NHL Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Nashville Predators at Colorado Avalanche

11.29.2016     09:16 AM     Alex Smith     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Alex Smith blog entry.
Nashville -135 at Colorado O/U 5
Recommendation: Nashville

Two Central Division foes face off tonight in the Mile High City as the Colorado Avalanche host the Nashville Predators. Both clubs are sitting near the bottom of the division with the home team Avs dead-last at 19 points; four points behind Nashville. The Predators however are a team that is trending upwards as of late winning seven of their last 10 contests after a slow start to the season. Veteran netminder Pekka Rinne has been hot between the pipes winning seven of his last eight starts and posting a 1.98 goals-against on the short season. Rinne also holds a 16-7-2 lifetime record versus Colorado with a 2.28 gaa and .914 save percentage. The Avalanche are last in the division for several reasons, most notably a lack of consistent offense along with allowing opponents to take a ton of shots on goal. Colorado has scored just 44 goals in 20 contests thus far which is second-worst in the NHL. Defensively, the Avs have yielded 30 or more shots in six of their last seven games overall including 40+ in three of their last four. This price is should be a lot higher based on my power ratings which Read more

NHL Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Pittsburgh Penguins at Minnesota Wild

Pittsburgh -120 at Minnesota O/U 5
Recommendation: Pittsburgh

My clients and I cashed a winning ticket on the Pittsburgh Penguins on Wednesday as they snapped a two-game losing streak in decisive fashion with a dominant 6-1 blowout over the New York Rangers. I think the Pens are worth backing once again today as they travel to Minnesota to take on the Wild in late afternoon action here on Black Friday. Pittsburgh had struggled offensively scoring two goals or less in three of its last four games prior to the outburst against the Rangers. Sidney Crosby score twice and Phil Kessel score as well to end what had been a recent offensive funk. When the big guns start finding the back of the net for the Penguins, they are a tough team to beat and I expect them to have an added bit of focus and intensity for this game. Note that Minnesota defeated the Penguins 4-2 just a couple weeks ago in Pittsburgh. Minnesota has been horrific offensively as they’ve scored a combined 12 goals in their last seven games. They are relying almost exclusively right now on their defense, penalty kill and goaltender Devan Dubnyk to win them games but shutting down the Read more

NHL Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Calgary Flames at Columbus Blue Jackets

Calgary at Columbus -165 O/U 5.5
Recommendation: Columbus -1.5 +180

The Calgary Flames continue their six-game East Coast road trip tonight against the Columbus Blue Jackets. Currently near the bottom of the Pacific Division, the Flames have won three of their last five games after losing six of their previous seven games. Their offensive production has slowed down as of late, scoring two or fewer goals in 10 of their last 12 contests. Winger Johnny Gaudreau is out indefinitely with a broken finger. Before his injury on November 15th, where he scored the Flames only goal on the power-play in a 1-0 win at Minnesota, "Johnny Hockey" was leading the club with five goals and 11 points. Another youngster has been picking up the load for Calgary in Matthew Tkachuk. The 19-year old son of former All-Star Keith Tkachuk, Matthew has five goals and four assists in his first 17 games. Columbus has been playing some very strong hockey at the moment, winning eight of its last 11 games. Goaltending and the team’s power play unit have been the catalyst for their recent success. Netminder Sergei Bobrovsky has been electric, winning nine of his last Read more

NHL Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Tampa Bay Lightning at Toronto Maple Leafs

Tampa Bay -130 at Toronto O/U 5.5
Recommendation: Over

The Toronto Maple Leafs return home tonight to host fellow Atlantic Division foe, the Tampa Bay Lightning. Toronto has been very competitive to open the year despite its 1-1-3 record. The Leafs earned five points in six games which is an improvement from their 1-7-2 start to open last season. First overall pick Auston Matthews has been on fire, scoring five goals and dishing out three assists in his first five games. He's accounted for nearly a third of the Leafs' overall scoring. Tampa Bay started the season with four straight home games (3-1). They now continue a six-game road trek after winning their opening contest 4-1 over Ottawa. The Lightning have been getting offensive contributions throughout the lineup, which is typically the norm with this club. Nine different skaters have lit the lamp in five games with center Alex Killorn leading the club with four goals. The Maple Leafs are 3-0-2 O/U thus far, while Tampa is only 2-2-1 O/U but have scored three or more goals in each game. The Bolts have won 7 Read more

NHL Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Philadelphia Flyers at Montreal Canadiens

Philadelphia at Montreal -165 O/U 5
Recommendation: Under

It's an Eastern Conference clash this evening with the Montreal Canadiens hosting the Philadelphia Flyers. The Habs are enjoying having the services of superstar goaltender Carey Price back after notably missing the bulk of last year with injuries. He was also held out for the first three contests of this season with the flu. The Former MVP has won his first two starts and Montreal is 4-0-1 to open the campaign. Philadelphia started off the season with a tough three-game road trip and had lost three of their first four games overall before getting back in the win column on Saturday with a 5-3 decision over Carolina. The Flyers have been thin on defense due to injuries suffered to Michael Del Zotto and forward Scott Laughton, who won't return for another couple of weeks, but Philly will gain the services of Radko Gudas in time for this game. The 26-year old blueliner was suspended since the preseason for a blind hit on Boston rookie Austin Czarnik. Gudas' return coincides with the suspension handed to Flyers winger Dale Weise, who is out for three games due to a charging call in their last Read more

NHL Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Colorado Avalanche at Washington Capitals

Submitted by Alex Smith blog entry.
Colorado +180 at Washington O/U 5.5
Recommendation: Colorado

The Colorado Avalanche look to stay perfect as they head to Washington to take on the Capitals. The Avs are coming off a 4-3 overtime win over defending Stanley Cup champions Pittsburgh thanks to a late goal by Gabriel Landeskog to send the contest to an extra frame, and another score to win it less than 90 seconds into OT. The Capitals have split their first two games on the year, losing to the aforementioned Penguins in a shootout and defeating the New York Islanders on Saturday in a tight 2-1 battle backed by a strong performance by goaltender Braden Holtby. The reigning Vezina Trophy winner has picked right up where he left off last year, stopping 49 of the 52 shots he's faced in his pair of starts.

Under new coach Jared Bednar, the Avalanche aren't trying to do more than they are capable of. When Patrick Roy was the bench boss, Colorado was looking to play very fast at both ends of the ice, and their defense just simply wasn't up to the task over the previous couple of seasons. Nowadays, the Avs still play up-tempo at times, but they know when to dial it back, especially Read more

NHL Gambling: Colorado Avalanche under 88.5, Carolina Hurricanes over 80.5

Submitted by Alex Smith blog entry.
Be sure to check out Alex B. Smith’s entire NHL Season Point Totals Report. It’s available here for only $59. Below are two selections that just missed the cut but worthy of a wager.

Colorado Avalanche UNDER 88.5 Points
The Patrick Roy experiment is finally over as the head coach left the club in early August. He left former teammate and GM Joe Sakic to scramble for a new hire. Sakic brought in Jared Bednar who was the bench boss for Colorado’s farm club in Cleveland that won the Calder Cup. Bednar’s fellow Lake Erie assistant Nolan Pratt will be also around as the pair already appears to be clicking well with the wealth of young talent the Avs possess. However, this squad’s defensive issues and shaky goaltending tandem of Semyon Varlamov and Calvin Pickard will make it extremely tough to top the .500 mark. I project a similar output to last year’s 82 points as the Avalanche should battle Winnipeg for the Central Division cellar.

Carolina Hurricanes OVER 80.5 Points
Once again, Read more

NHL Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Los Angeles Kings at San Jose Sharks

Los Angeles at San Jose -135 O/U 5
Recommendation: San Jose

The NHL drops the puck on the 2016-17 season tonight as defending Western Conference champs the San Jose Sharks host their hated rivals the Los Angeles Kings. The last time we saw these two clubs battle was in the first round of last year’s playoffs with San Jose cruising to a 4-1 series victory en route to their first ever Campbell Bowl Trophy and Stanley Cup Final appearance. Los Angeles is starting off the campaign a bit short handed up front. Forward Tanner Pearson is out while serving a two-game suspension for an illegal hit to the head in a preseason game, veteran winger Marian Gaborik will miss due to a foot injury, and center Nick Shore questionable after missing some exhibition games with what is believed to be a concussion. San Jose returns the bulk of its key players that led them to the finals and added a pair of solid possession forwards in David Schlemko and Mikkel Boedker. While the home team has lost nine of the last 10 meetings between these clubs, the team that lost in the Stanley Cup Final the previous season has gone 5-1 in the next season's debut over the last six Read more

NHL Handicapping: Los Angeles Kings OVER 98.5 points

Los Angeles Kings OVER 98.5 Points (-110 at Westgate SuperBook)

The Los Angeles Kings returned to the postseason before a quick first round exit at the hands of division rival San Jose. With 102 points (one of three Best Bet winners), the Kings nearly won the Pacific Division over Anaheim. But while they dominated during the first half of the campaign (25-11-2), their lack of depth on defense and inconsistent offensive productions proved to be a key weaknesses late in the year and in the playoffs. All-Star Drew Doughty (14 goals, 51 points) logged heavy minutes every night and led the league in shifts per game with 33.3 and ranked third in average time on ice with 28:01. Along with Jake Muzzin (8 goals, 40 points), LA's blue-line corps isn't much to write about. Thankfully, things are still sharp in net with Jonathan Quick (40-23-5, 2.22 GAA; .918 w/5 SO in 68 GP) carrying the bulk of the starts. At age 30, the Read more
