Another 1-1 night for us last night.

The Bruins were up 2-1 against the Preds but after Josi scored his 2nd of the game to tie it at 2 the Bruins seemed to give up.  The Preds dominated the 3rd and picked up the 3-2 win.  Boston only had 17 shots for the game vs the 33 the Preds had.

We had Over 5 in the Sabres vs Canucks game and this came through for us when the Canucks won 5-2.  Vrbata picked up the hat trick for the Canucks.

The other game of night saw the Colorado Avalanche beat the Minnesota Wild 2-1 in OT. Big win for the Avs against a division rival who had had their number lately.  The Wild won 4 of the 5 games they played last year and twice already this season.

We are already 1/3 of the way through the season and if you had told me that the Penguins, Lightning and Ducks would all be  out of the playoff picture at this point of the season I would have laughed in your face.

A slow night with only 3 games to a much better night tonight with 9 games. 

Hurricanes vs Stars Betting Tips:

Well I’m sure you know already who we are going to tip for this game.

The Stars are in 1st place in the West and the league.  The Hurricanes are having troubles again this year and it’s only a matter of time until they start moving their star players onto new teams and focus on the future.

Over their last 10 meetings, the Stars are 7-3 against Carolina.  Lehtonen is expected to get the start and he’s having a great year and has had success against the Hurricanes.

Stars in regulation

Islanders vs Flyers Betting Tips:

Islanders win is the tip for this game.

Both are coming into this game after a loss after winning 4 straight.  On paper and the ice the Islanders are the better team.

The Flyers have a problem in the 1st periods of games this season getting outscored 25-12.  They’ll have the hands full tonight without Luke Schenn who will be replaced by former Isle Andy Macdonald who has spent all season in the AHL. 

Great games between these two so we will be in for a treat but I like the Islanders to pick up the win. 

Coyotes vs Blues Betting Tips:

St. Louis has owned Arizona over their last 10 gamea going 8-1-1 and have even won the last 5 meetings by a score of 20-5. 

Both teams are on a stretch of bad hockey: Coyotes on a 4 game skid the Blues a 3 game.

The Blues are the better team and they’ll look to this game to turn things around

          • magus1349

            Winmasters and netbet. Bet 365 is banned in my country. Usually i play combos with 4 games and bet one ore two euro. Final odds somewere between 12-30. And yes, my balance is positive , i win one or two tickets per week.

          • Mr Dj 613

            I never bet online or used theses sites
            Are they easy to use ?

            Any advice would help …

          • magus1349

            Yes, is easy to use.
            If you don’t have patience and temperance stay away from they!:))

          • Mr Dj 613

            Lol okay

          • Mr Dj 613

            Advice ….
            Tell me your thoughts

          • Mr Dj 613

            I never played online so I dnt knw
            Thanks bro

            Any other advice ??

            I’m old school that’s why I do proline lol

          • Mr Dj 613

            Which online sites are the best?

            Always Canadian funds
            American ?

          • If you really want to win money you shouldn’t be playing proline. It’s tough enough to get 1 pick right let alone multiple. The odds they give you too are always extremely poor compared to online. Sometimes you can get as high as double the odds for a 3 team parlay online versus proline.

          • Mr Dj 613

            But I have won $1500 in to weeks just off proline

            I do max bets with 3 teams and haven’t have a issue yet

            But online sounds more exciting that u brought it to my attention with the link u sent me

            I have to find the time to read n learn it imma pretty busy guy !!!

          • Read this article on bankroll management as I talk a bunch about sportsbooks you can use there, bonuses you can claim etc. http://www.betnhl.ca/blog/no-tips-today-bankroll-management-other-topics.php

          • Mr Dj 613

            Thanks bro !!

    • Jozef Štefaník

      great work in last two days :), congrats

  • Mr Dj 613

    My thoughts are gonna be:


    GOOD LUCK 2 ALL !!!
    Let’s bring home the BACON !!

  • Aksels Jancis

    what you mean with regulation ?!

    • Mr Dj 613

      Regulation means
      A win in the 3rd period

      So no over time or shoot out

      • Aksels Jancis


  • ET

    Definitely agree with the Stars. Upsets are always possible but everything goes against the Canes tonight. Playing 3/4 nights, stating Ward for the btob and a terrible road record….Isles/Flyers should be a good game but hard to call this divisional game. Hope the Isles come through for you Scott. Good luck tonight!

  • Chicago looks also good for a win… But I would take the moneyline… Could go to OT

    Nice bets, good choices for today

    I recommend Betfair who does a lot of pre-live it’s a good place to get good odds also
    Good luck to all

    • SanDiegoBruins

      US players?

      • Not sure because I live in Toronto but it has also currency American dollars so… I think so … It’s Betfair.com

  • SanDiegoBruins

    jumped on Isles ML early for -115. They are going to eat up Flyers. Got Stars over 2.5 +140 at alt site.. my regular site had them at 3.5! Also like LAK/CBJ o5, NYI/PHL o5, Ott/FL u5, NJD/TML o5, DRW/Caps o5, AZ/STL u5.5, Canes/Stars o5.5. If you’re a big salami guy, I’d go over tonight.

  • SanDiegoBruins

    just for fun, playing 1U single parlay: Isles, Stars, Blackhawks, Blues. pays about 5:1

  • Paul

    Yeah going for Chicago as well..so far on the longest losing streak ever with the picks…think it’s like eight losses in a row…money management kicking in..

    • Mr Dj 613

      LOL !!

  • Tony

    Stars win in regulation.
    Islanders to win.
    Capitals win in regulation. Better price than moneyline, but a bit riskier imo.
    Over 5 goals in the Capitals game.
    Over 5.5 goals in Coyotes game.
    Half unit value bet @ 2.9 on Coyotes to beat the Blues. Suppose I’m a bit biased, fan wise, but I think it’s a huge price. The Blues are a good side, but Arizona have been scoring a lot even despite their slump and the Blues have struggled a bit of late

    Hi Guys!

    Why dont you choose sometimes the OT?
    There are so many teams, who looks like playing for that. (NYI,ANA booth previously, DET, FLA, nowdays DAL the new OT king, thats why i think a little bit risky this STARS in regulation picks)
    More money, and if you check the previous weeks money line picks, you realised, its worth it 🙂

    • Had no value with OT… Less then 1.50 in NHL is not very profitable in a long term… But it’s a choice

      • Cry

        I mean Draw.

        • oh ok it makes more sense but the draw is not a easy market 🙂

    • It’s something I have looked into over the years and have been working on a betting system for. However it’s a very high variance system and I’m yet to nail a system down where I feel confident enough about the probability. Maybe some day 🙂

  • Tommy

    Hi i play islanders Vs. Phily draw after 3 period
    And same on Detroit game and godt 15 times my money back..

    • Cry

      Thats what i’m talking. Great.
      I was greedy, i picked for draw the FLA games too. That 3 was too much now.
