The Cheat Sheet: March 2nd, 2011

Updated: March 2, 2011 at 3:07 am by Jeff Tay

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: 5 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.

Wednesday’s Sheet:

– I kind of like Detroit, I guess… The price is a bit steep for a visitor vs. an 18-12 home team, but the Wings have been amazing on the road this season.

– BTW, New Jersey is still the hottest team in the league, and Tampa Bay’s road offense doesn’t quite pack the same punch as it does at home. I’ll take NJD if the public pounds TBL (and moves the line). 

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).
