The second round of the NHL playoffs continues this night as the St. Louis Blues battle it out with the Nashville Predators in game three of their best-of-seven series from Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tennessee. The Preds took game one of this series by a score of 4-3 and then the Blues were able to tie the series up with a 3-2 win in the second game.
It is going to be a titanic clash between the next two very strong teams in the NHL. Nashville Predators were very strong team during the regular season. They were solid, stable and they completely deserve to win the NHL. Unfortunately on the finals they will meet most likely the team of St. Louis Blues which are very serious and the chances there will be 50-50.
From this third opening game, we are expecting the Preds to try to dominate. They will be searching the win with difference, so they can demotivate their opponents for the fourth leg game from the playoffs. Both teams has the same day resting but this is definitely not an advantage here. The odds for a win in the regular time are not that bad, but we definitely expected to be little bit bigger. Anyway, we will go for the Predators here in the regular time.
First stage in their playoffs games between Ottawa Senators and New York Rangers, the home team did an amazing performance. They have very good goalkeeper who is in great shape at the moment. Against New York Rangers the goalkeeper of Ottawa safe lots of washers on the air.
Today there are one NHL playoffs game from the Hockey list. Yesterday, we did very unexpected loss for the hockey game between Regina Pats and Lethbridge Hurricanes. The game finished 5-3 and we were very inaccurate with under 5.5 goals.
Today the game we chose is between Ottawa Senators and New York Rangers. This is the second round between them in the playoffs. We are expecting interesting game because both teams are playing attractive hockey recently. Just like yesterday, we are going to go for under 4.5 goals. We need to be fast in order to catch those line and odds.
From head to head games, we can see that usually, both teams are scoring lots of goals in their games. But there are playoffs games, as they are will be very carefully. As we wrote, they are playing more closed and defensive hockey. This will definitely make a tough game without many goals.
We are coming here in the fifth game from playoffs on Canadian ice hockey. Regina Pats and Lethbridge Hurricanes after the last game finished 2-6 win for Regina Pats away from home in regular time. We predict in this game not to be over 5.5 goals.The game will be held on Brandt Centre in Regina city.
Today the game we chose is between Regina Pats and Lethbridge Hurricanes. We are not expecting interesting game because both teams are playing not that attractive hockey recently. The line is very big in our opinion. In some of the bookmakers the line is 6.5 goals We need to be fast in order to catch those line and odds.
From head to head games, we can see that usually, both teams are scoring lots of goals in their games. As we wrote, they are playing more closed and aggressive hockey and attractive and attacking. This will definitely make a tough game without many goals. The better market here is to try and search again for another under 5.5 goals in regular time.
Washington Capitals will meet Pittsburgh Penguins in game one of the Eastern Quarterfinals Semifinals tonight on the Verizon Center. The visitors ousted the Blue Jackets in five games in the first round. The Caps took out the Maple Leafs in six games in their first round matchup. This is sixteenth head to head game between those teams.
Both Pittsburgh and Washington won two games in this year’s season series. The Penguins beat the Capitals in six games in the second round last year. Both teams are capable to concede lots of goals. Last five head to head games between Washington Capitals and Pittsburgh Penguins, four of them meetings are finished at least seven goals.
We think the away team can play more aggressive and offensive, because they have seven days rest before to start the game. 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.
We are in a bad losing serie in the European ice hockey games . We really do not know why there are such surprises recently, but we believe that after the bad period there will be sun on our street. We are continuing following the NHL and our next pick will be for tonight.
The game which we liked is between the teams in the conference - St. Louis Blues and Nashville Predators. Here we are expecting no surprise this time as the team from St. Louis Blues must win this game as they are staked at around 2.45 odds to win in the regular time. Other interesting fact is both goaltenders are hot and that should make for a very tight game.There is no doubt that they are the better team and we would like to go for them. At their Scottrade Center, the hosts are superior in the direct clashes with three wins and just two defeats against Nashville Predators, but what’s bad is that in 1 of the 5 mutual games on Scottrade Center, there have been at least five goals netted. That is why we prefer to focus on other market.
But because we are having not that much belief in them, especially after the past few games we are going to make our pick more sure as we will make it to win after overtime. This should not be a risky bet but we are confident in winning it as it is high time, so we can stop the negative serie.
Usually, here we were about to write the prediction Hungary to win the game, but you saw that South Korea are pretty dangerous and no matter they are playing at home or away they can win against anyone. The game is from World Championships, Division I, Group A. This is it will be eighth head to head game between Hungary and South Korea.
The better result for us here will be not to be searching for the clear win or the win including overtime. It will be to search many goals, as we saw so far 5+ goals in their past seven games. The last home game which Hungary won against Ukraine was after regular time with astonishing (3-5 away from home). This makes us think that it is risky, very risky to search for the win in the regular time in 2.10 odds (after overtime the odds are 1.70 .. still not enough for us).
So we went to a different market. As we mentioned over 5.5 goals in the past seven games is more than enough for us to go and chase after this market. The odds are pretty good and if there is an overtime they will definitely make the over five goals. Actually if we refer to the last game we think we can say we can see even more goals.
Finally we stroke with a good NHL pick and on odds 3.00 we guessed the final result in the game between Toronto Maple Leafs and Washington Capitals. Tonight there is no one NHL games, that is why we focused on SHL playoffs games. HV 71 will host Brynas at Jonkoping in Kinnarps Arena.
Hv 71 and Brynas are a couple of great Sweden teams this season. However, it is a real treat to get to see them play against each other on the season. So it will be interesting to see which of these two teams is going to score more points. Home team had been playing well as they involved in effective and attractive games which are finished with lots of goals. Brynas have won three of the last five games.
Hv 71 have won ten of the last thirteen games, but they have managed to win four games in a row at home. Last five head to head games have also gone over five goals. So we expect another high scoring game between these two teams. The odds looks good for this market and what we have seen from the head to head 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.
After the great wins of New York Rangers last night, today we are going to change our strategy a bit and we are starting to make under goals predictions. The first game of this series is the game between Toronto Maple Leafs and Washington Capitals.
Last time both teams showed poor result and we are expecting to see the same game today. This year NHL playoffs are so attractive and effective, but we think both teams are tired and they will miss lots chances to score some goals in rivals net. We think that the Caps will take this game as well, but Toronto Maple Leafs are very dangerous and they should not be underestimated. They can make their game very tough.
Our prediction here will be under 4.5 goals as we want to risk with this bet , because both teams are exhausted.They do not have enough power to score lots goals. The odds are high, they are around 3.00 - 2.35. From the head to head games we can see they are not scoring lots of goals. However we prefer to risk with this bet.
Saturday afternoon NHL playoff game. Montreal Canadiens will visit New York Rangers at Madison Square Garden in New York. This is the game six of their best-of-seven series. The Rangers took a 3-2 lead in this series with a 3-2 victory at Montreal on Thursday evening.
Montreal Canadiens are second position in the Eastern Conference, but after falling in game five by a score of 3-2, they are now one loss away from home exiting the postseason. They have played well in this series, especially on defense and in the crease. Rangers and Canadiens have played some tight exciting games so far and this should be another one.
Here we are expecting no surprise this time as the team from New York must win this game as they are staked at around 1.95 odds to win with included overtime. There is no doubt that they are the better team and we would like to go for them. We can say that this is a derby game between two very tough teams and teams which are having huge ambitions on the title here. New York Rangers are the better team and we believe that they will do the impossible to take this game.
Finally we stroke with a good NHL pick and on odds 1.76 we guessed the final result in the game between Columbus Blue Jackets and Carolina Hurricanes. Tonight there are less NHL games as the only one which we really like to predict is eventually the less interesting games.
There are great battles like Ottawa Senators against Boston Bruins and Minnesota Wild against St. Louis Blues but all these games are very unpredictable and we hardly know or can predict which of the teams will win or how many goals will be scored in those games. Instead of that we found a good game which we think is pretty good for a pick though. It is the game between Washington Capitals and Toronto Maple Leafs as here we will be looking for an under/over goal markets.
In the past three games Toronto Maple Leafs are playing amazing hockey. In their last games they won with 3-4 and 4-3 (included overtime) against their rivals and after that they lose against the Caps with 4-5. The Caps are scoring lots of goals and it will be almost impossible not to score a goals. Our prediction for that fixture is over 5.5 goals included overtime. The odds are pretty good, that is why we will take it.
