The Islanders scored 7 goals last time out, with 5 goals in the last period vs the Bruins, but that is no their usual MO and tonight Im betting they get back the business of playing their usual conservative defensive style of play vs a Pittsburgh side, that they have triple revenge against. NY ISLANDERS are 14-4 UNDER  playing with triple revenge - 3 straight losses vs. opponent over the last 3 seasons. NHL Road teams where the total is 5.5 (PITTSBURGH) - after allowing 5 goals or more against opponent after scoring 6 goals or more in their previous game are 30-7 UNDER L/5 seasons for a 81% conversion rate for bettors.  Play UNDER

Stars vs Lightning
UNDER 5½ -120 Won
$100
Play Type: Premium
Dallas plays a very conservative style of hockey, that pays a great deal of attention  to defense . The Stars are tough to play against in transition, and pose problems for most teams  that depend on offensive flow for success like the defending champs. Add to that  their goaltender Khudobin (4-4-1) has been red hot stopping 92 of 94 shots to bring his goals-against average down to 2.35 per game and increase his save percentage to .928 and you have an edge in a goal output projection.  The Stars beat the Lightning 3-0 earlier this week, and Im betting they will strap themselves down again, and try to stay competitive with physical defensive brand of hockey which Im betting helps keep this game to a low scoring affair. Note: Bolts goalie Vasilevskiy (11-3-1, 1.87 goals against, .935 save percentage). 

DALLAS is 41-14 UNDER in a road game where where the total is 5.5 over the last 3 seasons. 

NHL Road teams where the total is 5.5 (DALLAS) - cold team - failing to cover 6 or 7 of their last 8 against the spread, extremely tired team - playing their 3rd road game in 4 days are 28-5 UNDER L/5 seasons for a 85% conversion rate for bettors including 2-0 this season.

Florida are coming off a hard fought come from behind  3-2 win over the Dallas Stars on Thursday night. Now  in an emotional letdown spot, Im betting on the slumping Carolina Canes taking advantage of a side that really exerted alot of energy last time out.Hurricanes are 9-3 in their last 12 games as a road favorite.Panthers are 1-5 in their last 6 when their opponent scores 2 goals or less in their previous game. Hurricanes are 8-3 in the last 11 meetings.Hurricanes are 4-1 in the last 5 meetings in Florida.

NHL  Road teams against the money line (CAROLINA) - off 2 consecutive road losses by 2 goals or more, with a winning record on the season playing another winning team in the first half of the season are 33-5 L/23 seasons for a 87% conversion rate for bettors.

SERVICE BIO

Experience & Awards

I have been wagering professionally on sports and horse racing for 30 years. 

My picks have been documented for 20 years.  I have earned numerous top 10 Basketball and Football finishes.  

My college football picks have profited in 16 of my last 18 seasons. In 2011 I went 68% for the year.

I was the 2009 NFL Handicapper of the Year in 2009  in a prestigious event.  I won the Ultimate Football NFL Championship in 2006.  In 2014 I overcame a slow start to finish 59-32 65%!  

I have been an NBA World Champion with 7 winning seasons the last 8 years.  

I also continue to beat the College Hoops book makers with a high volume attack on a yearly basis. 

Handicapping Approach

I have a firm belief in my systems.  There is not a sport I feel I can not beat.  

My handicapping can be best referred to as the 'The Smart Money Approach". I leave no stone unturned.  I have a large database of information and statistics.  I also take into consideration injuries, current and historical trends, and form.  I also factor in the weather, surface conditions, and line movement.

Sports Betting Is An Investment

Many gamblers offer causal explanations for long runs of good and bad performance.  The same is true of financial analysts.  The records of bettors and investors show the same variable successes and failures. 

Both investment opportunities show significant variables and both can give the investor an advantage.  You need to do the proper research to consider all the facts. If you do so a long term profit is more than attainable.

I think sports betting is even better than the stock market.  The investor/bettor has much more control over his funds. You can take a short break, and almost always know your bankroll has not been untouched.

In the markets you are leaving your 401K and other mutual investments in the hands of a volatile marketplace. Plus, you are being torched for huge handling fees by brokers on individual investments. These fees would make sports book managers drool.

I am not saying it is easy making a living from sports betting. But, the small percent who do consistently beat the books have a much better rate of return than that of any market investor!

This is the outlook I have on every wager I place in the sports wagering markets. I take my portfolio very seriously!

Money Management

To be a successful and profitable sports bettor you must always have a long term goal. Set that standard before you begin.  You need to set aside a fairly substantial bankroll.

If you want to be conservative you would wager no more than 1-2% of your bankroll per game.  No more than 3% on the best bets.

This might seem a little on the low side.  But, this is a long and turbulent battle with the books.  You will be happy that you practiced good money management and frugality.

Here are some additional guidelines I recommend.

1. Shop for your best possible lines (rogue lines) from the most reputable sources.

2. Stay disciplined and do not stray from recommended bankroll allocation on individual wagers. Chasing your wagers never a good idea.

3. Always keep in mind that your bankroll is your life line.  It must be treated the same way you would treat finances allocated for any business venture.

4. Buy off the hook on key numbers.

5. Understanding the importance and the art of middling.

6. Keep a record of all your wagers and results and use them as part of over all statistical data base.

These are some important factors that will help you in your quest for long term profits.

I leave you with a thought from the late great Jimmy the Greek. The house does not beat the player, it just gives him the opportunity to beat himself.

*Almost all selections have the same allocated bankroll %(which equals 1 betting unit). Strong selections will see our single game wagers doubled.  These plays are rated as GENERALS CLUB selections.
