Atlanta Dream, Minnesota Lynx Tip WNBA Finals

Neither the Minnesota Lynx nor the Atlanta Dream have ever won the WNBA Championship before. However, one will become the 15th champion in the history of this league next week when the two meet up for a best-of-five series in the 2011 WNBA Finals.

Atlanta learned a lot last season in the WNBA Finals, falling to the Seattle Shock in a 3-0 series sweep in its first appearance in the championship series. All three games were close, as they were all decided by three points or fewer, and the experience gained in that series could be enough to propel it past the Lynx this year.

The Dream ranked No. 2 in the league in scoring this year at 82.5 PPG, and that has held true in the playoffs as well. They are averaging 81.8 PPG in the postseason and have a 4-1 SU and 3-2 ATS mark to show for their work.

Angel McCoughtry was tied for the WNBA lead in scoring this year with Diana Taurasi at 21.6 PPG, and she continues to lead Atlanta here in the playoffs as well. She has put up 18.4 PPG in what has amounted to be a truly well-rounded scoring effort for the Dream.

Iziane Castro Marques, Lindsey Harding, Erika de Souza, Sancho Lyttle and Armintie Price have had fantastic postseasons as well. They are all averaging at least 9.8 PPG, and have been solid contributors for this squad.

Things are going to change this week though, as de Souza is going to be back with the squad after leaving the team for Brazilian national squad duties during the back end of the Eastern Conference Finals.

The Lynx have woken up and are starting to play like the team that dominated the WNBA this past year. They struggled mightily with the San Antonio Silver Stars in the first round of the playoffs, but a match with the Phoenix Mercury in the Western Conference Finals proved to be no issue.

The two-game sweep featured an aggregate 198-153 score in Minnesota's favor.

This is a team that is just stacked from top to bottom in its starting lineup. Seimone Augustus, Maya Moore, Lindsay Whalen and Taj McWilliams-Franklin are all WNBA stars, and it is no shock that these four are carrying the load again in the playoffs as well.

Augustus has been good for 20.4 PPG, while the three others mentioned are each putting up at least a dozen points per game.

Rebekkah Brunson is nearly averaging a double-double per night, accounting for 9.4 PPG and 12.2 RPG.

These two teams only played each other twice on the season, and they did so in back-to-back games in the middle of June. The Lynx won both efforts in convincing fashion, winning the first game 96-85 at home and the second 77-64 on the road.

Games 1 and 2 will be played at the Target Center. The first clash will be on Sunday at 8:00 p.m. (ET), while Game 2 is set for Wednesday at 8:30 p.m. (ET). Games 3 and 4 will be held at Phillips Arena on Friday and Sunday, and if there is a need for a Game 5, it will be back at the Target Center on Wednesday, October 12.

Game 1 can be seen nationally on ESPN, while the other four games are scheduled to be on ESPN2.

CFL Betting Notes - Week 14

September 27, 2011

The underdogs were out in full force last week in the CFL as not only did all four ‘dogs cover against the spread, they each won their game straight up as well. Montreal got the ball rolling last Friday as a one-point road underdog with a 34-21 victory over Edmonton. In the first of a Saturday double-header, British Columbia rolled over Saskatchewan 42-5 as a 1 ½-point road underdog. Toronto then shocked Winnipeg 25-24 as a three-point home underdog to pick-up just its third win of the year. Hamilton completed the sweep this past Sunday with a 55-36 rout of Calgary as a one-point home dog.
The following is brief preview of this week’s games along with the opening point spread and ‘over/under’ lines as provided by BetOnline.com.

Friday, September 30

Montreal Alouettes at Winnipeg Blue Bombers (OFF) Over/Under (OFF)

Montreal’s win last Friday moved it just one game back in the East Division with an overall record of 7-5 SU (6-6 ATS). It is 3-3 both SU and ATS on the road this season and the total has stayed ‘under’ in two of its last three games. Winnipeg is feeling the heat in the East at 8-4 SU (8-4 ATS) with losses in two of its last three games. It is 4-2 SU and ATS at home and the total has stayed ‘under’ in eight of its 12 games this year.

The Alouettes dropped a 25-23 decision to the Blue Bombers earlier in the season as 7 ½-point home favorites. They are 7-2 SU in the last nine meetings, but just 2-4 ATS in the last six. The total has stayed ‘under’ in the last two games. Both starting quarterbacks, Anthony Calvillo for Montreal and Buck Pierce for Winnipeg, are listed as questionable for Friday’s game so keep an eye on the lines as the week progresses.

Edmonton Eskimos at British Columbia Lions (-5 ½) Over/Under (48 ½)

Despite last week’s loss, Edmonton is still tied for first-place in the West Division with a 7-5 SU record (6-6 ATS). It is 4-2 SU and ATS on the road this year and the total has stayed ‘under’ in five of its last seven games. BC’s five-game winning streak has it just one-game back in the West as 6-6 SU (7-5 ATS). It is 2-3 SU and ATS at home and the total has stayed ‘under’ in its last seven games.

These two teams split their first two games this season with the Eskimos winning 33-17 as 2 ½-point home favorites in Week 3 and the Lions returning the favor with a 36-1 romp as 5 ½-point road underdogs. The total stayed ‘under’ in both games. BC and Edmonton are ranked one and two in the CFL in points allowed as both defenses are giving up less than23 points a game.

Saturday, October 1

Saskatchewan Roughriders at Calgary Stampeders (-6) Over/Under (55)

Saskatchewan has fallen two games back in the playoff chase in the West with an overall record of 4-8 SU (4-7 ATS). It is 2-3 SU and ATS on the road and the total has stayed ‘under’ in seven of its last nine games. Calgary is tied for the lead in the West at 7-5 SU (6-6 ATS), but is just 2-4 SU and ATS at home this season. The total has stayed ‘under’ in three of its last four games.

The Stampeders have already won the first two games of this season’s four game series both SU and ATS. They are now 4-2 SU and ATS in the last six meetings. The total has gone ‘over’ in four of the six games. Saskatchewan’s offense is averaging 22.3 points a game, while Calgary’s is averaging 24. Defensively, the Roughriders are giving up an average of 27.5 points a game and the Stampeders are giving up 26.4.

Hamilton Tiger-Cats (-3 ½) at Toronto Argonauts Over/Under (54)

Hamilton is two games back in the East at 6-6 SU (6-6 ATS). It is just 1-4 SU (2-3 ATS) on the road this year and the total has gone ‘over’ in eight of its last nine games. Toronto is still in the playoff hunt at 3-9 SU (5-7 ATS) but cannot afford any more losses in the division. It is 2-3 SU and ATS at home this season and the total has stayed ‘under’ in four of its last five games overall.

The Tiger-Cats have won five of the last six meetings SU including a 37-32 victory as 7 ½-point home favorites earlier this season. The total has stayed ‘under’ in seven of the last nine meetings. Both teams rank at the bottom of the league in points allowed this season as each is giving up over 28 points a game.

Canadian Bacon: CFL Week 14 odds and picks
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Montreal Alouettes at Winnipeg Blue Bombers (+6.5, 49.5)

The Winnipeg Blue Bombers are dealing with injuries at key positions. Quarterback Buck Pierce, who has been nursing a rib injury, will be out of this showdown for first place in the East, leaving the starting job to Alex Brink.

That could prove to be a fatal blow to any hope the Bombers had in winning their division. The hiring of journeyman Michael Bishop is a clear sign that all is not well in Swaggerville. Of course we must also mention the loss of both starting RB Fred Reid and Carl Volny for the remainder of the season, weakening considerably their offense. On defense, Winnipeg will be without DT Doug Brown.

The Alouettes had better news this week when it was announced that Anthony Calvillo didn’t suffer a concussion after the brutal hit he took last Friday in Edmonton. Wideout Kerry Watkins will be back in the lineup for Montreal, giving Calvillo another option to go deep. On defense, Montreal still has a number of injuries but the players who were promoted as starters - Seth Williams, Greg Laybourne, Jeff Hecht and Marc-O Brouillette - have no reason to be ashamed of their play so far.

Pick: Montreal


Edmonton Eskimos at B.C. Lions (-5.5, 49)

The Lions will be back at their newly-renovated B.C. Place after an 18-month exile and with more than 41,000 spectators on hand, it should be quite an explosive welcome.

B.C. has won five in a row and it’s no surprise that after a terrible 0-5 start that this club is seen as a heavy favorite to participate as West division representative in the 99th Grey Cup at B.C. Place.

Lions quarterback Travis Lulay is showing poise and confidence, appearing more and more like one of the best quarterbacks in the CFL. He’s developing some great chemistry with receivers Geroy Simon and Arland Bruce.

The Eskimos are much healthier than they were when they were hammered 36-1 by the Lions earlier this season, but while the score shouldn’t be that lopsided, the end result in the standings should be the same.

Also note that veteran kicker Paul McCallum, the dean of active players in the CFL, has hit 24 consecutive field goals. He only needs four more to tie the all-time record established by former Roughrider Dave Ridgeway.

Pick: B.C.

Saskatchewan Roughriders at Calgary Stampeders (-6, 55.5)

These teams need some major defensive help. The Roughriders gave up 42 points against the Lions last week while the Stamps were mauled for 55 points by the Tiger-Cats in the second Touchdown Atlantic Classic played in Moncton.

Saskatchewan’s lack of depth has been evident from the start of the 2011 season, but the collapse of the Stampeders over the last few weeks is stunning. Calgary gave up 142 points in its last four games, three of which turned out to be losses.

Coach John Hufnagel has announced that veteran running back Joffrey Reynolds will be a healthy scratch for the second straight game. Reynolds is having one of the worst seasons of his career with an average of only 4.8 yards per carry.

In front of their fans in Calgary, against a Riders team that can’t carry the “Miller effect” on forever, the Stampeders have a great opportunity to prove they can contend in the West.

But they must improve on their turnover ratio (minus-9) and penalties (1169 yards, the worst record in the CFL). The Riders will likely be without slotback Andy Fantuz (right ankle) and WR Dallas Baker (concussion).

Pick: Calgary


Hamilton Tiger Cats at Toronto Argonauts (+4, 54)

The Argos may have pitched an upset 25-24 win over the Winnipeg Blue Bombers but they have lots of work to do.

Their front seven had its best game of the season against Winnipeg with four sacks and 13 tackles. Ricky Foley, who was chosen Canadian Player of the Week, had six of those tackles plus a pair of sacks. It will take another stellar performance on defense if Toronto has any hope against Hamilton.

Meanwhile, the Tiger-Cats are coming back from the Maritimes with renewed confidence after a huge win against the Stampeders. The bottom line is that Hamilton has a much better team with much more speed than the Argos.

The secondary remains suspect at best but the acquisition of DB Milt Collins from Calgary should fill a big hole. Collins will replace Ryan Hinds at safety against the Argos. The Tiger-Cats have only managed six interceptions in 12 games and are dead last in the league with four turnovers.

Pick: Hamilton

Pick: Calgary


Hamilton Tiger Cats at Toronto Argonauts (+4, 54)

The Argos may have pitched an upset 25-24 win over the Winnipeg Blue Bombers but they have lots of work to do.

Their front seven had its best game of the season against Winnipeg with four sacks and 13 tackles. Ricky Foley, who was chosen Canadian Player of the Week, had six of those tackles plus a pair of sacks. It will take another stellar performance on defense if Toronto has any hope against Hamilton.

Meanwhile, the Tiger-Cats are coming back from the Maritimes with renewed confidence after a huge win against the Stampeders. The bottom line is that Hamilton has a much better team with much more speed than the Argos.

The secondary remains suspect at best but the acquisition of DB Milt Collins from Calgary should fill a big hole. Collins will replace Ryan Hinds at safety against the Argos. The Tiger-Cats have only managed six interceptions in 12 games and are dead last in the league with four turnovers.

Pick: Hamilton
