It was a perfect night for us in the betting tips. Scott tipped the Over and Graeme tipped the Senators and both came in.

Speaking of perfect – how about those Ottawa Senators? Holy hell. The Ottawa Senators came out in style and blew the Pittsburgh Penguins away. It was 4-0 at the end of the 1st period and they came out 5-1 winners.

It was quite entertaining seeing the reaction of Penguins fans to this game. The first two goals they were yelling about lucky bounces and flukes and so on. But by the end of that 1st period they just had their head in their hands wondering what was going on.

Going to be a very interesting Game 4 and the media will be happy – they’ve got something to fill up the pages as they debate Murray vs Fleury. Probably should be Fleury but who knows.

You can’t count the Penguins out though. They got spanked by the Capitals yet still won the series. The Oilers got spanked by the Sharks but won their series – same for the Ducks.

The big question – for the first time in the playoffs, will the Ottawa Senators be favourites? They’re favourites to win the series now. If you like the Penguins this is a good price to double down.

Ducks vs Predators Game 4 Betting Tips:

Scott: Game 3 was a close one.  It was tied at 1 and it looked like it was going to go to OT. But with under 3 minutes left Josi scored for the Preds who held on for the 2-1 win.  The Preds now have a 2-1 series lead.

Despite taking the loss,  Ducks goalie Gibson has been playing well.  He made 38 saves in the loss in game 3, 30 in game 2 and 43 in game 1.

The Preds have now won 10 straight home playoff games so it would seem like this is the Preds game to win and the sportsbooks must agree as the odds for a Preds win is around 1.70.

But something has me a little nervous about that.  They have a great shot at winning but I’m going to go with a player prop instead.

The Preds defensemen have been a major part of the teams success.  Josi has gotten 10 points in the 13 games in this postseason including a goal and an assist in this series.

Roman Josi to register a point for 1.90 odds at 888 Sports. For Americans look at Bovada for props.

Graeme: The Ducks will need a much better performance in this game. We know they have it in them – but it’s got to be hard after the way the Predators dictated play the last time.

The Ducks have won both Game 4s on the road so far in the playoffs – can they continue this trend?

I think for the Ducks to win they need a performance like in Game 2. They need to come out offensive and get as many shots on net as possible. Their offense was weak in Game 3 but they’ve came up time and time again when needed in the playoffs.

I’m not sure if they have what it takes to win – but I have to assume they’ll be taking risks as they don’t want to go down 3-1.

I’m on Over 5 Goals.
