Some great matchups on deck tonight in both the NHL and NBA. It's going to be tough to pick some of these games just because they are such good matchups, but I've never been one to back away from a challenge. Hopefully tonight starts another hot streak for me.
Florida Panthers (+120, O/U 6.5) @ Carolina Hurricanes
This is an early 5oclock game tonight so make sure you get your bets in on time. Probably 2 of the hottest teams in all of hockey right here. The Panthers are 9-2-2 and just took 2 out of 3 from the best team in hockey in Tampa Bay. Carolina is 10-3-0 and winners of 3 straight. The scores in these teams games as of late have been so high they should expect a raid from the DEA at any moment. The average amount of combined goals for these teams in their last 3 games have been 7.5 for Florida and 8.3 for Carolina. The Panthers historically struggle in Carolina, but after what they just did to Tampa I expect them to come in with too much confidence for Carolina to handle. Call me crazy but I think they'll buck the trend and go under in this game. Especially with the total being a high 6.5. I'll let you decide that one for yourself though.
Pick: Panthers +120
Ottawa Senators (+290, O/U 6.5) @ Toronto Maple Leafs
Toronto embarrassed themselves by blowing that 5-1 lead and losing the game to Ottawa on Monday. I expect a bounce back stomping here to make up for it.
Pick: Toronto -1.5
Miami Heat (+106, O/U 222.5) @ Golden State Warriors
Miami is not a great basketball team right now and they are hurt by injuries. They lost on Monday night to a Clippers team playing without Paul George and Kawhi Leonard. Golden State is not a great team, but they have plenty of talent to beat Miami tonight. Especially with Miami being in the middle of a long west coast swing. Steph scores 35+ in this one.
Utah Jazz (-3.5, O/U 227.5) @ Los Angeles Clippers
Jazz can't lose. 9-1 ATS in their last 10 and continuing to be the hottest team in basketball. No Paul George again tonight for the Clippers and Kawhi is questionable. Give me Utah either way, but especially if Kawhi is out.
Pick: Jazz -3.5
Portland visits New Orleans tonight. Winners of 5 straight and 8-2 in their last 10 this Portland team is hot. Damian Lillard is the MVP this season and he shows us why again tonight. Give me Portland +122
