Another Winner on Sunday afternoon as the Islanders blew a 2-0 lead and then came back from their own 2 goal deficit to force overtime and cash our regulation +0.5 bets.
We also watched our two teams that we have 4 and 5 unit series bets on win. The Senators won 6-1 to go up 2-1 in that series and the Sharks won 5-2 to go up a convincing 3-0 in that series. Lets hope the Sharks can close that one out tomorrow night before they give the Canucks any hope, and if the Sens could go up 3-1 that would be huge. By the way what a crazy Sens game with over 200 minutes in penalties. I love playoff hockey. Anyways on to tonight’s pick as we go with another underdog who has a good shot at winning tonight…
2 UNIT = Washington Capitals @ New York Rangers – CAPITALS TO WIN (+130)
(Note: I’m risking 2.00 units to win 2.60 units)
The Capitals have taken a 2-0 lead in the series as they won both games at home. The first game was 3-1 on Thursday and then they won 1-0 in overtime on Saturday afternoon. Both games have been good games that really could of gone either way, but the Capitals have just been finding ways to win lately as they are now 19-7 in their last 26 games overall. The Capitals are also 8-2 in their last 10 road games and 10-2 in their last 12 games following a win. With the two losses to Washington to start the series the Rangers are just 4-10 in their last 14 vs a team with a winning record. As I said in the Game 1 write up when we took the Caps, the Rangers beat a lot of non-playoff teams down the stretch to get into the postseason. Although the Rangers have a lot of talent and were predicted by many to come out of the Eastern Conference by a lot of people before the season they have just struggled to win against good teams. Although New York is a good home team and this is almost a must win for them the Capitals will feel the same way as they would love to go up 3-0. I had this line closer to a pick’em with the Rangers slight favorites, but at +130 I think we have value on the red hot Caps to win on the road tonight.
