Suns at Pelicans, Pistons at Heat, Nets at Magic, Bruins at Blackhawks, Stars at Maple Leafs, Ducks at Rangers
Tuesday around the NBA and NHL will feature some star-studded matchups. That also means a great opportunity to cash in with a winning bet!
The Phoenix Suns and the New Orleans Pelicans meet on Tuesday in a game that will be of interest to some. The Suns are continuing to adjust to life after Chris Paul getting hurt and the Pelicans have adjusted their lineups. The Suns are 54-14 while the Pelicans are 28-40. Look for the Suns star power to shine through and allow Devin Booker to have a big night. Take the Suns as the -5.5 favorite.
The Detroit Pistons travel to face off with the Miami Heat this evening in what should be a game that is over early on. The Pistons are 18-50 on the year while the Heat are 45-24 on the season. This has all the makings of a tough game for the Pistons as they have to hop on a plane for a Tuesday night game. Look for the Heat to come out hot behind Jimmy Butler and cruise to a win. Take the Heat and the -13.0 points.
The Brooklyn Nets hit the road on Tuesday to take on the Orlando Magic in what will be another game that might get out of hand. The Nets are 35-33 while the Magic are 18-51. Don’t let those records fool you as the Nets are very good when at full strength. They should be close to full strength tonight as both Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving should be suiting up. Look closely for this game to be one that gets out of hand early. Take the Nets to cover the 9.5 point spread.
Now let’s take a look at the action on the ice.
The Boston Bruins travel to Chicago to take on the Blackhawks this evening as the Bruins look to try to climb toward a top seed. The Bruins are 36-18-5 so far this season while the Blackhawks have struggled and sit at 22-30-8 on the season. This is going to be a bit closer of a game than many think as the Blackhawks are winners of two of their last three. These teams did just meet and the Bruins came out on top, however. Boston has been playing well as of late but the Blackhawks have not been terrible on their home ice this season. I would look for the Blackhawks to give the Bruins a run. Take the Blackhawks +1.5 in this one.
The Dallas Stars travel across the border into Canada to take on the Toronto Maple Leafs in what might be the game of the night among all sports. The Stars are 32-22-3 this year while the Maple Leafs are 37-17-5 on the season. Look for this game to be very exciting with a lot of action on the ice. Both of these teams have lost their last two contests so getting back on track tonight will be huge for both teams. I look for the Stars to cover as the Maple Leafs just have not been good ATS. Take the Stars +1.5 on the puck line.
The Anaheim Ducks are traveling across the country for a Tuesday evening showdown with the New York Rangers. The trip could not have come at a worse time as the Ducks are fading as they have lost four games in a row. With a long trip upcoming I don’t think things are going to get better in the short term for them. The Rangers had a quiet stretch and then exploded for seven goals in their last game. Look for the Rangers to be able to replicate that while the Ducks are kind of hurting themselves this year. Take the Rangers -1.5 in this one.
Enjoy and best of luck!!
