It’s a nice slate of NHL games on Saturday with 11 games taking place and there is plenty of value across the board with these plays. Let’s take a look at a free pick on each of the games to make your Saturday a winning one. 

Anaheim Ducks -115 at Ottawa Senators -105 Total: 5.5

The Anaheim Ducks haven’t been exactly strong at home, but the Ottawa Senators have a losing record at home, and they are going to struggle again in this game. The Ducks scored five goals in the last game against the Montreal Canadiens and they are going to run up the score again in this game. Back the Ducks on the money line.

Play: Ducks ML -115

Los Angeles Kings -162 at Philadelphia Flyers +143 Total: 5.5

The Flyers have lost 13 games in a row and there is no reason to believe it’s going to be any different in this game. In the last game against the Islanders, they scored three goals but the defense gave up four goals and that led to the loss. The Kings are a strong defensive team, and they are going to win this game. 

Play: Kings ML -162

Seattle Kraken +157 at New York Islanders -179 Total: 5.5

The Seattle Kraken and New York Islanders are both bad offensive teams. The Kraken are averaging only 2.63 goals per game while the Islanders are averaging only 2.36 goals per game. Look for both offenses to struggle, and this game is going to stay under the total. 

Play: Under

Winnipeg Jets +150 at St. Louis Blues -170 Total: 5.5

The St. Louis Blues beat the Calgary Flames 5-1 in the last game and they are going to run up the score again in this game. The Blues are averaging 3.48 goals per game and the Jets are going to have no answer. Back the Blues on the puck line. 

Play: Blues -1.5

San Jose Sharks +238 at Florida Panthers -288 Total: 6.5

The Panthers have beaten up on most everyone they have played this season, and it’s going to be no different against the Sharks. Florida is averaging 4.023 goals per game and they were able to beat Vegas 4-1 in the last game. Florida will score four or five goals and that will be enough to win on the puck line. 

Play: Panthers -1.5

Toronto Maple Leafs at Detroit Red Wings

The Red Wings are a different team at home, but they are going to struggle to score in this game because they are on the second night of a back to back. The Maple Leafs are giving up only 2.61 goals per game and they will win this game on the money line.

Play: Maple Leafs 

Edmonton Oilers -208 at Montreal Canadiens +175 Total: 6.5

The Canadiens defense is awful, and it’s going to be an issue again in this game. In the last game the Canadiens gave up five goals to the Anaheim Ducks, and they are going to get beaten up again in this game. The Canadiens offense also managed to score four goals in the last game. I expect both offenses are going to find success, and the over is going to cash. 

Play: Over

Vegas Golden Knights +140 at Tampa Bay Lightning -161 Total: 6

I think the Golden Knights at plus money. In terms of stats these two teams are very similar and in the Lightning’s last game they almost let the Devils pull the upset. The Golden Knights are averaging 3.34 goals per game and that offense will be the difference as Vegas pulls off the upset.

Play: Vegas ML +140

Buffalo Sabres at Arizona Coyotes

The Sabres and Coyotes are both terrible offenses, and I expect goals are going to be hard to come by. The Sabres are ranked 25th in hockey while the Coyotes are ranked 31st in hockey. Look both teams to struggle to get good scoring chances and the under will cash.

Play: Under

New Jersey Devils +255 at Carolina Hurricanes -310 Total: 6.5

The top play on the entire board might be this total. The Hurricanes might score five goals in this game, but I don’t see any way the Devils score more than a goal. The Hurricanes are giving up only 2.4 goals per game and the Devils are going to have issues scoring any goals. Back the under.

Play: Under

Vancouver Canucks +160 at Calgary Flames -192 Total: 5.5

The Flames are the better team and this is too good of a price for them. The Flames offense is ranked 10th in the NHL and they are going to run up the score with ease. The Canucks are averaging only 2.48 goals per game and their lack of scoring is going to let them down. Back the Flames on the puck line. 

Play: Flames -1.5
