I’m a little late getting this post up, but you still have a couple hours to get your bets in before the games begin. I went 1-2 last night. The two losses were of course in extra time (one shootout), while the win was a 6-1 blowout.
Season Record-: 50-97 for -46.53 units.
Toronto Maple Leafs @ Philadelphia Flyers
The Maple Leafs are self destructing, which is what they do at this time of year. Randy Carlyle is finally being shown for what he is: a horrible coach. My friend is a Leafs fan and the rants he does on Facebook about Carlyle are absolutely hilarious. I tend to agree with him that the Leafs have been playing above their level for much of the year and now are coming back down the to mean. When you are about to set a record for most shots against in a season it’s surprising that they are even still in the playoff race at this point.
This is also almost a sports betting arbitrage opportunity because the odds at 5Dimes are +151 for the Leafs. If the odds were longer than +155 you could make guaranteed money by betting on both sides
Play: Flyers -155 (SportsInteraction)
Chicago Blackhawks @ Ottawa Senators
The Senators will lose tonight and all hope on a miraculous playoff run will be out the window. The Blackhawks aren’t playing well, but they are going to pick it up down the stretch to get ready for the playoffs. They will win this one.
Play: Blackhawks -135 (5Dimes)
