NHL Scores last night had the unofficial Bet Of The Night pay out. It took a few days to get the 2017-18 NHL regular season figure out, but hopefully the winnings keep on coming.

Even though we recorded our podcast last night, I was avidly watching the NHL scores. I was constantly back and forth between the pod, an the New York Islanders game. Because that was the bet of the night.

My New York Islanders were on the road against cross river rivals the New York Rangers. And as is standard the road team was the dog. It makes sense. Both teams are seemingly equally bad so the edge in this game, as it does for most, went to the home team.

But I know that the New York Islanders don’t often lose against the Rangers. In their previous ten meetings the Rangers have only been able to claim three wins. So at +110 it was a sure bet.

The best return on the night was still the New Jersey Devils taking the Ottawa Senators 5-4 at +135. It’s crazy that the Devils are still the dog here. I know we think they’re supposed to be bad. But they haven’t been yet. We, as well as Vegas, is just waiting for that fall it seems.

NAS (-105) 1 @ 0 (-115) PHI
NYI (+110) 4 @ 3 (-140) NYR Bet Of The Night
TBL (+105) 2 @ 0 (-135) CBJ
NJD (+135) 5 @ 4 (-165) OTT
CAR (+110) 2 @ 1 (-140) CGY
 

Bet Of The Night

By no means are the Vancouver Canucks a good team, but they, like every other team has to win at some point. And a good time to do so is against an equally bad team tossing out their backup as their starter is day-to-day.

SJS -135 @ +115 NJD
VAN +140 @ -160 BUF Bet Of The Night
WAS -130 @ +110 DET
PIT -120 @ Even FLA
MIN -110 @ -110 WPG
MTL -110 @ -110 ANA

The best return on the night was still the New Jersey Devils taking the Ottawa Senators 5-4 at +135. It’s crazy that the Devils are still the dog here. I know we think they’re supposed to be bad. But they haven’t been yet. We, as well as Vegas, is just waiting for that fall it seems.

The Buffalo Sabres continue to look absolutely hapless outside of Jack Eichel, and now Robin Lehner is out with injury. Say what you will, but Lehner is at the very least an NHL average goalie. The same cannot be said for Chad Johnson.

So at +135 I absolutely fancy the Canucks to win one of their 30-35 wins this season tonight against the Sabres.
