We’ve got a betting play combined with a great promotion from PointsBet on the Flyers at Rangers midday game. 

The NY Rangers lost 5-2 in their last match against Philadelphia a couple of days ago. The Rangers were not even close and the Flyers win was well deserved. However, the Rangers have been on a winning streak before losing to the flyers, five straight match wins showing offensive skills and scoring lots of goals. 

  • Sjestiorkin and Haley are injured and with Kreider likely to be out as well. 


The Flyers have been a very solid team at home (23/32) but have comes into this matchup with a pretty weak on the road record (14/32). They have a five straight win record (including the Friday match win over the Ranger) – Voracek was the MPV in that game with a total of four points.  

  • Lindblom and Morin are ruled out for the Flyers. 

Overall both these teams have been scoring a lot of goals lately. Looking at historical data the under should be the best pick but based on how these teams have played in their last couple of matches everything leans towards lots of goals being scored and we go for the over 6

Chicago Blackhawks at Tampa Bay Lightning

Thurs, Feb 27 –  7:00 PM ET

Money Line Play @ Unibet

Tampa Bay -250

Place your bet at Unibet

Tampa Bay is hosting Chicago in the game for tonight’s money line pick.

Tampa Bay enters this matchup with three straight losses. They have had an intense game schedule with tough matches against Toronto, Arizona, Vegas, Colorado, and Philadelphia so it comes to no surprise that the results have been weaker than what would normally be expected from the strong Florida team.

Prior to loosing against Toronto, Arizona, and Vegas, Tampa had a fantastic run of 11!!! straight wins.

Chicago has lost 8 out of their last 10 games and I believe another loss will come tonight against a Tampa Bay with a hunger to start winning matches again and to break the negative trend.

Tampa holds an 8 straight win (home and away) record against Chicago and is a much stronger team than the Blackhawks. Chicago has no weapons to stop Tampa Bay tonight.

Ottawa Senators at Columbus Blue Jackets

Monday, Feb 24 –  7:00 PM ET

Money Line Play @ Unibet

Columbus Blue Jackets -230

Place your bet at Unibet

Key points why we think this is a good play:

  • Columbus has won four out of four last meetings with Ottawa in the Nationwide Arena.
  • Ottawa has just won one of its last nine away games.
  • Ottawa has won only six of its away games this season with 17 losses.
  • Columbus has won six of its last ten home games.

The Blue Jackets need to turn their negative trend of 0-3-5 in their last eight games. A penalty shootout loss 4-3 against Nashville in their Sunday game in Bridgestone arena sealed the no win after full time in the last 8 games but we are not too worried about this. Tonight is the perfect time to turn the negative trend as they enter the matchup against Ottawa with a lot of confidence based on their historic results plus a great final period against Nashville.

Columbus needs a two-pointer tonight to get back into the playoff teams. Eight games without victory is frustrating for any team, but they have scored points in five of them as well as 29 of the last 34 games. This is also done with a lot of players on the injury list. I think Columbus will take their first win in a while against Ottawa that have been struggling on the road the whole season.

Ottawa has lost their last 2 games and comes from a 3-0 loss against the Canadiens, Carey Price blocked all 30 shots. Before loosing to Montreal they fell 5-1 against Winnipeg Jets. Ottawa is a not a team in good shape right now and Columbus has a golden opportunity to put an end to a eight games no win streak.

Play Columbus on the moneyline.
