The Draft

POWERED BY

Four MLB games played seven miles apart on the same day? It can only be New York.

Making Headlines

Golf: Tom Brady and Phil Mickelson will take on Aaron Rodgers and Bryson DeChambeau in The Match, an exhibition event July 6. The trash talking has already begun. 

NBA: The Knicks and Jazz each evened their first-round playoff series at 1-1, while the 76ers took a 2-0 lead over the Wizards.

NHL: The Islanders and Lightning advanced to the second round, while the Wild forced a Game 7 with the Golden Knights.

MLB: The Mets shut down starter Noah Syndergaard for six weeks due to right elbow inflammation.

Tonight’s Action

Hurricanes at Predators

Watch: 9:30 p.m. ET, NBCSN

Odds: Hurricanes -141, Predators +123 || O/U 5.5

Pick: Carolina is looking to advance to the second round for the second time in three seasons. Sports Section likes the Hurricanes to do just that, so take them on the moneyline. For the best value, parlay the under.

Shoutout: Yesterday, we asked subscribers to predict the winner of Hawks-Knicks, the final score, and the combined points of Trae Young and Julius Randle. New York won 101-92, with Young and Randle combining for 45.

Subscriber Tim Maher (@glenayrfarm) predicted a 109-106 Knicks victory and 50 points from Young and Randle. Nice job, Tim!

Keep the picks coming, everyone!
