There are some good NHL bets to be had, as Saturday is a marathon of Stanley Cup playoff action. The Vegas Golden Knights visit the Winnipeg Jets, followed by Toronto in Tampa Bay, followed by Colorado in Seattle, and New Jersey paying the tunnel tolls to visit the New York Rangers.

We’ve been pretty good, despite Seattle and Winnipeg delivering a couple of pretty good upsets in Game 1. The NHL bets we like today are:
**We like Winnipeg on the Moneyline (-120). Because this series has been unpredictable, the lines are tight. The only big play here is taking Vegas on the in-game bet to win by multiple goals (+145). We’re very tempted, but keep your sword dry on this one.
**Toronto and Tampa Bay have each blown out the other. The Toronto Maple Leafs played like it was Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Final in Game 2 because, in part, it seemed like more than their season was on the line. It seems keeping their team together is on the line. Can they play like that again?
This is going to be a wild series. It will be much tougher for the Maple Leafs without the wild Toronto crowd to feed them. We like Tampa Bay by multiple goals today. ALL of the money is flowing to Toronto, so we’re going against ALL the money and buying up Tampa Bay -1.5 (+213).
**We don’t like New York-New Jersey. The Rangers won both in New Jersey, and the Devils are getting an education. The bets are swinging to the Rangers, so the payouts are bad, and we’re not going to argue for the Devils getting back in it. Unless you have a big gut feeling for the Devils, stay away.
**Seattle is giving Colorado more than it can handle. The Avalanche had to squeak by in Game 2, but Game 3 will be in front of an insane Seattle crowd. It’s hard not to bet on Seattle today, as oddsmakers are making them a home underdog.
Did we miss something? Nope. Take advantage of presumptuous bettors and cash in. Take Seattle on the Moneyline (+130).
If your first bet with them is wrong, it boomerangs back for a second chance. Get the Caesars promo code.
