NHL Picks for October 31st


Not a good Sunday for my NHL picks (although I did really well with my NFL picks – visit NFLBettingPicks.org if you haven’t been following those).  Our pick on the Kings yesterday should have been a winner, but Quick let in 3 goals on 16 shots as the Kings outshot Colorado 32-16 in a 3-2 loss.  The Senators deserved their win over the Leafs, and the Under pick fell apart in the a 4 goal second period.  Lets move on to tonight’s picks…

Only 3 games on the NHL board and two plays I like tonight within the same game…

Winnipeg Jets @ Florida Panthers – UNDER 5.5 GOALS (-115) and PANTHERS TO WIN (-145)

(Note: I’m risking 1.15 units to win 1 unit and 1.45 units to win 1 unit)

The 3-6-1 Winnipeg Jets will be in Florida to face the 6-4-0 Panthers tonight in a Southeast division rivalry game.  This will be the first time these two teams meet this season.  Last season Atlanta (Winnipeg) took 4 of the 6 meetings, but all 6 games were decided by one goal.  Ondrej Pavelec hasn’t been the confirmed starter, but he is 4-1-0 with a 2.04 GAA in six starts vs Florida lifetime (3-0 with a 1.63 GAA in his three starts in Florida).  Jose Theodore is confirmed for tonight’s game.  He is 4-2 on the season with a 2.53 GAA and .915 SV% on the year (he has 1 shutout on the year).  In these two teams 6 meetings last year 4 of the games went UNDER the total, including 4 of the last 5.  The Panthers success has come from the powerplay, as they converting 23.3% of their chances.  Winnipeg’s 77.3% PK may have troubles tonight if Florida has a few chances with the man advantage.  Note that the Panthers have won 3 of their last 4 including a home victory over the Islanders and road victories against Montreal and Buffalo.  Their only loss in that span was one goal loss against the Senators who scored in the final couple seconds.  Winnipeg has only managed 9 goals in 5 road games if we through out their 9-8 win over Philadelphia last week in a bizarre game.  The Panthers are averaging just 2 goals per game at home.  Note that the UNDER is 14-6 in the jets last 20 vs their division rivals, and 8-3 in their last 11 when playing on 1 days rest.  The UNDER is 15-6-4 in the Panthers last 25 home games, and 6-2-3 in their last 11 as a home favorite.  The UDNER is 13-3 in these two teams last 16 meetings in Florida.  The trend continues with these two teams playing the UNDER, and the Panthers continue to play solid hockey.  I’m putting a unit on the UNDER and the PANTHERS.
