Quick note that there will be no more 1st period tips for the rest of the season. I am the one that runs the system and I’m away for 10 days to Texas starting tomorrow for Wrestlemania weekend, and won’t have time to do them. By the time I’m back the season will be close to ending and so I’ve decided to wrap it up and study it over the Summer to see how it may affect things next season.
We’ve got another busy NHL schedule tonight with 9 games in play. The Red Wings managed to hold on to beat the Sabres and now they go to Montreal hoping to continue the misery on the Habs campaign this season. The streaking Minnesota Wild host the Chicago Blackhawks who have turned things around, and we’ve got a good game with the Bruins vs the Devils as well.
Let’s get to tonights betting tips:
Devils vs Bruins Betting Tips:
I can’t ignore the price on the New Jersey Devils here who are fairly big underdogs at home to the Boston Bruins. The Bruins have struggled a lot lately and are 1-5 with their lone win against the Leafs. I know the Bruins have a good record against the Devils(won last 6), Rask has a solid record against them and Devils are coming off that tough 3-2 loss against the Hurricanes – but that was a game that was decided early on. Maybe the Devils had too much confidence in Wedgewood there I don’t know.
This just feels like a game where the odds are more 50/50. I know the Bruins are an excellent road team, but Devils still have a lot to play for and I think can at least run this one close.
Devils to Win.
Penguins vs Sabres Betting Tips:
Penguins offense has been fairly impressive the last few games but their goaltending has been sloppy. Playing without pressure the Sabres are always up for games and are usually guaranteed some goals. Other than the Leafs 4-1 defeat, the last time they scored less than 2 in a game was March 1st against the Oilers. I like this one to have goals aplenty.
Over 5 Goals.
