Tuesday NHL Plays: We're really nervous about today's offering. Our group of cappers likes 9 plays. This is not our style to release this many plays and I hope this doesn't happen again anytime soon. We risk taking a major hit to our bankrolls by having so much loot in action. On the flip side, we've been assured that these are all solid plays and in their defense, each of the guys in our group has hit no less than 57% on their totals plays this season, so we're going to roll with it. These plays better go 5-4 or better or we're going to look like a bunch of tools! Good luck!

Stanley Cup Game 6: The Devils definitely have the momentum, but we don't feel confident enough to back them on the road. We're going to take a pass on tonight's game. - 6/11

Stanley Cup Game 5: Passed. - 6/9

Stanley Cup Game 4 Lean: The Kings have been dominant throughout the entire Stanley Cup playoffs and contrary to popular belief the team on the verge of elimination usually folds in this situation. That being said we're still not comfortable laying -180 on the Kings. We do think that they'll probably win tonight, but the line goes against our betting philosophy of never laying more than -125. - 6/6

Stanley Cup Game 3 Lean: No value in tonight's game, but if you twisted our arm we'd side with the Kings -155 - 6/4

Stanley Cup Game 2 Total: Kings/Devils Over 4.5 -110 - 6/2

Stanley Cup Picks: No games scheduled until Saturday June 2nd.

Stanley Cup Game 1 Wager: Kings/Devils Under 4.5 +110 - 5/30

Surprisingly the sportsbooks have the Los Angeles Kings as a large -175 favorite to win the 2012 Stanley Cup. While we do agree that the Kings should be the bettng odds favorite, we figured to see a line closer to -125. There definitely is some value on the Devils at +155.

No games scheduled until Wednesday May 30th.

Friday Best Bet: Nashville -0.5 +102 (60 Minutes)

Thursday Play: New Jersey -110

We really think that Nashville won't be effected by the team suspensions of forwards Alexander Radulov and Andrei Kostitsyn and will bounce back big time tonight. We're even going to make a series wager on Nashville +240.

Wednesday Bounce Back: Nashville -0.5 +110 (60 Minutes) 5/2

Sunday NHL Selection: Pittsburgh -120 - 4/22

Saturday Puck Pick : Washington +167 - 4/21

Friday NHL Parlay : Penguins -185 and Rangers -175 (Sat) - 4/20

We rarely play NHL parlays, but we feel today's hockey card with Pittsburgh being a prohibitive -185 favorite and tomorrow with New York being -175 that a 1 unit wager to win 1.42 is justified.
