Both the series played yesterday were tied up, as the Tampa Bay Lightning and Pittsburgh Penguins both won.
The Penguins continued to fire the shots at Holtby and even though he had a tremendous performance he still conceded two. Tampa Bay cleaned the clocks of the Islanders with a huge dominant win.
It’s going to make for some interesting Game 3s and it’ll be very interesting to see if the Capitals can get a big W in Pittsburgh or not.
Today is Sunday, May 1st 2016 and we’ve got two Game 2s today as the Dallas Stars look to make it 2-0 against the Blues, and the Sharks also look to make it 2-0 over the Predators before both teams go on the road.
Should be a couple of good games although Canadians will be more focused on the Raptors tonight. I think we’ve learned that the Raptors REALLY need the support of the crowd and when they’re fully behind them, you get moments like Norm Powells in Game 5. I still watch that steal/dunk multiple times a day. This play for people who aren’t big into NBA. Raptors turned it around after that and got a massive win.
The Leafs got the lottery pick and we are busy analyzing everything and come draft time will have NHL Draft Betting Tips for you. For now let’s get to the betting tips in todays games:
Blues vs Stars Game 2 Betting Tips:
Scott: Game 1 was close. But with less than 5 minutes left in the 3rd the Stars scored and held on for the 2-1 win. I expect this game to have more goals than the first and I like the Blues to come away with the win and even the series at a game a piece
Graeme: The Stars have a big lead going into this one and the pressure is on the Blues. Blues obviously are one of the best teams on the road however I think the Stars, who had the best regular season home form in the West, have what it takes here. The pressure will be off them after Game 1 but they’ll still know the importance of this one. Going to St. Louis with a 2-0 lead considering the Blues home form this year would be massive.
Most books have the Stars around 1.80 but 1.91 at William Hill. Huge price there if you’re betting on the Stars. 10 bets like that and you’ve profited a unit regardless of result!
Predators vs Sharks Game 2 Betting Tips:
Scott: The Preds were up 1-0 at the start of the 3rd then the Sharks caught fire and scored 5 in the period to win 5-2. The Sharks are in great position now. They have won one at home where the play worse then they do on the road. The Preds were the better team through 2 periods and if the can find a way to have that effort for 3 periods then they should come away with the win.
Graeme: Agan I have to go with the Predators to win here based on the odds. I felt they were the better team in Game 1 before momentum switched to the Sharks. It happens but I love the price on the Predators. Predators to win.
