We took the day off from our tips yesterday, although my OHL system won and went 7-1 for the season for anyone who follows that. Good start for that although a lot of low priced games.

It was for the best that we stayed away as a lot of games we were concerned about we were right to be. The Flyers losing to the Predators for example, or the Jackets losing to Tampa.

The Oilers got a big win in overtime against the Blackhawks. Wonder if they can ride that momentum now.

Quieter night tonight with 6 games which is my personal favourite amount of games. Allows us to fully analyze every game but NOT overthink it.

I REALLY wanted to take the Habs tonight. Watching their last game I just saw enough positives to where I feel “Yep, they’re going to turn the corner” and I think they beat the Ducks tonight. However considering their performances this season, 2.00 odds is just not enough for me.

With that let’s get to the betting tips:

Capitals vs Red Wings Betting Tips:

Last Friday, the Capitals were in a similar position. 2 game losing streak and on the road.

I’d said last week that I really wanted to take the Capitals in that game. They’re a team that had never lost more than 2 in a row last season, and the prior season only lost 3 or more in a row once.

I regretted not making that one a tip last week – the Devils performances were good enough to scare me away.

The Capitals are one of those teams who – how can I put this – it doesn’t really matter who their opposition are for the most part. They play their game and they win. Simple as that.

Wings actually beat the Capitals last season in their most recent game. However I have to think the Caps come out here and do the business like only they can.

In saying that it’s hard to write off Detroit. They had a couple of tough losses against the Leafs and Wings but they’ve shown a lot of fight in every game.

But I have to believe the Capitals win this in a controlling fashion. The odds for OT/SO are good enough if you want that but I’ll go with the extra risk of Capitals in regulation.

Sharks vs Devils Betting Tips:

This ones the opposite of the Habs game – the Devils odds are so nice that I can’t help but take them.

Sharks are 2-3 this season after 5 home games and it’s their first game on the road. The yweren’t amazing on the road last season at 20-18-3. Their only 2 wins thus far are over the Sabres and Habs.

The Devils are currently top of the Metro and deserve to be there with some excellent performances. This is a team thats really enjoying their hockey. Kinkaid is in net for the Devils.

It has its issues for sure. The Sharks D will be a tough matchup for the Devils offense and could neuteur them. Devils on a B2B after OT so their fast offense, already possibly struggling against the mobile Sharks, could have a hard night. And I must admit I’m a tad concerned about the odds being so high. Like Vegas just inviting me to bet on them.

Oh well – “You Miss 100% of the Shots You Don’t Take – Wayne Gretzky” – Michael Scott.

OHL / WHL / AHL / KHL Betting Tips:

(All below systems are based mainly on mathematics and statistics with very little human input and are deemed experimental. )

OHL Betting Tips (7-1, +3.6u): This one feels a bit risky – not too confident on Sarnia Sting so I’d advise only a half unit bet. Double on Kitchener Rangers/Sarnia Sting at 2.23 odds.

WHL Betting Tips (2-5, -2.48u): Medicine Hat Tigers in regulation 1.65 odds. Portland Winterhawks in regulation 1.80 odds. Portland/Kelowna over 7.5 goals 1.85 odds.

KHL Betting Tips (13-8, +3.70u): CSKA -1-5 at 2.05 odds (takes place on 21st).

I like Wild-Jets to go over5,5. Any thoughts?

Peter Jordan

my books are all listing that one at 6. i would take that bet at 5.5


I don’t like 6, but I’d take 5.5 if I could

Western RattlersD

That’s my only NHL pick today; OVER for Min-Wpg. Just seems like the way to go, from all data in so far this season. Can’t see much with a clear edge in any other NHL games tonight. In other leagues, also a tough day with few choices. Better to wait altogether for Saturday’s slate?


Yo, why do you base your thoughts on odds given? Tonight SJ for me seems very comfortable, due to hard game fo ND last night and also due to quite good performance by Sharks last game followed by 4 days rest. Yes, odds not the best, but it doesnt meen, that I need to tAke ND in this case, does it?

Graeme (BetNHL.ca)

It’s based on what we feel their chances to win are compared to the odds. You should always be factoring in the odds when making a bet – although it shouldn’t be the only thing you factor in. In this instance we feel Devils chances to win the game are enough to make it an +EV bet.


These guys are all about odds !!

Their track record is not the greatest !!!

Graeme (BetNHL.ca)

We’re not “all about odds” however odds are the base factor and the most important thing you should be looking at when it comes to gambling. If you’re not getting what you deem to be good odds, it’s a bad bet.


Omg. Waited for such comments.

Show your track record, which is better))

Good luck. And dont be so rude

Mtl@Ana is hard to call;
This is the Habs 3rd gm in 4 nights so Ducks have an advantage but Anaheim hasn’t played for 4dys and that could be a factor;
This could be the best chance the
Habs have at ending their losing steak but Anaheim has the edge;
I agree, you can’t dismiss the Wings; The GF/GA for both teams are pretty similar but I think the Wings chances for a win are better against the Canucks on Sunday;
This could be a win for the Sabres if they take can take advantage of the Canucks on a btob but the odds (ML) aren’t that great;


My combo in regular time: Sabres, Sharks, Penguins and Ducks.


How the oddsmakers have Devils as dogs (Devils dogs, heehee) is beyond me. With the way they are playing and putting up great numbers each game it’s hard not to back them. Devils ML, reg and TT

Pens-Cats o6 – both teams are scoring 3.5/game and letting in 4/game. They are both explosive teams and over comes easily in this game

Caps regulation for all the reasons stated above, but mostly because they are a better team.

Nucks-Sabres o1.5 1st – Both teams leaky as a migrant boat but they both have the ability to pile on shots, especially Buffalo, and two are bound to find the back of the net

Nucks TT – Chad Johnson and the Sabres defense suck. Nucks will score 3+ goals



Here’s what I got for tonight

Over 1.5 1st Period -120 and Over 6 for the game -116

Over 1.5 1st period -118 and Over 5.5 -125 for the game.

Jets forward Brendan Lemieux, 21, will make his NHL debut. Lemieux had been acquired from the Buffalo Sabres as part of the Evander Kane trade on Feb. 11, 2015. He had five points (three goals, two assists) in four games with Manitoba of the American Hockey League. He is the son of four-time Stanley Cup champion Claude Lemieux.
