Yuck. Back in Slumpland. So CAVEAT EMPTOR on this blog.
Vegas and Minny are both playing their 3rd game in 4th nights. The Wild played in San Jose last night then had to fly to Vegas. Vegas slept in their own beds last night and should be pissy after losing at home to the Kings last night. We need a W tonight and we're hoping we get it from Vegas (talk about fucking gullible). So we're on VGK money line -150 to reboot the week.
Friend of Spittin' Chiclets, son of The Capital District, and 17-year pro Matt Murley will also be sharing his picks here as well.
Dallas Stars @ Nashville Predators (ML +105, o/u 5)
Murls Take: Thirsty Thursday boys! Pink Whitneys will be flowing as we get ready for a long weekend. Now to pay for those drinks and shenanigans, let us fill our pockets. Nashville has been humming since the rumors about dumping assets started. The team has rallied and are in the hunt. Josi is back playing up to his level and with his rugged good looks, he is due for a game. This one will be tight as they both are low-scoring but Dallas stinks without Radulov and Seguin. On the Preds and drink up.
Murls Pick: Predators 3, Stars 1
Murley's Best Bet: Preds ML +105
