Guys & Bets (Episode 44): Tonight’s Bites, NHL Quick Picks, Champions League Pick + More

The NBA is still in its all-star break so today is a light show on Guys & Bets.

On Tonight’s Bites, Jonny OddsShark breaks down a biggie in the NHL as the Toronto Maple Leafs visit the St. Louis Blues, who are the hottest team in the league right now and look to keep an impressive winning streak going. In college basketball, Jonny has picks for Maryland-Iowa and Vanderbilt-Tennessee. The Vols are coming off a bad loss to Kentucky but Vandy might be the cure that ails them as they look to rebound.

Next up, Kris Abbott joins to have a look at the NHL board and make his case for his three favorite plays in NHL Quick Picks. On tap tonight, Kris has picks for Maple Leafs-Blues, Lightning-Flyers and Rangers-Hurricanes.

The first legs of the Champions League Round of 16 conclude on Wednesday and Andrew Avery, who has gone unbeaten in his Champions League picks (entering Tuesday’s games), has a pick from Schalke-Manchester City as the Premier League titans visit the struggling Bundesliga club.

Finally, the guys talk about Manny Machado’s decision to sign with the San Diego Padres, which he probably didn’t have to think long about considering the money he’s gonna make while raking in sunny San Diego.
