There are 12 games on the schedule in the NHL for Saturday, December 11th, 2021. Let's take a look at each game and make some picks as well. 

Tampa Bay Lightning -230 Ottawa Senators +185 Total: 6

The Senators' defense is a mess and I think the Lightning could get us over this total themselves. I think this game goes well over the total as Ottawa should be able to find one or two goals itself also.

Pick: Over 6

Washington Capitals -220 Buffalo Sabres +180 Total: 6

The Capitals are in a much better spot here and cannot let games like these slip away if they want to win the Metro this season. The Sabres had a great start to the season, but Buffalo is back where most people had them, near the bottom of the Eastern Conference standings. 

Pick: Washington Capitals -1.5

Montreal Canadiens +165 St. Louis Blues -195 Total: 6

The Habs are a mess but I am still not 100% on board with these St. Louis Blues this season, so I cannot lay a -195 price even at home. I will take the plus money, but this is a game I am not rushing to the window for. 

Pick: Montreal Canadiens +165

Chicago Blackhawks +205 Toronto Maple Leafs -245 Total: 6

The Blackhawks are not scoring goals and that does not bode well against a Maple Leaf's team that has no problems offensively. I think Toronto dominates this one and covers the puck line with ease. 

Pick: Toronto Maple Leafs -1.5

Anaheim Ducks +125 Pittsburgh Penguins -145 Total: 6

This should be an underrated game on the schedule as I see this one going to overtime. Getting plus money with an exciting and profitable Ducks team that has relied on its young guns is not a bad idea in my opinion. 

Pick: Anaheim Ducks +125

New Jersey Devils +140 New York Islanders -160 Total: 5.5

Just when you think the Islanders are out of their funk, they blow a 3-2 lead with seven minutes remaining in the 3rd period and allow the game-winning goal from Nashville with 11 seconds left. Until this Isles team puts together a few wins in a row (at least one at UBS Arena) they are an auto fade for me. 

Pick: New Jersey Devils +140

Philadelphia Flyers -160 Arizona Coyotes +140 Total: 6

The Coyotes may not have many chances to win games at home this season, but this is one of them. The Coyotes' defense and goaltending are much better than Philadelphia's in my opinion and Arizona should be able to score enough to steal a game from the struggling Flyers here. 

Pick: Arizona Coyotes +140

Carolina Hurricanes +105 Edmonton Oilers -125 Total: 6

This could be the game of the night as we have two Stanley Cup contenders going at it. I like the Canes getting the plus money, as the Oilers have been a bit inconsistent as of late and I would rather not lay the juice with Edmonton here. 

Pick: Carolina Hurricanes +105

Columbus Blue Jackets +135 Seattle Kraken -160 Total: 6

The Kraken are tough to face in Seattle and this is a tough ask for a Blue Jackets team that is starting to fall in the Eastern Conference standings. I think Seattle grabs the victory at home here. 

Pick: Seattle Kraken -160

Boston Bruins +115 Calgary Flames -135 Total: 5.5

I still think the Bruins have a fine chance at winning the Atlantic Division this season and I like the B's to grab another road victory here over a tough Flames team. The Bruins are a team to watch out for as we approach the new year. 

Pick: Boston Bruins +115

Minnesota Wild -150 Los Angeles Kings +130 Total: 5.5

I think Minnesota's defense will win the day here and this game will go well under the total. This total is rather low for a reason, and I think the Wild dictate the pace. 

Pick: Under 5.5

Dallas Stars -125 San Jose Sharks +105 Total: 5.5

I like the under in this game as well, for similar reasons to the game prior. Dallas is a team that I think could turn some heads as the season carries on, and that is because I think the Stars' defense and goaltending are severely underrated. This game goes well under the number, as many Stars' games have recently. 

Pick: Under 5.5
