The NHL Stanley Cup Finals get going this week, along with the NBA Finals.
The Stanley Cup features the surprising Nashville Predators facing the defending champion Pittsburgh Penguins. The Penguins rate a slight edge as they have been there before and know what it takes to win the title.
However, the Predators seem to have the intangibles that deem them worthy of grabbing the championship away from the Penguins. They have been on fire during the post-season and just might win it all.
PREDICTION - Nashville over Pittsburgh in six games.
The NBA Finals (yawn) feature yet again the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Golden State Warriors.
The Warriors have swept through the Western Conference playoffs so far while the Cavs are 12-1 entering the finals this time around.
This is the third consecutive season the two have squared off for the NBA title. Golden State won in 2015 while the Cavs overcame a 3-1 series deficit to win it last year.
It should be interesting to see what unfolds this time around, so Heftyinfo is sticking with the prediciton posted when the NBA playoffs began.
PREDICTION - Golden State over Cleveland in five games.
