We went 2-1 with our consensus picks yesterday, and our lone WHL Betting Tip also won for a good night.
It was a crazy night of hockey with a lot of insane high scoring games. One of our consensus picks was the Tampa Bay Lightning and much like against the Red Wings – they went down early only to come back and get the win.
We also had the Sharks to beat the Blue Jackets and they looked extremely solid in doing so.
We had the Jets to defeat the Wild and Winnipeg were up 2-0 at the end of the 1st. Unfortunately they took their foot off the gas at that point and couldn’t really get going again. Considering that was a big underdog pick however we can’t be too upset.
Some amazing hockey overall lsat night. Flames lost yet again while the Avalanche had a thrilling game against the Stars. The Blackhawks secured their first win of the season and the Coyotes got a nice W in OT against the Flyers.
We’ve got a more relaxed schedule today. Let’s get to it – only one consensus pick which we’ll start with.
Oilers vs Sabres Betting Tips:
Graeme: I’m not fully buying into the Oilers yet. There’s the usual hype after just 2 games but you have to remember it’s the Edmonton Oilers. The Calgary Flames offense didn’t look too hot against the Canucks yet they have put 7 goals past the Oilers in just 2 games. That’s a big red flag. Despite all that, the Oilers offense, particularly McDavid, are firing on all cylinders at the moment and the Buffalo offense looked flat against the Habs. I’m taking Oilers in regulation at 2.02 odds which feels like a nice price.
Scott: The Sabres are going to have some problems scoring with all of their injuries. Eichel, Okposo and Kane are all out so that’s 3 of their top 6 forwards. Okposo may be ready to go for this one but that’s still up in the air.
The Oilers are rolling right now. They’re 2-0 and have been scoring with ease hitting 7 goals in game 1 and 5 in game 2. McDavid is living up to the hype as he has 6 points through those 2 games.
I like the Oilers chances in this one but the question is by how many goals will they win?

Ducks vs Islanders Betting Tips:
Graeme: The Ducks have had two tough games to begin the season and are now 0-2. The Islanders can relate with losses against the Capitals and Rangers. I’ve absolutely no idea who will win this one. It’s tough because there are solid goalis in this one but with both teams being desperate, I think Over 5 is my play here.
Scott: Both teams are still looking for their first win of the season. The Ducks lost to the Stars and the Penguins, the Isles lost to the the Rangers and the Capitals. So all of the losses so far for these 2 teams have come against some solid competition. One team will get their first victory of the year but it’s tough to call which one. No Bet
Hurricanes vs Canucks Betting Tips:
Graeme: Early in the season is still tough to really guage the strength of a team, especially two teams that have played just 1 game. I did like the battling performance of the Hurricanes against the Jets – but they’re favoured at 1.80 or above and I can’t tip them. No Bet.
Scott: The Hurricanes blew a 4-1 lead to the Jets who came back and won 5-4 in OT. The Canucks played last night against the Flames and won 2-1 in a shootout. The goal the Flames had wasn’t so much a goal as it was a blunder by the Canucks. With the goalie pulled for an extra attacker before a penalty Eriksson misplayed the puck which then rolled into their own empty net.
I can’t predict this game so I’m staying away from it
