Last night I went 4-4 for a small loss of 0.94 units. With the way some of those games went last night, I’m fine with that. Tonight, only a quick two game slate. Trying something new adding a video version to my daily write ups and bets on the NHL slate so make sure you check that out!
Flyers vs. Bruins (7:30)
I had pretty high expectations for the Flyers the last few years and last year they disappointed, missing the playoffs entirely in a lousy year. They’ve started this season pretty well though with a 5-4 overtime loss to Vancouver and then a 6-1 beat down on the Seattle Kraken. The Bruins have only played one game this season, a 3-1 win over Dallas. With Martin Jones confirmed in goal for the Flyers, I’ll take the B’s for half a unit. In addition to that, I’ll take the over for half a unit. The Flyers haven’t had an issue scoring this season so I’d expect them to be able to score 2-3 goals on Swayman.
Golden Knights vs. Blues (10:00)
Vegas is missing some key pieces on their roster including Max Pacioretty, Mark Stone and Mattias Janmark. Vegas is 1-1 with a 4-3 win over the Kraken on opening night of the season and then after the injuries lost 6-2 to the Kings. The Blues have been buzzing for their two games with a 5-3 win over a shorthanded Avs and a 7-4 win against the lousy Yotes. I still think Vegas is a good team even with injuries and this should be a very good, close game. If Binnington starts for the Blues (currently projected to start), I’d lean the Blues win. If Husso starts, the Knights should win and I’ll likely late add the Knights TT over. For now though with Bin Nasty projected, I’ll lay off this game.
