We split our two picks last night, which has been the common theme lately. Our underdog pick of Montreal lost 5-1, as a double minor penalty when the game was tied 1-1 cost the Canadiens. The Sens scored 2 goals on that power play and didn’t look back. Our pick on the Canucks came through as Vancouver won 3-0 at home.
Tonight I’ve got a rare 4 pick night, which includes a Game of the Week pick sent to members via email (see below). We’ve got 9 NHL games on the board and action in 4 of those games – lets have a good night.
3 of the picks (including the Game of the Week) will be sent to members only tonight. If you want to become a member you can click here to sign up.
I’ve included one free pick below…
2 STAR = Winnipeg Jets @ Florida Panthers – JETS TO WIN (-108)
(Note: I’m risking 2.00 units to win 1.86 units)
The Winnipeg Jets are off to a pretty solid 3-2-1 start to the season winning 3 of their last 4 games after opening the season with losses vs Ottawa and Boston. The Jets have scored 16 goals over their last 4 games, with their power play cashing in at least once in each of those games. Their latest game was on Tuesday in Montreal and the Jets lost a close 4-3 game to a then hot Canadiens team. Florida opened the season with a 5-1 win against Carolina at home despite being out shot 42-25, but have since gone on to lose 5 straight games. Losses have come to Ottawa (2), Montreal, Philadelphia and Tampa Bay. Over that span of 5 losses the Panthers have been outscored 23-5. Take note that the Jets are 8-3 in their last 11 vs Southeast opponents, and although these two teams split 3 meetings last season the Jets won twice in Florida and are 5-1 in their last 6 games in Florida. Florida has averaged just one goal per game over their last 5, while the Jets are averaging 4 goals per game over their last 4. Florida looks to be a good team to bet against right now, and with the Jets playing well and getting a good price we will do just that taking Winnipeg on the money line.
