There are 10 games on the schedule in the NHL on Tuesday, December 7th, 2021. Let's take a look at each game and make some picks as well.
New York Islanders -135 Ottawa Senators +110 Total: 5.5
The Isles have lost 11 in a row but are on a three-game point streak. The Islanders are not scoring goals but the defense has gotten a bit sharper, so I will take the under in this contest as goals should be hard to come by from both sides.
Pick: Under 5.5
Columbus Blue Jackets +225 Toronto Maple Leafs -280 Total: 6
The Leafs are rather steep home favorites here and I think that is for good reason. The Maple Leafs' offense should be too much for the Jackets here, especially in Toronto. I will lay the puck line to make the price more bettable.
Pick: Toronto Maple Leafs -1.5
Tampa Bay Lightning -190 Montreal Canadiens +165 Total: 5.5
I think the Bolts take care of business against a Canadiens team that is just a plain mess at this point. The Lightning have dealt with their injuries well and should earn another victory on the road here.
Pick: Tampa Bay Lightning - in Regulation
Nashville Predators -115 Detroit Red Wings -105 Total: 5.5
I like the Red Wings here as the home dog. Detroit is off to a 13-9-3 start to the season and has played well, even without Bertuzzi in the lineup. On a five-game win streak, there is no reason to doubt the Wings here.
Pick: Detroit Red Wings -105
Anaheim Ducks -125 Buffalo Sabres +105 Total: 6
The last time these two teams played, the Ducks were the better team for a majority of the game despite the OT loss. I think Anaheim gets some revenge here and beats up on a Sabres team that is regressing back to form from a season ago.
Pick: Anaheim Ducks -125
Carolina Hurricanes -105 Winnipeg Jets -115 Total: 5.5
This is a game I would rather watch than bet, as we have two teams that are certainly contenders in their respective divisions. If I had to pick a side, I would take the Jets at home only having to lay -115 odds.
Pick: Winnipeg Jets -115
Florida Panthers -135 St. Louis Blues +115 Total: 6
I like the Cats on the road here to beat the Blues for the second straight game. It is tough to sweep a home-and-home, but the Panthers have the team to do so and the Blues have lost four of their last six overall.
Pick: Florida Panthers -135
New York Rangers -130 Chicago Blackhawks +110 Total: 5.5
The Blackhawks are getting excellent goaltending from Marc-Andre Fleury and the defense has held up in front of him. I like the under in this matchup as I think the first team to three goals will win this game.
Pick: Under 5.5
Minnesota Wild +105 Edmonton Oilers -125 Total: 6.5
I will take a shot with plus money and the Wild here on the road. The total is steep at 6.5 and I do expect plenty of goals, but I think the Wild have the better goaltender and defense currently, and that should lead them to victory.
Pick: Minnesota Wild +105
Calgary Flames -135 San Jose Sharks +115 Total: 5.5
To end the night, I think it is worth the +115 to take a chance with the Sharks at home. San Jose has been so-so to start the season but returning back to San Jose after a long road trip should energize this team enough to grab the victory over a tough Flames team here.
Pick: San Jose Sharks +115
