Betting on NHL playoffs second round series between the Lightning and the New York Islanders is what is called a toss-up. With the series tied one game apiece, tonight’s game 3 could be a turning point not only concerning who takes the lead, but also which team will eventually skate away with the series.
The Nashville Predators sealed the final ticket for the Second Round of the NHL Playoffs and sports betting now directs its attention to what’s next. Granted with the League’s bizarre schedule last night the West was defining the final ticket, while the East had the first game of the second round. Crazy start, but now we can get all in the same page and see who will make it to the Conference Finals. Here are our online betting predictions of who will move on, with the current series prices.
Are you betting on hockey and do not know what a Grand Salami is? There is no need to be ashamed of that. According to the last poll, 95% of new bettors admit to not knowing that either (disclaimer: poll and results may be imaginary). But with the NHL playoffs in full swing, it might literally pay off to become acquainted with this particular term. Basically, a Grand Salami is betting on the over/under total of goals in every hockey game played in a single day. That is that there is to it. Such sites as SBG Global sportsbook will include a Grand Salami option of total amount of away goals and home goals in a night’s action.
Are the Blues the new black? St. Louis took out the not-for-long-still-reigning Stanley Cup Champions the Chicago Blackhawks in seven games. Chicago blues may be one of the most important influences on modern music, but the ’Hawks had nothing on the St. Louis Blues. That doesn’t mean its all downhill from here, though. Some mofos are always trying to ice skate uphill, and the Blues won’t have any choice but to when they face the number 1 seed in the Western Conference, the Dallas Stars, in the second round of the NHL playoffs.
If betting on hockey were like in cartoons, the Penguins would obviously be favorites in the NHL playoffs second round series pitting the Pittsburgh team against the Washington Capitals. Of course, if that were the case, they would be actual penguins. But since they are not, the Caps are online betting favorites (odds -135) to win game one, which they host tonight. Though to be fair, Pittsburgh did own the Blueshirts in their first round series – making fast decisions, fast passes, and keeping their (happy) feet moving all the time, as real penguins are wont to do.
