We had a nice winning night yesterday going 2-1. Rangers/Lightning went over the 5.5 spread although it was a tight one for awhile there. Detroit also beat the LA Kings. Unfortunately the Red Wings could only win by the one goal, meaning we lost the puck line bet but still a highly profitable night.
Monday, February 11th 2013 sees another decent list of games with exactly 6 games. Fresh off their hammering of the Habs, the Leafs host Philadelphia. That’s a game I’m really curious about because the Flyers KILLED the Leafs last season. The Flyers however have a dreadful road record while the Leafs also have a horrific home record. Very interesting game.
Let’s get to tonights NHL Betting Tips:
Flyers vs Leafs Betting Tips: Flyers To Win
This is one of those tips I go back and forth on – if you’re looking for the best NHL Betting Tips then this wouldn’t fall under it. But it’s one of those bets I just can’t help but make, and after debating about it I’m going to have to tip it too.
Flyers are embarking on a lengthy road trip. They want to start it with a bang – I know they’ve got a horrible away record but it’s early days and they’re looking a bit better lately. Leafs meanwhile – well, they crushed the Habs, they’re full of optimism, the fans are talking about the playoffs – isn’t that what ALWAYS happens? And then they go out there and get humiliated.
The fact that the Flyers had their number last season really helps too. I was hoping for better odds on this one – Flyers at about +140 or something would’ve been sweet! I’m seeing -120 at most places, but 5Dimes has the Flyers at -110. You’ll have to register/log-in to see their lines but hop on that one before it changes.
Islanders vs Hurricanes Betting Tips: Islanders To Win
Unlike the previous bet – this one I am feeling really confident about.
New York match up well with the Hurricanes. And while the Islanders are on a nasty losing streak, plus go into this with a 1-4-0 home record – they’re going to go into this one confident. Their record doesn’t tell the full story – they’ve been outshooting most teams and it’s just the finishing plus some good goaltending that has been lacking.
In addition to that, the Islanders will be confident. They’ve beaten the Hurricanes a lot in the last couple of years including a clean sweep in 2011-2012. That’ll be fresh on their minds, and the Islanders know this is the PERFECT game to turn things around. Bailey and Visnovsky are back too.
The best place to bet this is over at Pinnacle Sports who are currently offering a very healthy -107 odds. Places like Bodog have it at -120 currently.
Islanders vs Hurricanes Betting Tips: Islanders -1.5 Puck Line
I’m going to go back to this one again. As I said I just LOVE the Islanders here – I think everything is set in motion for a great victory over the Hurricanes to really get their season going.
I’m tipping the Islanders -1.5 Puck Line which is the spread – this means the Hurricanes need to win by a minimum of 2 goals.
This is one of those handicap bets where you REALLY need to line shop. As of this timing, Bodog have the line at just +150 but Pinnacle have it at +267. Would you rather win $150 on a bet or $267? Yep – sign up at Pinnacle and bet this one.
