It was a 2-1 night last night with the tips.

Over 5 goals has to be my favourite bet in the NHL honestly. We have over 30,000 people reading these tips on a daily basis so whenever we tip, there’s always that added pressure for each game. Even if a team is up 3-0 or 4-0 we still can’t relax until it’s over. That’s why I love Over 5 so much. In both games last night where we had Over 5 goals, they were at 2-2 after the 2nd period which meant at worst they would be a push. It was so nice to relax and not worry about those games anymore and be able to put full focus on the Ducks game.

Funny one from yesterday – we were very tempted by the Leafs/Avs over. However I was concerned about the Avs offense and I said to Scott “I just don’t know if we can count on the Avs to even score. And it’s not like the Leafs can score 6 goals on their own.” And then they did just that with that huge 6-0 win on the road in Colorado. Man do the Avs have some problems.

Alright so the last day before a much needed Christmas break for us – and I guess the players too. Before we get into the tips I just want to send out a personal thank you to everyone who comments each day. I love reading them and interacting and it’s great to see other peoples opinions. More importantly is it’s a real positive place with a lot of good discussion and it’s always enjoyable to read. I’ve added many bets due to you guys and I love seeing new betting systems etc discussed.

Alright on with the tips and Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, Happy Hanukkah and whatever the hell else you all celebrate – have a good one!

Todays tips are brought to you by Banana Bread beer:


Quite bloody delicious actually.

Flames vs Canucks Betting Tips:

The Flames have a slightly better record than the Canucks and are generally just slightly better over all of the major stats. The Flames are at home where they’ve actually got a poor record of 7-9-0 but the Canucks have the worst road record in the league at 4-11-1. Flames are running a bit cold at the moment but I’ve liked most of their performances at home. Their last two losses at home were to the Jackets who are just unbelievable at the moment, and to a well rested Tampa team who came out hungry.

Canucks have had some better performances lately but we like the Flames to get the win here. We’d actually bet this one at better odds much earlier today but we’ll post the current listed price as even though it’s not as good we still think its a good bet.

Hurricanes vs Bruins Betting Tips:

This one is strongly goalie dependent. Take Hurricanes to win if Ward is playing and Rask is NOT. As of now it’s not confirmed. There’s rumours Leighton may start and we can’t trust him. Rask can also stand on his head at times and the Canes offense is very formulaic and it may be hard to beat Rask. If it’s Kudobin vs Leighton we’d say take the over 5.

Minnesota Wild vs New York Rangers Betting Tips:

It’s possibly Dubnyk will be in net tonight but if so well we bet over with him versus Price last night and we feel similarly confident tonight. Rangers are heavy favourites for a reason – the bookies expect them to come out hot here after that Penguins loss. We agree but we love the Wild offense at the moment as well and so the play for us, regardless of who is in net, is Over 5 Goals incl OT/SO.

Lightning vs Capitals Betting Tips:

Two wins on the trot but this is a big test for Tampa. Vasilevskiy will probably be in net and hey he’s design enough at times but the Capitals are a damn good offense and even his A game won’t be enough to stop them. We like Tampa to get some goals against the Caps too though. Holtby has a nice winning record over Tampa but he still concede the goals and I like the Tampa offense to light it up a few times.

Over 5 Goals incl OT/SO.
