San Jose Sharks vs. Winnipeg Jets

Sharks vs Jets Game Info | Updated NHL Odds
When: Monday, March 6, 2023 at 7:30 pm ET
Where: Canada Life Centre, Winnipeg, MB
TV / Streaming: ESPN

The Winnipeg Jets host the San Jose Sharks in one of six games on the NHL schedule on Monday. Winnipeg is a -229 moneyline favorite and +106 on the -1.5 puckline. The Jets should have no trouble beating the Sharks at home, and +106 is great value for them to win by two or more.

Winnipeg and San Jose haven’t played since November 11, 2021, when the Jets beat the Sharks 4-1. Winnipeg is averaging 3.05 goals per game and just 2.49 against, while San Jose gives up 3.35 goals per game and really have nothing left to play for at this point in the season. The Jets are 35-28 against the spread (ATS) this season, including 16-16 at home.

When: Monday, March 6, 2023 at 8:30 pm ET
Where: American Airlines Center, Dallas, TX
TV / Streaming: NHLPP|ESPN+

The Calgary Flames are in free fall right now with no signs of turning things around. Once considered a lock for a playoff spot, they have less than a 25 percent chance of making the postseason right now. They’ve lost five in a row, three of which have been by one goal.

Dallas is a -131 moneyline favorite, which are great odds considering the situation. Taking out overtime/shootout losses, Dallas is 17-8 at home this season, while Calgary is 12-10 on the road. The Stars will prevail on home ice tonight.

Philadelphia Flyers vs. Tampa Bay Lightning

Flyers vs Lightning Game Info | Updated NHL Odds
When: Tuesday, March 7, 2023 at 7:00 pm ET
Where: Amalie Arena, Tampa, FL
TV / Streaming: NHLPP|ESPN+

The Tampa Bay Lightning Tampa Bay Lightning are in a precarious position. Head coach Jon Cooper benched his three-star forwards – Brayden Point, Steven Stamkos, and Nikita Kucherov – for the entire third period in a loss on Saturday. Tampa responded with a 6-0 loss to the Carolina Hurricanes on Sunday and registered just four shots through the first two periods, including none in the second period. The Lightning are the first team to not register a shot in a period this season.

Tampa also lost Victor Hedman in the game against Carolina. Expect John Tortorella to have his Flyers ready to come in and further frustrate his old team. Philadelphia will be a heavy underdog as well, so there’s good value there.

Ottawa Senators vs. Seattle Kraken

Senators vs Kraken Game Info | Updated NHL Odds
When: Thursday, March 9, 2023 at 10:00 pm ET
Where: Climate Pledge Arena, Seattle, WA
TV / Streaming: NHLPP|ESPN+

It’s always a good strategy to ride hot streaks, and the Senators are one of the hottest teams in the league right now. Ottawa added defenseman Jakob Chychrun from the Arizona Coyotes at the trade deadline and have won five games in a row. They’re just three points back of the Pittsburgh Penguins for the last wild card spot in the East.

The Senators are 17-12 ATS on the road, and the Kraken are just 16-14 ATS at home. Take the Senators puckline for this one.
