Morning Coffee: Habs, Golden Knights Set For Game 1

As of this morning, Vegas is -500, which would make them the largest favourite in a Stanley Cup semifinal over the past 32 years. Is the fact that number indicates an 83.3 per cent implied probability the Golden Knights advance reasonable? Or is the fact that the Habs made it this far in the first place contrary to that price?

How the weather should factor in your fantasy baseball lineup decisions

Opposing Pitcher. Bullpen. Spot in the Batting Order. Ballpark. Everyone knows to consider these when we're talking about "matchups." If you're streaming a hitter, you'd rather he be facing Bruce Zimmermann than Jacob deGrom. But there's one massively important matchup factor that goes strangely overlooked: weather.
