Well we went 2-0 last night for the tips with a goal happening before 9:30 of the first and easily going over 5.5 goals ending in a 7-3 Penguins win. The Penguins blew this thing wide open starting in the 2nd period continuing into the 3rd with 6 unanswered goals. The Penguins now head home up 3-1 in the series. And if the East continues the way it has its looking like a Bruins Penguins final.
Also we have won one of our future bets already as the Sharks Kings game has to go to game 6 now.
Tonight we are treated to a big night for playoff hockey with 3 games on the schedule. First we have the Bruins and the Rangers with the Bruins looking to sweep the Rangers with a win. Then we have the Blackhawks and the Red Wings with the Hawks looking to tie the series at 2 games apiece with a win. And lastly we have the Sharks versus the Kings in game 5 with the series tied 2-2.
So lets get to the NHL Playoff betting tips for Thursday May 23rd:
Bruins vs Rangers: Rangers To Win
Well it looks as though the Bruins will be moving on to the Eastern Conference finals but I don’t think that they will sweep the Rangers. The Rangers are a good, solid team but the Bruins have had their number so far.
Look for the Rangers to win this game at home and at least force a game 5. If the Rangers were to come back and win this series it would mark the third time in NHL history that a team has come back to win the series after being down 3-0. But they need to win a game first and that will start tonight
Blackhawks vs Red Wings: Blackhawks To Win
The Blackhawks, for the first time this year, are dealing with some adversity after losing the last 2 games 4-1 and 3-1. The Hawks are well the Hawks and they won’t be coming home down 3-1.
This will be a nice bounceback game for the Blackhawks and I am betting that they will win not only this series but the rest of the games and win the series 4-2.
Also the odds have changed dramatically for betting the Hawks to win the series and if you were to bet this now the odds are 1.95 at http://www.bet365.com(Non-Americans) http://www.bovada.lv(Americans). I’m also suggesting this but not as a tip for the night just as a way for you to make some money!!
Sharks vs Kings: Over 4.5 Goals
This has been a great close series in the battle of California. Although with the exception of game 2 which ended in a 4-3 Kings win each game has come in under 4.5 goals.
I expect that to change tonight. The winner of this game will have a strangle hold on the series and neither team can afford a loss here.
This will be a good game with enough goals scored for us to win this bet. I am not sure who will win this bet but I’m fairly certain that it might be the highest scoring game of this series. Bet that this game will have a combined score of over 4.5 goals for 1.74 betting odds at Bovada(USA) or Bodog(Canada) or http://www.SportsInteraction.com for everyone else
