The NHL is back and we are very happy to see this. We cannot complain from the KHL but there is definitely bigger interest when the games are coming from NHL not KHL. The first game after the break is going to be between Carolina Hurricanes and Philadelphia Flyers.
Actually, this is going to be our tip as well. We believe that here we can possibly find a good market and price for Carolina Hurricanes which team is in a losing streak for the past 5 games. They are usually, playing incredible at home as they were in one home serie of 4 games without lost as they won even against Columbus Blue Jackets but they the team started playing weaker and they are now in this whole.
After all we believe that they had enough time to rest and think what is wrong currently with the team and from tonight they can start winning again. The Hurricanes are one solid and stable team and we really think they have everything to win against the Flyers who are not that strong recently.
After the two amazing predictions from the Russian KHL we are heading to make a third one. In the days of NHL break the best league after it is the Russian KHL and we think that there are pretty good games which we can follow.
The next game which stopped on our attention is the game between Jokerit and Dinamo Minsk. Actually, the game is from the Russian KHL but the teams are strongly not Russians. The team of Jokerit is a Finnish team while Dinamo Minsk is a team from Belarus. Here, it is very hard to be said which of those teams is the better one but we think that the Finnish one is going to take this game as they are the home team and they are showing some signs of a waking.
We believe that they posses one good and strong team and they might fight with the big teams from Russia for the title here but everything this must pass first the battle for the playoffs which will be hard and difficult. The last few games between these two teams were very severe as nothing was clear and we saw overtimes but here we think that Jokerit will try to take a win finally against this opponent and they will try to do it even in the regular time.
The next tip which we are going to make for the Ice Hockey, which will be last for this week will be again from the Russian KHL. The game is between one of the best teams at the moment SKA St. Petersburg and one of the most unpredictable teams - Tractor Chelyabinsk.
Here we think that SKA is going to win with difference against the team of Tractor but who knows. In the last game, SKA does not meet the expectations as they did not won. They did over 5.5 goals as they lost with 4-2 from Nizhny. Now we believe that we are going to see again over result here as we will go for the lower line of 4.5 goals.
The odds looks good for this market and what we have seen from the direct games and the past games of the teams this looks pretty good with big chances of happening. We honestly think this is golden mine here and we will strongly go for this option.
It was a good win last night as Toronto Maple Leafs totally demolished their opponents from Detroit Red Wings winning against them with 4-0. Tonight there are more amazing NHL games and we had a hard choice.
After all we selected some games and the best which we liked most was between Arizona Coyotes and Vancouver Canucks. Here we are going for Vancouver Canucks because we really think that they are the better team and they are going to win this game, even with difference. It will be interesting to see how these two teams are going to play here as Arizona Coyotes are playing good hockey recently.
After all, Canucks won their last game against Colorado Avalanche and now they will be looking to increase their winning streak. Arizona Coyotes won their last two home games and they have 2 wins in a row but now we believe that they will simply do not make it to third win.
The next NHL game which we are going to try to predict is between Detroit Red Wings and Toronto Maple Leafs. The game is between two good teams, which will definitely try to take this game but one of them will have the chance to do that.
We believe that Toronto Maple Leafs are one idea stronger than Detroit right now and we can see this from their momentum. Toronto Maple Leafs lost only one from their last 5 games, while Detroit Red Wings are in a streak of 4 losses in a row. Now they will do everything not to sign fifth loss but in our opinion, simply Toronto Maple Leafs are the better team and after the great win in the last round against Calgary Flames with 4-0, their new winning streak will begin.
It will be a tough one but Toronto must take the victory here just like they did in the last head to head game from the 1st of January this year. They won after overtime but here they will have chances to win even in the regular time. After all we do not wish to risk and we will go here with overtime included.
Another good winning pick last night as New York Rangers did amazing game against Los Angeles Kings winning in the regular time with 3-2. It was a poor game but in the end we saw amazing performance by the Rangers.
Tonight there are plenty of good games from the NHL program as one of the most interesting games is between New York Islanders and Columbus Blue Jackets. We think that here the Blue Jackets will totally outclass the Islanders, which team lost a very tough game against Philadelphia Flyers at home in the last round. They lost it after overtime but to be honest they could lose it even in the regular time.
It was a pure luck for them to reach the overtime. Columbus Blue Jackets played overtime as well as they did it against Ottawa Senators, away from home and took the revenge against this opponent beating him with 6-7. If Blue Jackets are playing with the same passion they did it against Senators, we are sure they will grab the win here.
The next and the first tip for the week from the NHL which we are going to follow today is going to be between New York Rangers and Los Angeles Kings. We already did some amazing games recently and we will hope to continue with the good performance.
From the game between New York Rangers and Los Angeles Kings we are expecting the home team from New York to take the game routinely. They are the better team and they are currently in a better shape. They won the last 2 games against good and quality teams, while Los Angeles Kings are in a bad serie of 3 games without a win.
New York are definitely the better team. They are staked at around 2.30 here but for us they are the complete favourites to win this game even in the regular time. After all we do not wish to take this risk and we will go for overtime included.
