The Draft


We’re only 100 days from the Olympic Summer Games in Tokyo. In the meantime, it’s back to baseball.

Making Headlines

NHL: The Capitals trounced the Flyers 6-1 and have combined for 14 goals over their last two games, the most in consecutive contests since scoring 16 from Jan. 11-13, 2003.

NCAAM: Baylor’s Davion Mitchell declared for the 2021 NBA Draft. The guard is a potential lottery pick.

Tonight’s Action

Padres at Pirates, 6:35 ET

Odds: Padres -215, Pirates +180 || O/U 7.5

Pick: Righthander Joe Musgrove, who hurled the first no-hitter in Padres history in his last outing, is scheduled to face lefty Tyler Anderson for the Pirates. 

Sports Section likes Musgrove to keep it rolling against his former team. Take the Padres on the moneyline and bet the under.

Shoutout: Yesterday, we asked subscribers to predict the winner of Lightning-Predators, the score, and the top points-scorer. Nashville won 7-2, with Viktor Arvidsson and Roman Josi each piling up three points. 

No subscriber had the Predators thumping the Stanley Cup champs. It’s time for a rebound!

Keep the picks coming, everyone!
