What a monster night to start the week last night. 5-0 including a puck line action reverse to load up the bank. In Vancouver tonight, the Leafs are taking on the Canucks once again and are a sizable favorite once again (12-15 or -300). Toronto is starting David Rittich and the Canucks are obviously going to keep riding Braden Holtby. The line is way too big. Sunday's win seemed like a galvanizing moment for the Canucks and should be the start of a playoff push. They also have much more to play for right now. If Holtby plays at the same level then the Canucks have the advantage in net. The betting here says he does so we are taking Vancouver +240. We'll also throw a small taste on them on the reverse/alternate puck line -1.5 +550.
Good luck to all.

2-4-1 Tuesday Night Parlay
Murls Take: "Hey bartender, Jobu needs a refill!" is a common line from my buddy Vickers when he is at a 2-4-1 night. So let's get it going building off the Edmonton play last night. The Pens are making a push to win the division and what a nice soft patch at home versus the Devils. Sid only gets stronger as the season goes on so I am looking for the Pens to keep their good home form going tonight. The Leafs must have been looking ahead to their own bar special when they gave away a game to the Canucks after the COVID. This won't happen again. The Leafs know what is on the line and if they lose again the fans will turn on them worse than what we see with soccer fans against the Super League. They will win this game easily and our tickets will cash.
Murls Pick: Leafs 5, Canucks 1; Pens 4, Devils 1
Murley's Best Bet: Pens three-way/Leafs three-way parlay +149 (both teams must win in regulation)
