The Draft

POWERED BY

Welcome to all our new subscribers! We’re happy to have you aboard for an incredible sports week capped off by the NFL Draft and Kentucky Derby.

Making Headlines

NHL: Connor McDavid scored a hat trick in two periods to lead the Oilers to a 6-1 victory over the Jets. McDavid is now on pace for 99 points this season.

The Penguins are clearly the hotter team, winners of four straight and 8-1-1 in their last 10. Yet the opening line said they’re basically equal to the Bruins, who have gotten the sharp action and are now moneyline favorites. This talented Boston squad has underperformed and needs a statement win if they’re going to hold off the Rangers in the East. They’ll get it tonight.

Take the Bruins on the moneyline and the over.
