After a 2-1 night last night Papa improves on the week (6-3 +2.62 units) and (22-17-1 overall). Can’t believe that over didn’t hit in the Jets/Leafs game, but that’s how the dice rolls sometimes. On to today. With a huge slate on tap for the night, I only feel comfortable with three matchups. Here is what the Papa has.
Montreal Canadiens at Buffalo Sabres: Habs ML +110
Montreal is an underdog coming into Buffalo tonight. They have won 4 of their last 5 games and have been a pretty consistent team overall. Before the season started, I would have never thought that these guys would have this much success. But I want to make it clear that this bet isn’t just about how good Montreal has been. This is a bet against Buffalo as they travel back home from a western road trip where they went 3-2 and are coming off two very good wins against the Kings and Ducks. Not only are they coming off a road trip, they have some time to rest and get ready to hit the road once again. I’m a huge fan of going against teams that have to travel the next day.
Philadelphia Flyers at Boston Bruins: B’s in Reg +105 and TT O3.5 +132
I don’t know what is with the NHL and making a team travel for one game and come right back home. It’s just odd, but that’s what the Flyers are doing as they come into Boston tonight. The Flyers have been alternating wins and losses mostly all year and tonight they should be due for a W. Not tonight though. The Bruins have been a little inconsistent this year, but have a perfect record at home, scoring 4 or more in all of those games. I believe they keep that up tonight and pile on the goals against Philly who have given up 4 or more in every road game.
Washington Capitals at Edmonton Oilers: Caps in Reg +135 and O6 -120
There’s no question that the Caps can score and tonight should be a shootout for them against an underwhelming Oiler team. Every single game that Washington has played has gone 6+ goals. With the Oiler defense struggles and a roadie revenge match against the Preds on Saturday, I can see this game getting out of hand late if the Caps are up early.
Good luck tonight and please follow @BettingCrashers for all of Papa’s picks. That’s if you want to make money. I would also like to hear who other people have going into tonight. These blogs won’t be happening everyday, but I hope they help in terms of seeing how I like to bet.
