It was a good day yesterday with the betting tips. And a really bloody fun day.

It started off well with the Over 5.5 goals in the Tampa/Flyers game. That one went Over during the 2nd period which was great.

We had Over 5.5 in the Habs/Leafs game and after 1 period there were 5 goals so that was also bloody nice! The Habs won that one 5-3 in what was a great contest.

We also had Over 5.5 in the Rangers/Jackets game and with 4 goals in the 1st period that was a nice relaxing one to watch and go over. The Rangers had a massive 3rd period turn around to go from 4-2 down to winning 5-4. Awesome game.

Hopefully you caught our update for the Wild game – advising that with Kuemper not in net it was a no bet. It’s one reason that when odds are the same I’ll always place my bet at Bet365 (Americans: We recommend http://www.bovada.lv – they have the ability to cash out your bet and in that instance I only lost a couple of bucks on it. Such a great feature especially with hockey and late team news etc.

It’s an odd day today and most of what I’m liking is based more on feeling than anything else.

I think the Bruins will beat the Hurricanes today. No real justification for it but if Rask is in net I like them continuing from yesterdays form.

I also like the Hawks to beat the Preds. The way the Hawks are playing at the moment they really shouldn’t win that one but again just a strong feeling.

I also think Flyers/Jackets goes over.

Penguins vs Lightning: This is one where boy do the stats etc not back it up or even come close to it so it’s hard to justify it – but I’m taking the Tampa Bay Lightning to win.

I’m basing it purely on the break and the price of this one. Penguins have had a rough time of it so far this year coming off breaks. There’s not a big enough sample size but they do seem a bit rusty. I’d like to think after Tampas slip up yesterday where they just got too confident and then got shell shocked that they won’t be complacent.

I just feel there’s value here but it’s a risky bet.

Anyway that’s it for today.

Today’s bets:
CAR-BOS: Under 5 goals
PIT-TBL: Pittsburgh in regulation
CBJ-PHI: Over 5.5 goals
CHI-NSH: Under 5 goals
OTT-EDM: Ottawa under 2.5 goals
ANA-MIN: Minnesota over 2.5 goals
Any thoughts?

Pitt has been off for 8 days. I know TB is bad right now.


I just can’t see TB winning. Other bets for this match have pretty bad odds


Graeme, with all respect I just can’t buy the Bolts beating the Pens. First, Bolts are a mess right now. Defensively they are brutal, allowing 16 goals in the past three games. Goaltending has been terrible and there’s a good chance an AHL goalie will be in net today. Veterans Boyle, Coburn and Brown are out. And they are playing b2b after a demoralizing loss against the league’s best players who are well rested. Nope, can’t see Bolts winning today. I’m taking Pens puckline.

However, the o/u is interesting. My site has it at 6 which considering the way Bolts give up goals and the Pens score goals is not unreasonable. Small bet on over.

I like the odds on the Flyers to beat CBJ. Philly could be flying high after defeating hapless Bolts and CBJ is playing third game in four nights and has to be tired physically and emotionally. CBJ gave NYR a tough game and almost pulled it out, but that loss has to be deflating and those guys are going to be dragging their asses to the rink today. Flyers ML

Canes are going to beat Bs today. Bs are 1-6 in b2b games and either a tired Rask or a terrible McIntyre is in net today. Canes are pesky as hell and bring it every game. In front of their fans against a weary Bs team–I like them to win. ML, in reg and score over 2.5

Preds-BH – betting this game is like playing bingo, no thanks.

Sens find a way to win tonight vs Oilers. Oilers are on back end of grueling four game road trip where they’ve already gotten four points. I think this is what they call a scheduled loss. Gustavsson is in net and he has been pretty bad. Last time he played on 12/8 he got lit up by Flyers for six goals. Sens need a win badly and will be up for this one in front of their own fans. Sens Puckline and regulation wouldn’t be bad bets either.

Wild-Ducks – hard to say about this one. Wild are a good team, but they are b2b and those west coast road trips are tough especially when you’re at the end of them. Plus, the Ducks are playing really well and are rested. I like the Ducks and the over.

Clemson +6 1/2
Miami +11
Packers -4 1/2



6-0 yesterday!!

Main tips:
Jackets Vs Rangers over 5 ✅
Leafs Vs Habs over 5.5 ✅

Goal by Crosby for Pens ‼️

Any thoughts??



Hi well done last night, i also won £400 so happy days. I live in uk and only recently started watching and betting hockey, have taken a liking to the caps. I follow this page and compare with tips on ‘olbg’ website to choose my selections and have profited well compared to my footy accas etc.

I was just wondering what bookmaker you use to bet on goalscorers?

Cheers and good luck tonight!


I use NordicBet as a bookmaker, because they have a lot of choice to bet on (goalscorers,assist and more), but unfortunately not so good odds compared to other bookmakers.

Amazing night in which I went 6-0! Today I have:

> Hurricanes to win (OT/SO)
> Pens in regulation
> Senators to win (SO/OT)

Henry Del Valle Sr.

I have all except Pens. With 8 days off I can’t trust them, even though TB is horrid right now. They’re defense looks very disinterested in putting a body on someone.

Henry Del Valle Sr.

Great job, JohnnyH! I went 2-1. I have been having so many problems with Over/Unders this season.

Norbert Buzási

Pens are looking too obvious. They should get the easy win, even with -1.5. I don’t like when games are so “obvious” in the NHL.

Arto Reinikainen

Pens -1.5
Bruins @ Canes OT
Flyers in reg and over 5.5 goals (as a single bet)
Predators -1.5
Senators -1.5
Ducks in regulation

GL !


Tonight I will take,

Sens ML @ 1.840

January: 2/4 & -0.149u
