Top 4 Games Of The Day For Sunday, June 26

Stanley Cup Game 6, two awesome baseball games and an MLS match highlight Sunday’s sports slate

#1. Avalanche at Lightning (Stanley Cup Final Game 6)

After failing to even up the series at home in Game 4, the back-to-back reigning Stanley Cup champion Tampa Bay Lightning found themselves down 3-1 facing elimination in Game 5. However, they earned a stellar 3-2 road win to keep this series alive as star goaltender Andrei Vasilevskiy stopped 35 of 37 Avalanche shots, stoning Colorado on several clutch opportunities. Will the Avs get the job done on the road or will the Lightning keep the dream of a three-peat alive? BetQL is listing a number of edges to take advantage of for Game 6, so be sure to take a look above!

#2. Dodgers at Braves (Sunday Night Baseball)

On Sunday Night Baseball, Dodgers starter Tony Gonsolin (9-0, 1.58 ERA) can become the first MLB pitcher to earn his 10th win of the year. Raise your hand if you predicted that before the season! In 68.1 innings pitched, he’s only allowed 35 hits and 21 walks (0.82 WHIP) and he’s also struck out 64. While he isn’t asked to pitch deep into games, Gonsolin has been a major surprise for LA. Meanwhile, strikeout artist Spencer Strider (3-2, 3.40 ERA) will toe the rubber for the defending champs in this exciting primetime rivalry matchup.

#3. New York Red Bulls at LAFC (MLS)

How ‘bout a little MLS action on a Sunday afternoon? LAFC enters this match with the best record in MLS (9-3-3, 30 points) while the New York Red Bulls (7-5-4, 26 points) are currently in second place on the Eastern Conference table. LAFC owns the league’s best goal differential (+13: 30 goals, 17 goals against), but the Red Bulls are +9 (26 goals, 17 goals against). This has the makings of an epic one at Banc of California Stadium!

#4. Astros at Yankees (MLB)

Anytime mustached wizard Nestor Cortes (6-3, 2.31 ERA) takes the hill for the Yankees, it’s must-watch television. The diminutive lefty has been incredible this year, but now faces a major test against a quality offense while in shaky form. Over his last three starts, he’s allowed 16 hits and nine earned runs in 14.0 innings, taking the loss in two of them. Not only that, but he’s only managed 10 strikeouts in that span, including just three in two of the contests. In his previous 10 starts, he’d only struck out less than four just two times. Jose Urquidy (6-3, 4.68 ERA) will pitch for the Astros against a powerful Yankees offense, but it’ll be fascinating to see if Cortes can get back to his early-season form.
