The rain held off and the weather was great here yesterday.   Spent the day hanging out with my family and it was awesome.  Was even better that some YouTuber didn’t make a mockery of boxing again. I mean if people are willing to pay to watch him, and many did, then good for him.  Just seems so fake and its more WWE than boxing.

No tips yesterday. 

The Bruins beat the Caps 6-3 for their 4th straight win.  Bergeron, Marchand and Krejci all scored 2 goals each. 

The Rangers beat the Devils 5-2 to sweep the 4 game series.  The Sabres beat the Penguins 4-2 a day after becoming the first team eliminated from the playoffs.

The Knights beat the Ducks 5-2. With the win the Knights are now tied for the West Divison and league lead with the Avalanche. They are tied with the Avs at 64 points but have played one more game.

The Isles beat the Flyers 1-0 in overtime and the Canucks beat the Leafs 3-2 in overtime and this was a huge win for the Canucks who hadn’t played in almost a month after having an Covid-19 outbreak.  Edler was ejected from the game after a knee on knee hit on Hyman.

8 games for us today.

April 19th, 2021 NHL Betting Tips

Jackets vs Panthers

I like the Panthers to win this game.  To get any value we would need to take Panthers -1.5 but there has been 3 games between them this season that needed extra time.

The Panthers last 10 wins in regulation they have covered the spread each time.  So if the Panthers are to win in regulation then we might as well go with the spread.

Corsi and Fenwick are actually very close.  HDCF close most games.  xGF Panthers are better in almost every game although some are close.  But a lot of those were back when Jackets weren’t performing as badly.  Now with players injured and or traded they don’t look like the same team.

Panthers -1.5

Canada: 2.05 Odds at Sports Interaction
USA: +100 Odds at BetOnline.
Everyone Else: 2.05 Odds at Bet365 (Americans: We recommend http://www.bovada.lv

(Odds correct as of 2021/04/19 9:31:04 AM EST but are subject to change.)

Hurricanes vs Lightning

Should be a great game between these two.  Canes are leading the Central Divison and the Lightning are in 3rd but only 2 points behind them.  The Canes perform better than the Lightning but the Lightning seem to get the win.  Nothing for this game.

Wings vs Stars

The Wings have won their last 3 road games.  The Stars need to win a lot to gain ground and a spot in the playoffs.

Blackhawks vs Predators

Huge game here.  The Preds are in the 4th and final playoff spot in the Central Divison and the Hawks are in 5th only 2 points behind the Preds.  The Hawks always seem to find a way to stay in games and hover around a playoff spot.

Wild vs Coyotes

Should be a close game.  The Wild seem to win against the Coyotes a majority of the time.  But with them side by side in the West standings it could go either way.  Leaning towards Wild here.

Canadiens vs Oilers

Oilers should win this game but the Habs are chasing them in the North Divison.  No bet but leaning towards Oilers.

Senators vs Flames

Flames should win this game but the Sens like to play spoiler.  I think Flames win but needs to be -1.5 to get any value and not fully confident they can cover that.

Sharks vs Knights

The Knights should destroy them here.  But Patrick Marleau will become the all-time games played leader in this game.  With such a massive accomplishment you have to wonder if the Sharks rally behind that and make a game of this. I doubt it but anything can happen and this year has proved that.

I agree with Panthers -1.5
Adding Wild ML

Western Rattlers

To WIN: Florida and Vegas
Lean: Edmonton to win

I think Montreal’s bloom continues to fade here, as the playoff race arrives in earnest and other teams put the maximum effort out, and are tuned up. The Habs good record of wins against Edmonton earlier in the season doesn’t represent the situation with Edmonton now. Congrats to Marleau tonight, but according to the rules, you can skate in an NHL game and be on the losing team and it still counts as “played”, so goodbye Gordie Howe.


Thanks for the good analysis Scott, grateful that all matches are included (although some more briefly 🙂
