It was a nice and easy winning night last night with the Bruins to win as they thumped the Rangers 6-1.

We also won with our AHL & WHL Tips last night.

The Rangers took the lead in that game but then the Bruins just came back HARD. It was a good performance from the Bruins although it could have been a lot different – Khudobin made some key saves in the 1st to stop the Rangers.

It’s amazing with their form that the Bruins aren’t the top team in the East yet but the big question will be is if they can bring their form into the playoffs. Should be interesting. With the way they’re winning games at the moment and the methods used I think they’ve got what it takes to go all the way.

Let’s get to tonights tips:

Flames vs Devils Betting Tips:

Speaking of potential Stanley Cup finalists, I honestly think the Flames could be there if they could get their home form sorted out. And I think they’re getting there – they might just blossom and figure it out in the playoffs.

They’re on the road and their road form is excellent. Of course we can’t just base it on that. Devils are fairly average at home and while they got two big Ws over the Pens & Flyers before that they lost to the Preds & Wings.

I was really impressed with the Flames victory over the Blackhawks at the United Center. Hawks are a mess but it’s still a tough place to go especially when playing a team for the 2nd time in 3 days who will be out for revenge.

Devils can be a feisty team on the bounce back but that was a BAD loss against the Senators and I think their confidence will be shot.

It’s a tight one but we like Flames to win incl OT/SO.

Sabres vs Islanders Betting Tips:

The price is right on this one to take the Islanders. Obviously they can be a mess of a team but their road form has been fairly solid and Lehner is generally below average against the Islanders.

The over is very tempting here however the Sabres offense is never fun to count on for something like that. Yeah they came to life against the Ducks but you look at their stats this season and they just can’t seem to carry that goalscoring from game to game on a regular basis.

Islanders to win incl OT/SO

Canada: 1.94 Odds at BetOnline..
USA: -108 Odds at BetOnline...
Everyone Else: 1.94 Odds at BetOnline..

(Odds correct as of 2018/02/08 12:28:41 PM EST but are subject to change.)

Wild vs Coyotes Betting Tips:

I mean this just ticks all the boxes doesn’t it? One of the best home teams in the NHL versus the worst team in the NHL. Not much to really analyze about this one. If Coyotes win or take it to hockey so be it – that’s hockey.

Wild in Regulation

Canada: 1.72 Odds at 888 Sports.
USA: -140 Odds at BetOnline..
Everyone Else: 1.72 Odds at 888 Sports.

(Odds correct as of 2018/02/08 12:28:41 PM EST but are subject to change.)

Unit/Confidence Betting Tips:

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

Flames – 1u.
Islanders – 1u.
Wild – 2u.
Lightning/Canucks Over 5.5 – 0.5u: This is more my pick – Scott wasn’t a big fan hence 0.5u. I generally like Canucks on the road and with Tampa D struggling plus first game home after awhile – could be an interesting one.

No picks for OHL, WHL AHL?

Graeme (BetNHL.ca)

No. Only OHL action today and system doesn’t like anything.


Ok thanks

John UduakD

your view on lighting on regulation

Graeme (BetNHL.ca)

Scott liked them a lot but the price was too short and I’ve got a few concerns about them to be betting at that price.


No games in the AHL or WHL tonight. The OHL site gives a statistical breakdown of the matches if you’re interested in betting.


Thank you. Will have a look. At first glance I like North Bay Battalion, Soo Greyhounds and Owrn Sound


No probs. It’s obvious NB (53 pts) are heavy favs vs Flint (36 pts) but in Jan Flint beat:
Soo (89 pts)
Sarnia (76pts)
Saginaw (56pts)
Windsor (50pts)
The Soo are heavy favs vs the Icedogs tonight but the Dogs are 2nd in their division with (59 pts) You may not see an upset tonight, but always possible:)!


You are very right anything is possible. I hope the dogs don’t bark tonight


Flames are light years far away from being Lord Stanley Cup finalists with all due respect.

Oliver Trigg

Completely with you on that.

Maikel Vd Ven

I have a question for you guys.
At the olympics the best players dont play with there country i guess? Because the still play at the nhl, why is that? Or is it the same as football most youngsters with some older guys?

On topic.
Todays picks. Flames preds tamba and wilds.
Gl everybody

Graeme (BetNHL.ca)
Maikel Vd Ven

Thank you ?

Graeme (BetNHL.ca)

Also Scott forgot to add it in the tips yesterday and I forgot it today – but recommended 2u bet on Russia to win the gold in the Olympic mens. Just such a stacked team it’s theirs to lose.

Maikel Vd Ven

Canada or usa no chance? Because the odds are Nice.

Tatu Kulmala

The odds are nice, yes, but consider the fact that the Olympics are been played mostly by players who are playing in Europe. I don’t think there will be a chance for US or Canada with those rosters.

Maikel Vd Ven

Ok, thank you for the information Man!

Arto Reinikainen

Yeah i agree, and you would think that Russia plays with a chip on their shoulder considering everything that’s been happening around the nation lately.

Best team having a lot to prove should be a deadly combo..


Knights ML
Bolts PL
Wilds PL
Bolts&Wilds reg parlay
Flames ML
Blues reg

Leans: Preds, Isles, Flyers, Stars

Johnny Hockey

> Isles ML

Thanks G.
Like the Bolts in Reg or PL.
Bruins are 1 point behind them with 1 game in hand. The Bolts need this game. They beat the Canucks 4-2 last Sat and ‘nucks’ didn’t play the Panthers with any intensity. Nilsson (3.39 GA) and Vasilevskiy (2.28GA) are confirmed (dailyfaceoff)
Totally agree Wild will beat the Coyotes. Good luck tonight!


Sabres, Devils, Blues and VGK with 1u;
Zajac, Coyle, Stastny and Haula with 0.5u.


I would put devils to win in regulation, wild in regulation and over 5.5 goals in sabres Islanders


I’m looking at the Devils !

Oliver Trigg

Have to be quick as I’m off to the gym, but have 4 plays today-

POTD – Wild Reg/Puckline (90%/80%)- Call me cocky to put such a high confidence rating on this pick, but Wild have enough to get it done. Minnesota are in no position to relax in the central, and could easily lose their playoff spot if they don’t keep racking up the wins. Fortunately they’re doing just that at home, and even away with a 6-2 smashing of the blues on the road. This side has lost just 5 home games all season, is fully healthy and have won 8 of their last 10 games by a 2 goal margin or more. That’s why I’m also picking the puckline. The Coyotes come into this on the end of another losing streak having dropped their last 4 games and been outscored 16-4 in that time. Wild have won 4 of the last 5 to the Coyotes, and I don’t see anything other than strong wild victory tonight. Drink that juice and take wild.

Preds Reg- (65%) – The Sens are 2-10 against the West and 0-6 against the Central. The Preds may be on an end of back to back, but they’ve won their last 4 back to back games outscoring their opponents 16-5 in those games. More than anything this is a fade of the Sens. They’ve got some lucky wins lately, but are coming up against a real play-off contender in the Preds. I expect the Preds to be fired up after their loss to the Leafs on penalties, and wouldn’t be surprised to see them roll over the Sens. There’s no value in the ML, but if Preds win this I think they win it in reg and I would be surprised to see anything different.

I like Vegas and may take them later, and also lean Blues, Stars, Flyers, Flames, Islanders and bolts but I’m not playing any of those right now. For value considerations and because I’m also on the NCAAB and NBA.

Nba plays –

Portland-3.5 – The trailblazers have been superb at home lately, having won their last 8 and have won the last 9 at home to the Hornets. Portland can’t slow down now, and after a bad road trip will be looking to pick up the pieces. 8 of the last 10 home meetings Portland have covered the spread, so I’ll take the low number.

Okc-3 – The Lakers have been really good at home, and even managed an away win against the Thunder 5 days back. However, the Thunder just pounded the Warriors, and I see them looking for blood here. Again the spread is small, and as the Lakers just traded Jordan Clarkson their scoring is going to be affected. OKC should have no problem covering with their potential.


I like your puck picks bud and I’m not being sarcastic ??


I’m working on 3, I really want to nail these as I hate going into the weekend down.

Oliver Trigg

Today has a lot of opportunity, so here’s hoping.

Alexander Rolli Pregelj

Lakers traded earlier clarkson and nance jr. which favors this bet even more 🙂
on the other hand portland is a risky bet especially a hc
i would rather bet +21.5 mccollum

Oliver Trigg

I’ll tail you on McCollum

Alexander Rolli Pregelj

Good and if you’re ballsy enough put a -6.5 hc on okc, okc found their mojo just in time and lakers just suck, lonzo is out, clarkson and nance were traded earlier to cleveland and others are just dreadful

Alexander Rolli Pregelj

oh and forgot bet on raptors as well, find a suitable hc u like and bet.
Porzingis out, Kanter out
+ if u have valanciunas available put him over sadly i didnt have him so i bet +23.5 derozan


good luck you cocky bastard

Geir Aage R Jensen

Blues and Flames win Reg


Any feel for St loo and under ? Close to a trigger pull for me.


So many options, really want to get 3 chicken dinners outa this card.

Deff going with Nash reg +105
Bolts Nucks Over -125
Chico Dalla Un 6 – 115

With so many games I’ll add 1 more that as I like to say is as close to a lock you’ll find.

Thomas Andersen

I betted on Dałlas the only fragile on a 10 Game combination

Janis Peics

Hi, there.
Lots of good picks tonight, but I’m betting on those three in order of confidence (and value):
1. Wild beating Coyotes by 2+ goals. Oliver just described why, so I don’t have to repeat 🙂
2. Preds beating Sens in reg because of the good shape they’re on. Preds are leading Western Conference in last 10 games, while Senators are last on Eastern in those same last 10 games.
3. Flames to beat Devils incl. OT. They really need those points to keep fighting for playoffs and have been really good road team so far. This might be a tight one, but value on Flames is good enough.

Yesterday got my parlay of the year – Kings reg + Bruins reg + Leafs/Preds draw. Good luck tonight.


Peičš, ko tu te pazaudējis? 😀


I only have one sharp bet tonight: Preds in regulation. Sens are without Stone, Brossard and that POS, pussy Burrows. They only have 11 forwards and 7 D on bench. Anderson is a dismal 9-9-3 with a 3.36 GAA and .897 SV% at home. Preds are feeling need to get 2 pts after an OT loss to Leafs last night. They’ll be ready to play and should make short work of a depleted — physically and mentally — Sens team


Night picks,

Will take Flames for sure because of their away performance. Flames win.
I think Montreal ll keep winning tonight as well. Hopefully we can say that they finally woke up still fight for the playoffs allthough they have not much chance. Montreal win.
Blues will definitely win tonight. Its my expectation. They are better than avs in any sense. Blues win.
Blackhawks. Night of the Kane hopefully. I go with Blackhawks win and Kane scores.
I think Sharks will win against knights. Sharks are still good and tough in such an important games. Most of you afraid to bet against knights but I do it. Very clearly put my moneys on Sharks win.

I hope you winning night mates.

Good luck!

Juri Safoshin

Bolts, Wild, Vegas took all -1.5, nice odds.

Predators and Flames regulation win, odds ok for me.

Will take some Nba markets, but decide later.



Main bets:
Wilds reg, PL
Bolts reg, PL
Blues reg
Preds reg

Small bets:
Flyers reg
Knights reg

Leans: Isles, Stars, Devils


Convince me on St lo in reg need 1 more has to be a winner.

Everything bags a St loo bounce back to a team they own that isn’t that special on the road playing a team that loves playing well at home.


How’s your Bolts game going ??

I need to stop over thinking and just go with what makes sense. I tried to play it safe, shoulda took PL always get empty net if close game.

Fingers crossed Van can score 1 and Tampa gets me 1 more.


I actually even took Bolts -2,5, so I am more than happy 🙂




good evening all

I’m back in the game. Hope all of you are well.

I have sifted through the comments below and I’m a little stuck for choice. I’m not really one to bet on NBA but i like to take all advice.

OKC -3.5 odds are held at 1.90… is this worth snapping up?

Additionally I tend to agree with Minnesota to beat Arizona but I can’t find good value on it. Regulation time is sitting at around 1.70 for me.

Tony Le

Good day my fellow gamblers
Lets hope we dont see any upset today
My crazy parlays
Nash , o , tam , o , min ,o all ml 1 u
Col , chi , cal , nash , buf all reg 0.05 u
Lets win big money

Arto Reinikainen






No goal til after 9 59 1st p San – Vegas


Maybe live bet some more if this hits. Chico Dalla isn’t staying under 6 so try my luck on this game live wager.


Knights saved the night, at least for me, and its definitely not the first time they have done that… 😀

Juri Safoshin

Great for me as well, took -1.5 )))


Luckily, they managed to make up for Wilds.

Juri Safoshin

I even though to take Wild -2.5 before )))


I took both Wilds and Bolts -2,5, it worked for Bolts so it was kind of worth it…

Juri Safoshin

Yep, better odds do the work.
