We went 2-0 last night, 15-3 in just the last couple of days. A nice run.
We had the Jets to win last night. While all of the stats suggested otherwise we both just had a feeling that the Jets would pull out the win and they did that – thrashing the Canucks 4-1.
We also had the Blackhawks/Oilers Over 5.5 goals and after a slow start it heated up in the 2nd period and continued, going 7 goals total.
The Capitals/Red Wings game went Under 5 as we had thought – but we just couldn’t pull the trigger on that one as a betting tip. Looking back I’m still glad we didn’t – the odds just weren’t as favourable as we would have liked, even though it won.
So the NHL announced that the all star game will be 3 vs 3 and a division based format. AWESOME! Props to the NHL for this. This is going to be so exciting and I’ve went from “Meh, all star weekend” to counting down the days until all star weekend!
It’s a busier night in hockey. Let’s get to the NHL Betting Tips for November 19th, 2015:
Bruins vs Wild Betting Tips:
The over/under line for this one is 5 and I like taking the over there.
The last 4 games for these teams have been 5 or more goals. Bruins defensively are not the team they once were and are leaking a lot of goals. Both teams coming off 7+ goal thrillers. This is one where I’d be extremely surprised if it doesn’t at least push.
Over 5 Goals.
Canadiens vs Coyotes Betting Tips:
The Habs are stumbling and bumbling at the moment but they’ve got the perfect chance to turn it around here with a solid win against the Coyotes. Both teams are rested. Coyotes have had no luck on their road trip so far with 5-2 losses in New York and Columbus. Coyotes are a team that have the potential to mix it up – and have beaten 3 Canadian teams in Toronto, Ottawa and Edmonton thus far.
We like Habs to do it in regulation though.
Value Bet: Colorado Avalanche vs Pittsburgh Penguins
As a reminder – when we post a tip headlined with “Value Bet”, we’re noting that while we expect to lose more than 50% of the time – we expect to win enough to make it a profitable bet in the long run.
An easy, easy value bet on the Colorado Avalanche here.
Pittsburgh on home ice doesn’t mean anything. at this point. Their record is not good there at all. Going to a shootout with the Habs, scraping wins over Buffalo and Minnesota, losing against the Blue Jackets and Dallas. They did get a fighting victory over Minnesota – and it’s highly likely that they will keep going with momentum on their side.
But the price on the Avs is too good to ignore. Especially considering their road trip so far. 3 out of 4 wins with victories over the Habs and Bruins. They lost to the Leafs but then according to my Toronto friends they are a super power.
Take Avalanche to win.
