Recap: The Bruins have some issues and lost 1-0 to New Jersey but Nashville came through for us as an underdog to even the score. It was another winning week here at the Daily Bettor as we’ve caught a bit of a tail wind lately.

Recap: Things got sketchy in a hurry until Nashville swooped in and almost saved us. The parlay was a flop and Edmonton/Toronto when into OT 3-3 so that pushed the ultimate total to 7 as Toronto won 4-3. Thankfully Nashville came through on all fronts by silencing Chicago 3-1 and paid out handsomely.

Friday, March 26, 2021

Outcome: -7.10

Team(s) Vs. Time (ET) Bet Type Odds Amount Status Result Total
New Jersey @Washington 7:00pm U 6 6 Locked W  +5.40
San Jose @Arizona 10:00pm ML +102 12.50 Locked L  -12.50

Recap: With only four games to choose from, it wasn’t like San Jose was a stretch but our fortunes were certainly tied to that one game, which they lost 5-2. Though three of those five goals came in the 3rd period as Arizona essentially won that game in one period of play. We projected 28 shots on goal for Arizona and they had.. 28 but we were projecting 31 shots on goal for San Jose and they only managed a scant 22 shots on goal. It was the big difference maker as the San Jose offense went cold at an unfortuitous time for us but thanks to the Caps shutting out the Devils and winning 4-0 the Under bet rolled in which helped to soften the blow of the San Jose loss.

Update: It’s a tough slate today. Usually when there are 11 games to choose from (like there are today) there’s opportunity to be had somewhere and while there is opportunity still, I did want to just tip the cap to the book today as they’ve done a stellar job of setting lines – along with some almost spot on totals. Such a good job in fact on the totals, that I’m hard pressed to find even one that makes sense to bet. There are days (there was one in particular last week) where the lines were slop but today, they are unfortunately for us, fairly pristine but that doesn’t mean we can’t still find value by getting creative, they’re just making it harder on us to extract that value today.

Recap: Some days the bets come together easily and then there was this day. It was a messy card but we ultimately managed to do something positive with it. The rest of the world has caught up to betting on the PL against Buffalo, some books won’t even take the bet anymore but there’s still a few last gasps left in that line before the book does something nuts with it to keep people off it. The rest came together quite well and apart from really just Chicago beating Florida.. again.. there ultimately weren’t a lot of surprises yesterday. We stayed away from many games like Dallas and Tampa Bay because there were almost as many positive indicators for Dallas as there were for Tampa Bay and while Dallas did win 4-3, there’s just no way we’re ever betting against Tampa Bay when Vasilevskiy is in goal. Overall though, it was another good day for the good guys.

Wednesday, March 24, 2021

Outcome: +7.20

Team(s) Vs. Time (ET) Bet Type Odds Amount Status Result Total
Calgary @Ottawa 5:00pm U 6 8 Locked W +7.20
San Jose L.A. 10:30pm ML -106 8 No Bet
Winnipeg @Vancouver 10:30pm U 6 6 Locked Push

Recap: Ottawa set the tone for us with a 3-1 win over Calgary and since we were on the Under, that was a good thing. We backed away from San Jose without Quick in net for L.A. but San Jose won anyway 4-2 and in the nightcap, the Canucks did their part for our Under bet by scoring just one goal but Winnipeg decided to tee off instead of keeping the total low and scored five on their own which turned that bet into a push. A win on the day though and we’ll take it to keep us in the green and ahead of the book going into Thursday.

Tuesday, March 23, 2021

Outcome: -3.70

Team(s) Vs. Time (ET) Bet Type Odds Amount Status Result Total
New Jersey @Philadelphia 7:00pm O 6 7 Locked W +6.30
Florida @Chicago 8:00pm ML -150 10 Locked L -10

Recap: There wasn’t a lot to go on. We almost walked away from the Florida bet too when it was announced that Driedger was going to be in net for Florida instead of Bobrovsky but the fundamentals were all still there so we left it alone. Florida this season was 4-0 against Detroit, with three out of the four games won by 2 goals or more.. but now they are 4-1 as Chicago managed a 3-2 underdog win to give us the red L for the day.

St. Louis

10:00pm Par +144 10 Locked W  +14.40

Recap: All we do is win-win-win! OK.. maybe not, but the winning’s been good lately and the book is looking a little nervous. Another solid day for us as we found some good odds and enjoyed the ride. The reach of the day was probably the NY Islanders PL bet but at +185 it seemed like it was worth just a sprinkle. They won, but by one goal so that didn’t turn into a high return winner for us. However, the parlay at the end of the night did. It’s just dumb to take a team like Colorado on the money line at -240 at those odds, even if our indicators were strong that Colorado should win, -240 is just ridiculous but parlay it with another favorite like Vegas at -150, that we also felt had strong indicators for a win and voila, now we’re getting odds at +144. With both teams winning 5-1, that propelled us into the winner’s circle for today.

We’ve been living on a couple puck lines lately, anyone playing against Buffalo, whenever Tampa Bay plays a weak opponent and sometimes when Greiss is in net for Detroit but this is a giant whack-a-mole game and the book will adjust. It’s just like when we were winning earlier in the season on Boston, the book hadn’t caught up in the early part of the season – but they did. We haven’t found much opportunity in Boston in many weeks. Also, what a shame that the Edmonton @ Montreal game was postponed in the afternoon, we were locked in and ready to pounce on that one as Edmonton has been good to us lately and it was great to get them as an underdog but no luck, they probably had so many bets on Edmonton from all the people reading this column that they had to shut the game down! Ha. OK.. maybe that wasn’t the reason.

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 bet.
PPD The game has been postponed.
Locked Place the bet.
