Sunday April 25, 2021

Outcome: -16.00

Team(s) Vs. Time (ET) Bet Type Odds Amount Status Result Total
Philadelphia New Jersey 6:00pm PL +125 10 No Bet
Philadelphia New Jersey 6:00pm O 6 10 No Bet
Columbus @Tampa Bay 7:00pm U 6.5 6 No Bet
Tampa Bay Columbus 7:00pm PL -112 16 Locked L (4-3) -16

Recap: We took a stab at winning the week and like a perfectly hit 7-Iron over water that just didn’t have enough to get there, you realize after the splash that well darn, I should have hit the 6-Iron. Tough loss this day in our attempt to get back on top. Stanley Cup winning goaltender Vasilevskiy in net, at home in Tampa Bay on a team that is one of the best teams in the NHL against a struggling Columbus team that has nothing much to play for except for playing out the string, all seemed like a good bet to place, even if we were still giving odds. The money line odds were -310 on Tampa (that’s how strongly they were favored) but in the end, it’s hockey, and Columbus took Tampa Bay to overtime which killed our puck line bet and the week.

Recap: Bad days happen too. While we lost a bunch of games this day, there weren’t any big bets, just a smattering of small bets. It still stings a little but the week is still in reach. We are down just a little rolling into Sunday because of this; we were ahead of the book until this mess happened.

Carolina Florida 7:00pm ML -113 6 10 Locked W (4-2) +8.85
Columbus @Tampa Bay 7:00pm ML +220 5 Locked L (1-3) -5

Dallas @Detroit 7:30pm U 5.5 5 Locked L (3-7) -5
Ottawa @Vancouver 10:00pm ML +125 10 Locked W (3-0) +12.50

Recap: What an interesting day this turned into. There were bets all over the board initially and then more piled on once starting goalies were known. In reality we won half and lost half but thanks to the bigger winners coming in, like underdog Ottawa shutting out Vancouver and Pittsburgh doing what they should have done yesterday too by blowing past New Jersey were all good winners for us.

Wednesday April 21, 2021

Outcome: -7.00

Team(s) Vs. Time (ET) Bet Type Odds Amount Status Result Total
Nashville @Chicago 7:00pm U 5.5 5 7 Locked L (4-5) -7

Recap: There wasn’t a lot to bet on this day. The one half-hearted bet we did place started well for us, 1-1 after the first period. Then after two periods it was 3-1 Nashville but we were still in it — until we weren’t. Four more goals were scored in the third period, three by Chicago to bring the game into OT and then for Chicago to win it in OT, was a very strong comeback by the Blackhawks. We are running a little behind the book this week but a lot of hockey yet to be played.

Tuesday April 20, 2021

Outcome: +0.20

Team(s) Vs. Time (ET) Bet Type Odds Amount Status Result Total
Columbus 7:00pm PL +118 7.50 No Bet
NY Rangers NY Islanders 7:00pm ML +110 5 Locked L (1-6) -5
Pittsburgh New Jersey 7:00pm PL -106 5 Locked L (7-6) -5
Carolina @Tampa Bay 7:00pm ML +102 20 5 10 Locked W (4-1) +10.20
Detroit @Dallas 8:30pm U 5.5 5 No Bet

Recap: It was just a matter of time before Carolina beat Tampa Bay. We were getting odds yesterday but lost in OT and we were getting odds again today where they won 4-1 – it’s good to stick with a conviction sometimes. The kick in the teeth though was the Pittsburgh and New Jersey game that we had the puck line bet on. After two periods of play, Pittsburgh was up 6-0 on New Jersey! An easy puck line win but then.. the unthinkable happened as while Pittsburgh did score one more goal in the 3rd period to push their total to 7, New Jersey SCORED SIX GOALS IN THE THIRD PERIOD to wipe our puck line bet off the board as Pittsburgh ultimately won by just one goal, 7-6. Unbelievable.

Monday April 19, 2021

Outcome: -6.50

Team(s) Vs. Time (ET) Bet Type Odds Amount Status Result Total
@Tampa Bay 7:00pm ML +108 5 Locked L (2-3) -5
Chicago @Nashville 8:00pm U 5.5 6 Locked L (2-5)  -6
Ottawa @Calgary 9:00pm U 6 7 Locked   (4-2) Push
San Jose @Vegas 10:00pm U 6 5 Locked  W (2-3)  +4.50

Recap: It’s never easy betting against Tampa Bay but taking an underdog in Carolina that is capable of winning, who was also getting odds, always makes for an attractive bet. Carolina took them to OT but it was Tampa that scored the winning goal in the extra period to send us packing. We sprinkled some more under bets into the mix that we split on but thankfully, since there were no strong bets this day, we didn’t lose all that much to open up with on a Monday.

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 bet.
PPD The game has been postponed.
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), PL (Puck Line) and Parlay bets.
