West Brom v Chelsea Betting Tips

Costa scored his 20th league goal of the season, converting a pass from the excellent Cesc Fabregas, and Alonso netted from a similar position before half-time before Nemanja Matic's second-half goal.

Everton vs. Chelsea live stream

The Everton striker is leading the Premier League with 24 goals. But inherently they love playing up top as the focus point of the attack, both men having run a LOT this season chasing down balls and being a nuisance to defences - although it has been said that Lukaku is perhaps the more selfish of the two.

Chelsea just one win away from title

Costa got his 20th league goal this season in the 23rd minute, controlling a ball lofted into the area by compatriot Cesc Fabregas and neatly nutmegging keeper Brad Guzan.

Do the Toronto Raptors need to hit the reset button?


They trailed the Raptors by three points at halftime in Game 3 on May 5 and then played a near flawless second half to win, 115-94, and take a 3-0 lead in the best-of-seven Eastern Conference semifinal series. Sounds like pretty good reasoning to me. That's my whole mindset, 'How can we get this win? James, who averaged 37 points in the first two games, was showing more of his superstar talent late as the Cavs wore on the Raps and built a 23-point fourth-quarter lead. Read More »

Barcelona coach Luis Enrique: Double still on


Luis Enrique told reporters: " Las Palmas have had a very good season". They drew home and away against Madrid this season, and Barca managed only a narrow 2-1 win in Gran Canaria a year ago. Picking a defence to face them becomes slightly easier when you have Lionel Messi , Luis Suarez and Neymar in attack, though. For me, the choice is actually relatively simple; based on the form of key midfield personnel, Enrique should have no hesitation in starting with a three-man backline and ... Read More »

Steph Curry warns the Spurs' defense ahead of the Western Conference finals

The words I have been using to describe the Golden State Warriors all season are historically great, and they have a chance to make me look smart in this series.

Brunt warns WBA won't roll over for Chelsea

Tim Duncan is long ago retired. The Spurs are back in the Western Conference finals for the first time since winning the 2014 title. It's generally tough for bigs to post up against Golden State, especially against Green. The Warriors play a similar style of basketball as the Rockets - they like to get out in transition and play at a fast, uptempo pace - but Popovich said you can't draw much from the team's last series heading into this next one.
