Here are the top sports betting trends for May 9:

NHL: Tampa Bay Lightning at Montreal Canadiens (7:00 p.m. ET)

Trend: Play on Montreal on the money line in Saturday games. The Canadiens are 19-3 (+14.2 units) this season.

For whatever reason, the Canadiens have owned the opposition on Saturdays. The Canadiens are favored in the -125 range for Game 5 as they look to extend the series following their 6-2 win in Game 4 on Thursday night. Tampa Bay was just 18-17-6 on the road during the regular season, though they have won four in a row on the road in the playoffs.

MLB: Houston Astros at Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim (9:05 p.m. ET)

Trend: Play on Houston using the money line in road games. The Astros are 11-3 (+10.32 units) this season.

The Astros suffered a setback last night against Jered Weaver, but they get right back at it tonight with Dallas Keuchel on the mound against Matt Shoemaker. The Astros are a virtual money line pick ‘em for this game with both teams lined between even money and -110. Houston has been a road warrior this season.

NBA: Atlanta Hawks at Washington Wizards (5:00 p.m. ET)

Trend: Play under in Atlanta games versus good offensive teams scoring 99 or more points per game. The under is 57-24 (+30.6 units) over the last two seasons.

The Hawks got a break when it was announced that John Wall had multiple fractures in his left hand that will keep him out of action for most, if not all, of this series. Wall may try to play through it, but it’s hard to see him being effective. Atlanta is now favored by 3.5 and the total has dropped down to 199.

MLB: Oakland Athletics at Seattle Mariners (9:10 p.m. ET)

Trend: Play over in Oakland games. The over is 22-8 (+14.3 units) this season.

The A’s just keep being a cash cow on the over. Last night’s game stayed under by a half run, but runs could certainly be in the forecast for Saturday as Jesse Hahn squares off with JA Happ. Oakland’s offense is underrated because they have a lack of big names in the lineup and have not gotten the respect of the oddsmakers.

MLB: Minnesota Twins at Cleveland Indians (4:10 p.m. ET)

Trend: Play over in Cleveland games on the total when playing a team with a winning record. The over is 11-1 (+10.05 units) this season.

Friday night’s game flew over the total once again. Saturday’s game has a major adjustment from the oddsmakers as it has a total of 9.5. Bruce Chen takes the ball for the Indians against Phil Hughes. This is definitely a big adjustment from oddsmakers, who have been burned by Indians overs all season long.

NBA: Golden State Warriors at Memphis Grizzlies (8:00 p.m. ET)

Trend: Play under in Memphis games against good offensive teams scoring 99 or more points per game in the second half of the season. The under is 24-8 (+15.2 units) this season.

The Grizzlies win by slowing the game down and that’s how they were so successful against good teams this season. That was their goal in Game 2 and it worked out favorably. With a lot of rest prior to Game 3, both of these teams should be ready to do what they do best. The total seems very low at 196.

NBA: Atlanta Hawks at Washington Wizards (5:00 p.m. ET)

Trend: Play against Atlanta using the money line in road games versus good offensive teams scoring 99 or more points per game in the second half of the season. The Hawks are 6-22 (-19.55 units) over the last three seasons.

The Hawks and Wizards are tied at 1-1 entering Game 3 and the Hawks have historically struggled in matchups like this. They are down over 19 units against quality offenses on the road late in the season. John Wall’s absence has caused a big move in the line, but the Hawks were an underdog before the severity of his injury came to light.

NBA: Golden State Warriors at Memphis Grizzlies (8:00 p.m. ET)

Trend: Play on Memphis using the money line in games against Pacific Division opponents. The Grizzlies are 44-18 (+25.7 units) over the last three seasons.

The Grizzlies play good defense and the Pacific Division plays good offense, without much defense. It’s been a recipe for success for the Grizzlies, even with some of the travel hardships that come with playing teams out west. The gameplan was clear from the Grizzlies in Game 2 and the low total for Game 3 suggests that they can have similar success.

MLB: San Diego Padres at Arizona Diamondbacks (8:10 p.m. ET)

Trend: Play against San Diego in road games against a team with a losing record. The Padres are 10-22 (-21.25 units) over the last two seasons.

Tyson Ross takes the ball for the Padres against Chase Anderson and early money on this game has come in on Anderson and the home team. Both teams are swinging it very well in the early going this season, but the Padres have had some troubles on the road, especially against weak opponents.

MLB: Texas Rangers at Tampa Bay Rays (6:10 p.m. ET)

Trend: Play on Texas on the money line against a team with a winning record. The Rangers are 6-1 (+7.62 units) this season.

The Rangers suffered their first loss of the season against a team with a winning record on Saturday night when Nate Karns and the Rays knocked off Yovani Gallardo. Up until that point, the Rangers were showing over eight units of profit against good teams. They’ll try to get back in the win column against Jake Odorizzi on Saturday night.

MLB: Kansas City Royals at Detroit Tigers (1:05 p.m. ET)

Trend: Play on Kansas City using the money line in road games against a team with a winning record. The Royals are 25-15 (+14.85 units) over the last two seasons.

The Royals dropped a tough one in walk-off fashion on Friday night to open up this season, but they have been a very good road team against quality competition over the last two seasons. Jeremy Guthrie faces off against Anibal Sanchez and the Royals are an underdog in the +140 range.
