We went 1-0 last night as the Sharks doubled up the Blues 6-3 in St. Louis.
The Blues took a major penalty in the first period and San Jose took full advantage, scoring twice to take a 3-0 lead. St. Louis battled back a couple of times but every time they got close, the Sharks would pull away again.
We absolutely love the way both the Sharks and Ducks are playing these days. They’ve both been under the radar much of the season because of their crappy starts to the year, but they are sizzling right now.
There are 9 games tonight, and we were sure we’d have at least 2 or 3 tips today. But we don’t have a great feeling about this betting board.
Rangers/Devils seems like a tossup, and so does Flyers/Hurricanes. Predators should beat the Leafs, but we’re not eager to lay -150 on a team playing its second straight road game.
Looks like value on the Blue Jackets tonight in Detroit, but Columbus is on a back to back too.
We were close to taking the Kings over Calgary (Flames’ goaltending still stinks) but LA hasn’t won in regulation in 2 weeks and they’re playing their first home game after a long road trip, which is never an easy spot.
So, just 1 tip for tonight again. Fortunately, going with 1-2 tips a day has been working pretty well for us lately. Let’s try to improve to 9-1 on our last 10 Best Bets and 18-4 on our last 22 NHL totals.
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.
We searched for a reason not to bet the Over in this game, and we couldn’t find one.
The Wild looks like a completely different team since Yeo got fired. They’re 4-0 under coach John Torchetti and have outscored their opponents 21-8. They’ve scored 5 goals in each of those 4 games, which would match this total just on their own. Minny’s also gone over the total in 9 straight games (not including a push).
New York isn’t exactly an over machine, but the Isles are averaging more than 3.5 goals in their last 7 games. We should be able to get at least 2 goals from New York tonight, which probably is enough to earn a push at the worst.
