Another Great Week

After another great week, we find ourselves now at 10-3-1 on our POD record. We’re hot, and we’re just getting started heading into the conference tournaments and down the stretch in the NHL. Not a great skate tonight, but there is a game I like, and I will be on. Let’s get into it. 

Pick Of The Day: Record (10-3-1)

Stars/Canucks over 6 (-128) 

After an 11-game streak of Canucks games going over 6.5 goals, we’ve seen that turn back down with their last 2 going under. Canucks have played solid defense recently, but numbers say they will not be able to sustain that at all. 

Every stat would have this game going under. Which is why I think this game goes over tonight. The Stars have a solid D and an average offense, but they beat up on bad defense at home. I think the offense gets going tonight, and the Stars put in at least 4. 

I’m expecting the Canucks to have to play from behind early and often, which will lead them to some opportunities and some fast breaks on which they’ll get a couple of goals, or they’ll allow some great chances for the Stars.

Going against the grain tonight. It’s tough when you have an over team like the Canucks against a slow defensive team like the Stars. I think the Stars get rolling tonight, and this over hits. 

Honorable Mentions: Record (10-4)

OKST ML (-106)

At home taking on conference rival Baylor. The Cowboys have lost 4 games in a row, and Baylor is coming in ranked 9th in the country off a big win against Texas at home. They find themselves on the road tonight. With the line basically at a pick ’em, I’m betting the line, and the line tells me that the Cowboys are winning this game tonight.
