I’ve been horrid in all sports the last few days, so no surprise the NHL is there along with the others, which is a bit odd, since we did halfway decent several years ago when picking the games for the week in advance. Still, I’ve done this far too long to get too up when things or doing good or too down when they’re not, even though I’m an extremely poor loser. But when things are going bad and you have your plays narrowed down to two games, you’ll invaribly pick the wrong one.
Buffalo at New Jersey: The Devils are -185 and the total is 5.5-under (-135) while I made this one 5.9 goals, which is the league average, as well as the average of the Sabres’ away games and New Jersey’s home games.
Pittsburgh at Carolina: The Hurricanes are -141 as Jarry is in the pipes for the Penguins and the total is 5.5-over (-120). I have this one at 5.95 goals.
Philadelphia at Tampa Bay: The Lightning are -245 and 5.5-over (-125) and I made it 6. Over 90% of the early wagers have been on the over.
New York at Detroit: An Original 6 matchup here shows the Rangers -115 with a total of 5.5-flat and I made this one at 6.3 goals. The majority of bets are coming in on the under.
Columbus at Ottawa: Mike Condon gets the start for the Senators and Columbus is -130 with a total of 5.5-under (-120). I made this total at 6.4 goals.
Nashville at Minnesota: The Predators are -108 and the total here is 5.5-under although it opened at 5.5-flat and more over bets have come in than under wagers. I have this one at 5.1 goals.
NY Islanders at Winnipeg: The Jets are -135 and the total is 6-over (-125) and I have it at 6.75 goals.
St. Louis at Dallas: The Stars are -145 and the total is 5.5-under (-125) and I have this one at 5.65 goals.
Chicago at Edmonton: The ‘Hawks are still listing “undecided” for their goalie, while Talbot is in net for the Oilers. Edmonton is favored by -205 and the total is 6-over (-120) and I have this one at 6.
Toronto at Arizona: The Leafs are -120 with a total of 6-flat and I have this one at 6.3 goals. The Leafs scored 7 goals last night and away teams who scored at least seven goals the previous night on the road are 20-9-3, so will tab the over in this one for today’s play.
