A perfect 3-0 night for us last night for some decent profit. 

We had 2 tips in the Panthers vs Maple Leafs game: Over 5 and the Panthers in regulation.  They Panthers won 4-3.  The over seemed like it wasn’t going to happen when the 3rd period started and it was 3-0 Panthers but then the Leafs came alive but the Panthers held on for the win.

Our other tip was the Rangers to beat the Blue Jackets in regulation and they did winning 4-2.  With the win the Rangers clinched their 6th straight playoff appearance.

11 games tonight so a much busier schedule for us.

Hurricanes vs Bruins Betting Tips:

The Bruins opened March on a strong run  but have now lost 7 of their last 9 games.

They sit in 9th place but are only 1 point behind the 7th and 8th place Flyers and Red Wings. If they can win their final 3 games then they are guaranteed a spot.  To do this they will need to win against a team like the Canes who, on paper at least, they should beat.  The other 2 games they have are both at home the first against the Wings and the final against the Sens.  Wow that game against the Wings could be intense.

Sabres vs Devils Betting Tips:

With both teams eliminated from the playoffs these teams have nothing to lose or worry about in this game. 

The Devils look uninspired of late.  They have lost 2 straight and 4 of their last 5.

The Sabres have shown some life although it’s far to late but it could be a sign of things to come next season for this young team.  They’re 6-2-2 over their last 10 and have won their last 2 games.

For this game I’m going to go with the team who has shown life and with the Over/Under being at 4.5 I feel obligated to take the over.

Sabres Win

    3-0 Last night

    Tonight i like


    What are ur thoughts?

    • Bryan

      Good job last night! i was 3-0 as well. hopefully tonight continues.
      Of these four picks:

      Boston- a must win for them against a weaker team. I know their playing at home where they suprisingly havent been as good…but i like this spot and the must win mentality that theyll be bringing.
      Pittsburgh- they will cover PL against ottawa. Looking to keep 2nd seed for playoffs.
      Chicago- playing for highest seed possible and facing arizona who just played STL last night. Oh and their playing at home for the cherry on top.

      Good luck tonight.

      • David McGillis

        Decent reads on tonight’s action. Well done!! 👍

    • Aslan


    • Great Picks!

    • David McGillis

      Unlike yourself, I choose to make situational and underdog picks with value rather than making ‘square’ picks with heavy chalk. With the exception of yesterdays plays we have seldom seen the faves come thru with any consistency during the regular season winding down. That being said, I do like your picks which i believe should go 3 & 4 or 2 & 4 at worst. Use caution with your WSH pick as I feel this has the makings of a potential upset with the Caps having nothing to play for herent. Also, you have to wonder what Rask’s & Bruins’ heads pace is at after surendering so many goals in their last couple of outings.

      Goodluck and bet wisely!

    • David McGillis

      Nice catch with both your Hawks’ & Pen’s picks. I just hope you valued them up by betting them both in Regulation or better yet the -1.5 puck lines? Sorry bout your Caps & Bruins selections though. Don’t ask me why but i just had a strong feeling to lay off both those picks myself tonight as i had fears of them both being potential upsets.


  • DawsonArkiri

    If you had to bet Over 5.5 on 2 games tonight, what would those be? I like PIT vs OTT and FLO vs MTL. Thoughts?

    • Totot1976

      I do like those as well.

      • Bryan

        i like those
        but i would also consider nsh/col, la/cal

        • DawsonArkiri

          Nice, I agree with you on Nsh v Col aswell! Gl!

          • What do you guys think of the Sabres/Devils Over at 5?

          • Totot1976

            I am playing them over 4,5

          • Caps may take it easy tonight, Isles still need that win, still can be a high scoring affair.

          • Totot1976

            Hope you are right :).

  • Tyler

    I wish I had taken the Sabres O4.5 when the line was still 4.5 at my book.
    The only line I can get on the Bruins currently is – 210 ML so I think I’m gonna take the penguins PL. The Pens have been lights out lately and the senators are lackluster as they have been all season.

  • HeiaDenSaaVinne

    What do you think the chances is if i play the “Double chance” card – home or away on the 11 matches tonight? Do you think it would go in?

    • Arto Reinikainen

      Nah it’ll end in a tie.

  • magus1349

    Devils in regulation;
    Ducks in regulation;
    Habs first period or end regulation;
    Over 5.5 @ Ottawa;
    Over 4.5 @ Boston;
    Over 4.5 @ Rangers.
    Single parlay @ 38.5.

  • Aslan

    Tonight i like:
    BOS in regulation
    LA in regulation
    CHI over 5/ in regulation

  • Johnny Hockey

    Anybody who bet on the AHL too? Aren’t the odds for Milwaukee too good?!

    • RGBBB

      I don’t play AHL that much at all. Are you picking Milwaukee? If so, I might tail you.

  • David McGillis

    Four solid underdog pooches with value at the rink tonight are:

    NYI +162 **1 unit
    Isles will be playing for their playoff lives tonight against an uninspired Caps team with nothing more to play for until this regular season

    SJ +104 **2 units
    Sharks have been absolutely playing in beast mode on the road this year and expect nothing less tonight as they’ve been 7-2-0-1 during their last 10 games as road warriors. Wild have been reeling as of late

    CGY +132 **1 unit
    Flames offer some solid value here as LA has gone 0-5 on their last five road games and will be playing their second game in as many nights against a very ‘loose’ team with no pressure and wanting to perform well in front of their fans in the sea of red tonight.

    MTL +117 **1unit
    I am also leaning towards selecting a Habs win tonight vs a Florida team in what i think may very well be a trap game for them after clinching their playoff spot beating the Leafs last night.

    Best of luck with your picks. Bet wisely

    • SanDiegoBruins

      Thanks, some interesting ideas here

      • David McGillis

        Glad I could provoke some thought

        • SanDiegoBruins

          2-2 you in positive territory?

          • David McGillis

            Definitely, that’s just another reason why I like pouncing on situational or underdog bets….. cause even a sub .500 betting day can become profitable without having to pay any juice. Not to mention it didn’t hurt that I had a couple bills on the SJ/MIN game. It was just too bad that Calgary couldn’t hang on for the win once they took the lead late in the third. That OT winner by Carter blew the wind right outta my sails.


    • I like it. Great feedback.

  • Veikkausforum

    Today: Anaheim. Boston , Chicago over 5,5 , Ottawa over 5,5

  • Totot1976

    here are my picks for regulation.

    • DawsonArkiri

      Can you traduct in english? 😀 It’d be nice

  • Arto Reinikainen

    Devils win 100%

    • Jamie benn

      i think sabres takes it tonight.

      • Arto Reinikainen

        Why would the Sabres care playing the Devils at this point in the season after they won 2 though ?

      • Arto Reinikainen

        Seems like you were right (as well as S&G). I mean the Sabres haven’t been anything special, but the Devils look like a beaten team unable to generate energy from home crowd which is disappointing

        At least the Bolts and Sens are leading 😀

  • slyNHL

    This Boston is shit, cant believe they cant win Harry Kanes to get to p-offs…

  • Totot1976

    last night wasn’t going so well for my scoring slips and regulation results so went to bed before the games ended. This morning found out that my third period slip actually did very well so I ended up in plus :). Bet combo tip for 30 euros got me 665 euros yay!.

    • DawsonArkiri

      Very nice

      • Totot1976

        indeed. Unfortunately does not happen often…
