Thurs. puck picks, first plays of season

13-6 NHL 2014-15

0-0 NHL 2015-16

First write up plays of year, pretty much stuck to small plays, trying to avoid parlays as much as possible.

Isles -133 - Watched them versus Minnesota and they are turning it on for playoff push. Flames up and down all year. Have yet to figure them out.

Senators -105 - Not playing with as much magic as last year's miracle, but a solid 4 wins in a row and Phaneuf trade making this hard to resist at this price.

Was looking at Devils too, but still capping. BOL to the forum!

Wednesday puck pick

13-5 NHL YTD

Not posting enough picks due to time constraints. If you don't see me post, check out the lippsman page where I post. On a 5-1 run there.

Rangers -105 - Have to admit, am enjoying seeing the Caps doing well. But think the Rangers are too good for this not to go to 7. And think they tie it up tonight. Also would encourage under 5, and maybe OT again.

Wednesday play

12-5 NHL YTD

Very slack posting. My aim is to pick almost every game til the cup is won. Have had a feeling of a Rangers/Blackhawks final for the past few weeks now.

Bolts -185 - Was a bit taken back with the juice on this, almost was compelled to take the total instead, but feel it is a trap too, especially 5-2 last game.  But feel with the suspensions and injuries that the Bolts have a real good chance on home ice, unless Mrazek steals another one.

Thirsty puck Thursday

11-4 NHL YTD

Far too long, very rare play of late. Very wary of some spoiler plays that could go down tonight.

Sens-115- Hottest team in the league trying to achieve the impossible dream.

Sharks/Oil over 5.5 - Pretty much both sides playing for jobs and stats.

BOL to the forum!

Trap Tuesday hockey investments

10-4 NHL YTD 2-0 on past 2 parlay plays

Been a while. Love this forum! The best one on covers IMO.

One play tonight:

Sens/Wild under 5.5 - Became a believer of Hamburglar watching him sweep Cali. A believer of Dubnyk too. Hard to believe he was once a human shooting gallery with the oil.

BOL to the forum. Get Pens -135 for tomorrow while still at this number.

Tuesday puck investments.


Last time I posted, was on an Isles/Canes over that ended 4-1.  Just a few plays tonight. Taking a chance with a dog, and a total parlay, first of it's kind for me this year.

Habs +130 - I know it's hard to gauge what another team did last week versus Blues, I am thinking Pens. But Price is best goalie, and Max P is on fire. Only wish they had Pelley-Smith in the lineup versus Blues physicality.

Stars/Jets over 5.5 - Red Wings/Kings under 5.5 parlay - Only totals I have a feel for tonight.

Bol to the forum! Let's get some puck profits boyz!

Tuesday puck pick(s)


1-0 on parlay last night, but pretty sure parlay and prop record is under .500, just saying.

Dream night last night. Wish they would happen all the time. Leaning to dogs tonight, but not biting on Sharks, or gasp Sabres (yet). A side on the Caps and Pens is hard too. Only one total I like so far. After work, looking for one more side.

Isles/Canes over 5.5 - Khudobin and Johnson are supposed netminders. Both teams played last night, should be sloppy play and both goalies not in good recent form.

BOL to the forum!

Monday puck picks


Been too long. Betting less and watching more games with no money on it. Would recommend it when you start taking it too seriously. Two totals and a parlay.

Habs/Wings under 4.5 - a little less juice for this one. I figure if leafs/Habs ended 2-1. This game should be similar.

Oil/Jets over 5.5 - Jets have some new studs, and Oil young gun scorers have been hot.

parlay Avalanche/Jets - taking a page out of Mags44. Can't go on individual insane juice, so makes sense.

BOL to the forum!

Thursday pick


Very conservative card tonight, as I have a bit tied up with Super bowl. Looking to post more picks next month.

Red Wings/Bolts - Been impressed with Red Wings offence of late in particular Zetterberg. Bolts due to explode too. Hoping for a 4-3 kind of game.

If I see this hit by second or early third period will put a play on the Ducks.

End of year NYE eve puck picks.

5-2 YTD

Just and amazing sports week with Bowl games, world juniors and NHL. Really want to unplug my phone and just absorb it all! Looking at a few games, but refuse to put -215 on a home game. If you know my picks, always looking for value. Love the home dog angle this year, very lucrative.

Islanders -113 - This could very well go past regulation, like the Isles to edge in a close one.

Flyers - Have written this team off numerous times this year. They sucked versus Coyotes the other night, think they show up here.

Prop pick

Tyler Seguin to score

Home dog parlay

+188 Sabres-Panthers +136

World juniors

USA/Canada to go to OT/SO.

BOL puckheads, have the best and safe NYE to all!

Thursday picks


Been a while. Looking at a few right now. Blues as that much a dog is real enticing. Only two plays right now. BOL to the forum.

Leafs -136- Juice I hate, but Canes in disarray and Leafs filling the net.

Panthers-+123 Gerard Gallant doing wonder for the kitty cats. Philly strong at home, but think the Cats steal one.

Thursday pucks


Been fun having success in the early going. Really want to throw down on some dogs today like Isles, Ducks, and the defending champs kings getting +140! Just going with a total right now though.

Isles/Avs over 5.5 - See the offence continuing here. Looked at the TB/Philly total too but see it is at 6.

BOL to the forum!

Tuesday pucks


Good little start to the season. Just going with the one total so far. Something is begging me to pull trigger on Ducks and Sabres though at plus money.

Jets/Isles over 5.5 - Don't fix what isn't broken. Bring on the red light! Don't tell Roxanne!

BOL to the forum!

Going conservative today. Interested to see how Kobe and the Lakers respond after last years rock bottom. 

Rockets/Lakers over 206.

Pucks friday, first plays of the season,

0-0 YTD

Great to be back. Looking to make a lot of plays this year. Usually wrapped up with football betting this time of year, so don't post picks much. 2 road teams. In both cases going with the better offensive talent.

Dallas +106-Really high on Dallas this year, Devils still confound experts buy importing older players.

Bolts -111-Really confounding how they have done on this road trip. Jets might make a game on work ethic, but not enough finishing power.

BOL to the forum!

Friday mlb picks


Stopped posting for a bit after a recent slide. Baseball is a slippery slope right now, a lot of bottom feeder/cockroach teams taking out contenders. Imagine if the Cubs played all these young guns from the beginning of the season? You don't see Balty often as a +130 dog. Might bite. But two plays right now.

KC Royals +1.5 - Royals road record and Shields getting my attention.

Phillies/Nats run in first inning.-This Strasburg stat is one of the best kept secrets right now. No linesmaker adjustment either. Jerome Williams is a good bet, and Strasburg's struggles always in the early innings. It has to have hit over 50% for Strasburg this season.

Going to be posting some college picks and NFL very soon. I am on Northern Illiinois +7.5, and maybe USC ml.

Terrible weekend, with money wasted on the O's and the Angels/As pitching duel last not not materiaizing. New day and new week Loooking forwrd to CFB and llimiting baseball picks. Le's get it!

Nats -142 - Burnett fade. Nasty Nats don't quit.

MLB Sunday


Bad things with Baltimore yesterday. have rode them all year, but the Cubs of all teams making them look mediocre. Only on Marlins today. Also Angels/Oaktown under 7.5. BOL to the forum. Thoughts and prayers for SF quake victims!

Marlins -103

Angels/Oakland under 7.5.

MLB saturday pick


Just one early pick so far. Going with the O's which should be a good pitching matchup with Hendriks. BOL to the forum.

Baltimore -110

Wednesday MLB pick

2-1 mlb YTD

On a small 2-0 streak. Very tempted at going with Angels and Orioles again today, but wary of some dogs hitting today. Was looking at Pirates, but such a losing proposition. Yesterday's Rangers/Marlins over total was very juiced, but didn't hit. Usually the books put a failing total up a notch the next day, but it is staying the same at 7.5. Feels like a trap, but going to take the bait there will be 8+ runs in this game. Pray Martinez doesn't pitch a gem. More later. Looking at one more pick.

Rangers/Marlins over 7.5

Posted Tuesday, August 12, 2014 10:38 AM

Tuesday MLB


Not often when a total leaps out at me but like Jerome Williams and C.J. Wilson to give up some runs.

Philies/Angels over 8.5

Basaball brokers saturday

0-1 mlb YTD

Have barely post anything this season, got myself out of a financial hole so have some house money finally. Missed the day time plays, kicking myslef because Scherzer is back in form and dealing today. That was an easy under pending. Just going with one play and small parlay. BOL to the forum!

Nats -110 - Were embarrassed yesterday by that gas can Strasberg. I see this scrappy squad getting back into the win column.

Chisox +168 - Giants +132 parlay- See more value with the giants, but Chisox have too many good hitters to be neutralised like this.

Posted Tuesday, June 17, 2014 11:00 AM

With the Spurs winning, Bill Russell is smiling.

Team basketball is back! No big 3, big six, press NWO gang mentality. Drafted players, great passing. Complete anti-thesis to the ESPN highlight reel mentality. Bill Russell won almost twice as many titles as Jordan, but he wasn't a human highlight reel tv era player. Don't get me wrong I love Jordan like the rest, but we got to see all his games. How many of Russell's 20-30+ rebound games are out there?

Posted Thursday, May 01, 2014 10:20 AM

Hawdball May Day Thursday


First pick of the year. Waited a month specifically to see who is for real and who is not. Starting conservatively as I don't want to get into parlays  and that stuff til later.

Braves -128 - Baves getting hosed by Fish the past few days. Santana gets them on track, or at least makes this a game!

Looking at a Red Sox play with Peavy but haven't full pulled the trigger. Psyched to be back this baseball season!

Puck picks saturday

13-12 NHL, 2-0 AHL regular season

What's up puckheads? Been quite some time. Best forum and posters on covers by far. Think it's the canadian element, that lacks the sociopath keyboard warriors on the other forums. Although the soccer forum is class too. Anyways, no posted playoff picks til today, still reeling that the Pens couldn't hold down a 3-0 lead, would have been one heck of a boost to my bank if that came through. But that's hockey. No lead his is really safe with the exception of some Sharks games I have watched.

Detroit +202 - First pick is a straight up dog. Realise Bruins are a scary machine right now. And the Bear is peaking. I think Howard stands on his head today and they repeat the closeness of last game, but this time the Wings eke it out.

Colorado-No way they get just 12 shots on goal again. Nate Mac gets them back on the horse.
