1-2 last night, as two of the teams we tipped decided to take the night off. That was nice of them.
Blues matched Jackets shot for shot, yet were on the end of a 7-1 drubbing. That’s going to be interesting. We were slightly hesitant on the Blues because this amazing run has mostly been at home. However we decided to pull the trigger because we’ve seen teams who kill it at home and are horrible on the road and the Blues didn’t seem to fit that category. They’re not on the road again until next Thursday, with back to back home games against the Hawks and Coyotes. Will be interesting.
We had the Devils to beat the Leafs for the win – but is that really a tip? What’s going on in Toronto is just sad at the moment. I love that they outshot the Devils every period, had DOUBLE the shots on goal yet end up 4-1 losers. But then all those shots were very weak – it was like they didn’t even want to score. This is one of the worst collapses I’ve seen from a team.
Big day today in NHL, as we have the Superbowl of Hockey – the Oilers vs the Leafs. What a match that is going to be. Can games in NHL have negative goals? Let’s get to the tips:
Canadiens vs Devils Betting Tips:
Habs have lost a couple in a row now at home, and this is a big game for them against the Devils, who are starting to really pick up the points.
I think the Habs are really approaching this game seriously. They have the Bruins tomorrow, but Price is starting today. Habs realize that stopping this run, especially at home, is more important right now(plus Tokarski is a solid backup option anyway).
I’d like to bet the Habs handicap, but since the beginning of 2015 they’ve won by 2 or more just 3 times. Going to take the Habs in regulation here, and expecting a nice professional performance by the Habs.
Senators vs Blue Jackets Betting Tips:
Fresh off….man, can’t believe I am typing this. Fresh off their 7-1 thrashing of the St Louis Blues, the Blue Jackets come to Ottawa to try and stop being sweeped by the Senators.
It should be a winnable game for Ottawa, but they always seem to struggle when it comes to home ice when they’re heavy favourites.
Coyotes vs Red Wings Betting Tips:
No writeup here due to time constraints. Take the Red Wings in regulation at 1.95 odds.
