We pushed last night on the Sharks/Predators over 5.
Forsberg scored on an absolute rocket to give Nashville a 4-1 lead fairly late in the 3rd period and guarantee us a push. Each team had great chances in the final minutes but couldn’t quite bump us over the total.
Our playoffs single-game record remained at 9-7 for +2.6 units, with 4 pushes thrown in. We’re also up nearly 4 units on our series bets after going 6-2 in Round 1, though 2 of our 3 series picks in Round 2 are trailing 2-1.
That includes the Islanders, who saw a late 4-3 lead slip away in a 5-4 OT loss (what a great game that was). The other game last night was the Blues spanking Dallas 6-1. We have been critical of the Stars’ Stanley Cup chances because of their defensive weaknesses, and St. Louis certainly exposed them yesterday.
Tonight, we have just 1 game to bet on. We locked in our bet this morning (posted on Facebook and Twitter) concerned that the line might move. It has a little bit, but not enough to worry about, especially if you play at a reduced juice book like Pinnacle, BetOnline or 5Dimes.
Good luck with your bets 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 Caps are down 2-1 in this series, and they could be down 3-0 if they hadn’t pulled out Game 1 in OT. However, they could also be up 2-1 in the series – they outshot the Penguins 49-23 in their Game 3 loss – and we expect another inspired effort tonight.
Pittsburgh is obviously without Letang. He’s arguably the most important player in that lineup. The Penguins have continued to win when they’ve been missing Crosby, Malkin and/or Fleury in recent years, but they were 2-8-1 in games this season without Letang. He has averaged more than 30 minutes of ice time in the series so far, and the Pens defence corps will feel his absence more than the forwards miss a player like Crosby or Malkin.
Given the urgency of the situation for Washington, how the Capitals dominated last game and how the Letang suspension could affect Pittsburgh, we like Washington at close to a pick ’em price.
