A 2-1 night last night. We’re now 16-6 for February. Things have been pretty darn good post all-star break, and hopefully it continues.
Our loss of the night was the Anaheim Ducks who blew a 2 goal lead against the Blue Jackets and allowed them to get back into it. The Jackets then managed to take the game in a shootout.
We won with the Over in Kings vs Islanders. Yesterday I had mentioned I was relying solely on my betting system for that one so I was a tad nervous to say the least. Thankfully the Islanders had a big first period to put my mind at rest and it was at least a push by the end of the 2nd, and went over by 2 goals.
We also won with the Capitals over the Wild. That was a tight one. I mentioned yesterday I was concerned that the Wild could come to play. They got fired up in the second half of the game but fortunately for us Ovechkin was playing well – like Ovechkin – and a hat trick for him made it very difficult for the Wild to come back. You know too that something like that would force the Capitals to play out of their skin – who wants to score a hat trick and end up on the losing side?
7 games on the board let’s get to the betting tips for today:
Kings vs Rangers Betting Tips:
The LA Kings are going to be without Jonathan Quick tonight and that’s a big loss. We saw what that was like last night as the Islanders started fast and put pressure on Enroth right from the beginning.
The Rangers are of course missing Nash as well as McDonagh for the last couple of games but that hasn’t stopped them. Lundqvist has stepped up big time to help them at his end including blanking out the Penguins.
Rangers have won 4 straight. I’m hesitant to say they are back on their early season form – but the faster Rick Nash comes back for them, the better. If he comes back within the next couple of games I could see another big winning streak coming from them.
Kings will fight hard but that loss last night is a massive confidence bust for them in terms of winning without Quick.
Rangers in Regulation.
Canadiens vs Sabres Betting Tips:
These two played just 9 days ago and Buffalo won 4-2 in Montreal. Now in Buffalo the Habs will be out for revenge.
The Habs are starting to slowly turn things around and this is a massive game for them because they’ve won at home but can they win at away? This is a great opportunity against a Buffalo Sabres team who have been absolutely horrendous at home.
I must admit I’m very surprised at just how heavily favoured the Habs are here in this game. I like it to be a competitive affair. While the Sabres offense can be hit and miss and have the worst goals per game at home, and the Habs offense is still just waking up from their Thanksgiving meals – I think this one will have enough goals in it with both teams desperately wanting the win.
Over 5 Goals.
Panthers vs Blues Betting Tips:
I’m going to rely 100% on a system pick again today because much like yesterdays – it feels very strongly about this specific game.
It likes Panthers -1.5 over the St. Louis Blues. It specifically suggests Panthers to win 3-1 if you want to place a bet on the correct score too. 15.00 odds for that at Bet365.
It could be completely off base – if you want to play it safer the Panthers odds of winning including overtime/shootout are great. Your call.
Anyway we’ve been looking at the other games and just can’t pull the trigger and are starting to overthink them. Avs Under seems appealing but just can’t get fully behind it. You’d think the Lightning would return to form at home – but I dunno, we’ve watched their last 2 road games and have to wonder if that will really help.
Panthers -1.5 odds.
