Pucking the trends: This week's best NHL bets
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Every week, we update you on who's hot, who's not and situational betting spots in the National Hockey League.

HOT TEAM: Pittsburgh Penguins

No one is about to say they don’t need him, or that it doesn’t matter when he returns, but Pittsburgh is doing fine these days without Sidney Crosby. The Penguins hammered Colorado 5-1 on Saturday and take a five-game win streak into Monday’s date with the Coyotes.

Catching the Rangers for the Atlantic Division lead, and the No. 1 seed in the Eastern Conference, might be a bit of a stretch, but Evgeni Malkin and Co. have a shot. Monday's tilt begins a four-game homestand that features three other winnable games: Toronto, Florida and Boston.

Malkin, through Saturday, had 38 goals and 80 points. James Neal and Jordan Staal have also come up big in Crosby's absence, combining for 51 goals.

They are good, they are hot, and Crosby or not, the Penguins will be one of those playoff teams that no one wants to face.

COLD TEAM: Montreal Canadiens

A bit of an easy target, for sure, but when you lose to Toronto, 3-1, on Hockey Night in Canada, with all that's hovering over the Maple Leafs these days, you're going to end up in this space more times than not.

The Canadiens have lost six of their last seven, and the defeats weren't exactly to Murderers’ Row. Montreal has dropped decisions to New Jersey, Dallas, Washington, Florida and Tampa Bay during this skid, and the setback to the Maple Leafs was demoralizing, even for the Eastern Conference's worst team.

OVER PLAY: Tampa Bay Lightning

Don't tell Steven Stamkos the Lightning are out of the jumbled Eastern Conference playoff race. Several teams at the bottom of the totem pole have struggled through the late winter, but Tampa Bay is sizzling at the right time, and may even rally to win the division.

Stamkos scored two goals on Saturday night, leading the Lightning to a 4-3 win over the Carolina Hurricanes. He now has 47 goals, which leads the league, and Tampa Bay was just four points out of the Southeast Division lead Sunday morning, and two points out of the eighth playoff berth in the East.

The Lightning have won seven of their last 10 headed into Tuesday's date with Ottawa, and they are clearly back to playing up-and-down hockey along the way. That is music to totals players, of course, because Tampa Bay has gone over in five of the last six games, and is now 41-23-1 over for the season.

UNDER PLAY: Anaheim Ducks

Though the Capitals may not want to admit it, Bruce Boudreau can coach a little bit. And though Anaheim likely won’t mount a furious rally and snare the No. 8 seed in the Western Conference, the Ducks have stemmed the tide, thanks to their new coach.

They lost to rival Los Angeles, 4-2, on Saturday night, but despite their awful start the Ducks are 28-28-10 headed into Monday’s game vs. Edmonton. Not bad, considering where they came from. Right wing Corey Perry has 31 goals and 52 points.

But the biggest difference in the Boudreau Era is on the back line, as the Ducks have combined solid goaltending with smart defense. And that has translated to unders. Tons of them.

Saturday’s over versus the Kings snapped a 10-game under streak, including four games where they allowed one goal or less. And for the season, Anaheim is a stunning 25-39-2 over, a delight to under bettors.

SURVEYING THE SCHEDULE:

** March came in like a lion for the Bruins, who will seven games in the first 11 days. Not easy opponents, either, for the Stanley Cup champions. This run, when it's said and done, will have featured dates with the Rangers, Penguins and surging Sabres.

** Detroit can take a bit of a breath this week, so expect some fresh legs from the Red Wings moving forward. After Sunday’s meeting with the Blackhawks, Detroit plays just one game in the next four days -- a rare visit to Philadelphia on Tuesday.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Ice picks: Monday's best NHL bets
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Phoenix Coyotes at Pittsburgh Penguins (-165, 5.5)

Pittsburgh has averaged 4.6 goals during its five game win streak.

Phoenix knows firsthand how dangerous the Pens can be. It’s allowed 10 goals in its last two meetings with Pittsburgh – both losses – and has given up a total of nine goals in its last two outings overall – both losses.

The Coyotes have been slow out of the blocks in recent games, getting outscored 10-2 in the first period over the past six outings. That includes a 4-0 count in those last two defeats.

The over is 7-2 in Pittsburgh's last nine home games, and 13-3-2 in the Pens' last 18 games following a win.

Pick: Over


Buffalo Sabres at Winnipeg Jets (-130, 5)

Ryan Miller is peaking at just the right time. After a dismal start to the season, the former Vezina Trophy winner has righted the ship by helping the Buffalo Sabres collect 13 of a possible 14 points (6-0-1) in their last seven games.

After Miller posted back-to-back shutouts, coach Lindy Ruff's club continued its winning ways by posting a 5-3 triumph win at Vancouver on Saturday.

Winnipeg made a statement in its bid to win the Southeast Division by cruising to a 7-0 victory over Florida on Thursday. Evander Kane collected his first four-point performance of his career by scoring twice and setting up a pair of goals. Kane is now riding a career-best eight-game point streak.

With both teams playing superbly, the edge goes to the home squad. The home team is 5-1 in the last six meetings, and the favorite is 6-1 in the last seven meetings.

Pick: Jets

Thunder look to roll Mavs at home Monday

DALLAS MAVERICKS (22-16)

at OKLAHOMA CITY THUNDER (29-8)


Tip-off: Monday, 8:05 p.m. ET
Line: Oklahoma City -7, Total: 195.5

The Thunder look to extend their home SU winning streak to 12 when they host rival Dallas on Monday night.

Oklahoma City is coming off a disappointing road loss at Atlanta. But the Thunder have been nearly unstoppable at home all year, going 15-1 SU (9-7 ATS). The Mavs, meanwhile, have struggled to find their way since the All-Star break, going 1-3 SU and extending their ATS losing streak to five. But they are 5-0 ATS (4-1 SU) in their past five trips to Oklahoma City, which includes two playoff road wins last season. Can the Thunder beat the slumping Mavs by a wide margin? For the answer, connect to the NBA Three at Three Pass for ATS picks covering all the marquee NBA games each day. NBA Pass continues its strong run, going 28-17 ATS (62%) since Feb. 13.

Dallas finally got a big night out of PF Dirk Nowitzki (19.7 PPG) on Saturday, as he scored a season-high 40 in a 102-96 win over Utah in a game that wasn’t as close as the final scored would indicate (they led by as many as 23 in the fourth quarter before the Jazz closed the gap in garbage time). Sixth man Jason Terry (14.6 PPG) also broke out of a mini-slump in that game as well, scoring 22 on 8-for-15 shooting in his first 20-point game since Feb. 1.

But Dallas has struggled to shoot on the road all year, hitting just 31.3% of its threes and averaging 91.5 PPG. In their past three road games, all SU and ATS losses, they’ve averaged a mere 91.3 PPG. However, head coach Rick Carlisle usually gets his team up for the big road games, going 58-34 ATS (63.0%, +20.6 Units) when playing teams with winning records on the road in his time with Dallas. The FoxSheets have another three-star trend siding with the Mavs:

DALLAS is 28-9 ATS (75.7%, +18.1 Units) as a road underdog over the last 2 seasons. The average score was DALLAS 94.8, OPPONENT 94.3 - (Rating = 3*).

The Thunder return home after an East Coast road swing that saw them win SU and ATS in Philadelphia and Orlando but lose in an upset at Atlanta on Saturday. SF Kevin Durant (28.2 PPG on 50.8% FG) and PG Russell Westbrook (23.6 PPG) have picked up where they left off so far after the All-Star break. Durant averaged 32.0 PPG and hit 45.8% of his threes during their East coast swing, while Westbrook added 25.3 PPG and 6.0 APG. Durant has been unstoppable in home games, averaging 27.1 PPG while hitting 56.3% of his field goals and 42.6% of his threes.

Oklahoma City has also been a very good bet when well-rested: They’re 19-5 SU and 15-9 ATS with at least a day of rest this season. The FoxSheets provide this three-star trend working against the Mavs:

Play Against - Road underdogs of 3.5 to 9.5 points (DALLAS) - poor foul drawing team - attempting <=24 free throws/game, in March games. (88-44 over the last 5 seasons, 66.7%, +39.6 units. Rating = 3*).

Pacers, Bulls look to extend win streaks Monday

INDIANA PACERS (23-12)

at CHICAGO BULLS (31-8)


Tip-off: Monday, 8:05 p.m. ET
Line: Chicago -7, Total: 187

Two sizzling hot teams each search for a seventh straight win on Monday night when the Bulls host the Pacers.

Chicago is a stellar 14-2 SU (8-8 ATS) at home this season, outscoring opponents by 10.9 PPG at United Center. But one of those two SU defeats was to Indiana back on Jan. 25. In that 95-90 Indiana win, Bulls star Derrick Rose had just two points in the fourth quarter. But Rose has been on fire lately with 28.8 PPG, 30 assists and only nine turnovers in his past four games. And before that January loss, the Bulls had dominated the Pacers at home, winning nine straight home meetings (6-3 ATS) and going 18-3 SU (14-6-1 ATS) in the past 21 matchups at United Center. The pick here is for CHICAGO to eventually pull away and cover the moderate spread.

The FoxSheets have another strong trend backing the Bulls:

Play Against - Underdogs of 3.5 to 9.5 points (INDIANA) – well-rested team - playing only their 2nd game in 5 days, in March games. (68-34 over the last 5 seasons.) (66.7%, +30.6 units. Rating = 2*).

The Pacers have not won seven straight games in a single season since Feb. 28-March 12, 2004. But they have been crushing opponents by 17.5 PPG during this six-game run, scoring 104.0 PPG and allowing just 86.5 PPG. Indiana won its last game rather easily in New Orleans, 102-84, leading by 25 points after three quarters. That improved the team’s road record to 12-8 (11-9 ATS) despite an offense averaging just 94.1 PPG on 42.3% FG away from home this season.

When Indiana shocked Chicago on its home floor six weeks ago, Danny Granger (18.3 PPG) had 22 points and nine boards while Roy Hibbert (13.5 PPG, 9.6 RPG) added 20 with eight rebounds. Granger has averaged 20+ points in each of the past four regular seasons against the Bulls, scoring 23.7 PPG with 7.0 RPG in these 10 meetings. He was also the only Pacers player that averaged more than 12.0 PPG in last year’s five-game playoff series loss to Chicago, scoring 21.6 PPG.

The Bulls have the NBA’s second-stingiest defense at 88.2 PPG allowed, and have been even more suffocating at home this year (85.4 PPG on 41% FG). When they lost that January meeting to the Pacers, All-Star SF Luol Deng (15.6 PPG, 6.9 RPG) did not play because of a wrist injury. Although Deng is coming off a subpar performance in Sunday’s 96-91 win at Philadelphia (8 points on 3-of-11 FG, two rebounds in 43 minutes), he has enjoyed playing Indiana with 19.3 PPG and 9.0 RPG in eight meetings since 2009-10. Rose (22.8 PPG, 6.8 APG) was brilliant on Sunday, scoring a season-high 35 points and dishing out eight assists. Rose torched Indiana for 27.6 PPG in last year’s playoffs and has pumped in 28.8 PPG in the past four matchups in the regular season.

Jazz visit slumping Cavs on Monday


UTAH JAZZ (17-19)

at CLEVELAND CAVALIERS (13-22)


Tip-off: Monday, 7:05 p.m. ET
Line: Even, Total: 197

The Jazz look to reverse their road woes on Monday when they visit a Cleveland team that they’ve dominated in the post-LeBron era.

Utah is just 3-13 SU and 6-10 ATS on the road this year, and it has lost six straight road games SU (2-4 ATS). But the Jazz have cruised past the Cavs three times, SU and ATS, over the past two seasons. Can Utah pull out a rare road win on Monday? For the answer, connect to the NBA Three at Three Pass for ATS picks covering all the marquee NBA games each day. NBA Pass continues its strong run, going 28-17 ATS (62%) since Feb. 13.

The Jazz have continued with their drastically different home and road splits so far in the second half. They cruised past Houston and even scored a stunning upset of Miami at home. But they’ve also lost at Sacramento and at Dallas, a team that was mired in a horrific slump leading up to that game. They’ve struggled desperately to defend away from home all year, allowing 101.8 PPG including 100-plus in each of their past five road games. They have failed to defend the three-point line, allowing 39.0% shooting from behind the arc and 47.0% shooting overall.

Utah has managed to cover in each of its past three games overall, though the road cover in Dallas on Saturday was quite misleading (the 7½-point spread was large considering the Mavs’ recent struggles and injury problems), as the Jazz still trailed by as many as 23 in the fourth quarter before dominating end of the Mavs’ bench during garbage time in a 102-96 loss.

Offensively, the Jazz are still built around the low-post tandem of PF Paul Millsap (15.7 PPG, 9.0 RPG) and C Al Jefferson (18.5 PPG, 9.3 RPG). But their perimeter players are contributing more. Sixth man C.J. Miles (9.9 PPG) has heated up nicely since the All-Star break, averaging 16.8 PPG and shooting 41.2% from behind the arc. They’re also getting better play from PG Devin Harris (9.7 PPG, 4.6 APG), who’s averaging 14.3 PPG on 49% FG (42% threes) and 5.0 APG since coming back from the break. Since moving into the starting lineup just before the break, SF Josh Howard (8.5 PPG) is averaging 13.3 PPG on 47.9% shooting. The FoxSheets have a strong trend working against Cleveland:

Play Against - Home underdogs (CLEVELAND) - extremely tired team - playing their 5th game in 7 days, in March games. (59-28 since 1996, 67.8%, +28.2 units. Rating = 2*).

The young Cavs have hit a bit of a wall of late. They’ve dropped five in a row SU and have lost six of eight ATS. Ten of their past 12 games have been played at home, and they went just 4-6 SU and 3-6-1 ATS in those games.

They’ve struggled badly on the defensive end since the All-Star break, giving up 104.8 PPG including 100-plus points in their past three games, as the absence of C Anderson Varejao (10.8 PPG, 11.5 RPG) has left them devoid of a big man who can defend away from the basket.

PG Kyrie Irving (18.5 PPG, 5.2 APG) continues to carry Cleveland offensively, averaging 22.0 PPG on 52.2% FG and 5.3 APG in three games since the All-Star break. He should have a field day against this Utah team that can’t guard the pick-and-roll when Jefferson is on the floor. While Irving has been a bit of a one-man show all year, SF Antawn Jamison (17.7 PPG, 6.6 RPG) showed some signs of life with a 29-point, nine-rebound performance in a three-point loss at Washington on Saturday. The FoxSheets provide this strong coaching trend backing the Cavs:

Tyrone Corbin is 3-13 ATS (18.8%, -11.3 Units) after a loss by 6 points or less as the coach of UTAH. The average score was UTAH 95.3, OPPONENT 103.1 - (Rating = 1*).

Injuries that shouldn’t be overlooked

The Hornets’ Trevor Ariza (11.9 ppg, 5.8 rpg, 3.4 apg) is expected to return for Monday’s game against the Trail Blazers after missing two straight with an illness. Portland’s Marcus Camby (9.1 rpg, 1.5 bpg) also is expected to play despite suffering a chin laceration and sprained neck while diving for a loose ball in Saturday’s loss to Minnesota.

Game of the day

Dallas Mavericks at Oklahoma City Thunder (-7. 195)

Notable quotable

"We have a chance to be better than we were last year, but we’re going to be a little different kind of team. Last year I feel like especially early on we were having to win games, 6-4, 7-5, and things like that. Whereas this year, I feel like we’re going to win a lot of games, 4-2, 3-2. We’re going to rely a little more on our starting rotation and our bullpen and the games are going to be a little more National League. I still feel like our offense is great. I think it’s solid. But I don’t think we’re going to have to out-slug other teams.” – Cardinals first baseman Lance Berkman.

Notes and tips

Michigan State freshman Branden Dawson tore his ACL in Sunday's 72-70 loss and is done for the season. Dawson, averaging 8.5 points and 4.6 rebounds, was guarding Ohio State's William Buford in the first half when he fell in the lane and grabbed his left knee. The Spartans next play Friday in the Big Ten tournament.

After completing a perfect regular season in the SEC, Kentucky coach John Calipari thanked ESPN for its commercial showing Indiana’s buzzer-beating shot to beat the Wildcats. “Every time they show it, our players get mad,” Calipari said. “They’ve done one of the greatest services for our program by having that advertisement.” The 30-1 Wildcats, whose only blemish came at Indiana, are heavy favorites to win the SEC tournament that starts Thursday.

Clemson senior swingman Tanner Smith suffered a concussion in Sunday’s 80-72 loss at Florida State. His status for Thursday’s ACC tournament opener was not immediately known. Perhaps the Tigers’ best all-around player, Smith averages 11.2 points, 5.2 rebounds and 4.1 assists.

Blackhawks captain Jonathan Toews missed Sunday’s game against the Red Wings, his seventh straight, and has been ruled out for Tuesday’s contest in St. Louis. A source told ESPN.com that Toews has a concussion and continues to work out off the ice in Chicago.

Armadillo: Monday's six-pack

Mets' top draft picks from 2002-7, guys who should be helping the big league club right about now......

2002-- Scott Kazmir, P-- Helped Rays get to World Series in

2008, is now looking for work after having ton of control problems.

2003-- Lastings Milledge, OF-- Overrated player got chance with three different big league clubs, has pretty much been a bust.

2004-- Philip Humber, P-- Like most pitchers from Rice, a disaster at the pro level.

2005-- Mike Pelfrey, P-- Still with Mets, should do better this year as the #3 or #4 starters. With Santana out, he was the ace-- yikes.

2006-- Kevin Mulvey, P-- Was in Arizona system last season.

2007-- Eddie Kunz, P-- Was in San Diego system last season.


*****************


Armadillo: Monday's List of 13: Wrapping up a sports Sunday.......

13) Holding the franchise scoring record for the Nets carries some weight, since Julius Erving played there; well, Deron Williams lit up the pathetic Bobcats for 57 points in New Jersey's 104-101 win Sunday in Charlotte, as Bobcats refused to double him on pick and roll, so he went nuts.

12) Rajan Rondo had 18 points, 17 rebounds, 20 assists, only the second guy in NBA history with a 15-15-15 triple double (Jason Kidd did it two times) as Boston beat the Knicks in overtime, 115-111.

11) Bad idea to go to Jiffy Lube on a Sunday; crying babies, old couples with hearing problems yelling at each other, pretty much total chaos.

10) Rhode Island fired basketball coach Jim Baron, who was 184-167 in 11 seasons at URI, 20-14 LY, 7-24 this year. Baron has to be paid for the last two years of his contract, but supposedly a private source is going to be used to pay off Baron's contract, which tells me the private source is who wanted Baron fired. Pretty sad; he's a good coach.

9) Golfer Tom Gillis is 43; he's had quite a career, playing professionally in 26 different countries. 26. Guy should write a book. When he birdied the 18th Sunday, he made himself an extra $160,000 by tying for second.

8) They said on the NASCAR race Sunday that the average car gets about 4.25 laps per gallon at the Phoenix Speedway, which is 1.6 miles long, so thats roughly 6.81 miles per gallon.

7) Speaking of gas, the price of gas at the corner of Fuller/Central near the world headquarters of ***************.com was $4.09 today; half a mile away, at corner of Wolf/Sand Creek, it was $3.95, down from the $4.05 it was at one point last week. 10 miles north on route 9 in Clifton Park, it is $3.81-- their gas musn't be as good as gas in Colonie. Greedy bastards.

6) Middle Tennessee won 25 games this year, was clearly the best team in the Sun Belt Conference, but they got beat in first game of the conference tournament, so that bracket is totally wide open, especially after UALR got beat by Western Kentucky. Tourney is now Denver's to lose. Very disappointing loss for a good Middle Tennessee team.

5) Guess the Georgia State win Saturday took lot out of George Mason-- they fell behind VCU 22-2, then 41-13, before making the final score little more respectable, losing by 10. You don't see lot of 22-2 scores in these conference tournaments, especially with a good team on short end.

4) Michigan State was up 24-9 on Ohio State, then up nine at half, before Buckeyes rallied in second half and ruined Spartans' Senior Day, 72-70.

3) Pac-12 is a mess; Stanford beat Cal, making Washington regular season champ; highest-rated Pac-12 team, heading into the conference tourney, is Cal, too high at #22, then strangely enough, UCLA at #43.

2) Golf announcers damn near swallowed their mikes as Eldrick Woods shot 62 Sunday; the whole sport needs Woods to be successful, so even opposing players should be rooting for him, to a degree. Just have feeling that he played well Sunday because he thought he had no shot to win, so he relaxed and did better. We'll see how he does this weekend at Doral.

1) So Tim Tebow was a guest preacher Sunday at the church in Las Vegas where the Tarkanians attend; you can't make this stuff up.
