Last night I was hoping to get off to a good start with the Panthers, but unfortunately they lost a tight battle with the Blue Jackets that I think really could have gone either way. It’s a good thing the Oilers are so horrible though because the Coyotes easily beat them, scoring 2 short handed goals on the same penalty to take the lead and never looking back.
After surveying the games tonight I’m actually only going to make one play this evening. I thought the odds were spot on for the majority of the games and I only feel confident in one underdog really having a good shot at winning their game.
NHL Season Record: 45-57 for -1.95 units.
Florida Panthers @ Detroit Red Wings
I’m going to go right back with the Panthers tonight. Yes, they’re playing the second of back to back games on the road, and yes the Red Wings are currently riding a 4 game winning streak, but I still think that this Panthers team has the ability to drive the play against the Wings and possible find the back of the net a few times. Add in the fact that Luongo will be back between the pipes for the Panthers tonight and I think we have a winning formula. The odds are great and I think this one is primed for an upset.
Play: Panthers 2.90 @ SportsInteraction.com
Sports Interaction is a great site for betting on the big underdogs in the NHL. They almost always give a little bit extra on their big dogs, which can allow you to really hit a big pay day when your underdog plays hit. Combine the fact that betting on underdogs is generally a smarter strategy than betting on favourites and SportsInteraction.com has to be an option for you when betting online.
