We had a win with the St Louis Blues last night, who defeated the Phoenix Coyotes 2-1 in a tight game. Losses in the other picks unfortunately. The Leafs went to Toronto and played just like they should have been doing against Boston, with a great performance that got them the W. My lack of faith in the Rangers offense was correct – unfortunately the Lightning managed to slip 2 by the Rangers to pick up the win there.
Quiet night of hockey tonight. Just 3 games. The Leafs play host to the Sabres in the 5th and final game between these teams this season. They’ve both won 2 at home in that series. The Penguins play the Capitals for the 2nd time. The first time was in November 20th and the Penguins ran out 4-0 winners. And the Canucks play the Ducks who have beaten them twice already this season, both at home.
Let’s get on with the NHL Betting Tips for January 15th, 2014.
Lot of short odds games today. Leafs are 1.60 and Penguins 1.47 and Ducks 1.57. Probably worth putting them in an accumulator at Bet365 where you get up to a 50% Parlay bonus. For a treble, you get a 7.5% bonus.
Home vs Away: Home Teams -1.5
With the 3 home team favourites, I like betting home teams -1.5. I think there’s a chance of a big win in the Leafs game or the Penguins game, and the Ducks should most likely win or at worst, lose by 1 goal.
Back the Home Teams to win tonight at Bet365.
Unfortunately, that’s all I’m going with tonight. As I said, a treble at Bet365 might be worth it too. As much as I’d like to go with the Leafs, a flu bug in their camp is putting me off.
