NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs – Senators at Penguins Betting Preview and Pick (5.15.17)

August 29, 2019

We witnessed yet another comeback from the Ducks last night and if you’ve got a piece of them to win once they went down 2-0 they paid out at a price of +350 or better. Betting a team live that goes down in the first period this post-season is becoming an absolute must book because of the insane value that it’s offered so far. Speaking of value the Ottawa Senators will bring their 9 and 3 record as money line underdogs into tonight’s game 2 battle with the Penguins and they’ll do it once again as massive underdogs. Ottawa opened up +160 on the money line, the Penguins looking to even the series, but at the time of shooting that line had moved to +175. My advice here? Take a value. The Sens win in the series opener was no fluke as they out shot the Pens 31 to 13 during 5 on 5 play and they dominated even strength possession. If it weren’t for a rash of bad penalties taken by Ottawa in the first the numbers could have been even more lopsided and I expect the upstart Sens to be much more disciplined this evening. Given their price I think would be a crime to not consider the last remaining Canadian team tonight. Pittsburgh’s public perception as being the defending Stanley Cup champ has overinflated their lines and I think the balloon is about to burst. Ottawa’s trap system has now been proven against the best the NHL can offer and I’d be going against everything I believe in if I didn’t go with Erik Karlsson and company here. I’m taking the Ottawa Senators tonight on the money line and I’ll live with the result if Crosby and Malkin take over and drag the Pens to victory. Speaking of Sid we haven’t done a beard comparison yet this round and I’m pretty confident that I’ve put some distance between me and the Pittsburgh captain. Let’s take a quick look. You might find yourself looking at the beard right away and saying like well that’s not that good but check out the mustache I’ve got these nice handlebar things, that’s probably the best I’ve ever done and if you look at Sid, like I’m blowing him out of the water, it’s not even close. It’s a good thing it’s a three pay month for the boys here at OddsShark so Craig’s going to have lots of money to wine and dine me, a nice T-bone steak. For my full preview of tonight’s game head over to and don’t forget about the OddsShark Live show that hits the air every weekday at 2:30 p.m. Eastern. Keep throwing those playoff beards in bankrolls you puckos and as always remember you lose 100% of the bets you don’t make.
