NHL Betting Tips For Thursday, March 28

Jon and Derek

Our hot run in March continued on Tuesday with the Habs winning easily 6-1 in regulation.

That pushes our record to 10-1 in our last 11.

Obviously, that’s not sustainable, but we’ll hope to keep the good times rolling tonight 🙂

There are 8 games in the NHL today as we draw closer to the conclusion of the regular season.

We breakdown today’s Best Bet in the Habs/Jackets tilt. We have one other pick and one opinion on the remaining games on the board.

Odds below are at the time we made the picks.

Good luck tonight!

Other thoughts and opinions:

  • Capitals at Hurricanes: If there’s anything in the NHL right now that you can set your watch to, it’s the Capitals scoring at least three goals in a game. They’ve done it in 14 of their last 15 trips to the rink, most recently Tuesday’s 4-1 win over the visiting Hurricanes. Carolina’s desperate for points as it tries to stay ahead of the Blue Jackets and Canadiens in the wild card standings, but the Caps are also playing for something, fending off the Pens and Isles for the lead in the Metro. Washington Team Total Over 2.5 -133 might make our card tonight. 
  • Blackhawks at Sharks: Chicago’s wild Over run has come to a screeching halt. The Hawks have now gone Under in six straight games, scoring a grand total of eight goals in those half-dozen contests. But while Chicago’s attack has run dry, the Blackhawks have getting some stellar play from Corey Crawford, who’s allowed 12 goals in his last eight starts. The Sharks are in an offensive funk of their own right now, scoring just 14 goals during a six-game losing streak. With frustration high and confidence low in San Jose at the moment, we think it translates into a lower-scoring affair. Assuming Crawford starts, we’ll be on the Under 6.5 +110 here (and will count it towards our record.)

 

Good luck!
