Week 11 Final Result: WIN +43.40

Sunday, April 4, 2021

Outcome: +1.62

Team(s) Vs. Time (ET) Bet Type Odds Amount Status Result Total
Arizona @Anaheim 9:00pm ML -136 9 Locked W (3-2) +6.62
Arizona @Anaheim 9:00pm O 5.5 5 Locked L (3-2)  -5

Update: There is not a lot to go on in the six games today but what it does ensure is our third winning week in a row. What is interesting to note with the lines today is what started to happen yesterday with the book counter acting all the under bet winners lately by very softly lowering some lines. Earlier in the season when this same thing happened they very obviously made a change one day. They’re being a little more sneaky about it today by softly lowering yesterday and then again today. All but one game has a total of 5.5 but that one game (Washington at New Jersey) is currently at just 6. It’s why, the value play today is to hunt for an over to beat them at their own game.

The favorite game of the day is Florida to beat Columbus but at -175 and no other game to pair it with to help lower those odds, meh, -175 is just ridiculous and they aren’t bets we place as in hockey, pucks bounce in strange ways and heavy favorites can and do lose. Even Arizona at -136 is a bit steep but it’s a better bet to place just due to the odds and it’s our second favorite game of today. You could parlay Arizona and Florida too, that wouldn’t be a bad bet at +175, it’s just a little risky given the game times. I prefer when we parlay to have games around the same times just so we know before placing the bet that there isn’t going to be any funny business with the starting goalies but if you want to take a chance that Arizona and Anaheim will pan out (currently the projection is Hill vs. Gibson) then go ahead and see if you can cash a +175 ticket.

Recap: I hope you cashed that Florida/Arizona +175 parlay as it was a winner. I’m not sure why I didn’t “officially” place it but we still walked away winners yet again on Sunday with Arizona’s OT win over Anaheim.

Saturday, April 3, 2021

Outcome: -9.46

Team(s) Vs. Time (ET) Bet Type Odds Amount Status Result Total
Pittsburgh @Boston 1:00pm U 5.5 8 Locked L (5-7) -8
Nashville Chicago 3:00pm ML -115 15 Locked W (3-0) +13.04
Nashville Chicago 3:00pm U 5.5 6 Locked W (3-0)  +5.40
Ottawa @Montreal 7:00pm U 6 8 7 Locked L (6-3)  -7
Philadelphia @NY Islanders 7:00pm O 5.5 8 Locked L (2-3)  -8
Colorado St. Louis 9:00pm PL +110 5 Locked L (2-1)  -5

Recap: Things did not pan out as well as the other days this week as we give a little back to the book on Saturday. Nashville both beating Chicago and coming in as an under was a big win for us but it wasn’t enough to cover the losses from the other bets.

Friday, April 2, 2021

Outcome: +14.40

Team(s) Vs. Time (ET) Bet Type Odds Amount Status Result Total
Toronto @Winnipeg 8:00pm U 6 8 Locked W (2-1) +7.20
Calgary @Edmonton 9:00pm U 6 8 Locked W (2-3) +7.20
Colorado St. Louis 9:00pm PL +108 5 No Bet
Arizona @Anaheim 10:00pm ML -124 8 No Bet
Arizona @Anaheim 10:00pm O 5.5 5 No Bet

Recap: Betting the Under’s have been great for us and it was another good night for the under bettors almost across the board. The book will have to adjust but until they do, the gravy train keeps rolling with yet another day in the green. As it turns out, both Arizona bets that we walked away from were winners too (including the unusual Over) but sometimes bets fall apart like that one did due to a goalie change later in the day that didn’t leave us as comfortable as to how things looked earlier in the day.

Thursday, April 1, 2021

Outcome: +5.50

Team(s) Vs. Time (ET) Bet Type Odds Amount Status Result Total
Florida Detroit 7:00pm PL +106 5 Locked L (3-2) -5
Pittsburgh @Boston 7:00pm U 5.5 11 Locked W (4-1)
Montreal @Ottawa 7:00pm U 6 12 8

NY Rangers @Buffalo 7:00pm PL -106 5 Locked L (3-2)
Carolina @Chicago 8:00pm U 6 7 Locked L (4-3) -7
Minnesota @Vegas 10:30pm U 5.5 6 Locked W (3-2) +5.40

Recap: The Under bets have been all the rage this week and the book has been taking their lumps because of it. I suspect we’ll see another move by the book where they drop the Over/Under lines aggressively just to attempt to scare people off the Under bets. We took a couple stabs at some small PL bets that didn’t work out, we had both winners but they each won by just one goal but our two biggest bets were both winners that helped carry the day for us. With four days down and three to go, we’re rolling into Friday UNDEFEATED this week!

Wednesday, March 31, 2021

Outcome: +9.00

Team(s) Vs. Time (ET) Bet Type Odds Amount Status Result Total
Toronto @Winnipeg 7:30pm U 6.5 10  Locked W (4-1) +9

Recap: A perfect low scoring 4-1 win by Toronto over Winnipeg is all we needed to put ourselves in the winner’s circle for the third straight day. There was precious little to bet on even though there were five games in play. You could see Buffalo starting to turn the corner over the last few games, the puck line bet that we were feasting on first slowly started to disappear until Buffalo beat Philadelphia 6-1 to end their record setting losing streak at 18 on this day. Some other odd results too with L.A. beating Vegas 4-2, Colorado thumping Arizona 9-3 (maybe that score isn’t that weird but nine goals is a lot of goals in just three periods) and even San Jose beating Minnesota 4-2, I’m glad we stayed away from all of it except for of course, our one winner as we didn’t fall for any of the traps that the book tried to set for us yesterday. We’ve been doing a good job of sniffing those out lately and continuing to find value where there is value to be had.

Tuesday, March 30, 2021

Outcome: +18.21

Team(s) Vs. Time (ET) Bet Type Odds Amount Status Result Total
NY Rangers Washington 7:00pm ML -108 6 8 Locked W (5-2) +7.41
Florida Detroit 7:00pm PL +110 5 No Bet
Edmonton @Montreal 7:00pm U 6.5 7 Locked W (0-4) +6.30
Dallas @Nashville 8:00pm U 5.5 5 Locked W (2-3)

Recap: It was clean sweep Tuesday as we cut through the book like a hot knife through butter. We’re into our third week now of consistent wins. This can change, the book has adjusted in several areas already and will continue to but we’re still finding good value in spots.

Monday, March 29, 2021

Outcome: +4.13

Team(s) Vs. Time (ET) Bet Type Odds Amount Status Result Total
Pittsburgh NY Islanders 7:00pm ML -108 5 Locked W (2-1)
Edmonton @Toronto 7:00pm U 6.5 5 Locked W (3-2)
Minnesota @San Jose 10:30pm U 6 5 Locked L (3-4)

Recap: I’ll always take two out of three. Minnesota and San Jose weren’t too far off but knotted 3-3 headed into overtime in today’s National Hockey League means that 7 goals will be scored.  Monday was a good day overall though, as we start the week with house money in our pocket.

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.
