Only three games last night, but two excellent thrillers in there. Canucks vs Blackhawks was amazing and hopefully you didn’t tune out too early – Canucks were up 3-1 at the end of the 2nd period and just gave their lead away, before stealing it in overtime.

Capitals vs Sharks was also a thrill ride, with Capitals leading at the end of the first, Sharks leading at the end of the second, and it finally going to overtime.

Let’s get to the tips for February 12th, 2015:

Leafs vs Islanders Betting Tips:

One game after they beat the Oilers, the Leafs were back on the losing track against the Rangers. However to their credit they did fight well.

They take on the Islanders, who are on their own struggles at the moment. They had a bad run at the end of the month and although they’ve won two in a row – it’s against the Oilers and the Sabres, and they scraped through in both games.

However they are just a better team than the Leafs this season, and we’re hoping that the loss by the Rangers has killed any momentum the Leafs had. Take Islanders in regulation time at 1.76 odds.

Ducks vs Hurricanes Betting Tips:

We went into this one expecting the line to be swayed on Under 5.5 goals. However we’re surprised to see it’s Over 5.5 goals in this one.

It’s only 9 days ago that these two teams together put up 9 goals in a game. The Carolina offense are running hot and cold, but they have had MULTIPLE games where they have scored 4+ goals in recent times – against the Sharks, Ducks, Lightning and Leafs. The Ducks are conceding goals like crazy and while I’m sure their aim is to stop that – and they practised a lot harder on the D-Zone – this road game isn’t ideal for that. Take Over 5.5 goals at 2.15 odds.

Lightning vs Blues Betting Tips:

This season, we’re always a bit hesitant about tipping against the Blues due to Tarasenko. Lightning have also let us down quite a few times this season. But the 1.86 odds are too good to ignore. It’s a big game for the Lightning, who will be out for revenge after the game against the Blues 9 days ago. In that one, Lightning were actually the better team and dominated the Blues and were unlucky.

We’ll take Lightning for the win. 1.86 odds including overtime and shootout, and based on the way they last played, we’ll be placing a half unit on Lightning -1.5 at 3.50 odds.

Canadians – remember the free bet.
