A nice WINNER last night taking the Rangers, who won in the 3rd overtime (longest game in a few years). What an exhausting game to just watch (can’t imagine how the players felt), but it was nice to hit a winner.
I have a 3 unit play going tonight for clients only (check your emails!), and a 1 unit play listed below in the Flyers and Devils Game 3.
3 UNIT PICK = CLIENTS ONLY
1 UNIT PICK = Philadelphia Flyers @ New Jersey Devils – OVER 5.5 GOALS (+130)
(Note: I’m risking 1.00 units to win 1.30 units)
We’ve profited with this same plays going 1-1 on the series, but Game 1 being a 5 Star pick. Heading back to New Jersey I still like the value on the OVER getting it at +130. These two teams combined for 62 shots in Game 1, and 55 shots in Game 2. This year the Flyers average 3.07 goals per game on the road and 2.70 against. The Devils are averaging 2.75 goals per game at home and 2.45 against. The OVER is 10-4-1 in the Flyers last 15 games overall, and 4-1-1 in their last 6 road games. Both goalies have had their good starts, but overall haven’t done anything special in these playoffs. Bryzgalov has allowed 3 or more goals against in 7 of his last 8 starts, while Brodeur has allowed 19 goals against over 9 games this postseason (2.11 GAA). Take note Ilya Kovalchuk will be back in the lineup tonight which should help the Devils offensively. With the way the first two of these games have gone and the way the Flyers have played all season I like the value on the OVER here again tonight.
