It’s a light slate of NHL games on New Year's Eve but there is still plenty with these games to make you money. Let’s take a look at a free pick on each of the NHL games. 

Edmonton Oilers -152 at New Jersey Devils +135 Total: 6

The Oilers are the better team and even on the road, they are going to find plenty of success in this game. Edmonton is averaging 3.36 goals per game and they are going to run up the score against the terrible Devils defense. The Devils are giving up 3.35 goals per game and they are going to struggle to slow down the Oilers. Look for the Oilers to score four or five goals, and they will win this game on the puck line.

Play: Oilers -1.5

Anaheim Ducks +160 at Vegas Golden Knights -179 Total: 6

If you like high-scoring games, this is the one for you. In each of the last three games there have been at least seven goals scored in the Golden Knights game. The Golden Knights are giving up 3.061 goals per game, and they are going to struggle to slow down the Ducks in this game. Look for both teams to find offensive success. And this game is going to go over the total. 

Play: Over

New York Rangers at Tampa Bay Lightning 

The Rangers gave up four goals against the Panthers on Wednesday and they are going to struggle to get the job done again in this game. Even though the Rangers have a good defense, it hasn’t been as strong as of late, and they are going to again in this game. Even on the second night of a back to back the Lightning will win the game. 

Play: Lightning ML 

Washington Capitals -145 at Detroit Red Wings +125 Total: 5.5

The Capitals might get close to this 5.5 number by themselves. The Capitals scored five goals on Wednesday, and against the Red Wings defense, they are going to run up the score. The Red Wings offense hasn’t been great averaging 2.8 goals per game and their lack of scoring is going to let them down. Back the Capitals on the puck line. 

Play: Capitals -1.5
