There are 11 games on the schedule in the NHL on Thursday, January 6th, 2022. Let's take a look at each game and make some picks as well. 

San Jose Sharks -120 Buffalo Sabres +100 Total: 6

The Sabres are going to finish near the bottom of the standings yet again this season even despite their fast start to the season, but I do think we will find some value spots with Buffalo here and there. This is an example in my eyes, getting plus money on home ice against a so-so Sharks squad.

Pick: Buffalo Sabres +100

Columbus Blue Jackets +110 New Jersey Devils -130 Total: 6

The Devils were on fire before their most recent loss to the Bruins but I think we see New Jersey bounce back from that loss and earn a comfortable victory at home against this Columbus team. The Jackets have dropped two straight and four of their last five as well. 

Pick: New Jersey Devils -130

Minnesota Wild +135 Boston Bruins -160 Total: 6

I think we have two of the better defensive teams in the league here and the total is still set at 6. I think there is some value on the under at this number, and I would not be surprised to see this total go down to 5.5 before puck drop. 

Pick: Under 6

Calgary Flames +120 Tampa Bay Lightning -140 Total: 6

It is impossible to go against the Bolts at home after their 7-2 win last time out. That was a frustrated Tampa Bay team showing why it is the defending champion, and I think we see more of the same on Thursday night. 

Pick: Tampa Bay Lightning -140

Pittsburgh Penguins -185 Philadelphia Flyers +150 Total: 6

I like the Pens to win this game but I do not like the price, so I will stick to the over in this one. I think Pittsburgh could score 5 or more goals on its own, and the Flyers' offense has shown it can be strong situationally. I like the over in this Pennsylvania rivalry. 

Pick: Over 6

Florida Panthers -120 Dallas Stars +100 Total: 6

As good as the Panthers have been this season it is never easy beating the Stars in Dallas, even in the regular season. Dallas has been too good at home for me to pass up plus money with it here. 

Pick: Dallas Stars +100

Chicago Blackhawks -160 Arizona Coyotes +135 Total: 5.5

The Coyotes are the worst team in the NHL by far, but this is a team that is still going to win some games before the season ends. Getting plus money at home against a team that is also near the basement of the NHL standings is where I like to be in an otherwise ugly game. 

Pick: Arizona Coyotes +135

Winnipeg Jets +180 Colorado Avalanche -220 Total: 6

Similar to the Penguins' game, I think the Avs win this game but I do not love the Moneyline price of -220. The Jets have been so inconsistent in their own end and I think the Avalanche pile up the goals in this one, so I like the over as well as Colorado's team total over. 

Pick: Over 6

Detroit Red Wings +120 Anaheim Ducks -140 Total: 5.5

This is a tough one as both of these teams have been rather profitable this season as dark horses. I will side with the home team in Anaheim as I think the Ducks are just the better team and get the advantage of playing at the Honda Center. 

Pick: Anaheim Ducks -140

New York Rangers +135 Vegas Golden Knights -160 Total: 6

The Rangers have been overperforming all season long in my opinion and this is a spot where I am fading them. Vegas beat NYR in a shootout at Madison Square Garden earlier this season, but I think this one ends in regulation. 

Pick: Vegas Golden Knights -160

Nashville Predators -130 Los Angeles Kings +110 Total: 5.5

The Predators are quietly a team to watch out for and I think they earn their third straight win here on the road. Both of these teams are playing well but I think Nashville is playing just a tad better. 

Pick: Nashville Predators -130
