Monday, March 31st Anaheim – Disappointment. When the Seattle Mariners face the LA Angels in their season openers tonight, both teams will be trying to shake off the disappointment surrounding their 2013 seasons.
The Angels will be shaking a little harder, as they dove in the deep-end of the disappointment pool last season.
When the Halos took the field for their season opener a year ago, expectations were as high as their payroll. The chatter in the sports betting forums that night not only had them beating the Reds to start it all, but going on to have a deep playoff run (think parade, speeches, confetti). They went 1-for-2, as opening night produced a win, but it was a long painful slide down from there.
March Madness tips off today with a slew of games, including the Oregon Ducks vs. BYU Cougars.
Online sportsbook odds have the Ducks as a 5-point favorite for this 3:10 pm (ET) tipoff to be played at the BMO Harris Bradley Center in Milwaukee.
Oregon comes into the tournament on a nice run, going on a bit of a tear down the stretch to grab an at-large bid. Their guard play is what paces this team and it’s what will get them a win and cover today. They should be able to take advantage of the huge loss BYU suffered when Kyle Collingsworth went down with a blown knee.
