We took yesterday off to try to snap out of this ugly March funk we’re in.
It felt like we were close to a decent night Saturday as the Flyers (+140 underdogs) and Avalanche both held third-period leads. Then we blinked, and they were both losing.
Philly went on to lose in a shootout, which was our 3rd straight loss in OT or a shootout. We also had a couple of totals that lost in the final minutes, so we’re not far off from winning some of these bets instead.
Losing streaks are inevitable during a long season, but they still aren’t any fun. Hopefully we’ll start to turn things around tonight with a pair of picks we feel pretty good about.
Strong money management is most important when you have a few rough days in a row. The temptation is there to press your bets to try and quickly recoup what you’ve lost the previous few days, but that’s a recipe for disaster.
Losing 10 in a row or winning 10 in a row doesn’t make it more or less likely that you’ll win your next bet. We strongly suggest you keep all your bets the same and hope that by the end of the year, you’ll have more winners than losers and more money in your pocket than when you began.
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.
No question which team is more motivated here. St. Louis is streaking with 11 wins in its last 14 and battling it out for top spot in the West. Calgary has dropped 12 of 15 and is basically playing out the string.
There’s concern for a Blues letdown here after they’ve posted wins over the Blackhawks, Stars and Ducks over the past week, but St. Louis players are saying they realize they need to make the most of a soft upcoming schedule to earn a better seed in the playoffs. The Blues have won 6 straight games between these teams, and we fully expect them to get their 7th straight victory tonight.

We lost an Oilers Over bet Saturday night, but we probably shouldn’t have. Arizona supplied 4 goals towards the 5.5 total but Edmonton couldn’t manage any, despite firing 44 shots on the Coyotes net.
The Oilers have played a lot of Under games lately, but if they keep putting up those kinds of shot totals, the puck is going to start to go in the net. Often when teams are struggling to score, once they get a goal, the “dam” bursts and they get a few more.
There hasn’t been less than 5 goals scored in a Nashville game since Feb. 25. The Predators had their long point streak snapped last time out against the Canucks, and we can see their defensive intensity slipping a bit here tonight. We won’t be surprised to see Edmonton get a goal or two early, then Nashville battling back throughout the game to get a few of their own – and get us over this low total as well.
