Recap: It was a mixed bag, it never makes it easy when the house keeps their share of your winners. A couple more goals scored in Nashville/Columbus and we would have been on Easy St. but instead, we’re taking the back alleyway home.

It is a MASSIVE 14 game slate to devour today. With pucks dropping starting at 1PM ET today, it’s an early start today as we skewer the posted lines in preparation for an afternoon feast. Back in a bit..

Recap: Not a lot to say. We tossed up all the best potential bets and gave it a shot. Detroit beating Chicago handily was the main contributor to a losing day for us but on we go into Sunday, the final day of our week.

Just three games to consider today. Let’s see if there’s any action for us to place, back in a bit.

Update: There’s just nothing out there today in the three games on the card that’s worthy of attracting some of our hard earned capital. It’s possible that things change a bit later in the day so check back. We like the Bruins to win but at -165 it just isn’t worth the risk, as sometimes the odds just aren’t worth the gamble. Part of the challenge is not only finding good bets to place but also finding good odds, you really need both. Maybe the Over 5.5 in the Bruins/Rangers but again, it is just too close to the edge, as we’ve got the total at 6.3 goals scored in that game and we really want an entire goal or better differential.  So unless some lines change or some starting goalies change, we’ll be sitting out today as we only bet opportunity, we never force a bet just to have action as that’s when things turn sour.

Recap: Nothing came together yesterday. It’s a good thing we didn’t place the Bruins at -165 as they lost 6-2 to the Rangers but the Over, which was really the only possible bet of the day did roll right in thanks to the defensive breakdowns of Boston.

Thursday, February 25, 2021

Outcome: +9.40

Team(s) Vs. Time (ET) Bet Type Odds Amount Status Result Total
Chicago @Columbus 7:00pm ML +106 15 Locked W  +15.90
Carolina @Tampa Bay 7:00pm ML +132 12 Locked L -12
Carolina @Tampa Bay 7:00pm O 6 8 Locked L  -8
Edmonton @Vancouver 10:00pm U 6.5 15 Locked W  +13.50

A big pile of games to sift through today, let’s see what the new day brings.

Update: Just two games of interest out of ten. Just not a lot out there with the matchups. It is possible that once starting goalies become known throughout the day, that something else interesting may pop up.

Recap: Well, it would have been better if we didn’t get involved in the Tampa and Carolina game at all but a win is a win and we’ll take it. The game was an afternoon addition after news came out that McElhinney was going to be in net for Tampa (who has looked shaky to start this season) and also figuring that Carolina would be playing with a lot more emotion after being blanked the night before by Tampa. We were right on, as Carolina out played Tampa Bay with 32 shots on net vs. just 22 for Tampa Bay. Carolina won the face off battle too winning 55% to Tampa’s 45%. On top of it all, we were even getting odds at +132. You’d be hard pressed to find anything in the box score that went Tampa Bay’s way last night. None of it mattered, as Tampa Bay cruised to a 3-1 win with McElhinney making 31 saves. Go figure? But our two bigger bets both rolled in as we won again with Chicago as a dog and the O/U 6.5 line for Edmonton and Vancouver was just plain wrong — we pounced and caught a winner there.

Wednesday, February 24, 2021

Outcome: -22.50

Team(s) Vs. Time (ET) Bet Type Odds Amount Status Result Total
Florida Dallas 5:00pm ML -137 12.50 Locked  L -12.50
NY Rangers @Philadelphia 7:00pm ML  +106 10 Locked  L  -10

We have seven games to sort through today, let’s see what the day has in store for us.

Recap: What a smoke show. Double-L on the day. The Rangers took a while to get going, by the time they did the lead was too much to overcome. They closed the gap to one goal but couldn’t quite catch up, losing 4-3 to the Flyers.

Edmonton @Vancouver 10:00pm U 6.5 10 Locked  L -10

Six games on the card today, let’s get to work and see where opportunity lies for Tuesday.

Recap: Thank you Chicago. We’ll take back-to-back wins to start this week. We were also riding high on the late-night under bet heading into the 3rd period with Vancouver up 3-1 with 3 goals to give in the 3rd for our under 6.5 to roll right in.. everything was going great until Edmonton scored THREE times in the 3rd period to win and to push the total over by half a goal.  :roll:  Ah well.. that’s sports betting.

Rolling into Week 6 with some lessons learned, let’s see what the week has in store.

Recap: Now that was a much better result. It’s always much nicer when you win everything you place. I almost placed Florida yesterday too (which also would have been a winner) but backed away from it at the last minute due to some positive shot data for Dallas but in hindsight, should have tossed another 8 on Florida last night too. Going through the results of every game played yesterday, like I do each morning, the model was terrific. The only game we got wrong (didn’t place) was Kings over the Blues as L.A. kept St. Louis out of their net entirely last night. Sometimes, a goalie just gets hot but we stayed away from that game mainly due to a goal advantage for L.A. in certain scenarios and it was enough of a potential advantage to thankfully scare us off. Still though, 7-1 correctly picking the winners yesterday in the eight games on the card – it is an encouraging sign.

Odds are from DraftKings. Your odds may differ.


Used for reference. We treat all bets each day as an overall block so it is important to maintain the ratios between the bets when adjusting to your personal limits.


Pending: We are waiting for information, usually it’s confirmation of who the starting goalie’s will be in the game for both teams. Wagers are created each morning using the expected goalies. If expectations change, we reevaluate the bet before locking it in.

Warning: Something we are concerned about has occurred and we are waiting for confirmation. The bet remains a pending bet but it’s leaning more toward a no bet with the latest undesirable developments.

No bet: Something has changed that has caused us to no longer consider this wager.

Likely: We’re waiting on one or two confirmations to come in but all signs point to this being a good bet.

Locked: Place the bet.


Calculated using a 10% “vig” for straight bets and over/under bets. The vig is included in the odds for a ML (Money Line) bet.
