Well a much better night with the betting tips last night. We ended the night going 3-0 for a total of 6.11 odds.

First off we had had the LA Kings to beat the Minnesota Wild and they did winning 2-1. This was yet another example of just how good Jonathan Quick is. He made 40 saves on 41 shots against the Wild in this one after making 43 saves the night before in the Kings 1-0 win over the Blues.

Next we had the underdog Flames to win against the Jets. After being down 1-0 after the first period, the Flames came back to score 4 unanswered goals including 3 in the 2nd period to win 4-1.

Our final win of the night came when we bet that the Anaheim Ducks would score first against the Vancouver Canucks which they did at 1:37 of the first period in their 3-0 win. Ducks goalie Frederik Andersen recorded his first career shutout with the win which was the Ducks 5th straight.

Tonight we only have 1 game taking place. It’s the Tampa Bay Lightning vs the Edmonton Oilers. With only the one game on we will only be doing two tips but we will offer advice on some other betting options as well

Lightning vs Oilers Betting Tips

In the standings, on paper and on the ice this looks like a huge mismatch.

On one side we have the Lightning who are 3-1-1 and look great. On the other we have the Oilers who are still looking for the first win of the season.

Stamkos is on fire right now. He has 5 goals in 5 games.

What else is there to say about this game? It is what it is.

Lightning Win In Regulation for 1.83 odds. Since we are betting a Regulation Win we might as well bet the money line as well for 1.56.

Lightning To Score First for 1.65 odds. Not great odds but this is a mismatch.

Place both of these bets at Sports Interaction (Exclusive: $20 Free Bet for Canadians) or for Americans try out Bovada and everyone else Bet365.com.

Those are the tips but if you are looking for more here’s my take on a couple others that I personally will be betting.

Over 5.5 Both teams have the talent to score and Stamkos is in beast mode right now so I would look for this game to go over 5.5 for 1.77 odds

Lightning -1.5. Again this looks like it could be a blowout for the Lightning. And for some strong odds of 2.55, this is worth the risk.

With only one game it could be a good night to head to FanDuel and load up on Lightning players. Click on the ad below to head there

Good Luck and go Lightning!!

    Gotta disagree with you guys on this one. This looks like a good spot for the Oilers to get their first win of the season with Tampa having to travel cross-coast and having played in Van City Saturday. This Western swing is always tough for teams from the East. Edmonton showed a bit of life vs Vancouver and proved they can play some form of defense. At 2.4 odds I think the price is right in Oil City.

      Even gonna throw a half unit on Edm -1.5 at astronomical 4.46 odds. Might even do the degenrate thing and parlay that with the Steelers -3 tonight haha.
