Florida 5 @ Tampa Bay 3 | 04/17 | 11:00 PM UTC

Florida +140

WIN

ANALYSIS: Tampa Bay defeated the Panthers in overtime despite getting outshot 38-19 on Thursday. The Lightning have been outshot in four of their past five games. The Panthers are ranked No. 6 in shot differential (+170) this season. Tampa Bay is still without Steve Stamkos, and the Lightning have a revenge game against Carolina on deck. I like the road team in this spot.

+835 10-2 IN LAST 12 NHL ML PICKS
+290 3-1 IN LAST 4 FLA ML PICKS

Tampa Bay 6 @ N.Y. Yankees 3 | 04/17 | 5:05 PM UTC

N.Y. Yankees -105

LOSS

ANALYSIS: In his last start (also against the Rays), Jordan Montgomery permitted four runs on five hits and two walks over five-plus innings. Tyler Glasnow is coming off his best outing of his career with 14 strikeouts against Texas. The Yankees committed three errors yesterday, and Tampa Bay is 0-2 against lefthanded starters this season. Take the Yankees.

+75 3-2 IN LAST 5 MLB ML PICKS

Cleveland 3 @ Cincinnati 10 | 04/16 | 11:10 PM UTC

Cincinnati -105

WIN

ANALYSIS: The Indians are coming off a four-game series against a division rival. The Reds return home after a 2-4 road trip and had a day off on Thursday. The Reds are 1-0 this season after losing two in a row. The Reds have a +19 run differential while the Indians are +10 so far this season. Light play on the home team.

+75 3-2 IN LAST 5 MLB ML PICKS

N.Y. Islanders 1 @ Boston 4 | 04/15 | 11:00 PM UTC

Boston -120

WIN

ANALYSIS: The Islanders are 5-0 against Boston this season with the past two games going into overtime/shootout. The Bruins have outshot New York in three of the five games. The Bruins are ranked No. 3 in shot differential (+183) and should be pumped up for this one. Boston is ranked No. 1 in face-off win percentage. The Islanders are coming off a two-game series with the rival New York Rangers. Seems like a good fade spot, especially since New York has been off since playing on Sunday. Take the Bruins!

+835 10-2 IN LAST 12 NHL ML PICKS
+70 2-1 IN LAST 3 BOS ML PICKS

Washington 123 @ Sacramento 111 | 04/15 | 2:00 AM UTC

Sacramento +2

LOSS

ANALYSIS: The Wizards conclude their long road trip against a team that's desperate for a win. Wrong team favored. Take the hungry host.

+90 2-1 IN LAST 3 NBA ATS PICKS
