Hope everyone enjoyed the all star game! What a fun weekend that was – and the whole John Scott story couldn’t have went any better. And we won our bet on him scoring over 1.5 goals which was nice!
Was also cool to see such a difference in the games – with a medium scoring, high scoring and low scoring. All 3 games were good for different reasons – although it was a surprise seeing Central get blown out the way they did.
Let’s get to the betting tips for today – going to be quick today as unfortunately a few things got in the way so doing these late:
Capitals vs Panthers Betting Tips:
Capitals are without Ovechkin which is a big, big loss. Obviously they can play without him but that’s still going to hurt. Prior to the all star break the Panthers turned things around with 3 dominant home victories.
I do like the move that Trotz is making – not touching the other lines and throwing Galiev right into the top line. However I think the odds for this one are just too good to ignore, considering the way the Panthers have been playing this season.
The value is nice on this one. Montoya is in net for the Panthers and he’s been fantastic so far this season.
Panthers to win.
Jackets vs Oilers Betting Tips:
McDavid is back tonight, and the Oilers are fairly heavy favourites against the Jackets.
I’m going to take Over 5.5 goals. These two teams usually have very high scoring games – both have weak goaltending. Jackets are usually good for a few goals on the road.
I’m also going to take Oilers in regulation. I’d consider them favourites even if they didn’t have McDavid. With him back that’s a huge lift.
