Some more exciting playoff hockey last night including 3 games that went into overtime.
Unfortunately the Blues lost in OT going down 1-0 in the series (3 unit series play on the Blues), and Ottawa lost 4-2 to also go down 1-0 (underdog 1 unit series play on Ottawa). We were on the winning side of the Phoenix OT game, as our 1 unit underdog series play on the Coyotes takes a 1-0 lead.
We also played the UNDER 5 in the Sharks/Blues game and it was looking great for most of the game. Unfortunately 3 third period goals forced overtime and a PUSH for our bet.
One play going today, and we will sit back and cheer for Nashville to go up 2-0 in that series for our 3 unit play on the Predators to win the series.
2 UNIT PLAY:
Philadelphia Flyers @ Pittsburgh Penguins – OVER 6 GOALS (-110)
(Note: I’m risking 2.20 units to win 2 units)
Although the oddsmakers adjusted to a 6 goal total I still like the OVER. We cashed for 5 units on the OVER in game 1 as we saw a total of 7 goals scored, and I think we have another good shot at this total getting over 6 goals again. I won’t go into a full write up here again as everything I wrote for the 5 STAR pick applies. Just take note that the Penguins are averaging 3.55 goals per game on the season at home, and the Flyers are right around 3 goals per game on the road. Take the OVER for 2 units.
