NHL Picks for April 21st


Great night last night!

We go 1-1 with our 1 unit plays, but we cashed a 3 unit (clients only) series pick on the Predators to win the series.  Nashville got things done in 5 games with a 2-1 win at home last night.

Our pending series plays are St Louis (3 units), Phoenix and Ottawa (both 1 unit underdog plays).  If we can nail St Louis and one of the two underdog plays I will be extremely happy with a very profitable first round.  Lets enjoy the games as things start to get really exciting with some close series’.

One play going tonight in a later game…

Chicago Blackhawks @ Phoenix Coyotes – UNDER 5 GOALS (+130)
(Note: I’m risking 1 unit to win 1.30 units)

The Coyotes hold a 3-1 lead heading back home and would love to avoid going back to Chicago for a Game 6.  All 4 games of this series have gone into OT, with 3 of the 4 finishing right on tonight’s total at 5.  In each of those games we have seen some late third period goals that forced what would be a “push” with the total set at 5.  I think tonight we see one of these two teams close it out without blowing a late lead.  Being an elimination game both teams are going to be focused on their defensive play just a little more than the previous games, and I look for both Mike Smith and Corey Crawford to be on their “A” games.  Take note that we’ve only seen 3 powerplay goals this entire series.  I like the value on the UNDER tonight, as we hope Phoenix can close it out in a low scoring game to cash both the UNDER and the series play on Phoenix.
