It was a 2-1 night last night with the NHL Tips.

Due to the Bruins goaltender situation we took the Wild. It was a bit of a nervy first period but after that things settled down and the Wild steamrolled over them for our first win of the night.

It was the complete opposite of a nervy first period in the Lightning/Leafs game. We had Over 5.5 goals in that one and Tampa were up 3-0 by the end of the first. That one ended up going over easily.

Our loss was the underdog play of the Blue Jackets. That was a good pick that unfortunately just didn’t work out. Blue Jackets let the Kings get too much of the puck in the third, and Bobrovksy was unlucky to not stop that Doughty shot.

It was an interesting night in the NHL. The Calgary Flames got a massive win over the St. Louis Blues. We expect a lot of people lost money there – Blues looked a cert for the win and were in my early leans, but Scott opposed that one and we didn’t go with it. Glad we stayed away.

Tonight is a much quieter night in the NHL with just four games. It all starts with the Habs visiting New York to take on the Islanders. The Rangers then host the Bruins, and the later games feature the Capitals vs Oilers and Predators vs Ducks.

Bruins vs Rangers Betting Tips:

There are no easy bets in hockey. Hockey is one of the most volatile sports in terms of results that there is. Sometimes the “obvious” ones – such as the Blues last night – are the ones we’ll argue about the most. Trying to argue off the “easy” bet etc.

We can’t do that tonight with the New York Rangers.

The Bruins could win this game. They’ve shown a strict defense in a couple of the games this season. Their offense hasn’t been too shabby and maybe they’ll go for broke tonight. if McIntyre starts maybe he’ll have the game of his life. If Subban starts maybe he’ll come out all pumped up after not even being able to finish last night. the fact is that these guys are in the NHL for a reason and they could quite easily record a shutout.

However we’ve got to take the Rangers tonight. For the most part their offense is clicking, Girardi is back for their defense and they should be able to take care of the Bruins here. At the odds especially it’d be a mistake not to take NYR tonight.

Rangers in Regulation.

Canada: 1.86 Odds at Bet365.
USA: -111 Odds at 5Dimes.
Everyone Else: 1.86 Odds at Bet365.

Other Games Thoughts:

No other bets tonight however all three underdogs look good for a bet.

In Capitals vs Oilers – it’s just way too hard to call. There’s probably value on the Oilers at their price which we’re missing out on – but we’re not convinced by them yet. This is a big test for them and we’re going to hold off on betting it.

Montoya is in net for the Habs, and while he’s been damn solid we’re going to stay away. Islanders have a nice little run going. Greiss is in net so we’re leaning towards the Habs but we just can’t pull the trigger.

Finally the Predators struggle on the road. The Ducks haven’t been convincing this season but this is one we think they can win.

While we’re not officially tipping any of them – if you’re looking fo bets in those games, we think the Canadiens, Oilers and Ducks as underdogs represent some nice value.

    Hi everyone!
    Only 2 from 4 last night and 2 players to score and still see blue before my eyes.:))
    But this is some of the beauty of NHL.
    For tonight i like Habs, Caps, Rangers and Ducks.
    Plekanec, Nash, Backstrom and Kesler to score.

    • lion

      You are picking Ducks only because its your favourite team in Nhl. I advise you to stop doing that or specify that you are going with Ducks only because its your team โ˜บ

      • magus1349

        There’s no need to specify Ducks is my favourite team. Everybody could see this.:))
        When i don’t think Ducks win, i avoid them. We, in Romania, we have a word: “Brother is brother, but cheese cost money”.
        I think Ducks is eager to revenge last duel with Preds in play off, i think is better team and i think is in a better form.

        • SanDiegoBruins

          brother is brother, but cheese cost money. haha! brilliant

        • SanDiegoBruins

          Preds have to feel pretty confident after beating Penguins when they were half AHL and half sick team

          • magus1349

            Indeed. A little bit much confident.:)))
            Is just 0-6 in this moment.

  • Dybala21

    1/2 last night for a little profit.
    Tonight I take Rangers and Ducks.

  • BLS

    How the Bruins could beat the Rangers tonight ??

  • lion

    Tonight picks,

    Islanders win %100
    Bruins win %100

    Good luck!

    • SanDiegoBruins

      Bruins win 100%? I’m a Bruins fan and I think they are going to get smoked tonight in MSG

      • SanDiegoBruins

        Lion, you’re brilliant

        • DawsonArkiri

          Even with the Rangers down 2-0, I made a bet on the Ranger to win in reg because I knew they’d come back lol. Could not stand that lead

      • lion

        I like Bruins as well. They have golie issues. They will start to win easily whenever they fix that issue.

    • DawsonArkiri

      I respect your pick but I don’t think you made the right one tonight ๐Ÿ˜›

      • lion

        ๐Ÿ™‚ thanks mate

    • chris osborn

      0-2 . Lol

      • lion

        It may happen mate ๐Ÿ˜‰ its NHL

  • DawsonArkiri

    Habs win
    Rangers win
    Oilers win
    Preds win

    • DawsonArkiri

      Thanks for getting destroyed predators.
      Might probably never bet on this team again lol
      3/4 wins

  • BlueLineBets

    2 of 3 last night including a big payday on Ducks/Sharks OT. Tonight I’ve got the Rangers and the Habs.
    @BlueLineBets on Twitter

  • SanDiegoBruins

    Rangers -1.5 – Bs are a mess at the moment. They can’t score goals, their NHL goalies are both out and their AHL goalie isn’t ready for the show and they’re bringing in no names. Their defense is young and porous and Backes is out. Meanwhile the Rangers are clicking right now and have one of the top net minders in the league. Rangers ML has no value, but they can easily win by 2 or more tonight.

    Habs ML – great value with a team that is playing with a lot of confidence in front of a great second string goalie.

    Caps/Oilers – 1.5+ 1st per and o5.5 (str8 up bets, not parlay) Both teams have a lot of fire power and I see this game starting fast with goals scored in first period and then settling down to a slugfest.

    Preds/Ducks – 05 even though Getzlaf is out, both teams have the ability to easily score at least two goals. Gibson is good but not a shut down goalie and Rinne is probably still not 100% after food poisoning and traveling across country. team totals for this game are not on the board, but if there are decent odds for Preds 2.5+ I’m all over it.

    • chris osborn

      Preds 2.5+ what do you mean. You meant -1.5??

      • BetNHL.ca

        I believe he means Preds Over 2.5 goals as in the Preds will score at least 3.

      • chris osborn

        I need to get on some betting in Canada. We can’t bet on that in vegas. Just over or under and regulation ML . first period wagering also.

        • Stats Guru

          Those specialty odds are from online betting shops. Canada has the WORST Sports Lottery system on the planet.

      • Stats Guru

        Strongly suggest being careful if taking advice from SanDiegoBruins. He employs some flawed betting practices and his intel is not always the best. Not sure what “codes” he talks in when he posts his “picks” but his bottom line is not good.

  • Kimball Smith

    Canadians underdogs ? 4-2 Habitants Plecs gets first goal tonight

  • Alexandre Bnl

    Under 5 goals for islanders vs Habs

  • Arto Reinikainen

    Sup boys ๐Ÿ˜€

    Bruins
    Oilers
    Predators

    All in reg.

    Also went with double chance draw or Canadiens, but that game is already underway.

    GL !

    • lion

      nice to see you again mate!

    • SanDiegoBruins

      good to see you!

  • chris osborn

    Well thanks SanDiego bruins. I took the Rangers -1.5 made bit of money on that one. I was gonna take them regulation, but seeing as how bruins are your team and you seemed to have input on their situation, I went for the-1.5

    • lion

      SanDiego has good knowladge of NHL and I check his picks and comments even If I dont agree.
