Val’s Big Payday Parlay, pays +619
Straight up Overall Record for the Big Payday Plays 493-699, -23.41 units
New York Rangers -182
The Rangers travel to Columbus to play the Blue Jackets, the Rangers will be on a B2B off an embarrassing 2-1 lost to the Canadiens on home ice. Every time you think the Rangers have turned the corner they lose a game like last night versus a team they should beat easily. I expect Coach G. Gallant to light a fire under them tonight not take the Blue Jackets lightly and get the job done. The Rangers for some inexplicable reason are much stronger on the road (13-5-2-1) than at home (11-8-3-1) this season and playing the Jackets should only strengthen that road record.
Calgary Flames -129
The Flames are in Nashville to face the Preds tonight; the Preds have been very streaky this season with wins and losses, both have come in bunches, win four then lose five or six and then win three. They’re currently in one of those funks again having lost three straight and face a team in the Flames that have been scoring quite a bit of late. The Flames have scored three or more goals in five straight games, and have had a lot of success winning games in Nashville (9 of the last 12 meetings). I will back the Flames here as a road favorite.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers +125
The Bucs host America’s team in the Cowboys tonight. Could this be the last game for the GOAT in Tampa? Rumors are swirling that Brady will end up in Vegas or somewhere else next season; however, it is all speculation at this point. One thing is for sure and that is outside of the 49ers, not one favorite had it easy this weekend in the Wild Card games and I don’t expect it to be any different for the Cowboys tonight. I said it during last season’s playoffs and will say it again this playoffs, “I cannot and will not use my hard earned money to back a team coached by M. McCarthy”. Yes the Bucs have looked terrible most of the season and backed their way in, but the Cowboys haven’t looked great of late either and are 1-4 in games played on grass this season. If the Bucs O-Line can give Brady time in the pocket I like them to take this game.
