It pays to ride hot teams down the stretch and there is no shortage of those as the playoffs near. The Chicago Blackhawks have won seven in a row and are 9-1 in their last 10 as they come off their bye on Thursday and the Montreal Canadiens, Ottawa Senators and Boston Bruins have all won seven of their last 10. However, the Calgary Flames might be the best value bet in the league right now. The Flames are riding a seven-game winning streak and are 8-1-1 in their last 10 to jump into the first Wild Card spot in the West. This hot streak has helped Calgary supporters recoup some of their losses as the Flames now sit at 35-31 on the puckline spread.
If you’re looking to make a buck betting NHL totals, take a look at the Pittsburgh Penguins, Edmonton Oilers and the Ottawa Senators. Given Pittsburgh’s offensive power, oddsmakers consistently post high totals for Penguins games, but Crosby and Co. have the over at 39-21-4 on the year. On the other side of the coin, Edmonton and Ottawa are great under bets. Edmonton’s record on the total is 25-37-4 while Ottawa is at 25-37-2.
World Baseball Classic
Team Canada has its work cut out for itself in the World Baseball Classic. Canada is set as a +5000 long shot to win the tournament and plays its first game as +278 underdog against the Dominican Republic. Team USA is the WBC tournament favourite at +225 with the Dominican Republic at +300. As you’d expect with their star-studded rosters, we’re seeing solid action on those two squads, but not much on any other team.
The NCAA Conference Tournaments tip off this week and are always a great place to do some last-minute handicapping before the NCAA Tournament starts next week. The PAC 12 Tournament looks like a complete toss-up with Oregon pegged as a slight +150 favourite, just ahead of UCLA at +159 and Arizona at +251. Kentucky is a -112 favourite to win the SEC and Kansas is seeing solid action to win the Big 12, also as a -112 favourite.
Georges St-Pierre’s official return to the UFC became official last week when Dana White announced that the Canadian would fight Michael Bisping for the middleweight championship in his first fight back off a three-year hiatus. St-Pierre opened as a -150 favourite in that bout, then dropped down to -130 due to some Bisping bets, but has moved back to -150 again. No date or location has been set for the fight as of yet.
