Man, was that frustrating.
Our 3 NHL betting tips last night – the Rangers, Canadiens and Predators – combined to outshoot their opponents 127-71. And we took the collar in an 0-3 night.
The Rangers needed 49 shots to beat Ryan Miller and the Canucks 3-2 in OT, but we took New York to win in regulation at lower odds. The Canadiens lost again, 4-1 to Boston, and the Blackhawks won again, beating Nashville 4-1.
These kinds of nights happen in sports betting, unfortunately. The important thing to remember is that we’re still up money for the month and for the season, so we’ll stand back up, dust ourselves off and try to get some of it back tonight.
Odds below are at the time we made the pick. Be sure to check out our live odds page for updated odds on today’s games.
The Blues might look like they’re playing well right now, winning 4 of their last 5, but we’re not fooled. They were badly outshot in their last 2 wins, giving up 38 shots to Pittsburgh and 49 to Montreal, and lost at home to Carolina the game before that. Defensive hockey is what St. Louis is known for, and they’re not playing it lately.
Detroit lost 2-1 in a shootout Sunday to Philly, but that was the Wings’ first home game after a west coast trip which is always a tough spot. Detroit had been playing well before that, winning 5 of 6, and we like the way the Wings are playing in their own zone. Expect Detroit to win its fifth straight meeting with the Blues tonight.

The Wild is awful right now. They’ve lost 4 in a row, the last 2 by shutout. Minny has scored a grand total of 3 goals in its last 4 games, and you can tell the players are squeezing their sticks in frustration.
Anaheim is not usually a place struggling teams go to break out of scoring slumps. The Ducks have held Minnesota to 1 goal or less in 7 of the last 12 meetings between these teams, winning 10 of them. It was either Ducks -125 or the Under 5 in this game for us, and we think the Under is a safer play (also at better odds) because Anaheim’s offence is horrible as well – dead last in the league at 1.95 goals per game.
