Betting Stat of the Day:  The Philadelphia 76ers are the NBA's hottest team.  They've won 10 of their last 11 games straight up, and have gone 9-2 against-the-spread in those contests, including three straight wins on the road.  They're underdogs tonight.

Bet of the Day Update:  Our BET OF THE DAY is currently on a brutal stretch, going just 3 wins and 7 losses over the past 10 plays.  Nonetheless, we do want to be transparent.  We also keep accurate records and report honestly on the results – good and bad.  The good is this – since the start of February, our BET OF THE DAY has still gone a very respectable 26-17-1 on the daily selections.  So, we will keep on swinging.

NHL Odds and Notes

It's a busy day and night in hockey – with 11 games taking to the ice on Saturday.

The most anticipated series of the season for Canadians is happening as Edmonton and Toronto play the first of two games.  The Maple Leafs have dominated the Oilers so far in 2021, winning 4 of 5 games.  Edmonton should be well rested and ready.  They've been off for the past week (last week's games versus Montreal were postponed).  Meanwhile, Toronto has been in a mysterious funk lately.  They barely scratched by dismal Ottawa two nights ago (winning on a late goal 3-2).  Proir to that, Toronto had dropped 5 out of their last 7.  Edmonton looks to be a good value play tonight at +135.
