Should not have laughed… definitely should not have laughed. Now the Hockey Gods are, as always, getting the best of it. The Panthers tripled up the shots against Tampa last night. Never an easy feat and yet walked away with a 3-2 overtime loss. That is three consecutive totals falling short for me. The Devils were blanked once again facing the Rangers – main thing is they are saving all their goals for that one game when they will put all three past. And then the Islanders and Jackets both skated to clear and honest losses on the road. And there ya have it… up to nine straight losses now, making it the worst three day stretch under the new approach.

We return to a smaller slate of games again tonight. The Islanders are immediately back in action so we are firing on them here once more as a small underdog. The only other two wagers today are some flat bets to the Avalanche puckline and Ducks full game total .

One note on the record. Was updating this morning and noticed it added to over 106% – of course not possible given the data it is using and meant to be categorizing. So noticed there was a minor typo in the sheets just for the DBC(L) column. I have not gone back to see how long that was the case for but it appears less than a couple weeks. Anyway just wanted to put some context to the significant jump from yesterday’s piece.

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

*The picks reflect the line at the moment the writer made the play on BetOnline (visit our BetOnline Review) Since the lines might vary, don’t forget to refer back to our NHL odds.


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.
