West Virginia -2.5 (-110) 1u
TCU is coming off three massive, top 10 wins in a row. This positive swing has to come back to earth for the horned frogs. That happens today in Morgantown. The Mountaineers have been struggling as of late, while TCU has been surging. That begs the question... Why is West Virginia favored by 2.5 points? West Virginia gets the job done today to leave a positive taste in their mouth heading into the Big-12 tournament.
UCLA -7.5 (-110) 1u
UCLA has underperformed this season to their pre-season expectation. They are not the best team in the Pac-12, that is Arizona. However, they can prove to be the second-best team in the conference with a revenge win against USC tonight. In the battle of the L.A. schools, expect UCLA to start fast and keep their foot on the gas all game. Take the Bruins and the points today.
Chicago Blackhawks vs Philadelphia Flyers
Chicago has either allowed or scored over 4 goals in 8 of their last 10 contests. The Flyers have done the same in 7 of their last ten contests primarily with their best goaltender in net. In this contest, both will be sporting their backup goaltenders. Lankinen for Chicago has a 3.53 GAA and Jones for Philadelphia has a 3.51 GAA . If this isn’t over 5.5 I don’t know what to say. Lol.
Over 5.5 ( -1.33) 2 units
Seattle Kraken vs Washington Capitals
Quite simply, Washington can not play in front of Samsonov and he won’t be playing in the net today. With Vanecek in goal, they allow just over two goals a game and with Samsonov well over three. Seattle has only scored over 2 goals three times in their last ten games. After a big win against Carolina, I see the Capitals keeping it rolling here as they play a more confident game in front of Vanecek.
Capitals In Regulation (-1.35) 1 unit
Portland vs Minnesota
Minnesota is averaging 131 ppg in their last 3 games. And Portland is giving up 126 ppg. In their last 3 games. In addition, Minnesota is 8-2 in their last 10 games.
Pick: over Minnesota 124 TT (1 unit)
