A happy Thanksgiving to all our American friends. And if you’re an NFL fan it’s like Christmas came early with 3 games today. Always makes for a great day.
Only two games tonight in the NHL with the Bruins visiting Ottawa and the Habs looking to stop this amazing Hurricanes run. Despite that run the Hurricanes are heavy underdogs in this one.
Let’s analyze both games and see what we’ve got:
Hurricanes vs Canadiens Betting Tips:
Right off the bat that Hurricanes line looks tempting as all hell. At least 2.60 in most places and I see as high as 2.71. However if we look at the stats overall this season the Canadiens are the better team. We all know Price is elite and the Habs looked solid against the Senators. The top Habs line is playing well and might be up for stopping Ward & co.
This is a very tough one and usually we can’t pass up the value on the Hurricanes. Honestly it’s most likely the +EV play here and if you bet it and lose you shouldn’t feel bad. But we’re going to take Montreal to win in regulation. The Habs haven’t been playing bad hockey and have made a few mistakes. Overall we think they’re the better team and with the way the Canes are playing, will take this seriously. We also like their top line to be able to get by Ward. Can get for 1.86 odds at Bet365..
Bruins vs Senators:
No betting tip for this one due to too many questions. Chara is out and that will force the Bruins to change their usually sturdy defense around. However Pastrnak is gametime as is Ryan. If Bruins were a better price we’d take them but at 1.76 approx we’ll stay away. The 1st period system does like the Bruins to win the 1st period which is 2.70 odds.
