The Playoff Test: Stars Measure Strength Against Betting Favorite Pittsburgh

The Dallas Stars will have to find a way to pick up a few extra wins heading into the final stretch of the season, and they'll get their first true opportunity to do so on Wednesday against the Pittsburgh Penguins. After missing out on the postseason the past few years, they'll look to add to their 2012 NHL odds any way they can.

Although, sure, the Pens sit just sixth in the Eastern Conference, there's no denying their legitimacy as a Stanley Cup futures contender. Even without Sidney Crosby the depth and experience of the team puts them as a threat on the NHL betting line.

With 10/1 odds of winning the Stanley Cup according to Bovada's oddsmakers - the fifth highest such mark in the NHL - they've proven that reputation matters.

That will be a hard fact to shake when Jamie Benn and Loui Eriksson look to launch the Stars into the playoffs for the first time since 2008. Dallas has increased their season point totals in each of the last three years but fell just short in 2011 with 95 points.

Is a return to the postseason in the cards? They do have 60/1 odds on the NHL futures line. Fans and bettors alike will get a better idea of what to expect out of Dallas after the Wednesday clash with slightly-favored Pittsburgh.

HORIZON LEAGUE CBB CONFERENCE TOURNAMENT PREVIEW 2012

The Horizon League Men's College Basketball Tournament is set and will begin on Tuesday February 28. Valparaiso finished with a 21-10 overall record and a 14-4 record in the Conference to finish 1st in the regular season. Cleveland State earned the 2nd seed and a bye into the semi-finals. The Horizon League tournament is a little different from other tournaments as the Top 2 seeds advance automatically into the semi-finals.

Detroit, Wisconsin-Milwaukee and Butler all tied for 3rd with 11-7 conference records with Detroit getting the #3 seed due to a 3-1 record against Wisconsin-Milwaukee and Butler. Wisconsin-Milwaukee will grab the #4 seed and Butler sits in the #5 seed which is their worst seeding since 2005.

Youngstown State and Wisconsin Green Bay finished at 10-8 in the conference and will be seeded #6 and #7 respectively and will meet in the 1st round on Tuesday. This is the first time in the 33 year history of the Horizon Conference that seven teams have finished with 10 wins or more in conference play.

Here is a view of the upcoming tournament schedule:

2012 Horizon League Men's Basketball Championship: First Round - Tuesday, Feb. 28 (campus sites) Game 1: (10) Loyola at (3) Detroit, 7 p.m. ET Game 2: (7) Green Bay at (6) Youngstown State, 7:05 p.m. ET Game 3: (9) UIC at (4) Milwaukee, 8 p.m. ET Game 4: (8) Wright State at (5) Butler, 7 p.m. ET

Second Round - Friday, March 2 (Valparaiso) Game 5: Game 1 winner vs. Game 2 winner, 6 p.m. ET (Horizon League Network | ESPN3) Game 6: Game 3 winner vs. Game 4 winner, 8:30 p.m. ET (Horizon League Network | ESPN3)

Semifinals - Saturday, March 3 (Valparaiso) Game 7: Game 5 winner vs. (2) Cleveland State, 6 p.m. ET (ESPNU - tape delayed at 10:30 p.m. ET; live on ESPN3) Game 8: Game 6 winner at (1) Valparaiso, 8:30 p.m. ET (ESPNU)

Championship - Tuesday, March 6 (highest remaining seed) Game 9: Game 7 winner vs. Game 8 winner

Let's take a look at the Rocketman Power Ratings for the Horizon League. My ratings differ from the seedings so we'll look to take advantage of some soft lines here.

  1. Cleveland State 78.32
  2. Butler 77.45
  3. Valparaiso 75.93
  4. Detroit 75.53
  5. Youngstown State 74.52
  6. Wisconsin Milwaukee 74
  7. Wisconsin Green Bay 73.64
  8. Wright State 69.49
  9. Loyola Chicago 67.65
  10. Illinois Chicago 63.41

I have felt like Cleveland State was the Top team in the Horizon League all year and they finished on Top in my ratings. Butler has had an off year compared to what they normally do but this is still a very dangerous team come tournament time. Valparaiso should make some noise especially with them playing on their home court and having to only win 2 games at home to advance to the Big Dance.

Sixers in the Spotlight as NBA Betting Resumes

Nobody knows exactly what's been going on with the Philadelphia 76ers this season, but it's worked. Not only are they first in a half-decent Atlantic Division, they've hung with the Eastern Conference's best all year long. Now the success has started to translate over to the NBA betting line.

The biggest stars hit the hardwood.

Bet on the NBA at Bovada.

Have the first few months of the season been a legitimate demonstration of what the Sixers bring to the table? Though they squeezed into the playoffs last spring, the success they've enjoyed over the course of the 2011-12 campaign is something new.

This Tuesday, as players flock back to work after the All-Star Break, the Sixers will travel to Michigan for a run-in with the unpredictable Detroit Pistons. With 30/1 odds of winning the NBA championship - compared to Detroit's 500/1 mark - Philadelphia is the obvious favorite heading into the game, but that?s what makes the matchup so intriguing.

Not only is Detroit hard to gauge - they've beaten Orlando once and Boston twice, yet continue to sit in the basement - but the jury is still out on Philadelphia as a contender.

Though their record has pushed them to the top of their division, NBA odds makers and fans alike are reluctant to buy in to a club whose leading scorer averages just over 15 points per game.

Think you know how the future will unfold? Are the 76ers legit? Bet on the NBA with Bovada today.

NASCAR Spring Cup Series 54th Annual Daytona 500 Preview

The drivers of the Sprint Cup Series will compete in their first race of the season on Sunday, February 26 at the Daytona 500 at Daytona International Speedway.

Trevor Bayne was the surprise winner of the Daytona 500 last season, while David Ragan took the checkered flag in the Coke Zero 400 at Daytona last July. Neither driver had previously picked up a Sprint Cup victory at the track.

Jamie McMurray and Kevin Harvick visited Victory Lane at Daytona during the 2010 season, with Matt Kenseth and defending series champion Tony Stewart earning wins there in 2009. Stewart has three career Daytona wins, and McMurray and Harvick have two each.

Jeff Gordon has taken the checkered flag six times at Daytona International Speedway in his Cup career, most recently in 2005, while Dale Earnhardt Jr. has won at the track twice.

Jimmie Johnson, Kyle Busch, Ryan Newman, Greg Biffle, and Jeff Burton each have one career Cup win at Daytona on their driving resumes.

After racing at Daytona the drivers of the Sprint Cup Series will move on to Phoenix International Raceway for the Subway Fresh Fit 500 on March 4. The rest of March's schedule includes events at Las Vegas, Bristol, and Fontana.
