POD- WSH/PHOE UNDER 5.5 -120
We have a battle in the desert tonight as the struggling caps offense starts off there western swing in phoenix tonight. caps are really struggling right now on offense averaging 2.0 goals per game in the last 10 games. they have scored 3 or less in 8 of 10 2 or less in 7 of 10 and have scored 1 or less in 4 of 10 and were shutout twice. they are struggling mightily on the power play going 2 for there last 26. there defense on the other hand has been top notch going under in 9 of the last 10 allowing 1.9 goals per game. they have allowed 3 or less in 9 of 10 2 or less in 7 of 10 and 1 or less in 4 of 10 games. they have been exceptional on the penalty kill killing off 27 of 28 power plays. yotes on the other hand after an over streak of 5 games have no gone under 4 games in a row and have allowed only 4 goals in those games. They have 2 shutouts in the last 4 games and have killed off 28 of 32 power plays. bryzgalov has been amazing the last 4 games saving 98 of a possible 102 shots. on the year he has 23 wins 5 shutouts and a 2.58 gaa while varmalov has a 2.22 gaa and 2 shutouts. it will be interesting to see if the caps can get out of there offense malaise on this road trip. they have scored 1 goal the last 2 games against two of the better defensive teams in the sharks and kings and face another tough defense tonight. until the caps score i will ride the under with them which has cashed 21-4 in the last 25 games and 21-5 in caps last 26 road games. 3-2 someone tonight.
dog play - stl ml +130
i think this is a really good spot to back the blues tonight. blues have lost 7 of 9 and are in desperate need of a win. nucks are starting a mini 3 game road trip and are banged up missing 3 key players tonight in hamhuis edler and just added to the injury report burrows. since the start of last season the teams have split six games with stl outscoring van 18-14. at this point in the season van is pretty much locked into at no worst the number 2 seed if not number 1 they are right now by 7 pts over det. blues meanwhile are trying to make 1 last ditch effort at the playoffs. they need wins. ill back more desperate team at home tonight against a foe they have always been competitive with.
cgy flames ml -115
avs have lost 9 of 10 and have been outscored 40-18 in the process. forsberg announced his retirement today and there battling numerous injuries. dont like the body language of the avs right now and like the flames to get the job done tonight.
OVER/UNDER WIN TOTALS I PLAYED
1. ATL FALCONS over 8.5 -125
love this falcon team and i believe there at least good for 6 wins at
home and if thats the case they only need 3 road wins. ryan is on the
cusp of being great, turner is a beast, roddy white is poised for
another great year, and gonzalez is maybe the best te in nfl history.
They have a young and aggressive defense and if they do there job 10-6
season will happen for sure.
2. NEW YORK GIANTS OVER 10 +110
Oddsmakers believe giants will either finish with 10 wins or less as
they have given us this generous number. If eli finds 2 revceivers that
breakout this season this team is a 12 win team for sure. They have the
most fearsome pass rush in football with osi, tuck, kiwi, canty, and
when he plays boley. There secondary is underrated and depth on d is
unmatched by any team in the league. ON Offense there o-line is strong
and cohesive, running backs versatile, and receivers poised to
breakout. i look for 11-5 with a chance at 12.
3. ARIZONA CARDS OVER 8.5 -120
people arent giving this team any credit at all. Warner had a big year
last year and has the best receiver in football in fitzgerald to go
along with 2 other very good ones in boldin and breaston. beanie wells
should compliment hightower on offense running the ball, and the oline
should be solid. They add mcfadden from pitt to compliment cromartie at
cb and dansby and dockett should have strong seasons again. i look for
no worse then 9-7 from this team this year.
4. sd over 9.5 -175
please with this number they have one of the top 3 teams in football
and will win 10 with ease provided everyone stays healthy. rivers is
ready to bust out. tomlinson is ready to prove naysayers wrong with
sproles right behind him. gates and vincent jacksongive rivers guys to
throw to and merriman is back to wreak havoc on d. chargers play in a
bad division and should win 5 minimum if not all 6 divisional games.
5. gbay over 8.5 -175
rodgers is a stud
and will lead gbay to a strong season. driver and jennings give him
great targets and grant is solid at rb. defense is a ball hawking
defense with solid talent all around including bj raji who they drafted
to play dt. i look for a minimum of 9-7 in this tough division from
this solid team.
