Max’s Sports Bet Picks for 3/15/22
MEM (-7) at IND (7)
Pick: Bet $10 IND ML
Total: 232.5 (Lean Over – 239)
Predicted Score: MEM 120 – IND 119
Notes: The Pacers lost a close one to the Hawks a couple of days ago.
Despite a slew of recent losses, this Pacers team is keeping it close and staying in games.
The Grizzlies have won 4 of 5 games. Their lone loss was a mental lapse in Houston nine days ago.
Are they ready for another mental lapse?
Memphis has been winning games but their shooting has been trending down the past 2 weeks.
Fortunately for them, the Pacers’ defense isn’t very good. So it is possible Memphis can break that slump today.
As for the Pacers – they have been hot shooting lately. It will be up to the stringent Memphis defense to try to cool them off tonight.
My metrics have this as a pretty close one. Probably should just take the points, but I’m greedy and this moneyline is too tempting.
I am banking on the Grizzlies taking their foot off the pedal tonight and Indy sneaking out a win.
$10 bet on the Pacers.
BKN (-9.5) at ORL (9.5)
Pick: Lean ORL
Total: 231 (Lean Under – 227)
Predicted Score: BKN 114 – ORL 113
DET (13.5) at MIA (-13.5)
Pick: Lean DET
Total: 216.5 (Lean Under – 216)
Predicted Score: DET 106 – MIA 110
PHX (-5) at NOP (5)
Pick: Lean NOP
Total: 225 (Lean Over – 227)
Predicted Score: PHX 113 – NOP 114
Pittsburgh Penguins (-115) at Nashville Predators (-105)
Pick: Bet $10 Pittsburgh
Notes: On the Sunday show, I espoused the wonders a Pittsburgh potty and now I will do the same about the Pittsburgh Penguins.
The Penguins bounced back from a couple of losses with good wins over the Golden Knights and the Hurricanes.
Nashville has not been too shabby themselves – winning 4 of their last 5 games.
These teams have not played each other in about 2 years. So not much head-to-head data we can look at here.
Looking at the Penguins, its hard not to look at Sidney Crosby – no longer a kid – putting up some solid offense the past few weeks.
But its been Tristan Jarry in goal that has this team a contender.
Likewise, Saros in goal for the Predators has them as contenders.
Should be a good one for sure.
I think Penguins have the edge here despite the home ice of Nashville.
$10 bet on Pittsburgh.
Boston Bruins (-175) at Chicago Blackhawks (150)
Pick: Bet $10 Boston
Notes: Boston has won 4 out of 5 including a 4-3 win over the Blackhawks 5 days ago.
Chicago is coming off a win over the Senators but I can’t imagine them winning two games in a row – something they have only done twice all season.
Boston, when healthy, is one of the more dangerous teams in the league. Well, overall, they are healthy here.
For Chicago, Marc Andre-Fleury is likely to be traded before the deadline. The Maple Leafs could be a desirable destination for him.
Yes, he’d be backup to Campbell – but he’d be on a possible Cup contender and with the injury to Campbell hurting the Maple Leafs’ playoff seeding, he could see important minutes down the stretch.
Fleury is expected to be in goal tonight so maybe he has a good outing to further prove his worth to a contending team.
Still, the Boston offense is brutal. They rank 5th in shots on goal and 8th in high danger shots.
I think they get it done today.
$10 bet on the Bruins.
New Jersey Devils (140) at Vancouver Canucks (-160)
Pick: Bet $10 New Jersey
Notes: Nico Daws is set to be in goal for the Devils today and when he gets the start, I like taking a value shot on New Jersey.
Daws led the Devils to a win Saturday over the Ducks and he continues to build his confidence as the possible future goalie for this team.
Vancouver has lost 2 in a row after having a nice win streak.
It is early, but the money is hammering the Devils here and that line is losing value.
I’ll jump on them now while the plus line is still a bit juicy.
$10 bet on New Jersey.
Dallas Stars (123) at Toronto Maple Leafs (-140)
Pick: Lean Toronto
New York Islanders (140) at Washington Capitals (-160)
Pick: Lean Washington
Anaheim Ducks (195) at New York Rangers (-230)
Pick: Lean New York
Arizona Coyotes (140) at Montreal Canadiens (-160)
Pick: Lean Arizona
Vegas Golden Knights (104) at Winnipeg Jets (-125)
Pick: Lean Vegas
Detroit Red Wings (255) at Edmonton Oilers (-310)
Pick: Lean Edmonton
Florida Panthers (-230) at San Jose Sharks (195)
Pick: Lean Florida
Colorado Avalanche (-215) at Los Angeles Kings (180)
Pick: Lean Colorado
