Carolina at NEW YORK (5' over, +120)
By Gus Augustine, Featured Handicapper
Sunday I delivered a 40 Dime NBA Total Winner on the Suns-Mavs Over.
Monday I hit a 40 Dime MLB Winner on the Rangers (+125) over the Angels.
Tuesday another 40 Dime NBA Total Winner on the Heat-Celtics Over.
Thursday I hit my 40 Dime Winner # 4 in a Row on the Heat-Celtics Over.
I hit a couple of snags, including Saturday's loss on the Celtics, but will close the weekend with a win on the baseball diamond.
Let's cash in with 40 Dime Winner # 5 of 7 as I look at the Mets and Rockies.
Mets - Rockies

With their backs against the wall, I like the New York Rangers to push the pace and with the Carolina Hurricanes send the total soaring.
We saw Games 1 and 2 trudge through and produce two low-scoring affairs. There have only been 5 goals scored in this series, and the Rangers have to do better than being shutout in Game 2.
Tonight will be oddly different, as we're going to see the offensive talent from both teams come out a bit more.
We need six goals, and it wouldn't shock me to see the one of these teams carrying a 3-2 lead into the third period, and we either get a game-tying goal to make it 3-3 late, or an empty-netter.
We're getting great value not only with the number at 5 1/2, but also a value at +120.
Look for a strong game from a group of the Rangers top guys, who will be pissed off after Carolina two wins, I expect to see scoring from both Artemi Panarin and Chris Kreider.
On Carolina's side, you're not holding that team to less than three goals in three consecutive games.
Play this one high.
3* OVER Rangers-Hurricanes

There is a saying in horse racing that goes like this, picking them up and putting them down, and that is what I need to do again tonight.
Last night I made it 5 of 6 on the winning side with another easy-money 1500♦ winner on the Miami Heat winning outright against the predictably unpredictable Boston Celtics.
Not only that, but I cleaned up for you with my Preakness Stakes winner on Early Voting across the board.
A banner day that is only good if I can follow it up with a winning Sunday.
Tonight I am back for Game Three of the Western Finals between the Warriors and the Mavericks.
I am all about making it 6 of 7 winning days.
Winning Day # 6 of 7

This one needs to be a winner, and it will be a winner, mark my words!
There has been a definite "force field" around the nets of both Igor Shesterkin and his counterpart Antti Raanta through the first pair of games in this Eastern Conference semifinals series between the host Rangers and the visiting Hurricanes, and just because we have a change in venues does not mean we are going to all of the sudden see an influx of goals in Game 3 at Madison Square Garden on Sunday afternoon.
Game 1 saw a total of 3 goals scored and it took overtime to notch that 3rd goal. That was an easy Under.
Game 2 on Friday saw just 2 goals scored and one of those goals came with 1.8 seconds remaining and the New York net empty. Again, another easy Under in the books.
It is clear this series is shaping up to be a series in which 2 goals sure look like it will be enough to get the "W", as both Raanta and Shesterkin are locked in, and their defenses are definitely helping them out.
Hurricanes and Rangers make it 3-for-3 Under the total.
5* CAROLINA-N.Y RANGERS UNDER
