1-2 on Tuesday night. Should've been better. Miami couldn't cover the 3.5 only winning by 2, and Vegas couldn't hold a 4-1 lead in the third to cover the 1.5. Thankfully Utah came up big against Boston. Nashville got killed for our inaugural underdog of the night, that just how it goes sometimes. Here's tonights slate.
Toronto Raptors (+3, O/U 220.5) @ Boston Celtics
The Toronto Raptors are playing some good basketball again after a nightmarish start to the season. A win tonight would finally get them back to the .500 mark. Boston is coming off of losses to Phoenix and Utah to end their West Coast swing. This is one of those games that can go either way. Toronto could stay hot, or Boston could get back on track tonight. Give me the over, Toronto can score in bunches and with no Marcus Smart it should be easier for the Toronto guards to operate.
Pick: Over 220.5
Philadelphia 76ers (-5.5, O/U 229.5) @ Portland Trail Blazers
The Sixers are coming off wins over Brooklyn and Sacramento after they got blasted by Portland at home. Portland is coming off a low scoring win over Orlando after losing to the Knicks. I believe Philly will be looking to avenge what happened to them last time out against Portland. Give me Philly.
Pick: Sixers -5.5
Tampa Bay Lightning (-168, O/U 5.5) @ Florida Panthers
Tampa is the hottest team in hockey and the best team in hockey. The Panthers are not too bad themselves sitting at 7-1-2. Even though both teams have great defenses, these offenses can get hot in a hurry. Bobrovsky is in net tonight and he historically struggles against this Tampa team. Give me the over.
Pick: Over 5.5
Anaheim Ducks (+194, O/U 5.5) @ Las Vegas Golden Knights
Let's try this again. Vegas holds the lead in the 3rd period this time.
Pick: Vegas -1.5
Underdog of the night
The Edmonton Oilers are coming in to Montreal on a hot streak right now and have owned Montreal 8-2 in their last 10 matchups. Montreal is playing their second game in a row after a hard fought loss to Toronto last night. Carey Price will be resting and the Canadiens legs may be a bit heavy tonight. This means Connor McDavid is gonna fly all around these guys tonight.
Underdog: Edmonton +130
