NHL Free Pick | Canadiens at Devils
Even though the Jets moneyline didn’t pull through, yesterday was still a highly profitable day for us. Dustin Johnson was 4th on our list for the Mexico Championship, and netted us a nice +1000 return on our money. It’s wire-to-wire wins like that that make betting golf both fun and worthwhile.
I also correctly predicted a Patrik Laine goal last night, and he did find the back of the net, although it was the only one the Jets could manage to get behind the suddenly red-hot Darcy Kuemper. Nevertheless, we’re back to the grind today.

I’m picking the Canadiens for one reason…they’re hungry. After blowing a massive lead against their bitter rival Toronto Maple Leafs on Hockey Night in Canada Saturday night, you can bet the Habs will come to play tonight.
The Habs got out to a quick 3-0 first period lead, but saw the lead fading to the tune of 6 unanswered Leafs goals, resulting in a terrible 6-3 loss. The Canadiens would be in the playoffs if they started today, but at 73 points, they have the Hurricanes and Pens with 72 breathing down their necks. This is the time of year that sports betting gets fun in the NHL, let’s make some money together.
Simply put, Claude Julien and the entire Canadiens team know how important this game is, both mentally and in the standings. They will be firing on all cylinders, and expect Carey Price to have a great game between the pipes.
This two teams have similar goals per game numbers, with the Habs averaging 2.98 and the Devils averaging 2.92, but it’s defense that separates the two, with the Habs giving up 2.95 goals per game (18th) and the Devils at 3.39 (3rd).
NHL Free Pick: Montreal Canadiens ML -140

Going against conventional wisdom almost worked last night, but in the end, it was another loss. I’m dipping back in the NBA tonight with a total wager on Rockets at Hawks. I’ve crushed all the numbers from my top games today, gave my magic eight ball a little rub, and here’s what I came up Read More…
Is it just me, or does everything seem off in the sports world lately? My awesome hippie friend Luna told me it’s because Mercury is in Retrograde, while my CNN watchin’, conspiracy theorist homie is blaming Trump. Whatever the reason…BE CAREFUL when placing your bets!
