The Spotlight On Today’s Sports- 4/25/2015

After a day off to prepare for my trip to Orlando, Florida flying out of New York… I am back looking at our top three highlights in the world of sports for today, Saturday April 25th, 2015. I’m updating live from Laguardia Airport, here we go! 

1) New York, New York- Last night the New York Mets’ impressive 11 game game winning streak came to an abrupt end when the New York Yankees defeated the Mets 6-1 at Yankee Stadium. Today the Mets look to answer back when their Superstar Pitcher, Matt Harvey takes the mound! It will be interesting to see how to Mets respond to the loss and if they can push the series to a decisive game tomorrow night for bragging rights of New York!

2) One More For The Coliseum- Today the New York Islanders & Washington Capitals will be playing game six live from the Nassau Veteran’s Memorial Coliseum. This is the final year in which the Isles will be playing at the Coliseum & with the Isles down 3-2 in their best of seven series, this could be their final game ever at Nassau Coliseum. The New York Rangers await the winner of this series. 

3) Sweep City?- On the Basketball side of things today, two teams will be looking to avoid getting swept, both the New Orleans Pelicans & the Milwaukee Bucks. The good news for both teams is that they’re both home, the bad news is that they both may just be delaying the inevitable as no team in NBA history has come back from a 3-0 deficit. 

That’s going to do it for me but I hope everyone enjoys a big sports weekend. Be sure to check out my Spotlight Sports Pick Of The Day as I’m already 3-1!

The Spotlight Sports Pick of the Day


Spotlight Sports Pick Of The Day: Chicago Bulls (-3) 

One of my favorite plays is game 3 of the NBA Playoffs when the better seed goes up 2-0.  Oddsmakers have no choice but to make that team a much lower favorite because they’re now the away team. Truth is though if a team is a better team than they’ll find a way to win even on the road. I went with the Bulls because I think they’re so well coached that I don’t see them getting caught on the road… 3 points is also a gift so take it and run. 

Record (2-1)
