Max’s Sports Bet Picks for 3/12/22
IND (5.5) at SAS (-5.5)
Pick: Bet $10 IND
Total: 236 (Lean Under – 233)
Predicted Score: IND 116 – SAS 117
Notes: I hadn’t realized that the NBA expanded and added a new team in the middle of the season but I see this new team from San Antonio playing the Pacers tonight.
That’s one way to keep the season interesting. Add in random teams to confuse things.
This Spurs team got a big win over the Jazz yesterday and now Popovich is the most winningest coach in NBA history.
Now San Antonio hosts a Pacers team that has lost 4 out of 5 games. Their only win was an OT win over the Magic.
The Pacers are just 3-8 since making their big trade. They are amongst a handful of teams that appear to not have a chance at a play-in game.
The Spurs are only a game out of the play-in games so this game probably means more to them than it does the Pacers.
Indy is 7-26 on the road this season and I don’t have them winning. But I have it very close.
Probably should take the points but screw it.
$10 moneyline bet on the Pacers.
TOR (5) at DEN (-5)
Pick: Bet $10 DEN ML
Total: 225 (Lean Under – 225)
Predicted Score: TOR 111 – DEN 114
Notes: The Nuggets could not beat the Warriors twice in the same week but I blame it on not overcoming the power of a sad little girl.
If you watched the game on Monday, you would have saw a sad girl at the game who didn’t get a chance to see her favorite player – Steph Curry – play.
Well, on Thursday, Curry chatted with the girl, signed an autograph for her, posed for a picture and upped his popularity 10 fold.
Jokic tried to top that by juggling a group of handicapped kids through a flaming hoop but did not get the same reaction.
That threw him off his game and the Nuggets lost.
But Jokic should be in the right mindset today as the Raptors head to town.
Toronto is on game 4 of their road trip. They have won their last two – winning a good one over the Suns yesterday.
Gary Trent Jr. dropped 42 points in the game to make up for an off night by Fred VanVleet.
The Raptors happen to be a pretty damn good road team this year. They got a lot of practice being on the road the past few seasons.
But I think Denver holds their homecourt today and grabs the win.
$10 moneyline bet on the Nuggets.
CLE (3) at CHI (-3)
Pick: Lean CLE
Total: 221 (Lean Over – 229)
Predicted Score: CLE 115 – CHI 114
MIN (6) at MIA (-6)
Pick: Lean MIN
Total: 226 (Lean Over – 228)
Predicted Score: MIN 115 – MIA 113
MIL (-1.5) at GSW (1.5)
Pick: Lean MIL
Total: 232.5 (Lean Under – 231)
Predicted Score: MIL 119 – GSW 112
WAS (-6.5) at POR (6.5)
Pick: Lean WAS
Total: 219.5 (Lean Over – 221)
Predicted Score: WAS 117 – POR 104
SAC (10) at UTA (-10)
Pick: Lean UTA
Total: 230 (Lean Under – 224)
Predicted Score: SAC 108 – UTA 116
New York Rangers (100) at Dallas Stars (-120)
Pick: Bet $10 New York
Notes: The Rangers have dropped two in a row and look to get right today after giving up 11 goals over those two losses.
This Dallas team is capable of putting up some goals but they are coming off a 2-1 road loss to the Predators.
The Stars are returning home after a 3-game road trip but they have been settled in a few days and should have their affairs in order by now.
Dallas is 20-7-1 at home this year – meaning they don’t lose often at the American Airlines Center.
Their last home loss was a month ago.
But I think they are vulnerable today.
Shesterkin is coming off a bad game and I expect him to bounce back to his norm today and allow the Rangers to keep it close.
$10 bet on New York.
Seattle Kraken (-105) at Montreal Canadiens (-115)
Pick: Bet $10 Seattle
Notes: I have one rule in hockey: don’t bet on the Kraken. Whenever I break this rule, it goes horribly wrong.
I’m betting the Kraken today.
Seattle has lost 4 games in a row and is only 7-20-3 on the road this season.
Montreal has won 3 of 5 but are returning home after a long road trip.
The Canadiens are just 8-17-1 at the Bell Centre this season.
Sam Montembeault should be in goal for them today. He’s given up 13 goals over his last 3 games.
I think Seattle has some value today to grab the win. A plus line would be nice but not sure if you can find one now.
$10 bet on the team I shouldn’t be betting on.
St. Louis Blues (110) at Nashville Predators (-135)
Pick: Lean St. Louis
Philadelphia Flyers (250) at Carolina Hurricanes (-320)
Pick: Lean Carolina
Arizona Coyotes (290) at Boston Bruins (-380)
Pick: Lean Boston
Chicago Blackhawks (-110) at Ottawa Senators (-110)
Pick: Lean Ottawa
Anaheim Ducks (120) at New Jersey Devils (-145)
Pick: Lean New Jersey
Detroit Red Wings (285) at Calgary Flames (-370)
Pick: Lean Calgary
Los Angeles Kings (-135) at San Jose Sharks (110)
Pick: Lean Los Angeles
Tampa Bay Lightning (-145) at Edmonton Oilers (120)
Pick: Lean Tampa Bay
