Tuesday night - 1-2 -3.60 Units
YTD 35-40 -12.45 Units
We have a huge 15 game card for Saturday, with some teams in a nice spots, so let's hope the puck goes our way for once this season!
Overall, home teams are 147-126 to start the season with games going under the total on the season at 142-127-4.
NJ/OTT - 1pm EST - The Sens lost in OT last week to the Devils and matched up well with them. NJ has EDM on deck at home, look ahead is possible plus some teams just don't get up for afternoon games, especially on the road with routines out of whack. NJ -140 makes me feel Vegas is begging for Devil's money.
CGY/FL - 4pm EST - The Panthers are a very good home team while the Flames are beyond average on the road. CGY is 2-8 in their last 10 vs. FL 6-4 in their last 10 games, two teams going in different directions.
PIT/WPG - The Jets are 8-2 in their last 10 games while going under 8-2 as well and are 6-1 at home. Hard to back an average Pens team on the road but WPG -102 while PIT -118, has me thinking Vegas knows something we don't as the Jets line looks too good to be true.
BUF/TOR - The Sabre's hot start seems like a month ago, now that they've lost 7 in a row. The Leafs are hard to figure at times and BUF has beat them three games in a row as heavy dogs.
CHI/BOS - The Bruins are 9-1 in their last 10 games while the Hawks are 2-8. Does BOS get caught looking ahead to their next two road games at TB and FL, division rivals?! Not worth the price of BOS -420. CHI +320...hmm....
COL/WSH - The Caps are off a terrible 3 game roadie in which they lost all three, 2-8 in their las 10 games. The Avs are 7-3 in their last 10 games and are very solid on the road, but are 2-8 in their last 10 games head to head with WSH. COL -132 and WSH +115, Vegas begging for COL money?!
DET/CLB - Wings 4th game in 6 nights on the road and are flying back from out west too. Jackets have won 3 of their last 4 games and have gone over the total in 12 of 16 games so far this season. Nice small home dog here at +118.
PHI/MTL - The Flyers have lost 5 in a row and 3rd road game in 5 nights. The Habs play very well at home and have been the more consistent team of the two. MTL -140 solid value at home for a small price.
ANA/STL - The Blues have won 5 in a row after a long losing streak while the Ducks continue to play inconsistent hockey. STL -230 to steep a price here. Pass for me.
CAR/MIN - With no Fleury in goal for the Wild due to an upper body injury, MIN gave up 6 goals to PIT the other night. The Canes are terrific on the road and a great price at -132.
NYI/DAL - The Stars are off a solid three game roadie in which they got 5 out of a possible 6 points. NYI is on a 4 game roadie and split the first two games on this road trip, with TOR on deck.
TB/NSH - The Preds have won 5 of their last 7 games, including 3 in a row. TB has BOS on deck and are average on the road compared to their play at home, while playing their 4th game in 6 nights. TB -126 is tempting but NSH +105 says the smart money is on the Preds.
LA/SEA - The Kraken are on a 6 game homestand, 2-2 so far but are a far better road team this year. LA has won 4 of their last 5 games. Passing on this one for now, until we hear the starting goalies.
VGK/EDM - The Knights are such a great road team while EDM has been hard to figure out, playing inconsistent hockey at home. Both teams giving up juice to bet them, VGK -106 and EDM -113.
NYR/SJ - The Sharks are terrible at home but very good on the road to start the year, go figure. SJ beat NYR last month in NY as a big dog +242. SJ lost last game out after a long four game roadie and no rest, they should rebound for this one, while NYR are on a 4 game west coast roadie. SJ +142 worth a shot, not NYR -172 on the road, too much juice.
