Well it’s -35 here in Kingston but if we have more nights like last night I’ll just light a pile of money on fire to keep me warm!
First the #badnewsbarrett – we lost with the Sabres vs Panthers. We had under 5 goals there, and at least the good news was we didn’t have to sweat for long with FIVE FREAKING GOALS in the first period. Amazing. Then the 2nd and 3rd period go exactly as planned with just 1 goal in each. Twilight Zone shit was going on in that 1st period.
But onto the wins. We had the Islanders vs Rangers Over 5.5 at hefty 2.00 odds, and that one went over before the end of the 2nd period. A nice easy win there.
We then went wham, bam thank you ma’m with the underdog pick, as the Blue Jackets beat the Kings in a thriller going 5-3 on the night.
Then a welcome early birthday present for me, as the Jets at sick 2.95 odds got the massive win against the Ducks.
Can’t beat nights like last night. If only the Sabres/Panthers hadn’t let us down because an accumulator with all 4 teams paid out at $300 for $10 over at Bet365.
4 games on tonight. Philly play Carolina in the game that was canceled last night due to a snowstorm. I like when they get it back on track literally the night after. My Habs take on the Penguins, the Blackhawks are in Detroit and Phoenix have a tricky game in Calgary.
Let’s get to the NHL Betting Tips for January 22, 2014:
Penguins vs Canadiens: Over 5.5 Goals
Massive price on this one which I love – 2.20 odds. Pens have had a ton of high scoring games lately – conceding goals like crazy but still pulling out the win. Habs the last two games have been similar.
These two did play in late November and it was a 3-2 victory for the Habs there. But Montreal were on a nice run at the time. With both teams very inconsistent, especially on the D, I love the Habs here.
2.20 odds are available at http://www.carbonsports.ag.
Value Bet: Penguins vs Canadiens: Habs to Win
Speaking of, nice price on the Habs at 2.67. They did well against Pittsburgh 2 months ago, and Penguins will be rattled after that Florida loss. Great value on the Habs.
Unfortunately that’s all for tips tonight. Take some time and sign up at WBX: World Betting Exchange and practise some backing, laying and “greening up” with tonights games. We wrote an article explaining what the deal is with betting exchanges.
Now I’m off to spend my last day as a 32 year old shovelling some goddamned snow. So old 🙁
