NHL Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Minnesota Wild at Toronto Maple Leafs

Minnesota at Toronto -115 O/U 5.5
Recommendation: Toronto

The Minnesota Wild wrap up a five-game road trip tonight as they head into Toronto to hook up with the Maple Leafs. Both clubs have been trending downward as of late with the Leafs losing their last two game as part of a quick three-game road swing. Expanding even further, Toronto has now dropped five of their last its last contests overall. The Wild have lost four of their last five road games with the lone victory coming in a 2-1 overtime decision at Edmonton. Minnesota's inconsistent special teams has once again been on display during this trip with their penalty-killing unit yielding four goals while being held scoreless on the man-advantage. This after they netted six power play goals over their previous four games. While Toronto has lost five consecutive meetings in the series, including a tight 3-2 loss in St. Paul back on October 20, the Leafs have been stout at home with wins in eight of their 11 contests at the Air Canada Centre this season. In addition, Toronto has cashed in six of their last eight games as a favorite while Minnesota is just 2-5 as an underdog. Price is right to Read more

NHL Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Montreal Canadiens at San Jose Sharks

Montreal at San Jose -135 O/U 5
Recommendation: San Jose

The Montreal Canadiens have made an annual habit of great early season starts but then regress some once December hits. I think they may follow a similar pattern this season with a very difficult West Coast trip currently taking place. It started on Tuesday with a tough 2-1 loss to the Ducks. Montreal has to rely on strong defense and the tremendous goaltending by star Carey Price to win games but this squad is developing some bad habits in terms of allowing too many quality chances and shots. They’ve allowed 30+ shots on goal in three of their last four games and it’s tough to win hockey games when the opposition is shooting that much rubber at the net. And Montreal’s usually strong penalty killing unit has struggled more of late allowing a power play goal in three of their last five games. San Jose enters this game on a roll winning five of six including victories against quality foes such as Chicago and Los Angeles. The Sharks have seemingly rectified their home ice struggles from last season with an 8-3 mark entering tonight’s game. The Sharks are getting strong Read more

NHL Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Nashville Predators at Colorado Avalanche

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

Edmonton +125 at Anaheim O/U 5
Recommendation: Edmonton

Pacific Division foes clash in Orange County tonight as the Anaheim Ducks host the Edmonton Oilers. The Ducks return home from a brief three-game road trip where they went 1-2. They now open a five-game homestand at the Honda Center where they’ve won four of their last six. Anaheim's core trio of veteran forwards Corey Perry, Ryan Getzlaf and Ryan Kesler have combined for 11 goals and 27 assist thus far on the year. The team however checks in at just below league average with 2.56 gpg which ranks 18th in the NHL. Edmonton is looking to recapture the energy it had early in the season as they enter this contest on a three-game skid. Despite the hiccup, the Oilers currently sit atop the Pacific Division with 19 points. Superstar Connor McDavid has been electric in creating scoring chances for his teammates. His league-leading 14 assists have made linemates Jordan Eberle (5 goals) and former Duck Patrick Maroon (6 goals) feared threats while third liners Milan Lucic and Tyler Pltlick have combined for 10 goals and 5 assists. Anaheim has won eight of the last 10 meetings but coming off a Read more

Nashville at Colorado -110 O/U 5.5
Recommendation: Over

Two Central Division foes clash in the Mile High City tonight as the Colorado Avalanche host the Nashville Predators. These two clubs are currently headed opposite directions with Nashville, picked by some as a dark horse to win this division, currently in last place with a 2-5-1 record while Colorado, under the leadership of new coach Jared Bednar, is hanging around 4th place with 8 points at 4-3. The Avalanche open up a four-game stretch versus division opponents starting with this evening's contest. Center Matt Duchene leads the club with five goals and a pair of assists over seven games while defensemen Tyson Barrie and Patrick Wiercioch each have four assists, tied for second behind forward Nathan MacKinnon who has five. In goal, Semyon Varlamov has lost three of his last four starts but has a respectable 2.82 GAA and .909 save percentage. Nashville is struggling on the defensive end with goaltender Pekka Rinne allowing 18 goals in his six starts (1-4-1). The Preds' penalty killing unit has also been poor, yielding nine goals which ranks third worst in the league. On the power play, 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
