I hope everyone had a great Christmas or whatever it is that you and your family celebrate.

The World Juniors got off to a great start.  Canada beat Finland 4-2.  The United States destroyed Denmark 9-0.  Sweden beat Belarus 6-1 and the Czech Republic beat Russia 5-4.

We have a nice busy night of NHL games for us with 11 games.  It will be interesting to see how teams respond to the time off.

Sabres vs Islanders Betting Tips:

The Isles can score.  They have been all season and are the 2nd higest scoring offense in the league.  Rookie Matt Barzal is starting to catch fire too.  He scored a hat trick on Saturday and has 7 points over over his last 4 games.

These teams can’t stop others teams from scoring.  The Sabres are ranked 29th allowing 3.31 GPG while the Isles are ranked in last place in the league allowing 3.50.

They played each other early in the year and it was the Isles winning 6-3.

I expect this game to be a high scoring one so I’m going with  Over 5.5 incl OT/SO

Canada: 1.87 Odds at Sports Interaction
USA: -120 Odds at Bovada
Everyone Else: 1.87 Odds at Pinnacle Sports

Red Wings vs Devils  Betting Tips:

The Wings have won only 3 times in their last 15 games and sit in 28th place in the league.  They have a bunch of work to do if they are to save their season.  I don’t think they can do it.

The Devils are riding a 4 game win streak into this game.  They are in first place in the Metro Division.  This is the 5th game in a row for New Jersey at home and when you add in the Christmas break they are well rested and rejuvenated.

Devils win in regulation

Canada: 1.95 Odds at Bet365
USA: -110 Odds at BetOnline
Everyone Else: 1.95 Odds at Bet365

(Odds correct as of 2017/12/27 10:57:46 AM EST but are subject to change.)

Predators vs Blues  Betting Tips:

This should be a great game.  The Predators are in 2nd in the Central and the Blues are in 1st.

Nashville is on a 3 game losing skid and were outscored 14-8 in those games.

The Blues picked up a win in their last game heading into the break.  But had dropped 6 of their last 7 games.

Jake Allen has been strong at home going 10-5 with a .915 save percentage.  So with him in net I am going to back them to win this game.

Blues win incl OT/SO

Canada: 1.83 Odds at Sports Interaction + $20 Free Money Line Bet
USA: -120 Odds at Bovada
Everyone Else: 1.86 Odds at Bet365
