1-1 last night for a slight loss. The 3rd period of the Canucks game was what we were hoping for in the whole game. In those 6 minutes we knew that’s what those teams were capable of. Unfortunately the other 54 minutes saw them lacking.

Penguins fought off a feisty Avalanche team to get the win for us.

One quick thing I wanted to mention before I get to the tips today: posting your bets in the comments.

We get a lot of comments on the site every day with people posting their bets and so on. We love it. We love interacting with you guys and we’re always open to discussion on games we’ve not tipped etc.

But I can’t recommend this enough – when writing out your bets or tips for the day, provide reasoning.

There are two major reasons for that:

(1) No-one cares about your bets. It’s true. You’re just a voice in the wind. You’re a random commentor that’s just shown up. Don’t worry – it applies to us too! If we only posted tips every day with no reasoning, we wouldn’t have a huge a following as we do. However we provide reasoning and show that we’ve put work into it, as opposed to just picking names out of a hat.

(2) It makes you better. Trust us. Our winrates for NHL are better than they were a few years ago, prior to us having this website. The reason for that is when you are typing a pick out and recommending it to others – it makes you feel more responsible, and you start to think more about what you’re writing.

It also encourages discussion, and allows people to point out any flaws or play devils advocate – which makes you a lot better. That’s a big part of when we do tips. If one of us feels very strongly about a pick – the other one will then play devils advocate attempting to poke holes in the theory.

I saw a lot of people on the Habs last night for example. One of the first things I said to Scott yesterday was “The Habs have beaten the Bruins the last 7 games they’ve played” – a stat I know very well because I have a brother in law who is a die hard Bruins fan.

The first thing he says is “Yeah but how many of those were without Price?” and then we go from there – obviously with that trend being a lot less of a factor. And we thankfully stayed away from Montreal.

And that doesn’t apply just to our comments too – if you post on forums, on reddit or wherever – provide reasoning.

Trust me – by taking the time to write a few sentences as to why you’re picking a team or picking an over/under or whatever – it’ll make you a better sports bettor immediately.

Onto todays tips:

Canadiens vs Red Wings Betting Tips:

The Habs are starting to struggle a little bit and are going to want to get a big win tonight against a Red Wings team they’ve dominated in recent times.

Tokarski is in net tonight, and we like the Over. We had a discussion about another “Sparks situation” – but I just don’t see that. It’s not like Tokarski has never played in the NHL before and I don’t think the Habs will be over protective.

The last few games between the two haven’t been super high scoring or anything but I’m hoping for a pumped up Habs team looking for a win against a Red Wings team who see this as a very winnable game.

Over 5.5 Goals.

Canada: 2.30 Odds at 5Dimes.
USA: +130 Odds at 5Dimes.
Everyone Else: 2.30 Odds at 5Dimes.

Lightning vs Senators Betting Tips:

You never know what Tampa team is going to show up. However they’re heavily favoured against a very solid Senators team who are great on the road.

Odds alone dictate a bet on Senators win here.

Canada: 2.45 Odds at 5Dimes.
USA: +145 Odds at 5Dimes.
Everyone Else: 2.45 Odds at 5Dimes.

Capitals vs Panthers Betting Tips:

Capitals are one of the best teams in the NHL at the moment. Going against a Florida team who have struggled recently. Florida are a feisty team – but that’s usually good for the Capitals. They like a challenge and they’ll get one here.

Capitals to win.

Canada: 1.70 Odds at Pinnacle Sports.
USA: -140 Odds at 5Dimes.
Everyone Else: 1.70 Odds at Pinnacle Sports.

Blackhawks vs Predators Betting Tips:

I’m a big believer in team chemistry and having something to play for and the Blackhawks are great in both categories. They looked so good when they had that opening run a few years ago, and now they have the Kane point record.

It’s the type of motivation they need and I like the Hawks for the win tonight.

Blackhawks to win.

Canada: 2.15 Odds at 5Dimes.
USA: +115 Odds at 5Dimes.
Everyone Else: 2.15 Odds at 5Dimes.

Flames vs Sabres Betting Tips:

Both teams can score, both teams can concede. Last 4 games of both have went over 5.5 goals. Some key goalie and defense injuries going on as well.

This has to be an Over 5.5 goals bet.

Canada: 2.02 Odds at Pinnacle Sports.
USA: +101 Odds at 5Dimes.
Everyone Else: 2.02 Odds at Pinnacle Sports.

  • Mr Dj 613

    Wash
    Sens
    Blues
    Chicago
    Calgary

    Jets and bluejackets too tight
    May pick a tie …

    Good luck to all !!

    • Dave

      I’m picking jets because they have clicked as a team and are filled with heavy body’s that are going to crash the net all game and maxi pads in Nets will spring a leak and I don’t see the cbj getting easy goals in this game because the Wpg play good d also with the way helleybuck plays in nets I think he will have another strong performance tonight ( Jets in regulation)

      As for the sens I don’t see them winning this game I find with the sens they have holes in their d but have a good offence I’m thinking of a close game but sens are a different team when they play Tampa bay and they usually struggle so my prediction would be either a close game in overtime or 3-1 Tampa bay I’ll let you decide ( Tampa bay for the win)

      For the St louis game I feel they can steal this game with the lack of conifidence in the net with Elliot but this is biased because I don’t like how Elliot plays especially with Simmonds in his face the whole game I expect Phi to have a lot of scoring chances in this game and burry the ones they need when it comes down to it ( Phi wins 3-2 )

      • Dave

        Overall I took these on point spread

        DET, Tb, Was, Phi, Chi , Wpg ,Buf,

        The reason I took buf would be cgy winning streak at home and the current winning streak has to come to an end it always does in the NHL no matter who you are (exception for the Sens last year pulling a magic trick) Buffalo is a tricky team to bet on because it’s either they show up or they are there cheering the other team on playing sloppy but I do believe if it’s Ullmark in nets tonight they have a good chance of winning this game.

        • Mr Dj 613

          Ya the sens are a more home winning team
          But I feel there due for another

          Offense is stronger but team chemistry is unreal
          There only a couple of other teams in the nhl that come together and know how to put goals on the board .

          I play for fun
          I don’t take it too serious with reasoning behind it

          I enjoy hockey and love to watch it I was more involved with stats players injuries about 10yrs ago but I honestly have no time to follow 26teams anymore

          I have my fav and work off that and others comments

          If someone dsnt like what I posted
          It’s seriously takes them more time to reply to it them to just keep scrolling

          Good luck tonight !

          • Dave

            I almost took the sens as well because they can win this game just last year they killed me for a lot of money against Tampa bay and couldn’t score on Bishop but yea I play for fun too because betting on sports is a coin flip in my opinion and hockey is a wonderful sport that you can have a for sure team to win by looking at stats or trends but then it’s a close game and the puck bounced funny on the ice and the under dogs burry a breakway goal and kill your ticket But that’s sports ment for fun and if you try to look at a science behind it then your always gonna kick yourself in the ass the next day because you will lose by the underdogs

          • Dave

            Good picks tho and good luck tonight should be an entertaining night of hockey last night I got killed because I took the bos game over on pro line I had bos by 2 and over with edm and pit by 2 and over

          • Mr Dj 613

            I AGREE 100%
            It’s 50/50 80% of the time

            If I have to leave reason why I picked a team
            I’d be writing all day and get nothing done
            Lol

            Again
            I totally agree 100%
            Thats why I like too see what others are picking or leaning towards

            Best of luck bro !!

          • Dave

            If you ever get bored there’s a research video done by Harvard showing you can win a lot of money betting. Their main structure from what I remember is for example you have $1000 to bet with and you bet $100 a day on two games and if you win above 57% of the time you can turn that $1000 into $300000 in two years by betting more when you take in a higher bankroll but only bet on two teams it was pretty interesting

          • Mr Dj 613

            I JUST saw it !!!
            Like a couple of days ago
            U need to hit 52-54% he says if I recall correctly

            Was watching it at night was falling asleep to it lol

          • Mr Dj 613

            If u got time
            Check channel on YouTube
            “The factman1”
            He’s also pretty smart guy

          • Indieja

            We’re already at it in another thread, but this goes for here too.

            I get that you “play for fun”, and that’s fine. I think most do. You don’t want to post reasoning, because that’s “taking it too serious”.

            But you still go ahead and post your picks. Why do this? What’s the point?

            If you win, you can go “I told you so”, but what good would that do? If you lose, no one cares anyway. At this point, you’re just a fart in the wind.

            If you post reasoning (even a one-liner), people can see your logic and may even follow your picks later on. It makes it possible to understand, plus, as stated above, it makes you better in the process.

            We’re then able to hold a discussion about the picks. And let’s face it, it’s not about time. Because you’re here posting in every thread anyway, so you clearly have plenty of that.

            Before you flip out, as you have a tendency of doing, step back and contemplate what I asked. Then respond in a civil tone.

          • Mr Dj 613

            No lol
            Clearly u got the beef !!
            I’m here to have fun n fun only. I post everyday “yes” when I have the time to do so in the am .

            I don’t really give reasoning because I’m not following injury list or past games 5 years ago !

            I only follow the last 10 games played and make my decision off that.

            It’s 50/50 bro !
            I could be right and not look up shit or do any homework and u could spend a cpl hrs doin ur research and come out a LOSER which is already CLEAR!!!

            I been on this site a week
            U have chirped me 3
            Times now asshole !!
            And getting personal talking about my education level which u have no idea lol

            I haven’t seen u post much in the odds of
            Winning so keep up the great work shit talking other ppl and there picks !

          • Indieja

            Christ, there’s no reasoning with you, is there?

            Nevermind Bubba, carry on providing absolutely zero value to anyone, and cluttering up the comment section with your noise.

          • Mr Dj 613

            As for the
            “fart in the wind ”
            Comment

            As far as I’m concerned it’s all a fart in the wind buddy !!!

          • Mr Dj 613

            And again
            I dnt give reason

            If I win yes I win
            And who’s ever is paying attention to each other’s picks shouldn’t
            Have to give reason

            They will knw whom ever is throwing out picks is either coming in strong
            1/5 3/5 or weak .

            I honestly only have shorts periods of time to look and post

            Anyways fuck off with the chirpes n just keep scrolling I already gotta headache for a wife

            Dnt need ur negativity

          • Mr Dj 613

            And I can be civil ….
            But when u go off topic about someone’s education ur stepping out of line

            Making references to special needs ppl

            Ur a fuckin asshole bro

      • Mr Dj 613

        Hey Dave
        Do u bet NFL ?
        Send me your email…

        • Dave

            Never got into the MLB.
            I might try it this coming up ….

    • Chris Shaw

      Imma need to see some more explanation, voice in the wind.

      • Mr Dj 613

        Blowing away

  • Naiver Rueda

    Picks NHL
    Florida
    Buffalo
    Chicago
    Columbus
    Montreal

    • Chris Shaw

      Oooooo you didn’t provide reasoning!

      • Mr Dj 613

        Lol !!!!

  • grant

    Sens +165 on Bodog…Go Sens Go!

  • magus1349

    Calgary in regulation.
    They won last 5 home meting with Buffalo, they play prety good at home and i think they keep the trend.

  • Dave

    I’m worried about the Washington game now that I seen it won’t be Holtby in nets and Montoya has been strong lately think I might go take another bet with fla

  • ET

    Jackets @ Jets: Jets have a good home record (7-4-1) and If Hellebucyk starts (3-0-0) on this btob against McElhinney (0-4-1) with Bobrovsky injured (huge loss for Jackets) this game goes in the Jets favour.
    Sens@Lightening: Sens have the edge in this one with a great road record, won 3/4 games & TB has had 3 days off so they could be rusty;

    Caps @ Fla: Something to consider if you’re think’n on picking the Caps to win: the last 8 (between these 2) have been decided by1 goal, 3 of which have been decided in a SO.

    Buf@Cal: Good chance to win the Over when you consider the Flames GAA (3.52) is the highest in the league.

    Good luck tonight!

    I also like the flames win in regulation… Calgary has been changing recently and their form has been top.. If they continue like this they will battle for a playoff spot… But the over seems also a good pick… Even if they have been winning they have concede so many goals… That’s there main problem.

    Good luck to all. Just a little concerned of the +5.5 on Montreal – Detroit because these teams are very solid also, but yes with tokarski I can see some value in that

  • Marc Lachance

    I usually wait until 6pm EST before puting my bets down to have the most up to date news but I have to work early today.

    -Mtl to win: They need this win, I bet against them last night and they are ma favorite team. Defense was sloppy and I can’t see this happening twice in a row. Tokarsky in goal means Mtl don’t play as deep, low scores but odds were too good for Mtl. I did a fantasy bet on Tie for 3.8

    -TB in regulation. Palat is most likely back I’m hoping this will wake up the Bolts, Bishop is constent, he just doesnt have the same help than lundqvist or Price as.
    Buf/Cgy over 5.5, value seem to be there so it was an obvious one.
    Chic/Nash over 5: Crawford not in goal, Kane and Weber are hot. worst case I get my money back maybe? lol
    Place a fantasy bet on the Jets in regulation because I like having a bet on the game I can Watch and it’s pretty much the only game I can watch tonight.
    I’d like to say that I have learn alot from reading your prédictions and while I havent been in the “profits” for long enough to consider myself a good handicapper, it trully add alot more entertainement to the game I love watching.

    • Marc Lachance

      Beside mtl losing I won all my bets.

  • M. (Thelonious)

    Tonight I think is a risky night. Not to many things I like. The most, the Under in St.Louis. Their recent h2h is under, Elliott has played well against Flyers and Neuvirth is having a great season so far. 12 of the 14 games played at the Scottrade Center this season have ended with 5 or less goals. Maybe the Sens ML has some value too.

    • M. (Thelonious)

      Little bad luck with the Under; the 6th goal coming with only 2 seconds remaining…grrr!!

  • lion

    Hi guys,
    Play only to Canadians. I think they ll beat red wings. All other games are risky.

  • ET

    Hi dusan, Sorry just read your comment. I’d be happy to explain but I’m not sure I understand what you’re asking for. Please clarify. Hope it’s not too late for tonight’s games. Thanks
