The Blue Jackets did the business last night as we hoped.

A large part of that pick was Torts reading them the riot act. You see a lot of teams respond well when that happens. It’s not like it’s an instant formula for winning or anything, but we saw the drive out of the Jackets in that game.

They went down 2-0 in the 1st and the last thing they wanted was another tongue lashing. They were motivated and they kept fighting hard and they beat a damn solid Devils team for the W.

Speaking of fighting hard, the Vegas Knights managed to get a huge 4-3 victory over the Predators. The other day I said I thought the Preds would take that one so hopefully you did the right thing and bet on the Knights. I think any time I have a strong feeling about the Preds, even though I won’t tip them in any games probably for the rest of the season, I’ll mention it so you can bet the opposite.

A couple of hours after sending out the tips, Crawford was announced as in net for the Blackhawks. I posted in the comments and edited in the post that I’d advise taking them based on that. Although the Blackhawks didn’t win in regulation and had to fight from behind twice, they still threw in a damn good performance against the Sabres. Really they should have been up about 3-0 in the 1st not down 1-0. And I can’t believe Sharp didn’t wrap that one up right at the death.

It’s Saturday, December 9th and quite a few good games tonight. Canadiens look to turn their woes around as the Oilers visit. Jets take on the Lightning in the game of the night and the Knights visit Dallas looking for revenge and a 4th win in a row.

There’s really not much we like tonight to be honest. We’re flirting with unit betting for the tips and while we’re not ready to roll with it yet, I’m thinking that 0.5 unit, 1 unit and 2 unit bets are the way to go. Tonights would fall under the 0.5-1 unit range.

No tips for the early game although Wings seem to be a decent team momentum wise – they win a game in regulation they usually win the next one too. Wouldn’t hang my hat on it though.

If you’re a fan of historical data, Sens/Sharks the last 7 have went over 5.5. One of those that based on current form I wouldn’t advise but I’ll be chucking a small bet on it.

Canucks probably worth a small bet at that price and with their road form.

Quick write-ups today as I want to get these out before the early game so people can chat about it:

Coyotes vs Jackets Betting Tips:

We like the Jackets to remain focused after last nights game and come out on this one with the win. Their back to back stats are fairly underwhelming this season – most of them on the 2nd leg seem to go to OT. But mentality wise the way last nights game went, we like the Blue Jackets to log a convincing win here.

Jackets in Regulation

Panthers vs Avs Betting Tips:

Reimer in net for the Panthers again. I think we’ll see a similar performance from them as we did the Jets game while the Avs despite the losing run have generally fought hard. Reimer isn’t that hard to beat.

Avs offense has been good for a few goals lately and we’re going to back Over 6 Goals incl OT/SO in this one.

Lightning vs Jets Betting Tips:

The Jets bounce back streak came to an end but that was due to their goalie situation. Going to be interesting to see how things go here.

I believe Hellebuyck is in net but not many people can stop either of these offenses when they’re clicking.

Regardless of who is in net, we’re taking Over 6 Goals incl OT/SO.

Red Wings, Oilers and Leafs with one;
Red Wings with 4;
Mantha, Scheifele and Stone with half unit.

Oliver Trigg

Your luck turned around after Red Wings at least!

Iceman

Don’t really think Detroit have what it takes to get a win today

Blues ML

Raphael gagne

Same thought

Shawn

With you on that one

SanDiegoBruins

Red Wings are all over the Blues but St Louis strikes first

magus1349

This is hockey.

Oliver Trigg

Like Hawks v Sabres yesterday, not about quantity its about quality. Buffalo were outshot something like 40 -15 and were up 2-1 with 5mins left in the third.

DJ S.Cream

I’ve gone Blues ML under 5.5 pray for me lol

slyNHL

Whats about Stars tonight? Can they bounce back to b2b Knights? Due to Knights lost so much energy yesterday

Geir Aage R Jensen

Geir project 1/8

Oliver Trigg

soothsayer

Tonight’s picks:

Red Wings – Blues under 5,5 goals
Lightning ML
Leafs ML
Penguins – Leafs over 5,5 goals

Shawn

Parlays:
Columbus ML, St. Louis ML

Columbus ML, Florida/Colorado Over, Tampa/Winnipeg Over

(Thought I’d take a chance) Vegas ML, Vancouver ML

Bluejackets ML, Blues ML, Sharks ML, Kings ML, and Lightning ML

Best of luck everyone!

Oliver Trigg

I am usually all over Vanc on the road, but with Horvat out I think their chemistry is a little upset. I actually changed my pick a few days ago from nucks to the flyers on that fact, and boy was I right. Nucks really struggled without him.

Shawn

Yea I cancelled the VGS and VAN parlay. Instead I decided to take a long shot with this: Bluejackets ML, Canadians ML, Avs/Panthers Over 5.5, Jets/Lightning Over 5.5, and LA -1.5

I use bet365, so I’ve got no idea what unit betting is…

Oliver Trigg

Unit betting is a means of money management in betting. You assign a certain portion of your bank roll as a unit i.e. if you are willing to bet £100 and want to make 100 bets you would assign £1 as one unit. You plan to bet confident picks as 5 units – representing your max stake etc. makes you control your money better.

Shawn

2/4 parlays so far, hopefully Sharks and LA pull it off as well! Thinking of playing a seperate play on LA. (Still think VAN ML will pull through, got that gut feeling, but that might be because I’m from Vancouver lol)

Oliver Trigg

Go for it on a small play then man. I can’t play flames- the odds are too bad. I really hope Sharks and LA come through too- got a parlay on it too

Shawn

Placed a good amount on LA ML and a small one on LA -1.5. I’m praying for us! As long as LA and Sharks win I’m happy!

Shawn

Canes all over LA. Sharks looking good though.

Oliver Trigg

Including my leans yesterday I went 4-1. I tipped Chicago to win in reg and ML but suggested staying away from reg- that choice turned out to be vindicated. Hitting it pretty well with my leans lately going 6-1 on my lean choices in the last 2 days. Need to be short today, as I need to get work done- I’ll add to my reasons as the day goes on. Sorry but fairly pressured for time today.

(85%) Blues ML- Blues have recovered from their little speed bump, and they’re a more consistent team than the Wings. Won 5 of last 6 meetings in Detroit, whilst the Wings only have 5 wins at home all season.

(90%/ 80%) Jackets ML/ Reg- Jackets need to keep winning to keep up with the Caps and Devils. Better team on paper and won 4 of the last 5 home meetings. Coyotes still only have 4 wins on the road, and their defence was sloppy against the Bruins.

Kings ML/Reg

Sharks ML

Panthers ML

Canadeins ML/Reg

Rangers ML/ Reg

Penguins ML

Dallas ML

Tampa ML/Reg

Triple3Kill

What 2 picks would u suggest?

Oliver Trigg

I have just updated my post- have a look. 2 solid picks are probably the Kings ML, Jackets ML or Canadeins ML ( I couldn’t decide between the two).

Shawn

Leafs and Penguins was a very hard pick, was leaning towards the Pens but kind of glad I didn’t pull through with it

Oliver Trigg

I knew it was a trap pick. Just felt fishy. Tbh Pens was more a lean than a pick. Kings ML I really think is a quality choice. Odds aren’t bad either.

Johnny Hockey

> Rangers ML
> Pens/Over 5.5?!

SanDiegoBruins

I’ll keep it short today because I have stuff to do:

2-1 last night. Blackhawks couldn’t beat the worst team in the league in regulation.

CBJ regulation
Isles/Bs over
LVK/Stars over
Devils ML
Jets/Bolts over
Blues regulation (2u) & PL (1u)

GLTA SDB

Oliver Trigg

I had a feeling Blackhawks might cock up like that so went heavier on the side of moneyline. I’m staying well away from reg for a while.

Adrian Žé Rosipal

7-2 totally
Tonight tips:
Double
jackets and kings

Any recommendations for “first team to score” please?

Oliver Trigg

Bruins- Islanders have gone down first in 4 of their last 5.

Adrian Žé Rosipal

what do you mean?

Oliver Trigg

Well I hope you understood me. I meant Bruins to score first, which they have, as the Islanders have a tendency to go down first.

DJ S.Cream

Tonight its
Blue Jackets ML
Rangers/Devils Over
Penguins/Leads Over
Lightning/Jets Over
Dallas ML
Sharks/Senators Over
Kings Reg.

Best of luck guys

magus1349

8 shots, 4 goals.
I need a break.

Oliver Trigg

Dude, I feel sorry for you lol You’re always picking the underdogs! Detroit aren’t even playing that bad. Sorry man! Why aren’t you taking Avs as a dog?

magus1349

Avs is on the black list lately. Think i take Oilers, Leafs and Stars PL.
But still…4 goals from 8 shots!!! This is…

Shawn

8 shots 4 goals, love it lol

Oliver Trigg

Me too hahaha. More money in the bank lol

Shawn

Sorry bro, just when you think it can’t get any worse. 6-1 great start to the day lol

Oliver Trigg

Should have listened to me on Avs 😉 Reimer is a sieve in net…

anderson

ianG, PLEASE grow up, stop pointing on lion ,we have been following him now for year ,nobody put gun on your head to play Lions pick, it your choice

IanG

Anderson – keep ur hat on! I’m just using the facts in front of us – my language is perfectly polite……..I just think hes a poor tipster and wouldn’t advise anyone following him!

lion

Thank you for your regard mate. Some people are taking it just too serious and they look after others. As you said they are not under any of pressure before taking any of my tips. But you know what? I think IanG knows I am very good on it therefore he creates his complaints after me. It is like something unacceptable. They forget that I am not an Oracles.

lion

So I think you are done with me now. Hope you ll find someone who will feed and satisfy you with her/his tips. Good luck!

Iceman

Taking Stars PL and over 6

yupyup

Thoughts on Bruins and Tampa both over 2.5 team goals?

Juri

Evening punters.

I have been watching some games recently and I have bet:
– Calgary flames – regulation
– Pittsburgh Penguins – as i promised to the Pens fan before

I really like those bets as well:
– Columbus Blue Jackets
– and the Boston Bruins

Bolts will probably win Jets, lots of goals even more probable here.

Mojo

LOVE the Habs tonight against the garbage Oilers, Habs speed should kill them and HUGE mismatch in net as well.

Like the Islanders to outscore the Bruins, Isles are off a couple losses and I see them being extremely hungry tonight, Boston is off a blowout win and don’t deserve to be nearly this kind of heavy favourite. The Isanders have gone into St.Louis and Tampa already this year and won convincingly, they do it again here.

Oliver Trigg

Brossoit & Price in net = Habs. How I see it anyway…. not to even mention Drouin being back.

Mojo

Exactly, also when you look at the two rosters there is a massive mismatch in terms of speed

Oliver Trigg

Oilers have also made quite a lot of line changes tonight, which I’m not sure will work out for them.

Geir Aage R Jensen

If u say so!

Geir Aage R Jensen

McDavid to score, i Oilers win!

Oliver Trigg

Get out of here lol

Mojo

Should I go Habs reg or ML?

Mojo

Reg always seems to burn but the odds on ML aren’t good

Oliver Trigg

At this point I am so tired of losing because I chose reg. I would rather take a lower return than not return. Hawks last night case in point. End of the day profit is profit.

Mojo

I know I just feel like when it goes to OT it becomes a crapshoot though.

Oliver Trigg

Depends on whether you want the insurance. I’ve just found myself watching games and hating myself for being greedy and taking reg. That being said I wouldn’t be surprised if Habs win in reg.

Mojo

Yeah trust me I know the feeling…I put $350 on ML and $200 reg parlayed with CBJ ML

Raphael gagne

What a bad game from my habs …. unpredictable team

Mojo

Haha the Oilers aren’t winning this game…

Oliver Trigg

When was the last time McDavid even got a goal ??

Geir Aage R Jensen

Habs have not Been bad!
? Lol ?

Oliver Trigg

Not lately no not really… not amazing but waaayy better than Oilers.

Oliver Trigg

whoops looks like you might be right now. Almost 2-0 Edmonton

Oliver Trigg

Now really 2-0

Oliver Trigg

Lol 3-0 now- you were right. I’m curious why did you think Oilers?

Geir Aage R Jensen

Last time i picked Oilers they also won, and this time, same as last time, Just feeling 🙂

Oliver Trigg

Jesus 4-0, this is crazy…

SanDiegoBruins

Johnny Boychuk is out for Isles

Mojo

Yeah I’m off that game, put a boatload down on Habs both on ML and reg. Reg portion parlayed with CBJ ML. Also have Pitt/Toronto Under 6.5 with CBJ ML

Oliver Trigg

I’m completely on Bruins.

SanDiegoBruins

Sorry bro, rough night

Geir Aage R Jensen

V. Trochek to score and i feel Panthers Win

Good luck everyone!
