Free NHL Picks
NHL Games on Friday April 30th, 2021
There will be just four NHL games on Friday, April 30th, 2021, but there is still ample opportunity to make some money. Check out our best hockey picks below before you place your bets! Also, as the lines change, be sure to check out the updated odds here.
Winnipeg Jets +105 @ Montreal Canadiens -120 O/U: 5.5
7:00 PM EST
The Jets have lost five straight at home, with just 6 goals scored over that span. However, they are 16-8-1 on the road this season, and are 3-1 on the road in this series. Winnipeg has also owned this series overall, with a 6-2 record this season and will be hungry for a win after getting smacked around by Edmonton and Toronto at home. Montreal has lost five of their last seven, so they are not playing their best hockey either. Considering how this matchup has played out, I will take the plus money and fade the home team here.
Pick: Winnipeg Jets +105
San Jose Sharks +200 @ Colorado Avalanche -260 O/U: 6
9:00 PM EST
Colorado comes into this game having lost three straight on the road but will be back home where they are 18-4-2 this season. The Sharks have won just two of ten and have allowed fewer than 3 goals just one time in that span. Colorado is averaging 3.5 goals per game this year but have their own issues with star goaltender Philipp Grubauer still out. Since he went down the Avalanche have given up 3.8 goals per game, so we should see some goals in this one.
Pick: Over 6
Vegas Golden Knights -185 @ Arizona Coyotes +160 O/U: 5.5
10:00 PM EST
The Golden Knights are 5-1 in this series and have won their last ten games. Arizona has lost four of five and will be without Conor Garland for a fourth straight game. He leads the team with 22 assists on the season. Vegas will likely be starting Robin Lenner in net, who is 5-1 on the road with a 1.67 GAA. The Golden Knights are rolling and should win this one going away.
Pick: Vegas Golden Knights -1.5
Los Angeles Kings -125 @ Anaheim Ducks +110 O/U: 5.5
10:00 PM EST
The two teams have split their 6-game series, and the two played in Anaheim. The Ducks have lost 8 in a row at home and average a league worst 1.73 goals per game at home this season. The Kings have not been much better, having lost 3 of their last 10 on the road, and 6 of 8 overall. I would stay away from this one, but in a coin-flip I will back the more talented team.
Pick: Los Angeles Kings -125
