Their series of NHL articles have produced picks above expectation. In short, they make people money and provide the information for free. Here is what they say about the key game of the night that offers a puckline profit to boost your bankroll with.
Handicappers of hockey want the games where we can win big or go home. This is the key to success during the long NHL season if you bet favorites. Heavy chalk can consume the best of us but when pucklines come in, +100 or more is usually the value for the gravy train we hit. Welcome to another edition of Light the Lamp and tonight we look at a ML that is near -170 and a – 1 1/2 that comes in at a plump +170. So let us examine if this wager is in play as Vancouver visits Chicago tonight.
First off, one should examine the recent history of the rivalry to see if they games were nip and tuck or more of a blowout variety.
|November 21, 2015||Chicago||3||Vancouver||6||-1.5||5.0|
|April 2, 2015||Vancouver||1||Chicago||3||-1.5||5.5|
|February 11, 2015||Vancouver||5||Chicago||4||-1.5||5.0|
|November 23, 2014||Chicago||1||Vancouver||4||1.5||5.5|
|January 29, 2014||Chicago||5||Vancouver||2||1.5||5.5|
So we see from here that the five most recent results produced four games where the margin of victory is two goals or greater. Historically, these teams can produce the results where the puckline is profitable. Now let us see if Chicago is the play tonight ML and if it is then the puckline has value.
Kane is on such a consecutive point streak that offense should be flowing here. Even thought the Blackhawks are just 16-10-4, eleven of their wins have come at home. Finally, this rink is one of the toughest to play in. A tangible home ice advantage that should convert into a win here.
Vancouver’s season might be on the line with this six game road trip. An eastward swing with only one victory or less could bury them just when they got back to the .500 mark. This is not a good spot for the them as Chicago finally got some rest at home. Light the Lamp recommends the puckline on 12/13 for +170 on Chicago.
