I had only one tip yesterday and it was a loss.

I went with over 6 in the Islanders vs Avalanche game and this one stayed under when the Isles won 4-1. Not sure where the Avs offense went for this game but kudos to the Isles for holding them down.

Looking back at the games from yesterday there still isn’t anything I would have changed.

After trailing 2-0, the Ducks stormed back scoring 4 unanswered to beat the Penguins 4-2. Bobrovsky had his first shutout of the season when the Jackets beat the Knights 1-0. The Bruins beat the Canadiens 4-0 and the Sens beat the Preds 4-3 in OT.

A nice tuesday of NHL action with 11 games as we close in on the Christmas break.

Maple Leafs vs Devils Betting Tips:

The Leafs are in their worst slump of the season. They have lost 4 of their last 5 heading into this game which is the last of a 5 game road trip.

The Devils are also having some bad luck losing 11 of their last 14 games.

The Leafs are a strong team and they will want to snap this garbage play before returning home. I like them to come out and win this game.

Leafs in regulation: 1u

Red Wings vs Flyers Betting Tips:

The Flyers have been playing like shit and decided it was time to fire head coach Dave Hakstol and replace him with Scott Gordon.

Teams seem to respond to a coach’s firing by having a strong effort in their next game. The Flyers have lost 4 in a row so the time for them to snap that is now as their play has cost their coach his job.

The Wings have lost 3 in a row and have a road record of 6-7-2. When these teams play each other the Flyers seem to handle their business going 7-1-2 over their last 10 against them.

I’m a little reluctant to go with 1 unit on this one and am more comfortable with a half unit

Flyers in regulation: 0.5u

Canada: 1.90 Odds at Pinnacle Sports
USA: -115 Odds at Bovada
Everyone Else: 1.90 Odds at Pinnacle Sports

Jets vs Kings Betting Tips:

Two teams going in opposite directions here. The Jets have won 5 in a row and are 9-1 in their last 10. The Kings are in last place in the West and the league losing 4 straight and going 2-6-2 over their last 10.

It’s hard to bet against the Jets when they are playing like they are and when they get to take on a struggling team the the Kings then it seems like an easy play. Well, as easy as it can be when betting on the NHL.

 Jets in regulation: 1u

Canada: 1.95 Odds at Bet365
USA: +105 Odds at Bovada
Everyone Else: 1.95 Odds at Bet365
