1-2 last night.

We lost with the Stars who lost to the Oilers in overtime. Like I said yesterday – I’d have been kicking myself if I hadn’t bet the Stars, and after watching the game I’m still glad I did.

The Stars dominated the Oilers and Nilsson put in a tremendous performance through all three periods to keep the Stars at 1 goal. And you know what? Props to the Oilers for getting the win for him. I hate when a goalie puts up a stellar performance only for his team to let him down. Pity they couldn’t wrap it up in regulation time for him.

Feel bad for anyone who bet against both Alberta teams last night. Those would have been two brutal losses considering the way both happened.

We had a win with the Flyers beating the Devils in quite the game. A lot of people were expecting a real quiet game there – to the point that Under 5 goals was as low as 1.65 odds at some sportsbooks!!! That ended up being a thrilling game and I’m glad I watched it.

It’s Saturday December 5th and we’ve got a couple of early games with the Capitals at the Jets kicking off at 3pm EST, and then the Penguins vs Kings at 4pm EST. Then a busy night after that.

One quick note – Sharks vs Lightning. It’s a game I’m not personally tipping but my betting system really likes Tampa there. I don’t go by the system religiously but use it as a general guideline. Personally I feel the game is a coin-flip either way but thought I’d mention it.

Pinnacle Sports is the sportsbook of the day, with the best odds in EVERY game we have tips in(except 1) for the non-Americans out there including 1.91 on Tampa.

Let’s get to the tips:

Canadiens vs Hurricanes Betting Tips:

It’s been a bit of a stumble the last couple of games for the Habs, who are of course without Price. But they’ve got a great chance to get things rolling again with a solid road victory over the Carolina Hurricanes.

The Canes have had a lot of poor games lately. And they really haven’t been looking good – especially that 5-1 loss at home to the Devils.

The Habs swept the Canes last season and dominated the games in regulation time. The question here isn’t who to bet – but what to bet.

I’m very tempted by regulation time for the Habs – but I think I’m going to give myself a safety net and bet Montreal Canadiens to win.

A large part of that is in November alone, Carolina had 4 games go to overtime at home – 5 overall. However their record in OT/SO isn’t as good as the Habs – so I’m going to take that knowing if it goes to overtime, we’ve got the better chance.

Canada: 1.81 Odds at Pinnacle Sports.
USA: -125 Odds at 5Dimes.
Everyone Else: 1.81 Odds at Pinnacle Sports.

Blues vs Leafs Bettings Tips:

There’s no doubt that the Leafs are playing better hockey right now than they were at the beginning of the season. But the flaws are still there.

The Blues have stumbled a bit in the last couple of weeks with only 2 regulation wins since November 16th and that was to Buffalo and at home to the Jackets.

However I see this being a nice convincing victory for the St. Louis Blues. Allen is in net tonight and he’s been very solid this season.

Blues to win in regulation.

Canada: 1.85 Odds at Pinnacle Sports.
USA: -120 Odds at 5Dimes.
Everyone Else: 1.85 Odds at Pinnacle Sports.

Blue Jackets vs Flyers Betting Tips:

Oh wow – did I spend my Saturday morning smoking crack with Rob Ford? Because I swear I just read that the Flyers are seeking their 5th straight win.

Oh wait – that’s actually true? What a week in hockey. Leafs have a shutout. Flyers winning games. What’s next? Sidney Crosby actually scores?

Sometimes there’s games where when we first look at them, we love one team. This was one of those games – and the odds made it that much sweeter. I immediately told Scott to play devils advocate, and argue for the Flyers. He did that but it had no effect – I really like the Jackets to get back on track here.

Jackets to win.

Canada: 2.11 Odds at Pinnacle Sports.
USA: +111 Odds at BetOnline.
Everyone Else: 2.11 Odds at Pinnacle Sports.

Penguins vs Kings Betting Tips:

I lasted a whole week before tipping an Under 5 ugh. When will I learn? However I’ve spent the week researching it and I’ve came up with situations where I feel I should bet Under 5 dependent on both the chances of it happening and the odds – and this is one that manages to hit all the triggers.

These two teams never have high scoring games. You have to go back to 2009 for their last game that went Over 5. There’s been a few games that have hit 5 of course – but these two managed to score exactly ZERO goals in regulation time in a game last year.

The way the Kings offense is playing at the moment it’s hard to see much from them.

Under 5 Goal.

Canada: 2.00 Odds at 5Dimes.
USA: 2.00 Odds at 5Dimes.
Everyone Else: 2.00 Odds at 5Dimes.

    Like the Habs too. Even though they lost to the Caps the SOG were 35-17 and 17-2 in the 2nd! Picking +2.5 goals for the Habs is tempting too when you consider, Canes PK rank 29th, they’re GA is 2.96; The Habs PP is 4th & GF is 3.37, Think the Jackets/Flyers is tricky when both are on a btob…..Sparks playing in an unknown building on the road? Like the Blues to win too. BTW, like the Caps to score +2.5 goals when they’re GF is 3.21 and the Jets GA is 3.0.
    and the Caps PP is 2nd while the Jets PIM are the highest in the league. Good luck tonight!

  • dusan

        More than a year monitor the NHL league. I bet on our bookmaker here in Slovenia, I was 70% successful. I’m looking for someone who could give me some advice, for example, if some player is damaged or not to play?

        CAROLINA-MONTREAL to
        win MONTREAL

        Last in the East
        against the first in the conference, among which as many as 21 points
        difference. 8.M Carolina (8-4-13) has lost the last three matches, while last
        Thursday at home experienced a real debacle against New Jersey (1: 5).
        Hurricanes have succumbed to 5 out of 7 matches and consequently fell on the
        last floor, where they were seen numerous even before the start of the season,
        as the air hangs the threat of a complete renovation of the delusions and
        mistakes of recent years. 1.A Montreal (19-3-5) has lost 2 of the last 3
        matches to be played on home ice. If he was defeated by New Jersey in the
        extension still acceptable, but Thursday’s failure derby East Washington (2: 3)
        grounded “Habs”. Another keeper Mike Condon received three goals from
        19 shots Canadiens should top the East to defend the absence of MVP’s Careyja
        Prica for the return of the left will not be ready for at least another month.
        Fortunately, at least for tonight apply Carolina for regular customer Montreal,
        which last year won all three deal with common 11: 2 and this is the sixth
        consecutive victory each. to win MONTREAL

        Goalkeepers: Ward ?;
        Condon?

        Offline: Gerbe,
        Wisniewski * (CAR); Price, Gallagher, Semin, Mitchell, Kassian * (MTL).

      Ouch

      • dusan

        Who have 3 winners, please write me

  • Tony

    Predators vs Red Wings- Over 5

    Maple Leafs vs Blues- Under 5

    Penguins vs Kings- Value bet for half a unit on Penguins to win at 2.5. First thoughts were Kings to win, but not confident for regulation. With the price so bad and Pittsburgh picking up a bit lately I think it’s worth a shot. They had good record against the Kings last year

    Senators vs Islanders- Over 5.5 and Sens to win

    • Mr Dj 613

      Good picks tony
      Look forward to seeing more !

  • Mr Dj 613

    That’s bullshit
    Winnipeg’s goal was soo offside !!
    Dicks reff’s !

  • M. (Thelonious)

    I’m also in with the Canadiens tonight
