The Preakness Preview

17 May 2018

Saturday marks the 143rd running of the Preakness Stakes at Pimlico Race Course in Baltimore, Maryland. Twenty-three times in its illustrious history the Kentucky Derby winner has gone on to take the Preakness, and a dozen of those horses have finished off the Triple Crown by winning the Belmont Stakes as well.

More horsepower will be on display in the Sprint Cup All-Star Challenge where NASCAR drivers will race in four stages under the lights in Charlotte, North Carolina. Both NHL Conference Finals stand at 2-1, Vegas leading Winnipeg, and Washington on top of Tampa Bay. And there will be plenty of MLB action on this week's GridCard, including an inter-league matchup between the Indians and Cubs.

But the most anticipated matchups are in the NBA. Game 3 of the NBA Eastern Conference Finals moves to Cleveland with the LeBron James and the Cavaliers trying to break through and get back into the series. The Rockets travel to Golden State for Game 3 of the WCF,  trying to wrestle back home-court advantage. James Harden and LeBron James each have a prop bet in the mix this week.
