What's up, gang? Or at least the three of you who are still tuning in. Another 0-fer last week as the Blues lost a tight one (#PuckLineJesus at 19:59 for the 'nucks made is a two-goal game) and Columbus lost in OT). But Spin Zone: at least I reduced the number of plays and amount risked so the damage was minimal. I knew it was just RA's Annual NHL Wagering Slump® so I wasn't exactly giving my picks the hard sell (though the wager reduction was a big clue).
But the tide turned for me so I'm feeling more confident about my Colorado pick than I was 24 hours ago. We have Grubauer vs. Hutton in each team's crease. The -180 is a little pricier than I usually play in pucks but the Avs got spanked in Philly on Saturday and will bounce back against a Sabres team that is driving its fanbase crazier by the day as playoff hopes continue to dissipate.
So we on Avs -180 for 900 to make 500 and -1.5 +150 for 250 to make 375. And we're also gonna do a late add with Avs in regulation only -0.5 -115 for 575 to make 500.
Good luck to all.
