NHL Picks for January 19th

7

Great night Wednesday going 3-0! The Blackhawks took care of the Sabres beating them 6-2 giving us a regulation WINNER. We also had the Ducks to win and the OVER in that game. The Ducks won 6-2 nailing both of those picks as well. Solid all around night.

3 UNIT Game of the Week Pick = Sent To Clients Only (see above)

 

Boston Bruins @ New Jersey Devils – DEVILS TO WIN (+135)
(Note: I’m risking 1 unit to win 1.35 units)

The Bruins are coming off a 5-3 loss in Tampa Bay on Tuesday night and have lost 2 of their first three on a 4 game road trip that ends here tonight in New Jersey.  The other loss was a 4-2 loss in Carolina as big favorites.  The Bruins needed overtime to beat the Panthers on Monday night, and maybe should have lost that one as well.  On the other hand we have a hot Devils team who has won 3 straight and 5 of their last 6.  Their latest was a 5-1 win on Tuesday against the Jets at home, giving them two straight home victories since their 6-1 loss at home to the Bruins on January 4th.  The Devils have won 5 of their last 6 home games and are 12-7-1 at home this season.  Brodeur let in 6 goals on 27 shots last time these two teams met, and he will get the start again tonight looking for some revenge.  The Bruins haven’t looked on their top game during this mini road trip, while the Devils are playing maybe their best hockey of the year.  I’ll take the Devils as a nice sized home underdog.

Edmonton Oilers @ St Louis Blues – BLUES TO WIN IN REGULATION (-153)
(Note: I’m risking 1.53 units to win 1 unit)

The Edmonton Oilers have won just once in their last 7 games and 3 times in their last 16 games.  The Oilers will be missing a number of players including Jordan Eberly, rookie sensation Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and most likely Taylor Hall who was injured in warm ups on Tuesday (from taking a skate to the face).  Edmonton is just 6-17-1 on the road this season, and are averaging just 1.20 goals per game in their last 5.  St Louis has won two straight (both at home) and 6 of their last 7 games.  Their only loss was an overtime loss to the Canucks.  The Blues are a spectacular 19-3-4 at home this season, where they are holding opponents to just 1.76 goals per game.  Over their last 5 the Blues are allowing just 1 goal against per game (with three shutouts).  Halak will be in net for the Blues and he is 12-7-5 with a 2.08 GAA and .918 SV%.  The Blues are 7-0 in their last 7 vs a team with a winning % below .400 and they have beaten the Oilers in 4 straight games in St Louis.  I’ll take one of the leagues best home teams against an average Oilers team who are missing a handful of key players.  I’m going to avoid laying a ton of chalk tonight, and will take the Blues to get things done in regulation.  Note that In the Blues last 11 home wins they have needed extra time just twice.

Ottawa Senators @ San Jose Sharks – SENATORS TO WIN (+155)
(Note: I’m risking 1 unit to win 1.55 units)

I’ll be riding the Ottawa Senators again tonight, this time as fairly large sized underdogs. The Senators have lost just twice in their last 11 games, improving to 26-16-6 on the season.  The Senators are 12-7-5 on the road this season, and have won 4 straight road games.   The Sharks are also playing good hockey winning 7 of their last 9 games, but I don’t think they deserve to be this big of favorites against a hot Sens team. The Sharks are 3-1-1 in their last 5 home game, which includes a 2-1 shootout win against the Flames on Tuesday, a 2-1 win against the struggling Blue Jackets, and two home losses vs Vancouver and Anaheim – nothing too convincing there.  The Senators are averaging 3 goals per game on the season, while the Sharks are averaging a slightly lower 2.8 goals per game and 2.40 goals per game over their last 5.  The Sens are holding opponents to just 1.40 goals per game in their last 5, with Craig Anderson playing solid between the pipes. Note that Ryan Clowe may miss his second straight game tonight.  Both teams are playing good hockey right now, but the oddsmakers aren’t giving enough credit to Ottawa right now.  I’ll take the +155 on Ottawa as nice sized underdogs tonight.

Game of the Week has been sent through email – good luck tonight!
