It was a 1-0 night with our only official NHL betting tip, but if you jumped on the value plays on all 3 underdogs in the other games I recommended, it was a nice 4-0 night for you.

Sorry about the lateness in the tips today. Honestly it was a very difficult night for tips despite so many available games. We’ve been going over them all day but can only come up with two which we’ll get to in a minute. First – last night….

The Bruins came out fast and strong and went up to a 2-0 lead in the first period. This is a shining example of the high variance of our 1st period betting system. Luckily there were still 40 minute left and the New York Rangers came back to win 5-2 and get us the win.

Montreal won a hard fought game over the Islanders, while the Oilers got a big win over the Capitals 4-1. Talbot stepped up big in that one. The Oilers are now 6-1-0. It’s still early days but if you talk to anyone from Edmonton you may as well just hand them the cup right now.

Anaheim pulled off a surprise rout of the Nashville Predators, winning 6-1 in extremely dominant fashion.

We move onto Thursday, October 27th. We’ve got 9 games on the go. Let’s see what we have – going to rush through the write-ups due to lack of time:

Flyers vs Coyotes Betting Tips

We just have to go against the Coyotes tonight. To their credit they have had some fight in them in practically every one of their 5 losses so you can’t write them off. Their lone win is over the Flyers too. However bad goaltending, the losing road record and a Flyers team coming off that great fight back against Buffalo – we’re taking Flyers in Regulation tonight at 1.95 odds.

Blue Jackets vs Sharks Betting Tips:

Whenever a team is 2.60 odds or above we feel obligated to look closely at them to see if they’re worth betting – and we see that value in the Jackets who are 2.75 odds to win.

Sharks aren’t a team you can count on at the moment. They lost to a weakened Rangers team, a Crosby-less Penguins(blowing a 2 goal lead) and the Detroit Red Wings.

The Jackets have 2 wins to their name – over the Blackhawks and on the road in Dallas. They’ve lost to the Sharks already this season and to be fair that was a very dominant performance by the Sharks so they should be strong favourites.

We just both like what the Blue Jackets are doing. They’ve had some solid games and we feel they’re a nice value play for today.

Blue Jackets to win.

3 from 4 last night.
Only 3 for tonight: Habs, Leafs and Kings.
Also i like some players to score: Plekanec, Matthews, Vanek and Carter.


Bolts will win tonight:P


Oh, not again.
Last night lion and SanDiegoBruins assure me Ducks gonna lose, now you with Bolts.
Time will tell.:)


To be accurate, I did not say Ducks would lose. I took over because I thought Gibson good for 2-3 and Rinne was not at 100%. I was right about Rinne and wrong about Gibson, but still won over thanks to Ducks offense going off big time.


Good job:p


I hope to win also Kings to have 100% percent.:)


2-0 last night with the Habs and Rangers. I agree, the sides are particularly difficult to pick tonight. There are some totals I like though.
Panthers/Leafs Over 5.5
Blue Jackets/Sharks Under 5.5

@BlueLineBets on Twitter


I’m going with Over 5.5 Panthers/Leafs as well. Toronto all offense and Panthers should be able to punish them with their counterattacks


Agreed! My model loves the over.

Big $$ on tampa bay

Blue Jackets and wings two great value games. Wings have winning trends in St Louis


2-0 for me last night with habs and rangers.
Indeed, pretty tough tonight. I’ll be going with Philly and Habs again, both in ML


I had Habs and blueshirts last night so 2-0 on my side.

I’ll be taking Philly and Habs again, both in ML. Price in nets and at the Bell Center.


Detroit seems interesting also with Abdelkader back in lineup…


Good picks last night guys.

Note: all my bets are straight up and not parlays.

Tonight I like Flyers to dominate the Yotes who are on the final game of a disastrous road trip. The Yotes have to demoralized and looking to get back to their own beds and put this behind them. Meanwhile, the Flyers had a decisive win two nights ago and will be looking for a winning streak. Yote’s have let in at least 3 goals in the previous five games. I like Flyers to win in reg, Flyers puckline and game to go over. For Yotes 4 of last 6 have gone over, including 4-3 loss to Flyers at home. For Flyers 4 of last 6 have done over and they have given up at least 3 in each of those games.

I like Wild to win this game decisively. They will follow up their dominating win over the Bruins with another strong performance against the hapless Sabres who are without their best players. I have Wild to win in regulation, Wild puck line and Wild team total o2.5.

I wish I could watch the Habs / Bolts game tonight, these are two of the hottest teams out of the gate. However, I like Montreal to make a statement. Price is a game changer and Habs have not lost in regulation with him in net. They have also not lost at home since the season began. Gibson and the Bolts D are leaky. 3 or more goals have been scored against them in 4 of their last 6 games. I like Habs to continue their success behind Price and at home and have placed bets on money line, puck line and team total o2.5

The Cats / Leafs game looks like a shoot-out. Leafs don’t have much D or goaltending and the Cats have given up 3 or more in their last 4 games. I have o1.5 in the first period and Cats scoring o2.5, Cats money line and Cats puck line.

disclaimer: I am an amateur gambler and do not pretend to be a professional handicapper. My bets are usually relatively small bets. I have reasons for making my bets, but do your own due diligence and follow my bets at your own risk.


Lightning win
Stars win
Panthers-Leads over5.5

Eduardo Caldeira

Like the picks , I would include a over 5.5 on the flyers game… they have been leaking goals also so its very possible to go over the total

Also see good value on the canadiens… Price is back on net so its going to be very tough . and also maybe an under in that one


what you say about a victory of Penguins?

Jean-Philippe Guérin

Anyone on the Pens tonight?


Value bet for me
Detroit ML ODD 2.5


Tonight picks,

Lightning win
Panthers win %100
Blues win %100
Predators win
Jackets win %100
Sabres win

Good luck guys


Hey there I’m following this site and comments for years now and so I am kind of familiar with the ppl here. I got just one questions about your picks: Are you just predicting or also betting? Because you are not bad with your predictions, but it seems hard to make money with those solo bets and even harder in combo.


My predictions did not go well last 2 days and the last night was terrible. Yes I do bet of course but I do it really for fun thats why I go sometimes with risky picks. This year teams are different and its hard to understand exactly what is going on. I decided to wait for another week for make some analyses and predict tips again.

Really like over 5 in Sabres wild


Flyers – Arizona game didn’t go OK 🙁
