We swept our 2 article picks on the ice last night. Here’s my best attempt to run it back!
@FastMoneyLabs’ NHL Playoff Best Bets - 6/1
Adam Fox (NYR) Over 0.5 Assists (-105) vs. TBL
Tampa’s been off since since May 23rd, which helps from a rest perspective but killed their momentum going into the Conference Final.
The opposite is true for NYR, who lack rest but carry momentum. They also have home ice advantage. The Blue Shirts have yet to lose in regulation at Madison Square Garden (MSG) in the postseason. They’re 5-1 in these games with the only loss being in Triple OT.
This projects as a low scoring series with two solid goaltenders in net. Even still, I expect a couple goals tonight and especially from NYR for reasons mentioned above.
If I’m right, then I like 24-year-old Adam Fox’s chances to record an Assist. He’s tallied at least one in 5 straight contests and 5 of 7 playoff games at MSG. He also averaged an assist per game in 3 matchups vs. Tampa this year.
If you’re feeling risky, betting Fox to record a Power Play Point @ +186 is also a good option for the price. It cashed in 5 straight games, and most of Fox’s playoff points are coming via the Power Play.
