphia losing Joel Embiid for an indefinite amount of time, their hopes of locking up the three-seed increase.

In the meantime, all that matters is Lue’s health. But it’s good to see that he’ll already be back in some capacity.
