TGIFF Picks Are In---RA's Gambling Corner Feat. Murls
The Corner had a sweet night last night as Murls hit his Penguins bet and I went 2-0 on flat plays (Florida and Calgary) and split an AR that turned a profit thanks to puck line odds. Let's keep it rolling.
I've had tonight's bet circled for a few days. Vegas just got swept by Minny in their two-game set. They haven't lost three straight all year and they're not about to. Marc-Andre Fleury, who has been lights-out all year, is back in the pipes so betting Vegas money line -110 is terrific value. So we are on the Vegas Golden Knights -110. We're also taking Vegas -1.5 +230 for half the amount of the money line bet.
Good luck to all.
Friend of Spittin' Chiclets, son of The Capital District, and 17-year pro Matt Murley will also be sharing his picks here as well.
Arizona Coyotes @ Minnesota Wild (ML -200, O/U 5)
Murls Take: There are two major reasons I love the Wild. One is that Biz had his birthday and that is over so now the Coyotes will lose. Two, the EBR crew loves the Russian gas and Kaprizov looks like he lives on the stuff. I have been winning in Russia and that translates to the NHL. It's Friday and this is how it works. Also, the Coyotes are not great on the road and coming off a lackluster performance, being outshot by the Avs by a lot and Raanta stood on his head. Minny PP even showed some positives from being the worst in the league. Lets get it!!
Murls Pick: Wild 3, Coyotes 1
Murley's Best Bet: Minny three-way -118 (must win in regulation) and a sidecar on the puck line +140.
*Sidecar is the shot you get when a beer is not enough.
