"Vegas On Ice" -- Pointspreads' Daily Betting Notes: Friday, Mar. 5th
Stat of the Day: The Vegas Golden Knights have won four straight and play San Jose Sharks tonight, who have lost 6 of their last 9. The Sharks have surrendered 23 goals in their last 5 games and own an NHL's worst 3.8 goals allowed per game.
Friday's wagering menu takes place mostly outside on the diamond and inside on the ice.
Major League Baseball is nearing the completion of the first week of exhibition games, so far without any major COVID-related incidents. Today, there are a whopping 14 games on the diamond. These pre-season games can be wildly unpredictable to bet on, especially with some unusual new rules in effect, but at least there's plenty of action for daytime gamblers.
The NHL offers just 6 games on Friday night. All the Canadian teams are off for the day.
The NBA is dark today, in preparation for a busy weekend including the All-Star game and related events. For those who like wagering on things wildly unredictable, the numbers are up on several props on various competitions.
Note the BET OF THE DAY lost by a point last night (Celtics -8 won by only 7) and is now on a 4-1 run and in the last month has gone a red hot 17-8 in free daily selections.
