A 2-1 night with a nice big win on the Buffalo Sabres beating the San Jose Sharks.

The night started off tight with Capitals going behind to the Wild twice. The Wild were feisty and really wanted to win this game but it’s a credit to the Capitals skill level that they were able to win this one.

We had the Ducks -1.5 vs the Oilers but that one went to overtime. Ducks played well but jsut could not bet the puck by Talbot. What a goal by Rakell to win it though.

Our big win was with the massive underdogs the Buffalo Sabres, who defeated the San Jose Sharks on the road. They went 1-0 down but the heads didn’t drop and the Sabres got a deserved win.

It’s Saturday, February 27th and we’ve got a solid day of sports ahead of us. Especially looking forward to UFC Fight Night with Bisping vs Silva. Very, very curious about that one and I’m highly conflicted on who I want to win. We’ve also got hockey all day long which is just perfect. Can’t beat a Saturday sitting at home, drinking beers, eating pizza and watching sports.

Let’s get to todays tips:

Flyers vs Coyotes Betting Tips:

Would have backed Flyers without Giroux. He’s in. Let’s go Philly.

Flyers to win.

Canada: 1.74 Odds at Pinnacle Sports.
USA: -136 Odds at BetOnline.
Everyone Else: 1.74 Odds at Pinnacle Sports.

Leafs vs Canadiens Betting Tips:

These games always have the ability to go off. Habs should win this as they’re on a nice run at the moment – but even when the goaltenders have a good night they’re still leaking goals. Leafs last few games on the road have been high scoring affairs.

Over 5.5 Goals.

Canada: 2.20 Odds at Sports Interaction.
USA:+118 Odds at BetOnline.
Everyone Else: 2.15 Odds at Bet365.

Rangers vs Stars Betting Tips:

Rangers are decent priced underdogs at the moment. I’m not sure what happened with the Stars against the Jets – I know they’ll be coming out hoping to bounce back strong. But the Rangers are a tight team and very tough to play when they visit lately.

It’s a bit of a coin toss of a game but we’re leaning on the underdog Rangers here.

Rangers to win.

Canada: 2.15 Odds at Sports Interaction.
USA: +115 Odds at BetOnline.
Everyone Else: 2.05 Odds at Bet365.

Predators vs Blues Betting Tips:

Throughout the season the Blues have had injuries but managed to overcome them. They’re still piling up and it’s starting to take effect with losses against the Rangers and Sharks.

They’re going up against a solid Preds team who haven’t lost in regulation since February 9th against the Capitals, and who are really playing well at the moment. They had a solid performance against the Blackhawks.

Blues have a good history against the Preds, beating them in the last 5 games but we like the Preds.

Only bet if Rinne is playing.

Predators to win.

Canada: 1.80 Odds at Bet365.
USA: -128 Odds at BetOnline.
Everyone Else: 1.80 Odds at Bet365.

Sabres vs Kings Betting Tips:

Let me preface this by saying that both me and Scott hate this bet. We really, really do.

The Sabres had a tremendous result last night but we just can’t see them following it up against a stingy Kings team.

But the odds are just too good to pass up. The Sabres are great value coming off a massive win and have a great record against the Kings including 4 wins in their last 5 games.

This is the ultimate definition of a value bet. However while last night we felt good about the Sabres – we’ll be shocked if they pull it off here.

Sabres to win.

Canada: 3.52 Odds at BetOnline..
USA: +252 Odds at BetOnline.
Everyone Else: 3.52 Odds at BetOnline..

    I have a feeling shootout in leafs and habs game

  • Aaron Weafer

    My pick for tonight;

    Rangers ML;
    I agree with you Graeme, the Rangers are very nicely priced considering how they seem to have turned things around when on the road. A few weeks ago I would have only bet on them if they were at home. Their defence has tightened up recently and they haven’t had a problem with offence all season. The Stars are going through a rough patch and they will be hurting after being blown away by the Jets the other night. This game does have the potential to be a springboard for the Stars to find their form again but with how they bolt out of the gates with a very potent attack they always fail to find a balance and cover when the defence is called into action. I expect a tight game but I am backing the Rangers to pull off a big win to continue their good form on the road.

  • Michael Bishop

    Pens ML – Malkin, Bennett both confirmed

  • magus1349

    3 from 4 last night for me.
    For first 5 games serie my bet is:
    Coyotes, Blue Jackets, Penguins and Blues.
    To score: Berglund, Ekman-Larsson and Kunitz.

    • SanDiegoBruins

      The bloom is off the rose

  • Troy Miles

    If anyone is interested in helping it would be appreciated…any guesses on games going to shootout i have 3 games including leafs but any help is good help

    • Norbert

      I think the Flyers-Coyotes could be one.

  • Troy Miles

    Thanks norbert much appreciated

  • Steelad

    Had some nice bets come in last night Inc bruins 2 goals 1St period, lightning devil’s under 5 and Sharks sabres under 5. Going to have a proper study closer to face offs for tonight. Love to see others tips that back my thinking so far

  • Nhl

    I LIKE

  • SanDiegoBruins

    Finished up last night after a brutal beating the night before. No time for explanations for which I’m sure you are all glad.

    My bets:
    Flyers PL – no value anywhere else and they could get an ENG
    Cats-CBJ over
    NYR ML
    NYR +2.5 goals (still decent line here, Stars goaltending sucks)
    Sens ML – they are a good team and will bounce back from close one vs Nucks. I don’t believe that Ortio is as good as his last couple games.
    Sabres PL +1.5 – I think they can keep it close and at -120 still pretty good line

    good luck boys

    • John

      No, I like your explainations

      • Canucklehead

        Me too!

    • Henry Del Valle Sr.

      Great job yesterday!

  • http://www.8amBeerPong.com Graeme

    Completely forgot to add above – Peterborough/Sudbury Over 7.5 goals in OHL

  • Canucklehead

    I’m going to go lion style here. And if anyone ever sees me tip a puckline again … kick me in the #$%

    Philly + OVER (Missed the start due to work *&#$*#&)
    Pitts + OVER
    Florida + UNDER
    Nashville + UNDER
    Rangers + UNDER
    Montreal + OVER
    Ottawa + OVER
    LA + UNDER

    Good luck everyone!!

    • SanDiegoBruins

      Good job!

      • Canucklehead

        Thanks! You too. Only missed your Sabres PL by 1. Solid everything else.

    • Henry Del Valle Sr.

      Terrific work, young man! Bravo!

  • Arto Reinikainen

    Fantastic work with the Sabres yesterday !
    Im going with the Jets, in regulation no less. 4.10 odds.
    Pens need wins. Jets don’t. Pens will be pressing the whole game while the Jets get some easy goals like they did against Stars. Also Malkin’s first game back, that’s not always a good thing.
    I mean probably will lose but i really want to try it out xD

  • Henry Del Valle Sr.

    I just want to say how everyone on this board is so knowledgeable about this sport we love. The input and differing opinions on here have been awesome. I look forward to each and every day to see to what everyone’s thoughts are.
    Good luck with tonight’s picks!
    Go Blackhawks!

    • Srich

      very true!
      Great community

  • Steelad

    Looking at – Montreal -1.5 at 9/5, Tatar anytime 13/5, LA to win, over 4.5 goals in 60 mins 11/8 and Ottawa to win v Calgary 5/6. They look good bets to me and some value in there as well. GL anyone having a bet tonight

  • Arto Reinikainen

    Serious pick: going with Detroit all the way in the outdoor game.

  • Troy Miles

    Going with a home win outdoors for colorado just as minny took down chicago outdoors
