Here's a look back at last night's VIP picks - 3-0 if the Canadiens didn't give up 4 unanswered goals!
Bruins (-150) - I usually stick to the trends but I’m going against them in this one. The Bruins have lost 5 of their last 6 since starting the season 11-1-2 but I like them in this matchup tonight. The Devils placed their starting goalie on waivers yesterday which passes the torch to 23 year old Mackenzie Blackwood. He has allowed 3+ goals in 5 of his 8 games in the month of November. Tuukka Rask will start for the Bruins tonight and he shutout the Devils back on Oct 12 stopping all 31 shots on net. The Bruins won the first megastar to head matchup 3-0 and they should snap out of their funk tonight.
Canadiens (-125) - Good value here for the 11-5-4 Canadiens taking on the 7-8-4 Blue Jackets who they just beat a week ago. The Blue Jackets will have Joonas Korpisalo in net and they have lost 8 of the 15 games he has started this season. The Canadiens come in averaging 3.5 goals per game and they should be able to outscore this Blue Jackets offense that is only averaging 2.37 goals per game.
Thunder / Lakers Over (210) - The over is looking great in this matchup tonight with 7 of the last 10 combined games going over 210 with an average total score of 228.57. There should be plenty of fire power in this game with Chris Paul and Danilo Gallinari playing their second game in a row in their old arena. Both of them are averaging 16+ this season. LeBron has 5 straight double doubles and the Lakers have scored 120+ in 3 of those 5 games. I think this one will be high scoring and I like the over.
