Carolina Hurricanes at Detroit Red Wings, 7:30 p.m. ET
Odds: Hurricanes -225, Red Wings +200 || O/U 5.5
Pick: We just praised the red-hot Canes, so tonight we’re putting our money where our mouth is. They figure to blitz the Wings (8-17-4), who rank near the bottom in power-play and penalty-kill percentages.
Take Carolina on the puck line (-1.5, +122), and lean over. If you don’t want to worry about the two-goal cover, our bonus play is a moneyline parlay (around -115) with the Avalanche.

Shoutout: Yesterday, we asked subscribers to predict the winner and score of Lakers-Warriors, as well as the combined points of Los Angeles’ LeBron James and Golden State’s Stephen Curry.
The Lakers won 128-97, and James and Curry combined for 49.
Sports Section missed badly with our call to take the Warriors and the points. We did, however, hit the over-224.
Subscriber Cory Hansen (@coryhansen) had the Lakers and was closest to the final score and the points for James and Curry. Nice work, Cory!
Keep the picks coming, everyone!
