Game 1: Philadelphia Flyers @ Tampa Bay Lightning -1.5 (+115) - 7:35 p.m. EST

The Lightning have been scorching hot of late, winning 17 of their last 20 games. Led by their prolific scoring attack, Tampa has scored at least four goals in seven straight games, and in 21 of their last 25 games. Philly won't be able to keep pace in this one, as they have scored three goals or fewer in each of their last six games. Tampa is also 5-2 against Philly in their last seven meetings. 

Game 2: Boston Celtics (moneyline, -128) @ Houston Rockets - 8:10 p.m. EST

Houston comes limping into this game with Chris Paul already on the shelf and James Harden with a calf issue that he'll play through. Boston comes in covering 10 of their last 13 overall, and they have covered their last four meetings against Houston. We can also take solace in the fact that Celtics head coach Brad Stevens is one of the best in the business, and he'll certainly have a game plan to deter Harden from doing whatever he wants with the basketball. 

Game 3: Under 56 (-105) in the Vanderbilt Commodores vs. Baylor Bears College Football Game - 9:00 p.m. EST

Eight of the last 11 games involving Vanderbilt have hit the under. Baylor, on the other hand, has been more on that wavelength with the under hitting in five of the last six games they have been a part of. Look for the SEC team to assert their dominance up front and keep the overrated Bears' offense off the scoreboard.
