Ron's Straight up Record: 76 wins 52 losses for (59%)

*Note: Ron went 11-4 (SU) on Saturday night and 13-0 (SU) on Saturday, October 28th for a combined Saturday record of 24-4!

Toronto vs. New Jersey

Ron's Comment: Ron Wilson might want to pack a few bottles of Tums this evening, because he's playing on the road against a team who will be in a nasty mood after losing 2 straight fight filled games vs. the Flyers. Plus, to make matters worst, when the Devils are at home on 3 days rest after a division game, they are 11-1 SU in this spot. Furthermore, this has the making of a low scoring game, as the UNDER is a perfect 6-0-1 for the Devils after losing 2 straight games after a division game. Furthermore, Toronto has seen the UNDER go to 12-4-1 when they hit the road, playing in back to back games and they are coming off a home lost in the first game of the back to back game situation. Brodeur has 3 shutouts lifetime vs. the Leafs and could make it 4 tonight!

Prediction: New Jersey 3 Toronto 0

Minnesota vs. Dallas

Ron's Comment: The Wild are 3-0 on the road this season, but their road wins were against Tampa Bay, Florida and Atlanta! Minnesota heads to Dallas for a Western Conference showdown with the Stars and they are 3-10-1 SU in Dallas since 2000 and 5 of the last 6 games between these 2 clubs has gone OVER the total in Big D. The Wild are Coach by Jacques Lemaire and Mario Tremblay, 2 ex-Montreal Canadiens coaches and players and guess who they have on Deck on Thursday night? You betcha, the Habs will be sitting in their hotel rooms tonight watching this game and this is your classic look ahead spot for the Wild. Marty Turco is 11-4-0 vs. Minnesota and the Stars, who lost 6-5 on Monday vs. Washington, are 8-2 SU for 80% after a non conference game the last 2 years.

Prediction: Dallas 5 Minnesota 2

Detroit vs. Anaheim

Ron's Comment: Nothing like going on a 4 game road trip and you're feeling good about your hockey team after winning those 4 games, to find out you have Detroit waiting for you in your first game back at home! Plus, the Detroit Red Wings are currently on a 5 game winning streak and have seen their last 6 games go OVER the posted total. In fact, looking over the data the last 5 years, when the Red Wings have seen the OVER go 5 or more they are a perfect 8-0 in their next game! Plus, the Ducks have the opportunity to come out flat here this evening, as they haven't played well in their 4 wins with the exception of the 6-4 win over the rusty Canadiens on Saturday night. But, the Red Wings aren't blowing teams out of the water either, but they have the experience to win the close ones; as they are 8-1 (SU) the last 2 years when they are coming off two 1-goal wins and that record goes to 13-4 (SU) last 5 years. Ducks come out flat and the Wings capitalize early.

Prediction: Detroit 4 Anaheim 1
