We’re back after a one-week break and are ready to win some bets!

December 1: NHL- Tampa Bay Lightning @ Philadelphia Penguins

This game is an easy pick for us. The Tampa Bay Lightning have been to the Stanley Cup Finals for three-straight seasons. The Philadelphia Flyers suck and have been getting bailed out by solid goaltending for the majority of the year.

Flyers goalie Carter Hart has cooled off recently and this makes the Lightning even more appealing as Steven Stamkos is on fire and the supporting cast is as good as ever.

Tampa is a -215 favorite on the ML, but its spread of -1.5 offers a positive value at +110. This is one we’re not going to overthink.

Rebel’s Pick: Tampa Bay Lightning -1.5 (+110) @ 1U

December 1: NFL- Buffalo Bills @ New England Patriots

Buffalo has been struggling these past few weeks and the lines are beginning to reflect that. They head to Foxboro as 3.5-point favorites and are -200 on the ML.

The Bills deserve some of the criticism they’ve been taking recently. The offense looks dominant one minute, then struggles to get a first down the next. The defense is riddled with injuries and almost lost last week’s Thanksgiving matchup against the Detroit Lions. Oof.

But this Patriots team doesn’t strike fear into the hearts of many, as they’ve struggled on both sides of the ball. We don’t expect a blowout, but the Bills need a big win, and what better team to have it against than the Patriots.

Rebel’s Pick: Buffalo Bills -3.5 (-115) @ 1U
