Yesterday, we threw caution to the wind and took three unlikely-to-hit picks, each with the potential to pay out. We needed a change after having a bad week with favorites.
Last night we went 0-3, as the Rangers and Sabres couldn’t quite make it to the total goals line, while we doubled down on Detroit and lost, as the Winnipeg Jets got their act together, defeating the Red Wings, while the Pistons lost to the Houston Rockets in a battle of teams going nowhere.
Our bad week is almost over, with an 0-6 parlay record and a brutal 5-13 on individual picks. We’re closing out one of our worst weeks on record with this same-game parlay.
We’ll get our championship back at some point, and it’ll likely be thanks to our black and gold safety blanket.
Boston Bruins over Pittsburgh Penguins (-130)
Boston has won four of the last five games, is 8-2 straight-up (8-1-1) in the last ten, and has clinched almost everything they can.
Pittsburgh is fighting for its playoff lives and has won three of the last five games but is 4-6 straight up in the last ten.
The Bruins have won both previous meetings this season, winning 6-5 in overtime on November 1st and 2-1 on January 2nd.
Although the Bruins really don’t have much to play for, they are playing loose, having fun, and still winning. We’re taking the Bruins to win.
Pittsburgh Penguins +1.5 over Boston Bruins (-217)
Four of Boston’s last five wins were in one-goal games, while two of the Penguins’ last three losses have been by one goal.
The Bruins might not have much to play for, but the Penguins do and will keep this close, cover the spread, and maybe even push this game into overtime.
Boston Bruins versus Pittsburgh Penguins Under 6.5 (-120)
The under is 5-1 in the last six games in Pittsburgh and 10-3 in the last 13 overall.
Both The Penguins and Bruins are 4-6 over/under in the last ten.
We think this is a close 3-2 final and taking the under.
