A nice winning night last night. We went 2-1 with the regular picks and if you took the entertainment bet it would’ve been a 3-1 night, with an easy 3-1 victory for Buffalo.
Penguins had an early scare before firing in the goals and covering the handicap and the Sharks walked all over Edmonton in our other wins for the night. The only loss was Devils losing to Kings, as the LA for the second night in a row screwed us with a late goal, and the Devils couldn’t convert a 6 on 4.
For Saturday, November 16th we have 9 NHL Games on the board. Buffalo and Toronto meet in Toronto, and there’s a lot of interesting games like the Lightning vs Coyotes, and of course the Oilers vs Flames.
Sportsbook Free Bet Note: Occassionally we will mention to “bet with the sportsbooks money” or similar. Basically most online sportsbooks offer a free bonus for all new depositors – which you’d be silly not to take advantage of. Take Bovada(USA) or Bodog(Canada) or http://www.SportsInteraction.com for everyone else for example.
They offer a 100% Free Bet. It’s pretty simple – on your first deposit, they will give you a matching bet on the amount up to $100. So say you deposit $50 at Bovada(USA) or Bodog(Canada) or http://www.SportsInteraction.com for everyone else. You will be given a $50 free bet. Even if you only bet $5 per game – you still have that whole $50 free bet to use. So when you are betting, you are betting with the sportsbooks money.
On with the tips for November 16th, 2013:
Sabres vs Leafs: Leafs -1.5
The Sabres had the massive win last night over the Leafs. It was a close game but Buffalo managed to get by and it was a great win for Ted Nolan.
Time for that to turn around tonight.
Tonight they’re in Toronto, and the Leafs will be hurting after last night. It was just a bad day at the office for Toronto, who have a strong 6-2-0 home record. Reimer is in and I can see that giving the Leafs a lift. The Leafs offense has been woeful over the last 5 games, but with the home crowd behind them in a big game like this, we’re really liking the Leafs to do the business here.
Blackhawks vs Predators: Blackhawks To Win
Hawks and Predators played 5 games last season, and this is the first of 5 tonight. Hawks took all 5 last season, and we like them to start off the 5 game series strong with a win.
The Blackhawks offense is really clicking at the moment, and now Versteeg is back and in the 3rd line? Awesome. Some great depth and you know he will just be pumped to play.
Predators have just ended a half month road trip, and while they’ll be happy to be home we just think the Blackhawks are too strong. Khabibulin is apparently in net which makes it all the better.
We are going to go with the Blackhawks to win at 1.54 odds as our official tip, however personally we’re going to bet to cover the spread. Chicago have been insane on the road this season. Their recent results are 5-2 over Dallas, 5-1 over Winnipeg and 5-1 over Minnesota. The Blackhawks are coming to town, and we’re hoping for a big win for them.
