Max’s Sports Bet Picks for 3/10/22
BKN (4.5) at PHI (-4.5)
Pick: Bet $10 PHI ML
Total: 229.5 (Lean Over – 234)
Predicted Score: BKN 113 – PHI 121
Notes: Well, it didn’t take long for Jimmy James Harden to get a chance to show up Kyrie and Durant on the court.
Let’s see if there are any friendly words spoken before tipoff between these guys.
Ben Simmons will also be present for the Nets. He’s still not playing yet but at least he will be courtside to cheer his team on.
The Nets are coming off a win that saw Kyrie go off for 50 points. It was their second win over their last 8 games.
The Sixers, on the other hand, have one loss recently. A game that Harden sat out to rest his hammy.
There will be no resting of hammies or backs or knees today. Just the mental break that Simmons remains committed to pretending about.
So I expect that Harden and Embiid hold their home court and show that they are currently the team to beat in the East.
Until Milwaukee hits the playoffs and actually decides to play some real basketball.
But until then, trust the process.
$10 moneyline bet on the Sixers.
GSW (-2.5) at DEN (2.5)
Pick: Bet $10 DEN ML
Total: 220.5 (Lean Over – 235)
Predicted Score: GSW 116 – DEN 119
Notes: The Warriors finally saw some of their players come back and had some extra coaching help from Jackie Moon that pushed them to a 112-97 win over the Clippers two days ago.
It was a much needed win after dropping 5 in a row. One of those losses came to the Nuggets 3 days ago.
The Nuggets are coming off a back-to-back – winning over the Kings yesterday.
Jokic is playing at an MVP level and Denver has won 4 in a row.
Having Curry and Thompson back should make a huge difference. That’s an understatement for sure.
They were not available in the game a few days back and Jordan Poole and Moses Moody did what they could to keep the game close at the end.
But still, this team has lost a lot of their defensive mojo since Draymond has been out. If they want to compete for a title this year, they need him back and healthy.
Can they win this game? Sure.
But the value is still on Denver to grab another win.
$10 moneyline bet on the Nuggets.
Vegas Golden Knights (-230) at Buffalo Sabres (188)
Pick: Bet $10 Vegas
Notes: There is a lot of NHL games today and not a lot I like. Hell, I don’t even love dropping a big minus line on the Vegas Golden Knights yet here I am.
Dropping a big minus line on the Vegas Golden Knights.
Vegas is coming off a shocking loss to a shitty Flyers team. I don’t think they lose to a shitty Buffalo team.
The Sabres have been outscored 9-1 over their last 2 games.
The Golden Knights have been inconsistent on both sides of the ice lately but this is a get-right kind of game.
$10 bet on Vegas.
Tampa Bay Lightning (-120) at Calgary Flames (100)
Pick: Bet $10 Calgary
Notes: It bears repeating that there is not a lot to like today. And while I am betting on this one, I caution everyone to hold off and keep an eye out on this until later.
Calgary has been one of the hottest teams in the league lately. They did lose their last one to Washington and also have a surprise loss to the Canadiens on their recency record.
But this offense is clicking and easily can put up 3 goals before you blink an eye.
Tampa is on game 3 of their road trip and game 2 did not go well.
They got their asses handed to them by the Jets.
Any time you lose to a team called the Jets you have to consider quitting your respective league.
But Tampa finds themselves as the favorite here today.
Which makes me think that Markstrom will not get the start in goal for Calgary today and we will see Vladar out there today.
Either way, I think the value is still on the Flames here.
$10 bet on Calgary.
Colorado Avalanche (-115) at Carolina Hurricanes (-105)
Pick: Lean Colorado
Winnipeg Jets (-120) at New Jersey Devils (100)
Pick: Lean Winnipeg
Minnesota Wild (-190) at Detroit Red Wings (155)
Pick: Lean Minnesota
Seattle Kraken (110) at Ottawa Senators (-130)
Pick: Lean Seattle
Philadelphia Flyers (290) at Florida Panthers (-370)
Pick: Lean Florida
Arizona Coyotes (310) at Toronto Maple Leafs (-400)
Pick: Lean Toronto
Chicago Blackhawks (220) at Boston Bruins (-275)
Pick: Lean Boston
Columbus Blue Jackets (140) at New York Islanders (-160)
Pick: Lean New York
Anaheim Ducks (170) at Nashville Predators (-200)
Pick: Lean Nashville
New York Rangers (110) at St. Louis Blues (-130)
Pick: Lean St. Louis
San Jose Sharks (185) at Los Angeles Kings (-230)
