DETROIT – Despite winning the first coaches challenges in NHL History, Mike Babcock and his Leafs did what they were supposed to do. They lost at home to Montreal 3-1 making a winner out of me.
Tonight we focus in on the Colts-Texans’ game in Houston. Andrew Luck has been ruled out for the Colts. The game opened as pickem but Houston is now favored by 4 1/2.
I am looking at the total which is 42 down from 45 1/2. I am not a fan at taking the under, but the Colts will have difficulty scoring without Luck. Most of the trends favor the under. For example in the Texans last 7 games as a home favorite the under hit in 5.
The under hit in 9 of the Colts 11 games and 20 of their last 27 divisional games. Give me the Colts/Texans under 42 as my PLAY OF THE DAY.
Wednesday Canadiens -155 over Maple Leafs WIN
Overall Record 28-20-1
