Looking to get your offshore sports betting on? Try the Detroit Red Wings at Buffalo Sabres game on Friday, January 20th at KeyBank Center. NHL betting lines coming up soon from SBG Global sportsbook.
Successful Offshore Sports Betting Home Stand
The Red Wings wrapped up a successful home stand with a 6-5 shootout win over the Bruins on Wednesday. Detroit was down 1-4 in the first period but came back with a vengeance to turn the tables on Boston. That must’ve been some Trump-level locker room talk during the halftime. “There were some words said,” forward Gustav Nyquist said. And maybe some interpretive dance too, for good measure. “If we want to be in the [Stanley Cup Playoff] race, we have to play 60 minutes every night, not 40,” added forward Tomas Tatar.
Starting Goalie Jared Cordeau
Well yeah, otherwise it would be considered forfeit. Red Wings starting goalie Jared Cordeau got the gong after the Bruins’ third goal and was replaced with Petr Mrazek, who made 23 saves in relief. Dylan Larkin, Xavier Ouellet (no relation to Maryse), and Andreas Athanasius scored to put Detroit within one goal at 9:54. Tatar tied it 4-4 at 14:36. Boston rallied but Nyquist tied it again with 3:04 to go in the third period. Thomas Vanek and Frans Nielsen scored in the shootout for the Red Wings. Sports betting experts expect Detroit to continue its winning streak on their visit to Buffalo, and the NHL betting lines should go accordingly.
Sabres Loosing Streak
The Sabres have lost three of their last four games, most recently to the Maple Leafs. Buffalo took a 2-0 lead when Kyle Okposo scored at 10:16 and Evander Kane did likewise with 33 seconds to go in the first period. Unfortunately, Sabres goaltender Robin Lehner allowed three goals on 16 shots. You take 16 shots and what do you get? Another day older and being pulled in favor of Anders Nilsson, who made 15 saves and allowed one goal. William Carrier put Buffalo within 4-3, but the game ultimately slipped away from the Sabres for their third straight home loss. Buffalo has no trouble taking the lead, but is absolutely terrible at protecting it.
The Sabres have scored the first goal in eight of their last 10 games, but they have won only three of those games. In addition to that, four of their five losses this season when scoring first have come in the last 10 games. Just a little something for offshore sports betting buffs to take into account when they scot the NHL betting lines. Buffalo is last in the Eastern Conference’s Atlantic division with a 17-18-9 record and 43 points, right behind the Red Wings who have a 20-19-6 record and 46 points. Both teams have a couple more games than the Maple Leafs and the Senators (3rd and 4th in the division, respectively), but they’re already at the bottom of the barrel, so there is no way for either to go but up – or at least the Sabres; Detroit could still sink a little bit lower.
