3 games yesterday and no tips and after seeing the results I’m glad we avoided.

The Coyotes beat the Devils 4-1.   The Devils outshot the Coyotes 12-1 in the 1st and 36-17 overall.

The Rangers beat the Leafs 6-3.  I wanted to take the Leafs but stayed away as the Rangers are a good home team.  Glad I did.  Matthews had his road goal streak stopped at 10 games although he scored one but it went in off of his skate so it got called back.

The final game was the Avalanche against the Ducks and the Avs won 2-0.  Francouz picked up his 2nd career shutout for the Avs. 

A busy night of hockey for us with 9 games scheduled.

Stars vs Sabres Betting Tips:

The Stars are a much better team when they are at home so right away it makes this game tough to call.  The Sabres have been bad all season and also have 13 players out.

The Stars have lost 3 in a row and are on the road where they have gone 4-12-1 this season.   The Sabres are 2-5-3 over their last 10 and 6-11-3 at home.

With the Stars bad on the road I still can’t back them despite the fact they are playing the Sabres.

Caps vs Bruins Betting Tips:

The Bruins are coming into this game after getting pounded by the Canes 7-1.  That was their biggest loss of the season.

The Caps are coming in after winning 4-3 in overtime against the Jets.  That was their first win in the 5 minute overtime period (not shootout) this season so that will give them a boost.

Both teams have had some high scoring games recently with the Caps last 6 having totals of; 7, 6, 2, 10, 5 and 6.  The Bruins last 6; 8, 7, 5, 6, 10 and 7.

They last played each other on January 10th and it was a 7-3 Bruins win.

Tough to call a winner so I’m going with the over as the stats point to that being a safe play.

Sens vs Penguins Betting Tips:

The Sens have struggled all year.  They have only 24 points this season and are ahead of only the Canadiens in the East.

The Penguins are at home where they are looking to extend their win streak in Pittsburgh to 6 games.

The Pens are the heavy favorites and for good reason.  They are a much better team then the Sens.   The Sens have some wins against tough teams this season which has me worried about betting against them here.  They have beat the Pens, Leafs, Lightning, Hurricanes, Avalanche and the Panthers.  They have only 11 wins on the year and those 6 mentioned above are crazy.  I’m skipping

Jackets vs Flyers Betting Tips:

The Flyers are looking to avoid their 2nd 10 game losing streak of the season.   They are favored to win here and I have no idea why.

The Jackets are slumping going 3-7-0 in last 10 and are on the road where they have gone 6-12-0.  The Flyers are at home where they have gone 6-8-4.

I’m avoiding all Flyers games until they get their shit together.

Jets vs Predators Betting Tips:

The Predators are slumping now dropping their last 4 games and in doing so now find themselves in 3rd in the Central Divison.

The Jets are still dealing with injuries to some good players with Wheels, Ehlers, Dillon and Stastny among them.

The Preds need to snap out of this funk as the Wild are 4 points behind them with 6 fewer games played.

Easy skip here with the Preds recent play and the Jets banged up.

Panthers vs Oilers Betting Tips:

I learned in their last game that the Panthers aren’t a road team.  The Oilers have lost 6 in a row so it would look like s spot for the Panthers to pick up a rare road win.

But I’m skipping this as a visiting Panthers team gives zero confidence.

Avalanche vs Kings Betting Tips:

The Kings had won 4 in a row but now lost their last 2 giving up 6 in each loss.

The Avalanche played last night, and won, but had to make only a 45 minute drive for this game.  They have won 4 in a row and have gone 9-0-1 over their last 10.

The Kings are still without Kempe which will not make this game any easier.  I have to ride the Avalanche in this game.

Avalanche win in regulation

Canada: 1.82 Odds at Sports Interaction
USA: -125 Odds at BetOnline.
Everyone Else: 1.76 Odds at Bet365 (Americans: We recommend http://www.bovada.lv

(Odds correct as of 2022/01/20 10:00:45 AM EST but are subject to change.)

Canadiens vs Knights Betting Tips:

The odds for the Knights make this an easy skip for me.  Even the Knights -1.5 is below 1.70.  A Knights -2.5 is only 2.25 odds so nothing here for me.

Sharks vs Kraken Betting Tips:

The Sharks are probably still buzzing after Meier scored 5 times in their last game.  The Kraken snapped their losing streak at 9 games when they beat the Hawks in a shootout.   It was the first win for the Kraken since December 14th when they beat the Sharks.

I would lean towards a Sharks win but with the Kraken ending their losing skid and already having beat the Sharks they may show up looking like a different team here.

Over 5.5: Caps/Bruins and Philly/Columbus.

So many teams are underperforming this season; COVID, post-COVID and schedule disruptions are really doing a crazy number on teams, can’t see much in today’s matchups.
