Bruins vs. Senators Odds: Schule betting Ottawa +107 over Boston on April 21st 2017

Boston Bruins vs. Ottawa Senators
NHL Betting Pick: Ottawa +107 odds (April 21st 2017)

The Sens lost Game 1 of this series at home by a score of 2-1, but have stormed back to win three straight. They have a chance to eliminate the Bruins at home tonight, and the bookmakers have Boston listed as a slight favorite. Ottawa has some big advantages in this series, starting with the goaltending. Craig Anderson has out-played Tukka Rask, which isn’t that surprising considering Rask nearly lost his job as Boston’s starter halfway through this season.

Perhaps the even bigger advantage for the Sens is on the blue line, with Erik Karlsson proving he’s still one of the league’s best. Karlsson has five points so far in four games. The Bruins decimated defense is missing key players Torey Krug, Adam McQuaid and Brandon Carlo. The Bruins have lost six of their last seven at Ottawa, and 13 of their last 16 overall versus the Sens.

Pittsburgh Penguins vs. Columbus Blue Jackets NHL Betting Pick from Alex Smart: April 18th 2017

Pittsburgh Penguins vs. Columbus Blue Jackets
NHL Betting Pick: Penguins -118 odds (April 18th 2017)

The defending Stanley Cup Champion Pittsburgh Penguins have shown their superiority and clutch mind set vs Columbus in this series as is evident by a 3-0 series lead. Some are saying it has been a  competitive battle, but the difference maker has been at key junctures of each game, showing us the importance of the  Pens play off experience  .  Meanwhile, the Jackets despite of a great season  have lost  9 of their L/10 overall, and  are consistently finding new ways to lose. With Sid Crosby and company with a death grip firmly in place , I am betting on them   to gear up and tighten the noose mercilessly , and deliver the the final blow tonight for a sweep.

Penguins are 6-0 in their last 6 Conference Quarterfinals games.Blue Jackets are 0-7 in their last 7 vs. Metropolitan.Blue Jackets are 0-7 in their last 7 games playing on 1 days rest.Penguins are 4-0 in the last 4 meetings.PITTSBURGH is 8-1 ATS  lL9 versus very good teams – outscoring their opponents by 0.5+ goals/Game .
Play on the Pittsburgh Penguins to win on the money-line 1 unit reg selection

San Jose Sharks vs. Edmonton Oilers NHL Over-Under Prediction: April 12th 2017

San Jose Sharks vs. Edmonton Oilers
NHL Betting Prediction: Over 5 goals -110 odds (April 12th 2017)

The Edmonton Oilers finished second in the Pacific Division, just four points ahead of San Jose. They will host the Sharks in the first round of the playoffs, and Game 1 goes Wednesday night at Rexall Place. Both these teams play an exciting brand of hockey, and I expect to see plenty of scoring in the series opener. The over was 3-0-2 in five meetings in the season series, and the two teams combined to score 13 goals in two games in Edmonton. The Oilers captain Connor McDavid led the NHL in scoring with 100 points this season, and the Sharks Brett Burns was the league’s top scoring defenseman. The Sharks went all the way to the Stanley Cup Finals last season, and they opened the post-season with a 4-3 win over the Kings. I expect a similar score here in Game 1 in Edmonton.

Minnesota vs. Detroit NHL Over-Under Betting Odds & Pick: March 26th 2017

Minnesota Wild vs. Detroit Red Wings
NHL Over-Under Pick: Over 5.5 goals -110 odds (March 26th 2017)

Free Pick – Rickenbach NHL Sunday OVER 5.5 goals (+118) in Detroit Red Wings vs Minnesota Wild @ 12:35 ET – The Red Wings have stayed under in 3 straight games. This season that has happened 3 times so far and there has not been an under in the next game any of the 3 such occurrences. Also, when off of a game where they’ve been held to 1 goal or less, the Red Wings have stayed under the total in their next game just 8 times in 24 such occurrences.

The Wild are also in bounce back mode here as they’re off of a disappointing 4-2 loss versus Vancouver yesterday. Minnesota is a stellar 9-2-1 to the over this season when they are in the 2nd game of a back to back spot. Also, when off of a game where they allowed 4 goals or more, Minny has had just 6 unders in 21 games this season! Look for the Wild to take advantage of facing a struggling foe here and the result should be plenty of goals as the over is 13-6 their last 19 games against teams with a losing record. Free Pick on OVER the total in Detroit EARLY Sunday

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!
