We had an excellent night last night, going 3-0.

With only 4 games on the board, Scott had picks in 3 of them. We had the Penguins to win in regulation, and despite two 3rd period goals from the Rangers the Penguins ran out 5-2 winners in a big victory for them. Oilers vs Ducks was over 5.5 goals and with 5 goals in the first period alone, that was a nice and easy slam dunk.

Our other pick was the Lightning to beat the Flames, and Tampa ran out nice 2-0 winners on that one.

Lot of games on board tonights NHL, for Saturday January 4th, 2014.

Let’s get on with the NHL Betting Tips for January 4th, 2014. We tweeted and posted on Facebook an early pick, which was Bruins to win in regulation over the Jets.

Canucks vs Kings: Canucks to Win

This is based on Luongo returning tonight. 2.25 odds for the Canucks to win.

Despite being underdogs, and having lost twice to LA I like Vancouver here. LA are on a big slump at the moment, and Luongo being back will pump Vancouver up. Canucks are better on the road at home, and I like them to come out strong here and get a solid win.

Avalanche vs Sharks: Avalanche to Win

Going for the second underdog of the night. Colorado are 2.00 odds here.

San Jose are coming off that nice win over Edmonton, but they’ve struggled lately. Colorado have had a nice run at home and are looking to rediscover their form from earlier in the season.

Last time these two played was 11 days ago, where San Jose at home pipped the Avs 5-4 in a shootout. I like the Avs to pick up a big win here. Sharks have a lot of big games coming up but I think it’s going to start on a bad note, with Colorado doing the business.

Back them below:

Stars vs Red Wings: Over 5.5

These two teams lined up early November where Stars ran out 4-3 winners.

Detroit have a lot of injuries at the moment obviously, and that’s causing issues in their defense. Dallas have been in a fair amount of high scoring games. They’re also having no problems putting the puck in the back of the net.

Despite that the Red Wings are fighters and I see them pushing the Stars to the brink here. Stars to win is a good bet at 1.71 but I prefer 1.83 odds for the Over. With the flu hitting the Stars camp even if players play they may not be 100%.

Go with Over 5.5.
