NHL Tips For Saturday, October 19th

Jon and Derek

After taking things slow in the first couple of weeks, we decided to ramp things up Thursday and were rewarded with a 3-0 night with one push.

The most encouraging part was how easily those winners came in, with Devils TT O3.5 (at plus money), Jets TT under 2.5 and Wings TT under 2.5 all cashing with at least a goal to spare.

Hopefully, those strong reads continue on an 11-game Saturday, which features a pair of afternoon games (Canucks/Devils and Canadiens/Blues).

We didn’t have time to break down those two early contests here (if we do play either of them, we’ll post a play on Twitter) but we do have breakdowns for the rest of the board below.

We’re also on 4 games ourselves. Good luck if you’re tailing along!

Odds below are at the time we made the pick.
