Was nice to see a night of hockey where the results were much more normal than they were on Monday.  But it figures that this would happen on a night where we took no tips.

The Canadiens managed to beat the Sens 3-1 which was nice to see after Montreal lost the last two games against the Sens.

The Lightning beat the Stars which we thought would happen but the Stars home record had us worried.  We also thought that the Islanders would win against the Devils which they did but the Devils had fans in the seats for the first time in almost a year and we were nervous about how the Devils would react.

Liked the Blue Jackets to beat the Red Wings but the Jackets came into this game having lost 5 in a row.  Also liked the Flyers vs Penguins game to go over, which it did when the Penguins won 5-2, but we had no confidence in making that a tip.

So despite having no tips our leans were good so it was nice seeing that but it would have been much nicer had we went with a couple of them.

For tonight we have 6 games scheduled.  I’ll go over each game and see if anything jumps out at us.

March 3rd, 2021 NHL Betting Tips

Capitals vs Bruins

Should be a great game between two of the top teams in the East Divison.   They have played twice this season with the Capitals winning the first game 4-3 in overtime and the Bruins winning the second game 5-3.

On the year they both average at least 3 GPG.  The last 3 games for the Caps had totals of; 5, 7 and 7.  The last 4 games for the Bruins had totals of; 5, 8, 9 and 10.

Based on previous results I think there is enough there for me to back Over in this game.

Over 6 incl OT/SO

Canada: 1.92 Odds at Pinnacle Sports
USA: -105 Odds at BetOnline
Everyone Else: 1.92 Odds at Pinnacle Sports

(Odds correct as of 2021/03/03 9:24:48 AM EST but are subject to change.)

Leafs vs Oilers

This was another game where I wanted to take the over.  But this is the 3rd game in a row for these teams and the first two stayed under with the Leafs winning both 4-0 and 3-0. 

Blues vs Ducks

The Blues should win this game but their last 3 games have been decided by a single goal and to get any value we would need to take the Blues in at least regulation.  No confidence in that even against a Ducks team who have lost 7 in a row

Wild vs Knights

This is a close game to call.  The Knights are 9-2-1 at home and the Wild are 7-3-1 on the road.  Too close to call

Coyotes vs Kings

Would lean towards the Kings here but the Coyotes will be looking to get their 4th straight road win.

Avalanche vs Sharks

Would like to think the Avs win this one but they are without Makar, Byram and others so too many questions about this game to make it a tip.
