Well we got back to our winning ways last night with the tips going 3-0 for a combined 5.98 units won! Our wins came from the Lightning getting the first powerplay, the Rangers scoring first and the Blue Jackets winning. The Eastern Conference was determined last night now its just a matter of moving up or down spots to see who plays who. In the Western Conference there were some interesting results. Detroit won and are now in 7th with 54 points. The Blue Jackets won and are in 9th tied with 8th place Minnesota with 53 points.

Again after a busy night we are back to a slow night with only 10 games on. Hard to believe that the season will be over this weekend. But at least the playoffs start next week so we have some awesome and intense playoff hockey to look forward to. Of the 8 teams playing tonight only 2, the Blackhawks and the Islanders, have clinched a playoff spot with the Wild in but not guaranteed.

Let’s get to the NHL Betting Tips tips for Friday April 26th

Wild vs Oilers: Wild -1.5

The Wild have yet to clinch a playoff spot and are currently in 8th place. The Wild look to not only clinch a spot but to sweep the 4 game season series against the Oilers. Its win and their in for the Wild and in doing so will make the playoffs for the first time in 4 years. They spent a fortune in the off season on Parise and Suter and if they miss the playoffs it would look horrible for the teams GM. In the previous 3 games against the Oilers the Wild won each game by 2 goals.

I expect the Wild to win this game. They are against a team they have had great success against this year and with the playoffs on the line they will be giving it everything they have. Bet that the Wild will beat the Oilers by 2 or more goals at http://www.bet365.com(Non-Americans) http://www.bovada.lv(Americans) for 2.40 betting odds

Islanders vs Sabres: Goal Before 9:30 Of First

The Islanders are now just trying to better their position as they are in 8th place but are tied with the 6th and 7th place Sens and Rangers. With a win they would move into 6th and for the time being would be facing the Capitals in the first round. The Sabres are now spoilers and are just playing for pride and would like to beat their New York state rivals.

I expect this to be a good high scoring game and suggest you go to http://www.bet365.com(Non-Americans) http://www.bovada.lv(Americans) and bet that a goal will be scored before 9:30 of the first period for 1.95 betting odds.

Flames vs Blackhawks: Blackhawks Score First

The Flames have had a bad year and are now in full on rebuild mode after trading away all their talented players. The Blackhawks on the other hand have just been outstanding this year and as the President trophy winners would like to get as much momentum going into the playoffs as they can. I think the Hawks will, as usual this season, have control of the game from beginning to end.

The Blackhawks will probably win this game but the odds are not worth betting on. The Hawks should score first and it is defiantly worth betting on at http://www.bet365.com(Non-Americans) http://www.bovada.lv(Americans) for 1.90 betting odds.
