The NBA Final gets under way tonight in Miami with Dallas visiting. Not sure who I like in the series, but know I love the Mavs at +4.5 tonight. They've had a ridiculous record against the spread the entire playoffs, especially on the road.
Manchester United long-timer Paul Scholes has retired, and the accolades don't get better than Zinedine Zidane calling him the best midfielder of his generation. Who replaces him at United?
