Welcome to the Sports Betting Tips for October 16th, 2015.
Who knew the Saints could actually play defense? They came out for that game motivated last night and it was looking very dicey at times. Luckily we managed to get the over 51 with exactly 52 points for a super close win.
We said “Under 6 runs seems like a lock” for the Mets vs Dodgers game and we called it. The Mets progress to the NLCS with a 3-2 victory over the Dodgers. They now play the Cubs.
And it was a perfect 3-0 day as we called Auburn -2 in the College Football. They won 30-27 in a tight one but hey everything was tight and we got there.
Let’s get to the betting tips for today:
NHL Betting Tips:
It’s very, very possible that the LA Kings do what the Pittsburgh Penguins and the Boston Bruins do the previous 2 nights – break their losing streak. And they probably will. But based on the way they have been playing and the Wild have been playing we have to go with Wild to win. The price of 2.45 odds is just too high considering the disaster that are the LA Kings. Now watch them clean the Wilds clocks.
We’re also on Red Wings to win in regulation. Detroit have a few injury problems but damn they have looked good this season. The media don’t seem to like that which is why they’re running with headlines today like “Banged up Red Wings”. But the Hurricanes have looked extremely poor and the Red Wings can get the win here.
We’ll also take Over 5.5 in Leafs vs Jackets. Both these teams can score and both can concede. They’re both winless and must be looking at this game as a game to win. Why wouldn’t you? We expect both the Toronto Maple Leafs and the Columbus Blue Jackets to throw everything they’ve got at this game – and get us a nice big Over 5.5 goals in the process.
Finally we’re on Ducks in regulation over the Avs. The Ducks have been a big disappoint this season. It’s been very frustrating to watch what should be an epic offense struggle so bad. But they’re playing against the Colorado Avalanche who seem to concede goals for fun at the moment and the Ducks are at home. We’ll take them to get a big W here.
MLB Betting Tips:
Big game today with the Blue Jays vs Royals. Big question is can the Blue Jays continue their momentum going into this one? Or will they be suffering an adrenaline hangover? It’s so common after a situation like the Jays vs Rangers 7th inning for a team just to be happy they’ve did that – and then can’t bring themselves up for the next game.
We’re going to take Over 8.5 runs at a nice +110 price. We think it will be competitive and we don’t think momentum will be that big going into this. The Jays not playing at home will probably be good for them honestly – it can be such a pressure cooker there.
These two teams aren’t exactly fans of each other and both should be fired up.
