The Cheat Sheet: March 11th, 2011

Gather around hockey fans and devoted gamblers, it’s time for our daily meeting before we go off and make some potentially regrettable decisions with our money. Today on the docket: 8 games, sorted into Gold picks, Silver Picks, Bronze Picks, and black lumps of coal.

Let’s see how today’s numbers break down, using the trusty database-recall system.

Friday’s Sheet: (updated at 12PM PT)


– Edmonton has looked pretty futile in their last two games, and they just added Sam Gagner to their growing list of  injuries. I’m not gonna bet them, but I will say that anyone who happens to take Detroit -300 must be really desperate for a bet (nothing in pro sports is guaranteed).

– Will Colorado win another game this season? I wouldn’t be shocked if they didn’t. In any case, it’s not a bad idea to fade them as much as possible, and this looks like a pretty good spot to fade them in. Give me the Ducks.

Agree with the Gold pick? Disagree with it? See a betting line on the board that seems wrong? You know what to do (fill up the comment section).
