Sorry about the delay in tips today. I’m away for March break with the family. Tomorrows will be posted later in the day too I expect however will be back to business Friday.
A quick note to the mailing list subscribers: our mailing list goes out automatically at a set time each day however sometimes the time change where it goes an hour forward or backward affects that. If you don’t have any tips in your mailbox a few hours before the game be sure to check our site.
It was a 2-1 night last night with Tampa letting us down.
The Panthers absolutely decimated the Canadiens with a 4-1 victory in Montreal. A great way to turn their slump around.
Wings/Flyers was a nice easy over with it being over 5 goals before the 2nd period was done with. Always nice to be able to relax at that point and just enjoy the hockey.
Alright let’s get to the March 16th, 2016 NHL Betting Tips so I can go back in the pool:
Sabres vs Canadiens Betting Tips:
Buffalo seem up for this game with Ryan O’Reilly back. Jack Eichel is playing well, and Buffalo will want to get a win here in a very winnable game.
Subban being out still is a big blow and the Habs don’t seem to be blending together to fight for him.
Sabres in Regulation
Blues vs Oilers Betting Tips:
After their loss to the Flames I’d expect a stronger St. Louis Blues team to show up against the Oilers tonight. It’s been a couple of years since the Oilers last beat the Blues. I’d like to take the over but the Oilers offense just isn’t producing on a consistent basis at the moment.
Blues in regulation
Avs vs Canucks Betting Tips:
I’ve been burned by the Canucks a few times already this season. However I generally like their home form – even when they lose it’s usually a battle. Avs on the road have had serious issues lately and we saw the Canucks 5-1 win over Colorado last month. While I expect a closer game tonight I like the Canucks here.
Canucks to win
Value Bet: Blackhawks vs Flyers Betting Tips:
Blackhawks are of course the better team. They’re coming off that 5-0 loss at home against the Kings and you’d expect the Hawks to bounce back strong. They haven’t lost 3 in a row in regulation all season.
Honestly I think Chicago will win here – but the form of the Flyers at the moment has them believing anything is possible. The odds on this one are nice enough to bet and I feel I’d be kicking myself if I didn’t bet it. Up to you if you wish to go for it but I do feel there is value. On top of that the Flyers actually have dominated recent matchups between them. Going back to 2010 the Flyers have won 6 of 8 games.
Flyers to win
Experimental Betting Systems:
(Our 1st period systems are based on 3 levels of confidence that the system has for each pick. Ideally all 3 systems will be winners long runs, with the high confidence system doing the best but with the least amount of picks etc)
1st Period System High Confidence: Montreal Canadiens (3.35), Vancouver Canucks (3.10)
1st Period System Medium Confidence: St Louis Blues (2.70)
1st Period System Low Confidence: Philadelphia Flyers (3.85)
