Our NHL Gambling bet of the night is back for the Monday edition. With only two games the pick for tonight is tough.
When there are fewer choices on the NHL Gambling menu it’s hard to find value. Especially when both matchups feature teams that compliment each other in terms of quality.
DAL EVEN @ -120 CAR Bet Of The Night
STL -110 @ -110 CGY
My money goes to the Dallas Star. At +100, or “EVEN” you’ll double your stake. A $10 bet will return $20. For the Dallas Stars who just score five goals and put up a shutout against the New York Islanders. That’s smart money.
We all thought the Dallas Stars were going to be a good team this year. With the acquisition of Ben Bishop, they addressed the one glaring need that the team needed. But for the last few weeks, Bishop hasn’t looked the part.
But against the Islanders, we saw the Bishop of old. A positionally sound shot blocker. Being 6’7″ is a giant advantage. Bishop doesn’t have to rely on athletics like counterpart Jonathan Quick. Getting his extra long legs to cover post to post and his massive frame to cover most of the net isn’t hard to do.
But Bishop struggled to adapt to the Stars system. But now. Now Bishop seems back. And against a Carolina team that ranks as one of the worst teams in the league in terms of shot generation Bishop should have a field day in Carolina.
