It’s a light slate of NHL games on Tuesday with three games taking place but there is still plenty of value with the games. Let’s take a look at each of the games to make your Monday a winning one.
Boston Bruins -105 at Washington Capitals -115 Total: 5.5
The Washington Capitals are coming off a pretty bad loss. Against a banged-up Minnesota Wild team, the Capitals could only manage two goals and that led to the defeat. The Bruins lost to the Wild two games ago but they bounced back in the last game against the Tampa Bay Lightning. The offense was strong, scoring five goals and that’s all they needed to pick up a road victory. Boston is going to have a strong offense again in this game, and that will be the difference as the Bruins come away with the victory. Back the Bruins on the money line.
Play: Bruins ML
Seattle Kraken +299 at Colorado Avalanche -366 Total: 6.5
The Colorado Avalanche can score plenty of goals, but they don’t have a whole lot of interest in doing much defending. The Avs are averaging 4.32 goals per game while their defense is giving up 3.258 goals per game. The offense is ranked first in the NHL and they are going to continue to run up the score again in this game. In the last game the Toronto Maple Leafs won 5-4 and this game is going to be high scoring. Seattle is averaging 29.03 shots per game which is 3rd best in the NHL. Look for this game to have eight or nine goals scored, and the over will cash.
Play: Over 6.5
New York Rangers -110 at Los Angeles Kings -110 Total: 5.5
The Rangers and Kings both have strong defenses, and that is going to lead to this game being lower scoring. The Rangers are giving up only 2.5 goals per game while the Kings are giving up 2.63 goals per game. The Kings offense is also ranked 23rd in hockey, and that is going to lead to this game being very low-scoring. I expect a 3-1 or 3-2 type of game, and the under will cash.
