MORNING LINE REPORT – Saturday, February 16th

“When the going gets tough, the tough get going”

As the Billy Ocean song goes, the tough get going – or in this case, they revert to some voodoo magic! I was beginning to think my efforts were going for naught this week as the splash from last weekend’s bloodbath was carrying over into the week, until last night when we finally managed to pick up a win.

The day began with this ominous prediction regarding Corey Schneider and with the strange sense of humor the Hockey Gods have had lately, of course it happened. Fortunately, my winning night came just before Corey’s as the Carolina Hurricanes hung on to down the Edmonton Oilers 3-1 for our lone wager of the day. It’s very rare you’ll see the Canes outplayed, but that’s exactly how last night’s game unfolded as the Oilers were without a doubt the better team but ran into a hot Curtis McElhinney in net for the Canes who made 40 saves on the night.

The luck of the bounce can change on a dime, so hopefully this was a precursor for the start of a good run again. We’ll put it right to the test this afternoon with an ugly home dog against the red-hot can-do-no-wrong Blues from St. Louis.

A little change of pace today, as I’m dragging behind this morning a bit. So, here’s the first eight games on the board I wanted to get up before morning skates get underway (and I have to re-do have of it). I’ll get the four late games up shortly after with any additional plays and will send out an update once all is complete. [UPDATE: All 12 games are now complete with one added play]

All wagers this season will come from one of three sportsbooks – Bookmaker, BetOnline and Bovada. It’s great to have a local account with your bookie but you should consider adding these accounts to your options to maximize your value and profit margins. It’s free to set up an account and these are three of the most secure options for U.S. players.

  1. Nice job man. When the Flames went up 2-0 I turned it off to avoid the inevitable sweat so glad I missed that.
    I know all about migraines and how yuk it is to do anything other than lie in a dark room when they come on, so an extra thanks for today’s work.

    1. You certainly saved a few gray hairs by missing that hectic finish, but it was a satisfying result!
      Yes, these days are no fun when you’d do absolutely anything for just a bit of pain relief. Fortunately, I only get them this bad a couple days a month. Thanks for reading and the kind words!

  2. Enjoy your work and wouldn’t worry about CLV it will be positive in the end. Everyone on the Oilers today and rightfully so and I’ll be right there with you. What’s concerning me is that this line isn’t moving as expected but I’m there. Thanks for the work and Good luck read you every day.

  3. Can’t believe that guys cry over free picks and especially after the heater he’s been on. Also I don’t advise betting blindly no matter who the source is. Winning takes work and even than blank days will happen.

    1. Absolutely right, thanks Paulsam. There’s always one or two who ruin it for all the good people, but I don’t let much bother me so usually get a laugh out of comments like that. You need to have thick skin if you’re going to give out free advice in this industry.
      That’s what we pride ourselves on more than anything here at Bang the Book. It’s always more about the process of doing things right than the results itself. With the right process, results will follow, but winning every day is just an impossible dream.
      The injury and goaltending information I’m providing here is invaluable and the recommended picks are just a bonus, really, although I know a lot of folks blindly play them due to the success I’ve had over the years. Fortunately, after a tough start to this season, we’re comfortably in the black for the moment 🙂
      Appreciate the support. Cheers

  4. just curious on the side of your work there’s always little captions like this.

    Play OVER NEW JERSEY on the total in Road games after playing 3 consecutive road games.
    The record is 10 Overs and 1 Unders for the last three seasons (+9.2 units)

    What there telling you is bet the Over Team Total on the New Jersey Devils. Is that correct?
    TIA
