A good night for us with the tips as we went 1-0.

We went with Over 6 in the Wild vs Islanders game and the Wild won 5-3.

The Capitals beat the Sabres 3-2.  Ovechkin scored his 35th goal of the season.  This is the 10th time in his career that he has hit this number.

The Hawks got back to their losing ways when the Kings won 3-1.  The Hawks are now 1-8-1 over their last 10 games and are comfortably in last place in the Central, 8 points behind the 6th place team. Phaneuf scored his 2nd goal since joining the Kings.
 
The Red Wings traded Petr Mrazek to the Flyers for a couple draft picks.  This is going to help the Flyers as both their goalies, Elliott and Neuvirth, are down with injuries.  With only 6 days left until the trade deadline I hope we see some more big names like this getting moved.

We have 9 games going on tonight.

Panthers vs Maple Leafs Betting Tips:

The Panthers have been playing some good hockey going 7-3 over their last 10 games.  They are going to need to continue that play to climb back into the playoffs picture.

The Leafs are 8-2 over their last 10 games. They are sitting in 3rd in the Atlantic Division.

Both teams are coming into this game scoring goals.  The Panthers last 4 games have hit 9, 9, 7 and 12.  The Leafs last 4 hit 5, 8, 9 and 7.

I like this one to continue being high scoring .

Predators vs Red Wings Betting Tips:

The Predators have been playing some great hockey of late.  They are such a strong team who made the finals last year and I expect them to have another good playoffs this time around.  They are sitting in 1st place in the Central, tied with the Jets but have a game in hand.

The Wings have began moving some of their players with the trade of Mrazek.  They have a long way to go to make the playoffs and I don’t see it happening and neither do they.

Predators win incl OT/SO

Lightning vs Capitals Betting Tips:

The Lightning are leaking goals this month allowing 3.4 per game.  The are no longer in first place in the League but are still in first in the East.

The Caps are in 1st place in the Metro division.
But they are 5-3-2 over their last 10 games so i expect them to close out the year strong to better their spot in the standings for the playoffs.

The last time these two played each other it stayed under but the two before that went over.  I like this one to do that too

Im looking at montreal over philly. +220 im reg +140 SU. I know montreal isnt playing great. But philly will be starting there 3/4th string goalie. I think thats enough for the habs to get the W.

Steve Dimase

I will use mont today in a small parlay GL

Syd

Yeah Lyon has only played in 4gms and has a (3.27GA) but he played 40min vs NYR on Sun, made 26 sav and 1GA. He might give up a couple but the Flyers can score (21GF last 5) vs Habs (10GF last 5) and If the they protect Lyon, with Price (daily face off)in net(2.98GA) the Flyers have the edge. Habs have traveled a lot playing their last 3 on the west coast too. Flyers beat Habs 5-3 in Feb. Sorry G:)

magus1349

Blue Jackets, Red Wings, Oilers and Avalanche with 1u;
Konecny, Nylander, Schenn and Maroon with 0.5u.

All in of the day (please post just for the fun of it):

Peter Johns

My pick TOR-Reg

donz

nice night yesterday 1000~eur profit.tonight i’ll try with blue in reg. GL

SMSR

Confident on the blues?

donz

i can’t be confident on any team, as i played this sport for years i really know that for example caps can beat lightning with ease

SanDiegoBruins

Did you just say that the Capitals can beat the Bolts with ease? The same Capitals that got beat by the Blackhawks 7-1 and lost to the Red Wings, Canes, Yotes and Rangers? It’s certainly _possible_ that the Bolts who have 5 more wins and 6 more points than the Caps won’t show up, but it’s not probable.

Lendo

Did you watch the Capitals game? They looked awful compared to the level they are capable of playing at.

I wouldn’t be surprised if Tampa won this by a goal or 2.

Syd

I agree. Lazy and don’t plan with any enthusiasm.

Lendo

I was right on Tampa. Big win for the Bolts.

Syd

The stats back Leafs/ Panthers Over. Last 5gms: Leafs22GF/16GA & Fla 20GF/23GA; In his 1st gm back, Luongo had 3GA vs Flames, took 33SOG and got the win. Panthers have been on a west coast road trip since the 12th and playing in their 3rd in 4 nights. If they protect Luongo they have a chance but I like my Leafs in Reg.
GL

John Uduak

i agree with you on Leafs

Syd

Also thinking of Leafs to score 1st. Don’t have the stats to support this but I’ve heard sports analysts comment regularly the Leafs & Jets are tied for 1st in scoring the 1st goal.
Of course, means nothing If Panthers get one lucky bounce…GL

SanDiegoBruins

Don’t discount CBJ, they are a very fast and skilled team and goalie Bob can steal a game. I like the over in this one.

Steve Dimase

I’m all over cbj let’s see gl

Kris- -na

”The Predators have been playing some great hockey of late.”

:O
Disagree

SanDiegoBruins

I concur. However, after losing to the Red Wings two nights ago the Preds are going to be looking for some pay back and two important points. They may be short on talent but I love the Red Wings youth and heart, but when the Preds want to play hard they’re a much better team. I’d be very surprised if they don’t show up tonight.

Juri Safoshin

Flyers, Maples Leafs, Canucks – taking a risk, all average single bets, -1.5 puck line.

GLTA

SanDiegoBruins

one unit on the following:
Cats/Leafs over 6 -130
Bolts ML -125
CBJ/Devils over 5.5 -120
Preds ML -115
Sharks ML +140 (aside from a let down vs Yotes, the Sharks have been playing some very good hockey in the past 5 games. Blues are a tough team but over-valued in my opinion and they have been slumping lately)
Bruins ML -135
Nucks ML -120

GLTA SDB

Oliver Trigg

I’m watching champions league right now so I’ll get back to this forum after that. However, got to say I disagree with the assertion that Preds have been playing great hockey. 3-4 last 7 with two wins in OT ? And one of those being against the horrendous Habs? Yeah no. They’ve been playing distinctly average at best. Preds are a trap bet so often because people (myself included ) give them more credit than they’re often due.

SanDiegoBruins

The Red Wings beat them a few nights ago. Do you really expect that the Preds won’t show up for this one?

Oliver Trigg

I never know what to expect from the Preds lately

Western Rattlers

To WIN in reg: Winnipeg
LA has had some wins recently, but against teams that don’t generally impress me.

Lean: Winnipeg OVER. Winnipeg finishes up a 10-game home stay and Los
Angeles finishes a 7-game away trip. Both teams scoring well enough to
support OVER 5.5, but their defense is showing many low scores, so this
is a less certain outcome.

Agree with Tampa OVER. In the last 10 games each for Tampa and Washington (against anyone), 16 of 20 were OVER 5.5, 14 of 20 were OVER 6.5 and 3 of 20 totaled 5, so the goal gravity is very high there these days.

Much less sure about Toronto/Florida going OVER. Only 9 of 20 of their most recent games each have been over 6.5. Their only game with each other this season went way Under, and if the line was 5.5, I’d be on it for sure. Toronto at home and Florida away are where they go OVER more, but 5.5 is more a league average for games and 6.5 worries me here.

Funny that Boston has lost its last five games against Edmonton, and Edmonton hasn’t been a strong team is ages. Boston just beat Calgary but as we’ve seen on the western Canadian swings, results of the three cities are not too predictable sometimes. Altitude change and travel. Boston has not had a day off after playing Calgary, but when the best plays the worst, that’s when the worst teams win, when the motivation levels are opposite to talent levels. Staying off it.

SanDiegoBruins

You’re forgetting the Lucic factor 🙂 Trust me, Bruins will be very motivated to beat the Oilers.

Juri Safoshin

Like Jets, enjoy their matches, but didn’t like the missing players count tonight. Anyway, 0.5 units at -1.5 puck line.

Rather lean Preds, to win at regulation, but i won’t bet on them. Smth. is wrong with them current season, they are not bad, they are motivated, but they loose too much.

Marius Larsen

Have combined some NHL and soccer today. Barcelona, Flyers and -1 on Leafs. Need some luck to get this one in, but lets hope for the best!

SMSR

Not an easy one Barca

Marius Larsen

Not at all, Chelsea is using the chances they get very well!

Oliver Schütz

have Chelsea/Barca X and Bayern/Besiktas over 2.5 and Bayern wins (prob Hummels or Robben to score second goal:) xx

Marius Larsen

Draw is not bad, was thinking about playing that my self. Besiktas is not a bad team tho, but Bayern should be able to put some more goals.

Oliver Schütz

4:0 Bayern, was just waiting for it. They can play w. headphones on now in Istanbl. Just waiting for another yellow card, surpisingly low on cards expt. the early red one. Will need a good tip to win tonite on hockey later on now..

Oliver Schütz

next goal Barcelona 1:1

Oliver Schütz

boom

Marius Larsen

Barcelona is best when they are under! They need a wake up call sometimes

Tony Le

You gotta share Ur soccer’s picks with us. Very respectable pick

SanDiegoBruins

Does anybody know where I can game log stats by team?

Syd

Hey, oddsshark.com may have what you’re looking for. Click on a ‘match’ go down to last 10 gms. You can pick game logs for any team and
season.

SanDiegoBruins

thank you. Not exactly what I was looking for because it doesn’t provide SOGF and SOGA by game. Any idea where to find that?

Syd

Can’t remember. Look at lots of hockey sites. I’ll keep it in mind though and let you know.

Kris- -na

Oddsharks have SOGF and SOGA by game info. Scroll down and there is the last 10 games you can see. Or just click on game logs and choose any game you want

Bob Rodgerson

You will have to filter through a few fields, but nhl. com will give you individual team stats. I put in Boston, filter results by “shots on goal” results 32.2, against 29.2. You can also put in their opponent.

Calle Medin

I like Flyers tonight.

Lendo

SNAP.

SanDiegoBruins

Simmonds is out and rookie goaltender. I like over.

Syd

Didn’t know simmonds was out earlier. Could affect
their offense tonight. Think they can win or keep it close and take it to a draw knowing the Habs crappy record lately?

SanDiegoBruins

Hard to predict this game with the variables of Lyon and Simmonds and Habs getting Arnalt back. I like the over

Geir Aage R Jensen

Red wings win ML
Blues win ML
Canucks win Reg (Main bet)

Oilers win Reg , bruins should win, but lets see

Panthers win and over 5.5

Canadiens win and over 5.5

Lendo

Outrageous 0.1u parlaycomment image

Steve Dimase

parlay CBJ PL JETS ML NUCKS ML

Mojo

Why CBJ? They are struggling an incredible amount and NJ is rolling…

Steve Dimase

Not the way I bet but gut feeling.. also NJ goalie far from a stud..

Mojo

Yeah did you watch Bobrovsky last game? Was awful

Steve Dimase

Its one game in the NHL..

Mojo

Yeah but he’s been shaky over the past month or so

Steve Dimase

I agree

Steve Dimase

Took the Nucks over Bos on a gut feeling paid off then.

Mark

over 6 Philla
both to score 1st period Caps Bolts
Devils reg
Sharks ML
Bratt, Kunitz, Subban, Tierney, Bozak, DeBrusk, Armía to score
lets go GL all 🙂

Calle Medin

Flyers will be my tips tonight – 2u.

Michal Tyburec

Lyon in the net ?

Calle Medin

Still a decent offensive.

Oliver Trigg

Got to be super quick as games start-

Flyers ML – Wanted to take habs due to injuries and rookie goalie for flyers, but flyers are just two wins off a playoff spot. They’re at home and have dominated the Habs. Got to ride the hot hand, instead of trying to predict if the Habs get it together.

Will add I as I play.

Oliver Trigg

Adding – Over 5.5 Flyers v habs. Both sides leak.

Oliver Trigg

Got to take Bolts ML- They’ve not lost 4 in a row on the road yet this season. Caps were not convincing versus Sabres. Good bounce back for bolts

Oliver Trigg

Favourite plays – Bruins Reg, Leafs Reg (also like over 5.5) , and small play on Devils ML.

Tony Le

U r on fired today

Oliver Trigg

I’m on fire ?? Or I’m fired ???

Oliver Schütz

got Leafs +Flyers +Bruins to win, NJ/CBJ & Caps/Bolts over 5.5, Preds x2 + Czech-USA under 5.5 olympics. Ugh fingers xed.

Tony Le

Good win,

Oliver Trigg

Adding – Jets Reg – Kuemper probably in net, and Jets have owned this series. Kings have had a nice few wins lately but not against teams in the same form as the Jets.

Bruins Reg/ML- I doubt the Bruins will need OT again tonight. After scoring only 2 goals in their last 2 games (despite playing well in against the flames) I wouldn’t be surprised to see a motivated offense tonight. Oilers got a win off the Avs but just barely thanks to McDavid. Bruins will want revenge for the loss the Oilers gave them earlier this season. Bruins are a world away better than the Oilers so think reg is fairly safe.

Oliver Trigg

I’ll admit, I may well be wrong on my flyers pick after seeing the Habs goal. I was very torn about that, loved Habs as a dog trying to get a win for a change. That being said I couldn’t put my money on a team who has just found ways to lose and with less reasons to win.

Oliver Schütz

Flyers might come back, 10/8 shots for Flyers, need em

Oliver Trigg

I had earlier chosen Habs, the odds were superb and Habs don’t want to lose yet another game. I took Flyers because of their historical success and because they need just 2 more wins to be in a playoff spot. I just saw the Coyotes Habs score again (5-2) and thought “there is no way I can back this team right now”. In all honesty I think this was a game to take a total or avoid rather than pick a side, but we shall see…

Oliver Schütz

Flyers playing better now, great equalizer goal, more hot shots, home ground, fingers xd

Oliver Trigg

Flyers do have a good history of scoring in the 2nd, so here’s hoping.

jmskippy

Thanks for the tips last night…
Had success with my previous tennis tip so here’s what I am doing today.
WTA
Muguruza
Osaka
Pliskova

Good luck!

Oliver Trigg

Konta to win in straight sets also looks fairly good.
