What’s Happening Today in Sports Betting?

NBA Playoffs Continue Tuesday

The 76ers beat the Raptors again on Monday night by a 112-97 count. Now the series flips north of the border, where Philadelphia will be without Matisse Thybulle, who is not fully vaccinated. Game 3 is on Wednesday. Golden State rolled over Denver in a 126-106 thrashing to go up 2-0. The Mavericks gutted out a big win to even the series up at 1-1 and will hope to get Luka Doncic back for Game 3 on Thursday.

Here’s the Tuesday schedule of Game 2s:

7:30 p.m. ET – Hawks vs. Heat (-7, 219)
8:30 p.m. ET – Timberwolves vs. Grizzlies (-7, 241)
10 p.m. ET – Pelicans vs. Suns (-9.5, 221.5)

Steve Makinen: OurPoint Spread Weekly editor offers betting trends for the first round with some surprising angles, like this one: Entering the 2022 playoffs, teams that lost the previous game by 3 points or fewer have bounced back with a 31-8 SU and 28-9-2 ATS (75.7%) record since 2014. In the line range of + 5 to -5, these teams are on an amazing 20-1 SU and 17-2-2 ATS (89.5%) surge. Read more trends from Steve HERE.

10 Games on the NHL Card

Favorites are winning at any price, so the sportsbooks have had to go bigger and bigger with their odds. The Maple Leafs are in the -450 range against the Flyers and the Lightning are more than -500 against the Red Wings. We’ve got several other -200 or higher favorites as well on Tuesday night.

NHL favorites went 20-0 from Friday-Sunday and we had two favorites of -300 win on Monday, but the Golden Knights ended the favorite streak with an ugly home loss to the Devils.

Current Stanley Cup favorites at DraftKings:
Colorado Avalanche +350
Florida Panthers +550
Calgary Flames, Toronto Maple Leafs +900
Tampa Bay Lightning +1100
Carolina Hurricanes +1200
Pittsburgh Penguins, New York Rangers, Boston Bruins, Minnesota Wild +1600
