May 30, 2019

NHL EXPERT PICKS - FULL ANALYSIS ATTACHED

The Bruins won Game 1 which kick-starts our series bet in the right direction as 77.2% of teams who win Game 1 in finals history has gone on to lift Lord Stanley. The Blues just need to win at least 2 games and they possess fantastic value around the board tonight. We are going to diversify 2 units across some generous value on good probability outcomes.

 

ST. LOUIS BLUES MONEYLINE: 0.5 UNIT (+150)

ST. LOUIS BLUES 1ST PERIOD MONEYLINE: 0.5 UNIT (+120)

ST. LOUIS BLUES 3rd PERIOD MONEYLINE: 0.5 UNIT (+120)

OVER 5.5 GOALS: 0.5 UNIT (+125)

 

Game 1 was a case of two different games. If you were watching the 1st period you would have been impressed by the Blues explosiveness and ability to cause flustered Bruins turnovers. The 2nd period saw the home ice completely tilt with the Bruins dominating offensive zone possession, outshooting the Blues 18-3. The 3rd period saw another rebuttal by the Blues and fairly close back-and-forth period, but with the Bruins getting the lone eventual 5-on-5 decider. So, where does this leave us? Aside from a monstrous 2nd period of the Bruins, this series is exactly what we thought it was. Two extremely similar teams with extremely similar playing styles. This has the makings of a long series and the Blues have been the definition of a team that does not lay down on their season. From last place on January 1st through every round en route to the Stanley Cup Finals, the Blues been a great rebuttal team.
