Montreal leads the season series 5-4 but Ottawa has been playing better of late. They are 7-2-1 in their last 10 and are giving up just 1.8 goals per game. Carey Price will not be in net for the Canadiens due to an upper body injury, and the Canadiens are 1-6 in their last 7 games backup Jake Allen has started. I will take chance on the home dogs here.

Pick: Ottawa Senators +140

Washington Capitals -125 New York Rangers +105 O/U: 5.5

7PM EST

The Rangers will look to bounce back at home after losing 3-6 on Monday to the Capitals. Both teams are banged up, with a combined 10 players on the injury report heading into Wednesday’s game. This includes two top offensive threats, Alex Ovechkin for the Capitals and Artemi Panarin for New York. The Rangers have lost three straight and will be hungry for a win, so I expect this game to be tightly contested. Back the under.

Pick: Under 5.5

Nashville Predators -175 Columbus Blue Jackets +155 O/U: 5

7PM EST

Nashville owns the advantage in the season series 6-1 and has won the last 4. Columbus has not been playing well of late, going 1-5-4 in their last ten with 1.6 goals per game. Nashville on the other hand has been scoring 3.4 over the same stretch and is 4-1 in their last 5 games. Despite the Predators potentially being without top defenseman and points-scorer Roman Josi on Wednesday, lay the juice for an easy profit.

Pick: Nashville Predators -175

Dallas Stars +150 Tampa Bay Lightning -170 O/U: 5.5

7PM EST

Dallas has now lost 4 straight games, including a 3-0 defeat in Tampa Bay a week ago. Tampa Bay is 7-2-1 in their last 10 and are only allowing 2 goals per game. Backup Curtis McElhinney will be in goal for the Lightning, so the odds are closer, but they are the much better team in this one and are 2-0 with an 8-0 scoring advantage against Dallas at home this season. Back Tampa Bay.

Pick: Tampa Bay Lightning -170

Anaheim Ducks +225 St. Louis Blues -245 O/U: 5.5

8PM EST

The Blues lead the season series 5-2 but have split the last two in St. Louis. The Blues have been mediocre at home with a 10-11-2 record this season. They have won their last three on home ice, so I expect a setback soon. St. Louis is the better team here, but Anaheim is one of those teams that can surprise you on any given night. Take a flier on the Ducks at more than two times your money.

Pick: Anaheim Ducks +225

Vegas Golden Knights -115 Minnesota Wild +100 O/U: 5.5

8PM EST

Minnesota has won the last 5 in this series and have not lost in 3 home games. Both teams have won 8 out of their last ten games and are scoring over 4 goals a game. I expect the goals to keep coming in this one, after their game on Monday ended with 11 scored. Take the over.

Pick: Over 5.5

Winnipeg Jets +105 Calgary Flames -125 O/U: 5.5

9:30 PM EST

Winnipeg has now lost 7 straight games and have failed to eclipse the 3-goal mark over that stretch. Despite that, they have a 5-3 edge in this season series. Calgary is a .500 team at home and the Jets are a more talented team, despite their recent struggles. Expect Winnipeg to return to form in what should be a competitive game.

Pick: Winnipeg Jets +105

Colorado Avalanche -260 San Jose Sharks +240 O/U: 6

9:30 PM EST

Philip Grubauer is expected to be in goal for the Avalanche in this one and is 5-1 against the Sharks this season. All but one of those wins was by at least 2 goals. Nathan MacKinnon is hot with 5 goals in his last 10 for Colorado, and the Sharks are 2-6-2 in their last ten while allowing 3.5 goals per game. The Avalanche are 7-3 in their last 10 games and should take this one going away.  

Pick: Colorado Avalanche -1.5

Los Angeles Kings +110 Arizona Coyotes -130 O/U 5.5

10:00 PM EST

Both teams are struggling, having dropped 6 of their last 10 games. The Coyotes are averaging just 2.5 goals over that span, and the Kings 2.3. The under has cashed in the last two in this series, and I expect this one to be a tightly contested battle with both teams trying to keep their slim playoff hopes alive.

Pick: Under 5.5
