Although the regular season hasn’t ended for the North and there’s a game there today, what really matters is the playoffs start tonight! Breaking it all down!
Note: I’ll go in depth on my new Penguins bets with a full series preview like I did on the Caps/Bruins series.
Oilers vs. Canucks (3:30)
The Oilers finish off their regular season today against Vancouver before they prepare for their first round playoff series that starts with Game 1 on Wednesday against the Winnipeg Jets. Edmonton’s the way better team here today and they’re 6-3 against the Canucks this season but this is essentially a throw away, look ahead game for them today, so I’m not betting this one. I’d lean the Oilers and the over, which is also 6-3 on the year.
Game 1: Capitals vs. Bruins (7:15)
As I broke down in my full series breakdown of this series, which you’ll want to make sure to read, I expect the Boston Bruins to win this series. In addition to the futures and series bets I added for the Bruins, a large majority of teams that win Game 1 go on to win their respective series, so I’m on the Bruins tonight for a unit and the puck line for a half unit.
