The Flyers amazingly extended their winning streak to 10 last night. The Avalanche gave them a tough game but they kept strong. I think that’s what is most impressive about this run – they have had some TOUGH games but hang on there and have a crazy confidence.

We won with the Over 5 goals in the Tampa Bay Lightning vs Calgary Flames game. Tampa came out strong and looking to put their poor performances behind them. They looked a bit slack in the 3rd period but their offense delivered.

We lost with the Bruins vs the Penguins. We expected the Bruins to battle hard with the Pens and they did, but Pittsburgh took it in OT. The usually solid Bruins penalty kill was disappointing last night as they allowed the Pens to score twice on power plays.

We don’t have any tips today. We went over everything this morning and there was a few possibilities but we wanted to wait to sit on them and wait till later. There are a lot of strong possibilities but we couldn’t whittle it down and have decided to have no tips today, rather than take some we aren’t comfortable with.

Here’s what we were looking at:

– Blackhawks to beat the Islanders. Islanders are a mess again and Darling is hot and the Hawks look like they’re getting going on a winning run.

– Ducks/Bruins Over 5 or Ducks to win. The latter assuming Rask isn’t in net although even if he is, he’s performing average this last little while.

– Coyotes to beat the Leafs. Really though the only factor that had us considering this was Mike Smith and his overall performances against Toronto, plus the Leafs run so hot and cold that the price made the Coyotes appealing.

– Jets to beat Panthers. In the key stats the Panthers are slightly better but we do like the Jets at home and after Laines mistake on Sunday we’d like to see the whole team bonding over that and helping him get through it. On the flip side it could be eating away at him and after a 4 day break decided to skip.

Good luck tonight.

  • Johnny Hockey

    I’m on:

    > Bruins/Ducks OVER 5.0
    > Blackhawks to win
    > Coyotes to win [CRAZY ODDS]
    > Blues in regulation

    Thoughts:

    > Preds/Wild OVER 5.0?
    > Stars/Rangers OVER 5.5?

    • Mirko Presen

      I am thinking about Coyotes too but havent pull the trigger yet. 🙂

    • Caesium

      Nice job!

      • Johnny Hockey

        Thx. I also had a Combo with Jets, Ducks & Rangers 🙂

    • Henry Del Valle Sr.

      Great job, Johnny!

  • Mirko Presen

    Tonight picks

    Bos-Ana over 5 .
    Stl in reg
    Wild
    Nyr and nyr over 2.5g
    Chicago over 2.5g

    GL.

    • Henry Del Valle Sr.

      Nice job! You have a very good thought process about your picks.

      • Mirko Presen

        Thanks seems to me it was a good night for most of us.

  • Norbert Buzási

    I am not sure about them Blues though..
    I am thinking Dertroit ml and Anaheim ml.

    • Bjørn Kjeldsen

      Be careful Bernier seems to get the spot

      • Mirko Presen

        Kings can bounce back.

      • Norbert Buzási

        It could be Khudobin on the other side. I’ll wait for the goalies to be confirmed.

    • Orhan Cypriot Ugurcag

      Don’t Detroit have a good record against the Kings?

      • Norbert Buzási

        They do, but goalies and form are more important for me.

        • Orhan Cypriot Ugurcag

          Zatkoff in Net most likely

  • BlueLineBets

    1-1 last night for less than a unit loss, first down night in a week. I like the under in the Coyotes/Leafs game. Andersen has been really good his last five games, and Smith isn’t bad either. Both teams averaging less than two goals a game the last two weeks. With the line at 5.5 I think it’s worth a shot.

    • Stats Guru

      Why isn’t your Flyers -1.5 bet last night a loss?

      • BlueLineBets

        It wasn’t an official play. Just a lean based on my system.

        • Stats Guru

          But your twitter feed says you had three plays last night? #BlueLineBets has 2 plays +1 bonus play for tonight’s slate of #NHL games!

          • BlueLineBets

            Yes, the bonus play was the lean.

          • Stats Guru

            So you give betting advice based on your “system” but when they lose – they don’t count? You would be popular in Arizona.

          • BlueLineBets

            Dude. You don’t know what you are talking about. I clearly take responsibility for my losses, as evidenced by the losses listed on my page over the past week. If you receive the email I sent my subscribers, with each pick and explanation, then you would know what is and is not an official pick. It’s just like how above Graeme and Scott say “this is what we’re thinking about” but not an official tip. I’d rather not argue on the community board here about this. If you want to have a civil conversation about the why it makes sense then DM me on twitter.

          • Stats Guru

            It all makes perfect sense to me. Good Luck!

    • Tom Brady

      Any reasons on the isles, they are my team soo i seem to be biased from time to time. Just dont trust them at all this year

      • BlueLineBets

        Tom, shouldn’t you be preparing to play the Broncos on Sunday?

        • Tom Brady

          I like to prepare by getting my hockey fix during the week

          • BlueLineBets

            Nice. Would have thought you’d be a Bruins fan though. You learn something new every day I guess.

          • Tom Brady

            Hahaha ill be at the isles game tonight full tilt. Got the over 5 in the game soo hoping for a goal fest as the isles tend to be leaky.

          • BlueLineBets

            Nice man! I’m jealsous. I’m a Hawks fan ha.

          • BlueLineBets

            You might hit the over in the first period!

          • Caesium

            What a crazy 1st period!

          • BlueLineBets

            Seriously!

      • lion

        They gave us some tips that they want to come back and be part of the playoffs. They lost last 3 games against hawks so the game is in new york and hawks are not well fit atm and its good time to beat them 😉 I trust to that game more than others.

        • BlueLineBets

          Not sure I agree about this being a good time to beat the Hawks. They are 3-0-1 their last 4 and are finally getting healthy with Toews and Seabrook back. And they have done most of their recent winning without Kane scoring (0 goals in the last 8 games). Maybe I’m a little biased as a native Chicagoan, but this seems to me more like they are about to go on a run, not slump. Not to mention Darling has been awesome in net.

          • Orhan Cypriot Ugurcag

            Agreed

          • lion

            Well, we will find out the right answers in few hours. Everyone has their own reasons for the each games, so saying something more wont make any sense. Good luck!

          • BlueLineBets

            Didn’t mean to offend! Just like debating hockey, ha!

          • lion

            I am totally fine ☺ I did not mean anything bad. We are all trying to win something right? So thats why saying more something wont make.any sense 👌

    • Shayan S

      Just to be sure, youre sayin preds game to be under 5.5?

      • lion

        Yes, true

    • Orhan Cypriot Ugurcag

      Where are you getting the 100% from?

      • lion

        These percentages are only about my works and feelings.

    • anderson

      lion, do you have games for 27-12-2016, how over/under combination ,we like how you select -5.5, -4.5 pick, it make things much easy for us to pick a better team rather than team winner .

      • lion

        Hi, I ll try to find the time to work on it and then share in night

        • anderson

          any update games tonight 27-12-2016

  • Rumen

    I have Detroit ML for today. I don’t think they would let 4 losses in a row but it’s the NHL where anybody could beat anybody 🙂

  • Orhan Cypriot Ugurcag

    Picks

    Detroit (ML) – I feel Detroit will bounce back today against an opponent they have managed to play well against throughout the years, Zatkoff is also likely to be in net which against a detrot team desparate for a win, looks like a gift from Odin.

    Coyotes (ML) – Insane odds on the money line considering coyotes have started to play better as of late, Smith is also capable of stopping anything the Leafs throw at him so I’ll say why not and go for it, considering Coyotes have had a good record against the leafs too.

    Wild (ML) – Preds are good at home, but that hasn’t really been displayed on many occasions this season, so I’ll start using the term, above average at home, Wild are hot right now, Dubnyk is playing extremely well and it’s almost impossible to score on him at the moment, coupled with an extremely potent Wild defence, I feel the hot hand will continue to stay hot against an average Preds team at the moment.

    • BlueLineBets

      Like the picks tonight!

      • Orhan Cypriot Ugurcag

        Crazy games tonight, the Detroit game surprised me, but I guess the injuries and missing players is too much for them at the moment.

        • BlueLineBets

          Yeah! Great night of Hockey!

  • BlueLineBets

    Anybody brave enough to lay the 16 points with the Seahawks tonight?

    • Mojo

      No way, 16 points in the NFL is too many. Even when it’s the inept Rams. Taking the +16. Might tease that and the total to Rams +22 and Over 32.5

      Taking Leafs ML, Kings ML, Jets ML

      • BlueLineBets

        Yeah, I agree, too much to lay, but they did get beat by 28 last week against Atlanta. I’m on a 4-0 streak on Thursday night ATS but I think I’m sitting this one out.

        • Mojo

          Isn’t that amount of points enticing though?! What you think of that teaser

          • BlueLineBets

            Honestly I see more value teasing Seattle down than LA up. There is sooooo much turmoil with the Rams this week. They didn’t even have a head coach until like a day ago! And now they have to play on short rest against a Seattle team that is finding its form and always plays tough? I think they get crushed tonight, but I still think 16 is too much to lay. Bring it down to 10, maybe 9.5. I bet Seattle wins by 2 touchdowns or more. Not confident enough to pull the trigger though.

          • Mojo

            I can see that side of things for sure. But Fisher is a moron and getting a new face in there might motivate them to play hard. Plus they always play Seattle tough. 22 points is a mountain!

          • BlueLineBets

            I ended up pulling the trigger, I couldn’t resist trying to keep my TNF streak alive, I’m on the Seahawks -15.5, ha. Just a small wager though.

          • Mojo

            Nah I lost on both mine. Had Kings, Jets, Leafs ML and the Leafs totally should have won that game and of course lose in the shootout.

            On my other I had the Rams +15, Under 39.5, Blues ML, Stars ML

            You have to admit there is no way in hell the Seahawks should have covered that. The Rams literally gave them their first 10 pts and most of all that was an INT in the endzone late in the 3rd when it was 10-3. I literally could not believe they didn’t call it a pick after review…

          • BlueLineBets

            Yeah I agree I got a little lucky this week. Sports are crazy man. And yeah I realize you teased the total which is why I deleted that comment. Sorry.

          • Mojo

            Yeah they are, aggravating honestly. Those Seahawk calls bring back awful memories as a GB fan as well. They always seem to get so lucky. Its uncanny

          • BlueLineBets

            We both win! And the streak continues!

    • sh0t0kan

      i did +15 over 39

  • Arto Reinikainen

    Tonights picks:

    Project Lion 1/15

    Wild in regulation

    —————————–

    Also going with value tonight. These are all 40-60% confident picks, but the value is there regardless. Don’t blindly take all of these tho !

    Ducks-Bruins OT
    Hawks-Islanders OT
    Red Wings in regulation
    Blues handicap -1.5
    Stars in regulation

    Good luck !

    • Orhan Cypriot Ugurcag

      Just noticed Anton Khudobin is in net for Boston tonight, might be worth a play on Ducks

      • Arto Reinikainen

        Yeah, i’d say Ducks ML isn’t a bad play by any means. I think even if the game goes to OT they win it in the end – no pressure on the Ducks atm and the Bruins should feel the pressure/fatigue.

        Also, the Ducks won the last time they were underdogs at Boston.

    • Arto Reinikainen

      I had 4 OT picks tonight. Ducks-Bruins, Hawks-Islanders, Leafs-Coyotes and Jets-Panthers. I decided i’ll pick 2 to post here because OT’s are such high variance that there’s always a chance everything goes wrong. Well of course i picked the ones that went wrong -___-

      • Caesium

        Next time post all 😉 Nice job

        • Arto Reinikainen

          Sometimes i like to do system bets where i pick 4 possible OT games and do a double. So if i get 2 right, then those 2 games are multiplied with eachother. If i get 3 right, then it’s basically 3 doubles, etc.

          Single bets are better if i get 1 right and 3 wrong, because with the system bet that would be a losing bet. But most of the time it’s either none right or 2-3. I might just post those system bets alltogether from now on.

          • Caesium

            Sometimes I also do 2/3 system bets! But they are only fine with high odds.

          • Arto Reinikainen

            Yeah, i think the only place to do this effectively is Nordicbet, where the baseline OT odds for NHL are set at 4.00, head and shoulders above rest of the bookers.

            Nice one !

    • lion

      Good start Art! I believe you are capable to that ends with 15/15 because of your knowladge about Nhl. Wish you good luck with that

      • Arto Reinikainen

        Thanks 😀 yeah it’ll be interesting to see where it goes, i’ve never thought of having that 1 best bet each night, but if i force myself to decide every night then it might help me too.

      • anderson

        can you email us next game for to tomorow

  • Smoking Barrel

    I think that Predators and St Luis Blues might be Over 5. I also think about Over 5,5 in Rangers-Stars. What do you think?

  • Caesium

    Hawks ML @ 1.80
    Ducks ML @ 1.83

    I also like Wings, Coyotes, Blues (-1.5), Wild and Stars. I will do a combo with this picks.

    December: 6/12 +1.50

    GL to all!

    • Caesium

      What a donk start by Hawks! Less than 5 min and losing by 2!

      • Orhan Cypriot Ugurcag

        6 goals in the first period..

        • Caesium

          Great show! Hope the Hawks can come out as winners!

          • Orhan Cypriot Ugurcag

            I was leaning to an Islanders win, but should be a close one now, stayed away from that game.

          • Caesium

            They started well again… 4 goals in 12 shots! Unreal…

    • Caesium

      Thank you Detroit!

  • Pucking Hockey

    Put the Minnesota Wild in your notebook. They have been flying under the radar all season

  • Orhan Cypriot Ugurcag

    Nice night tonight, Coyotes (Win), Wild (Win) Detroit (Loss)

    Combo Picks that I wasn’t sure about came through too New york and Ducks in reg (Win)

    • Mirko Presen

      Good night for both of us i did 5-1.That detroit thing i suspected kings bounce back and detroit were not showing any scoring for a couple of games now.
