Today's Best US Sports Bets & Tips

Today's US Sports Picks

Published 13:00 (UK time) Thursday 26th May 2022

Carolina Hurricanes Moneyline (60 minutes) Rangers @ Hurricanes - NHL 23/20
Connor McDavid Under 4.5 Shots Flames @ Oilers - NHL 7/10
Warriors To Win, Curry Over 3.5 Made 3s, Doncic Over 29.5 Points Mavericks @ Warriors – NBA 39/20

Pick 1: Hurricanes Moneyline (60 minutes)
Rangers @ Hurricanes - NHL - 19:05 (ET)
Current Best Price 23/20 | 2.15 | +115

The New York Rangers have pulled the series level after two momentous wins at Madison Square Garden. This series has now gone with home advantage for each of the first four games, leaving it effectively as a best-of-3, with the Hurricanes hosting games five and seven. The Rangers have become progressively more and more solid as the playoffs have rolled on, allowing just six goals in the last four games, after allowing nine in the previous three.

One of the main reasons for that has been the exceptional goaltending of Igor Shesterkin, who has five consecutive games with a .920 save percentage or higher. Relying on your goaltender to drag you through the playoffs is a risky strategy, however, and any dip in the Russian netminder’s form will be catastrophic for the Rangers. Historically, teams in Carolina’s situation (2-2 in the series, having gone W-W-L-L) are a remarkable 57-21 in game five, and there is no reason to expect to see that trend bucked this evening.

Pick 2: Connor McDavid Under 4.5 Shots
Flames @ Oilers - NHL - 21:35 (ET)
Current Best Price 7/10 | 1.70 | -143

The Edmonton Oilers stand on the brink of the Western Conference finals, after blowing away the Calgary Flames for three successive games. Game 5 takes the series back to Calgary, with the home team and fans knowing that there is no more room to slip up. The Flames, understandably, are the bookies pick for tonight, with the odds implying that they have a 60 per cent chance of winning.

This implied advantage seems to tie in nicely with the history books, which show that teams in Edmonton’s situation are 29-49 in Game 5. With that in mind, it might be worth anticipating a Calgary surge tonight, perhaps stifling some of the offensive abilities of Connor McDavid. Edmonton’s number 97 has “only” managed to exceed four shots on goal in four of his last 18 games, indicating that the value here, once again, is in backing the under.

Pick 3: Warriors to win, Curry over 3.5 made 3s, Doncic over 29.5 points
Mavericks @ Warriors - NBA - 21:00 (ET)
Current Best Price 39/20 | 2.95 | +195

The Dallas Mavericks were once again grateful to Luka Doncic for putting on another superb performance to keep this Western Conference finals series alive. Doncic delivered on our pick of over 52.5 PTS/REB/AST combined which included 30 points in the 119-109 Game 4 win to take the series back to San Francisco where the Warriors are 8-0 in the playoffs.

Stephy Curry hasn’t had to be at his very best in this series for Golden State, but on his day, he can pull out a monster performance, especially from beyond the arc. Curry has landed 58 three-pointers in the postseason already and back on home court, he will be looking to add to that impressive total.

We’re backing the Warriors to remain unbeaten by the bay and book their place in the NBA Finals and from a player point of view, we expect Doncic to score 30 points or more for the fourth time in this series and for Curry to make four or more three-pointers.
