It’s a light slate of NHL games on Wednesday with only three games taking place but there is still plenty of value across the board. Let’s take a look at a free pick on each of the games.
Montreal Canadiens +271 at Boston Bruins -379 Total: 6
The Montreal Canadiens are having an awful season and away from home, they have only two wins total. The defense has been a big problem but more importantly, has been the lack of the defense. The Canadiens are averaging only 2.12 goals per game which is 32nd in the NHL. The Bruins defense has been strong all season giving up only 2.59 goals per game which is seventh best in the NHL. I don’t see the Canadiens scoring more than one goal, and the Bruins are going to only score three or four goals. This game will have a max of five goals and the under is going to cash.
Seattle Kraken +162 at Dallas Stars -195 Total: 6
The Stars record has been decent, but their stats haven’t been all that great. The Stars are averaging only 2.81 goals per game, and that means they aren’t going to be pulling away in this one. Seattle is averaging 2.79 goals per game which is 22nd in the NHL. I am not sure the Kraken are going to win this game, but they will keep it within a goal. Back the Kraken getting +1.5 goals.
Play: Kraken +1.5
Toronto Maple Leafs at Arizona Coyotes
The Maple Leafs are playing the second night of a back to back, but don’t let that scare you, they are playing an awful Arizona Coyotes team. The Coyotes are 7-26 on the money line this year, and only 14-19 on the puck line. Arizona is averaging only 2.19 goals per game which is 31st in the NHL. The Maple Leafs defense has also been strong giving up only 2.49 goals per game. The Coyotes are going to have some major issues scoring goals, and that is going to lead to the Maple Leafs cruising to a victory. Back the Maple Leafs on the puck line.
Play: Maple Leafs -1.5
