Happy Friday! 2–0 last night with Blues over and Kings under. Our accounts were a little greener this morning!
I have three plays tonight to get our weekend started.
(Odds courtesy of BetRivers)
Pittsburg Penguins @ Washington Capitals -148
O/U: 5.5 -117
My pick: First period under 1.5 -104. Both teams are on three days rest coming into tonight’s tilt at our nation’s capital. However, I like both defensive groups and goaltending. I think this will be a low-scoring game.
Winnipeg Jets @ Vancouver Canucks -137
O/U: 5.5 -118
My pick: Over 5.5. The Winnipeg Jets travel to Vancouver tonight after playing last night in Seattle. As for the Vancouver Canucks, their organization is going through a lot of change. As for their on-ice play, they are in the top 10 in most goals allowed this season. Meanwhile, the Jets sit in the top half of the league in goals. Play the stats here and take the over. I would even think about putting a little cash on Jets’ money line at +118.
Philadelphia Flyers @ Vegas Golden Knights -240
O/U: 6 -118
My pick: Vegas team total over 3.5 -130. The Philadelphia Flyers are another team seeing a change in the coach behind the bench. They have lost 10 in a row and I do not see them breaking that tonight in Vegas. Opponents have scored four or more in eight of Philadelphia’s last 10 games. This should be a nice handout for us.
Make sure to follow me on Twitter, @ThomasGibbons_3, for my bonus play at 5 p.m. CST.
Happy gambling, and remember, always ride the Tommy Train.
