It’s a lighter slate of NHL games on Sunday with only five games taking place, but there is still plenty of value with these games. Let’s take a look at a free pick on each of the games . 

Anaheim Ducks at St. Louis Blues

These two offenses have been pretty good this season, especially the St. Louis Blues who are averaging 3.39 goals per game. In the last game against the Red Wings, the Blues put up six goals. The Ducks will also score two or three goals and this game is going to go over the total.

Play: Over

Nashville Predators +130 at New York Rangers -149 Total: 5.5

The New York Rangers are playing some really good hockey coming into this game having won seven of their last eight games. The only loss was against the Avalanche and the defense really struggled in that game. Outside of that game, the Rangers defense has been really good, and they are going to lock down the Predators' offense in this game. Back the Rangers on the puck line.

Play: Rangers -1.5

Florida Panthers at Colorado Avalanche

If you like high-scoring games, make sure you tune into this game. The Avs are averaging 4.37 goals while their defense is giving up 3.77 goals per game. The Avalanche’s defense has been awful this season giving up 3.41 goals per game. It wouldn’t be all that shocking if this game had nine or ten goals scored in it. Back the over.

Play: Over

Minnesota Wild at Vegas Golden Knights

At this point it’s not smart to bet against the Minnesota Wild. Heading into Saturday’s game the WIld had won eight games in a row. The offense has been elite all season averaging 3.77 goals per game which is 2nd in the NHL. Vegas has had issues with their defense all season, and they are going to struggle in this game. Back the Wild.

Play: Wild ML 

Carolina Hurricanes -130 at Vancouver Canucks +110 Total: 5.5 

The honeymoon phase is over for the Vancouver Canucks and they are going to struggle again in this game. The Canucks defense really struggled in the last game, and Carolina is going to take advantage. The Hurricanes are averaging 3.24 goals per game which is 8th in the NHL and the visiting team will get the job done. 

Play: Hurricanes ML -130
