It’s a nice slate of NHL games on Friday with eight games taking place and there is plenty of value across the board. Let’s take a look at a free pick on each of the games to make your night a profitable one.
New York Rangers +140 at Carolina Hurricanes -160 Total: 5.5
The Rangers had quite the comeback against the Toronto Maple Leafs in their last game and they are going to get the job done again in this game. Even as underdogs this season they have a winning record and they are going to find success again in this game. The Rangers defense will make life tough on the Hurricanes and that will be enough to get the job done. Back the Rangers.
Play: Rangers ML +140
Pittsburgh Penguins at Colombus Blue Jackets
The Penguins have one of the best defenses in the league while the Blue Jackets have one of the worst. I expect the Penguins are going to score three or four goals and the Blue Jackets are going to have no answer. Back the Penguins on the puck line.
Play: Penguins -1.5
Arizona Coyotes +217 at New York Islanders -262 Total: 5.5
The Coyotes have no doubt been awful, but the Islanders aren’t that much better. The Islanders are averaging only 2.31 goals per game and with that type of offense, they aren’t going to be able to pull away from the Coyotes. Arizona might not win the game, but they will cover the puck line.
Play: Coyotes +1.5
Dallas Stars at Detroit Red Wings
The Dallas Stars and Detroit Red Wings are both teams that really struggle to score. The Stars are averaging only 2.77 goals per game while the Red Wings are averaging 2.68 goals per game. Look for low scoring chances for both teams and that will lead to this game staying under the total.
Florida Panthers at Vancouver Canucks
The Panthers are playing on the second night of a back to back and that is going to lead to the defense having even more issues. On Tuesday the Panthers gave up five goals to the Flames, and there will be some trouble in this game. Look for the Canucks to get the job done on the money line.
Play: Canucks ML
Minnesota Wild -144 at Chicago Blackhawks +125 Total: 5.5
If this play stays around -144 for the Minnesota Wild, this is the best play on the board. The Wild’s offense is elite, averaging 3.657 goals which is 3rd best in the NHL. The Wild will score four or five goals by themselves in this game. Back the WIld on the money line.
Play: Wild ML
St. Louis Blues at Seattle Kraken
The Blues defense hasn’t been as good coming into this game, and they are going to have issues defending coming into this game. The Kraken’s offense hasn’t been elite but they were able to score three goals in the last game. Look for both teams to reach that three goal number and the over will cash.
Tampa Bay Lightning -220 at Anaheim Ducks +190 Total: 6
The Lightning have won four games in a row and each of those games have been on the puck line. In the last game against the Kings the Lightning put up six goals, and their offensive success is going to be the difference in this game. Back the Lightning on the puck line.
Play: Lightning -1.5
