Today we will cover the NHL action taking place on Monday, August 17th and also look at the two Champions League games that are taking place on Tuesday and Wednesday.
As a reminder we have Inter Milan to win today. Although with the upsets in Europe lately man who knows. Let’s hope they can do it.
Alright lotta hockey today let’s see what we got:
NHL Bets: August 17th, 2020
Blue Jackets to win if Korpisalo is in net. 1u at +140. Look the bookies keep favouring the Tampa Bay Lightning and that is just a mistake. Should they be favourites? Maybe. But not this heavy a favourite. It’s ludicrous.
Jackets were a great team during the regular season. They sweeped Tampa last year. They beat the Toronto Maple Leafs and shut out the most expensive top line in the NHL twice. They have bounced back from every game so far where they have lost with a win.
Win or lose as long as they keep putting the Jackets at this price, I’ll back them. If they lose all the remaining games so be it.
Avs vs Coyotes. Highest Scoring Period = 3rd. 1u at +225 odds If you follow me at BetNHL.ca then you profited back yesterday with my highest scoring period in the Flames vs Stars game to be the 2nd. I enjoy that sort of prop bet too as it just makes for some fun sweating. We get to sweat the first two periods praying for no goals then hope for more in the final period. Anyway the trend in this series points to this especially with the Coyotes previous series against the Preds.
1u on Bruins to win at -125 odds. I hate it but if I have to pick a play it’s this one. Halak has never lost to the Canes when playing for the Bruins. Looks goddamn solid right now. Bruins could take this one with the momentum. Rask leaving might be the best thing for them honestly.
Blues/Canucks…Over? The line is at 5.5 but not many books covering it as I write this depending on who plays etc. As they had those last mintue scratches last night. I’m saying 1u at over 5.5 goals at +105 odds right now buuuut I’d wait till closer to the game to see who is there or not. So not really a bet more just something to look at and see what happens with the odds when team news comes out.

Champions League Bets:
3u on PSG to beat Leipzig. -130 odds for this one and I am happy with it. Great on Red Bull to get this far however PSG are just too strong I think. Yeah they will be without Verratti and Navas I believe however Di Maria is back and I like them to carry that momentum from last week here.
1u on Bayern Munich to score at least 3 goals. -130 odds. Gotta think Munich continue to march on and whether Lyon contest them or not Munich will be rather proficient in front of the net I expect.
