It’s the start of a new week and a new bet for Ian and myself. The large bet at the end of the season still stands with dinner and back rub for whoever wins. But we decided to spice things up a little bit and add weekly bets to go along with it. This week: laundry. Whoever loses this week’s picks battle has to do the laundry (last time we had 8 loads so it’s a big deal.)
Last week, I trumped Ian with 19 wins and 17 losses to his 16 wins and 20 losses. This time I did something I haven’t done so far this season, I picked against my home team. With the loss of Evgeni Malkin to concussion-like symptoms, I think the Penguins will be no match for the Lightning’s powerful offense. Ian and I do agree on a few of the games though, so it’ll be interesting to see how things stack up after today as we start a new week. One thing is for sure, whoever loses will have quite the job come next weekend.
Here are our picks for today’s NHL action.
