Wise n' Shine: What you need to know to bet better on Tuesday, June 7
Welcome to another terrific Tuesday of sports. The brooms were out last night as the Colorado Avalanche completed a sweep in their series against the Edmonton Oilers to punch a ticket to the Stanley Cup Finals. The Rangers and Lightning will continue their battle to join them tonight and we also have a big MLB slate, so let’s get straight to making your next bet better!
About Last Night
Avs clinch series in overtime
The Oilers led 3-1 and 4-2 during Game 4 against the Avalanche, but Colorado came through to win 6-5 in overtime and seal a 4-0 series win. FanDuel Sportsbook now has the Avalanche as -210 favorites for the Stanley Cup, with the Lightning and Rangers both at +400.
Low-scoring day in MLB
A small 6-game Monday MLB slate was further reduced when the Rangers vs Guardians game was postponed, and only 7 teams managed to score a run as there were 3 shutouts in the 5 games! The Reds beat the D-Backs 7-0, the Blue Jays beat the Royals 8-0 and the Red Sox beat the Angels 1-0. The Mariners took down the Astros 7-4 and the Mets beat the Padres 11-5 in the other games.
All eyes on the champions
The Tampa Bay Lightning just avoided falling into a 0-3 hole against the Rangers in Game 3, but they need another home win in Game 4, which is on ESPN at 8:00 pm ET tonight. Check out today’s Rangers vs Lightning preview.
16 MLB games today
We have an expanded 16-game MLB slate today as the Rangers and Guardians are playing a doubleheader, with the first game at 3:10 pm ET. Dodgers vs White Sox is on TBS at 8:10 pm ET. Check out today’s MLB game previews.
Best Bet of the Day
Over 7.5 runs in Colorado Rockies vs San Francisco Giants
9:45 pm ET
The Giants are the second-most profitable team for overs this season. The last time they played at home the series had games with 16, 25 and 12 total runs. We need only 8 for an over tonight, which should be no issue. Colorado is just behind San Francisco as the fourth most-profitable team for overs. The Rockies have had the worst bullpen for quite some time, and the Giants haven’t been far behind. They just had a day off, but the relief pitching quality is still not high enough to overcome the bats in this game. Read our full game preview for Rockies vs Giants.
