The Chicago Blackhawks finally ended their long losing streak, and they did it in typical ludicrous hockey fashion by blowing out one of the top 5 teams in the East.

It was a massive 7-1 as all of the shots the Hawks have been piling up on teams finally worked out – and they were able to stop the goals going in at the other end too.

It was a night full of shocks and upsets with Tampa and Boston also losing. What a 1st period performance that was by the Canucks. We cashed with our 1u play of the Leafs/Penguins over in what was a great game which went over with ease which was nice.

There was some good live betting chat during the games and some good tips flowing around so be sure to hang around in the comments and check that out during todays games. I only posted the one suggestion which was the Wings to win. They were actually underdogs when they were 1-0 up on the Preds and I looked at the math and it looked like an +EV play.

We’ve got games all day today starting at noon EST. Honestly nothing I really like today that much. Just a couple of 0.5u plays – one where I see value in a big underdog, one where I’m too hesitant to pull the trigger on it being an official tip.

It’s one of those days where I could argue for both sides on a lot of the games and see a lot of tight games. I’m just doing a fun bet today where I bet all 7 games to have overtime. I bet them in doubles & trebles. It’s an -EV bet in the long run but always a fun bet for me on a day like this with potentially high rewards. Something to do while I have a lazy Sunday watching the final round at Pebble Beach along with the hockey.

Plus hey, I’m feeling a bit flush after my Joost Luiten 22/1 win and my Hannah Green 40/1 place from my Golf Betting Tips Website!

Unit/Confidence Betting Tips:

(We are experimenting with adding unit/confidence to our betting tips. For more details see this post.)

Panthers to win: 0.5u. A good price here considering the Panthers recent run on the road. They’re a team fighting for wins and with confidence. Jets got that big win on Friday which we backed but they’ve been a bit shaky and I think the Panthers have a good chance of taking this game.

Avs to win: 0.5u. MacKinnon is back which is great but something like that can also temporarily upset a team. Avs were playing a bit above the mean on that run anyway and so I’m hesitant to fully back them here. Just the small play.
