One Game to Watch 6/8/15

One game to watch on 6/8/15:
USA vs Australia (Women's World Cup Soccer, Firat Stage, Group D) 7:30e

Let's make it interesting:
Spread +2
Over/Under 3 goals 
First half spread +1

Why you should watch:
Turn your patriotism up to 11 and break out the stars and stripes for Team USA's first match of the 2015 Women's World Cup. The Americans are favored to advance out of their group and should carve up a susceptible Australian side.

My bets: USA - 2, Over, USA -1 first half (2-1 on 6/4)

Pick 3 games:

1. USA vs Australia 7:30e

2. Tampa Bay Lightning @ Chicago Blackhawks (NHL) 8:00e

3. St Louis Cardinals @ Colorado Rockies (MLB) 8:40e

Continuous Viewing Lineup:

7:30e USA vs Australia

One Game to Watch on 6/4

One game to watch on 6/4/15:
Cleveland Cavaliers @ Golden State Warriors (NBA Finals, Game 1) 9:00e

Let's make it interesting:
Spread -5.5
Over/Under 204 points
Tristan Thompson Over/Under 2.5 Made Free Throws

Why you should watch:
The wait is over! NBA playoffs return tonight on the West coast. Will LeBron bring a championship to Cleveland? Will Steph Currey add to his trophy case? The storylines surrounding this Finals are as numerous as flops in an NBA season. This is the one game to watch on 6/4!

My bets: Golden State -5.5, Over, Over (1-2 on 6/3)

Pick 3 games:

1. Cavaliers @ Warriors 9:00e

2. Chicago Cubs @ Washington Nationals (MLB) 7:05e

3. New York Mets @ Arizona Diamondbacks (MLB) 9:40e

Continuous Viewing Lineup:

One Game to Watch 6/3/15

One game to watch on 6/3/15:
Chicago Blackhawks @ Tampa Bay Lightning (NHL Stanley Cup Finals, Game 1) 8:00e

Let's make it interesting:
Over/Under 5 goals
Total 1st period goals over/under 1.5

Why you should watch:
With no real marquee matchup in the 16 baseball games today, it again falls to the NHL to be the game of the night. The Chicago Blackhawks and Tampa Bay Lightning kick off the Stanley Cup Finals tonight in Tampa. These teams have very similar styles and feature speed and tempo, which should make for some exciting games over the next couple weeks.

My bets: Blackhawks, Over, Over (0-3 on 6/1)

Pick 3 games:

1. Blackhawks @ Lightning 8:00e

2. DC United @ Chicago Fire (MLS) 7:00e

3. Philadelphia Union @ Columbus Crew SC (MLS) 7:00e

Continuous Viewing Lineup:

FBS Master Schedule Grid

I have completed a full schedule grid for the major conferences for the 2015 College football season. Feel free to use the spreadsheet as you see fit. The main goal here was to create a master schedule grid for those who need it.

If you think of any improvements or create new content from it, I only ask that you make what you can available to as many people as possible.

Thanks to @alangweaver for the help with this.

One Game to Watch 6/1/15

One game to watch on 6/1/15:
New York Yankees @ Seattle Mariners (MLB) 10:10e

Let's make it interesting:
Run Line
Over/Under 6 runs

Why you should watch:
Showdown between Michael Pineda and Felix Hernandez in one of the late slots tonight. Both pitchers have been great this season and with a total sitting at 6, viewers should expect a low scoring duel.

My bets: Mariners -1.5, Under 6 runs, Mariners (2-1 on 5/28)

Pick 3 games:

1. Yankees @ Mariners 10:10e

2. NY Mets @ San Diego Padres (MLB) 10:10e

3. Baltimore Orioles @ Houston Astros (MLB) 8:10e

Continuous Viewing Lineup:

8:05e Orioles @ Astros 8:10e (First 7 innings)

10:10e Yankees @ Mariners
