Best NHL Pick: Washington Capitals ML (-118) vs. New York Rangers, 7 p.m ET
The Rangers have lost their last two games and will be playing their third game in four nights against a Washington team that is looking to put the rest of the East Division behind them. New York is averaging under 30 shots per game and will have a tough time if they lose the lead early coming back after almost doing it on Sunday. The Capitals are the hottest team in the NHL and will not let these two points slip by them.
Best NHL Pick: New Jersey Devils vs. Boston Bruins Under 5.5 Goals (-138), 7 p.m ET
All five previous meetings between these two teams have gone under the total for an average of three goals per game. In their last 10 games, Boston has a goals for average of 1.2 goals per game and a goals against average of 1.7 goals per game. All signs point to the under in this one; take the under 5.5 goals.
Best College Basketball Pick: USC Trojans vs. Gonzaga Bulldogs -8.5 (-110), 7:15 p.m ET
The Zags have now covered in three straight tournament games. This Gonzaga team is going to get a true test against a talented and long USC opponent, but their advantages on the perimeter are great enough to see them through to the next round. USC is a strong team but they are not built to play catchup. Take Gonzaga.
Best NBA Pick: Orlando Magic vs. Los Angeles Clippers -11.5 (-106), 10 p.m ET
In the two games since the Vucevic trade, the Magic have had game totals of 105 and 93. With the level of defense that they will be taking on they will most likely be held under 100 points which is not likely to be enough to keep this one competitive. The Clippers are too deep and too talented, so back them to cover.
