After an incredible February, we unfortunately started March off with a 1-2 night.
We got the win with the Bruins in regulation, although man was that a tight one throughout. Made for a very fun game to watch from a betting perspective and it was good to come out a winner.
We lost on the Hurricanes/Devils over as they could only total 4 goals, and Oilers vs Sabres ended up being a solid performance by the goalies. The offenses had a lot of chances as we expected but both Talbot and Lehner pulled off some great saves.
Tonight is a much quieter night in the NHL with just three games – two of which feature heavy favourites. The Washington Capitals are expected to blow away the Toronto Maple Leafs, and the Anaheim Ducks are heavy favourites against the Montreal Canadiens.
Capitals vs Leafs Betting Tips:
The Capitals are at some of the lowest odds you can see them in hockey. Currently 1.31 and dropping fast.
Here’s our tip: don’t bet this game. The odds in regulation or the handicap don’t make it any better. However there is zero value in this Leafs team at the moment. Their offense just looks so uninspired.
Seeing so many people jump on the Capitals despite the odds. At that price in hockey you’re playing a very dangerous game. If you must bet it I’d take Over 5.5 but I can’t recommend that based on the weak Leafs offense right now.
Canadiens vs Ducks Betting Tips:
After a couple of solid results, the Montreal Canadiens were brought back down to earth with a thumping from the Sharks.
I expect this to continue with the Anaheim Ducks. The Ducks offense faltered slightly against Oilers and Sabres but bounced back against the Kings.
The Oilers/Sabres games are a slight concern with the way the Ducks played against weaker opposition. However the Canadiens aren’t close to Oilers/Sabres territory. Montreal will raise their game and that will cause the Ducks to raise their game.
Anaheim play a solid defensive game at home and I like them to grind out the result here.
Ducks win in regulation.
