Anaheim Ducks vs. Vancouver Canucks Over-Under Betting Odds & Pick: March 5th 2017

Anaheim Ducks vs. Vancouver Canucks
NHL Betting Pick: Over 5.5 goals -110 odds (March 5th 2017)

This is 1 of 3 hockey picks for Scott “The Bulldog” Rickenbach on Sunday. This one is a free pick but the other two are both star rated picks. As expected, The Bulldog got back on track on the ice with a 3-0 SWEEP Saturday! Rickenbach is now 62-42, +$26,240 his L104 in the NHL! In addition to 3 hockey picks he also has 4 star rated picks in hoops (2 NBA and 2 CBB) Sunday! He is on a 27-12 all picks run with basketball selections the L7 days! ON FIRE on the hardwood and you don’t want to miss any of his Sunday action as his premium picks run in all sports is currently 157-107 and +$48,590 which is why he’s ranked as the #1 OVERALL CAPPER in 2017 on multiple networks!

Rickenbach Free Pick NHL Sunday OVER 5.5 goals (+130) in Anaheim Ducks vs Vancouver Canucks @ 8:05 ET – The Canucks are off of a big 4-3 win over the Kings in LA last night and Vancouver has now given up 3 goals or more in 7 of its last 8 games. The over is 6-2 in Canucks Sunday games this season. Anaheim has averaged 3.2 goals per game in its last 6 games against the Canucks and the Ducks are seeking revenge for a 3-2 loss at Vancouver in late December. Anaheim has scored 5 goals in each of its last two home games and getting points in the standings is critical for the Ducks right now. They’ll continue to put plenty of pucks on net here but are still without #1 goalie John Gibson. With Jonathan Bernier getting the start (no unders and 11 goals allowed in his last 4 starts), I’ll ride the over in this one as we look to cash the big plus money on that side of this total! Free Pick on OVER 5.5 goals (+130) in Anaheim Sunday evening. Best of luck, Scott “The Bulldog” Rickenbach

Detroit Red Wings vs. Edmonton Oilers Betting Odds & Pick: March 4th 2017

Detroit Red Wings vs. Edmonton Oilers
NBA Betting Pick: Oilers -206 odds (March 4th 2017)

Tough spot for the Red Wings here as they play on no rest following a 3-2 overtime loss in Calgary last night. Detroit tied that game up with less than a second remaining only to fall minutes later, and really left it all on the ice, outshooting Calgary by a 37-31 margin.

Of course, it’s been a long season for the Wings, and they were sellers at the trade deadline – an odd position for GM Ken Holland to be in. They check in with just 13 wins in 31 road games this season and things won’t get any easier in Edmonton where the Oilers will be up for this one following a somewhat disappointing 3-3 road trip.

While I often don’t like backing a team in their first game back home following a long road trip, especially when there’s a layoff to consider (the Oilers haven’t played since Tuesday), here I’m willing to make an exception. The Wings have already picked up three of a possible four points in the first two games of their road trip, and will head back east following this one. I simply see this as a flat spot for them as they continue to play out the string. Take Edmonton (8*).

Sean is coming off another 2-0 NHL SWEEP last night, now riding a STRONG 40-26 NHL run, including a 16-6 sides tear! He’s releasing not one, but TWO BIG TICKETS on Saturday night; don’t even consider missing out!

Edmonton vs. Nashville Betting Odds & Pick from Scott Rickenbach: February 26th 2017

Edmonton Oilers vs. Nashville Predators
NHL Betting Pick: Oilers +115 odds (February 26th 2017)

Free Pick – Rickenbach NHL Game #55 Sunday – Edmonton Oilers Money Line (+) @ Nashville Predators @ 5:05 ET – Nice set up here. The Oilers are off of a loss to Washington but haven’t lost consecutive games since the beginning of the month and Edmonton was off last night. The Predators are off of a big win versus Washington and that victory came yesterday so this is a tough back to back spot for Nashville.

The Preds have won 2 straight games but, prior to this, they had lost 7 of their last 12 games. Nashville hasn’t managed 3 straight wins in the past 4 weeks! This spot will certainly test the Predators as they have lost 21 of 33 when playing the 2nd game of a back to back. Also, the Preds have lost 17 of 23 this season when they are off of a game where they scored 4 goals or more. The Oilers have not had success in recent seasons in games against Nashville and they are hungry and will make the most of this opportunity Sunday as they catch the Predators dropping the puck on this game less than 24 hours after yesterday’s game ended! Free Pick on EDMONTON Sunday. Best of luck, Scott “The Bulldog” Rickenbach

Chicago Blackhawks vs. Minnesota Wild NHL Betting Odds & Pick: February 21st 2017

Chicago Blackhawks vs. Minnesota Wild
NHL Betting Pick: Wild -135 odds (February 21st 2017)

The Minnesota Wild will host the Chicago Blackhaws in a Central Division showdown Tuesday night. The Wild are sitting top of the division, seven points ahead of the Hawks in second, and they’re 11-2 in their last 13 vs. Central Division foes. They had won six straight head-to-head meetings with the Blackhawks prior to a 4-3 OT setback here at Xcel Energy Center on Feb. 8, and I like them to reestablish their dominance in the series tonight.

The Blackhawks have played seven of their last eight games on the road, and I think they’ll come out flat here as they play their third game in four nights. The Wild meanwhile are playing on two days rest (they’re 4-0 in their last four games playing on 2 days rest) and my money is on the home team in this contest.

Mike Lundin won with his top rated CBB play yesterday to improve to 32-16 (67%) with his top rated selections across all sports since January 15. If you’re looking to pick up the BEST NHL PLAY FOR TUESDAY, look no further than Mike’s Top Rated 10* NHL *HOT $HOT*!

Flyers vs. Oilers NHL Over-Under Pick from Alex Smart: February 16th 2017

Philadelphia Flyers vs. Edmonton Oilers
NHL Betting Pick: Under 5.5 goals (February 16th 2017)

The Flyers go  into Edmonton having scored just four goals in their last five games and in their L/11 games have potted more than two goals just twice. Meanwhile, the host Oilers despite of a 5 goal output last time out vs lowly Arizona, had scored just 6 goals in their previous 5 games. With both teams struggling to bury the biscuit with consistency, and both playing their 3rd  tilt in in 5 nights, and now on tired legs a lower scoring low energy game becomes a high possibility. I know these teams took part in a high scoring affair, on Dec 8 , as Philly took a 6-5 decision, but this time around, Im betting things will be different.

EDMONTON is 8-1 UNDER  in home games revenging a loss where opponent scored 5 or more goals with a combined average of 4.8 ppg going on the scoreboard. PHILADELPHIA is 6-0 UNDER  in February games this season with a combined average of 3 ppg going on the scoreboard.PHILADELPHIA is 6-0 UNDER against good offensive teams – 29 or more shots on goal, convert 17% or better of their  pp opportunities- 2nd half of the season this season.

Columbus vs. Detroit NHL Betting Odds & Pick from Alex Smart: February 7th 2017

Columbus Blue Jackets vs. Detroit Red Wings
NHL Betting Pick: Blue Jackets -117 odds (February 7th 2017)

Columbus has been cratering of late, thanks to some crap goaltending and ugly/lazy defense, and  off an embarrassing 5-1 loss vs NJ Devils last time out, as they came out in that above mentioned game asleep at the proverbial wheel. Truth is they did not pace themselves earlier this season, when they went on a 16 game winning streak, and finally hit a yield sign, as their energy waned.  Now I expect John Tortorella Jackets  will be hell bent on bouncing back, and getting some of their  lost respect for themselves back vs a inconsistent Red Wings side.

The Blue Jackets are 9-1 in their last 10 games playing on 2 days rest and are 10-4 in their last 14 after scoring 2 goals or less in their previous game.Blue Jackets are 6-2 in their last 8 road games vs. a team with a losing home record.Red Wings are 7-16 in their last 23 home games and are 2-8 in their last 10 vs. a team with a winning % above .600.Red Wings are 0-6 in their last 6 when their opponent allows 5 goals or more in their previous game.Blue Jackets are 10-4 in the last 14 meetings.
