Had two tips yesterday and went 1-1.

I had the Lightning vs Leafs game to go over 6 but the Lightning decided to take the night off. They had only 19 shots on goal and lost 4-1. They had only 8 shots over 2 periods so I knew this bet was in trouble.

I had the Flames to win in regulation against the Sharks and they did 7-3. Kadri and Toffoli both scored twice in the win.

The Canes beat the Devils 4-1 and moved into 1st in the Metro. This was the Devils 6th straight loss and after the season they have had so far it’s surprising. They have only a 2 point lead over the Pens and 3 points ahead of the Rangers in the Metro.

Kyle Connor had 3 points and the Jets beat the Sens 5-1, the Flyers handed the Jackets the 5th straight loss when they won 5-3, and the Pens beat the Rangers 3-2 in a big game in the standings.

A slightly slower night tonight with only 7 games. And most of the games have odds that make them unplayable.

Devils vs Panthers

So the Devils continue to struggle. They were once one of the best team in the league but no find themselves in 2nd in the Metro.

The Panthers are 5-5 over their last 10 and are on 5th in the Atlantic.

The played a few nights ago and the Panthers won 4-2 in New Jersey.

With the Panthers at home and the Devils expected to start Blackwood this should go the Panthers way. But the Devils are a strong road team going 11-2-1. After this game they play the Bruins twice and the Penguins once to end the month.

I have to skip this as the Devils are struggling and the Panthers are 5-5 over last 10.

Lightning vs Wings

The Lightning lost last night and they didn’t look very good. The were outshot 40-19 and their 5 game win steak was snapped.

The Wings have dropped their last 6 and the last win they had was a 4-2 win against the Lightning.

After the way they played last night and having lost to the Wings recently do the Lightning bounce back and pick up the win?

Too many questions for me so I’m skipping.

Canadiens vs Avalanche

The Canadiens are 15-15-2 and the Avalanche are 17-11-2.

At home the Avs are 8-5-2, on the road the Habs are 8-6-2.

The Habs won their last game 3-2 in OT to Coyotes but had dropped three straight before that including a 5-2 loss to the Ducks. The Avalanche have won their last 2 and gone 5-4-1 in last 10.

I would have to take the Avs -1.5 here to get any value so I have to skip.

Predators vs Blackhawks

The Hawks have lost 7 straight and have gone 1-9 over last 10. The Preds won their last game and have gone 4-4-2.

At home the usually strong Hawks have been bad going 4-11-2. They are in dead last in the league.

The Hawks have gone 0-7-1 against teams from the Central. Mrazek is starting for Chicago and his numbers are rough. He’s 2-7-1 with a 4.24 GAA and a .872 save percentage.

Preds in regulation

Ontario: 1.95 Odds at Bet365 (Americans: We recommend http://www.bovada.lv
Rest of Canada: 1.95 Odds at Bet365 (Americans: We recommend http://www.bovada.lv
USA: -125 Odds at BetOnline.
Everyone Else: 1.95 Odds at Bet365 (Americans: We recommend http://www.bovada.lv

(Odds correct as of 2022/12/21 9:21:01 AM EST but are subject to change.)

Oilers vs Stars

The Oilers need to snap this losing skid they are on and fast. They have lost 3 on a row and are in 4th in the Pacific. They are now 3 back of the 2nd place Kings and only

The Stars have gone 6-2-2 over last 10 and are in 1st in the Central.

These teams are tied for 4th place in GPG with 3.58 and the Oilers are 13th and the Stars 14th in shots on goal.

The Stars at home have gone 9-3-3 so I would give them the edge. But it would have to be in regulation and it’s the Oilers so we never know which version of them is going to show up. Should be a good game but no tips for it.

Coyotes vs Knights

Both have lost the last 2 games.

The Coyotes are the road team and have gone 6-12-3 away from home, the Knights have gone 8-9 in Vegas.

The Knights have a much better road record than they do a home one and they need to fix their home play. If not for their road record, 14-2-1, they would not be in 1st in the Pacific.

A Knights -1.5 play is only worth 1.86 so not much value there.

Wild vs Ducks

The Wild have won their last 5 games and are 8-2 over last 10.

The Ducks are 3-6-1 over last 10 and are at home where they have gone 5-7.

They played earlier this month and it was the Wild winning 5-4 in a shootout.

The Wild -1.5 is 1.86 and after that last meeting I can’t go with that so I have to skip.
