Tyler Herro Injury Update: Heat Sharpshooter To Miss Game 4 Of Eastern Conference Finals

Matt Brandon May 23rd 12:27 PM EDT. Edited 12:27 PM.

Sixth Man of the Year Tyler Herro won’t suit up for Miami’s Eastern Conference Finals Game 4 matchup with the Boston Celtics. Herro came down with a hamstring injury that will prevent him from logging any minutes tonight.

After almost blowing a 25-point lead Saturday night, the Heat managed to take Game 3 on the road in Boston. The top-seeded Heat leads the series, two games to one, heading into tonight’s pivotal matchup. After scoring double figures in nine straight postseason games, Herro struggled immensely in Game 3, finishing with just eight points. It was the first time he failed to produce 10+ points since Game 5 of Miami’s first-round series against the Atlanta Hawks.

Matt Brandon May 5th 6:14 PM EDT. Edited 6:14 PM.

The entire landscape of the NFL has changed drastically this offseason, perhaps more so than any other year in recent memory. The dust has settled after the 2022 NFL Draft and the first two tiers of free-agent acquisitions. Superstar quarterbacks were traded, big-time playmaking receivers signed with new franchises, and of course, the NFL Draft occurred last weekend. Yes, rosters will still slightly be tweaked but we can now evaluate how each franchise did heading into the 2022 NFL season. So which teams made moves that will help them become contenders and which teams tanked the draft and are moving in the wrong direction? Let’s dive in and break it all down.

BetMGM Sportsbook Review

Matt Brandon Mar 21st 5:32 PM EDT. Edited 5:52 PM.

My fellow expert here at FantasySP, Will Desvalles, enjoys FanDuel Sportsbook more than any other sportsbook out there in the industry. I wholeheartedly disagree, but I will say that FanDuel is in my top three. My favorite sportsbook is BetMGM. MGM took its famed brand to the world of online betting, and the result is an incredibly user-friendly sportsbook. MGM offers a $1,000 risk-free bet and additional otherworldly promotions to new users and current active users. So let’s dive in and find out why MGM is my favorite sportsbook to utilize (excluding the fact that I’m up thousands using this app in 2022… but I digress).

Matt Brandon Mar 9th 1:15 PM EST. Edited 1:35 PM.

In the same way, many people thought Aaron Rodgers would re-sign in Green Bay, people thought that Russell Wilson would be re-signed by the Seahawks. Yesterday, the football world was shocked when Wilson was traded to the Denver Broncos. Today, we’ll take a look at how the big news surrounding Wilson’s trade to Denver significantly weakens the Seahawks’ offense. In contrast, the Green Bay Packers and the Denver Broncos have had themselves a great 24 hours, as the quarterbacks each team signed will greatly improve their offenses and chances at a title.

Sports Betting 101: The Complicated Round Robin Bet Explained

Matt Brandon Mar 9th 4:48 AM EST. Edited 5:08 AM.

We’ve covered a ton of popular bet offerings from various sportsbooks but Round Robin bets are my new favorite wager type. The worst feeling in the world is getting five-of-six legs correct in a parlay and losing everything. With Round Robins, you would profit if you got five of the six bets correct, though the payout isn’t as great as getting all six correct. Conversely, if you do a five-leg Round Robin and only get three right, you won’t lose your entire stake. Depending on the odds, you will only lose a little bit or perhaps even break even if your underdogs picks pan out.

Matt Brandon Feb 23rd 4:58 PM EST. Edited 4:47 PM.

Although the NBA Dunk Contest was “a disgrace,” according to Stephen A. Smith, fans and bettors were treated to an entertaining All-Star Game this year in Cleveland.

Before NBA action picks back up tomorrow, let’s take a look at the top contenders’ odds at winning the NBA Championships as we gear up for the second half of the season.

Super Bowl LVI Betting Recap

Matt Brandon Feb 14th 3:41 PM EST. Edited 3:41 PM.

The NFL season is finally over as Matthew Stafford and Cooper Kupp led the Rams to a 23-20 victory over Joe Burrow and the Cincinnati Bengals. After the Bengals came out of the second half with an electrifying 75-yard touchdown pass to Tee Higgins (Higgins got away with an offensive pass interference call on Jalen Ramsey), it appeared the Bengals had a shot at winning this game. With Odell Beckham Jr. out of the game after another torn ACL, Stafford struggled without his second-best receiver and with Tyler Higbee and Kendall Blanton sidelined.
