Saturday Pix - 5 Plays!!!
Updated record to come later.
After a long hiatus, I'm back posting my daily column. For the most part, things have settled down as teams approach the one third mark of the season. Here's hoping I have a much better handle on each team as we move forward for the rest of the season. Analysis below. Feel free to ask any questions in the comment section or to post trends/angles and systems in the comments. I will try to post starting goalies in the comment section as well throughout the day on Saturday.
CLB/BOS 1pm EST - Best home team against one of the worst road teams, but BOS -375 is steep juice. The Jackets have gone under the total in 8 of their last 10 games. Pass for me.
OTT/DET - 1pm EST - The Sens are 7-2-1 in their last 10 games and have won 4 of their last 5 games on the road. The Wings have gone under the total in 6 straight games, including 8 of their last 10 games. OTT playing much better than DET, so I'm surprised DET is the fav. Lean to OTT at even money.
ANA/EDM - 4pm EST - The Ducks are playing their 4th in 6 nights on the road and have gone over the total in 8 of their last 10 games. EDM has gone over the total in 7 of their last 10 games. Lean to the over 6.5, naturally!
DAL/CAR - The Canes have won 7 of their last 8 games while going under the total in 7 of their last 10 games. The Stars have also gone under the total in 7 of their last 10 games too. Lean to the under 5.5.
NYR/PHI - NYR have won 5 in a row, while PHI is 3-7 in their last 10 games. NYR -184 is too rich on the road for a divisional rival. Lean to the under 6 here.
TB/MTL - TB is 8-2 in their last 10 games while MTL is 4-6. TB -240 is a pass for me on the road, MTL +195 as a home dog is worth a shot, small.
TOR/WSH - TOR is 8-2 in their last 10 games and have won 4 straight head to head with WSH. The Leafs are a small fav at -146 and Samsonov gets to face his former team. The Caps just had their 5 game winning streak by DAL.
FL/NJ - The Panthers are terrible on the road and are 4-6 in their last 10 games. The Devils have lost 4 in a row after a 13 game winning streak. Lean to NJ has a nice small home fav -137.
BUF/AZ - The Yotes play much better at home and have been off for 4 nights, while BUF is off a huge win at COL. Nice letdown spot here for BUF. AZ +130 nice small home dog.
NSH/COL - The Preds have lost 5 in a row, while COL is 4-6 in their last 10 games. COL has gone under the total in 5 straight games, Pass for me as COL -182 should not be that heavy a fav.
NYI/VEG - The Knights are really banged up, with some key injuries. NYI +142 is worth a shot as they are very healthy and VGK have been average at home this year.
WPG/VAN - The Canucks have won 4 of their last 5 games and 3 straight head to head with WPG. Both teams have the same odds, which says Vegas is begging you to take the Jets as these teams are 10 points apart in the standing.
SJ/LA - SJ is better on the road this year than at home and have been off for 4 nights. The Kings have been very inconsistent, so it's hard to back them at -182 against a divisional rival. SJ +150 is a nice dog.
Playing all for 1 Unit each -
OTT - ML(-102)
NJ - ML(-120)
Good Luck Today!
