It’s a lighter slate of NHL games on Tuesday but there is still plenty of value across the board in those three games. Let’s take a look at a free pick on each of the three games.
Philadelphia Flyers +140 at Tampa Bay Lightning -160 Total: 5.5
The Tampa Bay Lightning have been involved in some high-scoring affairs as of late. Each of the last three games has had at least seven goals scored, including Sunday’s game against the Minnesota Wild where there were a total of nine goals. The Flyers defense has been decent this season, but I just don’t see anyone slowing down the goal scoring of Tampa Bay. The Lightning’s defense also can’t be trusted, and there will be no shortage of scoring in this game. The over is 5-1 in the last six meetings between the two teams in Tampa Bay. Back the over to cash.
Edmonton Oilers -106 at Dallas Stars -114 Total: 6
The Edmonton Oilers are the better team and even on the road, they have a 5-3 record overall. The Oilers biggest strength so far this season has been their offense that is averaging 3.88 goals per game. The Dallas Stars offense also hasn’t been great this year averaging only 2.63 goals per game and there is no reason to believe their offense is going to magically be better in this game. In this game, I expect the Oilers are going to score at least three goals, and the Stars are going to have no answer. Back the Oilers to win this game on the money line.
Play: Oilers ML -106
Chicago Blackhawks +177 at Calgary Flames -213 Total: 5.5
The Chicago Blackhawks got out to a slow start to the season, but they have been playing a whole lot better as of late winning five of their last six games. The defense has been a strength of this Chicago team now and in the last game against the Vancouver Canucks they gave up zero goals. The Flames have been strong this season, but there is too much value with the Canucks to pull the upset. Back the Blackhawks on the money line.
Play: Blackhawks ML +177
