Last night Vegas got off to a slow start and started their game down 3-0 before coming back to make it a 3-2 game but couldn’t tie it up with some great chances in the third period where they outshot Montreal 18-7. So that series is tied now going to Montreal for Game 3. I don’t regret my huge Vegas bet last night. I hate that it lost 8.58 units. But I don’t really regret it. I think I made the right move with the information I put the effort in all season researching for. Vegas was the better team in the game but the slow start they couldn’t come all the way back from. Tonight the Isles and Bolts play Game 3 on Long Island with a tied series.
Game 3: Islanders vs. Lightning (8:00)
After losing 2-1 in a slow Game 1 at home, Tampa bounced back with a big 4-2 win at home in Game 2. This series is closer than I expected it to be and although I think the Bolts are the better team in this series, I could easily see the Islanders get a win tonight in the loud Coliseum. I’d also lean the under here but neither of those I like enough to bet on it. Since I have series bets on Tampa to win the series in six games, I’d rather see Tampa win tonight but wouldn’t hate an Isles win since I have this series to go over 5.5 games and if the Isles win tonight, I’d expect Tampa to tie up the series in Game 4. Laying off this game entirely.
