Hope everyone affected by the winter storm in the States stays safe! It’s the perfect day to hide under a blanket in your basement, drink beer and watch hockey.

We’ve got a loaded card of games tonight and looking forward to them.

An interesting one last night with the Blackhawks – fresh off their winning streak being ended – snapping the Panthers losing streak as Florida went to town on Chicago. Will be interesting to see how both teams react after that.

I did one of those escape rooms last night. If you’ve never been – man are they fun. Although it was tough having to leave my phone outside. Some of us have to check NHL scores FFS.

Let’s get to the tips today:

Canadiens vs Leafs Betting Tips:

Even with Price in net, we often look at the over in this one. With the way the Habs are at the moment? Man – this promises to be an interesting game.

Both teams have offensive problems at the moment which is concerning – but this is one of those games where a lot of the form goes out of the window and it’s all about this particular game and winning it. Stats don’t matter as much in games like this.

Over 5 goals.

Canada: 1.77 Odds at Sports Interaction.
USA: -130 Odds at BetOnline.
Everyone Else: 1.77 Odds at William Hill.

Stars vs Avalanche Betting Tips:

You’ve got two offenses here that can always kick off – and these two have had high scoring games in the past. Stars are 3.48 for goals in a game at home, and the Avs are 2.63

Stars didn’t have the best road trip but are back home now and looking good. We’ll take Stars in regulation.

Canada: 1.90 Odds at 888 Sports.
USA: -125 Odds at BetOnline.
Everyone Else: 1.90 Odds at 888 Sports.

Islanders vs Flyers Betting Tips:

Griess in net for the Islanders. He’s been fairly leaky whether they win or lose. Flyers have managed to get their offense clicking the last 2 games but still conceding.

Hopefully a nice sloppy game with a lot of goals.

Over 5 Goals.

(Game postponed)

Devils vs Jets Betting Tips:

The odds for this one were a surprise to me – and I think there’s just too much value on this one – have to go with a Devils win.

Devils are on a nice little run – more importantly they’re playing some good hockey. Their road form isn’t great in terms of scoring goals – but they still have a solid 13-9-2 away record. They won’t win in dominant fashion but it should hopefully be a nice tight win.

The Jets have lost two straight at home and it’s tough to see them losing three. They were in a similar circumstance just over a week ago and we saw a fighting performance against the Predators.

I’ve actually chickened out of this one after writing about it – one of those things where I felt good about the Devils but as the day went on – I’ve changed my mind and no longer want to bet. A lot of that is just it’s hard to see the Jets losing at home.

But hey I wrote it up so figure I’ll post it.

    NJ/Win
    Both teams have solid goaltending but I like Jersey’s chances to sneak one by the Jets on their home turf; Jersey has 12 GF & 3GA on this 3 game winning streak: Can you believe it? 12 goals in 3 games!
    Injuries to Scheifele 23pts & Stafford 24pts (plays an avrg. 18.5min per game) have had a huge impact on their offense; They’re 9GF & 14GA in last 5gms & scored 1 goal 4x in 4/5 gms; Won’t help the Jets offense when Jersey is known for blocking lots of shots either;
    Good odds at +115 for the win.

    OHL Win/ Flin
    The stats favour Windsor in this one; Windsor is 12-8-1 on the road & 7-3-0 last 10; they’re PP is 23% & PK is 80%; Flint is 7-8-3 at home & 0-8-2 last 10; their PP is 12% & PK is 77%;
    *Flint’s 1 win in this series was 4-3 but Windsor has won 3/4 & beat Flint 5-3 last Th, 6-2 & 3-0 so picking -1.5 (even) isn’t a stretch; Good luck tonight!

    Very interesting night coming up.. Other than Pittsburgh who already won and Boston, i don’t see a single home regulation win happening. That’s 8/10 games ending in road win or OT.
    Odds for the most part have significantly dropped, Ducks had 3 at some point (now around 2.5) and Bolts have gone down too. But the Devils ? I have no idea why but they’ve gone from 3 to 3.3 during the evening, makes me wonder what they know that i don’t.
    Anyway, i see the Ducks, Devils and Bolts as very good options.
    Like me some OT’s as well, Wild-Sharks, Maple Leafs-Canadiens, Stars-Avalanche and Oilers-Preds.
    I would stay away from the Stars, even if i find OT the most likely choice, i guess they could win but their odds are terrible for a team that have lost 7 games in a row vs Colorado, just had a losing streak meanwhile the Avs are playing really well.
    Good luck !
