Ouch. I know I know, last night was a brutal night and thanks to all of you that took the time to let me know the picks sucked, I really needed the reminder. Trends and reasoning were there, the games just didn’t go the way we expected them to. We can only get better from last night’s results so let’s try and match our 9-2 weekend that we had last weekend. Good odds on tonight’s picks and I’m feeling that these are some high percentage plays to get the weekend off to a good start!
Devils / Capitals Over (6) - The Capitals have gone over in 3 of their last 5 games but the Devils have only gone over in 1 of their last 5 games. The thing about the one game that the Devils did go over was that it was aginst the Flyers and there were 9 total goals scored. The Capitals are coming off of a game against the Flyers where there were 6 total goals scored. I like the pace that these two teams played against a recent common opponent. I also like the fact that last time these two teams played each other there were 9 total goals scored in a 6-3 Capitals win.
Wild (-125) - The Wild just beat the best team in hockey last night 3-0, then had a much easier travel schedule than their opponent tonight. The Panthers are coming off of a deflating defeat against the Bruins where they allowed 2 goals in the final minute to lose 4-3. That’s now 5 losses in a row for the Panthers and after a loss like that and their current losing streak, I think it’s going to be tough to get motivated for tonight’s game and quick turn around. The Wild also beat up on the Panthers pretty good in their first meeting beating them 5-1.
Cross Sport Moneyline Parlay:
Rockets ML / Capitals ML (-141) - Don’t think the Rockets forgot about the last meeting when the Sixers beat them 121-93. They will be out looking for revenge tonight and they couldn’t be playing much better basketball right now coming into this one winners of 6 games straight. Joel Embiid is out for the Sixers again tonight who have been inconsistent and are coming off of a loss to the fucking Chicago Bulls. I love the Rockets to win this game at home tonight although the moneyline is a little too pricey to play by itself so we are parlaying it with the Capitals. YOU WANT TO TALK ABOUT THE CAPS!? The Caps are getting hot at the right time and they have won 8 of their last 10. Last time they played the Devils they beat them 6-3. We are doubling down on this game as we are playing the over on a separate play so we will be cheering for the Caps to win and cover the over themselves. Great value on this one but put it in early because both lines will be moving as we get closer to the start of these games tonight. LOVE this one but I can’t get the hammer out after last night.
