Free NHL Eastern Conference Playoff Picks, Best Bets, and Parlays for 5/28/22

Will the home team continue to hold serve in or will the road team finally break through? That is what we are watching tonight in Game 6 of the Carolina-New York series. One thing we can pretty much predict is tight-checking defensive hockey from these two teams. There isn’t much that separates them and this game will be no different. The Tampa Bay Lightning are patiently waiting for the winner of this series in what should be a classic Western Conference Finals matchup. They might find out who their opponent is going to be after tonight.

Our Best Bet was looking good throughout the first 50 minutes of the game periods as the Blues were leading the Avalanche 2-1. But, Colorado tied the game at the end of a power play with 9:41 left, and scored the winner with only 4.9 seconds remaining. Our Best Bet of the Day record is now 60-44 since the All-Star Break.

We went 1-0 betting the MoneyLine and our overall record is now 379-213 as the playoffs continue.

Let’s take a closer look at the New-York-Carolina matchup and see what Vegas is thinking about Game 6 in Madison Square Garden.

*PAPA DUDES BEST BET OF THE DAY* New York at Carolina: Carolina leads the series 3-2: The law of averages says the Hurricanes are finally going to win a game on the road in these playoffs. Tonight, would be a perfect time to do that and end what has been a closely contested series with the New York Rangers. There really is nothing new to say when analyzing this series. Both teams are evenly matched and every game has been tightly contested. In matchups like this, it will come down to a mistake here and there, and a lucky bounce or a lucky goal. Both goaltenders have been excellent and both teams have played their style of hockey. The obvious Best Bet is to take the UNDER 5.5 total goals, because every game has been under that total, but isn’t that a boring bet? Vegas sees this game as a toss-up, because that’s what every game has been. I’m going to take the Hurricanes to close out the series because there is more value in taking them.
