HOLY HELL, we are back! It has been a minute! I can’t wait to win you all some money as well as myself. Going to be an unreal year, if you’re a loser don’t please leave, only winners here. Let’s get into it though, there’s 8 games tonight, going to give you four picks, four good picks, no garbage picks.
Philadelphia Flyers(4-5-0) vs Boston Bruins (5-2-2)
This one is an easy one to me, we have Boston at home(-160), Philadelphia on the road who have been struggling lately, coming off a home loss vs Colorado and just having some issues scoring goals, the Bruins are for sure the easiest choice. The city of Boston is booming right now, the Bruins will ride that Boston sports wave. The Flyers allow 4.11 goals per game (30th in the league) while scoring 3.33 per game, against a Bruins offense when you allow 4+ goals a game it will be hard to compete. The Bruins allow just 2.67 goals per game(9th in the league). In every aspect of the game the Bruins have an edge on the Flyers. With Tuukka Rask to start vs Brian Elliot (3.59 GAA and .882 save percentage). Riding Boston. Boston is -1.5, -160 and an over/under of 5.5, I’d go with the money line.
Montreal Canadiens(5-1-2) vs Buffalo Sabres(5-4-0)
May be an unpopular opinion but the Canadiens are clearly hot right now and coming out way better than anyone has expected. They are third in the Atlantic averaging 3.25 goals per game while only allowing 2.63 goals against. Registering 33.8 shots on net with a power play percentage of 20.6(17th) they are hot and playing well. But the Sabres are not a bad team either, while they only score 2.44 goals per game, while allowing 2.78 goals per game, looking at the Sabres numbers thus far they rank up similar to Montreal expect the Canadiens offense seems to be off to a hotter start. But with Antti Niemi in net tonight, and Buffalo at home, I like Buffalo tonight. Buffalo is -1.5 spread, -130 and over/under of 5.5. I believe the over could hit but, 6 goals with these two teams is tough, I’d stick Buffalo money line.
Los Angeles Kings(2-6-1) vs Minnesota Wild(3-1-2)
Another unpopular pick but the Kings certainly have not been playing well they are off to a rocky start and Jonathan Quick has not looked like himself at all this season so far with a 4.55 goals against and .845 save percentage and not a single win. I think tonight is the night Quick gets his first win after taking two terrible losses. The Kings offense plus Quick’s poor start it has been rough but putting all numbers aside the Kings can come into tonight and take a win. Quick will wake up and bounce out of this funk. With Los Angeles +1.5 spread, +145 money line and over/under 5.5, I’d go under if anything and money line for LA.
Washington Capitals(4-2-2) vs Edmonton Oilers(3-3-1)
The Capitals got a big win in Vancouver Tuesday night and continue their Canadian road trip in Edmonton now, and Edmonton got beat bad vs Pittsburgh Tuesday night. Having a lead and losing it, to having Sidney Crosby single handily dismantle the Oilers defense in overtime to take a win on their home ice. I doubt Edmonton allows that to happen again. Edmonton has looked pretty solid this year, despite having an offense only scoring 2.57 goals per game, but their special teams have looked great, they are 100% capable of handling their own especially on home ice. After taking Pittsburgh to overtime to lose the way they did, I doubt they let two home games slip through their fingers. Going with Edmonton tonight. Oilers is +1.5 spread, +105 money line, and over/under of 6, probably the over and money line for Edmonton tonight is a good choice.
