Jeff Hochman burst onto the sports betting scene in the 1990s. Today he's one of the nation's most respected handicappers. "This is not a hobby of mine," Hochman says. "It's my business and I take it very seriously." The selective Hochman dominates multiple sports -- he went 14-6 (plus $740) in the 2021 college football season, for example -- but is perhaps best known for his NHL acumen. Over the past seven years, Hochman has hit over 60 percent of his NHL plays while returning healthy profits to those following him.

Kansas City 14 @ Colorado 10 | 05/14 | 12:40 AM UTC

Colorado -140

LOSS

ANALYSIS: The Rockies return home Friday after getting swept by San Francisco. The Royals will start Zack Greinke, who has struggled at Coors Field. And that's when he was throwing the mid-90s. I think the Rockies will feast on him. Kansas City is ranked No. 26 in OPS (on base+slugging) versus left-handed starters. Rockies starter Kyle Freeland has been great at home off a team loss in his career. Colorado is 5-0 in its past five home games against losing AL teams. Expect more of the same.

Toronto 3 @ Tampa Bay 4 | 05/12 | 11:30 PM UTC

Toronto 115

LOSS

ANALYSIS: It seems too easy just to take the Lightning after a loss. The Maple Leafs are the faster team, so let's take them to end the series. Tampa Bay looks gassed after playing all those games over the past three seasons. Take the road team.

Calgary 4 @ Dallas 1 | 05/10 | 1:30 AM UTC

Calgary -160

WIN

ANALYSIS: The Stars lead the series despite being outshot in all three games (96-69). During the regular season, Dallas allowed more shots than it took and owned a negative goal differential. The Stars scored an empty-net goal in their 4-2 victory in Game 3, which makes the game look more lopsided than it was. I still believe Calgary is, by far, the more talented team. Take the Flames.

Phoenix 94 @ Dallas 103 | 05/07 | 1:30 AM UTC

Dallas +1

WIN

ANALYSIS: The Suns shot the lights out (62.5%) from the field in Wednesday's victory. Phoenix is just 1-3 in game No. 3 of NBA playoff series of late. Dallas should be able to get better bench production at home. I think just one day rest instead of two benefits Dallas more. Take the hungry host!
