NHL Daily Gambling Preview – 5/19/21

Turned another profit last night going 2-1, with the Penguins and Vegas both tying up their series at home in Game 2. The NHL regular season finally ends tonight and the Oilers/Jets series starts the North Division playoffs! Let’s make it three winning nights in a row!

Flames vs. Canucks (3:30)

The regular season finally ends tonight despite playoff games happening this past week. On the season, Calgary is 6-3 against Vancouver and have won 2 of the 3 games they’ve played this past week with the loss coming 4-2 yesterday. I think the Flames bounce back and end their season today with a win. Not betting this game. I’d lean the over as well but I’m not betting that either.

Game 3: Bruins vs. Capitals (6:30)

Both Games 1 and 2 in this series went to overtime in our nation’s capital as the Caps won Game 1 and the Bruins answered back in Game 2, pouring 48 shots on goal in a 4-3 win as Brad Marchand won it just 39 seconds in overtime. I haven’t thought the Bruins played their best hockey in either of those games and were lucky to steal a win on the road to start the series. Tonight the series shifts to Boston for Game 3. I think the Bruins come out firing in Game 3 to take the series lead tonight. I’ll take the B’s for a unit.

Game 2: Hurricanes vs. Predators (8:00)

In Game 1 on Monday night, the Canes were dialed in and overwhelmed the Nashville Predators on their way to a dominant 5-2 win. This team is a wagon out of the Central and I think they roll through this series. Their arena was packed as well, which definitely gave an energy that the Hurricanes fed off of. I’ll take Carolina ML, Carolina in regulation (to cut down on a bit of juice) and the puck line for a unit each. The puck line was 5-1 in the regular season games that the Canes beat the Preds in and it hit easily in Game 1 of this series as well.

Game 1: Oilers vs. Jets (9:00)

As I wrote in my breakdown of this series, I think the Jets struggling down the closing stretch of the season end up being their downfall as Connor McDavid and his Edmonton Oilers roll through Winnipeg in the first round. In addition to my series bet on Edmonton, I’ll take the Oilers in Game 1 for 2 units.

Game 2: Avalanche vs. Blues (10:30)

Jordan Binnington was incredible in goal for the Blues on Monday night in Game 1 of this series, making 46 saves on 49 shots in a 4-1 loss. The Colorado Avalanche are the best team in the NHL and they proved it in Game 1 lead by their first line, the best in hockey of Nathan MacKinnon (2 goals, 1 assist), Gabriel Landeskog (1 goal, 2 assists) and Mikko Rantanen (2 assists). The Avs are going to roll through this series and I’m back on them in regulation for 2 units.
