Last Week's Winnings (): 0-0, $0
2007-08 Season Winnings: 45-46, 49.5% (-$360)


Saturday, April 19, 2008


Montreal Canadiens (50-37) at Boston Bruins (43-44)
Line: Canadiens +155; Bruins -175.


In Carey Price I trust. I think people are overreacting to one game. Montreal will put the Bruins away.

Prediction: Canadiens 3, Bruins 1
Canadiens (4 Units)




Wednesday, April 16, 2008 (0-1, -$435)


Detroit Red Wings (56-29) at Nashville Predators (42-43)
Line: Red Wings -145; Predators +125.


The Red Wings somehow lost to the Predators after dominating them in Games 1 and 2. I don't see that happening again. Wings win this series in five.

Prediction: Red Wings 4, Predators 1
Red Wings -145 (3 Units) -- Incorrect; -$435






Tuesday, April 15, 2008 (1-0, +$400)


Montreal Canadiens (49-36) at Boston Bruins (42-43)
Line: Candiens -125; Bruins +105.


I really like the Canadiens to represent the Eastern Conference; Carey Price is a beast at goaltender. Coming off a loss, Montreal should be able to shut down Boston.

Prediction: Canadiens 3, Bruins 0
Canadiens -125 (4 Units) -- Correct; +$400






Monday, April 14, 2008 (0-1, -$420)


Detroit Red Wings (56-28) at Nashville Predators (41-43)
Line: Red Wings -140; Predators +120.


I am not a hockey expert by any means, but I do know domination when I see it. Nashville can't get past Detroit. This will be a sweep, or 4-1 at the very worst for the Red Wings.

Prediction: Red Wings 4, Predators 1
Red Wings -140 (3 Units) -- Incorrect; -$420




Monday, March 31, 2008 (0-1, -$240)


Atlanta Thrashers (32-47) at Tampa Bay Lightning (31-47)
Line: Thrashers +145; Lightning -165.


Doesn't it seem odd that the Lightning, despite having a worse record are -165? But that's not why I like them; I think they're playing really well right now, while Atlanta is going through the motions.

Prediction: Lightning 3, Thrashers 1
Lightning -165 (1.5 Units) -- Incorrect; -$240




Thursday, March 27, 2008 (0-1, -$200)


New Jersey Devils (42-34) at New York Rangers (39-37)
Line: Devils +125; Rangers -145.


Despite 65-percent action on the host, this line has dropped in Pinnacle from -135 to -126.

Prediction: Devils 2, Rangers 1
Devils +125 (2 Units) -- Incorrect; -$200




Saturday, March 15, 2008 (1-0, +$240)


New York Rangers (37-34) at Tampa Bay Lightning (28-34)
Line: Rangers -140; Lightning +120.


I'm on crack; I wrote down the wrong lines yesterday, so I'm not sure if it should count. I definitely wasn't going to lay -130 with Columbus. But I know I have this one right. Action on the Rangers, line falling in Tampa's favor.

Prediction: Lightning 3, Rangers 1
Lightning +120 (2 Units) -- Correct; +$240




Tuesday, March 11, 2008 (0-1, -$200)


San Jose Sharks (40-29) at Nashville Predators (35-35)
Line: Sharks -130; Predators +110.


Tons of action San Jose (about 75 percent), yet the line has dropped from -135 to -121 in Pinnacle.

Prediction: Predators 2, Sharks 1
Predators +110 (2 Units) -- Incorrect; -$200




Friday, March 7, 2008 (0-1, -$200)


San Jose Sharks (38-29) at Chicago Blackhawks (33-34)
Line: Sharks -135; Blackhawks +115.


You know how I like to do my hockey picks. There isn't an incredible amount of action on San Jose, but the line has dropped 15 points in Pinnacle. Something's up. And I know that the Sharks are on fire, but the Blackhawks aren't exactly struggling themselves.

Prediction: Blackhawks 3, Sharks 2
Blackhawks +115 (2 Units) -- Incorrect; -$200




Thursday, March 6, 2008 (1-0, +$260)


Toronto Maple Leafs (29-39) at Boston Bruins (35-31)
Line: Maple Leafs +130; Bruins -150.


Action on Boston, line dropping, yadda yadda.

Prediction: Maple Leafs 2, Bruins 1
Maple Leafs +130 (2 Units) -- Correct; +$260




Tuesday, March 4, 2008 (0-1, -$300)


Los Angeles Kings (26-41) at St. Louis Blues (28-37)
Line: Kings +130; Blues -150.


More of the same - action on the Blues - but the line has dropped in Pinnacle from -150 to -142.

Prediction: Kings 3, Blues 1
Kings +130 (3 Units) -- Incorrect; -$300




Monday, March 3, 2008 (0-1, -$100)


Ottawa Senators (37-29) at Anaheim Ducks (37-30)
Line: Senators +110; Ducks -130.


The Ducks are hot; the Senators are as cold as ice. Yet, Anaheim is just -130 tonight. And, with action on them (about 80 percent), the line has fallen from -135 to -129 at Pinnacle.

Prediction: Senators 4, Ducks 3
Senators +110 (1 Unit) -- Incorrect; -$100




Sunday, March 2, 2008 (0-1, -$200)


Columbus Blue Jackets (30-36) at Edmonton Oilers (30-35)
Line: Blue Jackets +100; Oilers -120.


I like Columbus tonight; with about 60 percent of the action on Edmonton, the line has dropped in Pinnacle from -125 to -106.

Prediction: Blue Jackets 3, Edmonton 2
Blue Jackets +100 (2 Units) -- Incorrect; -$200




Friday, Feb. 29, 2008 (1-0, +$345)


San Jose Sharks (34-29) at Detroit Red Wings (42-23)
Line: Sharks +115; Red Wings -135.


A cheap price for the Red Wings, so as you can imagine, lots of action on their side. Yet, this line has dropped from -135 to -129.

Prediction: Sharks 3, Red Wings 1
Sharks +115 (3 Units) -- Correct; +$345




Wednesday, Feb. 27, 2008 (0-1, -$300)


Minnesota Wild (34-29) at Tampa Bay Lightning (25-37)
Line: Wild -125; Lightning +105.


Not really sure why this price is so low. The Wild, a much better squad than the Lightning, are just -113 at Pinnacle after opening at -125. As you can imagine, there's a good amount of action on Minnesota.

Prediction: Lightning 3, Wild 1
Lightning +105 (3 Units) -- Incorrect; -$300




Sunday, Feb. 24, 2008 (0-1, -$130)


Colorado Avalanche (31-31) at Edmonton Oilers (27-35)
Line: Avalanche -130; Oilers +110.


I like how the spread is rising in Colorado's favor despite action on Edmonton.

Prediction: Avalanche 4, Oilers 2
Avalanche -130 (1 Unit) -- Incorrect; -$130




Thursday, Feb. 21, 2008 (1-0, +$200)


Detroit Red Wings (42-20) at Calgary Flames (31-30)
Line: Red Wings -120; Flames +100.


I think I've lost to the past million NHL games by one goal. Let's keep the streak going again tonight, as this line has dropped despite tons of action on Detroit. The Red Wings have struggled of late, so there's a good chance they lost to Calgary.

Prediction: Flames 3, Red Wings 2
Flames +100 (2 Units) -- Correct; +$200




Wednesday, Feb. 20, 2008 (0-1, -$200)


San Jose Sharks (31-28) at New Jersey Devils (34-26)
Line: Sharks +125; Devils -145.


About 70 percent of the action is on the Devils, yet this line has dropped from -145 to -138 in Pinnacle. Something's up.

Prediction: Sharks 3, Devils 2
Sharks +125 (2 Units) -- Incorrect; -$200




Tuesday, Feb. 19, 2008 (0-1, -$200)


Florida Panthers (27-34) at Pittsburgh Penguins (33-26)
Line: Panthers +125; Penguins -145.


Why is this line so low? The Penguins are so good. Tons of public money on them tonight, yet the line is moving Florida's direction.

Prediction: Panthers 4, Penguins 2
Panthers +125 (2 Units) -- Incorrect; -$200




Thursday, Feb. 14, 2008 (1-0, +$210)


Minnesota Wild (32-25) at Vancouver Canucks (28-29)
Line: Wild +105; Canucks -125.


The line moved down from -125 to -115 in Pinnacle, making it the place you can get the Canucks at the cheapest price.

Prediction: Wild 3, Canucks 2
Wild +105 (2 Units) -- Correct; +$210




Tuesday, Feb. 12, 2008 (0-1, -$200)


Anaheim Ducks (31-29) at Colorado Avalanche (30-26)
Line: Ducks -120; Avalanche +100.


Nine point line drop in Pinnacle (-120 to -111) on Anaheim despite equal action. I smell larceny or inside information.

Prediction: Avalanche 4, Ducks 2
Avalanche +100 (2 Units) -- Incorrect; -$200




Monday, Feb. 11, 2008 (0-1, -$100)


Phoenix Coyotes (28-28) at Dallas Stars (34-25)
Line: Coyotes +170; Stars -190.


There's just one game in the NHL tonight, so I'm going to take a shot with the Coyotes. There's a good amount of action on the Stars, yet the line has dropped from -195 to -182 in Pinnacle.

Prediction: Coyotes 2, Stars 1
Coyotes +170 (1 Units) -- Incorrect; -$100




Saturday, Feb. 9, 2008 (0-1, -$195)


Florida Panthers (25-31) at Boston Bruins (28-26)
Line: Panthers +110; Bruins -130.


Nearly three-quarters of the public's money is on Florida, yet the line has risen in Pinnacle from -125 to -132. The Bruins are more expensive there than anywhere else, and you can get Florida (+122) at a better price than any other sportsbook. Something's fishy.

Prediction: Bruins 3, Panthers 1
Bruins -130 (1.5 Units) -- Incorrect; -$195




Friday, Feb. 8, 2008 (0-1, -$210)


Anaheim Ducks (29-29) at New Jersey Devils (30-24)
Line: Ducks +125; Devils -145.


About four-fifths of the public money is on the Ducks, yet this line has moved a bit from -145 to -147 in Pinnacle.

Prediction: Devils 3, Ducks 0
Devils -145 (1.5 Units) -- Incorrect; -$210




Thursday, Feb. 7, 2008 (1-0, +$160)


Toronto Maple Leafs (21-34) at Montreal Canadiens (29-24)
Line: Maple Leafs +160; Canadiens -180.


I didn't like much in the NHL tonight, except for Toronto, that is. Despite tons of action on Montreal, a squad coming off a victory against Ottawa, the line has dropped in Pinnacle from -191 to -174. It's also cheaper there than anywhere else.

Prediction: Maple Leafs 2, Canadiens 1
Maple Leafs +160 (1 Unit) -- Correct; +$160




Wednesday, Feb. 6, 2008 (1-0, +$200)


New Jersey Devils (30-23) at Buffalo Sabres (24-28)
Line: Devils -115; Sabres -105.


The Devils are being bet at about a 70-percent clip today, which makes me wonder why the line has dropped in Pinnacle from -120 to -110.

Prediction: Sabres 3, Devils 2
Sabres -105 (2 Units) -- Correct; +$200




Tuesday, Feb. 5, 2008 (1-0, +$250)


Florida Panthers (24-30) at Toronto Maple Leafs (21-33)
Line: Panthers +125; Maple Leafs -145.


With about three-quarters of the public's money on Toronto, this line has dropped in Pinnacle from -150 to -140. Florida may not deserve an NHL team, but I'm betting on them tonight.

Prediction: Panthers 3, Maple Leafs 2
Panthers +125 (2 Units) -- Correct; +$250




Monday, Feb. 4, 2008 (0-1, -$135)


Calgary Flames (26-26) at Edmonton Oilers (23-31)
Line: Flames -135; Oilers +115.


There's equal action on both sides, yet Pinnacle has moved the line up from -125 to -130, indicating they don't want bettors on Calgary.

Prediction: Flames 3, Oilers 1
Flames -135 (1 Unit) -- Incorrect; -$135




Saturday, Feb. 2, 2008 (1-0, +$100)


Carolina Hurricanes (26-28) at Pittsburgh Penguins (28-23)
Line: Hurricanes +100; Penguins -120.


Just a small play on Pittsburgh, as the line has risen in Pinnacle from -110 to -118 despite there being 60-percent action on the Hurricanes.

Prediction: Penguins 4, Hurricanes 2
Penguins -120 (1 Unit) -- Correct; +$100




Friday, Feb. 1, 2008 (1-0, +$250)


Buffalo Sabres (23-27) at Atlanta Thrashers (24-29)
Line: Sabres -145; Thrashers +125.


I find it odd that despite there being equal action on this contest, Pinnacle dropped the line from -155 to -135, apparently hoping for bettors to pound Buffalo at a cheap price. Looks like the Thrashers are the right side.

Prediction: Thrashers 2, Sabres 1
Thrashers +125 (2 Units) -- Correct; +$250
