Sunday Funday with Four Game 7s

Bucks/Celtics, Mavericks/Suns – Who Advances?
After a day of rest in the NBA Playoffs, we’ve got two decisive Game 7s on the board for Sunday. Bucks/Celtics tips off at 3:30 p.m. ET on ABC and Mavericks/Suns goes live at 8 p.m. ET on TNT. The home team has won every game in the Western Conference series, while the Bucks and Celtics have alternated wins over the first six games.

If those patterns hold, then the Celtics and Suns will move on. If not, then it means we had at least one upset on Sunday.

NHL Drama in Penguins/Rangers and Stars/Flames
We’ve got two Game 7s on the ice as well, as the home teams are both favored to survive and advance in their first-round matchups. It isn’t surprising that the Penguins and Rangers are here, but it is very surprising that the Stars and Flames are here, given how much Calgary has dictated the flow of the series. If Jake Oettinger can steal one more game, one of the West’s top teams will be bounced.

NFL Schedule Analysis & Previews

The NFL never seems to take a day off, does it? There is always something to talk about with the king of sports and this week was no different with all 272 regular season games announced. The schedule could end up having a massive impact on a team’s record, but also on how to bet a team. Case in point, the reigning Super Bowl champion Los Angeles Rams have the hardest schedule in the league and the order of the games didn’t help. Similarly, the Kansas City Chiefs have a grueling gauntlet early in the season that could affect AFC West betting percentages in the futures market.

We’ve got plenty of coverage on the NFL offseason:
