Race to the finish

NASCAR’s Zack Albert is looking at Brad Keselowski at the Daytona 500.“With a strong restrictor-plate acumen, all the variables set to finally align for the No. 2 crew at the Great American Race.”

Albert’s boldest prediction is picking the five first-time winners. “Chase Elliott is expected to finally break through, but add Alex Bowman, William Byron, Erik Jones and Daniel Suarez to that list.” Albert believes Kyle Busch will go all the way, based on his racing accomplishments over the last year.

Joey Logano is NASCAR’s Jessica Ruffin’s pick for the Daytona 500. “The Fords have proven to be the cars to beat in the long run at Daytona, and Team Penske’s Logano has the plate prowess to be patient when he needs to be (and aggressive when coming to the checkered).”

Ruffin’s long-stretch prediction is a surprise playoff qualifier. “William Byron’s rise through the ranks has been quick, but successful. He won multiple races in his Xfinity and Truck rookie seasons, so look for strong, consistent runs — if not a win — for the young driver this year.” Ruffin agrees with Zach Albert and pegs Kyle Busch to go all the way

The teams entered the rink on April 11thto compete for professional hockey’s highest honor, the Stanley Cup. The front-runners for this year’s championship title are the Pittsburgh Penguins but they face a tough contender in Tampa Bay’s team. They have a history of close calls in regard to tournament wins—last year they missed the playoffs by only one point—but experts are still sticking with the Penguins.

Come into Greeley early to watch the games and enjoy our NHL “McBreakfast Biscuit,”a buttermilk biscuit sandwich with one egg, American cheese, sausage, bacon or ham and a side of breakfast potatoes. Add an Irish Coffee to keep you warm as you watch the players on the ice.

It’s March Madness! Go Crazy at Greeley Avenue Bar

March Madness is here and the crowd at Greeley Avenue Bar is ready to host NCAA fans all month long.

Greeley - March Madness_Dirk Hansen

Selection Sunday is this weekend, March 11th, and for college basketball fans this means the start of a fast and furious month that will lead up to intense play during the final four. The teams have been showing a lot of skill and strategy on the court this season that will all culminate in what should be an amazing showdown in the Final Four games.

Come down to Greeley Avenue Bar & Grill with your brackets and enjoy a beer as you watch the action unfold on our twelve big screen TVs. Here are the teams the Internet experts are predicting may go all the way.  Greeley - March Madness_rrescot

Kansas Jayhawks

Andrew Hammond of the website Fansided is going with Villanova, Virginia, Xavier and Kansas as the Final Four. Xavier might be a bit of a stretch after their loss to Villanova, but Hammond is relying on the stats that say Xavier is ranking 3rd in the RPI, 5th in strength of schedule and a spectacular 24 wins, which is the same as Villanova and Virginia.

The Kansas vs. Michigan State match-up for the last spot on the top seed line will be close but he’s predicting the Jayhawks will take it based on their overall season. KU may have five less wins than Michigan State (21-26), but the wins are technically better, particularly within the conference.

In the end, Hammond predicts that Kansas will take the championship ring.

Greeley - March Madness_Michael Berera

Michigan Wolverines

USA Today reporter Scott Gleeson believes that it’ll boil down to Michigan. They continue to rack up wins and their games are strong. They’ve been consistently getting better since November and they are really performing at a high level going into the tournament. Defensive coach John Beilein has the best players he’s ever had and they have mastered a fluid, balanced offense that gives them a strong chance to take it all the way.

Greeley - March Madness_Thomson20192

Virginia

Paul Kasabain of the Bleacher Report says Virginia is a good bet to win the tournament. The top scoring defense by the Cavaliers has allowed for 52.8 points per game and the Pomeroy college basketball ratings also have them ranked as the most efficient team in the nation in terms of their defense. And, don’t overlook their offense. UVA has ranked 32nd in the nation thanks to a 38.9 percent rate and their consistent 3-pointer shooters. Their players are superb, with sophomore guard Kyle Guy leading the Virginia Cavaliers with 13.9 points per game.

Bring your bracket sheets and watch the games with us at Greeley Avenue Bar & Grill, the best neighborhood sports bar in North Portland!
