NHL Betting Tips For Wednesday, March 15

Jon and DerekOur leans went 3-3 last night with 2 pushes.

We also discussed yesterday that Capitals -1.5 +220 could be a good play because of how desperate Washington would be and how many of their regulation time wins have come by 2+ goals. The Caps beat Minny 4-2, so hopefully a few of you jumped on that and cashed in.

Both of us are currently on vacation with our families for March Break, so the daily posts might be a bit thinner for the next week or so. We’re going to keep capping every game and posting our leans, but it’ll be hard to find time every day to post the stats, trends and other info we typically include in the game breakdowns.

Just wanted to give everyone a heads up because we know a lot of you come to the site more for the stats and trends than for our opinions on the games.

There are 4 games in the NHL tonight, highlighted by a clash between the streaking Bruins and the even hotter Flames in Calgary. That should be a great game.

Good luck tonight!
