An excellent winning night last night, as we went 2-0 for +2.38 units profit.

We had the Tampa Bay Lightning -1.5 and holy crap what a game that was. The Oilers managed to tie the game up 3 separate times after being behind but thankfully Alex Killorn slipped one in with 27 seconds left to get us the win on that one.

We also had the Blackhawks to defeat the Predators, and the surging Blackhawks continued their incredible run with a huge 4-1 win in Nashville.

We had Over 5 goals in the Bruins/Habs game and that was a push. Montreal continue to be a sad state of affairs as Carey Prices value just goes up and up. Might have to get tickets for his returning game because man – that’s gonna be quite the atmosphere.

3 games tonight and we’ve got two tips. Let’s get to it:

Sabres vs Avalanche Betting Tips:

An interesting game here. Avalanche have a solid record against the Sabres. You actually have to go back to 2005 when Buffalo last beat Colorado.

O’Reilly and McGinn get to face the Avs for the first time and they will be up for this game. Varlamov is in net after a solid performance against the Jets.

Avs at home though usually have the “best form of defense is offence” mentality with 2.96 goals a game at home, and 3.06 conceded. Buffalo do struggle to put the puck in the net on the road but with O’Reilly and McGinn hyped up for this I’m hoping Buffalo can battle it. That’s why I’m not taking the Avs to win outright – it’s an important game for those two and I could see Buffalo battling hard for the upset.

Ducks vs Wild Betting Tips:

This is one where the odds made me scratch my head a little. I mean okay Wild have more points than the Ducks but you consider what a horrific start to the season the Ducks had and how they’ve turned it around? It’s fairly impressive.

They can’t play consistent yet but the Wild have looked really poor their last few games and their offense just isn’t clicking at all.

With this being their last home game before the all star break, I like the Ducks to get a good win in Anaheim tonight.

Ducks win.

    Like the tips tonight.

    Im going for the Sabres win. I think they’re in the perfect underdog position in a sense that the Avs have the better team and better goaltending but in reality the gap isn’t big at all. + O’Reilly and McGinn will get the team fired up for sure. And the bottom line is, the Sabres are getting shit done for a change. E. Johnson injury makes it possible for Buffalo. @ 3.2 odds this is a game i go for 10 times out of 10, win or lose.

    Also im going for the Ducks as well. I think for tonight’s game getting the 1st goal is crucial and the way the Wild offense is going right now, i find it very unlikely for them to get it. Im sure the Ducks -Fowler & Despres know that the Wild are significantly better team on paper right now, so they’ll be ready to play. When the Wild are having scoring troubles big goalies are nightmare for them due to average shooters overall and Gibson is exactly that. Close game but Ducks will come out on top.

    Probably going to throw something on a 3-game parlay tonight. Buffalo, Anaheim and St. Louis. Detroit just isn’t getting it done at home right now and while i admit there’s a decent chance for OT i think the Blues can hold on for a narrow win.

    Good luck !

    You’re right about the Oilers/Bolts game. It was a crazy one. Was cheering for you guys when the game was tied. Thank God or should I say thank Nilsson for leaving the net & giving the Bolts a gift to go ahead & seal deal with an empty-netter.

    Couldn’t believe that turnover by Markov! What was he thinking? Passing the puck through the slot to the other team & giving them a goal? Big no no from guy who’s usually pretty reliable. Obviously a mental error & as you mentioned, a team’s mental approach to a game is vital especially when you’re losing.
    Still love Les Habitants. 🙂

    The Wild have to conquer a huge mental challenge. Four Losses & shut out twice. Yikes! Not good for confidence. Of course, we want that to continue tonight so you win. 🙂
    Good luck tonight!

    Finally, a winning night. Had Caps, Hawks and Bolts -1.5 and with the SU bets and 2-way parlays I came out in positive territory, even though Flyers and Devils lost and Kings-Stars couldn’t make it 6, inspite of 4 goals in the 1st.

    Like today’s tips guys. I’d add under on Wild-Ducks game for low units.

    good luck
