THRASHERS at CANADIENS (NHL)
Let’s try and start another winning streak as we switch to the ice. Atlanta takes a three-game losing streak into Montreal, which is not the right way to cross the border. CANADIENS.
MAPLE LEAFS at SHARKS (NHL)
Tough spot for Toronto, which had to play last night in Los Angeles against the improved Kings. Meanwhile the sizzling hot San Jose Sharks are rested and riding a seven-game winning streak. We see it going to 8. SHARKS.

WIZARDS +6 at NETS (NBA)
The Nets are 7-2 both straight up and against the spread in their last eight due. Give credit to the speedy Devin Harris and his 22-point average. The Wiz are 1-7 ATS in their last 8. NETS.
CLIPPERS NL at MAVERICKS (NBA)
The Mavericks are 6-1 SU and ATS in their last 7 and doing it with defense. In four of those wins, Dallas allowed 76, 78, 83 and 86 points. That should work against the lowly Clippers, just 3-13 on the season. MAVERICKS.
