If you’re looking to watch UNC Wilmington vs. Virginia, East Tennessee State vs. Florida or several other 2017 NCAA Tournament games, it’s likely that you’re going to come across a question that college basketball fans around the country have been asking the last several years come March: What channel is TruTV?

While the actual channel differs depending on your location and TV provider, you can click here for a TruTV channel finder. Simply enter your zip code, and it will tell you where to watch the elusive network.

If you don’t have a cable provider, there are still ways to watch a live stream of TruTV, namely through Sling TV or DirecTV Now.

Here’s a complete rundown of your live stream options if you don’t have cable:


How to Watch a TruTV Live Stream

There are multiple options to watch games on TruTV: Viewers who don’t have a cable subscription will want to watch through Sling TV or DirecTV Now, while viewers with a cable subscription can watch through March Madness live.

For fans without cable: Sling TV and DirecTV Now are both online streaming services that offer access to select channels, including TruTV, for a monthly fee. Both services offer a free seven-day trial, and the services are extremely similar. You can click here to launch a free trial for Sling TV and click here to launch one for DirecTV Now. See below for step-by-step instructions on how to sign up for each.

Since both offer a free trial, you can’t really go wrong with either. And if you’re unsure which service will best serve your needs, you may want to launch a free trial with both, then keep whichever you like best, and drop the other.

One key advantage to Sling is that, once the free trial ends, it’s less expensive than DirecTV Now. Sling’s Blue package, which includes TNT, TBS and TruTV, costs $25. DirecTV Now’s Live a Little package, which also includes all three channels, costs $35 per month, and it’s the least expensive package the service offers.

DirecTV Now, though, has one major advantage itself: Users looking to watch on a computer can watch the tournament directly in their Internet browsers. Sling TV users, meanwhile, have to download a desktop app in order to watch. Users on mobile devices have to download an app for either service. Both services have an app for a handful of connected TV devices.

Here’s how to sign up for each service:

Sling TV on a Computer

2) Click on “Watch Now 7 Days Free”

3) Create an account

NCAA Tournament Odds & Point Spreads 2017

One 14 seed has made it past the first full round of March Madness for four consecutive years – and the Florida Gulf Coast Eagles have a track record of doing well as a big underdog.

The No. 3 seed Florida State Seminoles are 12-point betting favorites against Florida Gulf Coast with a 147-point total in their matchup at sportsbooks monitored by OddsShark.com. Interestingly enough, FGCU is 7-0-1 against the spread in its last eight games as an underdog of at least 12 points. Florida State has an explosive offense led by Dwayne Bacon but is maddeningly inconsistent at 6-4 straight-up and 5-5 ATS across its last 10 games.

No. 13 seeds are 7-5 ATS over the last three years, and two 4 vs. 13 matchups stand out from Thursday’s games in the Round of 64. The Florida Gators are 9.5-point favorites against the East Tennessee State Buccaneers with a 147-point total. Florida is 4-1 SU and ATS in its last five games after an ATS loss. East Tennessee State, which has some size around the rim, is 3-1 ATS in its last four games against SEC teams.

The Purdue Boilermakers are 10.5-point favorites against the Vermont Catamounts with a 134.5-point total. Purdue, which lost in the Big Ten tournament, is 9-0 SU in its last nine games after losing as a favorite. Vermont is 21-0 SU in its last 21 games.

At least one No. 12 has made the Round of 32 in 15 of the last 16 seasons. The Notre Dame Fighting Irish are 6.5-point favorites against the Princeton Tigers with a 134.5-point total. The total has gone UNDER in six of Notre Dame’s last seven games. Princeton is 13-3 ATS in its last 16 games as an underdog of seven points or more.

The Iowa State Cyclones are 6.5-point favorites against the Nevada Wolf Pack with a 156-point total. Nevada, a No. 12 seed, is 9-0 SU and ATS in its last nine games, and is 0-6 ATS in its last six games as an underdog of at least 6.5 points.

The Creighton Bluejays and Rhode Island Rams’ matchup is a pick’em with a 142-point total. Creighton is 1-5 ATS in its last six games against teams with winning records. Rhode Island is 0-13 SU in its last 13 games against the Big East.

The Miami Hurricanes are two-point favorites against the Michigan State Spartans with a 125.5-point total, the lowest in the Round of 64. Miami is 4-14 ATS in its last 18 games as a favorite. Michigan State is 0-8 SU and ATS in its last eight games as an underdog of two points or less.

No. 10 seeds went 3-1 ATS against No. 7 seeds in 2016.

The South Carolina Gamecocks are 1.5-point favorites against the Marquette Golden Eagles with a 144.5-point total. Seventh-seeded South Carolina is 1-9 ATS in its last 10 games. Marquette, whose Big East tournament run ended against defending national champion Villanova, is 12-4 SU in its last 16 games after a loss.

And although they are a 10 seed, the Wichita State Shockers are listed as six-point favorites against the Dayton Flyers with a 145-point total. Wichita State is 7-1 SU and 6-2 ATS in its last eight games against the Atlantic 10. Dayton is 7-2 SU and 8-1 ATS in its last nine games as an underdog of six points or more.

Manchester United vs. Rostov: Time, Channel & Lineup

(Getty)

After an FA Cup exit at Stamford Bridge on Monday, Manchester United must quickly refocus for Thursday’s Europa League match with Rostov. After a 1-1 meeting in Russia, United will defend home turf, something they have done very well in this competition.

United have won all four of their Europa League games at home this season, and have done so with a combined scoring margin of 12-1. They’ll also get two starters back into the lineup, as Zlatan and Ander Herrera will play despite serving domestic bans.

United were shorthanded up front against Chelsea, and they still don’t have anyone behind Zlatan for Thursday. Rooney and Martial are still injured, and Rashford is available despite playing the full game through sickness at Chelsea.

This is Rostov’s first-ever game on English soil. Russian teams haven’t fared well in England, winning just two of their last 26 in European competition.

Here are the basics:


DATE: Thursday, March 16, 2017

Report: Jose Fernandez at Fault For Fatal Boat Crash [READ]

(Getty)

A report released March 16 by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission said that former Miami Marlins pitcher Jose Fernandez was at fault for the fatal boat crash September 25, 2016.

The crash claimed the lives of Fernandez and his two friends, Eduardo Rivero and Emilio Macias.

The report stated that Fernandez was the one who was responsible for all of the deaths in the incident, and committed two felonies in doing so. It says that the boat was traveling at about 65 miles per hour before making impact with a line of large rocks and boulders. A toxicology report found Fernandez to have a blood alcohol level of 0.147 percent along with the presence of cocaine in his blood.

The FFWCC continued in its 46-page finding that Fernandez operated the boat in a “reckless manner at an extremely high rate of speed in the darkness of the night in an area with known navigational hazards.”

Read the full document from the agency below:

Jose Fernandez Accident Report FWC by Grant Stern on Scribd

Marlins president David Samson issued a statement after the report was released. It said that nothing can take away from the positive impact Fernandez had on the Marlins and the Miami area.

Fernandez, who was a Cuban-born pitcher, was 24-years old when his 32-foot boat plowed into the Government Cut north jetty early in the morning in September, the Miami Herald reported.

The medical examiner had originally reported in October 2016 that the two passengers in Ferdnandez’s boat, Macias and Rivero, had alcohol in their system, but were not legally drunk, though Rivero also had cocaine in his blood.

The unexpected death of Fernandez and his friends occurred during the MLB season. It shocked the city of Miami and Fernandez’s teammates, who honored him for the remainder of the year and wore his No. 16 jersey in the first game following his death.

In the first game after Fernandez’s death, one of his friends on the roster, Dee Gordon, had an emotional display that ended with him breaking into tears. Prior to the game, he paid his respects on the pitcher’s mound and followed it up with a home run in Miami’s very first at-bat of the game. It was his first homer of the season.
