Beat The Spread: Monday, June 3rd

It has been a while since we released our daily plays but we are back and back for good. Decided to go with a name switch for our plays because we are starting fresh. Mid-year resolution so let us go on a heatrrr. It is a quiet slate tonight because of the MLB draft, so we only have one play.

Before you know it we will be in the dog days of summer. Thankfully for us degenerate gamblers we still have the NHL and NBA finals to work with. Nothing worse than summer gambling consisting of MLB and the WNBA.

Tonight we have game 4 of the Stanley Cup Finals between St. Louis and Boston. Boston spanked the Blues 7-2 during game 3 in a dominating effort. I expect the Blues to play more discipline tonight and come out with a better effort, but I’m leaning towards the Bruins with tonights pick.

St. Louis has been down in two of the three previous series when game 4 rolls around. They have been here before so they know what to expect and it has gotten them this far. The Bruins are the better team plain and simple. If you’re a stat and analytic geek you will say well actually the Blues have better numbers 5v5 good for them. A simple eye test will tell you that the Bruins have been and are the better team in this series.

Jordan Binnington was pulled last game and goalies who have been pulled this offseason have returned with a 1-4 record. The Bruins have momentum right now and want to close this series out on home ice for game 5. The Bruins are firing on all cylinders right now and I expect them to win in St. Louis tonight. It will be a close game but Boston will be victorious.
