Sorry about the lateness in tips today guys. Both kids were home from school today so this is the first time I’ve been able to get on the computer all day.
An unfortunate bad night last night. The Red Wings managed to blow a 2 goal lead and lost to the Wild in OT, while the Blackhawks decided to apparently take the night off against the Predators. That was nice of them.
It’s Monday, February 24th 2014 and we have 6 games on the board tonight. The big one of course is the Montreal Canadiens vs the Boston Bruins and man am I nervous for that one. Montreal have won 2 of the previous 3 games including a 4-1 demolition in Boston. They’re coming off the back of a big win over the Leafs but ick – Bruins are a beast at the moment.
Let’s get to the NHL Tips and then I need a freaking nap! Kids can run you ragged. Writeups will be short because I have the kids chattering away in my ear about My Little Pony and Minecraft.
Bruins vs Habs: Bruins to win in Regulation
I said this the other day – I’m going to ride the Bruins until they lose; simple as that. They are on this great run, and I really can’t see the Habs picking up the win. The value on the Habs is nice at 2.65 inc OT/SO and 3.75 odds to win in regulation. They’ve did the business in Boston before.
But I just can’t see beyond the Bruins for this one. Back them at 1.86 odds in regulation at http://www.5Dimes.eu for Americans(Need to register to see lines) and and http://www.Bet365.com for everyone else..
Home Goals vs Away Goals: Home -1.5
With 6 games on the board, all the home teams except the Flames are the favourites. You’ve got heavy favourites in the Lightning, Bruins, Rangers and Stars.
-1.5 goals is a surprising spread for tonight. You’d really need a massive night of upsets – it’s not like we’re going to get a Flames-Oilers game every night.
Grand Salami: Over 33.5
You can bet the Grand Salami at http://www.5Dimes.eu(Need to register to see lines) for 2.00 odds.
To me – there are a lot of games tonight with the potential of going over. Lightning vs Senators is priced at Over 6 for example. Jets and Stars have had high scoring games in their last two meet-ups. Sharks vs Flames good for a few goals.
I think there’s high potential for a freak game tonight with a lot of goals, and going to go with the Salami on this one.
