Well, once again it was a tough night for under players in the NHL last night. At this point, despite being the best two teams left standing in the NHL, there are serious goaltending issues on both sides. It was discussed before the series began and dismissed by some “experts”, but the reality is: these two goaltenders are average at best. There is no excuse for giving up 5 goals in a Stanley Cup Finals game, yet here we are, picking up the pieces after another shoot-out. I won’t be going near any more totals in this series, and honestly, I probably won’t make anymore bets on hockey this season. If you checked out my Stanley Cup Tips articles before the series began, you’ll know that my best recommendation for sports betters was to make prop bets on whichever team they were backing, to win the series in both 6 and 7 games. At this point, the series is guaranteed to go at least 6 games, and will likely go the distance, so if you followed my advice, you are waiting for a pretty nice payday right about now.
As for today’s big race, we released our Belmont Stakes Picks on Thursday and nothing has changed. We are still mix-and-matching the horses we recommended betting on in exacta and trifecta combinations, looking to hit a big payday. It’s all about the favorites today, so all you long shot betters might not be too happy with our selections–but it’s all about winning money, and we like what we have on the board today. Either way, it’s up to you… best of luck today! –ajec
