    Griffin Carroll

    GriffyBets

    Griffin Carroll only began betting the NHL in 2021, but proved to be a quick study, amassing massive profits in his first two seasons. What started as a side distraction from one poor week of NFL betting turned into a full-time obsession with the intricacies of the ice. Griffin takes an analytical approach to his NHL bets, bringing forth the numbers and trends that matter most. Griffin dials in on home/away data with an emphasis on the disparities between power plays and penalty kills to power winning totals, sides and player props. Beyond the NHL, Griffin focuses on big plus-money NFL touchdown props. For Griffin Carroll media inquiries, contact SportsLine@CBSInteractive.com.

    Analysis:

    At this point, it's time to just accept that these conference finals aren't going to bring with it the goals we may want to see. Both meetings thus far between the Rangers and Panthers ended up with just three goals, and things should remain tight moving forward. The under has to be the play.

    Analysis:

    I think this series is going to be our best bet to see some fireworks with goal-scoring. Two of three meetings between Dallas and Edmonton this season ended with 7+ goals, and six of the last eight have hit that mark. The key trend I hope to see continue is the pace of both of these teams respective Game 1s this postseason. Edmonton's two opening games finished with nine and 11 goals, while both of Dallas's Game 1s ended with 7 goals. I'll nab the over in what should be a fun matchup.

    Analysis:

    Game 7 unders are a "set-and-forget" playoff puck approach with me. Expect both sides to tighten up and avoid mistakes here as this series hits its final game. Whoever scores first is likely to try and clamp down and slow the pace. Shots have been slowing on both ends of late, and this under 6 is 2-0-1 in the last three games. Fade goals here, and I do lean Edmonton winning

    Analysis:

    Colorado cannot afford to drop both games at home and head back to Dallas down 3-1, and I expect them to step up and avoid such a fate. The Avs were 31-10 at home in the regular season and are 2-1 in Colorado this postseason. I just think this Avalanche team is too good to go down without a fight, so give me a big Nathan MacKinnon game and a Colorado win this evening.

    Analysis:

    If it ain't broke. We've been on the over for both games this series, and we've thus cashed two overs. The series heads to Colorado, but I'm more than okay to keep backing goals here. Loving the scoring chances both teams are getting, and as long as these penalties keep piling up, so too should the scoring. At some point this series will tighten up, but I don't see that being in Game 3. Last time these two met in Colorado, they combined for 11 goals.

    Analysis:

    I'm going right back to the over for Game 2 in what has already started to show itself to be one of the best series this round. Dallas got out to a quick 3-0 lead before ultimately falling 4-3 in OT to Colorado. I expect a similar pace that sees both power play groups net a goal, and the Stars should be pushing the pace a bit here to avoid another 0-2 series hole. Six of the past seven meetings between these two sides has now gone for 7+ goals.

    Analysis:

    This is by far the series I'm most excited to take in, as both of these sides most definitely can win the Stanley Cup. I'm expecting goals here to get us going, Game 1s have been a bit more wide open this postseason while both sides figure each other out. The Avalanche's three road games in these playoffs have averaged 9.67 goals per game, and six straight meetings between these two have yielded 6+ goals, averaging 8.67 goals per game Enjoy the show, this series should be a treat.

    Analysis:

    It's going to be rinse and repeat for me here with another Game 7 under. These games just see things tighten up, and that's what I expect from this Dallas-Vegas game tonight. I lean the Stars way to win, but I far more prefer to simply fade the goals. Four of the past five games this series have gone under 5.5 goals.

    Analysis:

    This Canes-Rangers series has all the makings of a tight series in my eyes. Frederik Andersen and Igor Shesterkin have both shown the ability to take over games, and on the whole, this year's matchups have been low-scoring. New York has tallied just four total goals in three meetings, and beyond one high-scoring game, Carolina finished with only 1 and 0 goals in the two other games. Both teams figure to start a bit slow after a long lay-off, I'll take the under in this one.

    Analysis:

    This series has been incredibly physical, and the defensive ferocity has really upped its game of late. That, plus Jeremy Swayman and Joseph Woll are playing lights out between the pipes. It all adds up to an under here in Game 7. No game has yet gone over six goals, so feel free to buy this up to a flat 6 if you'd like some insurance. Three straight have gone under 5.5, including two straight 2-1 contests. A similar pace seems in store here.

    Analysis:

    Stubborn, or sticking to my guns? I'm going back to the over despite the 1-0 slugfest we saw on Monday. 13 of the last 17 meetings in the playoffs between these two has reached this 6 number, and games in Edmonton have averaged 8.0 goals in the eight games that were not a Game 7.

    Analysis:

    You could quite easily make the argument that Nashville should be up 3-1 in this series, or at the very least, it should be knotted up at two games apiece. Instead, Vancouver skates at home for a chance to advance, and after that demoralizing loss Sunday, I don't see the Preds winning here. Nashville has dominated in shots this series, but there have just been these brief windows in these games where it all goes up in smoke with a few quick Vancouver goals. I'm backing the Canucks to handle business, and a prop parlay of JT Miller and Brock Boeser to each get a point at +109 is a great look. Miller has five points in his past two and Boeser has four.

    Analysis:

    The Bruins host the Leafs tonight with a chance to close out the series, and I expect them to do so. Toronto is just reeling, and even if Auston Matthews can go, there's no guarantee he'll last all game, which is an obvious massive loss. The draw here for me goes beyond the power play edge I see for Boston (though, that does seem likely to continue). The Bruins blew a 3-1 series lead last postseason after putting up the best regular season in NHL history. You best believe that's top of mind, and I expect a spirited Boston effort at home. Props wise, I like David Pastrnak goal at +120 and Jake DeBrusk to record a point at +100.

    It's set and forget time in this series. Play the over, it has now hit in all three games this series and 10 of the past 16 playoff meetings. Some prop looks I like today: Adrian Kempe shots, Trevor Moore shots, Zach Hyman goal, Evander Kane shots. Have some fun with this game later tonight!
