Our NHL gambling bet of the night did not come through last night. Thanks a lot Montréal Canadiens.
Our NHL gambling bet of the night is for the Ottawa Senators (at home) to get the win against the visiting St. Louis Blues. It’s not every day that we put money on a home dog, put tonight is the night.
[-120] Record : 27-17-3, Road Record : 12-8-3, Form (Last 5) :
|STL 2-1 VGK||STL 3-6 STL||STL 3-4 WAS||STL 4-7 FLA||STL 2-1 TOR|
[+100] Record : 15-18-9, Home Record : 9-8-5, Form (Last 5) :
|OTT 6-5 SJS||BOS 7-1 CAR||OTT 6-3 TBL||OTT 2-8 CHI||OTT 4-3 TOR|
Even though the line for the Ottawa Senators opened at +100 they are in fact a dog. With the Blues being a -120 favorite, Vegas believes that St. Louis will be the favorite in this tilt. And just looking at records will confirm that decision. So we’re shorting it.
Thankfully the Ottawa line went up by the time we went to put money don’t on the game. By noon the line had moved from +100 to +120 for the Sens to win at home.
When we look at a game line we like to see in what shape the team is currently. Who cares if the Sens are, for examples sake 0-10 at home versus the Blues? (I don’t think that in anyway accurate, it’s just an example to highlight a point). It doesn’t matter.
Over their last five games the Sens are 4-1-0. That’s a grat record for a team that was a goal away from the Stanley Cup finals last season. The Sens should be better than what their record shows.
The Blues are still riding high in the Central division, but are absoltuely .500 right now with a 2-2-1 form. Don’t get me wrong, the Blues are dangerous even on the road, picking up three of a possible six points in their last three road games. But with the Sens starting to wake from their slumber, they should be able to take points at home from the Blues.
Bet: Ottawa Senators to win over the St. Louis Blues @ +120
Stats So Far (8/11) – 73%
We finally lost a bet. After a straight run of eight wins in a row we lost last night’s bet of the night of the Montréal Canadiens over the Boston Bruins. It started well with the Habs winning, but the Bruins slowly took over and won 4-1.
At least we can get that loss and know what it feels like, sometimes winning too much just gets to you. You start getting risky and careless with the success. So in a way, thank you for lossing Montréal.u
