Our NHL Free Pick looks at the ramifications of Game One’s 3-2 win by Tampa Bay over the Detroit Red Wings. A competitive game that was tied at two all going into the third. What will the fallout from this be? How can HRWager customers profit from this knowledge? Read all about it for this Friday the 15th game that starts at 7PM!
NHL Free Pick : All for Naught
Lots of Detroit positives did not translate into a win for them. Red Wings had a 2-1 lead and let it go. Mike Green got a goal. Seeing the defense chip in with scores is vital for the Wings. They outshot Tampa and kept them off the board on the power play. All of this and still they did not get the win. Very bad for them heading into Game Two. Teams that had to play until the last moment to secure a playoff spot typically run out of gas for the second game. Best chance to steal was the first one and they squandered it.
Not Many Playoff Pucklines
Scoring goes down in the playoffs as more teams become risk adverse. Playing the body and diving to block shots is increased. This has a tremendous increase of equity when they do hit. Tampa is a -155 ML favorite. The – 1 1/2 here will not only prevent you paying chalk but have our linemakers shelling it out to you. Howard was good but Ben Bishop had to be sharper as the Red Wings had numerous quality scoring chances. The real caveat with the Lightning is their top line dominance. So much better than the Wings skaters in most every aspect on Wednesday.
Forget the total and avoid the chalk of -155 ML here. The HRWager Free Pick of the Day is the Tampa Bay Lightning Puckline. They carry so much of the play tonight against a very tired Red Wings. Good fortune to your sports investment and we will see you on Saturday here at the HRW.
