My picks went 1-1 from yesterday's dice rolls.
Season record 6-5, +1.40 units.
Let's look at who I like from tonight's NHL slate:
(all lines shown are from DraftKings Sportsbook)
New York Rangers ML (-114) Play 1.14 units to win 1 unit.
The Rangers are starting to roll, averaging 3.75 goals in their last four games. Their penalty killers have fended off all 10 power plays they've faced in the last two games. These two teams split the two matchups they've played against each other this year, but their goalies have been trending in two different directions. The Rangers' Igor Shesterkin has saved an impressive 94.5% of the shots he's seen in the last two games. The Islanders' Semyon Varlamov has given up 15 goals in his last 4 starts, going 1-2-1 during that span. The Rangers also have a more relaxed and professional attitude in the locker room since Tony DeAngelo was waived and departed the team after an altercation with a teammate.
Carolina/Columbus O 5.5 goals (-110) Play 1.1 units to win 1 unit.
This game is the second of a back-to-back for these teams that saw 11 goals scored yesterday. Couple that offensive outburst with the possibilty of both teams using 3rd-string goaltenders tonight due to consecutive games and injuries, and we are set up for another goalfest. Carolina covered this number all on their own yesterday as six different goal scorers lit the lamp. This was aided by an injury to ace Columbus defenseman Zach Werenski and an underwhelming performance from usually strong d-man Seth Jones. Carolina's defense has been mid-pack in the NHL all season, and I don't see that changing tonight.
Best of luck and enjoy the NHL schedule today.
