“Alright let’s see about at least grabbing one W tonight!”

… or, not.

What the hell, man. At least the Avalanche could have played last night, which was a guaranteed winner… Because I say so and I am ‘due’. At least the market is moving against me in these losses so there is no misplaced hope, though it could still be false even if it did not.

Those Islanders back to back losses to the Bruins was the first progression series loss in 10 days. Hopefully the other two open series do not follow suit or it could be a real poor hole to dig out of in the final stretch of the season. Devils are the early game today so a third shot on their team total at 2.5 will be the C bet followed by a fourth if needed. The Jackets are also getting a second straight shot against the Stars in Dallas.

The only other play on my end is the Sharks vs. Wild full game total. Totals have been as cold as everything else this week but it is not like there have been twenty shots on ’em. After the stretch through the first half of the season, missing eleven straight (though sad) is not enough to call ugly after reflecting on the context.

Enjoy your Saturday!

Always risking 1u, never ‘to win’ 1u. If I expose two, that still remains risking 2u, not betting 2.5 to win 1 simply because the price is shorter than what I have. A standard stake here is 1u = 1% of your bankroll. This will keep you in the game instead of busting out every other day because you decided to be stupid and put your entire bankroll down on 8 wagers. If you have worse prices don’t bet more to compensate. Please do not attach my plays in parlays, you are costing yourself extra money trying to cut corners.
