8-8-1 in Hockey up 5.79 units
Finland – Sm Liiga
Pelicans pk for 3 units at +104. Neither one of these teams have any players competing in the Pyeongchang Olympics. Hameenlinna has only scored 9 goals in the last 5 games to go along with one of the worst home records in the league. The Pelicans have actually been pretty good on the road. Pelicans are in better form, although both are on losing streaks. I’m taking the value play here.
SaiPa Vaasan Sport over 5 for 2 units at -117. Vaasan Sport have been letting in goals on goals and SaiPa should be able to put 4 goals up on their own.
SaiPa pk for 2 units at -180. Once again, neither one of these have important players competing in the Olympics. This is a Vaasan Sport fade. Vaasan has been in some of the worst form in the league and this high juice is indicative of that. SaiPa have won their last 3 games as well.
Lukko pk for 1 unit at +108. Lukko has lost their last 3 home games, but won their last game 4-1 against the Pelicans. These teams are in similar form, Jyvaskyla has the better offense, but Lukko has the better defense. I could see this game going to overtime, but Jyvaskyla did give up 6 goals their last time out against a team of lesser quality than Lukko.
NHL – OT included
Carolina Hurricanes ML for 1 unit at -165. Islanders fade. Islanders are on the second night of a back 2 back and have to travel south to North Carolina overnight. Cam Ward should be back in goal for the Hurricanes as they gave up 5 goals without him in their last game. Ward is 5-1-1 in his last seven games played. Cam is 12 years removed from winning the Stanley Cup with the Canes as a rookie, but he is still the best goalie they have in my opinion.
