Tonight is one of those night's when me and Murls basically write the same thing. The Preds are playing hungry and Juuse Saros is on fucking fire. If Saros starts tonight, we are loading up on Nashville in regulation only -110 (if Pekka Rinne starts, we're still on them just for a smaller amount). Saros is 4-1 vs. Columbus this season with a 1.40 and .954. I hate betting against friend of the show Elvis Merzlikins. But the Preds are out for blood and the Blue Jackets…aren't.
Let's fucking go, Smashville, and start the week with a monster win.
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 @ CBJ (ML +150, O/U 5)
Murls Take: What a weekend! I feel like I played a 3 in 3 and fought twice but I am here to battle and get on the board with a win in the NHL. The Preds are finally getting to full strength and Forsberg being back is a help to a PP that struggled for a while. Nashville needs to keep winning as Dallas is hot on their trail and will be in playoff mode. CBJ on the other hand have been cleaning their golf clubs and are an amazing -47 on the season. Torts message is about as stale as 4-day old pizza, which means you will eat but only out of necessity. We are on the Preds big to win this game.
Murls Pick: Preds 3, CBJ 1
Murley;s Best Bet: Predators 3-way -112
