Game Analysis

1* NHL - Free Pick on New York Islanders +115

I love this spot for the Islanders as a small road dog against the Jets. These two are headed in opposite directions, as New York has won two in row, while Winnipeg has dropped two straight, at home. 

Islanders are really riding a high right now, as they followed up a 3-2 shootout win against the Panthers with an epic overtime victory against the defending champs on Monday. NY trailed St Louis 2-0 with less than 6 minutes to play in the 3rd. They got it to 2-1 and tied it up with 26 seconds to play before winning it in OT. 

Winnipeg didn't just lose back-to-back home games, they were beat pretty badly in both contests, losing 7-2 to Pittsburgh and 4-2 to Arizona. 

Islanders are an impressive 11-2 in their last 13 games off an overtime win and are winning in this spot by a solid 1.4 goals/game. Take New York!

NHL | Sabres vs Kings
Play on: Kings -125 at 1BetVegas
Game Analysis

1* Free Play on Kings -125

A dream start for the Sabres (5-1-1, 11 points) came to an abrupt end with a 5-2 loss to Anaheim. Tonight, the Kings (2-4-0, 4 points) will hope to add to Buffalo’s frustration in a contest in Los Angeles.

For Buffalo, three straight wins followed an overtime loss to Columbus before yesterday’s defeat to the Ducks. With L.A. getting a day of rest, the Sabres are at the disadvantage of playing their second game in as many days.

On average, Buffalo is scoring 3.71 goals per game (tied for 7th in the NHL) while allowing 2.57 goals per game (tied for 6th in the NHL).

The Sabres have the benefit of widespread firepower. Center Jack Eichel leads the team with 10 points on four goals and six assists, but isn’t the leader in either category. While Victor Olofsson has scored a team-high six goals, defenseman Rasmus Dahlin leads the team with seven assists.

The Kings failed to score in their most recent game, which came against Carolina. L.A. currently sits in last place of the Pacific Division.

On average, the Kings are scoring 3.33 goals per game while allowing 4.67 goals per game.

Dustin Brown leads the team with three goals, but center Anze Kopitar is tops on the team with eight points on two goals and six assists.

NHL | Canucks vs Blues
Play on: Blues -178 at BMaker
Game Analysis

I used the Canucks as my complimentary play the last time that they played. Here's an excerpt of what I said: "The Canucks are 0-2 on the road and 2-0 here at home. Thus far, I'm 3-0 in their games. Knowing they've got a road trip on deck, I like their chances of closing out the homestand with another victory. Both last season's meetings were won by the home team, each by identical 3-2 scores. I played against the Wings in their last game and they lost 5-2. Thats noteworthy, as they're are an ugly 19-44 (-16.6) the past couple of seasons, after allowing four or more goals in their previous game ... " Sure enough, the Canucks won that game. They're now 3-0 at home but 0-2 on the road. Tonight, however, the road trip I spoke of has started. While the Canucks will probably get "off the schneid" during the trip, by getting their first road win, I don't see it happening here. The Blues were laying -290 the last time that they hosted the Canucks. (They won 3-2.) We're getting them at a much better price tonight and I expect them to finish on top once again. Consider St. Louis. 

100% PERFECT THIS FOOTBALL SEASON - RECORD ON LINE TONIGHT!

Ben Burns is well known, in some circles, for his REMARKABLE SUCCESS with second half plays. He's also got a knack for picking winners in the first half. So far this season, he's 7-1/88% with his publicly released First Half plays. That includes a PERFECT 4-0 RECORD with totals. You can expect him to stay 100% PERFECT YTD with his TNF "BLUE CHIP!" Its the Chiefs taking on the Broncos and its a BEAUTY. Be there!

The NHL season is almost as long as the NBA season, which gives us plenty of opportunities to take advantage of weak lines and cash in.  Since the season overlaps so heavily, and there is more action some nights than there is in pro basketball, we though it would be a good idea to recruit some hockey experts to the site.

So, even though FreeNBABasketballPicks.com was established as a home to the best in pro basketball handicapping, we are quickly becoming known as a one stop shop for all betting needs.
