Hey guys. We’ll be appearing and recording tonight at Derby Lane from 7:30 – 9:30, but first lets look at all the NHL games tonight.
First let’s see the over/unders. The line that’s most off is the O/U 5.5 in the Hurricanes/ Blues game. I have the game scoring a bit over 4.5 goals. The under will cost you -120, but consider it. This line is off. Also very appealing is the second worst line tonight, the over in the Kings/Canucks game. Which can be had right now for +120. I have that game coming in at 6 goals. At -120 you need a bet to hit at least 55% of the time to start making money. You only need 45% at +120. They’re both very tempting bets. I’ve got the Blues winning 3-2. The Kings/Canucks looks to me like 4-2 kings or 3-3 and then 4-3 in OT.
Going into the spreads and moneylines the Devils +170 looks very interesting. In the last month they’ve scored almost identically to the capitals while only giving up a fraction of a goal per game more. At +170 we only need the Devils to win 37% of the time or more.
The biggest upset of the night looks the be the Bruins over the Senators. I have them going into the end of the game up a goal and a half. The senators defense has been piss poor lately and the teams offenses are equally lopsided. Ottawa played last night, Boston did not. Looks very good for the Bruins -1.5 at +180.
The Kings -1.5 over the Canucks for +210 looks appetizing. At that price we need it to come in less than a third of the time to start making money. I have the Kings going into the end of the game up almost a full goal. That’s empty net territory and I like their chances.
Here are the bets.
Lock: Bruins -1.5 against Senators +180.
Lean: Kings -1.5 against the Canucks +210.
Lean: Over 5.5 Kings/Canucks +120.
Lean: Devils +170 against the Capitals.
Gamblers Choice: Under 5.5 Hurricanes/Blues -120.
Honestly, I’ll be betting all of these. I’ve put them in approximate order of confidence. Blame me for all but the Gamblers Choice. If you’re not familiar, Gamblers Choice are bets I think YOU should consider heavily for YOURSELF. I’m pretty confident in the under in that game, the line is trash, but I generally don’t like favorites. If tonight’s other lines were tighter that bet would definitely be a lean. They’re only a slight favorite so I’m gonna roll with it.
