After a 6-1 start to the Stanley Cup playoffs, we’ve cooled off a bit, dropping 3 of our last 4. That included a loss last night, with the Islanders and Panthers combining for just 3 goals to spoil our Over 5 bet.
We were torn whether to go with the Over or the Islanders +140 last night, so we just picked the wrong one. The previous night, we lost in overtime. So we’re not far off, and feel ready to bounce back tonight.
What a crazy night last night was. The Flyers must have ruined a ton of parlay bets last night by winning in Washington; Minnesota upset the Stars in Dallas; and the Sharks doubled up the Kings 6-3 in LA to eliminate them. We had the Sharks +150 to win that playoff series, so it was nice to cash that.
Anyway, on to tonight. Good luck with your bets.
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.
For this game to go Over 5, one of these teams would need to score 4 goals. We don’t really see that happening here. The last two games in this series have been 4-3 scores, but we think that actually increases the likelihood of a lower-scoring game tonight as each team increases its focus on defence.
