Top NHL Betting Picks Of The Week (Dec. 28th – Dec. 31st)
Wednesday, December 28, 2016Carolina at Pittsburgh
The Carolina Hurricanes (15-11-7) will have their hands full trying to get past the defending champion Pittsburgh Penguins (22-8-5) that has picked up right where they left off last season. Simply put, I like Sidney Crosby and the Pens to get the win – by two goals at the very least!
Pick: Pittsburgh 4 Carolina 2
Montreal at Tampa Bay
The Tampa Bay Lightning (17-15-3) may be playing at home in this match, but the red-hot Montreal Canadiens (21-9-4) are the easy pick to get the road win after dropping two straight at the time of this writing.
Thursday, December 29, 2016Boston at Buffalo
The Buffalo Sabres (12-13-8) haven’t been awful, but they also haven’t been able to put opponents away during the handful of chances they’ve had in the early going this season. Boston (18-14-4) has the look of a legitimate Stanley Cup contender right now, making the Bruins the pick to get the one-goal road win!
Pick: Boston 3 Buffalo 2
Friday, December 30, 2016Nashville at St. Louis
Nashville (15-13-5) has been awful in posting a 5-9-2 record on the road and St. Louis (18-12-5) has been rock-solid in going 13-2-4 at home. The Blues will get past the Predators in a one-goal thriller.
Pick: St. Louis 4 Nashville 3
Philadelphia at San Jose
Philadelphia (20-12-4) has played phenomenal hockey to start the season and have compiled an encouraging 8-7 record on the road this season. Still, San Jose (21-12-1) has also been impressive this season and tough to beat at home where they’ve gone 12-4. Still, I like the Flyers to get the road upset in a tightly contested affair.
Pick: Philadelphia 4 San Jose3
Saturday, December 31, 2016Florida at Dallas
Florida (15-14-6) has been solid, but not super impressive this season, even though the Panthers have racked up a respectable 6-8-5 record on the road at the time of this writing. Nevertheless, the Dallas Stars (14-14-7) are the pick to win and cash in at home where they’ve gone 10-5-3 so far this season. Dallas wins by a goal at home.
Pick: Dallas 3 Florida 2
