I’m getting these out late so I’m going to make the write ups short…
2 UNIT = Winnipeg Jets @ Tampa Bay Lightning – LIGHTNING TO WIN (-150)
(Note: I’m risking 2.00 units to win 1.33 units)
These two teams have similar records on the year. Winnipeg is coming off of two straight loses, their latest a 4-1 loss in Florida against the Eastern Conference’s worst team right now. The Lightning broke a 5 game losing skid with a big 5-2 victory and they will happy to head back home after playing 6 of 7 on the road. Tampa Bay has already beaten Winnipeg 8-3 this year and they’ve won 3 straight vs the Jets. The Lightning are 15-3 in these two teams last 18 meetings and 9-1 in their last 10 meetings in Tampa Bay. Take the Lightning.
2 UNIT = Pittsburgh Penguins @ Philadelphia Flyers – OVER 6 GOALS (-110)
(Note: I’m risking 2.00 units to win 1.82 units)
We will go back to the OVER for the third time this season between these two teams. The first meeting was at the very start of the year (first game) and it was a final score of 3-1. Their latest meeting was more like a Pittsburgh/Philly match up with 11 goals scored and each team with over 30 shots on net. The Flyers have scored 30 goals in their last 8 games (just short of 4 goals per game), while the Penguins have scored 11 goals over their past 2 games, and 21 over their last 5 (over 4 goals per game). The OVER is 20-8-1 in the Penguins last 29 road games and 40-17-2 in their last 59 overall. The OVER is 6-2 in the Flyers last 8 overall. Take the OVER.
