Hit the Senators at +160 last night and will look to keep it going tonight. So far have bet 11 playoff games going 6-5, +3.25 Units on those plays. As those who follow my hockey plays already know I’m primarily a dog player and that doesn’t change with two game sevens on the slate tonight.
Penguins (+150): This line a slap in the face to the Penguins. Yes the Caps are at home and they are the better team, but for the Pens to be getting +150 is nuts. The past few games have primarily been played in the Pens end and they’ve struggled to generate much offense. I think tonight they’ll go out of their way to be aggressive early. They’ve played a few shaky games since going up 3-1 in the series but I think decision making and aggressiveness will be key tonight. The Capitals were the best team in the NHL pretty much all year and I think all the pressure is on them in this game. The longer the Pens hang around I think the more likely we are to see some nerves from the home squad.
Oilers (+110): I thought before this series that Edmonton was the better team and now as we approach game 7 I still think the same. If the Oilers didn’t blow a seemingly insurmountable 3-0 lead with 4 minutes left last Friday this series would already be over. All the Ducks history with Game 7 losses is well documented and you know they are all thinking about that tonight. This Ducks team is full of veterans who knows their chances to make deep playoff runs are dwindling. It wouldn’t surprise me a bit to see them tight and nervous tonight. The Oilers on the other hand are playing with house money. This is a team that should be a good for the next decade and deep playoff runs should start becoming the norm. I already think they are the more talented team and I expect them to be looser tonight too. That’s good enough for me to get involved at plus money.
