Some decent games with some unexpected results last night. The Habs came back to tie the game but ultimately lost in OT to the Sabres. The Jets upset the Bruins. The Blue Jackets continue to surprise people beating the Predators and extending their franchise record point streak to 11 games. The Rangers got a much needed win over the Devils and the last place Florida Panthers beat the Hurricanes but still remain in last place not only in the Eastern Conference but overall.
5 games to watch tonight. The Maple Leafs welcome the Lightning in to town as do the Oilers with the Sharks. But the game of the night has to be the battle of the 1st place overall team against the 2nd place team when the Chicago Blackhawks square off against the Anaheim Ducks. This is going to be a fantastic game between two powerhouse teams who are over 10 points ahead of the rest of the Western Conference and should be a blast to watch. The Blackhawks are without both Patrick Sharp and Marian Hossa the Ducks are missing Corey Perry and Nick Bonino but this game will still great with both teams trying to either distance themselves or close the gap in the standings.
Ok so lets get to the NHL Betting Tips for Wednesday March 20th
Lightning vs Maple Leafs Betting Tips: Lightning To Win
Will the Tampa Bay Lightning build off their big win against the Flyers on Monday? With the news that Vincent Lecavalier will miss some time this defiantly hurts the Lightnings chances. But this is a Maple Leafs team that is currently on a five-game winless skid?
So with the betting odds for a Lightning Win At 2.16 its worth betting on. This game could go a long way towards the Lightning making the Playoffs so I fully expect them to come out swinging. So head to Pinnacle Sports and bet the Lightning to win.
Wild vs Red Wings Betting Tips: Wild To Win
The Wild have really started to find some success as of late and the off season spending spree is not looking so bad after all especially with the play of Ryan Suter. Minnesota has now climbed into 3rd in the Western conference so they are running on some crazy momentum.
And that momentum should continue into tonights game. So that’s why I’m suggesting you bet on the Minnesota Wild to beat the Detroit Red Wings at JustBet where they currently have the BEST odds for this at 2.22
Sharks vs Oilers Betting Tips: Over 5 Goals
This is the third and final meeting this season between these two teams, with San Jose having won the first two games 6-3 and 3-2 in a shootout. So that’s 9 goals in the first meeting and 5 in the second so with the over / under being 5 its fairly safe to say that this game will go over. And with it being 5 goals not 5.5 at worst this ends in a push and we get our money back
So bet that this game will go over 5 goals at BetOnline and watch as this one ends with a 6 or 7 goal total.
