Game 1: Toronto Maple Leafs @ Pittsburgh Penguins (-1.5, +170), 7:05 p.m. EST

The Penguins are coming off back-to-back losses to the Islanders, so expect them to come out refocused and get up for this marquee matchup at home against the Toronto Maple Leafs, who haven't won since the loss of Austin Matthews. The home team should have the advantage this evening.


Game 2: Los Angeles Lakers (+3, -110) @ Portland Trail Blazers, 10:10 p.m EST 

The Trail Blazers have won 16 straight games against the Lakers, but as they say in the sports betting industry, streaks were made to be broken. LeBron James is well aware of the one-sided drubbing and did everything he could to try end it when these two teams met on NBA opening night. Look for LeBron to have a huge game en route to leading the Lakers to victory. 

Game 3: California Bears @ Washington State Cougars (-7.5, -105), 10:45 p.m. EST

Pullman, WA will be abuzz this evening as the No. 8-ranked Cougars host Cal. The Bears' defense has improved dramatically, but their matchup tonight is unlike one they've seen so far this season. This line actually opened at 10.5 in favor of the Cougars, so those betting on Washington State are certainly loving the three-point swing in their favor. There's a ton of motivation for the Cougs as they took a 37-3 beatdown at Cal last season. They could definitely flip the script on Saturday night.
