2 FOR TUESDAY Richard Saber...last wk: 2-0. ’08 record: 15-11
MAPLE LEAFS at ISLANDERS (NHL):
Two bottom dwellers. I prefer to side with New York, even though the team is on a five-game losing streak and now is below .500. Home ice advantage gets the job done. ISLES.
BLUES at CANADIENS (NHL):
St. Louis is among the league’s worst. Canadiens are hot. CANADIENS.
Bonus play: Detroit Red Wings (Tired Columbus, rested Wings).
2 FOR TUESDAY Mark Mayer... last wk: 1-2. ’08 record: 11-14
WARRIORS at KINGS (NBA):
Golden State is 7-2 in is last 9, but not a reliable cover team as evidence by a narrow 3-point home win over Memphis. Sacramento is 3-1 SU/ATS in its last 4 and 25-16 ATS as an underdog. KINGS.
HEAT at BUCKS (NBA):
Believe it or not, Miami is 3-1-1 ATS in the last 5. Milwaukee is 1-8 SU in its last 9 and 5-10 ATS as a favorite. Yikes! HEAT....Bonus play: Phoenix Suns.
