Thursday could also be all about March Insanity (and we’ve got you lined with the betting angles for the video games right here on Yardbarker), however there stays some super video games of curiosity within the NHL.
I’ve discovered three specifically that I like for scoring, so I’ve loaded up overs for every.
Let me clarify what I am seeing Thursday night time in hockey.
Washington-Columbus over 6.5 (-105 DK)
My preliminary draw right here was positively on the Washington facet, however after a bit extra digging, I believe there’s sufficient juice on the Columbus finish to be ok with the sport’s over.
The Blue Jackets are averaging 3.eight objectives per recreation of their final 5 at residence and the Capitals are letting in 3.Four on the street of their final 5. So, at first look, that is an excellent possibility.
My preliminary concern was Columbus on a back-to-back, however my trepidation was quelled after a short look again into their back-to-back historical past this season.
Within the 9 B2Bs the Blue Jackets have performed, the sport’s common objectives come out to eight.zero per contest.
Columbus tends to let up extra objectives to opponents in these conditions, which additional cements my preliminary thought of focusing on the Capitals for scoring.
Washington is averaging 3.7 objectives per recreation of their previous ten on the street, whereas Columbus is averaging 3.9 objectives allowed of their final ten at residence.
There’s lots to love right here, and it helps that we’ve got three prior video games between these two groups this season.
The full has gone over twice, the cherry on high of this choose.
Buffalo-Edmonton over 6.5 (-120 DK)
This recreation has a lot that factors to the over, so I am following the indicators.
Let’s begin with some easy numbers: Edmonton is averaging 4.zero objectives per recreation of their final 5 at residence and Buffalo is letting up 4.2 on the street of their previous 5.
That actually makes you’re keen on the Oilers facet, and I do anticipate them to do the heavy lifting right here.
It is all the time a good wager to load up the opponent of Edmonton when Mike Smith is in web, and sure, that will be tonight.
Smith is permitting 3.57 objectives per recreation this season, and the Oilers as a crew are seeing opponents web 4.2 objectives towards them of their previous 5 at residence.
Buffalo’s scoring has tapered off a bit, however on an anticipated objectives for foundation, they’re due for a bump. Thursday seems like an excellent alternative for them to chip in Three right here.
I’ve a sense Tage Thompson scores tonight.
Islanders-Rangers over 5.5 (+100 DK)
We have the 2 New York groups going at it, and I completely love this 5.5 quantity at +100.
The Islanders have been on an over tear as a crew. The over is 9-2-1 of their final 12 video games, and I see a big energy play edge right here for the Isles, suggesting they will chip in a couple of objectives with the person benefit.
The Islanders are averaging 3.zero objectives per recreation of their final 5, and Igor Shesterkin has been leaking objectives currently, permitting 4 in again to again video games.
I am banking on the Rangers bringing the scoring punch on this one. They’re averaging 3.6 objectives per recreation of their final 5 at residence and the Islanders have been letting up three-plus objectives to opponents on a constant foundation.
4 straight Rangers video games have gone over, additional aiding the constructive tendencies on this one.
Via the anticipated objectives allowed lens, each of those New York groups needs to be letting in additional scores than they’re.
Add all of it up, and I believe we are able to get to six objectives right here.
Good luck tonight!
