William Hill US Sports Betting Tips – 22 May, 2018

NHL – Tampa Bay Lightning @ Washington Capitals

22 May, 10:05am
Capitals $1.77, Lightning $2.10
The series is on the line for the Capitals as they head home. After 3 straight wins, the Lightning are just 1 win away from the Stanley Cup Finals. On the road in game 3 and 4, they beat the Capitals 4-2 in both. Then at home, they held off the Caps for a 3-2 win. Vasilevskiy has been a beast at the back for Tampa and he’ll be the key once again in game 6. He has made 152 saves in his last 5 games and the Caps will need to find the back of net like they did in game 1 and 2. In Tampa Bay, they outscored the home side 10-4 in 2 games. But the worrying sign is they’ve lost both games at home in this series and have been outscored 8-4. The away side is 5-1 in away games this playoffs so you have to figure they’ll be good value over $2 to close this series on the road.
Best bet: Lightning WIN $2.10

MLB – New York Yankees @ Texas Rangers

22 May, 10:05am
Yankees $1.51, Rangers $2.60
The Yankees head to Texas and they’ll look for a third straight win. After a week in which rain interruptions meant the Yankees were a bit rusty, they’ve found their groove again. In 2018, they’re the best scoring in the Majors, especially on the road. In away games, they’re scoring just under 9 runs and that probably won’t change in this ballpark. For the Rangers, they’ve had a disappointing season so far with just 18 wins from 48 games. They sit at the bottom of the AL West and this will be another tough challenge. They’re also just 7-16 in home games and score under 4 games per game. Bartolo Colon has been pitching well and is coming off a 4 hit, 7.2 inning outing in Seattle. However, at home he’s allowed 10 total runs in the last 3 starts. He also holds a 5.96 ERA versus the Yankees in his last 5 starts. Which includes 10 total runs allowed in his last 7.1 innings. While for the Yankees, Tanaka doesn’t enjoy pitching in this ballpark. In 2017, he allowed 7 runs and 8 hits over just 4 innings. In his last 4 starts, his ERA is 6.38 against the Rangers. This season, he hasn’t been at his 100% best. So the overs is a good bet. The average total runs between these two sides since last season is 11.33.
Best bet: Over 9.5 runs

Value bet: 1.90

NBA – Boston Celtics @ Cleveland Cavaliers

22 May, 10:35am
Cavs $1.33, Celtics $3.40
The Cavs roared back into the series with a comfortable 116-86 victory in game 3. The pleasing sign was LeBron scored under 30 points and the Cavs still won easily in the end. Their defence stood up at home as they made the Celtics take tough shots. As a result, the away side shot just 39% from the field. The win made it 6 straight home wins for the Cavs in the playoffs and they’ll be confident of another in game 4. Meanwhile, the Celtics are just 1-5 on the road in the playoffs and will need show something on Tuesday. Al Horford will be one of the keys after he was held to just 7 points. But basically all 5 starters had poor games. So the betting odds are pretty similar to game 3. The Cavs are $1.33 favourites and they covered the line last game. The Celtics woes on the road are the issue here and the Cavs love playing on their home court. So I’m taking the Cavs by 7+ points and they’ll square this series at 2-2.
Best bet: Cavs -6.5 $1.92
