It was a good day yesterday with the betting tips. And a really bloody fun day.

It started off well with the Over 5.5 goals in the Tampa/Flyers game. That one went Over during the 2nd period which was great.

We had Over 5.5 in the Habs/Leafs game and after 1 period there were 5 goals so that was also bloody nice! The Habs won that one 5-3 in what was a great contest.

We also had Over 5.5 in the Rangers/Jackets game and with 4 goals in the 1st period that was a nice relaxing one to watch and go over. The Rangers had a massive 3rd period turn around to go from 4-2 down to winning 5-4. Awesome game.

Hopefully you caught our update for the Wild game – advising that with Kuemper not in net it was a no bet. It’s one reason that when odds are the same I’ll always place my bet at Bet365 – they have the ability to cash out your bet and in that instance I only lost a couple of bucks on it. Such a great feature especially with hockey and late team news etc.

It’s an odd day today and most of what I’m liking is based more on feeling than anything else.

I think the Bruins will beat the Hurricanes today. No real justification for it but if Rask is in net I like them continuing from yesterdays form.

I also like the Hawks to beat the Preds. The way the Hawks are playing at the moment they really shouldn’t win that one but again just a strong feeling.

I also think Flyers/Jackets goes over.

Penguins vs Lightning: This is one where boy do the stats etc not back it up or even come close to it so it’s hard to justify it – but I’m taking the Tampa Bay Lightning to win.

I’m basing it purely on the break and the price of this one. Penguins have had a rough time of it so far this year coming off breaks. There’s not a big enough sample size but they do seem a bit rusty. I’d like to think after Tampas slip up yesterday where they just got too confident and then got shell shocked that they won’t be complacent.

I just feel there’s value here but it’s a risky bet.

Anyway that’s it for today.
