- The Toronto Maple Leafs are -205 home favorites over the Montreal Canadiens in Game 7 of their Stanley Cup North Division semifinal on Monday, May 31st
- The Leafs are 0-7 straight up in their last seven close-out games of a playoff series
- Montreal is 5-1 SU in its last six Game 7 scenarios
A couple of games ago, the Toronto Maple Leafs looked to be home and cooled out in their playoff series against the Montreal Canadiens. Suddenly, they find themselves yet again facing a win-or-go-home scenario and with it, the ghosts of playoff failures past.
Toronto’s back-to-back overtime losses to the Habs are bringing both teams back to Scotiabank Centre for Game 7 of this Stanley North Division semifinal series on Monday. It’s also bringing up Toronto’s disturbing lack of success in closing out postseason series.
Still, even though the Leafs are 0-4 straight up in their last four win-or-go-home playoff games, oddsmakers are setting Toronto as solid -205 home favorites to beat the Canadiens and move on to face the Winnipeg Jets in the North Division final.

|Montreal Canadiens||+175||+1.5 (-150)||O 5.5 (+114)|

Odds as of May 30th
Game time Monday is 7pm ET at the Scotiabank Centre. The broadcast is being carried by CNBC.
Depending on which team’s playoff history you peruse, Game 7 is either a lucky number or a nightmare digit. Including last season’s Game 5 loss to Columbus in a best-of-five series, the Leafs are 0-7 in their last seven series closeout games.
Toronto’s most recent Game 7 win came in the club’s last playoff series triumph – a 4-1 victory over the Ottawa Senators in the opening round of the 2004 postseason. Interestingly, that was also the last Game 7 to feature two Canadian NHL teams prior to this one.
Montreal, on the other hand, thrives in the pressure-packed environment of Game 7. The Habs have won five of the past six Game 7s.
Head-to-head, it’s advantage Toronto. Though these teams have met in 16 playoff series, this is just the second Game 7. The Leafs won Game 7 of the 1964 semifinals at the Montreal Forum by a 3-1 count.
Leafs’ Big Guns Firing Blanks
Toronto’s young guns of Auston Matthews and Mitch Marner need to work on their target practice. They’ve combined for one goal by Matthews on 49 shots during the series.

In Indiana, the construction timeline for a new on line casino prepared for the city of Terre Haute could be threatened following state officers set off acceptance of funding for the $125 million challenge positioned just 7 miles from the Illinois condition line.
Chief Working Officer for Difficult Rock Global (HRI), Jon Lucas reportedly on Tuesday instructed the Indiana Gaming Commission that the globally identified firm has agreed to build and control the on line casino underneath its Rocksino brand name, a action the regulatory human body sought right before supplying consideration to the casino’s yearly license renewal and approval of a finance strategy this thirty day period.
Earlier this month, HRI, which is owned by the Seminole Tribe of Florida, and the new casino’s possession team, Lucy Luck Gaming, formerly regarded as Spectacle Jack LLC, signed a administration agreement for the prepared Terre Haute Rocksino to be located on the city’s east facet, about 165 miles south of the lately opened Really hard Rock Casino Northern Indiana. HRI is operator and part-operator of the new $300 million Gary on line casino in conjunction with The Hoosier State’s to start with land-based on line casino operator, Spectacle Enjoyment.
Lucas reportedly explained to the IGC that the groundbreaking will most likely take put in late June or early July and will open up in late summer time or fall of 2022. But ahead of that can take place, the IGC will nevertheless need to approve financing for the casino and renew the owner’s license, which is held by Lucky Luck Gaming after beforehand becoming assigned to a person of the two on line casino gaming boats on Lake Michigan in Gary comprising Majestic Star Casino, in advance of closing completely on April 18, 2021.
Another hold off:
Having said that, associates of the Gaming Fee reportedly voted to postpone consideration of the project’s funding right up until they meet up coming on June 24. In accordance to a report from AP Information, the regulatory system is awaiting economical information from some Lucy Luck Gaming companions right before renewing the casino’s license.
This is not the initial hold off the venture has confronted right after in late January 2020 point out officials put off a February 7th listening to to approve granting a casino license for Terre Haute to the group led by longtime Indiana gaming executive and developer Rod Radcliff and Greg Gibson, a Terre Haute native and now vice chairman of Spectacle Enjoyment, which was at the time guardian company to Spectacle Jack LLC.

Postponement of the license arrived after the IGC realized aspects of a federal investigation into illicit campaign contributions that reportedly associated customers of Spectacle’s management group.

Down the stretch we come at the Giro d’Italia. Egan Bernal continues to lead, but showed weakness on Wednesday. Can Simon Yates seize the opportunity? There are more mountains on Friday and Saturday. Based on the odds should we consider Joao Almeida, Hugh Carthy or Bauke Mollema to win Stage 19?
- Stage 19 of the Giro d’Italia (Friday, May 27) has serious climbing at the end
- Last year the race turned on this second-to-last day in the mountains
- Will Egan Bernal put the Giro away, or was Wednesday’s ride a sign of chaos to come?
By the last few days of Grand Tours, the public usually has a pretty good feel for what the final outcome will look like. Recently, everyone has been deceived.
In last year’s Tour de France, Tadej Pogačar shockingly came from what seemed to be an enormous deficit to beat Primož Roglič. The race flipped during a mountain time trial on Stage 20. The 2020 Giro saw Wilco Kelderman crack in the mountains on the 19th stage. He went from the strong favorite to a third-place finish.
Egan Bernal is in control of the Giro entering Friday’s test in the mountains near the Swiss border. He looked untouchable until losing time Wednesday on the final climb. Will he reassert himself, hold on, or get passed?
Bernal is the reasonable favorite to win the pink jersey, but Simon Yates, who bested Bernal on Wednesday, is the mild favorite (+350) to take Stage 19 when things get going (6:20 ET) on Friday. There is no doubt Yates and Damiano Caruso need to challenge the leader now. Let’s look at the updated odds and consider where to place a wager.
Stage 19 Giro d’Italia Odds
|Rider||Odds to Win Stage||Top-3 Finish Odds at DraftKings|
|Daniel Felipe Martinez||+3300||+800|
Odds as of May 27th.
Bernal needs to survive three more stages to add a Giro title to his Tour de France triumph. He must navigate one large mountain climb on Friday, three serious uphills on Saturday, and Sunday’s individual time trial.
The 166 kilometres path from Abbiategrasso to Alpe di Mera on Friday had to be re-routed after an incident last weekend. The race is bypassing the Mottarone climb, where 14 people perished in a cable car accident on Sunday.
About halfway through the course riders will encounter a Category 4 climb. A little past the three-quarter mark of the day a Category 3 challenge presents itself. At the very end of the stage riders will tackle the Alpe di Mera, a nearly 10km task with an average gradient of 9%. The final three kilometres are at a unwavering 10.5%. The finish line is uphill.
It was unclear whether Thursday’s Stage 18 would end in a bunch sprint or if a breakaway could control the day. At this point the speedsters just don’t have the legs to keep up with those who bolt to the front at the start. Alberto Bettiol was a part of the break, and subsequently soloed to victory.
With a difficult day in the rear view mirror, and two tough afternoons coming up, there wasn’t a lot of activity among the GC on Thursday. Bernal remains 2:21 ahead of Caruso. Yates is in third place, 3:23 back of Bernal. Everybody else is at least six minutes behind.
London Irish vs Gloucester Rugby Picks and Odds
What have you done for me lately? Yates beat Bernal on the most recent mountain test, the first time Bernal has looked vulnerable. Yates needs to make his move, while just keeping up will do the trick for Bernal. Rightly or wrongly oddsmakers favor Yates, though that doesn’t mean he can pick up enough ground to take over or even seriously threaten the pink jersey.
Now let’s be clear, there is a reason Bernal built his substantial lead. In addition to being the best by a wide margin for most of the race thus far, Bernal has won a pair of stages.
While Bernal is a virtual lock for the podium, and Yates is extremely well positioned, Joao Almeida enters Friday 8:45 behind Bernal, and more than five minutes back of Yates. Though anything is possible, Almeida has to be thinking he can win one of the two remaining days in the mountains and salvage a solid race.
Almeida led the Giro for 15 stages last year. There is some thought that his team, Deceuninck-QuickStep, made a poor decision in 2021. They built their roster and support around Remco Evenepoel. The youngster is very talented, but inexperienced and coming off of a major injury. Given his chance to let loose, Almeida gained over a minute on Bernal Wednesday.
Hugh Carthy is currently in fifth place. At the age of 26, he has really come into his own. This is his fourth Giro, and he has improved his overall position each time. Carthy finished third at last year’s Vuelta a España.
Nicknamed “Huge,” Carthy has the ability to rise to the occasion. This year he finished third at the Classic Sud-Ardèche, and in the Top 10 at the Tour of the Alps, and Volta a Catalunya.
Bauke Mollema is nearly 75 minutes behind Bernal, and it is by design. For the first time in ages he opted out of being a GC contender, and to focus on winning a stage of the Giro, and getting ready for the Olympics.
So far Mollema has failed to reach the line first. He has another opportunity on Friday. Six times he has finished in the Top 10 at a Grand Tour, including a podium position at the Vuelta a España in 2011.

In the southern Australian condition of Victoria and the royal fee investigating the license suitability of casino operator Crown Resorts Minimal has reportedly heard damning evidence concerning the firm’s stance on allegations of money laundering.
In accordance to a report from News Corp Australia, the Melbourne-headquartered business was denied a on line casino license for its new Crown Sydney house in February after an official probe commissioned by the New South Wales Independent Liquor and Gaming Authority determined that it may have been complicit in a slew of money laundering offenses tied to its use of international junket firms. The supply in depth that this prompted the govt for the neighboring point out of Victoria to initiate an analogous assessment looking into the operator’s license for the large Crown Melbourne advancement.
This Victorian royal commission was yesterday reportedly explained to that Crown Resorts Confined sat on a recommendation to look into its personal bank accounts for incidents of suspected income laundering at the 1,604-room Crown Melbourne for additional than a year.

News Corp Australia documented that Initialism principal Neil Jeans advised the royal fee that these kinds of strategies could have authorized prison things to go substantial quantities of income as a result of the gaming floor at Crown Melbourne without the need of breaching the individual $7,730 disclosure threshold demanded by the federal government’s Australian Transaction Studies and Analysis Centre (AusTRAC) monetary intelligence agency.
Denims reportedly advised investigators…
“I imagine the data in this issue obviously implies ‘structuring’ since there are a number of transactions under the threshold that are distribute above a series of branches of the Australia and New Zealand Banking Group Limited around a limited period of time of time. Just about every of those people transactions appears to be trying to prevent the threshold of ‘structuring’.”
To make matters worse and Denims reportedly explained to investigators that Crown Resorts Constrained only firmly acted on his firm’s suggestions previous yr after coming under scrutiny in New South Wales. The royal fee purportedly moreover heard how all of this had been preceded in December of 2019 by the on line casino agency closing its accounts with Southbank Investments and Riverbank Investments, which were being then being led by quite a few of its senior executives which includes Barry Felstead and Rowen Craigie.
Ultimately, Denims reportedly disclosed that his agency experienced also uncovered a number of situations of suspected ‘cuckoo smurfing’, which experienced included the hiding of suspicious transactions inside the legitimate dealings of harmless prospects. He purportedly proclaimed that this experienced represented an ‘uncommon’ way to procedure resources and that he was uncertain as to the complete extent of the suspected fraud due to the fact his business experienced only been permitted to take a look at a trio of Australian financial institution accounts.
News Corp Australia noted that the Victorian royal fee is remaining led by former Federal Court Judge Ray Finkelstein (pictured) and is thanks to publish its best findings in advance of an August 1 deadline. The probe could in the long run advise that Crown Resorts Constrained be stripped of its casino license for the Crown Melbourne facility, which recorded altered revenues for the twelve to the end of June of about $1.14 billion to assist its guardian post a web financial gain after tax of roughly $124.8 million.
