It’s a lighter slate of NHL games on Friday but there is still plenty of value across the board with these seven games. Let’s take a look at a free pick on each of the games to make your Friday a profitable one.
New York Rangers -161 at Buffalo Sabres +140 Total: 6
This Buffalo Sabres team has been awful and there is no reason to believe they are going to magically get better in this game. The Rangers' defense has been strong this season giving up only 2.64 goals per game and their defense is going to lock down the Sabres in this one. Back the Rangers on the puck line.
Play: Rangers -1.5
Pittsburgh Penguins +115 at Washington Capitals -135 Total: 6
These are both teams who have had strong defenses. The Penguins are giving up only 2.56 goals per game while the Capitals are giving up only 2.46 goals per game. The Penguins' offense has also been inconsistent this season, and that is going to lead to this game being lower scoring. Back the under.
Nashville Predators at New Jersey Devils
The Devils have lost three of the last four games and that one win came in their last game. In three of the last four games the Predators have scored at least four games and their offense will be the difference in this game. Back the Devils.
Play: Devils ML
Detroit Red Wings at Colorado Avalanche
This is a game that could have ten goals scored in it. In six of the last seven games, the Avalanche have scored at least four goals. In three of the last four games the Avs have scored seven goals. In this game, there will be plenty of scoring by both teams, and this game is going to be a shootout. Back the over.
Florida Panthers -278 at Arizona Coyotes +240 Total: 6
The good news for the Arizona Coyotes is they can still play on their home ice, but their fans are going to see another bad loss. The Coyotes are averaging only 1.76 goals per game which is 32nd in the NHL. The Panthers are the second-ranked offense in the NHL and the Coyotes are going to have no chance to keep this game close. Back the Panthers on the puck line.
Play: Panthers -1.5
Winnipeg Jets at Vancouver Canucks
The Vancouver Canucks look like a new team with Bruce Boudreau in charge. Their defense has looked good, and even against a decent offensive team, their defense is going to lockdown. It might not be the prettiest game, but the Canucks will come away with the victory.
Play: Canucks ML
Philadelphia Flyers +195 at Vegas Golden Knights -227 Total: 5.5
I like the Vegas Golden Knights -2.5. Vegas is averaging 3.4 goals per game which is 6th best in the NHL. The Flyers offense has struggled to score all season and they are going to have some major issues keeping this game close. Back the Golden Knights -2.5.
Play: Golden Knights -2.5
