A good night of action last night.

McDavid scored his 3rd hat trick of the season, and 4th of his career, and the Oilers beat the Avalanche 4-2.  The Flyers offense went off and won against the Rangers 7-4.  The Jets won their 3rd in row when they beat the Panthers 7-2.

The Devils beat the Hurricanes 3-2 in OT.  Taylor Hall scored the winner and with that he extended his point streak to 18 games. 

We have 6 games scheduled for today with some starting early and the start times are spread out nicely for a day full of hockey.  It’s Family Day so I’ll keep these short to get them out early enough for people to discuss the games before they start.

Wild vs Islanders Betting Tips:

Both teams are fighting for the playoffs.  Both are in the 2nd and final wildcard spot for their respective conferences.

Having a look at the head to head matchups between these teams and their seems to be a trend of goals.  The last three games have had totals of; 10, 10 and 9.  Over the last 10 meetings of these teams there has been an average of 7 goals per game.

With both teams trying to move up in the standings and both having the ability to bury the biscuit, I like this to go over.

I agree on the over. Any value in betting on Sens or Knights?

Oliver Trigg

I wouldn’t bet Sens. Preds will be wanting a bounce back. Knights I would think is worth a shot, Ducks aren’t in the same league as them play wise.

Ben Rowland

They’re in exactly the same league – pacific

Oliver Trigg

Clearly you’re a smartass. I said “play wise” .

Ben Rowland

not as smart as you my friend. A word of advice if you’re going to change an “in reg” tip to just win, then edit the rest to make it believable.

Oliver Trigg

Mate, I changed two of my tips because one I posted on the day before post. The second one was because I made a simple mistake. I didn’t edit all of them, because I’m not trying to fool anyone. I make lossing bets just like anyone else. You, however, are just a troll who adds nothing here then talks shit. I don’t suffer fools like you.

Oliver Trigg

You can literally go and see my posts before either games started and I said take Leafs, Devils ML. So GTFO.

Oliver Trigg

Also to play your game- it’s not the “Pacific league” , it’s the “Pacific division”.

Tom Meier

Bet on Bruins and Caps, your thoughts ?

Mojo

I really like both! Both in bounce back spots playing teams they are superior too

Oliver Trigg

I reckon both are solid bets. The chalk is heavy, but both sides are in bounce back spots. Caps will be aware of their loss to the Sabres last time out and that the Pens are now top of the Met. Bruins, well, this isn’t a side who usually play as badly as they did against the Canucks. If that doesn’t wake them up, along with the potential to go top of the Atlantic, then I don’t know what will. Calgary can’t buy a win at home, and I think Smith is out again so Bruins looks good.

Lendo

I agree with you on this! (Rarely do I disagree so I guess that’s something..)

Boston need to bounce back and quickly too. They can’t afford to let another result slide by.

Calgary are just one of those teams that you never know whether they’ll a) turn up and skate or b) turn up and twiddle their thumbs.

I was half tempted to play the Bruins Reg + over 5.5 @ 4.20….what’s your thoughts?

And yeah, my other wager would be on Caps reg. They’re a superior team and i believe Eichel is still unavailable for Buffalo?? (Correct me if I’m wrong though..)

Oliver Trigg

Over 5.5 is not a bad play considering the Bruins can put up a lot of goals. Their defense has also not been as tight lately. No Eichel for Sabres , and after that game versus the Kings I’ve got to fade them. They looked lost.

Lendo

Oliver Trigg

GL!

Lendo

I figured – free bet – what have I got to lose?

Daryll Auffrey

The Isles last 4 games have been Under and Min has been Under 3 of their last 4.

Oliver Trigg

never take an under on an isles game, simply as that. Most of the time you’re going to lose your money.

SMSR

Chicago and ducks. Ill try that

magus1349

Islanders, Caps, Bruins and Ducks ML with 1u;
Lee, Connolly, Pastrnak and Fiala with 0.5u.
Also Islanders to score over 1 in first period. 2.5u @ 2.85.

Oliver Trigg

Got to be quick, as the games start and I have dissertation work to do.

Wild ML (60%)- This bet is based on two factors, how bad the Isles are and that the Wild will be looking for a bounce back after dropping their game to the Ducks. Wild haven’t lost 3 in a row in their last 20, and although the Isles have recorded back to back shutouts, this team is far from good. Beating an ailing canes and rangers means nothing to me. Wild bounce back against a leaky isles .

Caps Reg (70%) – The Sabres fell back down to earth against a motivated kings side. Caps know they lost here last time out and after being humbled by the hawks will want a bounce back here. Caps win to regain lead of the Met.

Bruins Reg (65%) – After getting hammered by the Canucks, the Bruins like the Caps will want to close the gap on the top of the Atlantic and rebound off an embarrassing loss. Calgary can’t buy a win at home, and Bruins rebound. Bruins are not a two in a row losing team right now.

Beth

I wasn’t sure about the Wild today but you convinced me!! I took them in a parlay for the early games, ?
Thanks Oliver

Lendo

Not a bad evening last night. 0.5u up on previous, and I have a free 0.5u bet from another bookmaker.

Wasn’t aware there was an early start today, so I’ll give Wild/NYI a miss. I might stream it an gauge how well each team is playing, and select a “First goal” wager or something.

Johnny Hockey

I really really bounced back in the NHL last night -> Devils, Leafs, Jets and 2/2 live bets. Tonight:

NHL -> Caps
OHL -> Knights, Sting

Oliver Trigg

Congrats man! Unfortunately I was a bit skittish yesterday so didn’t take any parlays, Avs hit me hard but then flyers, pens, devils jets and leafs all paid! I didn’t have much money to throw a round, so didn’t place much but recovered something 🙂 Lets keep it rolling.

Calle Medin

Washington Capitals will be my tips tonight – 2u.

Marius Larsen

Have a good felling on Bruins, Caps and VGK. This will be my picks tonight!

donz

Kings full time win

donz

Live bet: also seeing wild could win.Min ml

donz

got it at 1.98 let’s see

donz

happy for Scott suggestion on over. good thinking.thanks.

donz

next goal NYI 2.28

donz

well right wing players sucks
must hit puck instead

donz

:+135profit:

Syd

Congrats for the win!

donz

thanx.sometimes it happens u know it

Geir Aage R Jensen

Caps win Reg
Blackhawks win Reg

Oliver Trigg

Taking a break from work, and thought I’d update that tail, fade and avoid list.

Teams to tail –

Jets (at home) , Bruins, Vegas (especially at home) , Leafs , Stars (at home) , Coyotes (where appropriate – find the games they ‘could’ win against struggling teams such as Habs, Oilers etc – if not avoid) , Wild (at home in particular), Pens (especially at home, but looking much better on the road) , Flyers, Panthers (road and against medium to weak opposition), Devils **(based on very recent form- this is not a solid tail until I see a few more wins)

Fade- Islanders, Rangers, Habs, Oilers, Canucks, Sabres, Sens, Hawks, Jackets

Avoid – Lightning, Red Wings, Blues, Canes (many slip into fade) , Devils (avoid betting against them for now),

donz

thank you, haven’t seen blues winning some time, it’s like a reminder to me, i bet blue against sharks ;]

mark gero

Hey this is my first post but I’m going with Ottawa to win in overtime or shootout

Oliver Trigg

I think thats a bad bet mate. See my post about teams to tail, fade and avoid. Sens aren’t good at all, and especially bad on the road. Preds have only lost 3 home games in a row once this season, and they played the jets vegas and canes. Turris will want revenge for being told he was unnecessary by the Preds. I really think Ottawa is a bad bad play.

Mojo

You mean the Sens told Turris he was unnecessary?

Oliver Trigg

GM of Sens refused to keep him, more or less said he wasn’t worth the cost.

Oliver Trigg

Live bet – Caps Reg. If you haven’t taken it yet, its sitting at a +115 at the end of the 1st. Again I would be shocked if Caps don’t win this in reg.

donz

agree.
caps reg @ 2.1 – 30eur
caps to score first @ 1.8 – 50eur

Oliver Trigg

Caps have scored in the second period in 9 of 10 of their last 10 away games, a few of which gave them the lead. Caps will score second period to get ahead I think!

donz

plus, i don’t like that statistics, i think i’ts too much by that way.

donz

respect to you for doing research. today i do everything for “am i lucky today or not” ;D

Syd

Good call:) thank god it wasn’t overturned.

Oliver Trigg

It was a pathetic challenge anyway…

Syd

agreed.

donz

nice

Calle Medin

Ovetjkin 1-0. Well played!

Syd

Congrats!

donz

ahhhh wanted to bet the caps to make score but did “bet” my wife,unhappy now so i must take the Buffalo to score next at @ 2.25 – 20eur

donz

2-1!!!

Syd

Hope the lazy Caps come through for ya:) Fingers crossed!?

Oliver Trigg

Cheers my man! Would be interested to hear your thoughts on the games later!

Syd

Sure thing man.

Syd

Sens/Preds
Hope my feedback isn’t too late for ya;
No doubt Preds are the better team;
Sens 19GF/20GA; Preds 15GF/15GA last 5gms;
Anderson 3.16GA/ Rinne? 2.36GA (Preds on a btob) Sens beat Nash 4-3 OT on Preds road trip; Like the Preds but last 8/10 decided by 1 goal and last 4 in OT; Reg is possible but based on stats, risky;
Ducks/ Veg
Ducks have 2 wins and chasing WC spot so highly motivated; Ducks 11GF/11GA & Veg 21GF/13GA last 5gms; Ducks last 5 were decided by 1 goal; If Knights give up a couple, Ducks can keep this close but I like the Knights and Reg is possible;
LA/Chi
Kings have 2 wins last 5gms; 14GF/17GA
If Hawks can score 2 with some steady goal tending this could be a possible draw or a ML win. GL man!

Oliver Trigg

Small live bet – Bergeron to score.

donz

i decided to take Kings -1.5 for fun at 4.1 odd betting 215euros for fun.i’ll try to wake up and watch the game but give me best of luck.(don’t trust me guys and in my opinion wait for better matches) gl;]

Oliver Trigg

215 euros…. for fun??? Jesus.

donz

that money is not from doing works.. at leasts

Oliver Trigg

well I hope you win dude. If I was to play anyone in that game it would be Kings so good luck.

Lendo

Wow. Putting it into perspective, 1u = £10 for me.

Good luck. Hope you get the big payout!

Paxton Daley

In game bet. Boston to beat the flames. 1-1 right now

donz

hard one but must believe

Oliver Trigg

I did the same. Doubled down after they conceded. Need a strong 3rd from them.

Paxton Daley

Stressful OT… but they pulled it off

Oliver Trigg

Yeah I had some money on reg and most on ML. Had ML Bruins with reg caps. Thanks Rask!

Matthew

Going to take Knights Reg, I just cant pass on 2.05 odd for Knights at home game…

Johnny Hockey

LIVE BET: Caps to score next @2.59 (1-2)

Johnny Hockey

Here we go! Another live-win 🙂

Calle Medin

Close call!

Johnny Hockey

I always bet on a team to score next when they’re leading (because of empy net)

donz

:DDD

Johnny Hockey

This strategy went pretty good… for years!

donz

the meaning is the bookies let u win

Johnny Hockey

i still don’t know why they offer such good odds. But I won’t complain about it 😀

donz

almost always 50/50

donz

yes, hockey much more predictable on live, than before games

Calle Medin

Caps done! Even looking at Predators to bounce back after two terrible home losses at Bridgestone Arena. Your thoughts?

Oliver Trigg

I agree, but don’t like the odds. The over might be a better play.

Calle Medin

Agree, the odds are not the best…

Oliver Trigg

and Preds have disappointed so many times before.

Calle Medin

Yeah, but The Predators are the far better team and the Senators have gone just 7-20 on the road for the year, so I look for Nashville to win this one easily.

donz

don’t seek the answers u won’t get it. just bet on it if u believe it, than u will not be dissapointed

Calle Medin

What? Just discussing the conditions for the match.

donz

ok make good choices, good luck

Calle Medin

Ditto!

Calle Medin

It’s hard to imagine them not hosting a convincing comeback victory here.

Calle Medin

Wow, the odds dropped huge during the day… This morning Nashville was at 1.85, down on 1.62 now.

donz

at least my bookie gives 1.77

donz

need to see while the game starts, the odd for nash is tricky for me

Calle Medin

Preds -1.5, Kings ML and Knights in regulation will be my tips tonight – 0.5u.

Wojciech Stańko

Preds ML and Kings +1,5 in double what you think?

Michal Tyburec

Preds , Kings , Knights
All this teams over 2,5 goals ?

SMSR

Am i the only one that believes on the ducks? lol

Oliver Trigg

I certainly don’t. Give me Vegas all day.

Beth

Vegas ?

SanDiegoBruins

I have $$$ on LVK

SanDiegoBruins

Perhaps

Oliver Trigg

Adding – Preds Reg (60%) only playing this small and probably in a parlay with Vegas Reg. Preds have disappointed me too often (including in Ottawa) to play anything significant.

Preds Sens over 5.5 (60%) – Sens love to leak goals, and with the reverse fixture ending 4-3 I wouldn’t be shocked to see a 6 goal game here.

Vegas Reg (70%) – Vegas are the best side in the league without a doubt. The Ducks managed a win in OT over a very bad Wild (on the day) and were lucky that the Wild sat back and let them equalise. The Knights aren’t as lazy as the Wild and are a team that keep going at you all game. Vegas has won the last 3 meetings, and with no Kesler for Ducks this makes it even sweeter.

Kings ML (60%) – I’m not convinced by the Hawks 7-1 win against the Caps. They still suck hard. Kings are literally one win out of a playoff spot and have more to play for here. The addition of Phaeuf seems to have rejuvenated the Kings, and I’m not sure a Hawks side who have nothing to really play for stand much of a chance. Simply put Hawks are a team to fade. And above all else, I’ll take Quick over Forsberg any day. Kings are a strong dog here.

InkedFive0

Next to score LVK!!!

Oliver Trigg

How unfortunate that was… not even one goal
