It’s December 6th, 2017. It’s a Wednesday and that means we’re a bit light on NHL action with just 4 games.

There was some great action last night in the NHL. The Devils got a massive win over the Blue Jackets – 4-1 on the road. Watching the Devils you have to think they might be going on a good run soon – they are really just starting to click.

The Habs dream ended as they lost to the Blues 4-3. It was a hard fought game by them and now it will be interesting to see if they can turn things around after that one or if they’ll go back to being mediocre.

The Stars lost to the Predators 5-2. FYI I probably would have went with the Stars there based on their home results. I seriously have to start saying who I would back in a Preds game and then you can bet the opposite. Let’s see – they next play the Vegas Knights on Friday. Okay I’m saying it right now Predators win that one. Probably in regulation, probably a nice dominant victory. So there you go.

We’re currently experimenting behind the scenes with a unit betting system. Personally we do bet based on units however to keep things simplistic for the tips, we just use a flat unit betting system. However we feel our audience has changed a lot over the years and there’s a lot more people out there utilizing a unit betting system. So hopefully we’ll start going with that by around January.

Just have to work out the kinks from an “official” betting tips status and get comfortable with advising bets for multiple units.

Let’s get to tonights tips:

Flames vs Leafs Betting Tips:

The last few games between the two have been under 6, including one just last week. However the Leafs are at home and the Flames are on the road and this is where both teams both score more and concede more.based on those splits.

Really it’s probably one of those where I don’t have to write too much about. Both high scoring teams on the home/road split and both concede a lot. Seems a fairly standard bet.

We’re going to go with Over 6 incl OT/SO in this one.

Canada: 1.88 Odds at Pinnacle Sports.
USA: -114 Odds at 5Dimes.
Everyone Else: 1.88 Odds at Pinnacle Sports.
Bitcoin: Bet at Nitrogen Sports.

Flyers vs Oilers Betting Tips:

Brossoit is in net for the Oilers. We’ve seen how he’s performed so far this season. There’s a lot of talk from the Oilers about redemption etc tonight and hey maybe that happens – but until he proves himself, we’ve got to go against him and expect him to concede.

With him in net the Oilers have an offense first approach and with their offense killing it the last few games we’ve got to hope they keep doing that.

We’re a bit wary of how the Flyers will approach this one after that win over the Flames but everything suggests they also go all out on offense. Especially with Brossoit in net – they’ve got to know their best chance of a win is to just hammer him.

Over 6 incl OT/SO

Canada: 2.02 Odds at Pinnacle Sports.
USA: +100 Odds at 5Dimes.
Everyone Else: 2.02 Odds at Pinnacle Sports.
Bitcoin: Bet at Nitrogen Sports.

  • Franky

    Capitals ml, Flyers-Oilers over 6, Toronto in Regulation. thoughts? (looking at you SDB)

    • SanDiegoBruins

      I can’t support Caps because they are a flaky team. Just like the Blackhawks ๐Ÿ™‚

      Agree with other two bets. Interesting that O/U for Flyers-Oilers is 6 at your site, I’m getting 5.5

      • Franky

        Omg you’re right, I only hit over 6 cause that was the tips were saying, I should have followed the line from pinnacle

  • magus1349

    Home teams with one unit.
    Marleau, Draisaitl and Rakell with half unit.

    • Johnny Hockey

      Scorer ticket looks nice today ๐Ÿ˜‰ Good luck!

      • magus1349

        Will see tomorrow how nice it is.:)

        • Johnny Hockey

          I just said that it LOOKS nice ๐Ÿ˜›

  • slyNHL

    What’s up with odds on Over in Oilers-Flyers game?
    In the morning (12CET) they were about 1.81 on Over5.5, now they are about 2.05 on same Over.
    Cant get it. Everybody waiting for “under” night?

    • Franky

      I don’t see why anyone would bet Under with Brossoit in net :p

      • slyNHL

        Same here, but this odds moves tho.

        Maybe after winning his first he is like phoenix doing some rebirth in Bobrovsky shape? )))

        • Iceman

          Lots of you let some odds movements to play with your heads

          • Christian Gee

            1.83 on my site. I agree , I just go with what I feel is a best bet and take the relevant odds rather than deliberation on price.

          • Iceman

            Simple my man

      • SanDiegoBruins

        Agree 100% and Smith has given up 18 goals in his last 5 starts.

    • SanDiegoBruins

      Don’t question it and bet the shit out of it. In my view it’s a gift

  • Nik

    5-5 yesterday

    Going with Sens ML today. The ducks are playing meh.. alright and they have been outshot in nearly every recent game. Sens need to start catching up for that playoff spot and they’ve had time to rest whereas ducks had an away game last night.

    • SanDiegoBruins

      Does 5-5 mean you went 5 FOR 5 for won 5 and lost 5?

      • Nik

        5w 5l. Exceptionally many plays last night. For some reason I couldn’t post them because it was labeled as spam. Maybe a too long comment or something.

  • SanDiegoBruins

    I’m betting that the TML will have a decisive win tonight. Flames are coming off a tough loss to basement dweller Flyers and a four-game homestand with just one victory, against lowly Coyotes, and have been outscored 16-8 in three losses. Mike Smith has given up 18 goals in his last 5 starts. Toronto wins in regulation and I’m also taking PL. No value in ML.

    Very confident in taking over in Flyers-Oilers (4 units). Both teams are very leaky and can easily give up 3+ goals. Oilers have finally started clicking and Flyers will be juiced from their slump stopping win versus Flames that some of you predicted with very profitable results. Oilers have Brossoit in net because starter Cam Talbot is still injured. Brossoit has allowed five goals in each of his last two starts, and overall, he has a 3.80 GAA and .872 save percentage. The Flyers Elliott has given up 19 goals in last 5 starts.

    Sitting out BH-Caps, both these teams are on my avoid at all cost list and Sens-Ducks.

    Parlay
    TML ML + Flyers-Oilers over

    GLTA SDB

    • Jens Denmark

      Thanks for your tips – I am onboard with TML in reg. and over 5,5 in the Edm. game ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Franky

      Liking those, I wasn’t sure about the Leafs-Flames Over

      • SanDiegoBruins

        Neither am I, Flames could “flame-out”

    • Kris- -na

      I cant find any edge tonight… and as Im not betting overs/unders myself, I will tail your confident 4! unit play..
      Good Luck!

    • InkedFive0

      No Oliver Trigg today??? I always looking at SDB and OT every day!

  • Johnny Hockey

    Nice profit yesterday again ๐Ÿ™‚ Tonight I’m absolutely with Graeme:

    > Leafs/Flames Over 5.5
    > Oilers/Flyers Over 5.5

  • lion

    Blackhawks win
    Oilers win
    Ducks win

    Good luck everyone

  • cV

    what are you guys thinking about a double to win toronto and ducks ? im not sure about the ducks for tonights game , they played a rought game last night and the sens lose 5-0 in there last match, they need to bounce back and they had good rest last night

    • SanDiegoBruins

      I’m down with 1st leg but I’d find something other than the Sens-Ducks game for the 2nd leg.

      • D to the Z Baby.

        Thanks for your tips , like toronto and washington ? The caps are huges at home this year .

        • SanDiegoBruins

          Caps should win, but they have a way of not showing up so be careful

          • cV

            Cool ! Thanks buddy

          • H20

            Should i go for caps and leafs win?

          • SanDiegoBruins

            Can’t tell you what to do, but I have not had much fortune in betting on Caps. For me the over in the Oilers game is a better bet.

          • H20

            Over 5.5 oilers game gives 1.83

          • H20

            Oilers gonna be under 5.5 goals?? And leafs to?

  • Christian Gee

    Hi folks. As I said before im not graeet on ice hockey as my knowledge bis so limited but I do enjoy your discussions insights on here. Looking tonight at Graeme’s flyers oilers over 5.5 tip. My only fear, as irrational as it seems, is when everyone seems to have it as a given like tonight on here…does anyone else ever get fearful like that ??!

  • H20

    8 min left i closed my bet on caps and leafs win. Feels like leafs cant win Tonigh and Caps doing good 4-1. I feel like oilers game under 5.5 goals

    • Christian Gee

      It was looking very under 5.5 but 2-1 after 2nd period and could still happen. Need a quick goal to open 3rd. I didn’t make a bet in the end.

      • H20

        Need 3 goals in the period. But i think only 2 goals will be scored.

        • Christian Gee

          3-1 now… think it will happen

          • H20

            Yeah good chance now. I bet it flyers will score the 5 goal and ducks the 3 goal. Two teams i cant hate is islands and oilers both always make me lose.

          • Christian Gee

            But not going to back it in play …so.it will happen hahaha

          • H20

            I still think under 5.5 goals

          • Christian Gee

            Think you are right…

          • Christian Gee

            But now 3-2 !!! Gonna be over 5.5 now I guess

          • H20

          • H20

          • Christian Gee

            Yeah told you…as I didn’t go in it happened doooooh ! But glad for the number who were on it here…very close call though

          • H20
