Max’s Sports Bet Picks for 5/14/22
Tampa Bay Lightning (105) at Toronto Maple Leafs (-126)
Pick: Bet $10 Toronto
Notes: Three game 7’s today and I’m only betting one.
Time to see if the Maple Leafs can knock off the defending champs.
Neither team has managed to win 2 games in a row in this series.
Which maybe favors the Maple Leafs since Tampa won the last the one.
The last two games have been close ones – with game 6 heading into OT.
Tampa has beaten the Maple Leafs in Toronto once in this series but I don’t think they do it again.
$10 bet on the Maple Leafs.
Boston Bruins (112) at Carolina Hurricanes (-134)
Pick: Lean Carolina
Los Angeles Kings (188) at Edmonton Oilers (-230)
Pick: Lean Los Angeles
LAA (-120) at OAK (102)
Pick: Bet $10 LAA
Notes: The A’s got a dose of reality as they went from beating up on the Tigers to being blanked by the Angels.
Oakland will put their de facto ace on the mound today as 4-0 Paul Blackburn gets the nod against Jhonaton Diaz.
That should help the A’s hang in this game – but ultimately, their lack of offense will bite them again.
I like the Angels to get at least a homerun or two to get the win today.
$10 bet on the Angels.
HOU (-166) at WSH (140)
Pick: Bet $10 HOU
Notes: The Astros took it to the Nats yesterday and very little reason not to think they take it to them again today.
Cristian Javier has been practically unhittable to start this season.
He’ll match up against Erick Fedde- who has had 3 consecutive solid starts.
Each team has an 11 game streak on the line.
Washington has lost 11 in a row and Houston has won 11 straight.
Make that 12 and 12.
$10 bet on the Astros.
KC (138) at COL (-164)
Pick: Bet $10 COL
Notes: I missed on the Royals yesterday as they took advantage of Coors Field and put up 14 runs.
They have a chance to tee off again today as a very hittable German Marquez will get the start for the Rockies.
Yesterday was Colorado’s 6th home loss of the season and maybe this is a bit of gambler’s fallacy or chasing waterfalls, but I just don’t see KC giving the Rockies home loss #7.
$10 bet on the Rockies.
CHC (136) at ARI (-162)
Pick: Bet $10 ARI
Notes: From chasing to double-dipping – I’m just breaking all of my rules.
I hit on the Diamondbacks yesterday and I look to hit on them again.
Zac with a C will take the bump today. He’s sporting a 0.95 ERA and 0.71 WHIP.
The Cubs will throw Kyle Hendricks out there today.
If you downloaded and listened to yesterday’s episode, you would have heard us talking about average NBA players.
Well, Hendricks is pretty much the definition of an average pitcher.
He’s the type of guy who you like in your rotation as a #3 or #4 but not someone you want matched up against an ace like Zac.
I like the D-Backs to win their 5th out of their last 6 games today.
$10 bet on Arizona.

SD (112) at ATL (-132)
Pick: Lean ATL
