Our sincere apologies to anyone who didn’t receive the tips email until 8pm. Not sure why this is happening and we are looking into an alternative.
In the meantime please note we always have the tips posted by 12pm EST at the latest the day of.

Another night with only one tip and it was another night where we went 1-0.

We went with the Maple Leafs vs Capitals game to go over 6.5. It was a close one for us here but in the end it was the Caps winning 4-3 hitting 7 goals for us and the over.

The Jackets beat the Stars 3-2 which was the 4th loss in a row for the Stars. Corey Perry made his season debut for the Stars in this one.

The Oilers beat the Flyers 6-3 and McDavid had a monster night. He had 5 points becoming just the 2nd player in Oilers history to have 17 points through the first 7 games of a season joining Gretzky who did it 5 times during the 80’s.

After their shitty start to the season the Sharks have now won 3 in a row thanks to Kanes hat trick in their 5-2 win against the Hurricanes.

The Ducks beat the Sabres 5-2. For the Sabres this was their first loss in regulation this season. I’m curious to see how they respond going forward.

For our poll yesterday we asked which game would be the lowest scoring of the night. It was a tie as the Avalanche vs Penguins and Stars vs Blue Jackets games both hit 5 goals. The Stars – Jackets game came in 2nd with 30% of the vote, the Avs – Pens came in 5th with 4% of the vote. The Sabres vs Ducks game was the #1 choice with 39%.

A good Thursday for us with 9 games scheduled. I was going to take the Sabres against the Kings but with them taking their first loss in regulation and having to play the next day put me off. I need to see how they respond now. Are they a team that are as good as their record suggests or are they just incredibly lucky and will now show their true identity.

Senators vs Golden Knights Betting Tips:

The Sens are off to a rough start and that was expected. But with the Sens they seem to respond in games against tough teams. Thats not to say that they win these games but they seem to have a stronger effort.

The Knights are off to an inconsistent start. They’re 4-3 and can’t afford to lose a game to a team like the Sens. They looked like garbage in their last game, a 5-2 loss to the Predators, and management and fans expect more from them so heads are going to role sooner or later if they can’t fix this.

With the Sens able to play better against strong teams and the Knights looking to get back on track, I like this to be a high scoring game.
