3 games of hockey, 2 tight games and one blowout.

The Leafs blew the Islanders out 5-0 and man did the Leafs come to play in that one. They looked great and it’s a strong sign of the play we’re hopefully going to see from them for the 2nd half of the season. I love seeing a team like that – even when victory is practically assured, they’re still out there hungry and wanting more goals.

Our tip of the Sharks ending their losing streak didn’t pan out as the Wings also came to play and deserved the victory in that one in my opinion. It was an exciting shootout but Jones had to pull the Sharks out of the fire a fair bit during that game and it was a disappointing performance overall from San Jose.

We had a 0.5u play on the Flyers to beat the Caps and it went as expected in the 1st period with the Flyers up 2-0. Unfortunately the Caps woke up with Stephenson stepping up big and a couple of PPGs as the Caps came back to win 5-3.

It’s Thursday, February 1st and after a great January we’re hoping for more this month. A big slate tonight with 12 games on the board. Always an exciting time for tipping and analyzing hockey as you’re looking at those teams who you think are going to make the most of it in the 2nd half of the season.

Always makes it that much more risky too as we have to be careful not to hang our hats on a team too early on. Leafs would be a good example – after last nights performance I’d like to back them but can’t do so blindly and the odds just aren’t there.

Lines took awhile to come out so just quick write-ups here.

Knights vs Jets Betting Tips:

Jets without a key D man, and although Tampa struggled to get by them Tampa can be weird at times. These two teams had a great game together last time out. Knights offense has been absolutely beastly on the road lately other than that Preds game on the 16th.

Jets can play to their opponents and with the way the Knights play, we like this one to be high scoring.

Unit/Confidence Betting Tips:

Jets/Knights Over 5.5: 1u

Lightning to win incl OT/SO: 0.5u: Tampa aren’t great on the bounce back but the Flames are piss poor at home. They were unlucky against the Knights but that’s gotta hurt their confidence. We feel the price is good enough to back Tampa here.
