It’s a nice slate of games across the NHL on Monday with eight games taking place. Let’s take a look at a free pick on each of the games to make your Monday a profitable one.
Detroit Red Wings -135 at Buffalo Sabres +115 Total: 5.5
The Red Wings have only been favored seven times this season, and they have won six of those games. The Red Wings aren’t a very strong team, but they are still the more talented team, even on the road. Look for the Sabres defense to be a problem again, and the Red Wings will come away with the victory.
Play: Red Wings ML -135
Minnesota Wild +185 at Colorado Avalanche -225 Total: 6.5
These are two teams who can score, and they also don’t play a whole lot of defense. The Wild are averaging 3.68 goals per game while the Avalanche are averaging 4.29 goals per game. Neither of these defenses are strong, and I expect both offenses are going to run up the score.Back the over to cash.
Montreal Canadiens -103 at Arizona Coyotes -110 Total: 5.5
The Canadiens and Coyotes are the two worst teams in the NHL and there is plenty of better value across the board. These are two defenses that aren’t great, but neither of these teams can score goals either, and goals are going to be hard to come by in this game. Look for both offenses to struggle and the under will cash.
Los Angeles Kings -115 at San Jose Sharks -105 Total: 5.5
These two teams have very similar offenses, but the big difference between these two teams is the defense. The Kings are giving up only 2.53 goals per game, and they are going to shut down the Sharks offense. Back the Kings on the money line.
Play: Kings ML -115
Chicago Blackhawks -110 at Seattle Kraken -110 Total: 5.5
The Blackhawks are the top play on the board. The Blackhawks have won four games in a row including the last game where they beat the Ducks 3-0. The Kraken’s defense has been awful giving up 3.65 goals per game and the Blackhawks will run up the score. Back the Blackhawks to win this game.
Play: Blackhawks ML -110
Philadelphia Flyers +165 at New York Islanders -175 Total: 5.5
There is no doubt the Flyers have struggled., but I don’t trust the Islanders at this price, and the Flyers offer some good value. The Islanders offense is awful and in the last game against the Capitals they lost 2-0. Even against bad defenses they struggle to score, and the Flyers will find a way to score a few goals against their defense. Back the Flyers on the money line.
Play: Flyers ML +165
Nashville Predators +105 at St. Louis Blues -115 Total: 6
The Blues defense wasn’t great in the last game, but don’t let that fool you, overall they have been strong with the defense and they are going to lock down the Predators offense. The Predators are averaging 3.07 goals per game, but they will finish under that in this game. Back the Blues on the money line.
Play: Blues ML -115
Pittsburgh Penguins -107 at Vegas Golden Knights -113 Total: 6
Even on the road, the Penguins are going to find success. The Penguins are giving up only 2.51 goals per game which is 3rd best in the NHL. THe Golden Knights are going to struggle to score, and the Penguins will get the job done. Back the Penguins on the money line.
Play: Penguins ML -107
