Max’s Sports Bet Picks for 12/14/21
PHX (-2.5) at POR (2.5)
Pick: Bet $10 PHX ML
Total: 218 (Lean Under – 212)
Predicted Score: PHX 107 – POR 105
Notes: The big question marks in this game is who will be playing. The Suns lost to the Clippers last night – mostly because they were without Booker, Ayton and a few other players.
That left them with only 10 players to put on the court.
For Portland, CJ McCollum has a collapsed lung and is out for the foreseeable future.
Portland is 10-5 at home this season but they are riding a 5-game losing streak – including their last 4 at home. The Suns have been a very good road team this season – shooting only 2% worse on the road than at home.
If Ayton plays, I think the Suns win. With him on the court they are one of the best defensive teams in the league.
Portland is one of the worst – so that disparity should result in a Phoenix win.
$10 moneyline bet on the Suns.
GSW (-3.5) at NYK (3.5)
Pick: Lean GSW
Total: 211.5 (Lean Under – 210)
Predicted Score: GSW 107 – NYK 103
Notes: This line indicates that maybe Steph Curry will rest in this one.
He’s one 3-pointer shy of breaking Ray Allen’s record and he probably wants to do it in front of a big city like this.
Though their next game is Friday in Boston and that could be fitting too.
New York will be without RJ Barrett and Obi Toppin as they are out with COVID protocols.
New York has lost 3 in a row and have dropped to 5-9 at home. The Warriors are coming off a close win last night that improved them to 8-3 on the road.
TOR (8.5) at BKN (-8.5)
Pick: Lean TOR
Total: 216 (Lean Under – 208)
Predicted Score: TOR 105 – BKN 103
Notes: The Nets return home after a 4-game road trip. Durant is coming off a 51-point game in Brooklyn’s win over the Pistons on Saturday.
The Raptors are playing some good basketball right now. They have won 4 of 5 and are 7-5 on the road.
New Jersey Devils (105) at Philadelphia Flyers (-125)
Pick: Bet $10 New Jersey
Notes: The Devils have lost 4 of 5 and are a pretty dreadful road team. The Flyers return home after a successful road trip that saw them win 2 of 3 games.
These teams faced off last week with the Devils coming out on top 3-0. The Devils should be able to get a win today if they don’t get into penalty trouble.
5 on 5, the Devils’ defense is good enough to shut down Philly’s lackluster offense. So I see value on taking New Jersey today.
$10 bet on the Devils.
Vegas Golden Knights (115) at Boston Bruins (-135)
Pick: Bet $10 Boston
Notes: The 4th best offense heads to Boston to take on the 6th best defense in a possible Stanley Cup matchup. A lot would need to happen in the standings to see that matchup, however.
Both teams sit in 4th in their respective divisions – making them 8th seeds in their conferences. Vegas is playing some very good hockey as of late and have won 4 of 5 games.
Boston returns home after a 3-game road trip. This is the longest road trip they have endured this season so let’s see if these guys got their bills in order before hitting the ice tonight.
I like Boston to nab the win today.
$10 bet on the Bruins.
Seattle Kraken (125) at San Jose Sharks (-145)
Pick: Bet $10 Seattle
Notes: Seattle has lost 4 of 5 games and is 3-7 on the road this season. San Jose is a pretty decent home team and coming off a win over Dallas.
I just don’t see them as that big of a favorite here. Their offense ranks 23rd in goals scored per game and in expected goals for.
So the offense we see from them is probably what we will get from here on out.
Seattle’s goaltending has been a major issue for them. I do think there is some hope for it to get better as it certainly cannot get much worse.
A bit of a value flyer here. $10 bet on the Kraken.
Ottawa Senators (240) at Florida Panthers (-300)
Pick: Lean Florida
Montreal Canadiens (235) at Pittsburgh Penguins (-290)
Pick: Lean Pittsburgh
Los Angeles Kings (170) at Tampa Bay Lightning (-200)
Pick: Lean Tampa Bay
Columbus Blue Jackets (125) at Vancouver Canucks (-145)
Pick: Lean Columbus
New York Islanders (-120) at Detroit Red Wings (100)
Pick: Lean New York
Carolina Hurricanes (115) at Minnesota Wild (-135)
Pick: Lean Carolina
Buffalo Sabres (210) at Winnipeg Jets (-250)
Pick: Lean Winnipeg
St. Louis Blues (140) at Dallas Stars (-160)
Pick: Lean St. Louis
Toronto Maple Leafs (-130) at Edmonton Oilers (110)
Pick: Lean Toronto
New York Rangers (170) at Colorado Avalanche (-200)
Pick: Lean Colorado
