Max’s Sports Bet Picks for 4/4/22
MLB 2022 Win Totals
Boston Bruins (-255) at Columbus Blue Jackets (205)
Pick: Bet $10 Boston
Notes: The Blue Jackets have lost 6 in a row – including a 5-2 loss to Boston just a few days ago.
The Bruins have won 4 of 5 and their offense is clicking heading into the playoffs.
Boston is an incredibly deep team offensively. We know their top line with Marchand and Bergeron can do a lot of damage.
But their second line with Erik Haula, Taylor Hall and David Pastrnak have also been incredible.
Boston’s goalies have both done well so it should not be an issue that Linus Ulmark is slated to get the start today.
He saved 25 of 26 shots against a pretty good Devils offense in his last start. He should do quite well tonight too.
The line should keep getting worse here so I will jump on before it gets to that point.
$10 bet on the Bruins.
Toronto Maple Leafs (116) at Tampa Bay Lightning (-140)
Pick: Bet $10 Toronto
Notes: A couple of teams playing some winning hockey right here.
The Maple Leafs have won 4 in a row while the Lightning have won 4 of 5 – dropping an odd one to the Canadiens a few days ago.
Both teams are pretty close in the standings but the Maple Leafs just got a big adrenaline shot as goalie Jack Campbell returned for a win on Saturday.
Campbell had missed the previous 10 games so it was good to see him healthy and ready for a playoff run.
It also helps when you have the top goal scorer on your team. Auston Matthews has had a hell of a season and is ready to take that goal scoring into the playoffs.
Tampa also knows a thing or two about good goaltending. Andrei Vasilevskiy continues to be one of the best in the game.
I’ve learned my lesson from discounting the Lightning. So I do expect them to be dangerous in the playoffs.
But on this given night I am tossing out the lessons I have learned on this team and betting the Maple Leafs with a plus line.
$10 bet on Toronto.
Arizona Coyotes (315) at St. Louis Blues (-410)
Pick: Lean St. Louis
Notes: The Coyotes got a win yesterday. Should they be a value play today?
Not by my metrics but I still could not argue with someone doing it. Because, you know, the Blues.
The Coyotes’ offense has been deadly. Just not good enough to deal with their complete lack of defense and goaltending.
The Blues should be able to score at will today. Which means eye the over.
As for the game, the value is on Arizona for sure but I do have the Blues winning enough to warrant a lean.
Lean on St. Louis.
Calgary Flames (-184) at Los Angeles Kings (152)
Pick: Bet $10 Calgary
Notes: The Flames have lost 3 games in a row and look to break that slump against a Kings team that has won 2 in a row.
Including a win over the Flames just 4 days ago.
I’ve made some money this season betting on the Kings but today, I need to fade them and jump on Calgary.
In the battle for the Pacific, the Flames have a 3 point lead over LA. So this is a pretty important game.
Jacob Markstrom has been shaky lately but I think he has a bounce back game today.
Quick should be in goal for the Kings – which means an under play could be in order. It’s been 3-2 scores for these teams this season and I can see the same thing happening today.
So perhaps you can also chicken shit play the Kings +1.5 if you want.
But I will take the Flames for the outright win.
$10 bet on Calgary.
