Shitty ending to the week. OT losses. Shootout losses. Tough sledding for the Corner. But that's what Mondays are for. A fresh slate to start the week off right. We're looking for the Habs to bounce back after a shutout against what has been a pretty average Braden Holtby thus far. So we're taking Montreal in regulation only -0.5 -110.
I'm also gonna tails Murls with Tampa Bay in regulation. And also throwing half of that wager on TB -1.5 +150. To complete the evening, I'm expecting the Bs to avenge Saturday's loss. They played very well after a slow start. We're on Boston money line -140 so they just need to get the W.
Good luck to all.
Friend of Spittin' Chiclets, son of The Capital District, and 17-year pro Matt Murley will also be sharing his picks here as well.
Nashville Predators @ Tampa Bay Lightning (ML -175, O/U 6)
Murls Take: Tampa is a top team with star power and a goaltender that is a stud. This is a good spot for them to pick up some points against a Nashville team in need of more consistent goalie play. Tampa will roll their lines and get a PP goal or two. The main reason for this pick though is that the Super Bowl is in town and this whole week has to be about Tampa, so lets get it going in the Sunshine State with a W on the pucks before Brady takes over.
Murls Pick: Tampa 5-2
Murley's Best Bet: Tampa Bay three-way line -107 (TB must win in regulation)
Murley's Last Bet: Canadiens ML - Loss
