6 TEAM PARLAYS: 2-20 = +$2,496

6 CLUB PARLAY #21
1. CAPITALS -115 vs. Bruins = WIN
2. LAS VEGAS -190 @ San Jose = WIN
3. COLORADO -450 vs. LAK = WIN
4. NY STANKEES -195 @ Balt = WIN
5. CAROLINA -180 vs. Nash (TODAY)
*******


OPPOSITE PICKS: 244-233-2

NHL BOSTON -130 @ Washington
Bruins don’t want to fall behind 2-0 in the series. More importantly Caps will probably go with back up 39 year old Craig Anderson in goal because of the “lower back” injury to regular starter Vitek Vanacek. It’s one thing to come off the bench and do well, it’s another when a team has a couple of days to prepare for you. Bruins win 4-1.
OPPOSITE PICK: WASHINGTON +110

CAROLINA -180 vs. Nashville
I think this is the most lopsided 1st round series. Although the Preds won the last two regular season games vs. Carolina, they were worthless games for the Hurricanes who were 6-2 vs. Nashville this year….13-3 last 3 years. No reason to think that won’t continue here. Carolina had the 3rd most points in the league. They will have Nashville singing the Blues. OPPOSITE PICK: NASHVILLE +160

ST. LOUIS +1.5 goals Even @ Colorado
This line is WAY, WAY, WAY out of whack. Bottom line though is this could be -900. If I don’t think the Blues can win, what’s the difference? I do think they can win. Series went 5-3 in favor of Colorado but outside of an 8-0 win in game 2 of the season, all the others were 1 or 2 goal wins. Grab the dogs 1.5 goals to maybe win outright.
OPPOSITE PICK: COLORADO -1.5 goals

DODGERS -1.5 runs vs. Arizona
Its our weekly play…play on the Dodgers when Walker Buehler pitches. Dodgers are 43-21 when Buehler starts heading into this year. While they have struggled to get wins this year when Walker’s on the hill, it’s not because he hasn’t pitched well. Madison Baumgartner is on the hill for the D'backs. He’s allowed 2 earned runs over his last 25 innings. Pretty good, but I’ll still back the Dodgers who have seemingly broken out of their 4-14 slump with some solid play of late.
OPPOSITE PICK: ARIZONA +1.5 runs

YANKEES -1.5 runs @ Texas
Rangers just got swept in a 4 game series at Houston. They’ve now lost 6 straight. 1-3 Jordan Lyles with an ERA over 6 is on the hill for the Rangers. Gerritt Cole starts for the Stanks who got blitzed by Baltimore yesterday 10-6. They’ve still won 6 of 8 as, like the Dodgers, they have seemingly broken out of their funk. LOVE NY to roll over an outmatched Rangers team.
OPPOSITE PICK: TEXAS +1.5 runs
