A winner yesterday with the Sabres getting things done in a 4-3 shootout win.
Today there is 9 NHL games on a busy Sunday, and I’ve got 3 money line plays going. I won’t do full write ups here on Sunday, but I will add a few points for each. Take note that the Blackhawks game is on at 12:30 PM EST.
2 UNIT = Chicago Blackhawks @ Detroit Red Wings – BLACKHAWKS TO WIN (-104) ***EARLY START**
(Note: I’m risking 2.00 units to win 1.92 units)
The Blackhawks are 18-0-3 on the year and 9-0-2 on the road, while Detroit is 10-8-3 on the season and 7-4-1 at home. These two teams met once earlier in the year with Chicago winning 2-1 in overtime. The Blackhawks are 4-0 in their last 4 meetings, and 7-1 in their last 8 meetings in Detroit. Chicago has won 8 straight games, while the Red Wings have won 3 of 4 but are just 3-6 in their last 9 overall. I’ll take Chicago again at a pick’em price.
2 UNIT = Edmonton Oilers @ Minnesota Wild – WILD TO WIN (-138)
(Note: I’m risking 2.00 units to win 1.45 units)
The Wild are 10-8-2 on the year, but they are a solid 7-2-1 on home ice. The Oilers are just 8-8-4 on the season and 4-4-2 on the road. These two teams have played once so far this season, with Minnesota winning 3-1 in Edmonton near the end of February. Both teams are coming off a loss, but the Oilers are just 2-4 in their last 6 games while the Wild are 4-2 in their last 6. The Wild are 21-5 in their last 26 home games vs the Oilers, and 37-15-2 in their last 54 meetings overall. Minnesota plays much better at home, and I have them winning this one.
2 UNIT = Vancouver Canucks @ Calgary Flames – CANUCKS TO WIN (-119)
(Note: I’m risking 2.00 units to win 1.68 units)
The Canucks are 11-5-4 on the season and 5-2-2 on the road. Calgary is 7-8-4 on the year and 4-5-2 at home. Vancouver comes off a big 5-2 victory last night against the Kings, while the Flames are losers of two straight – including a very tough 5-4 loss in Colorado. Vancouver has had the Flames number winning 12 of their last 16 meetings, and going 5-2 in their last 7 meetings in Calgary. This is a good price for Vancouver in this match up and I’ll take them to win back to back tonight.
