Bet Jamaica Daily Sports Roundup: March 14

by Dirty on March 14, 2010

Today in the Daily Sports Roundup: The Formula One season gets underway, while the Cavaliers play host to the Celtics, and college hoops finalizes its field.

Tipping off on the hardwood . . .

The NBA has eight games on tap for Sunday, with Indiana at Milwaukee, Utah at Oklahoma City, Philadelphia at Miami, Charlotte at Orlando, New Orleans at Phoenix, Toronto at Portland, Minnesota at Sacramento, and Boston at Cleveland. The Cavaliers blasted the Celtics 108-88 in Boston in their last meeting on February 25, winning the OVER result as a 3-point road favorite. LeBron James was good for 36 points, seven boards, and nine assists for Cleveland in that win, while Mo Williams tossed in 19 points. Ray Allen was good for 21 points in that losing cause for Boston, with Rajon Rondo scoring 19 points.

As well, conference tournaments come to an end on Sunday in advance of the NCAA Tournament’s Selection Show. There are four tourney championships on the schedule for Sunday, including the ACC title game in Greensboro, the Atlantic 10 title game in Atlantic City, and the SEC title game in Nashville – those three matchups all get underway at 1:00pm ET. The Big Ten then concludes championship week with its title game in Indianapolis – that one tips off at 3:30pm ET. The Selection Committee will then announce this year’s Field of 65.

Taking a trip around the rink . . .

There are 10 games on the NHL’s schedule for Sunday, including a possible Stanley Cup final preview in Chicago with the Blackhawks playing host to the Capitals. As well, it’s Nashville at Los Angeles, Colorado at Dallas, Phoenix at Atlanta, Pittsburgh at Tampa Bay, Toronto at the Islanders, San Jose at Anaheim, St. Louis at Minnesota, Calgary at Vancouver, and Philadelphia at the Rangers. The Flyers blanked the Rangers 2-0 in Philadelphia the last time the two teams met January 21, with now-injured Philly netminder Ray Emery making 24 saves for the shutout. James van Riemsdyk and Mike Richards had the goals.

Roaring around the track . . .

Finally, Formula One begins its 2010 season on Sunday with the Bahrain Grand Prix. Ferrari’s Fernando Alonso is the 11/4 sportsbook favorite to take the checkered flag on Sunday, followed by Lewis Hamilton at 7/2, Sebastian Vettel at 5/1, and both Felipe Massa and the un-retired Michael Schumacher at 7/1. Defending champion Jenson Button is farther back at 12/1 to get the race victory.
