The Senators actually won last night, so my method of picking the opposite team worked on one of the two games I selected. I’ll keep it going tonight with the Sens again, but I’ll make my regular picks for the rest of the games.
Season Record-: 46-94 for -48.55 units.
Ottawa Senators @ Florida Panthers
I’m picking against the Senators here because I want them to win. That said the Panthers do have a good shot in this one. Even though they won last night the Sens still showed they are susceptible to giving up leads and they are still not playing well defensively.
Play: Panthers 1.952 (5Dimes)
Phoenix Coyotes @ Pittsburgh Penguins
The Pens are having one of those lulls where they look like a very average team. The Coyotes on the other hand are fighting for a playoff berth in the West. They beat the Rangers 2-0 tonight and I expect them to be able to find their legs tonight with so much on the line. They are also playing some good hockey so I think this is a good bet as big underdogs.
Play: Coyotes 2.92 (5Dimes)
New York Islanders @ Carolina Hurricanes
For losing Tavares the Islanders aren’t playing that poorly. They are still going to be the underdogs heading into this one and rightfully so, but these teams are fairly equal in my estimation. The Isles have a fairly good 16-17-1 road record and I think this will be a battle in Carolina tonight. For this reason I like the underdogs.
Play: Islanders 2.65 (5Dimes)
Dallas Stars @ Chicago Blackhawks
The Stars did play last night, winning 2-1 at home to the Jets, but I don’t expect them to lose their legs tonight with so much on the line for this team. The Stars are playing good hockey and are on a 2 game winning streak. The Blackhawks, similar to the Pens, are in a bit of a lull right now and look like an average team. This is a great opportunity to get a bet down on the Stars as they are bigger dogs than they should be.
Play: Stars 2.85 (5Dimes)
