2.  NHL

- Before the postseason began, we discussed the value of betting against the public in the NHL playoffs. At the time of publication, we had found that visitors receiving less than 30% of moneyline bets had gone 47-52 for +30.76 units and an astounding 31.1% return on investment (ROI). The Los Angeles Kings (+120) are currently receiving just 29% of moneyline bets in tonight’s against the Chicago Blackhawks and may be offering contrarian value to NHL bettors.

3. MLB

- This season the betting system detailed in our MLB Betting Against the Public report has gone 9-4 for +10.19 units won and a 78.4% overall. Since 2005, this system has gone 307-372 for +109.92 units and a 16.2% ROI. Bet Labs users can copy this system from the Think Tank by clicking here.

- Yesterday’s game between the Washington Nationals and Miami Marlins was postponed due to rain, and no makeup date has been set.

- Last night Rangers ace Yu Darvish was scratched from his start with neck stiffness. The results of his MRI were “unremarkable” and the 27-year old right-hander is listed as questionable for his next scheduled start.
