NEW YORK – With so much action in the NBA, NHL and PGA, bettors may need to know where to look for the best bets of the day.

NBA Odds: New York Knicks Vs. Boston Celtics

Whenever a New York and Boston team play one another, there’s bound to be a lot of eyes on the game. In terms of betting, the best bet between the New York Knicks and Boston Celtics may be on the first quarter total as online sportsbooks could have it set too high.

Celtics vs Knicks First Quarter Total Odds

  • OVER 52.0 -110
  • UNDER 52.0 -110

The Knicks and Celtics are among the lowest first-quarter scoring teams in the league.

Boston scores 26.2 points per first quarter which ranks 25th while New York scores 25.8 points which ranks 26th. Further, both teams are in the top 10 for the fewest first-quarter points allowed per game. Boston gives up just 26.3 points per game while the Knicks allow 26.8, ranking fifth and eighth respectively.

NHL Odds: Florida Panthers Vs. Dallas Stars

The Florida Panthers have made a case to be the top team in the NHL this season as they are currently just one point out of first place and also have the second-best goal differential in the entire league.

For some reason, NHL betting sites only have them as minor favorites over the seemingly inferior Dallas Stars.

Panthers vs Stars Moneyline Odds

  • Florida Panthers -140
  • Dallas Stars +120

Dallas surely has their work cut out for them as they have a negative goal differential on the season.

The Stars are good on their home ice with an 11-3-1 record while Florida has struggled on the road by going 4-4-1, but regardless the difference in talent is too significant to pass on a -140 moneyline.

PGA Tour Odds: Sentry Tournament Of Champions

The Sentry Tournament Of Champions is the first real golf event of the 2022 calendar year. The first round begins on Thursday and bettors can find odds on which golfers will by leading the tournament after the first round.

Those betting on golf will find a familiar face rightfully at the top of the odds board.

Sentry Tournament Of Champions 1st Round Leader Odds

  • Jon Rahm +1200
  • Justin Thomas +1200
  • Collin Morikawa +1400
  • Bryson DeChambeau +1600
  • Sam Burns +1600
  • Viktor Hovland +1600

Jon Rahm was the best golfer on the planet for most of last season and there’s no reason to believe he won’t be the same this time around.

Among all the categories he excelled in, Rahm consistently got off to good starts in tournaments. He had the second-best Round 1 scoring average on the PGA Tour, shooting 68.95 on average.

Most golfers haven’t been competing too often as of late, so getting a proven hot starter at +1200 odds seems worth the risk.
