MLB investigates On-Field Scuffle Between Reds' Tommy Pham, Giants' Joc Pederson Over Fantasy Football Dispute - Tommy Pham slapped Joc Pederson "Will Smith-style" during Reds batting practice on Friday, according to multiple sources. The Reds scratched Pham shortly before the game started at 8:48 after a rain delay.  Pederson speaks about the incident below.  The argument was over their fantasy football league...from last season

From CBS Sports:

Now, as Pederson explained above the dispute from his standpoint stemmed from waiver-wire/IR activity -- nefarious waiver-wire activity in Pham's view but standard behavior in keeping with the rules according to Pederson. (This is why you should only play with your most trustworthy of friends.) Of course, there are two sides to every story, and at this writing we have only one of them. Maybe there's a possibility that this is actually over money, as in perhaps Pham won money via the league or side bets and Pederson never paid up? In which case, the anger -- but obviously not the slap -- are perfectly defensible.

Floyd Mayweather vs Don Moore exhibition fight OFF as UAE announce three-day suspension of work following death of President Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan.  Mayweather was set to pick up an eight-figure cheque for sharing the ring with his old sparring partner on Saturday night in Dubai.  Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan has died aged 73 and, as a result, the country will stop to mourn. It is currently unclear if the event will be postponed and rescheduled or cancelled for good.  Very few, if any, books were intending to offer odds on this exhibition bout.

  • 'It's a Pretty Big Fall': How Everything Changed for Phil Mickelson in Just One Year - On Monday, ESPN profiled the dramatic downfall of Phil Mickelson, who has opted to drop out of this week's PGA Championship.

    The reason: Mickelson is taking time away from golf after his controversial comments about the PGA Tour and the Saudi Arabian financiers of a breakaway circuit were published by author Alan Shipnuck, whose unauthorized biography of the golfer popularly known as "Lefty" will be released next week.

    "We have just been informed that Phil Mickelson has withdrawn from the PGA Championship," the statement said. "Phil is the defending champion and currently eligible to be a PGA Life Member and we would have welcomed him to participate. We wish Phil and [wife] Amy the very best and look forward to his return to golf."

    The six-time major winner was also reported to have lost $40 million gambling in four years.

One of the bigger betting events of the day will be the PA Republican Primary.   Democrats are now a -130 favorite to win the Senate in Pennsylvania come November due to concerns over who the Republican candidate will be.  While the current Lieutenant Governor, John Fetterman, is viewed as a relatively strong candidate for the Democrats, he suffered a minor stroke over the weekend.

Closing polls in the state had a practical three-way tie between the GOP candidates.  The celebrity surgeon Mehmet Oz held a narrow lead in Pennsylvania’s GOP Senate primary, according to a new Emerson College poll. 

Conservative commentator Kathy Barnette has enjoyed a late surge.

Max Homa (66-1) and Will Zalatoris (33-1) got off to fast starts at this year's PGA Championship.

Rory McIlroy (14-1) was third on the leaderboard as he found the sand off the tee on the 16th, a 527-yard par four.

Tiger Woods (66-1) and Jordan Spieth (18-1) both pulled their balls up just shy of the bunker.

Woods would present the second biggest liability to sportsbooks, though some have him the largest.  He sat among the top 10 early Thursday.

Heat vs. Celtics Eastern Conference Finals Game 3 Betting - Boston comes into this game as a -6 point home favorite with the series tied 1-1.  Note that Miami comes into this one with a few question marks.

Heat forward P.J. Tucker left Game 2 with a left knee bruise. He had an MRI Friday before boarding the team plane to Boston and is questionable for Game 2 with irritation in the knee.

Point guard Kyle Lowry's is also questionable with a right hamstring strain. He's missed eight of the last 10 games and hasn't played since Game 4 of Miami's second-round series with Philadelphia. Gabe Vincent is questionable with a left hamstring strain.

The Celtics defeated the Heat 127-102 in the last meeting. Jayson Tatum led the Celtics with 27 points, and Jimmy Butler led the Heat with 29 points.

The Celtics have gone 33-19 against Eastern Conference opponents. Boston is second in the Eastern Conference with 35.5 defensive rebounds per game led by Tatum averaging 6.9.

The Heat are 35-17 against Eastern Conference opponents. Miami ranks second in the Eastern Conference with 25.5 assists per game led by Kyle Lowry averaging 7.5.

EPL and Serie A Titles to Be Decided Today - Championship races in the Premier League and Serie A will be decided on Sunday, as soccer's top tier conclude their seasons.

In the EPL, Manchester City clinches the title with a victory over Aston Villa, but a loss or tie opens the door for Liverpool.  There is an 87% implied probability the Sky Blues will get the job done.

Over in the Serie A league, AC Milan is in the driver's seat entering its game at Sassuolo. But archrival Inter Milan is still alive and hosts Sampdoria at noon.

AC is a -215 favorite, which implies a 68.3% probability of them walking away with the championship. Inter is massive -750 chalk against Sampdoria.

Heat vs. Celetics Game 4 Eastern Conference Finals - Jayson Tatum (stinger) and Marcus Smart (sprained ankle) were both out for Boston in Game 3 of this series.  Center Robert Williams III sat out Game 3.  All odds courtesy of our friends at BetOnline.

Tyler Herro out for Miami in Game 4 and Jimmy Buckets will be a GTD. Still, pretty balanced spread action with the C’s laying a fairly large number in this matchup.

 

Heat at Celtics (-7, 205.5)

57.9% on C’s -7

77.7% on C’s ML -332

63.6% on OVER

 

Panthers at Lightning (-118, 6)

Avs at Blues (+141, 6.5)

Miami won 109-103 despite star Jimmy Butler sitting out the second half with swelling in his right knee. Tyler Herro also didn't play the final eight minutes of the fourth quarter because of a groin injury.  The Heat lead the series 2-1.

As expected, Celtics coach Ime Udoka said the trainer's table was busy on Saturday.

"Marcus has some swelling in his ankle. Took a pretty bad sprain. Finished the game, but he's gonna feel it a little more today," Udoka said.

"Getting worked on and getting treatment. See how he feels tomorrow. Jayson is fine. It's a stinger that went away pretty quickly. And the Rob has improved. Feels better than he did yesterday. … It's day to day. We'll test it out tomorrow and see how he feels."

Attempts to Legalize Sports Betting in Minnesota Fail - Despite biparisan support, a measure to legalize sports wagering in the state of Minnesota has failed.  The Minnesota House of Representatives and Senate have different views of sports betting and the next attempt won't be until 2023. The Senate Finance Committee approved an amended sports betting bill last week to legalize retail and online sports betting for Minnesota tribes and two state racetracks. The House bill would not allow racetracks to offer sports betting and this is what ultimately derailed the efforts.

Senate Majority Leader Jeremy Miller (R-28) previously said the Senate would not support the House bill if it did not expand sports betting opportunities for the state racetracks.

Miami Heat vs Boston Celtics (Game 6) | NBA Conference Finals Picks, Predictions & Best Bets - The Boston Celtics are 1 win away from the NBA Finals after their 93-80 win over the Miami Heat in Miami in Game 5. The Celtics defense was excellent and the Heat struggled to score. Miami was a 7-45 from 3 and their starting backcourt did not make one field goal.

The Celtics star duo of Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown delivered the knockout blow with a combined 47 points in the win. The Celtics defense was everywhere and Miami looked flustered all evening.
