Another winning day of NHL action.

We went 2-1 with a nice big underdog bet of the Blue Jackets +235 for the win.

Hell of a game that one was and the Jackets looked out of it. Amazing that they managed to come back like that but man I ain’t complaining.

Also won nice and easy with the Flames in Regulation. They did the business there as expected.

Our loss was with the Wild who got thumped by the Canucks.

Let’s get right into the bets for August 7th as we got 6 bloody games to get through.

NHL August 7th, 2020 Bets

1u on Barkov over 2.5 shots at -115 odds. This is in the Islanders vs Panthers game. Barkov is the captain for the Panthers and has to lead by example. In the first two games he had three shots and in Game 3, he had 5.

Now Game 3 is notable as Panthers were down 2-0 and needed the win. They’re now down 2-1 but still need the win. It’s extremely similar circumstances and so it is likely we see a similar performance from the Panthers and they go net hutning.

Predators vs Coyotes: I don’t have any bet on this one. I do think there is some decent value in the Coyotes line at +128. The problem is even if there is a value bet I still have to believe to some extent it will win. And I don’t know if it will. I don’t feel confident in it even though Darcy has played excellent. So no bet for me but if you want a bet I would take the Coyotes.

1u on Penguins in Regulation at -105 odds. They are playign the Montreal Canadiens. Honestly this is just a gut play more than anything else. Montreal are playing damn good and fully deserve to be up 2-1 in this series and if they go through I think it would be fair.

However I just have to think the Pens have the ability and they will at least be able to take this one to another game. Pens on the bounce back are a bit weak however I like them to do it here.

1u Leafs to win the 1st period at -130 odds. One note with this one is if it is tied at the end of the 1st it is a push. Look Toronto have came out really big and fast the last two games fighting for the puck and looking great. I’ve got to think they do similar here. It’s the secret of their success – actually trying.

1u Canucks/Wild 3rd Period = Highest Scoring at +225 odds. I did the math on this one prior to Game 1. I bet it in Game 1 and it was a loss however it was a win on Game 2 and 3. Might as well go back to the well. The math suggests it is worth a play.
