We got back in the winner’s circle last night by cashing 2 of our 3 bets, including a Best Bet winner on the Red Wings/Panthers Under 5. That game was scoreless going into the 3rd before Detroit won 3-0.
Our other win came on the Over 5.5 in Ottawa (Lightning coach Jon Cooper will get a Christmas card from us this year after pulling his goalie with 8 minutes left down 4-1), while we lost our bet on the Ducks to beat the Penguins. Sidney Crosby had 4 more points for Pittsburgh, and it’s great to see him back to his old self.
Tons of games to bet on tonight, and we’ve singled out 3 that we like the most.
Also, just a heads up, Florida looks really easy tonight in Buffalo but that line moved significantly against the Panthers today and it’s Florida’s 4th game in 6 nights. We’re not saying the Sabres will win, but there was similar line movement against the Panthers yesterday and they were outshot 21-9 through the first 35 minutes or so against Detroit.
Good luck whatever you play tonight!
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.
The Ducks and Flyers have both been playing a lot of higher-scoring games lately. Anaheim has gone Over 5 times in its last 6 games, pushing the other one. Philly hasn’t had a game go Under the total in its last 10.
In the case of Anaheim, their offence is finally clicking after a brutal start to the year. You knew guys like Perry, Getzlaf and Kesler couldn’t be kept down forever, and the Ducks have scored 37 goals in their last 10 games.
Philly has managed at least 2 goals in each of its last 10, and when the total’s 5, we just need both teams to score twice to guarantee ourselves a push. We expect at least that tonight.

Did you guys hear about that little deal between the Leafs and Sens today?Of course you did… when the captain of the Leafs gets dealt, Twitter blows up.
So too can any locker room when a key player gets traded. Toronto players know the playoffs are a pipe dream this year, but it’s still a bit of a feeling that management doesn’t believe you’re good enough. The Leafs could be really flat emotionally tonight.
Besides, Phaneuf has been averaging more than 22 minutes a game on the blue line, and that’s a tough void to fill right away. Especially against an opponent that has dominated Toronto at home over the years, with the Flames winning 8 of the last 9 meetings at the SaddleDome. That’s not a meaningless trend – these western Canadian teams get geared up for a visit from the Leafs, when the crowd is really into it. Calgary has no excuse not to get the job done tonight.

We expect Minnesota to get things turned around eventually, but how can you pass up these odds considering both teams’ current forms? Dallas let us down Saturday against Chicago but had won its previous 3 games, and Lindy Ruff will be cracking the whip after that poor outing against the Hawks.
The Wild has been excellent at home for a really long time, but they’ve lost their last 5 in their own rink. The fans are getting restless and you can sense the players’ desperation when you read or hear interviews. If Dallas can pop an early one, things could get even uglier in Minny tonight.
