Max’s Sports Bet Picks for 5/2/21

 

NBA

A mixed bag with my NBA moneyline experiment but I think I have something to work with. The goal is to pick only 1 underdog play each day and total up your favorites to cover that loss should it not hit. The dog play should be your best dog play. Will see how that goes.

NHL

Sports Bet Picks for 5/2/21

Tampa Bay Lightning (-346) at Detroit Red Wings (293)

Pick: Lean Detroit

Notes: I was leaning Detroit yesterday and they got that game. Can they win 2 in a row? Probably not. But there is still value. Detroit plays Tampa hard and is pretty solid at home. Either stay off this one or take a small flyer on Detroit.
