Week 9: Mar 15 – Mar 21

Final Result: WIN +15.97

Sunday, March 21, 2021

Outcome: -5

Team(s) Vs. Time (ET) Bet Type Odds Amount Status Result Total
Dallas Nashville 8:30pm PL +143 5 Locked L -5

Recap: Ah well. Things got off to a good start as Dallas went up early on Nashville 2-0 but then the Predators clawed their way back and ultimately won it in a shootout 4-3. It was a messy day in the NHL overall and I’m really glad we stayed away from it.  We’ve been doing a good job lately of staying away from some of the traps. Dallas was a heavy favorite (-180) and lost outright, as did Pittsburgh (-225) to New Jersey and Vegas (-182) to L.A. The only score that made any sense was Tampa Bay (-150) beating Florida 5-3. What amazes me in hockey betting is the volume of bets and how much the money sways towards the favorites. It’s the favorites, at those ridiculous odds, that attract the most money but yesterday, it was New Jersey (+190), L.A. (+157) and Nashville (+155) that paid out handsomely. It makes you wonder doesn’t it? We’ll put a green bow on Week 9 as a week that the winning flowed our way, it’s nice to win one from the book. The book has turned into an adversarial and competitive foe but I like how things are turning.

Recap: Thank you Edmonton! We were trading blows with the book all afternoon and into the early evening, they’d take some capital, then we’d take it back, we’d go ahead, just for the book to take it back. It was a slugfest against the book but then in the nightcap, where we went hardest on Edmonton to best Winnipeg they did exactly that, winning 4-2 which propels us into a comfortable lead for the week heading into Sunday. A good week this week so far as we’ve managed to scrounge our way into the victory circle each day but one.

San Jose St. Louis 9:00pm ML +130 5 Locked L -5

Recap: A solid day and week of winning as both Over/Under bets rolled in and taking San Jose as an underdog almost worked out until they lost to the Blues in a shootout. Still, getting good odds and losing in a shootout just goes to show how close we were to converting that bet too. We haven’t been finding any big bets this week, just some little ones but you can’t be greedy, it’s always about taking what you’re given in this and really, any time the profit flows our way, that is a good thing. I’ve been refining as we go too and I do feel while there is always a chance of getting slapped upside the head by the book, and have, and will again, I do like where things are settling right now. We’re finding more winners and getting close on some losers too.

Outcome: -2.58

Team(s) Vs. Time (ET) Bet Type Odds Amount Status Result Total
Tampa Bay Chicago 7:00pm PL +106 7 Locked W +7.42
NY Islanders Philadelphia 7:00pm PL +175 5 Locked L  -5

Dallas @Detroit 7:30pm O 5.5 10 No Bet  
Arizona @Anaheim 10:00pm O 5.5 5 Locked L  -5

Recap: Ah well. I knew I’d be kicking myself in the morning for taking the Arizona at Anaheim Over and here we are. With a late goalie change for Detroit we backed away from what earlier in the day were shaping up to be two solid bets. It was a good thing too as Detroit beat Dallas 3-2. We also took a shot with the Isles at +175, when you’re getting good odds it’s worth taking a stab but they don’t all work out and at +175, that’s a bet that is a hard one to win every time. In hockey, pucks bounce in weird ways and underdogs that seemingly have zero chance at winning.. well.. do.. so taking a numbers backed stab at some good paying odds is never a bad strategy. Monday would have been a winner for us so we lose a little here on Thursday for our first loss of the week. The week is still however, wide open for victory!

Philadelphia @NY Rangers 7:30pm O 6 5 No Bet
Montreal @Winnipeg 9:00pm ML -110 5 Locked L -5
San Jose @Vegas 10:00pm ML +192 5 No Bet
Edmonton @Calgary 10:00pm ML +108 5 Locked W +5.40

Recap: Edmonton ripped through favorite Calgary 7-3 to push us into the win column for Wednesday. Montreal forced their game to OT with a late goal but couldn’t continue that momentum as they lost for us in OT. So close to a clean sweep. We backed away from the Philadelphia/NY Rangers Over bet just because of the COVID impact on the Rangers and losing their coaches for the game but the Rangers scored NINE goals on their own. San Jose would have been a loser but that game was a lot closer than +192 odds would seem to indicate as the Sharks lost 5-4 in a nail biter. It was good to back off the bet, it was a loser after all but at +192, it was an interesting wager to place given that the teams were a lot more evenly matched than the book makers seemed to think.

Update: The server switch is temporarily on hold so let’s look at some NHL for today. I didn’t look at all yesterday but I did look at the final scores and I suspect things would have gone well. We’ve been on the Florida PL lately and that came in, we’ve pretty much bet the PL every game against Buffalo and Washington blanked them 6-0. The scores just looked like where we’ve been finding value lately.

Recap: Don’t go spending it all in one place but this day, we win! And in emphatic fashion. Not only did we dance around Carolina, who lost to Detroit 4-2.. but the Colorado/Anaheim Over hit early as Colorado ran over Anaheim 8-4 in a game that saw precious little defense.

Monday Update: Taking a hiatus today as we’re mid-server move and I need to focus on getting some parts of the site back up and operational. Back tomorrow.

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.

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

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

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.
