NHL Games on Sunday May 23rd, 2021
With the NHL playoffs in full swing, we will look at the 4 games on Sunday, May 23rd, 2021. Check out our best picks below, as well as the updated betting odds.
Carolina Hurricanes -135 Nashville Predators +105 O/U: 5.5
2:30 PM EST
Nashville was able to scratch out a win in double-OT in the previous game and will look to tie up the series at 2 in this one. Both teams average 3 goals per game over their last 10, while Nashville allows 2.4 and Carolina allows 2.3. The under has cashed in 5 of the last 7 in this series. Expect a much slower pace in this one after their last time needed two extra periods.
Pick: Under 5.5
Colorado Avalanche -220 St. Louis Blues +180 O/U: 5.5
This series has not been competitive, with Colorado winning the first three by an average of 3.33 goals per game. The Avalanche have now won 8 straight dating back to the regular season. St. Louis appears to be losing hope, getting outshot by the Avalanche 50-23 in their last game. I don’t see any reason to back the home team here; Colorado should cruise to another easy win and advance to the second round.
Pick: Colorado Avalanche -1.5
Boston Bruins -135 Washington Capitals +105 O/U: 5.5
Boston has now taken control of the series, holding a 3-1 lead heading into this game. The previous 3 games had been one goal games, but Boston was able to out-shoot Washington 37-20 last time out, leading to a 4-1 victory. Washington has been slumping, averaging just 2.5 goals per game over their last ten, compared to 3.36 per game throughout the season. Boston is the better team right now; look for them to wrap it up in this game.
Pick: Boston Bruins -135
Edmonton Oilers -125 Winnipeg Jets +100 O/U: 5.5
Winnipeg has allowed just 1.7 goals per game over their last 10, and have limited a potent Oilers offense to just 1 goal in the first two games of this series. The Jets have only averaged 2.89 goals per game at home this season. Despite losing the first two games, Edmonton has outshot the Jets in both games, and should be able to find the net in what is a must win game. Give me the Oilers to keep their hopes alive with a win in Winnipeg.
Pick: Edmonton Oilers -125
