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.

Rangers, Avalanche, Huricanes and Jets with 1u.

Geir Aage R Jensen

Rangers win Reg

Marius Larsen

Hello fellow betters!
It was an awful night yesterday as both Bolts and Bruins lost, but I’m just trying to forget about all that lol..

Right now I’m struggling to justify the odds that are given on San Diego Gulls (AHL) to win in reg, atm it is 4.00 and 1.65 on Regin! Yesterday Gulls beat the Reign 5-2 at home meeting them again away tonight. Gulls has 8 straight wins, with two matches going to OT. On the other hand Regin are 3 – 2 – 3 last 8 matches. H2H this season is in Gulls favor (3-1-1). This can go both ways but for 4.00 I will try.

Combining Gulls with North Bay Battalion and the Leafs all in reg. Good luck guys!

magus1349

Thanks for Gulls tip!

Marius Larsen

Np, lets hope this turns out right!

Marius Larsen

Gulls is down to 3.45 now.

Oliver Trigg

Magus, thinking you might be missing a big dog on NJD.

magus1349

Maybe. Maybe not.

Marius Larsen

good luck, hope it goes in!

Syd

Hi guys,
Hope all the ‘live’ bets came through for ya and any of you (starting out) that tried the ‘next team to score line’ on the Van/Bos’ line didn’t lose a lot of money. Perfect example where you see the ‘underdog’ (Van) who don’t score a lot, go up a couple of goals and pick the fav (Bos) to score next (logical prediction) but Van scores 5 in a row! Who could predict that? Rare yes but goes to show ya when you’re watching any game and the fav is playing well, it doesn’t necessarily turn into goals. One bad bounce and before you know it, the dog scores! ! Anyways, just part of the learning experience…and trying to stick to your bankroll. Good luck tonight guys:)

Juri Safoshin

Hard to predict matches tonight. All of them )))

So i took Avs and Hurricanes.

Syd

Hurricanes were shutout vs the Isles but played well. Puck didn’t bounce their way. Jersey on a btob and could be tired playing the Bolts last night so the Canes could come on top:)

Juri Safoshin

Thanks 😉

Oliver Trigg

Devils are bad playing on no rest, but that being said Devils are pulling rabbits out of hats right now. Devils beat them 5-2 a few weeks back, so they may be a fighting dog here.

Oliver Trigg

Well yesterday was f*cking sh*t. I went far too heavy on a bruins/vegas parlay, and suffered to the tune of £500 including my losses of the wild, bruins, sabres,bolts and Preds. Horrendous night with some ludicrous upsets. I will freely admit my bankroll took a massive hit because I was far too confident in the wild and especially the Bruins. I had quite a few parlays with Vegas,Bruins Vegas, Bolts Vegas, Wild etc. So as you can imagine everything went tits up. I made about £100 back on Kvitova in the tennis, by betting her when she was down, but recovering 1/5th of what I lost last night isn’t anything to shout about. Oh and yesterday I had a bet on Kvitova to beat Wozniacki (which she did) but I accidentally cashed it out for £2 when she was losing (I had bet £50) so things have started sour this weekend. FML.

Todays picks-

POTD- Avs (75%) – Avs are a home fortress and currently sit 3 points out of a playoff spot. They need this win badly. The Oilers just keep losing, and after a long losing road trip are most likely tired and pissed off. MacKinnon is back, and that should boost the team. Simply put, I thought the Oilers would bounce back against the Yotes, but instead found themselves shutout. The Oilers are too bad to back- take the Avs who have more to play for.

Pens Reg/ML (65%/70%) – The Pens are in superb form right now, and despite being weak on the road should manage just fine here. The Jackets are being overestimated by bookies, considering they’ve won just 4 of their last 14. The Pens have lost just 5 of their last 20. The Pens offence is firing again, whilst it seems the Jackets can only score against subpar opponents. The Pens won their last road game as a dog, and regardless of rest think they’ll do so here again. Im not trusting a jackets side that has scored 2 goals or less in regulation time at home in their last 11 games.

Jets Reg (60%) – I wasn’t sure about the Jets in their game versus the Avs, but they swept they aside with ease. The Panthers are no pushovers, and have been on an excellent run lately winning 7 of their last 8. I was very much not a fan of this pick until I noticed one thing. The Panthers wins have all come against fairly weak opposition, or against sides who struggle to win at home. Wins against the Flames, Canucks(x2),Oilers, Wings , Sabres and Islanders are not about to impress me that much. In their last 3 games the Panthers have given up 11 goals. The Jets are a home juggernaut, and in a different league in terms of home performances to the sides listed above. They also have no problem putting the puck in the the net on home ground. That being said I think the Panthers get shot down back to earth here, and have their streak cracked by the Jets

TTO 3.5 Jets- With this having cashed in 14 of the last 20 games the Jets have played at home, I think its worth a play against a Panthers side who aren’t the best defensive team in the NHL.

Oliver Schütz

hi Oliver, cant get goals w my bookie, you think Jets/Panthers will go over 5.5, or 2 each? Thanks!

Oliver Trigg

Over 5.5 is also a good play with Jets! Very rarely low scoring games.

jmskippy

Tennis ACCAs make me the best money

Oliver Trigg

You should post them here!

jmskippy

Point taken 🙂
I will try to get into doing that

jmskippy

Tennis for tomorrow…
Don’t curse me if you lose but this is a good bet, seriously…a 4 match ACCA at about 4.5
Pablo Cuevas (never lost to Monteiro)
Gael Monfils (never played opp but in better form and better ranking)
Albert Ramos Vinolas (beaten opp on clay)
Dominic Thiem (never lost to Lajovic)

You can look up their form and H2H

GL

Oliver Trigg

Cheers man!

Oliver Trigg

Live bet- Flyers ML and to score next goal

Oliver Trigg

Whoops, as I write that Flyers score. Ffs too late.

Oliver Trigg

Still taking Flyers ML now that Rangers have equalised.

Oliver Trigg

Adding – Leafs ML (65%)- Leafs have lost just 3 of their last 13 games, and neither side has a rest advantage here. What the Leafs do have right now though is an electric offence, having scored 3 or more goals in all but 3 of their last 13 games. Detroit isn’t bad per say, but with Leafs wanting to get back on the win column I’m not sure Detroit has the guns to stop them.

Syd

More travel time from Nash to Pit;) Howard plays more than McElinney so Wings could sneak a couple past him but Leafs offense is better. Even if both are on a btob, think the Leafs have the edge.

Oliver Trigg

I think Leafs are too offensively aggressive right now not to back.

Western Rattlers

Considering matchups and recent play, I see five strong leans:
1) Toronto and Colorado to WIN, and
2) Toronto and Winnipeg games go OVER
3) Colorado UNDER (because Edmonton will not contribute more than one goal and Colorado will be able to coast after scoring three.)

magus1349

Rangers to score next 1.5u @ 2.04.

Geir Aage R Jensen

Rangers sucks and Flyers will win!

Oliver Trigg

Pretty sure you edited this from “Rangers Reg”

magus1349

:))

Graeme (BetNHL.ca)

Yep he did ha. No need to edit stuff Geir we all win and lose it happens. And no need to worry about any trolls off a losing tip/bet I’ll shut em down.

Calle Medin

I’ll side with the Avs tonight – 2u.

Oliver Trigg

G&S, and anyone else. What do you think of a Devils win tonight? I know its a back to back, but Devils beat the Canes 5-2 just a few weeks back and should be motivated after that Tampa win surely?

Graeme (BetNHL.ca)

Looking at the odds I’d say its a play for sure. Canes are one of those teams where if you bet against them at 2.00 blindly every time, it’s probably an +EV bet. And I’m seeing as high as 2.65 so yeah it’s a play and I’d advise a 0.5u play on it for our tips unit sizing.

Oliver Trigg

Cheers Graeme. I like Pens tonight (averaging 4 goal a game and conceding just over 2) what do you think?

Graeme (BetNHL.ca)

It’s a tight one and I think the odds are dead on for this one. Love the way the Pens are playing at the moment but still not convinced on them on the road. Add in B2B, potential over confidence etc. If I was betting I’d rather be on Pens for sure in that one but I think the price is just right on them. But then I’m being overly cautious of them on the road atm

Oliver Trigg

I think they may have turned their road play around in St Louis. That 4-1 game, they dominated in all areas of the ice. Besides, the Jackets have been really poor lately. Beating the Islanders and Devils is nothing to shout home about. The Flyers conceded 4 to the Rangers today, and all the jackets could get was one??? I think Pens are a strong dog play.

Oliver Trigg

Live bet – No more goals in Flyers v Rangers (6-4). at +460

Oliver Trigg

I underestimated Rangers ability to be shit on this one.

Geir Aage R Jensen

Avalanche win Reg

Jackets win Reg

Red Wings win ML

Sharks win Reg and over 5.5

Johnny Hockey

AHL: Bruins, Americans, Wolves – all in regulation. NO NHL ANYMORE!

Oliver Trigg

Might get on that with you. NHL battered me to death last night

Johnny Hockey

I bet on these leagues (AHL, OHL, WHL) for two weeks now and I made some nice profit 😉 NHL is disappointing me so much right now.

Oliver Trigg

Hhhhmm, enough profit to warrant playing it? Like if its just +1unit etc then I won’t both lol

Johnny Hockey

So much that I’ll bet on it in the future 🙂 Would be more if i don’t bet on the NHL the last day ^^

jmskippy

do you just bet favourites? or got some inside information? i followed Syracuse, and made some cash for a while, but then their form went out of the window.

Johnny Hockey

Just because of the form of a team & their home/away performances. No inside infos.

Johnny Hockey

I added a bet: Gulls ML – huge odds!

Oliver Trigg

Live bet- Avs to score next goal. They’re putting a lot of shots on goal.

Oliver Trigg

Dud. Oilers score with only their second shot on goal in the period.

Graeme (BetNHL.ca)

That was an unlucky one. Oilers just look so shit out there it’s unreal.

Oliver Trigg

And yet they come up with the win. Avs did a wild and took their foot off the gas.

Richy

Oliver, live bets is just not fot you 😀

Oliver Trigg

You mean like the live bet on Flyers ML, and flyers to score next goal?

Richy

No, i’m talking about Avs to score next, and few minutes after Oilers scored, like Flyers last game

Oliver Trigg

Yeah its tough luck, especially when Avs were controlling the game. My flyers to score next didn’t lose though? After it was 4-3 I only placed Flyers ML.

Richy

I guess i missed that bet, but i’m talking about ”4-6 not to score anymore” bet

Oliver Trigg

Yeah that was more of a gamble. I only took it cause of the insane odds. Only played it small.

Benson

Avs Reg
Panthers Reg
Avs Reg, Stars Reg, Panthers ML parlay

Oliver Trigg

Avs Reg? Lol the game is two thirds of the way done.

Benson

Just posting my picks late. Made the bets before the games started.

Oliver Trigg

Avs 1-1. Lets hope we get an Avs goal then

Oliver Trigg

Swwweeeettttt 2-1. 😀

Benson

I’ll take it! 😀

Beth

I think Benson is just stating his picks for the day
If like the rest of us he knows when the games are on ??
Good luck Benson!!!
Go Avalanche !! I took them too!!

Oliver Trigg

McDavid wants to make us all poorer.

Beth

He’s doing a good job of too 🙂

Oliver Trigg

I’ll enjoy seeing the Oilers lose every game from here on. Did not need another kick to the wallet after last night. What are you on for later ?

Johnny Hockey

NHL thoughts:

> DEVILS – great value here. I think they can win.

> LEAFS – better team, good shape (11 games, only 2 losses). But I don’t know how good McElhinney is?!

> JETS – i really like the Jets at home. Cats defense is too shaky.

Pat

McElhinney has a strong record so far this season going

6-4-0, 2.27, 0.932, including 2 SO. I think Babcock wants to win back in Detroit. Add to this that Mike Green is ruled out, TOR’s road record of 16-12-3 vs DET’s 12-11-7 home standing, that’s worth it.

*Toronto is 4-2 SU in its last 6 games when playing on the road against Detroit

*Toronto is 5-1 SU in its last 6 games

*Detroit is 2-6 SU in its last 8 games at home.

GL

Johnny Hockey

LIVE BET: Oilers with a good 3rd! Avs with two injuries (both defense) -> Oilers to score next (@2.88)

Johnny Hockey

2:2 – finally!

Johnny Hockey

Oilers to score next (6th goal) @2.55

Johnny Hockey

2:4 – empty net goal $$$

Oliver Trigg

I hate McDavid ???

Mark

Oilers one man show like always xD

Lendo

Enjoyed the live bet chat last night. Got a good yet small return on Anaheim.

No live chat for me tonight, though. Early work tomorrow!

NJD in reg @ 1.95 -places just before end of 1st period. 1u

Leafs/Pengs ML double @ 3.89
0.5u

Enjoy your day/evening!

Oliver Trigg

Live bet – Devils to win reg. Considering you’re given a one goal cushion and still getting plus money it’s definitely worth it.

Ben Rowland

nice edit

Oliver Trigg

Also edited because I didn’t take reg 😉 Said before the game to take Devils straight up to win. You do realise there are plenty of other tips here I posted that failed? I didn’t edit because I thought it would lose. I edited because that’s what I had played. I can give you bet slips if you want lol

Ben Rowland

“still getting plus money” up 1 goal with 1 period to go, please direct me to your bookie because I need that action!

Oliver Trigg

888 sport. Wait 1 minute and I’ll attach the bet slip.

Ben Rowland

Oliver Trigg

Mate jog on, I already gave you one bet slip which proved you wrong. Not wasting my time with you anymore.

Oliver Trigg

Live Bet – Leafs to score next goal. Jumping on Leafs ML doesn’t look too bad an idea either.

Oliver Trigg

Live bet- NCAAB Panthers +11.5. They’re only a few points behind and the game is almost over. I don’t think Florida is going to hit the spread.

Ben Rowland

nice edit

Oliver Trigg

Yeah because I had placed the live bet on the wrong page, and with the wrong spread ;).comment image

Ben Rowland

just accidentally typed 11.5 instead of 13.5 and then they conveniently lose by 13. Only you know if you’re lying but for some reason unbeknownst to me you seem to have built an audience on this message board. As a result im sure there may be people who actually follow these bets, so take a little more responsibility

Oliver Trigg

Bro, how about you go and look at the screenshot which verifies that I placed it at 13.5. No convenience. I take plenty of responsibility, so don’t pipe up when you see two edited bets. What of the others ? What of the proof I’ve provided? What of my comments BEFORE the games? Oh right you have zero response for that. I hit Devils, Leafs and Pens last night with the only fail being Avs so don’t act like I’m posting here to fuck over everyone.

Oliver Trigg

And here you go just in case you open your mouth again.comment image

Oliver Trigg

The reason I’ve got an audience is I give out good tips and yes sometimes atrocious ones, not “lies”. Stop being so hostile.

Oliver Trigg

Live bet – Jets ML. I don’t think Panthers being 1 goal ahead is going to win this for them. Jets are superb at home, and have comeback from going down before.

Oliver Schütz

wtf one down not again
