Let’s make this a habit! We went 2-1 last night for the NHL betting tips.
First we had the Penguins to win in regulation against the Jets. This game was a win for us but I didn’t expect it to turn out the way it did. This was a great back and forth battle that saw the teams exchange goals until the Pens scored 2 in the third to seal the deal 6-5. In his return Malkin scored twice and added an assist. We had the Lightning – Oilers game over 5.5 and we won this won when the Oilers won 5-3. Our loss came when the injured Hurricanes held off the Predators 2-1.
The other games last night had the Ducks beating the Canucks 4-3 in overtime and the Sharks beating the Blackhawks 3-2 in a shootout.
4 games for us today: Stars vs Islanders, Jackets vs Rangers, Panthers vs Canadiens and the Flames vs the Avalanche.

So let’s get to the NHL betting tips for Monday, January 6th 2014
Blue Jackets vs Rangers: Rangers to win in regulation
This is the 3rd game of the 4 game season series between these two clubs. The Rangers won the first game 4-2 the Jackets the 2nd also by a core of 4-2
The Rangers are riding high on the momentum they gained in their last game when the destroyed the Toronto Maple Leafs 7-1. Blue Jackets goalie Bobrovsky hasn’t been able to beat the Rangers in his last 5 games so with him expected to get the start tonight this only helps our chances
Not only was that game a much needed win for the Rangers but I have a feeling that they are going to put the embarrassing start to the 2013 season behind them and move forward in 2014. This team has a bunch of talent all over the roster to not be considered a playoff team.
Betting on the New York Rangers to win gets us a decent 1.64 set of odds but by betting the Rangers to win in Regulation the odds increase dramatically.

Stars vs Islanders: Over 5.5
This is the first of 2 games between these teams this season. Both teams have had up and down first halves of the season with the Stars having a much better record than the Isles.
Both of these teams are built for offense so I expect there to be a lot of goals going on the board with very little Defense being played. The Stars are without 3 of their best defensemen with Trevor Daley, Sergei Gonchar and Stephane Robidas all sidelined with injuries. The Islanders are without Lubomir Visnovsky and Radek Martinek. So with all of these Defensemen injured this only helps us when placing this bet.
Home Goals vs Away Goals: Home Goals -1.5
With this bet we are saying that the home teams will score more goals then the away teams on the night.
When you look at the matchups this seems like an easy win with only the Stars vs Islanders game causing us any worry
We have the Rangers, Habs, Avalanche and the Islanders to score more goals on the night vs the Flames, Blue Jackets, Stars and Panthers. I like our chances with this bet.
