Very hard for me to not bet Nashville/Chicago Over in the NHL, but a Nashville paper said the Preds have been working on defense all week and since these teams played an 8-6 game already this year against each other, I think this will go in the opposite direction, but why do I see a 3-3 game going into OT?
The bet is:
St. Louis/New York over 9, laying $114 to win $100
I will admit I am worried about the Cardinals scoring runs tonight. And maybe I am being too knee-jerkish to the 17 mph wind blowing out at Shea, because it's going to be chilly there which will offset that "factor". But I do not see Jeff Weaver survivng tonight. And yes, the Cards bullpen did excellent against a SD team that cannot hit, but last time I checked, the Mets have the best offense out of any teams left in the playoffs. So I see Weaver and the Cards pen getting knocked around tonight. So I am just hoping the Cards can put up 2 or 3 and I should be ok here. Glaveine hasn't allowed a run in his last 2 starts, so I expect some sort of return to his mean tonight.
Week 7: 3-0: +$300
Week 6: 5-1, +$750
Week 5: 4-4, +$681
Week 4: 3-6, +$110
Week 3: 3-3, -$575
Week 2: 5-3, +$306 (did win $509 on the Mansion free bet & hedge)
Week 1: 5-1, +$913
That Nashville Chicago over the total play is a favourite of mine. I hope the players weren't listening to the coach when he was trying to teach them how to play D.
