January 21st, 2013 NHL Betting Tips
That was a great night of hockey and betting as we went 2-1 and what a game it was between the Flyers and the Sabres. What was a back and forth game for the first two periods was capped off by Buffalo scoring four unanswered goals. And what a game by Thomas Vanek 5 points WOW!! So hopefully you took my advice and bet the Sabres -1.5 for an amazing +240
Mondays were typically a slow day for hockey but with this being a shortened season everyday will be a good day. With 7 games on the schedule for Monday January 21st there is lots of things to bet on including the Toronto Maple Leafs fresh off of their win over the Habs on Saturday taking on the Buffalo Sabres who played yesterday and won. Marty St. Louis and the Tampa Bay Lightning facing the Brooklyn Islanders oops I mean the New York Islanders sorry I got a little ahead of myself. Also a game featuring two teams who both pulled off impressive wins in their first games with the Florida Panthers vs the Ottawa Senators so with all that being said lets get to the NHL betting tips for Monday January 21st:
Lightning vs Islanders: Lightning -1.5 puck line
While both teams have lots of firepower and young talent the Lightning addressed their biggest weakness in the off season and added two good defenseman in Sami Salo and Matt Carle as well as giant goalie Anders Lindback who at 6’6 is ready to prove that he’s a capable starter in the NHL. And as Marty St.Louis’ performance from Saturday night shows you that this team is more than just Stammer and with the moves made are ready to be considered a contender.
John Taveres and the Islanders are still a few pieces away from being a great team and with the Lightning rolling right now this is a no brainer Pinnacle Sports has the best betting odds for the Lightning to win by 2 at +252 but be sure to check our NHL Live Betting Odds because the odds change a lot and you’ll surely want the best odds available
Panthers vs Senators: Senators to win
With the Ottawa Senators and the Florida Panthers both easily winning their season opening games both of these teams are coming into this with some early season momentum but this will be the Senators home opener and the faithful Kanata fans should help carry this team to their 2nd win in a row. Expect a spirited bout that may involve some fisticuffsAnd last year we all saw what the Sens were capable of and with a year to get better acquainted the Sens again could be a surprise and that’s why you should pick them to win over at 5Dimes
Where the money line bet for the Sens to win is -145 All other vegas odds has this at -155 so its a great value
Blues vs Predators: game total under 5
Although either team really doesn’t have any offensive superstars they get by on fantastic defense, goalies and overall team play. And don’t let the St. Louis Blues’ first game fool you, a 6-0 beating handed to the Red Wings, that’s not typical Blues hockey. And for the Nashville Predators who lost in a shoot out to the cough cough Columbus Blue Jackets they will be looking to get back to what has made them so successful over the years and that’s defense first hockey.
I expect this to be a low scoring game as both teams have amazing goalies and great defense so bet the under at BetOnline where the odds are at +100 which is by far the best betting odds available
