Stanley Cup Betting Tips For Sunday, April 14

Jon and DerekThe already-wild 2019 Stanley Cup playoffs added a new chapter this afternoon as the Islanders posted a convincing 4-1 win in Pittsburgh to take a 3-0 series chokehold on the Penguins. Barring Columbus winning the next two games against Tampa Bay, the Isles could become the first team of the playoffs to advance to the next round if they finish off the series Tuesday in Pennsylvania.

We dropped to 4-3 in the playoffs last night with a loser on the Bruins/Leafs Over 6 — the second straight Over play we’ve lost by 1 goal in that series. Our opinions on the Stars +0.5 and Avs/Flames Under 6 both won, although it would have been nice to get a Dallas outright win and a 2-0 series lead headed back to Texas.

With Nikita Kucherov suspended for Tampa Bay and the Lightning’s backs up against the wall, we want no part of a wager in the Bolts’ visit to Columbus tonight. Tampa Bay could very well rally the troops and right the ship with a huge effort, but it’s just as conceivable that the Lightning gets frustrated and rattled if it doesn’t enjoy early success against Bobrovsky and company.

The Winnipeg Jets, however, are a team we’re very interested in backing when adversity strikes, and we explain why in the writeup below. Enjoy the action tonight, good luck on whatever you bet, and thanks for reading!
