NHL Monday Games Recap: Tim Stutzle Gives Senators the Win.
Puck Line Dogs Won Four of Five Games, Monday, +185 Units
A quick look at Monday’s scores and NHL odds shows that puck line bettor’s found success againt the Buffalo Sabres +1.5 (-215) being the only loser on what otherwise would have been a perfect night for underdog bettors. With that success comes a profitable night for underdog moneyline bettors with three of five dogs winning outright.
That provides a nice 227 unit profit. The over was 3-1-1 giving bettors a modest +178 unit win. We hope all your NHL picks and parlays cashed out, let’s take a glance at each of the five games and detail its relevance to the betting public as we continue our NHL Monday games recap.
|Last Updated: 02/14/2022||Calgary Flames||Ottawa senators|
In our second-half preview, we talked about how tough the Senators might be in the second half and this was a good start in that direction. The underdog Senators got a goal from Tim Stutzle 1:55 into overtime to give the Senators the win. The win gave goaltender Mads Sogaard his first win in Ottawa and second in his career.
The 22-year-old from Denmark made 25 saves in the first two periods, finishing with 34 overall. Sogaard played in place of Cam Talbot who will return in 7-10 days, while Anton Forsberg is out for the next 2-3 months. The number moved in the Flames’ direction early after opening -140 in most spots. By puck drop, Calgary was -170 behind 94% of the moneyline dollars backing the Flames. With the win, the Senators are still -505 units overall (22nd), Calgary falls to -1273 moneyline units loss (31st) and continues to be one of the league’s biggest disappointments.
|Last Updated: 02/14/2022||DETROIT RED WINGS||Vancouver Canucks|
Total bettors got the best of the book in this one with 93% over the money on the over. After two periods the Wings held a 3-1 lead, meaning that a three-goal third was what players needed to cash out. Detroit gave the public what it was looking for with ease with three goals in the period first 7:52.
Rick Tocchet’s team failed to score on four power-play chances and a penalty shot or this could have been an easier win for bettors. 31 of the Canucks 47 games have cashed over tickets (66%), their next game is tomorrow at the New York Rangers if you want to follow Vancouver’s over streak that has now reached eight games without an over.
|Last Updated: 02/14/2022||Florida Panthers||Minnesota Wild|
With shootout goals from Anton Lundell and Aleksander Barkov, the Florida Panthers steal a 1-2 road win from the Minnesota Wild. With the win, the Panthers are just one point behind the Pittsburgh Penguins for the final wild-card spot in the Eastern Conference. Minnesota, 3-6-1 last 10, owns a 1-point lead over the Colorado Avalanche for the third playoff spot in the Central Division.
With two games in hand, we expect the Avalanche to dethrone the Wild from that perch soon. The Wild will host the Avalanche, Wednesday. An NHL injury update, Wild forward Marcus Foligno was taken off the ice after taking a puck to his left knee. Early reports indicate that it’s not serious and will likely be available for their clash with the Avs. Bettors were riding the Panthers -1.5 (+220) but Florida was never able to extend a 1-0 second-period lead, and Kirill Kaprizov tied it a few minutes later and that’s the way it stood until the shootout.
|Last Updated: 02/14/2022||Arizona Coyotes||Nashville Predators|
In what was the biggest upset of the night, the ‘Yotes’ get a massive road win as a consensus +197 dog. Believe it or not, with the win Arizona has turned a profit for bettors this season (+57 units) despite a horrific 18-36 record.
As for the Predators, they continue to be a headache for the public with their 25-26 record, costing Predator backers 309 units. Nashville is just five points behind the Calgary Flames for the last wild card in the West, but losses like this continue to cloud bettors’ confidence that they’ll get there.
|Last Updated: 02/14/2022||Buffalo Sabres||Los Angeles Kings|
Our second-half preview wasn’t high on the Buffalo Sabres with last night solidifying why. Buffalo owns the fourth most difficult schedule in the second half and has already shown signs that they are offensively challenged with constant in-game line shifting.
The Sabres have dropped four straight games, all as underdogs, but have been outscored by their opponents 20-7 in that span. The last two games on this road trip are against the Anaheim Ducks and San Jose Sharks, anything less than a sweep would be devastating considering their upcoming NHL schedule. The game produced a winner with 97% of the money on the total siding with the over.
That does it for our NHL Monday games recap. We wish everyone a profitable Tuesday on the ice.Follow us on Twitter
