Way off last night going 0-2. The Celtics are such an inconsistent team it makes it tough, you want to take them but then they play the way they do at times. We will stay away from them tomorrow night against the Raptors and they will go out and win, watch. Hockey parlay goes 0 for and we finish our Monday winless. Atleast it was only 2 plays and it’s not tough to bounce back from an 0-2 night. Let’s see what we have for tonight!
Lightning (-150) - The Lightning let us down the other night and that makes me like them even more tonight! Why? In 46 games this season, the Lightning have only lost 2 games in a row one time. That speaks to how good of a team they are and how consistent they have been this season. They will be on the road taking on a Stars team tonight who they have not played yet this season. I think it will be tough for the Stars to keep up with this Lightning offense - Stars are averaging just 2.63 goals per game this season compared to the 4.04 of the Lightning. Decent moneyline for this matchup and I like out odds of the Lightning only losing 2 games in a row one time this season. Let’s go Bolts!
Blues / Islanders Over (5.5) - Both of these teams are coming off of big wins, the Blues beat the Capitals big last night and the Islanders beat the Lightning big on Sunday night. The Blues will be on the second night of a back to back tonight and I have some very interesting trends for games this season when the Blues are on the second night of a back to back. The first one is that they are 0-5 in those games. That’s pretty telling but the reason we aren’t on the Islanders moneyline is because of the second trend. The Blues GIVE up GOALS on the second night of back to backs this season. They have allowed 3, 4, 3, 6, and 8 goals in those games. Adding to that, the Blues have scored 3 or more goals in 4 of their last 5 games and these two teams played eachother 10 days ago. Result? That game went over 5.5 with 7 total goals scored. I’m liking the over in this one tonight.
Warriors (-1) - Does this one seem too good to be true? It shouldn’t. The Nuggets are a great team and this should be a good matchup tonight. The Nuggets won the first game against the Warriors this season 100-98 and that game was also in Denver. The Nuggets have won 12 home games in a row. Now that I have talked up the Nuggets a bit, let’s talk about the Warriors. They have won 4 game straight and they have won 8 of their last 10 road games. The Nuggets have recent losses to the Rockets by 12 AND Suns by 9 (ew). The Warriors recently played the Rockets and Suns in back to back games and they beat the Suns by 23 in the first game and lost by 1 in OT to the Rockets. Tonight is a big game as far as the seeding in the Western Conference and the Warriors understand that. I like the Dubs to get this win for us tonight.
