Stanley Cup Betting Tips For Thursday, April 21

Jon and DerekWe won our only bet last night as the Panthers evened their first-round series against New York with a 2-1 win over the Islanders.

Florida came through with a very disciplined defensive effort, the type of game you need to play to win on the road in the playoffs. Petrovic isn’t exactly known as a goal scorer, but we liked the hesitation move he put on Greiss before putting the game-winner away midway through the third.

Derek and Jon were on opposite sides of that series, the only one we disagreed on in Round 1. (By the way, those picks are doing pretty well, with the Red Wings and Ducks as the only teams currently losing their series.) Derek looks to be in the driver’s seat with the Panthers having taken back home-ice advantage, but Jon still feels pretty good about the Islanders’ chances, especially at the +135 price he got.

The Flyers tripped up a few people last night, coming up with an impressive effort to avoid being swept by the Capitals. The Sharks took a 3-1 series lead on the Kings, and the Stars can eliminate Minnesota in Game 5 after downing the Wild 3-2.

On to tonight, with 4 more games slated. We lean to the Penguins to continue their roll with Murray in net, but the Rangers can be a dangerous bunch with their backs to the wall. Tampa should eliminate Detroit but we won’t pay -155 odds to see them do it, and the Ducks/Predators clash is priced about right (pretty much even odds) in our opinion.

We’re going with 1 pick again tonight. Good luck with your plays.
