Daily Sports Tips – Wednesday 31st October
Carolina Hurricanes vs Boston Bruins
Bruins To Win @ $2.00
The Bruins have had three days to stew on their 3-0 home loss to the Habs on Sunday. Now they head to Carolina to take on a Hurricanes side that has been a surprise contender in the East so far, despite a pretty so-so 3-2-1 record at home this season. Bruins right-winger David Pastrnak ranks second in the NHL in goals scored, while no Carolina player ranks inside the Top 20. This shapes up as a perfect bounce-back game for Boston away from home.
San Jose Sharks vs New York Rangers
San Jose Sharks/Over 5.5 Goals @ $2.60
Tough go for the Rangers to start the season. They are winless on away ice so far, and despite everyone knowing New York were heading toward a mini rebuild, nobody expected them to start the season 3-7-1. The Sharks, well it’s business as usual for San Jose. They sit fifth in the Western Conference and currently rank eighth in points. This should be a comfortable home win for San Jose.
Richard Gasquet vs Jack Sock
Set Betting: Gasquet 2-0 @ $2.20
Even at age 32, Richard Gasquet continues to remain competitive. He made it as far as the Semi-Final in the European Open last week, and as he now prepares for the Round of 32 at the Paris Masters, the Frenchman enter as the favourite. American Jack Sock is no easy-beat, but he’s been struggling for form recently. Sock failed to make it past the Round of 64 at the US Open, and more recently fell short in Switzerland. Gasquet’s experience should shine through tonight.
