Tonight in the NHL there isn’t really a packed schedule. This will be short and sweet. Our picks for Friday October 11th, 2019 are going to be as followed.
This is our second edition of the gambling corner where we give you our picks for the nights games. Our first post about this couldn’t have turned out any worse even if we tried. Our picks to see who would win were a complete disaster. We did get the St. Louis Blues beating the Toronto Maple Leafs correct though.
The NHL hockey games that are being played on the night of October 11th, 2019 are listed below.
Florida Panthers at Buffalo Sabres
The Florida Panthers have it in tough today against the Buffalo Sabres. The Sabres which have had a surprise start and are playing really well will also look to turn some heads.
Buffalo looks to go with Linus Ullmark for the start in tonights game against the Panthers. You will also have to watch out for Jack Eichel and Jeff Skinner who are dominating thus far.
As for the Florida Panthers they have very high expectations on where to go this year. They are looking to make the playoffs and have one of the best goalies and coaches in the game. It hasn’t been confirmed that Bobrovsky will start it given the recent success that Buffalo has had, it apparent he will likely get the nod.
This game is likely to be a close one but thats not what the lines have it as on the proline.ca website. The odds posted on there website are a 1.65 for a Florida win and a 2.00 for a Buffalo win. If you place a $10 wager on this on and Buffalo wins you get back $20.
We are going to take the Buffalo Sabres for those odds all day long.
Anaheim Ducks vs. Columbus Blue Jackets
The Columbus Blue Jackets have been predictably struggling coming out of the gate. In the offseason this team lost a bunch of core members of this hockey club and are going to be looking just to salvage the season. Anaheim however is looking for a bounce back season and the team appears to be ready to do so.
In tonights matchup between the 2 teams you will most likely see Anaheim play Ryan Miller start between the pipes. As for the Columbus Blue Jackets you are likely to see Joonas Korpisalo.
Anaheim has come out to an impressive start this year and is looking very good early on. They are also a big dog in this one against Columbus which we find strange. The site proline.ca in Ontario has the Anaheim Ducks at a 2.20 line to win and the Columbus Blue Jackets at a 1.55.
Given the start to Anaheim this year so far we are going to say Anaheim is the team we will be picking for this one.
Carolina Hurricanes vs. New York Islanders
Carolina will be hosting the 1-2-0 Islanders this evening in Carolina. The Bunch of Jerks are looking to really improve on the season from there 4-0-0 start.
A lot of people are certainly surprised with the play of the Hurricanes so far. The Carolina Hurricanes will also look to continue the Storm Surge this evening.
Starting in goalie for the Carolina will likely be Petr Mrazek. While the New York Islanders are likely to go with Thomas Greiss. This game should be a good as Greiss is coming into the game with a .955 save percentage.
Proline.ca has the odds of this game going to Carolina big time. The Carolina Hurricane odds are at 1.45 where as the New York Islanders odds are at 2.50. Unfortunately for people looking to cash in on some underdog action we don’t think this will be the game to do it on.
We have the Carolina Hurricanes winning this one.
