February 28th, 2020 | The Hockey Betting Podcast
RECAP: On today’s episode (02/28/2020), The Hockey Betting Podcast offered a classic example of Brian and Cam’s sense of hockey timing. Few gamblers would have had the stomach to take the last place Los Angeles Kings at the rampaging Vegas Golden Knights on Sunday, but the guys took the big +276 price and were rewarded with a 4-1 LA win. On Friday the guys had that same Vegas club in their 4-2 home win over the Buffalo Sabres, while on Saturday, Cam had LA in an overtime win over the New Jersey Devils. Additionally, Cam enjoyed a strong winning play on the Toronto Maple Leafs Saturday night. It’s that exquisite feel for the game that makes The Hockey Betting Podcast a must-listen.
The latest episode of The Hockey Betting Podcast has Brian Blessing and Cam Stewart taking a look at games for Friday, February 28, Saturday, February 29, and Sunday March 1, 2020.
Puckheads will get their fill of hockey action this weekend with almost every game on the board counting towards the 2020 Stanley Cup Playoffs. Brian and Cam have full analysis and a top selection of NHL picks for a great weekend of hockey.
Listen to the latest episode of The Hockey Betting Podcast to get all of Brian and Cam’s picks.
Friday, February 28th 2020 NHL Schedule, Betting Odds, Picks
New York Rangers at Philadelphia Flyers -162 (NHL Network, SN)
On the last few episodes of The Hockey Betting Podcast Cam has sung the praises of New York, especially in road games where they are 17-11-2. But the Flyers are 22-5-4 at home. Both teams are on fire. And NYR is getting the big dog price. Cam sees a lot of offence here but will pass on the side.
Minnesota Wild at Columbus Blue Jackets -117
On Wednesday’s episode (02/26/2020) of The Hockey Betting Podcast the guys voiced doubts about CBJ being able to stay in the race for the 2020 Stanley Cup Playoffs due to a lack of offence. However, over the total is Cam’s pick here with the CBJ goaltending situation unsettled.
Colorado Avalanche at Carolina Hurricanes -118
Injury ravaged Colorado has still managed to win four in a row. Carolina hangs by a thread in the Eastern Conference playoff race with their top two goalies on the shelf. Listen now to The Hockey Betting Podcast for a strong NHL pick from Cam in this one.
Buffalo Sabres at Vegas Golden Knights -235 (SN)
Vegas brings red hot dice with seven straight wins and has taken command of the Pacific Division, but the erratic Sabres have won five of their last seven. VGK backers may prefer puck lines over this massive lay. Listen to today’s episode of The Hockey Betting Podcast for a great story from Brian that pertains to this game, as well as full analysis and the guy’s NHL picks on this one.
Pittsburgh Penguins -167 at Anaheim Ducks
The not-so-mighty Ducks have lost seven of their last 10, but the expensive Pens have lost five of their last eight and flopped 2-1 at the last place Kings as -196 chalks on Wednesday. Anaheim has caught Brian’s eye lately with good effort in the role of spoiler. He sees a lot of goals here, and Cam agrees with both points.
Saturday, February 29th 2020 NHL Schedule, Betting Odds, Picks
Boston Bruins at New York Islanders (NHL Network, SN)
This matinee features two of the best defensive teams in the NHL. But Boston has vastly more goal scoring firepower. Listen to today’s episode of The Hockey Betting Podcast for Cam’s big NHL pick.
New Jersey Devils at Los Angeles Kings
With these two teams out of the playoff race play in a Saturday matinee at Los Angeles, the sportsbooks should post a prop for over/under on empty seats. Cam has been the Devils biggest backer on The Hockey Betting Podcast over the past two weeks, and New Jersey has delivered with seven wins in their last 10 games. But Cam likes the Kings here with fresh call-ups playing hard.
Calgary Flames at Tampa Bay Lightning
The Bolts have cooled off but continue to command big prices as home chalks. Somehow Calgary continues to defy the NHL odds despite mediocre metrics and a -6-goal differential on the season. The guys foresee plenty of offence here.
Chicago Blackhawks at Florida Panthers
As the guys said on Wednesday’s episode (02/26/2020) of The Hockey Betting Podcast, the Panthers can’t be trusted. Yet, they are only two points out of the last spot in the East for the 2020 Stanley Cup Playoffs. Chicago has won only two of their last 10. Cam likes Florida while Brian sees a high scoring game. Could newly arrived Malcolm Subban be between the pipes for Chicago?
Colorado Avalanche at Nashville Predators
Cam called Nashville a fraud on Wednesday’s episode (02/26/2020), but the Preds have won five of their last seven to gain Western Conference playoff position. Brian likes the Preds in this situation as does Cam based on the low Nashville price.
Vancouver Canucks at Toronto Maple Leafs (CBC, NHL Network)
Which Toronto Maple Leafs team will show up Saturday night? Get a strong double play pick for this one from Cam by listening to today’s episode of The Hockey Betting Podcast.
Carolina Hurricanes at Montreal Canadiens
With their top two goalies out and a playoff position in the balance perhaps the Canes should bring back David Ayres. Les Habitants have dropped six of their last eight and are only 13-15-6 at home. Cam passes on the side, but the guys agree on over the total.
Detroit Red Wings at Ottawa Senators (SN1)
On our last several episodes the guys have admitted a soft spot for hard-working Ottawa. Cam likes Ottawa and under as Detroit can’t score.
Buffalo Sabres at Arizona Coyotes
The Desert Dogs continue to struggle to light the lamp yet are tied in the last Western Conference slot for the 2020 Stanley Cup Playoffs. This is the dreaded third road game in four nights for the Sabres. Cam sees Buffalo as a sneaky dog at Arizona, especially with a lot of Sabres fans on hand.
Dallas Stars at St. Louis Blues
The Note is playing sweet music with five straight wins to expand their lead to three points for top spot in the West. The Dallas offence remains a drag. Get a strong pick from Cam in this game now on today’s episode of The Hockey Betting Podcast.
Winnipeg Jets at Edmonton Oilers (CBC, SN)
On Wednesday’s episode (02/26/2020) of The Hockey Betting Podcast the guys voiced a lot of doubt about Winnipeg, who has lost five of their last eight, while singing the praises of the Oil, despite their slump of four losses in five games and the return of Connor McDavid. Get the free NHL pick from the guys when you listen to The Hockey Betting Podcast.
Pittsburgh Penguins at San Jose Sharks
San Jose has dropped six of their last eight, but the Pens are playing their third road game in four nights and have lost four of their last five. Cam yells “PASS!” while Brian says neither team can be trusted.
Sunday, March 1st, 2020 NHL Schedule, Betting Odds, Picks
Philadelphia Flyers at New York Rangers (NBC)
The Broadway Blueshirts have not been a good value at Madison Square Garden. Cam has a “love” selection here and is all over the side. Listen to The Hockey Betting Podcast to get the pick.
Calgary Flames at Florida Panthers
This wraps up a five-game road trip for the Flames, who are also playing their third in four days. But as the guys repeatedly say Florida can’t be trusted. Can the NHL odds total be listed high enough for this one? No defence is expected between the Flames and Panthers.
Vancouver Canucks at Columbus Blue Jackets
It’s “Vancouver or nothing” for Cam here.
New Jersey Devils at Anaheim Ducks
Brian is impressed with the Ducks and will take them here. Cam agrees.
Washington Capitals at Minnesota Wild (NBCSN)
Cam likes the visitors on Sunday’s card including this one.
Los Angeles Kings at Vegas Golden Knights (NBCSN)
The Knights have been Golden recently, but Vegas will carry a massive price tag in this one. New call-ups have given LA much-needed fresh blood. Listen to The Hockey Betting Podcast for complete analysis and a potentially interesting angle on this getaway game for Sunday.
