Week 6 Betting Lines (Spring 2023)

Shooting Blancs (+185)
Green Street Hooligans (-270)
Over 5.5 (-135)
Under 5.5 (-105)

Notes: Classic Friday as everyone is missing players and I am violently hungover from a random Thursday night adventure so will keep these short. This game isn’t too bad although I’m not quite sure how white drafted two goalies but was the only team that needed a goalie sub tonight. Jacob Green will jump in net and it seems like they have most of their lineup in for this one, but green has most of its roster in (minus Eli and Neil) and will be amped up to win this game after a tough loss last week, their first of the season. It’s one of the better matchups the Blancs will have but assuming Tom and Stern are in, I still think green takes it down. Also Friday games are weird; leaning towards the over.

I Just Blue Myself (-130)
MelRose Place (-110)
Over 5.5 (-120)
Under 5.5 (-120)

Notes: Yellow will have Danilo, Pags, DRo, Reape, Wright, Jacobson, Mel, maybe Nestor, maybe Goose, Sammi subbing and a possibly kinda hurt but still playing through it due to gambling debts Ridzik. Blue will have Alex (that’s me), Gelman, McNeil, Eli, Robyn and Caitlin in with Cherie/Mikey/Tim all questionable for this game. Cherie and Mikey should be showing up albeit a little late; Tim was supposed to do the same but it appears flight delays fuck over other sexy hockey players besides just me.

For those who have been waiting all season, wait no longer – this is your official McQuade special. Tough game to handicap and much of it will depend on when the blue GTD squad shows up. Bet at your own risk.

The Narwhals (-170)
Green Street Hooligans (+125)
Over 6.0 (-120)
Under 6.0 (-120)

Notes: Purple is only missing Russ and maybe Shan as Jack demands loyalty and rules through fear. Yehuda is most definitely not ruling through fear but as mentioned earlier, the Hooligans won’t have Neil or Eli Karp. They also claimed to be a bit tired for game 2 last week but some players (me included) enjoy getting a warmup game and they’ll have a break in between this time, although past seasons data generally shows no statistically significant difference between teams who play back-to-back and teams who have a one game break. Might come down to personal preference I suppose. In any case, this is around a coin-flip at full strength but absences move this line nicely in purple’s favor. Narwhals to pick up the W and make a run towards reclaiming 1st.

I Just Blue Myself (+115)
Hungry Hippos 2.0 (-160)
Over 6.0 (-110)
Under 6.0 (-130)

Notes: The Hippos will have everyone except for Stabel, Dewey, Carley, Lucas and Sang. Blue will have the lineup from the earlier game and (hopefully) all of the GTD squad although Tim just texted me that his flight has already been delayed twice which does not bode well for this game for post-game pirate shots. Speaking of which, I am told that the legendary Fireball Bowl turned Preworkout Bowl has officially been renamed again

Truly fantastic. Pirate shots on this game and I am sad to say the Hippos are favored. So good chance I will have to buy Hicks pirate shots after this game, although I was already planning to do so and probably like 5-6 rounds worth anyways. Tough game to handicap. Gameflow should be fairly open but goalies are elite. Honestly this is probably another McQuade special but who can avoid the temptation to bet on the prestigious Bad Boy Mowers Pirate Bowl. Live stream should be electric.

The Narwhals (-180)
Medium Rare (+140)
Over 6.0 (-120)
Under 6.0 (-120)

Notes: I don’t know who’s showing up for pink but as mentioned earlier, purple has just about everyone. Sylvester had pink as the #1 team if Oberg stays out of the box. The bad news is that’s where he lives and also that he is extra horny on Friday nights. The good news for purple is that Jack is also fairly horny, albeit in a much more professional manner. For the purposes of going on with my day and not writing another 5000 words I’m not even going to talk about Kev, Source or Mahoney’s horniness. Simply do not have the time. Just bet on purple and thank me later. Also come to Dorrian’s if you want to see a grown man cry (this will be everyone who does pirate shots for the first time this evening).
