As an old-school, Boston-Irish-raised player, I'm used to gettting my action in between 6:30 and 7:30 (hence the post-dinner time publishing). Old habits die hard and all. So it's rare that I make a bet the morning/afternoon of the game. Today I did.
In Nashville tonight, it's gonna be fucking bananas. That place will be off the wall. Juuse Saros has been a monster for the last few months and he'll be locked in at home with the Preds facing elimintation. Alex Nedeljkovic has been his equal in the opposite crease. I'm expecting a tight-checking affair and the goalies being on their game just a bit more than the scorers. We're putting a husky-sized wager on UNDER 5.5 -135. If your shop has options for a lower under number, I'd even fiddle around with UND 3.5 a lil bit. Lil bit.
Thirsty Thursday = win more night!
Murls Take: Thirsty Thursday and $EBR is ready to roll. The first round is finishing up and one team is ready to continue their quest and one team is booking vacations. The Leafs have solved the riddle of Montreal which is score 3 goals and it's a win. Leafs handle this game easily and for their fans, the longer they go maybe Earl's will open up for a few Pink Whitneys…Let's try to take advantage of this mismatch and hope Montreal starts pulling their goalie with 5 minutes left.
Murls pick: Leafs 4, Canadiens 1
Murleys Best Bet: Leafs three-way -150, Leafs -1.5 +105, over 3 Leafs goals -135
Parlay Sidecar: Leafs/Carolina ML +135
