It’s been a while since anyone on this sight has posted picks for you gambling degenerates out there, so I thought I’d do us the favor of stringing together a few of my favorite picks for tonight’s NHL lineups. Keep in mind I’m in no way, shape or form a sports analyst or even remotely someone who understands trends and percentages when it comes to betting. I’m strictly a major hockey fan that understands how the game works, what players and teams are doing well, and game matchups. With that said, here’s a list of picks for the NHL tonight. Ride with me, boys:
New York Rangers -1.5 Puck Line (+125) – The Rangers have been absolutely steamrolling teams since the early weeks of November with what seems to be a strong defensive presence and high scoring offense. Up against the Sharks who have been shaky as of recent I’d say the Rangers hold them to a couple goals at the most, but San Jose will be unable to stop New York’s offense.
Vegas Golden Knights -1.5 (+115) – There’s no money to be made with a straight money line bet, especially with Vegas at -220. VGK’s going up against arguably the worst team in the western conference in Arizona, a team that had a terrible start to the season but has been showing up in big games as of recent. Regardless I think Vegas’s offense will be firing off tonight and there’s nothing Arizona’s defense or goaltending will be able to do keep a decent volume of pucks out of their net.
Let’s keep it at two picks for my first try as the once great Locksmith. Get pucks deep, throw em’ on net and hit the spread, boys. Let’s make some money.
