Tipping off on the hardwood...

Two games are on tonight’s NBA playoff schedule: Dallas meets San Antonio in Game 2 of their Western Conference first-round series, while Orlando tips off with Charlotte in the second game of their Eastern Conference first-round set. The Mavs won the series opener 100-94 on Sunday, as they covered as 4-point favorites against the Spurs. Dirk Nowitzki had 36 points and seven rebounds for Dallas, which improved to 4-1 SU and ATS this season against San Antonio. The Mavericks are 3.5-point chalk for tonight’s game, with the total set at 194.5 points.

Meeting up on the diamond...

Action in the National League includes San Francisco at San Diego, Los Angeles at Cincinnati, Chicago at New York, St. Louis at Arizona, and Philadelphia at Atlanta. Roy Halladay (3-0, 1.12 ERA) takes the ball for the Phillies in their matchup with the Braves, who send Tim Hudson (1-0, 2.84 ERA) to the hill at Turner Field tonight. Atlanta should have its hands full with Halladay, one of the best pitchers in the game for the better part of the last decade. Brought to Philadelphia from Toronto in an offseason trade, Halladay has 21 strikeouts and only two walks in 24 innings pitched this season.

Over in the American League, tonight’s schedule features Texas at Boston, Tampa Bay at Chicago, Detroit at Los Angeles, New York at Oakland, and Baltimore at Seattle. It’ll be a battle of ace pitchers at Safeco Field between the Orioles and Mariners, with Baltimore’s Kevin Millwood (0-2, 2.89 ERA) matching up with Felix Hernandez (1-0, 3.10 ERA) for Seattle. Both righthanders have started the season well, even if Millwood remains winless with his new team. Millwood allowed three runs over six innings in the Orioles’ 4-2 loss at Oakland last Friday, and it wasn’t enough for Baltimore to cash as +140 underdogs.

Taking a trip around the rink...

The NHL playoffs continue with three games tonight: Buffalo at Boston, Washington at Montreal, and Vancouver at Los Angeles. The Sabres, Canadiens, and Canucks are all looking to avoid going down 3-1 in their respective best-of-seven first-round series, and it’s Montreal that has the toughest task.

The Habs were no match for the Caps in Monday night’s Game 3 at the Bell Centre, as Washington rolled to a 5-1 victory as -185 favorites. Montreal needs a better performance from goaltender Jaroslav Halak, who was pulled after giving up three unanswered goals in the second period in Game 2. Carey Price came on in relief of Halak, and promptly allowed a marker to Alex Ovechkin to put the game out of reach for the Canadiens.
