I went 1-2 last night that started with the Bruins winning Game 1 but going over with a 5-2 score. Then the Leafs who came back with a clutch tying goal with three minutes left in regulation, controlled overtime before Jesperi Kotkaniemi’s goal in OT forced Game 7 for the Habs. Tonight the Central and West Division Finals begin!
Game 1: Lightning vs. Hurricanes (5:00)
I think this ends up being a fantastic series as I broke down in my preview blog on it for the Central Division Finals. I think Tampa has the slight edge to win the series so I’m rolling with two units on them to win the series as well as a unit on the Game 1 moneyline tonight.
Game 1: Avalanche vs. Golden Knights (8:00)
The series we’ve all been waiting for as the two best teams in hockey face off for the West Division Finals! As I wrote up in my biggest series preview, I think the Avs win this series but the price isn’t there for me to bet on them for the series. For Game 1, with Colorado at home on a full week’s rest where Vegas is on the road after a hard fought series and their Game 7 win less than 48 hours ago, I’ll go with the Avs to start the series with a win. I’ll take Colorado ML for a unit.
