It was quite the crazy night of hockey last night with a lot of close and fun games.

The Habs got back on the winning track with a great battling performance against the Rangers. Sens got a gritty win on the road in New Jersey and the Jets/Leafs had a blast out there with the Leafs winning 5-4 in overtime.

The later games were also good with Flames/Preds just crazy. What a 2nd period that was for Nashville only to lose the game. Amazing. The Preds are such a disappointment this season and there’s been so many games where they’ve dropped leads it’s crazy.

The Blackhawks got a big win against the Wild. Dubnyk pulled off 34 saves but still got beat multiple times as the Hawks won 5-3.

Onto tonight and just 3 games. We’ve got picks in two of them.

Bruins vs Ducks Betting Tips:

Since the coaching change the Bruins have been on fire. They come into this one on a 4 game winning streak and are one of only 4 teams to come off the bye week with a win.

The Ducks have been fairly inconsistent this season although Gibson has been damn solid. In saying that Rask on the road has been very good with a 15-6-4 record and a .922 save percentage.

If Rask is in net we’ll take the Bruins to continue their win streak because they just look the more consistent team. Bruins to win incl OT/SO.

USA: -110 Odds at Bovada.
Everyone Else: 1.98 Odds at 888 Sports.

Capitals vs Flyers Betting Tips:

The Capitals come into this one off the back of two losses. They lost to the Red Wings in a shootout coming off the bye week and they then lost to the Rangers. Those were two tough games. We’re banking on the Capitals to turn things around here with a win over Philly. They want to keep that distance between them and the Pens. We saw the way they schooled Philly back in January and are banking on a similar performance.

Capitals in Regulation

Canada: 2.12 Odds at 888 Sports

For the Oilers/Panthers game we were tempted by the Over 5.5. However the Panthers seem to play to their opponents in terms of goalscoring – and we couldn’t rely on the Oilers to score too much.

Tonights picks will be

Caps in reg
Caps TT over 2.5
Bruins TT over 2.5
And (MAYBE) Oilers ML



Henry Del Valle Sr.

We have a concensus bet in Wash in REG. And when the Caps do lose two in a row, they’ve gotten 3G or more 99% of the time.


they are also 7-2 after a rest

Henry Del Valle Sr.

Caps in REG
Caps TT O 2.5
Caps -.5 (+165) 1st Period
Lean FL ML
Good luck all!

NHL Daily Tips

Do you know what you got here?
Its a good old fashion sweeeeep.

Henry Del Valle Sr.

Damned close but I’ll take a 3-1 night every night. Lol

NHL Daily Tips

3-1 for me as well! But damn.. i actually had Oilers ML, but I changed it because of th Cats great form, lol

Henry Del Valle Sr.

It goes to show that the first home game back from a long road trip is a strong element in handicapping the game. Players get back home, have to run errands, laundry, kids, wife, etc. This is definitely going to factor how I play from now on.


Here the tips for tonight,

Panthers win %90
Flyers win %100
Bruins win %90 ( does not matter if Rask is out or in)

Over/Under tips

Panthers vs Oilers over 6.5
Flyers vs Capitals under 3.5
Bruins vs Ducks under 2.5

Good luck everyone

Henry Del Valle Sr.

I like it! I’m going to throw a 1/2 unit on Boston and I was looking at that under.


Why do you think that Flyers are going to win tonight though?


Flyers need to win. Capitals are weird at the moment. Not stable at all. Almost every year they are getting weird in the end of the season. ? If flyers ll score then they know how to defend the wall.


Ok, seems logical, but still not sure if thats enough for me to bet on them… Originally I wanted to take Caps in reg but now I might just avoid this match going only with Panthers and Bruins… Also the unders and overs looks interesting


Let me say you something more my friend, I trust flyers more than Panthers tonight. Panthers need to score first goal. If they do not then Oilers may destroy them. Panthers need to score first.


Ok, I might put a small bet on them, not sure yet. Do you trust any of these team in reg? Or just put everything ML?


I do not play in reg. time anymore. Because then your chance is 1 in 3 ? Yes, thats true, you ll earn little if you wont be like ?


Ok, thanks for all the tips, I´ll put it together somehow and we will see how it goes…


Caps are 4-0-1 after two losses in a row


Yuck, betting Flyers in this spot because they “need to win” makes little sense. This team is far from playing good hockey. And even if they just so happen to pull of the miracle it would be pure luck and at the listed odds it does not make that worthwhile, I need at least 3.00 odds to just make a “what the hell” bet. The Flyers just don’t matchup well against the Capitals. The only ever so slight edge they have is its a home game after a West coast road trip.

I’m more concerned with the way the Flyers are playing then the way the Capitals.

But either way…. Lets go Flyers!

Ossi Tuhkanen

AHL tips?


Caps reg & small bet on PL – Caps are 7-2 on 2 days rest and 21-7 vs team with losing records. Caps have edge in net, Holtby is 6-0-1 this month. Caps are 4-0-1 after losing two in a row and have not lost 3 straight this season.

I like Cats tonight but I wouldn’t bet the farm. They’re coming off a long and very successful road trip and might have a let down. Oilers had a tough one against Bolts last night and didn’t get to bed until late so they’ll be weary. Extra value in Cats reg.

I’ve been down on the Bruins this season but a coaching change has given them a renewed motivation and they are struggling for a playoff spot. I like them to win tonight after coming off a good win against Sharks and in front of a crowd that will have a lot of Black and Gold fans. (I’d be there but my dad is in town)

Big Salami Away Goals – I think Oilers and Cats will play a tight game but Caps and Bruins will win so I see a good chance of the away goals coming out on top.


NHL Daily Tips

I totally agree in all your arguments for your tips. But I do think the Cats/Oilers can go both way, so I’m going for the under instead of any team winning that one.
Good luck!


prob a good call on the under, although both teams have been finding themselves in some high scoring games. Best to keep bets to one unit for this game.


Noone can even think about Oilers winning Panthers ?
Btw yesterday i changed my premade bet TORvsWPG over 5.5 to Devils and got racked ))
Said that sometimes obvious bet can be there )

Henry Del Valle Sr.

I always say to go with your first gut feeling. Then stick with it.


Ha! I can’t tell you how many times I’ve regretted that approach

Henry Del Valle Sr.

FL has been playing very well and Reimer has been excellent in goal. I know this could be a flat spot for Panthers, for sure. And I know Oilers have a very decent record against the South Florida Cats plus Talbot in net scares me a wee bit. However, Oilers are 3-7 in B2Bs, 3-18 the last two seasons when scoring 1 goal or less; 5-29 in last three years. So with all that said, I lean heavily on the Panthers.


Cant get all this stats about Oilers in the past. This is just 2 different teams for now… But maybe just watch for it. Just to confirm who was right there

Henry Del Valle Sr.

Yes absolutely Edm is a different team now. My first instinct is Panthers and that’s what I am going with. Definitely stick with EDM if that’s what is in your heart.


I have to agree with you just don’t like the -145 though

Petri Kontiola

Oilers, Flyers and Duck.
Combo in regulation.

Anderson Costa

My tips for tonight,

Bruins – ML
Oilers vs Panthers – Over 5.5



What’s the better bet Under 5.5 in Panthers Oilers or Panthers win? Conflicted


I like Cats, but there are a lot of variables in this game so be careful

NHL Daily Tips

I went for the under, good luck with any choice you make for the game!


Right now I’m wishing I had taken the Under instead of Panthers on Sports Select meaning they have to win in reg


Oilers ML
Caps in reg
Ducks ML


I like all these picks. I think the Oilers are going to come out with a lot of motivation after having a tough night against Tampa, especially McDavid. I also think the Ducks will be playing very hard to try and get back to their winning ways and this could be a letdown for the Bruins.


Caps in reg coming off back to back losses is a great pick. Taking Panthers to win in regulation as they have been playing the best hockey in the league as of late and the Oilers are bound to come back down to earth a bit. Under 5.5 in Bruins/Ducks feels like by far the best bet in a game that could go either way especially considering how overrated the Ducks are. Should be another low scoring game there with two very good goalies in net.


Bos/Ana Over 5 -111

The total for the game is listed at 5 my numbers show it should be listed at 5.5O/U. The over has gone 6-2-4 head to head in the last 12 games.

Good Luck To All


I’m fairly new to betting on NHL but have followed it for years.

I’ve gone for a straight FLA win tonight.

Fingers crossed it comes in from this side of the pond.

Good luck everyone.

Christian Gee

I looked at the Caps record on the road and they do seem to score less..understandably….. but their winning record away from home isnt convincing and Flyers are stronger at home.

Arto Reinikainen

Edm-Fla OT
Ducks ML

GL !

Orhan Cypriot Ugurcag

Definitely some value on Oilers (ML) tonight, they have a good record against Panthers and Panthers are coming off of a long road trip, Oilers have a good away record and Talbot is back in net, could be close, but I do think Oilers will win.
