We had a great betting night last night, going 2-1 to continue our nice betting run. Our only loss was the Predators losing at the Kings – with +138 odds it was hard not to bet on that one. Even then until the 3rd period that was looking a solid value bet, before Jeff Carter stepped up to be the difference maker. We won our other two bets with the Penguins scoring before 9:30, and the Leafs winning in a thriller.
A solid night of hockey – and I’m hoping for more of the same tonight. We’ve got a whopping 11 games on the board tonight. The Habs visit the Islanders, Minnesota are the next team to step up to the plate against the Chicago Blackhawks, and a very interesting game between the Flyers and Rangers – both of whom have been underperforming this season.
Let’s see what we’ve got for March 5th, 2013 NHL Betting Tips wise:
Canadiens vs Islanders Betting Tips: Habs to Win
The Islanders picked up a rare home win against the Ottawa Senators on Sunday, March 3rd in a shootout victory. But the Senators looked tired, and looked like their injuries had finally caught up with the team. The Islanders meanwhile, are taking on a Habs team on a hot streak, with Pacioretty just killing it.
The Islanders are one of the only teams to beat the Habs this season too, and the surging Canadiens are going to be out for revenge. I’m liking the Habs to win, and even moreso with the 1.86 odds at Pinnacle.
Flyers vs Rangers Betting Tips: Flyers To Win
This is one of those bets where the odds really dictate it – we’re getting 2.37 odds at 5Dimes on the Flyers to win.
The Rangers are heavy favourites due to the reaction of the betting public with the return of Rick Nash – in reality, the Flyers are a team who really have their crap together lately. They’ve been looking solid, and this is a huge game for them as it would really give them a boost in the standing over the Rangers. Philly are 5-2-0 right now, are coming off a two day break, and have been defending extremely well.
Should the Rangers be the favourites for this one? Yes. But not as heavy favourites as they are – 2.37 is value I just can’t pass up.
Blackhawks vs Wild Betting Tips: Over 5 Goals
The Blackhawks have had a quiet few games lately – but I think that’s all going to change here. The Wild defeated Chicago in a shootout victory in their last match together – and hey look at that, suddenly the Blackhawks have motivation! They want to erase the memory of that loss – and they’re going to come out on fire here.
I would be recommending the Blackhawks -1.5 however the odds just aren’t good for it – but we’re getting 2.00 odds on just over 5 goals at 5Dimes which is sick. Usually those lines are as bad as 1.75 when it’s an over/under 5 goal line, so I’m loving it.
