Another awesome night 🙂 2 for 2 with our big underdog pick on Carolina (+170) cashing. The Hurricanes got things done in a shootout to get past the Capitals 3-2 and stay in the playoff hunt. Our pick on the Coyotes just barely pulled through with a 2-1 win against the Stars that they probably didn’t deserve (Bryzgalov played great for us).
I have hit 9 of my last 10 plays (doesn’t include the winning free play I gave Friday) and 2 of those 9 plays were Game of the Week and Game of the Month plays. I look to continue this HOT run today with 5 NHL games on the betting board. If you aren’t already signed up you want to click here to sign up free for my exclusive picks I don’t post here!
I quickly wanted to note that those looking for Steve’s golf picks again (I emailed out his picks last week and we cashed a nice 38 to 1 $$) you will need to visit http://www.golfbanker.com to get his picks this week. Enjoy and lets cash another big winner!
Lets get to our NHL pick…
NHL Betting Picks for Wednesday, March 30th:
New York Rangers @ Buffalo Sabres – RANGERS TO WIN (+105) – The Rangers haven’t played since their 1-0 win in Boston on Saturday night, and have won 6 of their last 7 games. Buffalo is on their second of a back to back after losing to the Maple Leafs last night 4-3. Miller goes again tonight for the Sabres. The Rangers continue their great defensive play allowing just 1.20 goals per game over their last 5 games. Note that the Rangers are 6-1 in their last 7 road games, and 5-1 in their lat 6 games as a road underdog. The Sabres are just 4-9 in their last 13 vs Atlantic opponents division. Also note that the Rangers have won 2 of these two teams 3 meetings this season, and the road team is 5-2 in their last 7 meetings. Although Buffalo is playing for a playoff spot, the Rangers are going to be equally motivated as they sit only 2 points up on the Sabres and 2 points back from the Canadiens with a game in hand. The Rangers are 4-1-3 on 3 days rest or more, and go against a Buffalo team who were in a somewhat draining one goal battle last night. I like the Rangers as slight underdogs here tonight.
New York Islanders @ New Jersey Devils – UNDER 5 GOALS (-105) – The New York Islanders have lost 2 straight heading into tonight and 5 of their last 7 games. Rick DiPietro will get the start in net tonight for the Islanders, who is just 8-11-4 on the year. The Devils have lost their jump, losing 5 of their last 6 games including 3 straight heading into tonight. Martin Brodeur will be between the pipes for the Devils tonight and he has only allowed more than 2 goals twice in his last 17 starts. The Islanders don’t score much on the road averaging just 2.26 goals per game, while the Devils are averaging just 2 goals per game on the season and 0.80 goals per game over their last 5 games. The UNDER has been a crazy trend for the Devils in the second half of the season, even with most totals set at 5 goals. The UNDER is 35-13-10 in their last 58 games overall, 18-7-3 in their last 28 home games, and 6-1-2 in their last 9 games as a home favorite. Despite a shakey DiPietro in net for the Islanders I still have this game going UNDER the posted total. The Devils just don’t seem to score many goals, and Brodeur playing the way he has should be able to have another great game against this Islanders team that struggles in New Jersey. Take the UNDER.
