Our 2 unit play on the Leafs +0.5 in regulation was a winner last night as they won 2-1 to force a Game 7 tonight. Unfortunately we had our first series play loss as the Ducks couldn’t finish off the Red Wings who won Game 6 Friday and then Game 7 Sunday in Anaheim.
Tonight there are two Game 7’s and I’ve got a play going in each. Members may also receive any Round 2 series plays this afternoon, as the lines are being released now for the series’ that are set.
2 UNIT = Toronto Maple Leafs @ Boston Bruins – MAPLE LEAFS +0.5 IN REGULATION (-102)
(Note: I”m risking 2.00 units to win 1.96 units)
This write up doesn’t differ from the 4 times we’ve taken the Leafs this series either to win or +0.5 in regulation (we are 3-1 in those plays). Toronto is getting great goaltending and with a solid penalty kill they always seem to be in these games with the Bruins. They’ve beaten the Bruins twice in Boston and I could see them shocking everyone with another victory tonight. I wouldn’t be surprised to see the Bruins get more chances to score than the Leafs, but right now they are failing to convert many of their chances (just two goals in their past two games) and James Reimer is playing great. Instead of taking the Maple Leafs to win I will take the generous price on them to at least force an overtime or win outright with a +0.5 in regulation bet.
2 UNIT = New York Rangers @ Washington Capitals – UNDER 5 GOALS (-120)
(Note: I”m risking 2.00 units to win 1.67 units)
The Rangers and Capitals will also come down to a deciding Game 7 in Washington tonight. So far we’ve seen totals in this series starting with Game 1 of 4, 1, 7, 7, 3, and 1. Every game that has been played in Washington has gone UNDER the total as Holtby has allowed just 2 goals against in those 3 games. I expect Henrik Lundqvist to match those efforts, as he has looked sharp lately allowing just 2 goals over his past 2 starts (including a shutout yesterday). These two teams played in a Game 7 last year and we saw a final score of 2-1 for 3 total goals scored. Game 7’s often see teams tighten up defensively as they know that one mistake can cost them their playoff lives. Both teams have the ability to score, but will be focusing on good defensive hockey tonight and with two hot goalies I like the UNDER here.
