Yesterday was a tough slate that I ended up going 1-3 on but luckily my biggest bet of the night was Colorado ML so their winning goal in overtime on a great play minimized my loss to less than a unit. Today we have a small five game Saturday slate to bounce back on!
Another note, Pierre-Luc Dubois just got his wish and got dealt out of Columbus. Obviously he hated Tortorella since he wouldn’t say why he wanted to get traded, so when Torts played him for less than three minutes on Thursday, the writing was on the wall. Big trade with the Jackets sending Dubois and a 3rd round pick to Winnipeg for Patrik Laine and Jack Roslovic, a big move for both teams. I do sort of hate that Dubois orchestrated himself getting traded though, this isn’t the NBA (sick league).
Blue Jackets vs. Lightning (2:00)
When they played on Thursday, Tampa beat out Columbus in overtime 3-2. As long as Vasilevskiy is in net (he’s projected to start, but not confirmed yet), I think Tampa wins this one. 1 unit on Tampa ML.
Bruins vs. Flyers (7:00)
I took the under on this game on Thursday night and it went way over with a 5-4 shootout win for Boston. I’m flipping the script and going with the over on this game tonight for half a unit.
Canucks vs. Canadiens (7:00)
Montreal’s a fucking wagon and still hasn’t lost in regulation this year. On Thursday, they blew out Vancouver 7-3 in a bounce back from losing to them in a shootout 6-5. I’m not betting against this team. If Carey Price gets confirmed in net (currently projected to start), I’m on Montreal for half a unit.
Blues vs. Kings (8:00)
The Kings are coming off a surprising win over Colorado (with their backup goalie) on Thursday night. StL is coming off of a 2-1 boring shootout loss to the Sharks. I think the Blues are the superior team here and get the win tonight. Blues ML for half a unit was long as Binnington’s confirmed in net (currently projected).
Jets vs. Senators (10:00)
On Thursday Winnipeg beat the Sens pretty easily 4-1. I’m not really sold on either of these teams so I’m skipping this game.
1u Tampa ML (-165)
.5u Flyers/Bruins over 5.5 (+100)
.5u Montreal ML (-150)
.5u Blues ML (-200)
Record: 24-22 (-5.61 units)
Note: I use leftwinglock.com for all goalie confirmations and I’m only betting Tampa, Montreal and the Blues if Vas, Price and Binnington are confirmed in net.
