We got off to a great start in the Champions Hockey League Betting, going 2-1 with the tips.
Our first win was with Sparta Prahah vs Vaxjo Lakers HC. We had Over 5.5 goals in that game, and said it’d rack up the goals and that it did – Praha won a hard fought game 5-4 to make it an easy one.
We also won with Frolunda HC vs Servette GE Over 5.5 goals. Frolunda won that won 7-3 in yet another high scoring result.
Odds were 2.00 and 2.05 which were both nice prices to cash in.
Our one loss was with the Double – and it was the surprising one. We had Valerenga/Vienna Capitals Under 5.5 goals at 1.72 odds. We usually stick with the 1.70 and above price, but we decided to throw in Stavanger Oilers vs Tappara Tampere for Overs at 1.57 odds. Amazingly THAT was the one that cost us. That game was expected to hit double figures and it ended up 2-1 after a freaking shootout.
The Valerenga/Vienna Capitals game went Under 5.5 goals so if you stuck with our rule of 1.70 odds and above, it was a 3-0 night for you.
Either way – just happy to get a winning night under our belts.
I picked up an XBox One on Sunday, and pre-ordered NHL 15 digitally. It’s pretty sweet because you get that 6 hour trial period which started today – so I’ve got to try the game out a bit. I’ll invest some more time in it over the next few days then submit a review of it.
Alright, the rest of Game Day 3 takes place tomorrow, September 5th so let’s get some CHL Betting Tips. As always, I recommend betting at Bet365.com and the team names below are how they will be displayed on Bet365:
TPS vs Bolzano Betting Tips: TPS -2.5
I’m not the biggest fan of a handicap of this magnitude, but I have to go with it here. TPS Turko have looked very solid. The first time these two teams played TPS won 9-0. They also beat HC Pardubice 2-1, who are a decent team.
HC Bolzano meanwhile have looked just dreadful. 5-0 and 9-0 losses so far, and with a lot of problems and changes in the team they’re not anywhere near the team that dominated Italy.
TPS should get a good 4-0 victory here I believe. Bet that at 1.80 odds.
Djurgardens IF vs Eisbaren Berlin Betting Tips: Over 5.5 Goals
This is one of those games that I see being fairly competitive. I’m actually quite surprised at the odds of Berlin 2.3 and Djurgardens 1.62 – I’d be leaning towards Berlin there as I see value.
Either way, I like this one to go Over 5.5 goals in regulation time. 1.95 odds.
Those are the only two I feel are worth betting. You can bet those at http://www.Bet365.com.
I think JYP has what it takes to beat Salzburg. The 1.95 odds just aren’t enough for me to take the bet though. Same thought process with HV71.
Also our beloved Nottingham Panthers are 21.00 odds. I don’t hate the point spread of +3.5 on that one at 2.10.
Alright that’s it – I’m off to play more NHL Be A Pro. My 140lb, 5″7 pro called Kobe Jordan just got drafted to the Blackhawks. Fun as hell getting hit and sent flying halfway across the ice. And then I’m off to enjoy some NFL! Scott and me play each other week 1 in our Fantasy League and he’s got Rodgers – let’s hope he gets a stinger early and sits out. Go Hawks defense!
