We went 1-2, as our early players on the UNDER and Jets were losers. Fortunately the Kings came back from being down 4-1 to win 6-4 in an exciting game.
Wednesday we have 4 games on the NHL betting board, and I’ve got one play going..
2 UNIT = Colorado Avalanche @ Chicago Blackhawks – BLACKHAWKS -1.5 [Puck Line] (+141)
(Note: I’m risking 2.00 units to win 2.82 units)
Both of these teams are playing in their second of a back to back. The Avs were in Detroit last night losing 2-1, while the Blackhawks were at home and won 5-3 against Minnesota to extend their record to 23 games with getting at least one point to start the season. The Blackhawks have won 10 straight and are now an unbelievable 20-0-3 and 10-0-1 at home. The loss for Colorado makes them just 1-5 in their last 6 games. In those 5 losses they scored just 8 goals. The Avs are 8-9-4 on the year, and are just 2-7-3 on the road. Semyon Varlamov will be in net tonight and he is 6-8-3 with a 2.79 GAA and .910 SV%. Ray Emery will go for Chicago and he has yet to lose this season with a 9-0 record, 2.02 GAA and .926 SV%. Take note that Chicago is 4th in the NHL with 3.13 goals per game, while Colorado is 24th with 2.38 goals per game. Chicago is also 1st in goals against per game with a 1.78 goals against per game average, while Colorado is 19th giving up 2.90 goals per game. The Avs are 3-13 in their last 16 road games dating back to last season, and 14-37 when playing on 0 days rest. The Blackhawks are 42-18 on 0 days rest, 35-16 in their last 51 home games, and 21-5 in their last 26 vs Western Conference opponents. Chicago is a much better team and it goes without saying that they are playing great hockey right now. I’m taking the Blackhawks to win by 2 or more at home.
