Best bets on the Tube


The Confederations Cup has the final many wanted: a long-awaited matchup between world champion Spain and host Brazil ( 11:30 a.m., ESPN). The most dominant national team in years and the most successful team ever in international play meet today at Maracana Stadium in Rio de Janeiro for the title of the warmup tournament for next year’s World Cup. It will be the first meeting between the nations since 1999.

Also: Colorado has plenty to choose from with the first pick of a talent-rich NHL draft ( noon, NBC Sports). Nathan MacKinnon and Seth Jones are among the candidates to go first at New Jersey’s Prudential Center. – Associated Press
