NHL Games on Monday May 10th, 2021
With 9 NHL games on Monday, May 10th, 2021, there are plenty of options for some hockey action as we head into the final stretch of the regular season. Check out our best bets below, as well as the updated betting odds.
Tampa Bay Lightning -105 Florida Panthers -105 O/U: 6
Florida has a 5-4 series lead and won the last two by 2+ goals. The Panthers have only lost 5 of 27 home games in regulation and are on a 5-game winning streak overall. The Lightning have lost 3 of their last 5 and are averaging just 2.4 goals per game over that stretch. Back Florida.
Pick: Florida Panthers -105
New Jersey Devils +120 Philadelphia Flyers -150 O/U: 6
Philadelphia has lost 2 of their last 3 games at home and are giving up 3.4 goals per game over their last 10. The Devils have won 2 of 3 games in Philadelphia this season, with the one loss coming via shootout. The Devils have covered the puck line in 5 straight games in this series.
Pick: New Jersey Devils +1.5
Edmonton Oilers -115 Montreal Canadiens +100 O/U: 6
The Canadiens have lost 3 straight road games but won the prior three games at home. Edmonton has won 7 of their last 10 but have lost 5 of 7 in this series. Montreal is due for a bounce back game after a tough road trip, and the Oilers have looked beatable against the Canucks in their last two games.
Pick: Montreal Canadiens +1.5
New York Islanders +140 Boston Bruins -170 O/U: 5.5
Boston lost their last game at home to the Rangers. They are 7-2 at home following a loss in their previous home game this season. The Islanders won the first 5 in this series, but Boston has won the lats two games by a combined 6 goals. The Islanders are only averaging 2.7 goals per game over their last 10, whereas the Bruins are averaging 3.7.
Pick: Boston Bruins -170
Carolina Hurricanes -140 Nashville Predators +110 O/U: 5.5
Nashville won the last game 3-1 on Saturday after losing the prior 6 in this series. Carolina has owned Nashville this season, and almost tied the last game up before allowing an empty net goal with a minute left to put the game away. Nashville just clinched a playoff berth with their last win, so could be do for a letdown in this one.
Pick: Carolina Hurricanes -140
Dallas Stars Chicago Blackhawks O/U:
Both teams have lost 4 of their last 5 games and have been allowing a lot of goals. The over has cashed in Dallas’s last three, and 4 of the last 5 for Chicago. The over has also hit in the last four of this series.
Vancouver Canucks +150 Winnipeg Jets -175 O/U: 5.5
The Jets are 2-8 over their last ten while averaging 2.1 goals, and the Canucks are averaging just 2.3 over that same stretch. Both teams have reached the 3 goals mark just once in their last 5 games. The under has cashed in 4 of 7 in this series.
Pick: Under 5.5
Colorado Avalanche +100 Vegas Golden Knights -110 O/U: 5.5
This is one to avoid as both teams are playing well of late and have nearly split the season series, with Vegas holding a 4-3 edge. Vegas is at home where they have a 77.7% win-rate, so it will be hard to fade them here. Vegas has also won the last two in this series. Vegas ranks third with just 2.04 goals allowed per game at home, and their potent defense should be able to slow down McKinnon and the Avalanche.
Pick: Vegas Golden Knights -110
Saint Louis Blues -140 Los Angeles Kings +110 O/U: 5.5
St Louis has lost 4 of 5 and will be without two defensemen on Monday night. Los Angeles has the 5-2 series edge and have won two straight at home against the Blues. The Kings have scored just 2.3 goals per game over their last 10 but should be able to keep this close against a fading St. Louis squad.
Pick: Los Angeles Kings +1.5
