Hey guys,

Scott’s going to be taking a few days off from writing tips to recover from the slump he was on.

Losses happen in betting and it sucks. When you’re on a bad run, the best thing is to usually always take some time off. It allows you to re-evaluate and return fresh.

I’ve been betting sports for years and I’ve both experienced it and seen it. When you’re on a losing streak, it becomes personal. You’re determined to get back on a winning run but you’re not seeing things clearly. It was something I learned early on in sports betting.

Hell – a couple of years ago I did WNBA Tips and sold them. Halfway through the season I started slumping and I realized I wasn’t confident going into games anymore. I ultimately stopped tips for the ENTIRE season and refunded everyone their money.

If you’re ever on a bad run always take a break. Sports betting will still be there when you come back!

Today is a quiet night in hockey with just 5 games. I prefer that to be honest – allows me to analyze the games more thoroughly. 5-6 games is the sweet spot. I find with 4 games or less it’s easy to over analyze.

Grand Salami: Under 26.5

For those unaware – the Grand Salami is a bet that can be made where you bet on the total goals in that day. I am taking Under 26.5 goals. This means after you add up all the goals today once the final game is done – if it is 26 or less, winner winner chicken dinner.

One thing that stands out to me a lot today is just how easily a lot of these games could go under. Nothing convincing enough to have me tip it individually though.

You can bet the Grand Salami at http://www.5Dimes.eu for Americans(Need to register to see lines) and and http://www.Bet365.com for everyone else..

Ducks vs Predators Betting Tips:

Always wary betting against the Ducks because well – it’s the Ducks. No matter how bad they have been playing – it’s the Ducks!

But I mean COME ON. The Ducks are the favourites here. What? Predators already destroyed them this season and the Ducks are playing absolutely horrific.

I don’t care if the Ducks end up winning 16-0 scoring on every shot. The right play here is to take the Predators. And I’m aware that Rinne probably isn’t starting.

I’ve looked at this one from 10 different angles, and other than “Ducks being back at home” there’s just no other reason to not bet the Nashville Predators here.

You can get them for 2.10 odds at Bovada for Americans and http://www.Bet365.com for everyone else..

    Hey guys having a hard time finding the grand salami line on bovada. Is it is still available? Thanks again and keep up the great work!

    • BetNHL.ca

      No sorry. Once the first games start it’s taken off. Our mailing list server was messed up due to the time change in North America today and missed the schedule to go out twice 🙁 Sorry about that.

      • Bryan Springhetti

        No problem! I checked before any of the games started and it still wasn’t offered on bovada. I called and thy said it was only offered at the discretion of the betting manager so I guess it was a no go today. If they had it bogdog in Canada well best of luck and keep up the great work!

  • Eric

    i agree on this one, Nash all the way 🙂

  • Kimball Smith

    How do make salami bet in bodog – I don’t see it ?

  • ET

    Great insight into the world of hockey betting G. We’ve all been there and I’ve learned that patience really helps. If you wait for that almost ‘sure bet’ you’ll be rewarded. Case in point. Does anyone really think the Leafs are going to beat Dallas tomorrow?
    Tell Scott he can start a new winning streak with that game. 🙂
    Good luck tonight!

      Thanks – yeah I like to use opportunities like this to try to educate. Like if we have a losing night we’ll usually get hate mail(rarely get mail on winning nights of course!) and I like to take that time to remind the people that they should be using us for insight, but they should be using various other resources as well and coming to their own decision.

      I mean we do that too. We come up with our picks but before posting we have each other try to poke holes in them, then we look at other sites and other peoples thoughts to see if we’re missed something. Ideally we’ll find someone tipping the exact opposite of us and then see if there is anything we are missing.
