A MASSIVE winning night in the NHL as we went 1-1 for 0.07 units profit! Hey – better than a losing night.

But it is yet another reminder why it’s nice to line shop. Our win was with the Capitals over the Lightning and we got it at 2.07 odds. However the majority of sportsbooks had it at 2.00 odds so by line shopping – it turns a break even night into a winning night.

Might be a good time to remind you guys of the online sportsbooks we currently recommend, bet at and provide the lines for. Take some time – especially if you’re off work for Christmas – to sign up at accounts for all of these.

Alright let’s get on with the NHL Betting Tips for December 19th, 2015:

Blackhawks vs Sabres Betting Tips:

Crawford is in net for the Chicago Blackhawks, and he’s picked up an impressive 3 shutouts in his last 4 games. However while he is running hot – all of that was at home. His recent record on the road hasn’t been so good – 4 in Ottawa, 2 in San Jose and 5 in Vancouver for example.

Buffalo are coming off a big 3-0 win at home and they’ve been tight the last few games. The combination of that and Crawford are probably why it’s set at 5 and not 5.5. But I like this game to go over with two offenses who can score.

Take Over 5 Goals.

Leafs vs Kings Betting Tips:

When Bernier is in net and the line for O/U goals is 5 – it’s really hard not to blindly take the over.

His last 5 games have him concede 3, 5, 4, 4 and 4 – and the 3 goals he conceded was in the Sharks game after Sparks had let in 2.

Saw a lot of talk lately from Phaneuf about how they’re going to get together and get the win for Bernier and turn it around for him and blah blah blah. Look if they do that then hey good for them. Starting feel bad for Bernier.

But until they prove they can do that – Over 5 goals.

Canada: 1.73 Odds at Pinnacle Sports.
USA: -135 Odds at 5Dimes.
Everyone Else: 1.73 Odds at Pinnacle Sports.

Devils vs Ducks Betting Tips:

Kinkaid is in net tonight for the Devils and we haven’t been impressed with him that much.

He’s going up against a complete definition of a flaccid offense in the Anaheim Ducks. And the Devils home results lately haven’t been too shabby at all.

But after two embarassing losses – we like the Ducks to bounce back tonight. Honestly I blame a lot of it on the schedule. 1 game in 9 days is just silly and watching their last two games I think they were rusty.

They’ve shaken that off and we like Ducks to win tonight.

Canada: 1.87 Odds at Sports Interaction.
USA: -118 Odds at 5Dimes.
Everyone Else: 1.86 Odds at Bet365.
