No tips yesterday. It was a day with quite a few upsets such as the Red Wings beating the Canes, and the Knights destroying the Flames. Also the Leafs only conceded 3.

We’re just two weeks away now from the end of the regular season and I can’t wait. I really don’t expect many tips at all from us until the playoffs begin. It’s amazing looking at betting reaction threads right now and seeing people losing their minds over the “Canes costing them a 6 game parlay” or even just the Canes costing them a big bet. I can’t imagine betting a parlay at this point of the season unless I hated money.

Most teams just don’t seem to have the drive. On the bright side, with less analysis being required it’s allowed me to get up to date on all the Ontario igaming stuff.

You won’t see much difference from your end. If you’re in Ontario you’ll only see regulated sportsbooks from here on out. The only addition is in the best odds, along with listing Canada, USA and Everywhere Else, we’ll also list Ontario.

Two games tonight.

Canadiens vs Islanders

Islanders were my team to back but I’m a tad concerned with their last few results. Even a win over the Hurricanes doesn’t mean much at this stage.

The odds on them aren’t too bad. I’m seeing about 1.70 for incl OT/SO.

Don’t hate a speculative bet on them on a regulation win here. Simply because the Habs are terrible, they’re good at beating up the terrible teams, and they do seem to be playing with a fair bit of pride.

Their road record isn’t great but if I were betting this one, I’d gamble on them taking it in reg.

Panthers vs Jets

Panthers are still going strong. Just two in regulation losses since March began, and that was to the Knights and The Leafs.

They look to keep the winning run going against a Jets team who can be quite randomly tricky at times.

You would have to bet -1.5 to have any value and against the Jets – man I wouldn’t even bet incl OT/SO.

These two had a tight one back in January where the Panthers won.

I do think that Florida get the W here. They have the winning streak going so that gives them something to play for.

Jets have Wheeler back tonight and the mood in their camp seems to be pretty good so I’d be cautious about this one.

Tonight’s games are a writeoff.
I don’t follow Ontario’s gaming situation closely, but I noticed recently that Canada’s Sports Select (which is so offensive it shouldn’t be legal) is making their system even more repulsive to betters. Will they soon go out of business? I hope so. For years they offered very limited and unfair ways to bet, about 1/30th the number of ways the online bookies allow. Plus, they have two things which just abuse betters to the extreme:
1) Sports Select doesn’t offer any “moneyline” bets, it installs an automatic “tie rule” and games ending within a certain RANGE of goals or points, qualify as a “tie”. Sports Select has just announced they have installed the “tie rule” for all baseball; games ending within a one-run range automatically qualify as a “TIE” result. The tie rule was already used by Sports Select for hockey, basketball (5 points) and football (3 points). How full of #### can you get!
2) The “POINT SPREAD” option for hockey involves REGULATION TIME only, it doesn’t refer to the end of the game. Their online statements of rules don’t reveal this (should be illegal to do that!!!), but if the game goes to overtime, and you bet on the eventual winner to win “-0.5” in the Point Spread type of bet, you lose the bet, because it didn’t happen in regulation. I wonder how many millions of betters bet Point Spread, thinking it’s including all overtime and shootout results, since Sports Select is behaving like a criminal outfit.
