It’s a bit of a strange day with no playoff action taking place, but after a wild end to the Conference Semifinals in NHL Hockey last night, it’s a nice break from the action to refocus, place some new wagers on Major League Baseball and Soccer, and get ready for the start of the NBA and NHL Conference finals, which kick off tomorrow afternoon. With plenty of both baseball and soccer action throughout the day, try your hand with the 16 games scheduled in the MLB, along with 7 games in store for the budding MLS season.
