Last night was alright, going 2-2 and winning both early bets and losing both late bets, making a tiny .14 profit. Better in the green than in the red though! Tonight’s a big nine game slate with six of those games loaded in the 7:00 time slot. Let’s have a good winning night.
Capitals vs. Sabres (7:00)
The Sabres fucking suck. Its unbelievable how bad this team has been for over a fucking decade. They’re coming off back to back losses to the Isles where in one game they didn’t even got a shot on goal in an entire period and then got shut out by a struggling backup goaltender. We’re the laughing stock of the NHL. So what better way to make myself not care about my team losing night in and night out, bet against them. In the four games this season between these two teams, the Caps won three of those games, including a few that the Caps were missing four of their best players. Washington’s a good team and I’m hammering them tonight. Two units on the Caps ML.
Bruins vs. Devils (7:00)
The Bruins are the best team in the East but I think the books have the line wrong on this one. In the two games among these teams this season, the Bruins won 3-2 in a shootout and then the Devils won 2-1 with less than two seconds left in overtime. Although I’d definitely lean that the B’s win this one, I think NJ keeps it close and at a price of only -125, I think there’s good value in the Devils +1.5 so I’m going with that for half a unit.
Flyers vs. Rangers (7:00)
The Flyers haven’t played in 11 days since their 7-4 win (while getting significantly outshot) against the Capitals and the Rangers have had four straight losses. I would think the Flyers win this one and should outmatch the Rangers. At the cheap price tonight, I’m going with half a unit each on the Flyers ML and puck line.
Penguins vs. Islanders (7:00)
The Penguins and Islanders have played twice so far this season and split those games with the Islanders winning 4-3 and Pittsburgh winning 4-3. I think this game’s a toss up and likely goes over, but I don’t see any edge in betting this one.
Blue Jackets vs. Predators (7:00)
Both of these teams haven’t been very good this season but they should match up pretty well. I’d expect this game to stay close and probably go under but its not a game that I want to bet on.
Maple Leafs vs. Senators (7:00)
The Leafs should’ve blown out Ottawa in their last two games. First Toronto blew a 5-1 lead to lose 6-5 in overtime and then the next game was super boring as the Leafs won 2-1. Tonight likely with both backups in goal and how Toronto’s been playing down to the Sens level, I’m not putting any stock into them at the ridiculous price on Toronto.
Blues vs. Sharks (8:00)
The Sharks played the Blues pretty closely the first two times that they played earlier this season in a 5-4 Blues win and a 2-1 Sharks win. Coming off of losing a 7 game series to Arizona 4 games to 3, I’d expect St. Louis to beat San Jose tonight, so I’ll go with half a unit on the Blues ML tonight.
Coyotes vs. Kings (9:00)
The Yotes are coming of winning a 7 game series against the Blues, who are a significantly better team than the Kings. I think tonight Arizona beats LA, so i’m going with half a unit on the Coyotes ML.
Ducks vs. Wild (10:00)
These two lousy teams split their two games earlier in the year with Anaheim winning 1-0 and then Minnesota answering back to win 3-2. I’d lean the under here but I’m not touching this game.
