NBA Odds: Hawks, Heat look to advance

It's a must-win situation for the Orlando Magic on the Tuesday NBA playoff betting board, as they face elimination down 3-1 to the Atlanta Hawks.

It's been a horrible postseason for the Magic so far. They've been favored on the NBA odds in every game in the series so far and failed to cover in all of them. Of course, it's pretty hard to cover when you keep losing straight-up.


Sabres, Flyers in NHL playoff betting

Philadelphia tries to complete the comeback from a 3-2 series deficit and win Game 7 when they host the Buffalo Sabres on Tuesday night in NHL betting action.

The Flyers are -160 home favorites at Bovada against the Sabres in what is turning out to be a feisty finish to their first-round Eastern Conference series.

Mike Richards' hard hit has likely sidelined the Sabres' Tim Connolly for the series finale. Buffalo has been pressed into bringing back Derek Roy, who led the team in scoring before being lost to injury early in the season.
