Free NHL Eastern Conference Finals Picks, Best Bets, and Parlays for 6/5/22

Last night the Colorado Avalanche all but ended the Western Conference Finals with a 4-2 win over Edmonton. They now have a 3-0 lead in the series and the Oilers will have to win four straight games to advance. Colorado is a relentless force that just keeps coming at you. Today, Tampa Bay is facing a must-win game against the Rangers as they try to climb back into their best of 7 series. Their backs are truly against the wall as they continue their quest to win 3 straight Stanley Cups.

.We got back in the winner’s circle with our Best Bets as we correctly predicted the Colorado in over the Oilers. Our Best Bet of the Day record is now 64-47 in 2022.

We went 1-0 betting the MoneyLine and our overall record is now 382-216 since the All-Star break.

Let’s take a closer look at tonight’s game between New York and Tampa Bay and see if we can make some money.

*PAPA DUDES BEST BET OF THE DAY* New York at Tampa Bay: New York leads the series 2-0: These two teams meet again this afternoon for Game 3, after the Rangers kept the home ice advantage with two wins in New York. Now the scene shifts to Tampa and the Lightning will be desperate for a win. New York has parlayed a tight-checking defense, with opportunistic scoring, and great goaltending to frustrate the defending champs. Igor Shesterkin has stopped 63 of the 67 shots he has faced and has outplayed All-World goalie Andrei Vasilevskiy in the first two games. New York is getting goals from a number of players up and down the lineup and have kept Tampa Bay under control. The Lightning played well in Game 2 and had a chance to pull that game out late but Shesterkin was strong in goal and held them off. This is a do-or-die game for them this afternoon and I think we can expect a tremendous push from this veteran bunch. But, will it be enough against a Rangers team that is a lot better than they are being given credit for. The value bet would be to take the Rangers because Tampa Bay is favored by too large a margin. But, Tampa is too proven to bet against today. PAPA DUDES BEST BET: Bet the MoneyLine on Tampa Bay -175
