Tuesday Stick Time: 1/2/18

First post in the new year and hopefully we will continue, or start, to be Bettor Than Half. We have a big slate tonight with 12 games. As a disclaimer, I recently changed the way I have been betting. I have been playing the puck lines instead of the totals or moneylines which is essentially the spread in football. The kicker in hockey is usually all of the spreads or puck lines are +/- 1.5. Let’s take a look at a game tonight between the Jets and Av’s. The Avalanche are home dogs tonight (+110) and the Jets are at (-140). I see the Jets winning this game and winning it by more than 1 goal. The puck line is set at -1.5 (+205) which gives us better odds than the -140 if we bet the Jets moneyline. Obviously  the puck lines can be dangerous, but that EN goal with 20 seconds left in the game will be your savior. So I would keep an eye on some of the puck lines if you love a team but hate the odds you are getting. With that introduction, here are the puck lines I like tonight:
