EPISODE RECAP: On this episode of The Hockey Betting Podcast, Cam Stewart’s prediction of more and more single-goal NHL outcomes – and underdog puck line victories – is looking better all the time. Late-week scores included four OT games, four one-goal regulation outcomes, and a Friday shoot-out in which the Chicago Blackhawks upset the visiting Tampa Bay Lightning. Calgary snapped back to form vs Ottawa in a game that didn’t surprise Brian Blessing at all. The Hockey Betting Podcast also nailed the problems between the pipes for Vegas, as tired netminder Marc-Andre Fleury took a break on Friday only to watch Swedish goaltender Oscar Dansk give up four goals. Max Pacioretty led the Golden Knight attack with three points as Vegas prevailed 5-4 in OT and the game easily blew-away its “Vegas” total. Toronto got lost in the scenery of Vancouver, and St. Louis beat Los Angeles without Vlad Tarasenko, yet another pair of moneyline wins for Cam. Listen to this episode of The Hockey Betting Podcast.
ORIGINAL ARTICLE: The March 4, 2021 episode of The Hockey Betting Podcast opens on a serious note, but it’s not the end of an era. Puckheads Brian Blessing and Cam Stewart lament a long history of close misses on PGA golf betting with Cam typecast as the perpetual bridesmaid on a recent streak of second place PGA picks. Meanwhile, in spite of Brian’s warning, the guys decide to cut this episode of The Hockey Betting Podcast in half and plan to produce a special Saturday/Sunday episode for this weekend’s huge slate of NHL games. The guys take a stand for 50-year-old slang minted by Don Cherry, and “Grapes” isn’t what Brian sees inside the jerseys of soft NHL teams. Who is tough enough to make an omelette in the league? Dylan Cozens steps up Yukon tough, and the guys explain where to find the best hip check in NHL betting. Listen to The Hockey Betting Podcast for all of Brian and Cam’s colorful hockey analysis, expert NHL betting advice and free NHL picks.
