The Draft


Happy Star Wars Day, sports fans. May the 4th — and all your wagers — be with you.

Making Headlines

NFL: Former Steelers offensive tackle Alejandro Villanueva signed a two-year deal with the Ravens.

Tonight’s Action

Oilers at Canucks 

Watch: 10 p.m. ET, ESPN+

Odds: Oilers -205, Canucks +175 || O/U 6

Pick: All eyes will be on Edmonton’s Connor McDavid. The center needs nine points over the final six games to reach 100 in the 56-game season.

Sports Section likes McDavid to spark the Oilers to the win, so take Edmonton on the moneyline and the over.

Shoutout: Yesterday, we asked subscribers to predict the winner of Rays-Angels, the score, and the player with the first home run of the game. Tampa won 7-3, with Willy Adames hitting the first dinger.

Subscriber Tim Maher (@glenayrfarm) had the Rays winning and was closest to the final score. No one had Adames reaching the seats.

Keep the picks coming, everyone!
