Well – I knew last night wasn’t going to be a good night just 9 minutes into the Leafs game. After everything I wrote about Sparks and the confidence the Leafs had in him – he was pulled and the Leafs were 2-0 down.
Thankfully it was an injury as to why he was pulled – because he had been playing a blinder before that and 2 PPGs against him really say less about him than the team. Leafs fought back but with Bernier in net – not gonna happen.
The Dallas Stars were surprisingly blown out by the Calgary Flames. They scored a short handed goal to go up 1-0 and everything was looking good – but the Flames stepped up
We had the Over in the Blackhawks/Oilers game and the Blackhawks held up their end of the bargain. Unfortunately the Oilers couldn’t get anything past Crawford.
Tonight we’ve got 6 games on the go. Let’s see what we’ve got:
Capitals vs Lightning Betting Tips:
Capitals have two victories already over the Tampa Bay Lightning and I like them to make it a third.
Tampa are without Palat, Johnson and Drouin and are going up against a Washington team that have been firing on all cylinders all throughout the season.
We’ll take Washington Capitals in regulation here.
Panthers vs Hurricanes Betting Tips:
A lot of stats lean towards the Panthers today – but I like the Carolina Hurricanes.
Panthers have obliterated the Devils and Islanders in their last two road games but I think this is a step too far for them. The Hurricanes are also surging and Jeff Skinner has really helped the team fire on all cylinders at the moment.
However I don’t like the odds on the Canes. They’re too heavy favourites in what I think should be a lot closer in terms of odds. Actually makes the Panthers probably a value bet.
Going to take Over 5 in this game.
OHL Betting Tips:
We continued our great run with another win this week.
Tonight we’ve got the Mississauga Steelheads to win at 1.71 odds over the Sarnia Stings.
You can bet the OHL at any of the below:
