The NHL Trade Deadline came and while there was a lot of movement, there weren’t any major blockbuster deals. That has left the Stanley Cup odds largely unchanged at the top of the board. The Tampa Bay Lightning remain favourites at +500, followed by the Boston Bruins, St. Louis Blues, Vegas Golden Knights, and Washington Capitals. That said, you have to look a long way down the odds board to find the Canadian squads. The Edmonton Oilers check in a t+1600, while the Toronto Maple Leafs have nearly fallen off the map after opening the season among the top three. They’re currently pegged at +2200. The Calgary Flames are at +2800 and the Winnipeg Jets are at +4000.
This week on Hockey Night in Canada, the Flames visit the Lightning for a 4 p.m. ET tilt, the Canucks visit the Maple Leafs and the Jets are in Edmonton for the late game.
The Toronto Raptors fell to the league-leading Milwaukee Bucks on Tuesday night in what end up being a preview of the Eastern Conference final. However, the Raps still sit second overall in the East and are first in the Atlantic at 42-16 straight up, 33-25 against the spread. Toronto hosts the Charlotte Hornets on Friday before visiting the Denver Nuggets on Sunday evening. LeBron James and the Los Angeles Lakers visit Zion Williamson and the New Orleans Pelicans on Sunday evening too. James and the Lakers dropped Zion’s Pelicans 118-109 as 7.5-point favourites on Tuesday. The Lakers are at +290 to win the NBA Championship, just behind Milwaukee at +225. The Raps check in fourth at +1200.
Spring training is already in full swing and you’ll find daily lines under Sports Interaction’s Baseball Exhibition section. The Los Angeles Dodgers and New York Yankees are co-World Series favourites at +350, with the Houston Astros following at +600. The Toronto Blue Jays are big longshots at +500 and their season win total is pegged at over/under 75.5 victories. Early action is on the club to go over that number.
March Madness is just around the corner and it looks like the tournament could be a toss-up this year. Kansas is the favourite at +700, but Baylor (+950), Gonzaga (+1000), Duke (+1200) and Louisville (+1400) all have strong squads. Keep an eye on Dayton (+1500) and San Diego State (+1600) too.
