Another winner last night betting against the Flames, this time taking the Canucks by 2. Vancouver was pretty heavily outshot, but managed to score 5 goals in a 5-2 victory over Calgary.
Sunday there is quite a bit of NHL action, as we start getting into some really important games for playoff positioning. I’ve got one play going tonight…
2 UNIT = New Jersey Devils @ Buffalo Sabres – SABRES TO WIN (-113)
(Note: I’m risking 2.00 units to win 1.77 units)
The Devils are 15-14-9 on the season and just 5-7-7 on the road. The Sabres are 15-17-6 on the year and 7-7-3 at home. New Jersey is coming off a loss at home vs Toronto last night, and although they outplayed Toronto they didn’t look too good in that one losing 2-1. That was their 6th straight loss, and during that span they’ve scored just 10 goals (less than 2 per game on average). Buffalo had the night off last night after a 4-2 win against Ottawa at home on Friday night. The Sabres beat Pittsburgh on Tuesday 4-1 to win two straight, and they are a respectable 4-2-2 in their last 8 games. These two teams have met twice this year, with the home team winning in each meeting via the shootout. Note that the Devils are just 1-10 in their last 11 road games. New Jersey is really struggling to score right now, and with Buffalo coming off a two big wins and 1 day of rest and the Devils playing in back to backs I like the Sabres at a good price.
