It was a 1-0 night last night with the NHL Tips, as the Pittsburgh Penguins won with ease over the Carolina Hurricanes.

The Penguins dominated from the off and made it 6 in a row with a huge 6-1 victory.

It could have been a 2-0 night if I hadn’t wiped out the Wild pick at the last moment. That was one where we had both agreed on it and the write-up was done, then I did my final look through and I noticed on the 2nd leg of a B2B that their offense seems to go to sleep.

I looked into that more and watched some action from those previous games and decided it wasn’t worth pulling the trigger. As it is, the whole team could have probably been asleep and still beaten the New York Rangers!

What a mess that franchise has become. That’s 6 losses in a row and you have to wonder if they’re going to be able to pick up the pieces.

Auston Matthews isn’t playing tonight for the Leafs and I’m sure that’ll put people towards Boston. Just one thing to remember is that with Matthews gone back in December there, the Leafs went 2-4 without him. However all 4 losses were on the road, and the 2 wins were at home.

Apologies if the site is slow over the next day or two or even goes down – I’m moving like 70 websites off this server onto my new one and it can be a hell of a resource hog at times.

Senators vs Flyers Betting Tips:

Flyers on the road lately have been scoring the goals while for the most part conceding a lot. There’s been a lot of 7+ goal thrillers involving the Flyers on the road lately.

Let’s hope for one more as we back the Over 5.5 tonight. The Sens are in that free flowing mode of hockey where they know the seasons over with, and they are leaking goals while also scoring goals. Of course I followed this 9 days ago when I backed over in the Sabres/Sens game and that one didn’t come through – so it was even more annoying seeing a 9 goal game and a 7 goal game immediately follow it.

Have to hope this one follows it and we see a similar game to their February 3rd matchup. Flyers are in a little roll and they’ll want to come here and get the W. Mrazek was protected well in his first game for them but I think they’ll loosen up a bit defensively.

Coyotes vs Ducks Betting Tips:

Bear in mind the Ducks are one of those teams I generally hate to bet.

However the Coyotes have had their winning run cut off and the Ducks are playing some solid hockey with back to back shutouts and just solid but tight performances. They’re fairly solid on the road and they’ve had success when coming to Arizona for the most part.

Ducks are on a roll and hopefully the confidence they have in Miller will allow their offense to start ticking.

Ducks incl OT/SO

Unit/Confidence Betting Tips:

(We are experimenting with adding unit/confidence to our betting tips. For more details see this post.)

1u on the above picks.

Canes to win: 0.5u. This is a series where the road team seems to win more often than not. Road team has won 7 of the last 10. Canes are generally good at breaking these little losing streaks so I’m fine with backing them here.

Penguins to win: 0.5u. I crashed and burned backing the Caps here in Florida and I mentioned that I hate betting against the Panthers at home.

Lightning to win in Regulation: 0.5u. Scott likes this one, I’m a bit wary so only half a unit. He thinks Tampa will be nice and motivated as they could move into 1st overall. I’m just a bit concerned about their results lately with loses to the Sabres, Oilers, Leafs and Devils and a few close games. They do have the motivation, but the Habs have a couple of solid results at home and may have the confidence here.

OHL / WHL / AHL / KHL Betting Tips:

WHL Betting Tips (27-24, +1.54u): 0.5u double on Tri-City and Spokane in reg. 2.40 odds. 0.5u on Medicine Hat in reg.

AHL Betting Tips (32-34, -3.84u): 0.5u on Chicago Wolves incl OT/SO at 2.15. Syracuse in reg 0.5u 2.10.

Penguins play amazing hockey last three weeks and i will bet them again tonight…other bets
Flames incl ot/so
Ducks incl ot/so

Paxton Daley

Flames Gillies in net. I think this is going avs way.

Syd

Thanks for the info. I didn’t see a goalie ‘confirmed’ on dailyfaceoff. What site did you see it?

Paxton Daley

It is on the score app. But i might wait for a confirmed goalie before i place my wager

Syd

Yeah, always a good idea to wait till goalies are confirmed. Good luck!

Mojo

Really like the Flames in this spot

Oliver Trigg

I don’t think it’s going Avs way. Johnson being out leaves a big hole in Avs D.

SanDiegoBruins

Agree on Pens

magus1349

Senators, Avalanche, Islanders and Ducks with 1u;
Erik Karlsson, Kerfoot and Barzal with 0.35u.

Lendo

Well done to those who placed and won yesterday. Enjoy your winnings!

Thanks to some comments by a select few contributors, I dodged some bad choices and was up by 2.4units profit.

I’m going to stretch my wagers over a few hours tonight. Firstly, I have confidence in philadelphia to win in Regulation. Sens are evidently missing Phaneuf and Karlsson can’t do it all by himself. Anderson isn’t a great goalie and Philly are clicking on their offence. I like it. Mrazek is an experienced keeper and I think Philly edge it on the offensive side.

magus1349

No Konecny and no Simmonds at Flyers.

Lendo

Sens are not a good enough outfit. Flyers are on a 4 game win streak.

That’s enough for me.

Oliver Trigg

But no Phaneuf, Brassard or any decent team play for Sens lol

Iceman

Thanks Greame

Syd

Like the Kings to bounce back from their 2-0 loss to Stars but have to keep McDavid off the board. Kings shutout the Oilers 5-0 in Jan & beat them 5-2 in Feb. They have the edge in the crease: Quick 2.45GA. Oilers on a btob. Talbot 3.09/Montoya 3.23GA. No goalies confirmed. Kings have a lot at stake so they should be motivated. Still reviewing the other gms…

Francisco Branco

Hey guys
Last night went great. What do you think of ducks, kings, jackets and tampa?

Syd

Thx G.
Ducks & Yotes are on a btob. Ducks play Oilers Sun and could go 2-0 but doubt they’ll get a quadruple shutout. Don’t know if any team has. Ducks have 4W & Yotes 4/5W.
Last 5gms: Ducks 11/Yotes 16GF Defensively, Ducks 6/ Yotes 8GA.
Miller is steady and Raanta’s numbers have improved for now. Like the Ducks chances but based on the GA, a possible Draw and ‘Under.’

Oliver Trigg

A good night last night, will post this quick and post other tips just now.

Flyers Reg/ML – Sens are just not good enough to win this even if Flyers are injured. Brassard is gone and few other Sens players are probably out the door, like the Rangers this is a team in transition with nothing to play for. Give me the hot Flyers.

Lendo

oh my days. did you watch that first period? 2-0 up and Sens back in it at 2-2.

Oliver Trigg

2-1 😉 Flyers still win. Didn’t watch no

Lendo

yeah WTF is up with betfair? if you hop on there, it shows at 2-2…

Oliver Trigg

Goal ruled offside.

Lendo

for sure, but Betfair did this with me and Anaheim the other night, you may remember. Buggy as F.

Lendo

2-2. knew it was coming. philly lost their edge.

massive – goal challenged, stays 2-1.

Jumper809

Still 1-2..

Syd

Good call!

Syd

Bruins/Leafs ‘TTG’ are set at 6 (bodog) but the Season series:
Leafs 3-2OT, 4-1 in Nov & Bruins 4-1 in Feb. Both teams can score but Rask 2.17/ Andersen 2.66GA.
Bruins 2.8 & Leafs 2.6 GA per gm in their last 5. Could be close but I favour ‘Under’ 6, or a possible ‘push’

SanDiegoBruins

Prolly a good play

Trailblaza05

Hey guys. I’m a long time lurker but this is my first post. I heard a very interesting trend you all might be interested in. Not sure if you like team overs but apparently anyone who plays the islanders usually hits the team over. I’m not sure of the exact stat but it’s somewhere around 20 of the last 24 games. Thanks for running this site!!!

timo likavčan

Going with:
Ducks reg
Kings reg
Pens reg
Flames ML

Marius Larsen

Same here!

timo likavčan

niiice, LETS DO IT ! 🙂

Marius Larsen

Flames leads after 16 sec, wow thats fast

Oliver Schütz

Leafs/Bruins & Panthers/Penguins to score 2 each? And what about Washington/Buffalo, Caps chance to win this time in reg? Thanks!”

Lendo

Firmly holding Washington on this. They’ve had a few blips recently but I still think they’re good enough to dust themselves off, home ice, and beat Buffalo.

Oliver Trigg

Careful, caps tend to be lazy, and Sabres are pretty decent on the road lately.

Syd

Agree 1000%

Calle Medin

Agree, I think they’ll bounce back with a good performance tonight.

Oliver Trigg

Right guys, already posted my Flyers pick, but there is far more to play. Lets make that good green.

Flames Reg (65%) – I’ve said before that Flames can’t buy a win at home, but they’re a good play in this spot. They REALLY need points if they’re going to make the playoffs, and although the same is true for the Avs, the Avs are without some key parts. Most notably key defensemen Johnson is out, and considering Avs road from they need a steady D right now. Avs have not done well against Calgary, losing their last 4 meetings, and are only 1-6 on 1 days rest. Calgary on the other hand are 6-1 v the Central, and 9-2 in a 3-4 situation and 13-3 in a 4-6 spot. The goaltending issues of Flames don’t concern me that much Gillies is not half bad and neither is Rittich. Flames have been bad at home, but that has to end now especially after a disappointing road trip. Honestly speaking, the Avs are missing too many parts here, and although both sides will be motivated it is Calgary who have home ice and historical success on their side.

Devils Reg/ML (60%/70%) – This is part of operation fade Isles. The Isles defensive issues are just to serious to warrant playing them, even despite the Devils home troubles. The Devils have lost their last two but before that were on a 4 game streak, which included a win over Tampa in Tampa. The Devils handed a 4-1 defeat to the Isles in Brooklyn in mid-Jan, and are the more consistent team here. This will be a hard fought met battle, with both sides knowing their playoff hopes are in the mix. I will fade the Isles out of pure principle- they can score but they sure can let them in too.

Jackets Reg (70%) – This is by no means a cheap play at evens for a reg win, and considering the Jackets performances it is definitely overpriced. That being said, the Hawks have lost their last 4 games in Columbus, and are downright awful (don’t let their wins distract you). Chicago has lost their last 5 on the road and 2-8 when playing on 0 days rest, and with the Jackets hanging not he precipice of being kicked out the playoffs by the Isles or Canes need a win and need it now; a tired and awful Hawks side should be perfect. In an even simpler approach, I would rather take Bob over any goalie the Hawks put in tonight. Jackets bounce back.

Jets ML/Reg (70%/60%) – This line defies logic, even considering the Stars play at home. The Stars have Lehtonen in net and they come up against a Jets side vying for top of the NHL. The Jets have won the last 6 meetings with the Stars, including a 4-1 win in Dallas in November. Jets are usually on a tail team for me when they play at home, but considering the Stars sloppy play and the Jets recent performances the Jets are a live dog here.

Penguins Reg/ML (70%/75%) – The Panthers have been superb lately, and have more rest coming into this. That being said, all good things must come to an end and they probably will here against the Pens. Simply put the Pens are looking like a SC contender again, and are tearing through teams, hence why my confidence in reg. The Pens game last night was not challenging at all, and they made short work of the Canes; although I doubt it will be that easy for the Pens tonight, the Pens have won the last 5 meetings against the Panthers and all in reg. The Panthers have had a nice winning stretch, but none of those teams they played were playing at the level the Pens are right now. Have a think on it yourself, the Panthers played and beat- Capitals, Flames, Canucks x2 , Oilers, Wings, Sabres and Islanders. All those teams are struggling or at least have their issues (like the Caps tendency to take the night off, and Flames home troubles). Pens are just too good not to back as a dog here.

Bolts Reg (90%) – Look at that confidence rating <—. Yes, I love the Bolts to hand down a beat down to the Habs tonight, and also love Bolts team total over 3.5 tonight. The Habs are a transition team right now, and like the Sens and Rangers are rolling over most games. Winning isn't on their mind right now, rebuilding is and a few of their players are likely out the door. Considering Niemi is in net, I just don't see anything other than a Bolts win. In a nutshell, even with Tampas slip ups lately, they are team you need to play extremely well against to beat. Having no motivation to win, a sh*t goalie in net and plenty of transfer speculation going through the camp is simply not going to get you through the game. Anything can happen, but I'll eat my hat if Bolts lose this.

Bruins ML/Reg (65%/60%) – The Bruins struggle against the Leafs, but I like their chances here with Matthews being out. Toronto barely overcame the Isles in their last game, and missing your #1 centre isn't going to help. Bruins have the defensive stability that the Leafs often lack. Bruins got their revenge with a 4-1 dominant win over the Leafs earlier this month, and I see them getting another game off them to even the series at 2-2. The under on this game is probably a good play too.

Ducks ML/Reg (75%/70%) – The Ducks caught a break with the Kings losing to the Stars, but they need to solidify their playoff spot, and honestly despite the Coyotes recent success they are no match for the Ducks. The Ducks have not conceded a goal in their last 2 games, and have won the last three meetings against the Yotes. The Ducks the team with more to play for, and in perfect shape to control the game.

Kings ML/Reg (78%/75%) – In the same way Ducks need to solidify their playoff spot, the Kings need to gain ground on the Ducks and get a spot. The Oilers more often crash and burn than win games, and in their last 2 games handed away a 2 goal lead twice. The Kings have won every home game against the Oilers going back to 2011, and I don't see any reason why that is going to end today.

– The picks from Pens onwards are my preferred picks, but I struggled to choose a POTD.

GL!

Beth

This is going to be fun?
??

Oliver Trigg

Hopefully keep the wins going +

TMLnation

3/4 Yesterday with all positive odds. Penguins reg, Wild reg and Jets reg hit. Only San Jose reg lost. Today’s plays Ducks reg, Lightning reg, and Canes reg. Leans Columbus reg, Kings reg

SanDiegoBruins

Same for me yesterday, nice night

Lendo

FML

That Philly goal was absolutely hilarious. RIP Craig Anderson. hahaha.

Oliver Trigg

What happened ?

Lendo

3 replies and none ended up here all due to needing review.
Nothing untoward was typed..

Sick of typing a response each time to explain. Nothing against you though.

Grab the replay from the NHL website dude.

Syd

Congrats on the win!

Lendo

I didn’t wager! what an idiot. Missed faceoff by about 12 minutes.

InkedFive0

Shoot. I should have parlayed it.. but I’ll take it! Thank you guys for the tips!!comment image

Lendo

Good work. I’m tailing Oliver and placing on Tampa.

InkedFive0

Great minds think alike!comment image

SanDiegoBruins

I played Flyers confidently and it paid off nicely!

For the rest of the day, my favorites plays are:

Pens ML
Bolts reg
Jets ML
Devils ML

Ducks should win but I have seen how ferocious Yotes can be especially at home so I’m staying away.

Caps are a “?” And you never know which team will show up. They could easily overlook Sabres who love to play spoiler.

Canes and Red Wings are two teams headed nowhere and no clear side.

Blackhawks are funny: sometimes they don’t show up and other times they explode. CBJ can’t seem to find net but both teams shoot A LOT. I can’t pick a side but I like over on shots for both teams

Kings and Oilers is a head scratcher. Kings have a stout defense but are struggling to find goals. I might watch a few minutes and bet this one live depending on who comes to play.

Even without Matthews the Leafs are a potent team. They are a lot like the Bruins but weaker on D. At home Leafs are really tough especially against a division rival and another Original Six. Bruins always struggle in TO so I’m staying away. I will watch the game and cheer for Bs but no bets for me.

GLTA SDB

Syd

I’ll be cheering for the Leafs:)
Mathews will be missed but you’re right, Leafs have 4 players with 20+ goals and lots of secondary scoring. I agree this one is too hard to call but the stats favour ‘Under’
Think the Kings will show up. Oilers rank 27th GA (3.25) and Talbot (confirmed) 3.08GA. If the Kings score 3 on Talbot, limit the Oilers to one, max 2 goals, add an empty netter, It’s all over.
Like you, I wouldn’t even bother with the Caps. Too unpredictable. Congrats on the Flyers win. GL tonight!

Oliver Schütz

Kings got to win this forgsake, did put them on last of ten… half of them green already, expt Ducks 0-1 down atm

SanDiegoBruins

Great game and great finish by Leafs

Lendo

So pissed i missed Philly. Damn it.

Filtering through the other matchups.. Pens ML @ 1.86 looks decent.

Tampa doesn’t seem to offer such good odds. 1.57 ML, 1.86 ML.

Oliver Trigg

Tampa Reg. Don’t both looking at ML.

Syd

Even though both have exchanged wins Bolts 3-1 in Dec & Habs 2-1SO, the this game is for the Bolts to win if they show up.

Oliver Trigg

Agreed.

Oliver Trigg

Man I’m so pissed I missed Flames. I got the start time wrong. By the time I saw it it was already 2-1

Lendo

i know, right? I caught Calgary late too. Oh well, live and learn.

Got a few sweet looking placed right now.

Pens/Bolts/Caps first to score…0.5u = £25.16 winnings

Bolts reg. 2u (NIEMI starts for Habs. Please dear lord, Bolts should lay the smack down early on this one.)

Pens reg. 1u (cannot hide the fact that Pitt are shit hot right now)

Whats your NBA brain telling you on Boston/Portland double?

Lendo

Well thats f*cked. FLA 1-0.

Lendo

1st team to score bets – treble, 0.5u @ 5.03

Lightning
Caps
Pens

Mark

guys what about Stars Jets…. Jets killed Blues yesterday but what about Jets and their away games are they really able to beat Stars at home???

Oliver Trigg

Dominated the Stars, and Stars have been in iffy form. Not my favourite play, but Jets I think are the pick.

Mark

Hutchinson in net for Jets still OK?

Oliver Trigg

Lehtonen for Stars. I would take Jets but not large

Lendo

Live Bet: Flames to score 5th goal @ 2.00

Lendo

GIVE ME THAT MONEY ON A PLATE $$$$ (…half a unit haha).

Tony Le

Flame to scores 6th goal 2.95 for 1 u)

Mark

what about over-under games where do u expect solid over? 🙂

Mark

Devils Isles maybe ?

Syd

For those of you tracking the starting lineups for the Habs, Plekanec is a healthy scratch…in other words, a possible trade by Monday.

Lendo

True – expecting a couple of picks this summer and next year too in exchange. Unless they got a very good deal lined up in a player swap.

Lendo

Caught the second and third period in Calgary/Avs. Gillies looked solid.

Oliver Trigg

He isn’t bad at all

Lendo

Managed to get 1.90 for Tampa in Reg, boosted from 1.83.

Not going to complain about that one. 2units.

Edit:

Pens in reg, boosted 2.25 to 2.33. 1unit.

InkedFive0

I’m with you Lendo!!comment image

Lendo

Jesus Christ, Inky. 510 USD…. Best of luck!

Calle Medin

Capitals and Lightning will be my tips tonight – 2u. Made some good money on Flames earlier this evening.

Lendo

CAPS 1-0 already.

Toronto made some line changes to accomodate losing Auston Matthews. Marner moves up a line. Leafs still looking strong.

Marius Larsen

Anyone placed a fun bet on Germany against the OAR?

Oliver Trigg

Could someone do some gypsy magic to get Tampa to wake up?

Beth

That’s what they needed!! Good vibes ?

Oliver Trigg

Unfortunately my money was on a regulation win 🙁 🙁 so no cash for me. Took a hit.

Beth

Oh shoot!!!
Mine was ML
I did ok
Next time I’ll cheer sooner 🙂

InkedFive0

God what a game! The bolts should have closed it in OT!

InkedFive0

Not a bad two days!!! Thank you all for your input and tips!!! Graeme, Scott, Oliver, SDB and everyone else who has had great input! I wish I knew you all and could buy y’all a few drinks!!!comment image

InkedFive0

Wow. This Kings game is ending CRAZY!!

Oliver Schütz
