A nice night with the betting tips last night.

The Capitals vs Rangers game ended up being a push at exactly 5 goals, however our value bet on the New York Rangers at 2.75 odds paid off as they won a hard fought game. That nice start for them was huge for us, because we had them to win the 1st period at 3.80 odds too.

We also went with the Blue Jackets in regulation, and they absolutely dominated the Oilers for a nice win there. The Devils fought well but unfortunately couldn’t get the win.

We won both our bets in the OHL with Owen Sound covering the spread and the game hitting over 7 goals.

If you bet everything yesterday we said, you would have went 5-1 for a nice 7 unit profit on the day.

Extra special nice day for me. I tipped Dustin Johnson and Bubba Watson for a Top 5 finish at the WGC over at my Golf Betting Tips website, and after lacklustre first days from both of them, they both moved into the Top 5 yesterday so hopefully they can keep that form up.

Penguins vs Flames Betting Tips:

There are no easy games in hockey – well, except this one. You’d think anyway. The Penguins still hit a few roadblocks here and there but this just looks like a game they will dominate.

The Penguins offense is on fire at the moment, going up against Orto who has a 3.34 GAA and has yet to get a win this season.

This is one of those bets where if it loses you just laugh at how ridiculous hockey can be sometimes.

Penguins -1.5.

Canada: 2.20 Odds at Pinnacle Sports.
USA: +115 Odds at GT Bets
Everyone Else: 2.20 Odds at Pinnacle Sports.

Ducks vs Kings Betting Tips:

The line is 5 for this which is nice. The last 9 games between the two have been 5 or over. This should be a really fun game to watch and one of the best games of the night.

Kings are playing pretty tight lately but against a hot offense like the Ducks we see this as being a much more open game.

A bit surprised at the odds on this one – thought they’d be lower.

Ducks/Kings Over 5 Goals.

Canada: 2.05 Odds at Pinnacle Sports.
USA: +105 Odds at GT Bets
Everyone Else: 2.05 Odds at Pinnacle Sports.

Senators vs Leafs Betting Tips:

The Battle of Ontario is always a good one. Both teams out to prove something and with the latest trade involving Phaneuf, plus the young guys playing for Toronto this has the possibility to be more heated than normal.

We’re going to take Over 5.5 Goals.

Canada: 2.10 Odds at Sports Interaction.
USA: +110 Odds at GT Bets
Everyone Else: 2.00 Odds at Bet365.

Experimental Betting Systems:

With only 3 games last night I spent some time on the 1st period system – studying the data and results etc. There’s a few variables that are also producing a slight profit over the season although it’s much tighter – so I’ve added an additional “low confidence” system. I do have low confidence in it though so just a fair warning.

This is part of what I do when I am working on systems – throwing a lot of theories and formulas out there and seeing what sticks.

OHL Betting Tips: Hamilton Bulldogs -1.5. Peterborough/Mississauga Over 7 goals.

You can bet the OHL at:

Canadians: Bodog and 888 Sports.
Americans: Bovada.
Everyone Else: 888 Sports.

1st Period High Confidence: Penguins 2.28

1st Period Medium Confidence: Lightning 2.43

1st Period Low Confidence: Flyers 2.75, Panthers 2.70

Best place for first period betting is 888 Sports or for Canadians, Sports Interaction.

For Americans you can place 1st period bets at GT Bets
