NHL Playoffs Betting Preview and Pick (05.23.17)

August 17, 2019

I’m back after a short vacation on the golf course and if you couldn’t tell by my lovely golf tan and my general ugly disposition, I lost a ton of money on the links this past weekend and I’m now looking to make it all back on the ice. Tonight’s 6th game between the Sens and Pens offers me a great opportunity to do just that with Ottawa opening as a +125 home underdog as they face elimination for just the first time this postseason. Before you get too triggered, yes I did watch Game 5 and yes I know how badly this Sens got blasted. I do think the Pens have a slight advantage going into tonight’s possibly decisive game with how good Matt Murray has been since he stepped in for Marc-Andre Fluery and with how much momentum Pittsburgh has after that 7-0 shellacking in Blitzburgh but Ottawa has proven its resiliency all postseason long and they’re now 4-2 straight up after losing since the end of the regular season. Also it seems ridiculous to me that a team fighting for its playoff life on home ice could be deemed such a huge underdog. The Sens have been making us rich this spring and I may be getting a little bit greedy here but I want one more chance at a big payday and I’ll be backing Ottawa on the money line tonight at a price of +125. This could also be a case of me being a little bit stubborn but I will gladly die on this hill with the Sens going 4-4 straight up this postseason as an underdog of +130 or better and with this being the 1st time since they played the Penguins back on March 23rd that they’ve been an underdog of +125 or bigger at the Canadian Tire Center. They happen to win that game by a score of 2-1 and I’m predicting a similar result tonight with Eric Karlsson and Craig Anderson both receiving some serious rest after they were both pulled from an out of reach game 5. Come on Sens, let’s get one more big underdog cash for the people. For my full preview of tonight’s game head over to By the beard of Burns let’s grow those Bankrolls tonight and don’t forget you, lose 100% of the bets that you don’t make.
