YTD (13-13-2)

Solid night last night, a nice winner and a push on the shots prop. Not bad for a night with only 3 games. We get a massive 12 game slate tonight with a few key match ups. I loved the Stars tonight until it was announced Oettinger wouldn’t be playing. Boston and New York should each pull out the wins but the payouts aren’t worth the sweat. Minnesota and Vancouver are each looking for their first win in what should be a decently high scoring game. There are plenty of good games to choose from but a few in particular caught my interest.

 

Nashville Predators (-145) @ Columbus Blue Jackets (+125)

The Preds have yet to win a game since returning from Prague, they head into Columbus looking to correct that. They’re the much better team in this match up, if Saros plays as expected then they should have no problem handing the Jackets their 4th loss. While Columbus just got their first win, they had a very tough first few games, I like Nash tonight only if Saros is playing. Lankinen has played only 1 game against the Sharks in Europe so I question whether he’s up to the task tonight. The Preds offense has struggled but CLS isn’t known for its defense, giving them a great chance at a bounce back game.

Washington Capitals (-110) @ Ottawa Senators (-110)

Washington is beat up heading into this match up with Connor Brown being the latest injury on the list. Being so thin could make this match up against the Sens a tough one. Ottawa is coming an absolute score fest where they put up 7 goals against the Bruins. The top 6 in Ottawa have had a very good start to the season, being on home ice I expect that to continue. Neither team has been great in the goaltending department but given the injuries to key players on Washington I expect the Sens to be the better team tonight.

Carolina Hurricanes (-110) @ Edmonton Oilers (-110)

The Oilers host the Hurricanes tonight in what has historically been a tough matchup for them. The Oilers haven’t beaten the Canes on home ice since 2016. Their defense first play style makes it very difficult for McDavid to play the way he wants to. Carolina being even better this year isn’t going to make that any easier. Edmonton still has goaltending issues while the Hurricanes have only 1 goal a game, much different than the minimum of 3 that the Oilers have allowed. This should be a very good game between two high level competitors, but I think the Canes take this one.
