Dallas Stars vs. Colorado Avalanche
NHL Betting Pick: Over 5.5 goals -110 odds (February 4th 2016)
CLICK HERE FOR JAMIE MICHAELS’ EXPERT NHL PICKS
The Dallas Stars (32-14-0-5) face off against the Colorado Avalanche (27-23-0-3) for the 3rd time this season losing the 2 previous meetings 3-6 back in October and 1-3 just before the All-Star break. The latest game was just another loss in an offensive slump leading into the break for the #2 ranked Stars in goals per game at 3.24. In the 9 games prior to the break, Dallas managed to score just 2 goals per game, but they came back strong beating the Winnipeg Jets 5-3 on Tuesday. A lot has been made of Colorado’s goalie Semyon Varlamov’s return back to the net after some legal issues, but we won’t see him tonight. He will back up Calvin Pickard until Varlamov gets back into game shape. The Avalanche are working their way out of an offensive slump as well having gone UNDER in 8 of their last 10 games and scoring an average of just 1.9 goals during that run. Defensively, both teams are allowing over 2.6 goals against per game. Both the Stars and the Avalanche rank in the top 5 in scoring averages and both teams are primed for a playoff run. I think we see them back to their early season form tonight in which we saw the OVER in 16 of 26 combined games. I anticipate a 6-4 type score and OVER the total!

Los Angeles Kings vs. San Jose Sharks
NHL Over-Under Betting Pick: Under 5 goals -110 odds (January 24th 2016)

Scott ‘The Bulldog’ Rickenbach NHL *1* Free Pick UNDER 5 goals +105 in San Jose vs Los Angeles @ 10:05 PM ET Sunday – Back to back situation for the Kings and only 1 over has resulted in the 7 prior occurrences for LA this season. Not only are the 2nd night of back to back spots tough on the Kings, this is also a very heated division rivalry and I expect both teams to bring a tight-checking game to the barn tonight. Look for a clogged up neutral zone and not a lot of good scoring chances are likely to be afforded to either team in this one. The Kings have been trending under all the way back to New Year’s Eve while the Sharks had held 5 of their past 8 opponents to 2 goals or less before giving up 3 to the Wild in their win over Minnesota yesterday. With this game being a divisional battle, and a heated rivalry, plus the fact that it is back to back for both clubs I look for a tight low-scoring game as neither team wants to push the tempo too much considering the tired legs from last night’s games. Consider a small play on the UNDER in San Jose as it is my Free Pick for Sunday. Best of luck always, Scott

Chicago Blackhawks vs. Tampa Bay Lightning
NHL Over-Under Pick: Under 5 goals -110 odds (January 21st 2016)
CLICK HERE FOR ALEX SMART’S EXPERT NHL PICKS
Two red hot teams on winning streaks go head to head tonight in Tampa Bay, as the Lightning host the Chicago Blackhawks in a rematch of lat seasons Stanley cup Play offs . The Hawks have won 12 straight and the Bolts 7 straight. Both base their successes and failures on playing top tier Defense, and tonight Im betting we see more of that same tenacious D, that has made them NHL power houses. In the L/7 meetings including one this season, a 1-0 win for the Hawks at home and the 6 tilts in last years play offs, show a total of 23 goals have been scored, for an average combined score per game of 3.28. Everything points to another physical low scoring confrontation.
Chicago goalie Corey Crawford owns a 1.88 goals-against average in winning nine consecutive starts. Tampa Bays stopper, Ben Bishop is expected to start in this key battle. The goaltender has allowed just three goals over a three-start winning streak to lower his GAA to 1.97, second in the NHL.
Nashville Predators vs. Chicago Blackhawks
Betting Pick: Blackhawks -131 odds (January 12th 2016)
CLICK HERE FOR ARI ATARI’S EXPERT NHL PICKS
Chicago is on fire and Patrick Kane is showing again why he isn’t just the best American player in the NHL, but the best player, period. Kane has racked up 12 points in his last 7 games, the guy has the ability to change the game with one shift. Marian Hossa has appeared to have found his scoring touch, picking up 2 huge goals in their last contest and still playing an all around game that earns him a permanent spot on Jonathan Toews wing. The biggest questions for Chicago this season revolved around their defensemen and depth forwards and they’ve answered the bell. Of course it gets a lot easier when your goalie (Corey Crawford) decides to silence all the haters by turning into a top 5 goalie this season.
Chicago just seems to be able to get it done. That’s not to say that Nashville can’t play; they just haven’t been playing all that well lately. Goals have always been hard to come by for the Preds, and the addition of Ryan Johansen finally gives GM David Poile the franchise center he has been looking for for nearly two decades. James Neal has one of the deadliest releases in the game and Filip Forsberg has turned in a decent year, albeit with not quite as big of an impact as his rookie campaign.
The real story for the Predators is their D-men, the emergence of Roman Josi, coupled with the steady play of Ekholm, Ellis, and Jackman has helped bail out Pekka Rinne, who at the half way mark, has turned in a pedestrian season. Opposing forwards still fear Shea Weber, but after watching Arizona rookie Anthony Duclair pull the Forsberg move out with Weber hacking his knee it looks like father time is catching up to the 10 million dollar man. The reality is that Chicago looks like a cup contender again, while Nashville is still just looking to hang tough in the toughest division in hockey. Take Chicago.

Detroit Red Wings vs. New Jersey Devils
Betting Pick: New Jersey -112 odds (January 4th 2016)
CLICK HERE FOR MIKE LUNDIN’S EXPERT NHL PICKS
The New Jersey Devils are off three consecutive wins and they’re coming into this contest looking to sweep the season-series against the Detroit Red Wings. They defeated the Red Wings no only once but twice last month, and I’m backing the Devils to get the job done tonight as well. The Devils have a red hot netminder in Cory Schneider who has posted a 2.10 GAA for the season and has allowed a total of two goals in winning his last two starts. The Red Wings had mustered only a total of four goals through three consecutive defeats before winning 4-3 at Buffalo Saturday. They’re 0-4 in their last four games following a win and 1-4 in their last five vs. Eastern Conference though, and this looks like a good spot for the Devils to keep rolling.

Carolina Hurricanes vs. Philadelphia Flyers
NHL Hockey Pick: Hurricanes +120 odds (December 15th 2015)

The Carolina Hurricanes have won four of their last five with the lone setback a 6-5 defeat at Dallas. They’re a fantastic 7-for-17 with the extra skater in those games while the Philadelphia Flyers have lost three of their last four and conceded power play goals in four of their last five. Carolina’s Jeff Skinner is on fire with six goals in his last five games while the Flyers’ Jakub Voracek has mustered just one goal all season. The Flyers are 2-8 in their last 10 home games and this is a good price we get on the visitors.

Los Angeles Kings vs. Ottawa Senators
NHL Betting Pick: Kings -119 odds (December 14th 2015)
CLICK HERE FOR ARI ATARI’S EXPERT NHL PICKS
The Kings are coming off a tough road OT loss to the lowly Sabres where they mustered a mere 21 shots on goal. While this would seem troubling the fact of the matter is the Kings have put their early season woes behind them and now sit atop the Pacific division with points in nine straight games (until this past Saturday). The Senators are a very good team, with top end offensive talent that is led by the pride of Landsbro, Sweden, Erik Karlsson. The Senators top offensive players have been playing well, with Mike Hoffman on pace to score 50 goals, the line of Hoffman, Turris, and Ryan has looked dominant. However, the Kings are rounding into the form that led them to two Stanley Cups in recent history, and the Senators goal scoring prowess can’t hide behind some ugly stats.
The Kings are 7-3 in their last ten meetings against Ottawa and are 8-3-2 overall on the road this year. While the Senators have a top five offense, (2.97 gpg) L.A. delights in shutting down potent dynamic attacks with their ability to forecheck and the tight structure that coach Darryl Sutter preaches. While all-world center Anze Kopitar hasn’t exactly been lighting the lamp as often as the team would like, his defensive prowess will shine in this game as he draws the assignment against the top unit for the Senators. Here’s another good one: Los Angeles is in the top ten in both goals allowed (2.07) and shots allowed (27.9). On top of that they lead the league in shots per game (32.6), while conversely, Ottawa gives up the most shots per game of any team in the league (33.9). Ottawa will come out fired up having lost their last two, but L.A. will suffocate and grind down a team that is too top heavy to contend with the depth and discipline that the Kings have.

Colorado Avalanche vs. New York Islanders
NHL Betting Pick: Over 5.5 goals -110 odds (November 30th 2015)
CLICK HERE FOR ARI ATARI’S EXPERT NHL PICKS
Colorado has been scoring plenty of goals of late, with Matt Duchene leading the charge with 11 goals in November. The Avs are one of the worst possession teams in the league right now, and I’m not saying it’s because of coach Partrick Roy, but let’s be honest it’s absolutely because of Patrick Roy. Both teams give up nearly 3 goals a game, with the Avs actually giving up 3.04. Goalie Seymon Varlamov has been less than stellar, with a sub .900 svp. The Islanders haven’t been ripping up the league quite like they were a year ago, their 13-9 record puts them in a middling Metropolitan position (4th). While Halak has been good this year he hasn’t been outstanding. If you watch the games or pay attention to the stats community you’ll see that the Islanders are giving up more quality scoring chances than they’re generating. Doesn’t matter who your goalies are when the other team is letting them fly from the middle of the slot. Let’s rip some goals.

Florida Panthers vs. Detroit Red Wings
NHL Betting Pick: Detroit -133 odds (November 29th 2015)
CLICK HERE FOR AL MCMORDIE’S EXPERT NHL PICKS
At 2:05 pm, our complimentary selection is on the Detroit Red Wings over the Florida Panthers. This is the only game on the NHL ledger today as the Panthers travel north to face the Red Wings for the first time this season in this matinee. And with their recently re-discovered scoring touch, the Red Wings are hoping to take a page from the local football team and do to the Panthers on this holiday weekend what the Lions did to the Philadelphia Eagles on Thanksgiving. The Wings appear to be healthy now – or at least healthier – with the returns of Centers Pavel Datsyuk and Brad Richards and the impact of having both of these leaders on the ice has been evident on the scoreboard. After an eight-game stretch from October 27 thru November 14 in which the Wings scored more than two goals on just one occasion (and went 4-4 as a result), they have since gone 4-2 and netted three or four goals in each of those four victories. So the fact that Florida has won the last four meetings here at Joe Louis arena or that the road team is 6-1 in the last seven meetings should not really be a concern this afternoon, especially since it’s the Panthers who are now in the midst of a scoring slump, going 1-3 in their last four games as a result. The Wings are 5-0 in their last five games vs. a team with a losing record. Take Detroit. As always, good luck…Al McMordie.
