Not a good Saturday after a huge Friday but overall we had ourselves another profitable February and we are on to March! Plenty more NBA and NHL action, MARCH MADNESS (my bracket pool is now open DM to sign up), and of course - MLB! It's going to be another great month, let's get it started right today.
Flyers (-115) - These two teams just played on Friday night and we took the over. I was thinking about taking it again today but the 6.5 has me staying away. We are taking the Flyers instead and they are great value today. The Flyers have now beat the Rangers twice this season with scores of 5-1 and 5-2, domination. The Rangers are also without one of their top three goal scorers Chris Kreider due to a head injury. I think the Flyers will get their third win of the season against the Rangers today.
Capitals / Wild Over (6) - 6 of the last 10 games combined have gone over 6 for these two teams. The Wild have been hot and not only have they won 4 of their last 5 but they have scored 5 or more goals in those 4 wins. The Capitals are no offensive slouch and their 3.41 goals per game ranks 4th best in the league. They have scored 4 or more goals in 2 of their last 3 games. I am liking the over in this game tonight.
Lakers (-125) - I know the Lakers got absolutely smoked last night but I’m not going to shy away from taking them tonight in a Sunday Night primetime game on ESPN. They had an off shooting night last night, it happens. But they have still won 9 of their last 10 including a 118-109 win against this same Pelicans team last Tuesday. LeBron has 40 points in that game and the Lakers cruises to an easy win. The Lakers had 12 blocks in that game as well. Zion is going to get his but I like the Lakers to win this game tonight.
