Wow – we’re just two days into the NHL Playoffs and holy crap – best Playoffs ever?

It sure seems like it. Every series has been amazing, and full of goals. Practically every team has had a “never say die” attitude about them. That Wild/Avs game last night, the Blackhawks game, the Habs game – wow, just wow.

Just some incredible series.

We’ve already got our series picks for round 1 made, so it’s a bit weird when doing daily NHL Betting Tips as we don’t want to contradict those picks at all – yet our thoughts may have changed.

So when we do tips for the playoffs each day, we will be making these NHL Tips and predictions WITHOUT taking into account the series bets. We get a ton of new visitors every day and we know there’ll be a lot of people who haven’t followed our series picks. So it’s only fair that we provide tips without taking them into consideration at all.

Today, Friday April 18th 2014, we have 3 games on board. Game 2 for Montreal visiting Tampa, Game 2 for the Stars taking on the Ducks, and Game 1 for Red Wings visiting the favourites for the Stanley Cup, the Boston Bruins.

Canadiens vs Lightning Betting Tips: Over 5 Goals

How can you not, after Game 1?

That was a thrilling game that both teams went crazy at. Price, prior to overtime, was leaking goals like crazy with 4 goals in 25 shots. The Habs offense was immense, firing the shots like crazy.

Based on everything in Game 1, have to bet Over 5 goals tonight at 1.80 odds.

Bruins vs Red Wings: Bruins in Regulation

Considering they’re massive favourites – we’re actually getting a nice price of 1.83 odds on this one.

Detroit can upset the Bruins – but the big expectation is Boston dominate this series. If they do so then we’ll never get odds as good as this again for a win in regulation at home – so have to jump on them here.

Perry had 6 shots in Game 1. I see another very offensive orientated game and Perry looked like he was able to shoot practically at will – he got free a lot. -115 odds for Corey Perry Over 4 shots on goal.

Bet that at Carbon Sports.
