Gather around hockey fans and devoted gamblers, it’s time for our daily meeting before we go off and make some potentially regrettable decisions with our money. Today on the docket: 6 games, sorted into Gold picks, Silver Picks, Bronze Picks, and black lumps of coal.

Let’s see how today’s numbers break down, using the trusty database-recall system.

Wednesday’s Sheet: (Goalies updated 12PM PT)


Last night: “Yeah, just relax. I see it too, OK?… Florida is the Gold pick. Now before any Habs fans go ballistic/start crying, let me just say that betting MTL -175 doesn’t seem to be all that appealing, so it’s pretty much FLA +150ish or nothing in this game, anyway… I think that this is actually a decent spot to catch Montreal flat, after a significant comeback win in Washington.”

– This morning: “Wait for it… and Alex Auld is the starter. Commence the massive line movement. He’ll have to rebound (mentally) from a horrendous outing vs Calgary.

– For me, the one to think about is actually Anaheim -120 at home. Such a short price for such a good home team.

Agree with the Gold pick? Disagree with it? See a betting line on the board that seems wrong? You know what to do (fill up the comment section).
