Stanley Cup contenders are weighing their options ahead of Monday’s NHL Trade Deadline, hoping to add a key player or two to help them in the push for the playoffs. The St. Louis Blues, Washington Capitals, Pittsburgh Penguins and Tampa Bay Lightning have pulled of deals already and may not be done there. The Boston Bruins and Colorado Avalanche are expected to be active as well. As of now, the Lightning are Cup favourites at +450, followed by the Bruins at +550, Penguins (+750), Avs (+1000), and Blues (+1000).
The Lightning take an 11-game winning streak into Thursday’s date with the Knights in Vegas before they visit the Coyotes on Sunday. The Penguins visit the Capitals in a big matinee matchup on Sunday in DC.
The National Basketball Association gets back at it on Thursday after the All-Star break with six games on the schedule. The Toronto Raptors host the Phoenix Suns on Friday night as they look to build on a very impressive run before the break. Toronto won 15 consecutive games, a record for Canadian pro sports, pushing the Dinos to the top of the Atlantic Division. The Raps are now second overall (behind the Milwaukee Bucks) in the Eastern Conference. Speaking of the Bucks, who are a league-best 46-8 outright, they are set as big 13-point favourites on the road in Detroit on Thursday. Despite seeing big point spreads like this, Milwaukee is also very profitable at 31-23 against the spread.

And if you were wondering what the odds are that this one ends in a draw too, it’s set at a whopping +1700.
