Disappointing turn out last night, but the money line is staying hot as the Flames back up goaltender David Rittich was able to keep the Preds to 3 goals and secure the one-point victory. Huston upset Cincinnati despite not scoring for minutes at a time. Team USA Hockey pulled out the win but failed to cover against Slovakia sinking the parlay to a 1-1-0 record.
Straight Pick (Money Line): (2-0-0)
-140 Dallas Stars (33-20-4) vs. St. Louis Blues (34-21-4)
With an opportunity to tie the third-place Blues at 72 points in the Central Division, expect Dallas to bring the noise and take advantage of being on home ice.
Straight Pick (Spread): (0-2-0)
-1½ Carolina Hurricanes (27-22-9) vs. NY Islanders (28-25-6)
The Isles have only won two out of seven games in the month of February and the Canes look to bounce back after dropping a game in New Jersey.
Over 144 Princeton @ Columbia
Took this pick from a model* I’ve been working on, and if it’s calculations are correct the score should be between 148 and 151.
* I threw some numbers in an excel spreadsheet and did simple math
-145 Canisius Golden Griffins (18-9,12-2) @ Monmouth Hawks (9-17,5-9)
+100 Georgia Southern (16-10,7-6) vs. Georgia State (19-7,10-3)
Not really sure why these picks stood out to me, they just looked like winners. Canisius is a weird little school, they’re mediocre at best in most sports but the Griffins always tend to grab better’s interest.
