Our hot run ended last night as we went 1-2.

We took the Blue Jackets for the win hoping they’d be up for the game in a big way. Unfortunately they were not and moved to 0-7. They actually didn’t play too bad in the first couple of periods either. But that 3rd period was absolutely brutal for them and to not score on any of those power plays? Yeah they deserve to be 0-7.

We lost on the Stars vs Flyers over. Niemi was the star of the game with an excellent performance which stopped the Flyers – and the Stars had some solid penalty kill action.

Our win was the Washington Capitals over the Calgary Flames. Going into that 0-2 man was the 1st period nerve wracking. Thankfully the Capitals flexed their muscles and got the big 6-2 win.

It was a great night of hockey action. The Penguins still struggle needing overtime and a PPG to beat the Panthers. The Habs continue on their run as 82-0 seems more and more possible by the day. And the Coyotes are back to being the Coyotes again.

4 games tonight.

Hurricanes vs Avalanche Betting Tips:

They played twice last season. Avs won 4-3 and Hurricanes won 3-2.

Neither team has been steady and both have looked very sloppy – so we’re going to bank on that continuing and take Over 5.5 goals. Colorado managed to protect a lead against the Ducks – but this season I’m pretty sure me and Scott could play the Ducks 2 vs 5 and shut them out.

Colorado defense at home so far has been shocking, and both teams are conceding over 3 goals per game. Even better is Varlamov is in the net for the Avs apparently and he’s got a 5.06 GAA. Sure he’s got something to prove etc – but from what we’ve seen so far this season the only thing he is proviing is that Berra should be in net.

Oilers vs Red Wings Betting Tips:

If you’ve been following us for awhile you know we like to back momentum. Over the years we’ve found momentum is a big factor in hockey. When you’re looking at teams with momentum it’s hard not to look at the Edmonton Oilers, who are on a 2 game win streak. And now they’re at home.

It almost breaks my heart that I have to take the Detroit Red Wings to win.

You have to go back to 2012 to find the last time the Edmonton Oilers beat the Red Wings. Major props to the Oilers for getting a couple of wins on the board and with a lot of friends in Edmonton I’m cheering them on strong. On top of that you have Detroit on a 2 game losing streak – after starting the season off so well.

But I believe the Red Wings are a great match for the Oilers, and we’re getting an excellent price of 1.90 at http://www.5Dimes.eu for Americans(Need to register to see lines) and and http://www.Bet365.com for everyone else..

NHL Player Prop:

Just a reminder that we’re doing player props mainly because we’ve been requested to do this, after Sports Interaction (Canada), Bovada (USA) and for everyone else 888 Sports added so many player props. We’re still doing a lot of math and work to make sure we deliver +EV player props – so for now take them as just for fun.

Tonight we’re on Gabriel Landeskog to score at a whopping 4.10 odds. He’s had a bad run of 0 points against Kings and the Ducks. However he’s produced at home this season with 4 goals in 3 games and with us liking a lot of goals we gotta take it.

Bet that at Sports Interaction (Canada), Bovada (USA) and for everyone else 888 Sports.

    Surprise surprise…Richards was fired and Tortorella was hired. Could re-energize the team or cost them some more games adjusting to a new coach. Either way, they’ve got a 4 game road trip including games with the Wild and the Caps. Poor Calgary…hope they climb out of their ‘funk’ but could be hard with a 4 game road trip including a b&b with the Rangers and Islanders.

    I’m a great believer in momentum too but my hunch is the Oilers might sneak one by Detroit. Good luck tonight!

      A very interesting one. I like it because the dude had a rough time of it in Vancouver. I think that was a really hard spot to be in and any coach would struggle. 4 game road trip is nice as no pressure, time to work out the kinks etc.

      Flames are already looking for that desperation trade etc. It’s a young team who exceeded all expectations last season. Hopefully they can figure things out and take it slow – but we all know people react a lot quicker 🙂

    Hi guys! Ok, my English is not 100% but most often I can figure out what your bet is meant to be. But Red Wings vs Oilers? To me it looks like you recommend a bet on both teams 🙂

    • BetNHL.ca

      Sorry if it wasn’t clear – Red Wings to win is the bet.
