Wow that was kind of a boring night in the NHL with a bunch of really low scoring games. The Grand Salami bettors who went with under must have been happy – the line of 50.5 was way above the goal count last night. And for people who stayed up for the late game, we got to see first overall pick Nail Yakupov score the first goal of his career in the real only exciting game of the night, well more exciting if you are a San Jose Sharks fan.

Well January 23rd is the slowest day of the NHL since we got started, there is only 4 games on the schedule for tonight. So although the game options to bet on are limited, the predictions are not. Great games are expected with the Flames playing one of their rivals, the Canucks,Crosby and the Penguins welcome the Maple Leafs into town as well as a battle of original 6 powerhouses when the Bruins travel to New York to face the Rangers. So fewer games but plenty of betting options available so here we go:

Maple Leafs vs Penguins Betting Tips: Penguins to score first

To much firepower here and it’s near impossible to contain them. The Pittsburgh Penguins like to come at you fast and often. I think that when the Crosby welcomes the Leafs to town he always feels the pressure and loves playing with that kind of pressure. And the rest of the Penguins will follow suit in what is sure to be a high tempo game

If you want to bet that the Pittsburgh Penguins will score first go to Bet365 and bet on this unique prop that will add to whats sure to be an exciting game

Maple Leafs vs Penguins Betting Tips: Total goals 6 Over +100

In what is sure to be a high energy game where there will be goals a plenty, betting over 6 goals between the two teams is almost guaranteed. The Toronto Maple Leafs are a team that can hang with the best teams in the league and love a high scoring game. If I could I would be willing to bet that Colton Orr and Deryk Engelland might have a “discussion” at some point during this game.

5Dimes offers great betting odds and this prop is no exception. No matter the outcome of this game, fans of goals are not going to want to miss this one.

Bruins vs Rangers Betting Tips: Bruins to win

The New York Rangers are a great team on paper and as the season progresses their record will show that. But it seems as though it will take them a few more games to really hit their stride. And when your playing a Boston Bruins squad that is almost completely the same as the one that won the Cup two years ago they defiantly have chemistry on their side. Plus Tyler Seguin seems to be developing into one of the games best players. Poor Brian Burke and that terrible Phil Kessel Trade.

So in a battle between two of the oldest teams in the NHL its only fitting to place your bet at one of the oldest and most trusted Sportsbooks out there in Bodog and take advantage of their always impressive betting odds
