|01-30-22||Sabres v. Avalanche UNDER 6.5||Top||1-4||Win||100||8 h 58 m||Show|
Sometimes it’s tough to go against the trends. Colorado is the No. 1 offense in the NHL. And they have been an over machine this season. But we think this total should have been at 6 goals, and we would have leaned to the under at that number. Colorado will probably get their goals here. But we don’t see them putting up a monster number on offense. Buffalo has been playing pretty solid on defense lately, and that is a big reason they have been competitive. And a big reason they have gone under in six of eight. Colorado went over in their last two, But that followed a streak where they didn’t go over the total once in eight games. Also, Buffalo is on a back-to-back and they are 6-2 to the under with no rest this season. We see Colorado getting most of the goals here, but it won’t be enough to push this over the total.
|01-27-22||Flames v. Blues OVER 6||1-5||Push||0||7 h 27 m||Show|
These teams played on Monday and 8 goals were scored. Calgary got the lions share of those on Monday, but we think both teams will get their shots in tonight. Calgary has scored three or more goals in four straight games and they are feeling it right now. St. Louis has a Top 5 offense and they are dangerous every time they lace up the skates.
|01-26-22||Bruins v. Avalanche OVER 6||3-4||Win||100||9 h 12 m||Show|
Colorado has been on a string of unders lately, but that just means we are getting a solid moneyline here for the over. Colorado is 24-12 to the over this season. Boston has gone over in four of five, and their offense has been playing as well as it has all season in the last couple weeks. We see both teams getting some goals here in what should be a competitive game.
|01-25-22||Sabres v. Senators UNDER 6.5||0-5||Win||100||7 h 34 m||Show|
These are two of the worst offensive teams in the league and we think there is nice value on the under. Ottawa has gone under in five of seven, while Buffalo has gone under in four of six. Ottawa is last in the league in shots on goal. This series has a long history for the under as the under is 15-7-2 in the last 24 meetings. These teams played exactly a week ago, and the Sabres won 3-1. Buffalo has had a couple nights off and should be primed to play hard on defense. The Sabres have been playing some of their best hockey of the season lately and are 3-3 in their last six, and they were in position to win a couple of those losses but the puck didn’t go their way. They are 26-15 on the puckline this season, so they have a knack of keeping it close as an underdog.
|01-24-22||Golden Knights v. Capitals OVER 6||Top||1-0||Loss||-115||7 h 40 m||Show|
The Vegas defense has been allowing a lot of goals, and we think the Capitals have a great chance to light up the scoreboard tonight. Both teams have been trending to the over with Vegas going over in three straight and Washington in four of five. The Knights have been off for a few nights and we think they may be rusty here on defense, but the offense comes naturally. The over is 5-1 in the last six meetings, and we think this will be a competitive game and we think the winner here gets 4 or 5 with the loser not far behind.
|01-18-22||Panthers v. Flames OVER 6.5||1-5||Loss||-111||8 h 11 m||Show|
The over is 11-2 in the last 13 meetings. We expect another high scoring affair here. Florida has now gone over in nine straight games. They have 21 goals in their last three games. They have eclipse this total by themselves in some games recently. We see another high scoring affair here.
|01-14-22||Coyotes v. Avalanche UNDER 6.5||3-4||Loss||-100||8 h 23 m||Show|
We were all over Arizona last time out against Toronto, and they got a big upset win. One of their biggest wins of the season. They are in a letdown spot here, and we don’t see them contributing much to this big goal total. They have two or fewer goals in three of their last four games. They have gone under in 10 of 13 games as a road underdog. They have some of the worst offensive numbers in the NHL. We think Colorado will get their share of goals but Arizona won’t contribute theirs.
|01-13-22||Flyers v. Bruins OVER 6||Top||2-3||Loss||-100||6 h 27 m||Show|
The league as a whole is trending to the over right now, but we would like the over here anyways. Boston has gone under in only one of their last seven games. They have scored five or more goals in five of their last six games, so if their offense plays like it has recently, this team could score most of the goals to get this one over the total by themselves. But Philly will probably get their goals, too. Boston is coming in on a back-to-back. Offense will be instinctual to them. But giving the energy for top flight defense might come as a challenge with tired legs. And Tuukka Rask is making his first start of the season after offseason surgery. He missed his rehab stint in the minors and came straight to the big leagues. We expect some rust and he could be extra vulnerable tonight. The over is 7-3 in the last 10 meetings between these teams.
|01-10-22||Rangers v. Kings UNDER 5.5||1-3||Win||100||11 h 52 m||Show|
We think this moneyline is more than fair for the road team, which is a much stronger club. Both teams are solid defensively and we see a low-scoring game and expect the Rangers to win a 2-1 or 3-1 type of game. Both teams have been playing well but we think the Rangers match up well here and we feel they have been very strong on the road.
|01-08-22||Red Wings v. Kings OVER 5.5||0-4||Loss||-100||10 h 47 m||Show|
Both teams are trending to the over, and we expect another high scoring contest here. The Red Wings have gone over in 4 of 5, while the Kings have gone over in 3 of 4. The over is 7-1 in Detroit’s last eight games as an underdog, and lately they have either been scoring or allowing a bunch of goals, and we think that will be the case again tonight.
|01-06-22||Sharks v. Sabres UNDER 6||Top||3-2||Win||100||6 h 21 m||Show|
San Jose has played a lot of over games recently, but thanks to that we are getting a fair number here on the under in what we expect should be a lower scoring game. Buffalo has gone over this total just twice in the last nine games. We think they will allow a couple goals here but we don’t see their offense doing too much today and they will have to rely on the defense if they want to be competitive here. These are two of the worst ranked offenses in the NHL for goals per game and we don’t see either team really breaking out here. Nice value on the under tonight as we don’t have to lay too much juice.
|01-04-22||Sharks v. Red Wings OVER 5.5||Top||2-6||Win||100||28 h 37 m||Show|
Both teams have been trending to the over, and we expect the offenses to rule the ice here again on Tuesday. San Jose has given up 5 or more goals in three of their last four matchups. Six of their last nine games have gone over the posted total. Detroit has gone over in 8 of 10. The Wings have been struggling lately and we see them giving up a bunch of goals in this one, and we will go with the hotter side as the Sharks have looked good on offense recently.
|10-29-21||Panthers v. Red Wings UNDER 6||3-2||Win||100||6 h 33 m||Show|
4-Unit Play. Take UNDER 6 (-110) - Florida/Detroit (Friday at 7pm)
We roll with the under here in this spot as we feel Florida is due for a letdown in one of their next couple of games after winning on Wednesday vs the Bruins. The Wings are a pesky team to play against and they come off a 3-2 win against Washington and four of their last 6 games have stayed under the posted total of 6 goals. I expect Florida to come in a little sleepy as they have to go to Boston on Saturday for a rematch with the Bruins. We see this a 3-1, 3-2 type hockey game that Detroit could very well win.
|10-20-21||Blues v. Golden Knights OVER 5.5||3-1||Loss||-119||10 h 49 m||Show|
4-Unit Play. Take OVER 5.5 - St. Louis/Vegas (-120) (Wednesday at 10pm)
As per your selection on the over, this is a great spot for both teams to continue scoring a bunch of goals. The Blues just came off an 11-goal thriller the other night and while we see the upside of the offense, the defense has given up 7 goals in two games played. I Don't expect that to change much against a good Vegas side who is coming off a 6-2 loss to the Kings. Both teams like to play a high-tempo game and we see chances being traded at both ends and we ultimately see this is a 3-3 OT game, or a 4-2 win for either team.
|10-12-21||Penguins v. Lightning UNDER 6||6-2||Loss||-125||8 h 59 m||Show|
3-Unit Play. Take UNDER 6 goals - Tampa/Pittsburgh (Tuesday at 7:30pm)
As per your selection on the UNDER in this spot, we feel this game is going to be a low scoring contest as both teams will want to ease themselves into the season and with what we've seen over the last few years, typically banner-raising nights are long and exhausting for the players and the play is really affected. Either way, you have Vasilevskiy in one net who is the best goalie in the league and a Pittsburgh team that has put a ton of emphasis on defense in the preseason. We expect a 3-2 type game in this one.
|07-07-21||Canadiens v. Lightning OVER 5||0-1||Loss||-135||3 h 52 m||Show|
4-Unit Play. Take Over 5 Goals (-130) - Montreal/Tampa Bay (Wednesday at 8pm)
This write up doesn't need to be very long. We've been on the over for the majority of the games here and we go right back to it after pushing in Game 4. The offensive firepower is too much on display and we see this game getting out of hand and the Bolts closing out this series by a big score.
|07-05-21||Lightning v. Canadiens OVER 5||2-3||Push||0||6 h 2 m||Show|
4-Unit Play. Take OVER 5 Goals (-125) - Montreal/Tampa Bay (Monday at 8pm)
As per your selection on the OVER, we are banking on Tampa winning this game due to Montreal's aggressiveness. The Habs have nothing left to lose as they are down 3-0 and we see them taking plenty of chances to win this game and we see Tampa hitting them back where it counts and that's on the scoreboard. Tampa's offense is great and with the chance to clinch the Cup, we see them coming out with a great effort and taking matters into their own hands. Look for this game to be played at an uptempo pace and we see a few late empty net goals to seal the deal for Tampa.
|06-30-21||Canadiens v. Lightning OVER 5||1-3||Loss||-120||8 h 29 m||Show|
4-Unit Play. Take Over in Tampa vs Montreal (Wednesday at 8pm)
As per your selection on the over, we hit the OVER in Game 1 and we go back to the well here. Tampa is just too good an offensive team to be contained and they broke out in a big way in Game 1, and we expect more of the same here today. The Habs are just a step too slow, and we see the Lightning dropping another four spot here tonight with the Canadians chipping in to help us cash the over.
|06-28-21||Canadiens v. Lightning OVER 5||1-5||Win||100||7 h 10 m||Show|
4-Unit Play. Take OVER in Montreal / Tampa Bay ( Monday at 8pm)
As per your selection on the OVER, we think both teams are going to come out and want to assert themselves in this very important Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Finals. We know how good both goalies are but we believe this game is going to be a more wide-open affair with plenty of chances and at least six goals. The Lightning were buzzing in their Game 7 win against the Islanders and they only managed 1 goal. We see a similar effort here but with a different result. Look for this game to end around 4-2.
|06-24-21||Golden Knights v. Canadiens UNDER 5||2-3||Push||0||9 h 44 m||Show|
3-Unit Play. Take Under in Montreal/ Vegas (Thursday at 8pm)
As per your selection, this is a great spot to take the under. Both teams have gotten to this point by playing good defensive hockey and taking advantage of the other team's mistakes. This is an elimination game so you can expect both teams to come out a little hesitant in this one and not want to be the first team to make a crucial mistake. Both goalies are good and the defensive game has been taking up another level. The Habs will continue to grind away and wear you down, while the Knights will try and play fast but that hasn't seemed to work so far this season. We expect a very low scoring game here and a 2-1 scoreline would not surprise me.
|06-23-21||Lightning v. Islanders UNDER 5||2-3||Push||0||9 h 39 m||Show|
3-Unit Play. Take Under in Tampa/New York (Wednesday at 8pm)
As per your selection on the under, we believe this series is all but over for the Islanders. They went off the rails in Game 5 and got blown out. They should show up and put up a fight in this contest, but Tampa has the upper hand and will be urgently looking to close out the series. Tampa Bay, in close out games, have won by a combined score of 6-0 and with the series on the line, we expect the defense and goaltending to come up big once again. The knee jerk reaction from Game 5 would be to take the over again, but we'll flip sides and bank on a low-scoring game in which the Isles play tight and safe in order to ensure they don't piss away the game on a mistake. Look for 2-1, 3-1 type of game.
|06-21-21||Islanders v. Lightning OVER 5||0-8||Win||100||9 h 42 m||Show|
3-Unit Play. Take OVER in - New York/Tampa Bay (Monday at 8pm)
As per your selection, we think this is a good spot for both teams to break out offensively in what is the pivotal game of the series. So far, the over has cashed in just once, but we see this game being a moe offensive affair that will include plenty of chances. We think the price is right on this one and we are happy to grab a 5 instead of a 5.5.
|06-15-21||Islanders v. Lightning OVER 5||2-4||Win||100||9 h 49 m||Show|
3-Unit Play. Take Over in New York/Tampa Bay (Tuesday at 8pm) Quick write up for this one, I see both teams breaking out in a big way offensively in this contest. The attacking fire power both teams have is too much for it to be contained in two straight games, so I'll take a shot at the over 5 in this contest at plus money.
|06-13-21||Islanders v. Lightning OVER 5.5||2-1||Loss||-100||2 h 33 m||Show|
3-Unit Play. Take Over 5.5 Goals (+125) - Tampa Bay vs New York (Sunday at 3pm)
As per your selection on the over 5.5 goals in this spot, we know both teams are sound defensively but typically the first games of these series are high scoring before teams settle in and make life miserable for each other. Each team has the talent offensively to put up a big number on any given night so we'll take a shot with the plus-money total here tonight.
|06-04-21||Canadiens v. Jets UNDER 5.5||1-0||Win||100||8 h 6 m||Show|
7-Unit Play. Take UNDER 5.5 (-125) - Montreal/Winnipeg (Friday at 7:38pm)
As per your selection on the UNDER in this contest, after a high scoring and bad-blooded Game 1, these two teams should settle down and get into a series of adjustments and adjusting to the adjustments. It's not every day you see Montreal put up 5 goals and Price allows three, so we are banking on it getting back to the norm here today. You know Winnipeg will need and want to be better defensively and without one of their best offensive players in the lineup, the defensive game must be sound because the extra boost of offense will not be there. As for Montreal, they should be feeling good about themselves, having won four straight games dating back to the last series, but the team should expect a more tight-checking game and this is where we believe the under comes into play. Carey Price and Connor Hellebuyck are two great goalies that played poorly in Game 1. Expect a bounce-back from both of them here today in a slow, chippy affair.
|05-11-21||Bruins v. Capitals UNDER 5.5||1-2||Win||102||8 h 30 m||Show|
4-Unit Play. Take UNDER 5.5 Goals - Washington vs Boston (Tuesday at 7pm)
As per your selection on the UNDER 5.5 goals in this Washington vs Boston game, we will keep the analysis short and sweet. These two teams are hooking up in the first round of the playoffs and this game is going to set the tone for the playoff series. Look for both teams to start finishing every hit and sending a message to the opponent that they aren't going to be pushed around. Boston has gone UNDER 5.5 in three of their last 5 while Washington is coming off a low-scoring 2-1 game vs Philly.
|04-19-21||Hurricanes v. Lightning UNDER 5.5||2-3||Win||100||8 h 10 m||Show|
3-Unit Play. No. 35/36. Take Under 5.5 in Tampa Bay/Carolina (Monday at 7 pm) As per your selection on the Under, these two teams tend to play each other tightly. In six games already this season the Under 5.5 has hit in four of those games and we see another tight and low scoring affair. Carolina has played to the under in six of their last eight games while Tampa has hit the under in two of their last four. Vasilevskiy let in four goals to the Hurricanes in the last game, so we see him stepping up his game in goal and shutting the door. Great spot to take the under here as a contrarian play.
|02-26-21||Bruins v. Rangers OVER 5.5||2-6||Win||100||8 h 18 m||Show|
4-Unit Play. No.23/24. Take Over in Boston/New York (Friday at 7pm) Great underdog winner last night with the Jets. Let's keep the momentum rolling. as per your selection on the over in this matchup, both teams come in off losses and we expect them to be eager to get back in the win column. Both teams have combined to go over the number in six of their last eight games and we see another open affair with plenty of chances and goals.
|02-22-21||Stars v. Panthers OVER 5.5||Top||1-3||Loss||-105||9 h 48 m||Show|
7-Unit Play. NO. 75/76. Take Over in Dallas vs Florida (Monday at 7pm) As per your selection on the over in this game between the Panthers and Stars, this sets up well for a high scoring game as you have a Dallas team that is coming off a lengthy layoff and will be fresh and eager to get on the ice and going in the right direction as they are on a five-game losing streak. The Stars have solid possession numbers and are second in the NHL in creating scoring chances. If they can get the special teams going, they can get on a roll here. As for Florida, you know what we are going to get with them. They are the fifth highest-scoring team in the NHL and second in shots on goal per game and have the sixth-best powerplay. their downfall is their 17th ranked GAA, 21st ranked SOG allowed and 17th ranked PK. The Panthers play some wild games and after getting bogged down by the Red Wings in a 2-1 loss on Saturday, we expect them to come out seeking blood. Great spot for the over in this matchup.
|02-05-21||Predators v. Panthers OVER 5.5||1-2||Loss||-125||8 h 35 m||Show|
4-Unit Play. Take Over in Nashville/Florida (Friday at 7pm) Look, this game flew way over the number yesterday as Nashville completed a 6-5 comeback with two goals late in the third period to force OT before winning it outright. These two teams played a very wide-open affair and I see tonight being no different. The Panthers are not going to wow you defensively and the Preds have momentum from yesterday and should be good for another three tonight. The Panthers are still the only team that's unbeaten in regulation and are still averaging nearly four goals per game. We got back up tendies in net for both squads tonight I believe, so this game ends at least with six goals.
|08-01-20||Canadiens v. Penguins OVER 5.5||3-2||Loss||-102||10 h 35 m||Show|
6-Unit Play. Take Over in Montreal vs Pittsburgh (Saturday @ 8:00 pm).
As per your selection on the over in tonight's game between Montreal and Pittsburgh, we believe Pittsburgh blitzes Montreal in this game which means the over is in play for Pittsburgh to cover on their own. Montreal looked like complete garbage in their tune-up against the Leafs, giving up odd-man rush after odd-man rush. I know it was just a scrimmage but against the firepower the Penguins have, if the Canadians are not tuned into the defensive side of the ice, they are going to be sent packing in three straight. We did see some good offensive things from the Canadians as they generated a bunch of good scoring chances and should be able to do the same against a Pens team that can be known to have lapses in their defensive zone. This game has 4-2 all over it and we are taking the over in this matchup.
|01-20-20||Panthers v. Wild UNDER 6.5||5-4||Loss||-110||9 h 6 m||Show|
4-Unit Play. #011/012. Take Under in Florida vs Minnesota (Monday @ 8:00 pm) As per your selection on the Under, you have two teams coming into this matchup playing some great hockey and on winning streaks. The wild have won 2 straight and outside a 7-0 win over Dallas in their last game (where they scored three PP goals), they've played under the total in six of their last eight games. The Wild play tight defense and we don't see that changing tonight on home ice. As for the Panthers, they come off a 4-1 win in Detroit and as they have to play a B2B tonight and tomorrow before the break, we don't see them being able to score four goals in this spot against a solid Wild team. The Under has hit in 4 of the Panthers last 5 road games and is 8-1 in their last 9 when their opponent gives up 2 goals or less in their previous game. The Wild love playing to the Under, as they are 7-2-1 to the under in their last 10 home games, and 14-4-3 to the under in their last 21 when scoring 5+ goals.
|12-07-19||Wild v. Hurricanes OVER 5.5||2-6||Win||100||8 h 41 m||Show|
4-Unit Play. #007/008. Take Over 5.5 Goals (-110) - Minnesota vs Carolina. (Saturday at 7:00 pm)
As per your selection on the over in this spot, we feel as if this is a great spot to ride the Wild's momentum and bank on them scoring a few goals against a Carolina team who has been inconsistent over their last handful of games. The Wild just put up five on a great Tampa team and have extended their win streak to five games. We see them bagging at least three more goals tonight while the Hurricanes will want to also put on a show for their home crowd and we see them bagging a few goals themselves tonight. We love the fact that this game is at 5.5 as we can easily see a 4-2 game. Let's get this win and add to our NHL totals this weekend!
|11-09-19||Golden Knights v. Capitals UNDER 6.5||2-5||Loss||-100||8 h 33 m||Show|
5-Unit Play. #070. Take Under in Goals - Vegas vs Washington (-110) (Friday at 7:05 pm). As per your selection on the Under here in this spot, we like both teams to really bring their A-game tonight in this showdown and when that happens generally the game tends to go under the number. Vegas is among the top-10 in terms of PK and goals allowed per game, while Washington is 6th on the PK and their ridiculous 13% shooting percentage simply can't be sustained. We also like the goaltending matchup in this one as we are getting both team's No.1 and Vegas has played to the under in two straight games. Great spot to go against the public here and take the under.
|10-10-19||Bruins v. Avalanche OVER 5.5||2-4||Win||100||10 h 46 m||Show|
5-Unit Play. #041/42. Take Over 5.5 Goals - Boston vs Colorado (Thursday at 9:00 pm).
As per your selection on the over in the game between the Bruins and Avs, we expect plenty of goals between these two teams as they very rarely play each other and so familiarity won't be an issue in this game. Look, after two straight games of scoring 3 goals in their first three games, the Bruins broke out for 4 goals against one of the better defensive teams in the league in Vegas. Now they get to keep the goals coming against a sloppy Colorado team who in fact can score goals, as shown by their 5 vs Calgary and 4 vs Minnesota. Both teams have plenty of offensive firepower to go around and we love the fact that we are getting this line at 5.5 instead of 6 or 6.5. This is easily going to be a 4-2 or 3-3 type of game with it going to overtime. Take the over and enjoy a nice hockey winner!
|10-05-19||Red Wings v. Predators OVER 5.5||5-3||Win||100||9 h 43 m||Show|
4-Unit Play. #063/064. Take Over 5.5 - Detroit vs Nashville (-120) (Saturday at 8:00 pm).
As per your selection on the Over in this game between Detroit and Nashville, we saw how quickly Nashville can turn it on offensive as they put in three quick goals in the third period on route to a 5-2 win over Minnesota. Now they get to face a Detroit team who is going to be among the worst teams in the league this year, so we expect another 4 goals out of Nashville last least in this spot. Detroit does have some nice pieces up front, so they can score goals, but we believe Nashville is going to be too quick and to strong for Detroit to overcome. We'd rather not lay the -240 with the Preds, but we expect this game to get over the 5.5 total and land somewhere around 7 or 8.
|05-29-19||Blues v. Bruins UNDER 5.5||3-2||Win||100||9 h 24 m||Show|
4-Unit Play. #003/004. Take Under in St. Louis vs Boston (Wednesday, May 29 at 8:08 p.m.). As per your selection on the Under 5.5 goals, the sportsbook caught on and decided to tack on the hook to the total. We do believe that at 5.5, the total is staying under the number simply due to the fact that the teams have already seen each other and they can make adjustments accordingly. With a total of 5, we are always going over, but we just don't see 6 goals being scored in this game as St. Louis will look to do a better job at preventing Boston from getting shots on goal, and Boston will continue to be a tough team to score against in any scenario. IT should be noted that after the first period of Game 1 the Blue allowed Boston to outshoot them 30-12. The Blues are in fact a good defensive team and we expect that number to be cut in half and we expect Binnington to stand tall in goal. We know what we are going to get from Tuukka this postseason as he has been lights out. We look for a 2-1 or 3-1 type game tonight as this crucial Game 2 could end up deciding the series.
|05-27-19||Blues v. Bruins OVER 5||2-4||Win||100||9 h 9 m||Show|
4-Unit Play. #001. Take Over in St. Louis vs Boston (Monday, May 27 at 8:08 p.m.) As per your selection on the over 5 goals, anytime we see a number set at 5, we will likely take the over as 3-2 is one of the most common final results in hockey, and even as such we don't mind the push. There is always an opportunity for an empty netter if we get to 3-2 at some point in the third so we like our chances. As per how these two teams stack up, they've both had plenty of time to rest up and we don't think that the time off will affect either team as this is the Cup Finals and if you're not ready to play Game 1, that could cost you the series. Both teams have great players and this could be a higher scoring series than many predict since both goalies are posting save %'s well above average. At some point that has to regress and it's not exactly much to ask for each team to score twice on their opponent. We believe we are going to see a 4-3 type game tonight, so we'll take our chances on the over.
|05-03-19||Islanders v. Hurricanes OVER 5||2-5||Win||100||8 h 28 m||Show|
3-Unit Play. #079. Take Over 5 Goals - New York Islanders vs Carolina (Friday, May 3 at 7:08 p.m.) As per your selection on the 'over' in this spot, we fully expect a big urgency game on behalf of the Islanders as their season is on the line and the only way they are going to stave off elimination is by finding their scoring touch. We know it's obvious to say they need to score more goals, but its the truth and their best players need to step up. The Islanders have been limited to just 3 goals in three games and so in this elimination game it's time to do the opposite of what they've done and generate more chances and play with a purpose. The Canes on the other hand have the benefit of playing at home again and they should be ready to end this series and as they are a team who generates the most shots on net in the league, they should have plenty of chances to put this game to bed. We love the fact that we have the empty netter scenario in play here, where in an elimination game, the Islanders could potentially pull the goalie early or several times trying to chase a goal that will get them closer or tie the game. The price is too good to pass up on the over and we expect at least 6 goals tonight.

3-Unit Play. #006. Take Under - Montreal vs Washington (Thursday, April 4 at 7:05 p.m.) As per your selection on the Under 6 Goals in the game between Montreal and Washington, we are going to bank on two good goalies and we believe that the situation surrounding this game makes for a tight checking affair. Look, the Habs have been playing playoff hockey for some time now. They are on the outside of the WildCard spots looking in but are still in the thick of it. They must win their two remaining games and get some help. In these situations, we look to the defensive side of the ice where team defense and good goaltending is how success is born. Carey Price has been lights out the last little bit and we believe he comes up to play in a big way and his teammates help him out by playing good team defense - they need to. Washington on the other hand, they don't mind a good defensive battle either. Five of their last seven games have been played to the under, and with them still needing two points to clinch the division title, we expect them to do everything in their power defensively from letting the title slip away. The Under is 8-1-2 in the Canadiens last 11 vs Metro division opponents and is 4-1 in their last 5 road games. The Caps have played to the under in 5 of their last 6 home games and the under has hit in 17 of the last 28 meetings in Washington (5 pushes).

4-Unit Play. #025/026. Take Under in Colorado vs Chicago (Friday, February 22 at 7:35 p.m.) We are going to side with the Under 7 in this spot as we believe both Colorado and Chicago played to the under on December 29th. Yes, I know, since then the Blackhawks are on a tear and seemingly play no defense as evident in their last 15 or so games. However, they are coming off an emotional win over Detroit and we believe they run into a bit of a lull tonight and simply won't be sharp. Their opponent, Colorado has played better of late as well, and a big reason for that is the goaltending play of Semyon Varlamov. Aside from the 7 goals they scored against Winnipeg (fluke), the Avs have played to the under 7 four times in their last 7 games with three pushes. We also like the fact that the head-to-head trends are on our side as the Under is 3-1-1 in the last 5 meetings in Chicago and 4-0-1 in the last 5 meetings overall. We will gladly take the under on the inflated number and enjoy a nice winner.

5-Unit Play. #73. Take Under in New York Rangers vs Buffalo (Friday, February 15 at 7:05 p.m.) As per your selection on the under in this game between the Rangers and Sabres, we like the fact that both goalies are playing hot right now. For the Rangers, you have Alexandar Georgiev who is coming off a 55 save win against the Leafs in his latest start. Prior to that, he stopped 27 of 30 in a win vs the Bruins and let in one goal in a loss vs the Flyers. He's on his game and we expect him to be able to keep it up against a Buffalo squad that is averaging not even three goals per game, and who has played in three consecutive games in which the scoreline was 3-1. The Sabres have been fading fast during the second part of the season, but one consistent has been their goaltending play and they are in a great spot to play on the under in tonight's game. The Under is 10-3 in the last 13 meetings between these two teams in Buffalo and 5-1-1 in the last 7 matchups overall. The Rangers have played to the under in 5 of their last 7 games vs the East and are 7-3 to the Under in their last 10 road games as an underdog of +110 -+150.

4-Unit Play. #013. Take Under in Calgary vs Washington (Friday, February 1 at 7:05 p.m.)
As per your selection on the under, we simply like to believe that the Washington Capitals are much better than their 7 game losing streak indicates. Look, I get it, teams go through slumps all the time, but when you give up 30 goals in their last 5 losses, that's a serious issue. However, the all-star break came at the right time and we believe that this team will come out focused and heavily committed to keeping the puck out of their own net. Not to mention, they will not have Alex Ovechkin in the lineup for this one as he sits out his one-game suspension for missing the All-Star game. That alone is worth at least one goal to the total. The Flames, on the other hand, is a better defensive team than they get credit for. While everyone talks about the offensive firepower, the flames are quietly fourth in shots on goal allowed and seventh in goals allowed at 2.8. After the lengthy all-star break, we've seen teams struggle to get going and we believe this will be the case here tonight. The Under has hit in 6 of the last 8 Capitals home games and is 19-5-5 in their last 29 home games vs a team with a winning road percentage of greater than .600.

4-Unit Play. #071. Take Under - Winnipeg vs Dallas (Saturday, January 19 at 7:05 p.m.).
As per this selection on the Under, we simply think Winnipeg will have a bit of a let down coming into this game after beating Nashville in their home barn. Look, when you think of the Jets, you generally think of taking the over, but we don't expect that to be the case tonight. They are getting superb goaltending of late, and when that happens, teams are very unlikely to light the lamp early or often. The Jets sit 6th in the NHL in goals allowed and have a top-10 PK. Their opponent, Dallas, sit 4th in the NHL in goals allowed and also have a top-10 PK, not to mention the Stars rank 29th in goals for at just 2.54. From a scheduling perspective, this is also Winnipeg's last game before the all-star break, so it's easy to believe they have one foot out the door for their 10-day break. The Stars meanwhile simply cannot score. They've lost the last four games and these were their scoreline; 2-1, 2-0, 3-1, 2-1. They've gone 5-0-1 under the posted total of 6, so we see no reason why that trend can't continue. The Stars are 5-0-1 to the Under when playing on 1 days rest, 4-0 to the under in their last 4 home games and 4-1 to the under when their opponent scores 5 or more goals in their previous game. Let's bank on these trends and enjoy a nice bounce-back winner.
|01-15-19||Kings v. Wild OVER 5.5||2-3||Loss||-100||9 h 49 m||Show|
7-Unit Play. #014. Take Over in Los Angeles vs Minnesota (Tuesday, January 15 at 8:05 p.m.)
As per this selection on the over, something is clearly wrong with this Minnesota Wild team. They were embarrassed on home ice by Detroit, and their coach called them out. They then proceeded to give up 7 goals to a Flyers team that is averaging 2 goals per game. Now they have to return home to play on back-to-backs against a Kings team that is playing decent hockey of late. If you look at these two teams, you will see two middling defensive teams. One of them has a terrible PK, while the other has a top 10 PP, and then vice-versa. This is also a great play on spot to the over, as the Over has hit in 4 of the Kings last 6 games when their opponent gives up 5 or more goals in their previous game, and it's also hit in 6 of the last 8 meetings between these two teams. I've watched both Minnesota games over the last few days and as I said, something is wrong with this team defensively. The Kings do have a few players that can put the puck in the net, but they aren't as good defensively as you would think. This is an opportune time to take advantage of a total that sits at 5.5. One would think a bounce-back performance is coming for Minnesota defensively, but not yet. The schedule doesn't allow for that, as Minnesota should be on their toes ready to go for this game.

4-Unit Play. #067. Take Under - Tampa Bay vs New York Islanders (Sunday, January 13 at 7:05p.m.).
As per this selection on the under here, this is a bit of a contrarian play given the recent run of both teams. Tampa has played to the over in 8 of the last 12 games, but we feel that playing in their second game of a back-to-back after traveling will catch up with them tonight. This is also their third game in four nights, and the fourth game in six nights. I've watched enough NHL in my day to know that heading to the Island for a Sunday matchup is a tough spot. The Islanders, on the other hand, have are one of the best defensive teams in the league (weird, I know) giving up just 2.64 goals per game which are ranked third. They also don't generate too many chances, as they rank 28th in shots on goal with 28.3. The Islanders have stayed under the number 4 times in their last 7 games, and they are in a great under spot here, as the Under is 4-0 in their last 4 games while playing on 0 days rest. The under is also 8-2-1 in their last 11 after allowing 2 goals or less in their previous game, and 15-5-1 in their last 21 Sunday games. We know that Tampa is the better team in this matchup, but we simply think two good goalies will shut the door and it will be a very boring matchup.

4-Unit Play. #069. Take Under 6 - New Jersey vs Arizona (Friday, January 4 at 9:05p.m.)
As per this selection on the under, we just don't see where the goals are going to come from. The Devils are missing their best player in Taylor Hall and despite going over the total two nights ago against Dallas, they've played to the under 4 of their last 6 games prior to that. We like the fact that the Devils rank 18th in PP% and will be going up against the first ranked PK in the league. We doubt they find a way to score a PP goal in this one. Not to mention, the Devils own PK is ranked third in the league, and that will be going up against the 22nd ranked PP in the league, so special teams won't be so special in this one. Arizona has played to the under in three of their last four games and in those three games, they've managed just one goal. We can fully see that happening again tonight as they are still without several key pieces throughout the lineup. The Yotes are 4-1 to the under in their last 5 vs the East and 8-2 in their last 10 vs a team with a winning % below .400. We just don't see where goals will come from in this spot, and we like the fact that the total sits at an even 6 instead of 5.5. Take a shot with the under here.

4-Unit Play. #079. Take Under in Tampa Bay vs Vancouver (Tuesday, December 18 at 10:05p.m.).
As per your selection on the Under 6.5 goals, you have two teams that have been playing to the over in their most recent games. However, this high line and the fact that we will see two excellent goalies between the pipes tonight tells me that this line is extremely inflated and the under is the play. Look, Tampa is known for scoring goals. But they are also known for their excellent defensive work and their ability to minimize the opposing team's chances. Now that they have their No.1 goalie back between the pipes in Vasilevsky, the Lightning will have the goaltending advantage on most nights. The Canucks, however, will counter with Markstrom and he is no joke either. He has a GAA of just 3, with a save percentage of just over .900. Over his last 4 games, Markstrom has given up just 6 goals against, which tells me that the team s playing well infant of him and he is started to round into form. These two teams are in great spots to play to the under tonight as the Lightning are 7-2-2 to the Under in their last 11 after allowing 5 or more goals in their previous game, and they are 5-2 to the under in their last 7 vs the Pacific. The Canucks are 5-1 to the Under in their last 6 Tuesday games, and 4-1 to the under in their last 5 vs the East. Two good goalies, with a high line - give me the under.

7-Unit Play. #032. Take Under in New Jersey vs Nashville (Saturday, December 15 at 8:05 p.m.).
As per your selection on the Under, it almost feels like Christmas came a week early. You have two teams that generally play to the ?over?, which is they the line is 6.5, but it almost feels like the line hasn't accounted for the Devils playing on back-to-back nights or the fact that the Predators are still banged up offensively, and are among the best teams in the league defensively. Look, I get the fact that these two teams are coming off 5-4 and 4-3 games respectively, but the situation tonight makes me believe this will be more like a 3-1 style of game. The Under has hit in the Preds last 5 games vs the Eastern Conference, and it has also hit in 8 of the Preds last 10 games when their opponent scores 5 or more goals in their previous game. The Predators know what it takes to shut down the opposing team's top line and we believe Taylor Hall is still out again through illness, so it'll make their job a hell of a lot easier, not having to contain the reigning Hart Trophy winner. Take the Under in this spot and enjoy a nice winner.

7-Unit Play. #019. Take Under 6 - Nashville vs Calgary (Saturday, December 8, 10:05 p.m.)
As per this selection on the ?Under?, now is a great time to ride the hot hand of Calgary goalie Mike Smith. Smith has won his last 5 starts after being just brutal in the opening month and a bit of the season, and he's going to need to be great again tonight to give Calgary a real chance at two points. However, Calgary is missing three key cogs of their lineup and after an emotional win last time out against Minny (2-0), it'll be tough for them to replicate that emotion and give it their all here in this spot. They will be without their Captain Giordano and one of their offensive stars in Backlund. But Nashville will not feel sorry for them. They too are without four stars in their lineup, with Forsberg, Turris, Subban, and Arvidsson all out for lengthy periods of time. Nashville gave up 5 goals last time out to Vancouver, and we expect a team as battle-tested as the Preds to bounce back in a big way and focus all their efforts on the defensive side of the puck. If we take away that 5 goal outburst by Vancouver, Pekka Rinne had given up just 3 goals in his previous two starts. We believe Rinne and Smith will steal the show tonight and this will be another low scoring, slug it out type matchup. The Under is 14-3-1 in the Preds last 18 after allowing 5 goals or more in their previous game, while the Under is also 12-5 in the Flames last 15 when their opponent allows 5 or more goals.

4-Unit Play. #071. Take Over in Calgary vs Los Angeles (Saturday, November 10 @ 10:05p.m.)
The Calgary Flames are coming off a loss to the Anaheim Ducks, but in reality, we knew and they knew they would lose that game considering they only have one win in Anaheim in 30 something tries. Now they must shift their focus to a Kings team that will be eager to get back in the win column after having their two-game winning streak snapped by Minnesota. Look, the reality of the matter is that these two teams are trending in the wrong direction once again this season. The Kings are3-8 in their last 11 games while the Flames had their four-game winning streak snapped. The Flames have played to the over twice in their last three games, while the Kings are 0-3 O/U in the same span. However, the Kings haven't played a team as offensively gifted as the Flames and as defensively careless as them as well. We expect this game to be a free-flowing hockey game. Both teams are rested and we will look to exploit the shaky goalie matchup between Mike Smith and Jack Campbell, both of whom constantly look shaky and look like their fighting the puck in the net. The flames are 6-2 to the over in their last 8 vs a team with a losing record and 5-0 in their last 5 games after scoring 2 goals or less in their previous game. The Kings are 11-3-1 to the over in their last 15 Saturday games. It's slim pickings on the NHL card tonight, but we believe this is the best spot.
|11-04-18||Sabres v. Rangers UNDER 6||1-3||Win||100||8 h 37 m||Show|
6-Unit Play. #053. Take Under 6 - Buffalo vs New York (Sunday November 4 @ 7:05p.m.)
When you look at the Sabres past results, you'll likely see that big fat 9-spot they posted last night against Ottawa and think this team is good offensively. Well, you're wrong. The Sabres are ranked 20th in goals per game, and that is aided by last night's 9 goal outburst. In their first 14 games this year, the Sabres have played in games that have scored 6 goals or less in 10 of them. Only 4 times have games gone over 6, and we are comfortable with taking the under in this spot for a few reasons. It's highly unlikely that the Sabres will continue to score at that pace. Typically when a team puts up a high number, they are held in check the following game, especially on back-to-backs. They will also be shooting against Lundqvist, who is better than Anderson and McKenna put together. Furthermore, the Rangers are returning home from a four-game road trip which they stayed under the total of 6 in twice. The first game home after a roadie is usually slow and sluggish, and in the eastern conference, these affairs are typically quite boring. The Rangers also struggle to score goals, averaging just 2.46 per game which is good enough for 28th. They don't have a very good power play, or shooting percentage as well, so this game will likely be a neutral-zone battle with very few chances and stoppages. Would I rather have the 6.5 Total? Sure, but I believe this game stays under 6, and we are looking at a 3-1 or 3-2 type game. The under is 5-1 in the Rangers last 6 home games and 4-1-1 in the last 6 meetings between these two teams.
|10-25-18||Flyers v. Bruins OVER 5.5||0-3||Loss||-110||8 h 16 m||Show|
7-Unit Play. #055. Take Over in Philadelphia vs Boston (Thursday, October 25 @ 7:05p.m.) When you think of the Flyers the first thing that comes to mind is poor goaltending. They haven't had a legitimate No.1 since Ron Hextall protected the net and as is such, they haven't tasted much playoff success. In this spot, against the Bruins, the Flyers come into the game after mustering only 1 goal on 38 shots against Colorado. Most of that game was played in the Colorado zone, so when that happens a team loses 4-1 (with an empty net goal), the goaltending is the issue. And we do not see that issue getting fixed against one of the best teams in the league and arguably the best line in the NHL in Bergeron/Marchand/Pastrnak. Prior to last game, the Flyers had played three-straight to the over and we will bank on that trend continuing. The Bruins have the offensive firepower to score 5 on any given night, and as is such, they put 4 past Ottawa to get back in the win column to end a 4-game road trip, and will want to play well in front of their home crowd, where they are 3-0 and have scored a combined 18 goals. Goaltending wise, Tuukka Rask has been better of late, but he's still hovering at a GAA above 3, and a save % just a tick over .900. The Bruins have played to the over in 14 of their last 21 games after allowing 2 goals or less, and 14 of their last 22 home games. While the Flyers are 6-0-2 to the over in their last 8 road games and 3-0-1 after scoring 2 goals or less. The 5.5 total is simply too low for these two teams.

4-Unit Play. #005. Take Under in Tampa Bay vs Colorado (Wednesday, October 24 @ 9:35p.m.)
Nice bounce-back winner yesterday on Chicago to get the job done over Anaheim. We will keep the momentum going and get this hockey season turned around in a hurry.
Don't look now, but the Tampa Bay Lightning are 5-1-1. Has any team had a quieter 5-1-1 start than the Lightning? After playing one game and then resting for a week, Tampa has gotten into the swing of things, by reeling off 4 wins in their last 5 games, with their only loss coming in overtime to Minnesota. Over the last two games, the offense has found it's groove, scoring 10 times, but the defensive side of the puck has struggled, giving up 8. In this spot, against a Colorado team that is playing in their first home game after a lengthy (and successful) road trip, we believe the Lightning will clamp down and revert back to the defensive team we know them to be. Look, this game will feature two of the best goalies in the game, in Vasilevskiy and Varlamov. Both goalies are on fire right now, with Vasilevskiy posting a 2.16 GAA and a .933 save % and Varlamov posting a 1.64 GAA with a .953 save%. Those numbers may not be sustainable over the course of the season, but right now, they are the kind of numbers you want when taking the under. Look, Colorado has played well lately, winning three in a row, but the under has hit in the team's last two games. They played in Philly on Tuesday, now must travel home, get their things in order and take on a Tampa team that has been there waiting for them. This is the game Tampa gets the defense on track and Colorado won't have enough gas left in the tank to muster much. The under is 7-1-2 in TB's last 10 games following a win, while the Under has hit in 4 of the last 5 Avalanche home games.

4-Unit Play. #051. Take Under Goals Florida vs Washington (Friday, October 19 @ 7:05p.m.)
It's very hard to win road games in the NHL. The Panthers are learning that lesson pretty quickly. They outplayed and outshot Tampa in their opening game, and lost in a shootout, and in their latest road setback, they scored five goals and still managed to lose 6-5 in a shootout. There is a very low likelihood of the Panthers putting up another batch of goals on the road against a Washington team that has one of the better goalies in the league in Braden Holtby. Holtby is coming off a solid 29 save performance against the Rangers and he will be looking to improve on his stats and lower his GAA of 3.18 and improve his SV% of .898. Not to mention, Holtby is 10-2-1 with a 2.36 GAA and a .920 save percentage against the Panthers. We know what we are going to get with Washington from an offensive standpoint. Most things go through Alex Ovechkin and that's fine. Ovie potted a pair in the last game, so we don't see him doing the same tonight. From a defensive perspective from Florida, James Reimer will need to play better if the Panthers want to stay close to the teams above them while Luongo is out. Reimer has had success against Washington before, going 4-4-2 with a 2.16 GAA and a .937 save percentage. The Under is 6-0 in the Panthers last 6 games after giving up more than 5 goals and the Under is 6-1-1 in the Caps last 8 games when their opponent scores more than 5 goals in their previous game.

4-Unit Play. #051. Under in Dallas vs Ottawa (Monday, October 15 @ 7:35p.m.)
It's been a rather bizarre season for the Ottawa Senators so far. They were pegged to be one of the worst teams in the league and despite injuries, have gotten off to a 2-2-1 start, beating good teams like Toronto and LA. They've also scored and given up a lot of goals, which the goals for surprises me - the goals against not so much. Now they come into this game against a Dallas team who are playing their first road game of the season after opening the season 3-1 at home. Typically when you play your first road game, you tend to tense up a bit and play more cautiously and try not to give the opponent too much room to maneuver. That's why we believe the under is the play in this spot. Look, Dallas has given up 10 goals over their last two games. They have a defensive unit and goalie who are much better than that, and against a young Senator's squad, who is mired in injuries, we like this game to be a low scoring - quiet affair. The Sens also played well defensively last time out, limiting the Kings to just one goal. They could use that momentum in a positive way in this one. Look for this one to stay under the number - just like it has in four of the last 5 meetings between these two teams and 8 of the last 13 meetings in Ottawa (with two pushes).
|10-11-18||Blackhawks v. Wild UNDER 6||3-4||Loss||-104||9 h 8 m||Show|
4-Unit Play. #023. Take Under 6 (-110) Chicago vs Minnesota (Thursday, October 11 @ 8:05p.m.) Sooner or later the Blackhawks goal-scoring spree is going to end. The Blackhawks have scored 4, 5, and 6 goals in their first three games, winning two of those. It's like they think they are playing in the 80's. Well, I believe that stops tonight against a Wild team that has given up just 5 regulation goals in two games. The Wild are predicated on defense first and with a goalie in Devin Dubynk who is leading the league in save % and adjusted goals allowed, the Blackhawks may find their scoring ways hard to keep up. Not to mention, the Wild have only scored 2 goals in those two games, one of the lowest scoring teams in the league so far. With Chicago having extra time to prepare for this game (3 days off), the defensive zone coverage and assignments should be much crisper and they should be able to limit Minnesota to just a few quality chances. Historically speaking, when these two teams meet, they like to play to the under - which has hit in the last 4 meetings. Not to mention, the Under is 6-1 in the Wilds last 7 vs the Central and 4-0 when playing on 3 or more days rest. Also, the Blackhawks have gone under 7 times in their last 10 games after scoring 5 or moral goals in their previous game. The oddsmakers are adjusting this line based on all the scoring that's taken place so far this season, but we won't be fooled. Take the under.

7-Unit Play. #007. Take Under in Calgary vs Nashville (Tuesday, October 9 @ 8:00p.m.)
Nice 4-Unit winner last night. Let's keep the momentum going and cash another ticket.
It's been a wild ride to open the season for the Calgary Flames. They split two games against Vancouver, losing 5-2 and then winning 7-4. The Flames are what we expect them to be and that's just ?mediocre? on both ends of the ice. Now they must go to Nashville - a place where they are 6-1 SU in the last 7 games. However, this Nashville team is different. They are predicated on defense and may have the best defensive unit in the entire league. Not to mention one of the best goalies in the league in Pekka Rinne. This is also Nashville's home opener, so nothing is going to come easy for Calgary as Nashville will be hungry to get two points for their home fans and keep their unblemished record intact. Nashville has also played two games - posting a 1-1 record on the total. We expect a more physical game in this spot as both these two teams don't really like each other and that stems over from last year's season series. The Under is 3-1-1 in the Flames last 5 after scoring 5 or more goals in their previous game, while the under is 4-0 when their opponent scores at least 5 in their previous game. Nashville has been one of the better under teams in the NHL, so in this spot, we are expecting a low-scoring game.

3-Unit Play. #55. Take Over in Vegas vs Buffalo (Monday, October 8 @ 3:05p.m.)
The Buffalo Sabres got more than just a win last time out against the New York Rangers. They got the fans back on their side after getting booed off the ice in the season-opening period against Boston. Now the Sabres look to keep the momentum going and will be eager to put up another batch of goals against a Vegas team that is going to fatigued due to their travels. Vegas has a 1-1 O/U record, but against Philly a team with talent, they gave up 5 goals. We expect the Sabres to be able to take advantage of a this Vegas unit and put up at least 4 goals in this spot. However, the Sabres are still the Sabres defensively, so look for Vegas to counter with a couple of their own, thus giving us over 5.5 goals. The Golden Knights are 5-2 to the over in the last 7 vs the Eastern Conference while the Sabres are6-2 in their last 8 overall.

It's a battle of backup goalies as the Rangers head to Carolina for a matchup with the Hurricanes. The Rangers have lost their first two games and have scored just 3 total goals. Coming into this year, the Rangers were facing rebuild of sorts, and we've seen the effects of it. Lack of firepower and lack of scoring kept each of the first two games under the total. The Hurricanes have also struggled to score goals, posting just 4 in their first two games. They've struggled for the last couple of seasons to score goals consistently and tonight against a backup goalie won't solve their problems. While backup goalies may not be the most reliable, they are still NHL quality tenders and the inflated line in this spot gives us value to the under. Not to mention, the Rangers are playing their second game in as many nights, so fatigue may play a factor. The under has hit in the Rangers last 4 overall and is 5-1 in their last 6 road games. Meanwhile, the Hurricanes have played to the under in 6 of their last 7 and 6 of their last 7 vs the East.

3-unit Play Take #6 Washington Capitals/Tampa Bay Lightning UNDER (7:15pm EST) Big Game 5 tonight in Tampa with the series tied at two games to a side. While it's felt like there have been a ton of goals in this series, only one game has went over the total. These teams are starting to learn each other's tendencies and I think we're going to see less premium scoring chances in today's game. I don't think this game will reach seven goals, so we're on the UNDER.

4-unit Play Take #53 Winnipeg Jets/Nashville Predators OVER 5.5 (+110) (8:05pm EST) This is what the Stanley Cup Playoffs are all about. Game 7 in Nashville between the Jets and Predators. Winner advances to the Western Conference Finals against Vegas and the loser goes home. This has been a fantastic series from a viewing standpoint. Part of the reason is the volume of scoring chances that each team has been able to create. We've seen an average of 67 shots on goal per game and plenty of high-danger scoring chances. The average goals per game has been 6.7 through the first six contests. I don't expect Game 7 to be any different. There's also a high likelihood of an empty net goal or two tonight. Teams are going to be aggressive in pulling their goalie out of the net if they're done late since this is an elimination game for both teams. Plenty of reasons to love the OVER in this one.

4-unit Play Take #65 Vegas Golden Knights/San Jose Sharks OVER 5.5 (+110) (7:35pm EST) Tonight is Game 6 in San Jose between the Knights and Sharks. Every game in this series has gone easily over the total except for one and there's no reason to believe that Game 6 will be any different. These teams have averaged 6.6 goals per game in the series and there have been plenty of quality scoring chances on both sides. Also take into account that both goalies have made sensational, which means scoring could have been even higher. There's still plus odds on the OVER and that's too good to pass up.

10-unit Play Take #57 Vegas Golden Knights/San Jose Sharks OVER (10:05pm EST) NHL PLAYOFF GAME OF THE YEAR. Linesmakers are sometimes slow to adjust and this is clearly one of those cases. Each of the three games in this series has seen seven goals scored. The totals were 5, 5.5 and 5.5 for those games. Even more telling, the number of premium scoring chances has been off the charts. If Marc-Andre Fleury was actually human, the Sharks have at least three or four more goals in this series. This is a huge game for San Jose and they were great in the first period in Game 3. I expect them to come out aggressive again and set the pace for another up and down game. The total on this one should at least be six goals and a half goal difference is huge for a total. Play the OVER in our big NHL playoff total of the year tonight.

4-unit Play Take #17 Vegas Golden Knights/San Jose Sharks OVER (10:05pm EST) We cashed in on the OVER in Games 1 and 2 of this series, and I don't see any reason to jump off the bandwagon for Game 3. This series has featured a ton of great scoring chances on both ends. We've also seen quite a few power plays due to the chippiness of both teams. Both goaltenders were excellent in the first round, but they are showing that they're both human as well in the second round. Play the OVER in Game 3 in San Jose.

4-unit Play Take #89 San Jose Sharks/Vegas Golden Knights OVER (8:05pm EST) It's difficult to understand this line. The linesmaker and betting markets clearly got the Game 1 total wrong when they opened in near five flat. They moved it to 5.5 for Game 2, but it's juiced heavily towards the under. The Sharks and Knights both like to use their speed and create a high volume of scoring chances. This is going to be a finesse series, unlike the matchup for both of these teams in round one. I think we could see seven goals again like we did in Game 1. Maybe this time the Sharks will actually chip in a little bit. Play the OVER.
|04-26-18||Sharks v. Golden Knights OVER 5||0-7||Win||100||10 h 38 m||Show|
6-unit Play Take #81 San Jose Sharks/Vegas Golden Knights OVER 5 (+105) (10:05pm EST) It's been eight days since the Sharks last took the ice and nine days for the Knights. That's about as long as a layoff as you'll see in the postseason, so I expect some things to change from what we saw in round one. For the Sharks, it was all about Martin Jones. He stopped 128 of the 132 shots on goal (a .970 save percentage) for a 1.00 goals against average. Goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury was even better for Vegas. Fleury stopped 127 of the 130 shots (a .977 save percentage) he faced for a 0.75 goals against average. Those numbers are insanely good, but don't expect to see it in Game 1 tonight. With the long layoff, I expect a little bit of goaltender rust. In addition, the Sharks and Knights were both engaged in very physical first round series against the Ducks and Kings. That had more to do with the Ducks and Kings than the Sharks and Knights. I expect a much more wide-open finesse type of style being played in this series. That should lead to some better scoring chances overall. Play the OVER in Game 1.

8-unit Play Take #72 St. Louis Blues/Colorado Avalanche UNDER (9:05pm EST) The playoffs are on the line tonight in Colorado as the Avalanche hosts the Blues. These two teams have been neck and neck down the stretch to grab that last playoff spot in the Western Conference and now they square off in a virtual one-game playoff to decide who earns that final spot. The intensity will be high and I don't expect to see too many great scoring opportunities. In reviewing the shot totals for these two teams in recent weeks, both teams have seen a decrease in their scoring chances on both ends of the ice. I wouldn't be surprised if this game ends up being a 1-0 and 2-1 type of battle. We are on the UNDER in our NHL Total of the Year.

4-unit Play Take #58 Boston Bruins/Tampa Bay Lightning UNDER 6 (-120) (7:35pm EST) Another big game tonight between the Bruins and Lightning. These two teams met in Boston where the Bruins won 4-2 and took control of the Atlantic Division. The Lightning have the chance to even things up in the division with a win tonight, this time in Tampa. I expect another playoff-type atmosphere. The last matchup only featured 58 shots on goal between these two. If we see that again, there's a good chance we go UNDER the total. I like the UNDER tonight.

4-unit Play Take #12 Colorado Avalanche/Los Angeles Kings UNDER 5.5 (10:35pm EST) The matchup between the Avs and Kings tonight will have a playoff-like atmosphere. Both teams are amongst a group of four fighting four for the last three playoff spots in the Western Conference. Someone is going to be left out, so these last few contests are enormous. The Kings have been playing lower scoring affairs of late, with six of their last nine going under the total. Colorado has seen four straight contests go under the total and only one of their last 10 games have gone over. I see a 3-1 or 3-2 type of contest tonight in Los Angeles. Play the UNDER.

4-unit Play Take #68 Calgary Flames/Los Angeles Kings UNDER 5.5 (-125) (10:35pm EST) The Calgary Flames have effectively ended their chances at the postseason with five straight losses. They've been horrible on both ends of the ice lately, but scoring has been particularly tough for the Flames over the last couple of weeks. Over their last nine games, Calgary is averaging 1.33 goals per game. It's hard to imagine things are going to improve tonight in Los Angeles against a stingy Kings defense. Los Angles hasn't allowed more than three goals over their last six contests. This is their first game back after a short four-game road trip. I don't expect many scoring chances, so we're on the UNDER here.

4-unit Play Take #6 Boston Bruins/St. Louis Blues UNDER (8:05pm EST) Today's game between the Boston Bruins and St. Louis Blues is marred by some big injuries. Boston is without three of its best players in Patrice Bergeron, Zdeno Chara and David Backes. The Blues are missing dynamic winger Vladmir Tarasenko. That's going to cut down on the premium scoring chances for both teams, and I don't think it's fully reflected in the betting total. This line should be at five, or heavily juice to the UNDER at 5.5. As a result, we're gladly take the UNDER here.

4-unit Play Take #70 Vancouver Canucks/Vegas Golden Knights UNDER (10:05pm EST) The Vegas Golden Knights have had a record-breaking season as an expansion team. They've led the Pacific Division for nearly the entire season and have a lot to be proud of as a franchise. Lately, however, they haven't been very good on the ice. Injuries and fatigue may be setting in for the Knights at this point. They play an extremely aggressive style and it may have finally caught up with them. They haven't been scoring the puck at the same rate as they did earlier in the season and it's led to some tough outcomes of late. Tonight they host the Vancouver Canucks and they come in with a six-game losing streak. Offense has the been the problem as the Canucks are averaging just 1.00 goal per game during this stretch. I expect the game tonight to go UNDER the total.

I expect a playoff-type atmosphere tonight in Winnipeg. Both of these teams have been sputtering a bit in recent weeks, but the defense has been tightening up. Winnipeg games have gone UNDER in six of the last seven games. For Dallas, six of the last eight games have gone UNDER the total. I expect this game to play out very similar, with few premium scoring chances for each team. Play UNDER the total in this matchup.

Both teams are hanging on for dear life in the Eastern Conference playoff race, separated by just two points with the Devils just a point behind. Six of the last eight Flyers' games have gone UNDER the game total as they've turned up the heat on defense lately. This game is going to have some major intensity going for it, so I like this one to go UNDER the total as well.

4-unit Play Take #4 New York Islanders/Calgary Flames UNDER (7:05pm EST) The New York Islanders have lost eight straight contests, but it's not for lack of trying. Four of those losses were in overtime and the Isles have improved tremendously defensively over the last few weeks. Eight of their last 12 games have gone UNDER the total. Goaltenders Christopher Gibson and Jaroslav Halak have stepped up their games in the net as well for New York. Tonight they head to Calgary to take on the Flames. Calgary has been a higher-scoring team most of the year, but they've played in some tight, low-scoring games of late as well. I think this one plays out that way as well, so we're on the UNDER at the big number.

5-unit Play Take #6 Anaheim Ducks/Dallas Stars UNDER 5.5 (-130) (8:35pm EST) Big game tonight in Dallas as the Stars host the Ducks. Both of these teams would be in the playoffs if the season ended today, but not by much. There are several teams nipping at their heels, and with only 14 games remaining in the regular season, every game is huge. Both clubs are coming off of losses to the Predators in their last game. I think Anaheim and Dallas may be a little gassed for this game. It's the fourth game in six nights for the Ducks (and second leg of a back-to-back), and the Stars have played three overtime games in their last four contests. It's going to feel like a playoff-like atmosphere in this game and I think goals are going to be tougher to come by. The UNDER is 10-3 in the last 13 games for the Ducks. The UNDER is 6-2 in the last eight games for the Stars. This should be a fun game, but I like the UNDER in our NHL Game of the Week.

3-unit Play Take #68 Carolina Hurricanes/Chicago Blackhawks OVER 5.5 (-115) (8:35pm EST) The Chicago Blackhawks are in unfamiliar territory. They're sitting in the cellar of the Central Division and have been getting worse as the season has progressed. Losing goalie Corey Crawford was a bigger blow than anyone could have imagined, and that's because backups Anton Forsberg, Jeff Glass and Jean-Francois Berube have struggled. Chicago also has several aging defensemen on the roster. As a result, we've been seeing the Hawks go OVER the total a lot recently. In their last three games, Hawks' games have yielded 6.67 goals per game. Carolina comes in losing eight of 10 and their season is over as well. We may see them opening it up a little more and getting some younger players in the fold. I like the OVER in this game.

The OVER is 39-24 in Islander games this season overall. However, the trend has started to change of late. Seven of the last 10 games have went UNDER the total for the Islanders. They are getting much better goalie play and the defense has clamped down in a big way. Tonight the Islanders are in Vancouver to go up against the Canucks. Vancouver has had problems scoring this season, as they rank 23rd in goals per game with just 2.71. The Sedin twins are slowing down and they just don't have the firepower they once did. Six is a high total and I like our chances of staying UNDER the total tonight.

The Isles have started to pick things up on the defensive end and they've gotten some superb efforts from the goaltenders lately. Five of their last seven games have went UNDER the total and most of those were easy winners. Tonight the Islanders go to Montreal to take on the Canadiens. The Habs have played into overtime in three of their last four contests, so they could be a bit gassed tonight. While that could sometimes lead to poor defensive effort, I don't think that will be the case tonight. Take the UNDER in this one.

No team has allowed more goals than the Islanders have this season. Surprisingly, the Isles are also third in the NHL in goals scored. They love playing high-scoring affairs and the opponent doesn't seem to matter. OVERS are 34-17 in Islanders' games this season overall. I see more of the same in this one.

4-unit Play Take #51 Pittsburgh Penguins/New York Islanders OVER 6 (-110) (7:05pm EST) The Pittsburgh Penguins offense has been sputtering of late. They were shutout for just the second time all season last night versus Carolina and have scored just 12 goals over their last six games. Tonight, however, they should find a remedy for their offensive woes - the New York Islanders. The season has gone off the rails for the Isles recently. They've dropped 12 of 17 and their defense has been fully to blame. In their last four games alone, New York has given up 21 goals. The goaltending has been very poor, defenders have been out of position and there have just been some boneheaded plays all around defensively. This one should get OVER the total.

3-unit Play Take #51 St. Louis Blues/Winnipeg Jets OVER (6:05pm EST) These two teams played last night in St. Louis where the Blues won 2-0. That final score was extremely misleading however. Blues backup goaltender Carter Hutton stopped all 48 shots he saw from the Jets in what was likely the best game of his career. Winnipeg backup goalie Steve Mason wasn't that bad either, stopping 28 of the 30 shots on goal. The starting goaltenders will be back in net tonight for this one. And if we get 78 shots on goal again today, we should have no problem going OVER the total.

4-unit Play Take #57 Toronto Maple Leafs/Detroit Red Wings UNDER 5.5 (-110) (7:35pm EST) We hit an easy winner on the UNDER in the Toronto game last night in our NHL Game of the Week. We like the UNDER again tonight for many of the same reasons. The Leafs have a renewed focus on defense under head coach Mike Babcock. They've been better at limiting high quality chances by opponents, while sacrificing a little bit on the offensive end. Toronto is also without top playmaker Auston Matthews, who is the engine for the offense and one of the elite players in the league. Detroit comes in off of two straight overtime games, so I'm not sure how much juice they'll have in the tank tonight. This one all adds up to a low scoring affair. Play the UNDER.

4-unit Play Take Minnesota Wild/Anaheim Ducks UNDER (10:05pm EST) The Anaheim Ducks are still missing Ryan Getzlaf and Ryan Kesler, along with Patrick Eaves. Those are all big contributors on offense and it's made goals hard to come by for the Ducks. Jakob Silfverberg has also been banged up but he's scheduled to return to the lineup today. Anaheim hasn't score more than three goals in a game in about four weeks. Minnesota has also had its share of problems offensively this season. I don't see this game getting to six goals. So we're on the UNDER tonight.

4-unit Play Take Arizona Coyotes/Las Vegas Golden Knights UNDER 6 (-115) (8:05pm EST) The Vegas Knights have been one of the top scoring teams in the conference in the early going, but I'm not sure they can maintain it. The offense has started to drop of a little bit lately. The Knights don't have a ton of playmakers on offense. They try to make up for it by scrappiness and working hard. That goes a long way, but at the end of the day, playmakers make scoring so much easier. Teams are starting to scout Vegas better, and I think it's going to be tough for them to continue scoring at this rate. Tonight they host the Arizona Coyotes. The Coyotes come in at 30th in the league in goals per game (2.41), so they're not trying to win a high-scoring, high tempo type of game. They are trying to limit the opponents' quality chances and hope they get just enough contributions on offense to stay in the game. With a quality goaltender in net, that strategy can work. However, they've shuffled goalies a bit and now seem to be settled on Scott Wedgewood. He's put up good numbers so far and deserves a shot to stay in the net. I anticipate a low-scoring affair tonight between the Coyotes and Knights. Play UNDER the high total of six.

4-unit Play Take #5 Minnesota Wild/Montreal Canadiens OVER 5.5 (-115) (7:35pm EST) The Minnesota Wild took a tough loss last night in Toronto against the Leafs. They outshot Toronto by a 37-19 margin, but could only muster two goals in a 4-2 loss. It was a good effort and I think the offense is ready to break out of its recent funk. Tonight they head to Montreal to take on the Canadiens. Montreal is without star goalie Carey Price for this one, and it's a big drop off to backup Charlie Lindgren. Expect some goals for the Wild tonight. I think the Canadiens get their share of goals as well in this one. This will be the third game in four nights and fourth in the last six for Minnesota (with the last three on the road). As a result, they might not have their full legs and that usually translates into poor defense. There should be some good scoring chances in this one, so we're playing the OVER.

4-unit Play Take #1 Edmonton Oilers/New York Islanders OVER 5.5 (-115) (7:05pm EST) The Edmonton Oilers were shutout last night, and it was against the Detroit Red Wings - who may be the worst team in the Eastern Conference. If that doesn't fire up an offense to bounce back, I don't know what will. The Oilers did get 36 shots on goal in that game, but nothing hit the back of net. It's been a tough opening to the season for Edmonton at 4-8-1, but I worry less about their offense than I do about the defense and goaltending. The Islanders have been involved in a ton of high-scoring games lately. In fact, eight straight games have gone OVER the total in Islanders games. Their offense is clicking on all cylinders and there's no reason to expect that to change tonight. This game should feature a lot of action, and I don't see a problem getting OVER the total.

In Columbus' last three contests, there have been 26 goals scored combined (nearly nine goals per game). For the Rangers, four of their last four games has gone OVER the total including a 5-4 win in Florida last time out in a game that featured 78 shots on goal. Scoring is way up this season and these two teams have the weapons to keep it going. Play the OVER in this matchup.

4-unit Play Take #1 Philadelphia Flyers/Chicago Blackhawks OVER (8:05pm EST) The Flyers and Blackhawks take the ice on Wednesday and we should see plenty of quality scoring chances. Philadelphia comes in averaging 3.42 goals per game - good enough for 8th in the NHL. Chicago checks in at 12th in the league with 3.17 goals per game. Both defenses have major holes as well. The Hawks are lacking defensive depth after losing stopper Niklas Hjalmarsson in the off-season, and stalwarts Brent Seabrook and Duncan Keith are aging quickly and have lost some effectiveness. Philadelphia has had issues on defense for the past several years and they haven't done enough to plug all the holes. They did beef up the goaltender position, but they are still giving up too many good shots. Overs are 3-0-1 in the Flyers' last four games and I think we see another one tonight. Play OVER the total of 5.5.

4-unit Play Take #55 Winnipeg Jets/Minnesota Wild OVER (8:05pm EST) This one is going to be a fast-paced affair between the Jets and Wild. Both teams really love to open it up and we've seen the NHL really clamp down on penalties this year, which has created even more power play chances. Both teams are scoring over 3.00 goals per this season, and both are allowing over 3.00 goals as well. The total is set high, but I still think it's too low for this matchup. Play the OVER in this one.

4-unit Play Take #7 Edmonton Oilers/Pittsburgh Penguins OVER (7:05pm EST) The Edmonton Oilers have struggled to put the puck in the net this season, but it hasn't been for a lack of trying. The Oilers have averaged 38.9 shots on goal per game, but somehow are only averaging 2.00 goals per contest. That will definitely change in a hurry, and tonight could be a nice time to breakout against a struggling Pittsburgh defense. The Penguins gave up seven goals in their last game against the Lightning and have yield a whopping 4.33 goals against average this season. That's the worst defense in the league thus far. Goaltender Matt Murray has really been feeling the pressure now that he's the main man, and backup goalie Antii Niemi has been ever worse. This should be a fun one with lots of scoring chances on each side. As a result, we're playing OVER the total in tonight's Oilers/Penguins game.

4-unit Play Take #51 San Jose Sharks/New York Rangers OVER 5.5 (-110) (7:05pm EST) We've been on OVERS for several Rangers' games this season and it's paid off. New York has some big issues on the defensive zone and goalie Henrik Lundqvist is no longer capable of doing it by himself. At age 35, Lundqvist has fallen from the ranks of the elite to barely league average. In eight games this season, Lundqvist has allowed 3.00 goals against to go along with a subpar .907 save percentage. The Rangers can score the puck, and that's how they are going to contend for a playoff spot. The top two lines have several top notch playmakers and the guys on the blue line know how to move the puck. As a result, the Rangers are going to be involved in some high-scoring affairs during the 2017-18 season. The Sharks won't mind a fast-paced game with plenty of shots as they have the skaters to keep up. As a result, we're going OVER the total in this matchup.

3-unit Play Take #65 Florida Panthers/Washington Capitals OVER 6 (-105) (7:35pm EST) Alex Ovechkin is clicking and when he's on, this Washington offense is very hard to stop. Ovechkin already has 10 goals in eight games - his best start to a season ever. I don't see Florida slowing the Caps down any. The Panthers are allowing 35.5 shots on goal per game this season. The good news is that Florida is averaging 40.0 on goal themselves. That's impressive and we should see a 5-4 type of shootout today in D.C. Take the OVER in this one.

4-unit Play Take #61 Toronto Maple Leafs/Ottawa Senators OVER 6 (-105) (7:05pm EST) The Toronto Maple Leafs are averaging an amazing 4.86 goals per game this season - a full goal better than the next closest team. I don't think anyone can stop them from getting scoring chances. You just have to hope you can slow down their talented forwards, and that they miss often. Ottawa has done well preventing goals this season (just 2.29 against), but I still wouldn't categorize their blue line as strong. It's a small sample size, and I think they are in the middle of the pack at season's end. The Senators, led by Eric Karlsson, are an offense-first team and they should get their share against a shaky Toronto defense. All signs point to yet another OVER here.
