Conference Finals Gambling Preview

NHL: Stanley Cup Playoffs-Boston Bruins at Tampa Bay Lightning John E. Sokolowski-USA TODAY Sports

It’s time for the second-last installment in my round-by-round gambling previews of the 2020 NHL playoffs. If you followed all of my picks from the last round, only Dallas paid out. They paid out pretty big, at 3.15, but, that still means that if you put $100 on all of my picks from the conference semis, you would’ve lost $85. That also means, that if you had put $100 on every pick I’ve made from these playoffs, you’d be down for the first time. Down $50 overall, to be exact.

let’s see if it gets any better.

There you go. Hopefully my luck turns around a little bit at the end here. Remember, these articles are purely written for educational purposes. Please don’t gamble as a source of income, it is purely a recreational activity done for fun. If it gets to the point where it is no longer fun, please stop.

Or don’t, you’re adults (hopefully).

Keep your sticks on the ice.
