A 3-0 night last night which was nice, and a +0.75 unit profit in the 1st period system to put that back into the black.
We had the Islanders in regulation. Since the trade, our thoughts are basically “bet against the Jackets” when we first analyze them and that worked out well yesterday with the Islanders putting in a dominant performance.
We had the Blackhawks to beat the Predators and they went up 3-0. Nashville fought back but couldn’t tie it up thankfully.
We also took Over 4.5 goals in Devils/Blues. As Scott said yesterday – if there’s a line like that in the NHL you probably have to take it. It’s hard to think of a game where you wouldn’t take that.
Some other interesting games. A Domi hat trick won the game for the Coyotes as they hosted Edmonton. The Avs were completely dominated by the Lightning. Buffalo had a massive 1st period against the Wild and that was all she wrote for that game. And the Penguins are back to being mediocre. Good stuff.
Tonight there are only 4 games. Normally we’d go with the Leafs here blindly – but the odds are poor, and JVR being out is going to be very interesting. So we’ll skip that one and see how they play without him.
Bruins vs Flyers Betting Tips:
Gostisbehere is out for the Flyers still. This is a big game for both teams obviously and the Bruins are making some line changes as they try to get things going again after a poor few weeks.
Despite their poor form at the moment I’m going to take Bruins to win. They’ve been inconsistent and games between these two are always tight but I think the Bruins can get the win here. Their offense is usually very solid on the road.
Panthers vs Flames Betting Tips:
The big question is whether or not the Panthers can bounce back. We do like the Panthers to win but it can be hard to pick yourself up after a winning streak like that comes to an end.
It’s a big game that both teams will want to win. The Flames are solid at home when it comes to scoring but also leak goals like crazy. Panthers have a ridiculous record on the road of course with just 2.05 GAA but I’m just not convinced the Panthers can pick themselves up fully and want to wait and see.
Over 5 goals.
