NHL Betting Predictions for Weekend’s Best Games to Wager On

The NHL schedule for this weekend is loaded, with several exciting games slated to take place on Saturday and Sunday.

Here, we look at the three best NHL betting opportunities for the weekend in the National Hockey League.


Top NFL Betting Opportunities for Weekend’s Matches | 3 Hockey Games to Win Big


Saturday: Devils vs. Penguins

Back-to-backs are so hard to navigate in the NHL, and that will be the case on Saturday for a couple of teams, including the Pittsburgh Penguins. Pittsburgh will play for the second straight night when they host the New Jersey Devils on Saturday. They will have played the New York Islanders on Friday night, and a less than 24-hour turnaround will be tough to navigate for Pittsburgh here.

It will not help that they are playing one of the best road teams in the NHL on Saturday evening. New Jersey enters this weekend as the only team in the NHL with 20 wins on the road, and they will pose a significant threat to Pittsburgh as well. The question here will be whether the Penguins can overcome their rest disadvantage to get a big home win as they look to hold onto a Wild Card spot.


Saturday: Coyotes vs. Kings

Another interesting back-to-back spot to evaluate on Saturday will take place in Los Angeles, as the Kings host the Arizona Coyotes. The Kings are in Anaheim to face the Ducks on Friday night, and they are tasked with playing on a second straight night against the lowly Coyotes on Saturday. In this contest, it will be up to bettors to decide whether they think the Coyotes are good enough to beat a worn-down Kings squad.

Arizona has been playing a little better of late, having won two straight games entering this weekend. But they have been nothing short of dismal on the road this season, posting a record of 7-20-6 away from Arizona on the year. This game will be full of tough decisions for hockey bettors, but something has to give between the Kings and Coyotes, making it a fascinating game to wager on.


Sunday: Predators vs. Wild

Finally, we look at one of the most important games of the weekend in the NHL, as the Nashville Predators visit the Minnesota Wild. Both of these teams are in the mix for a Wild Card spot in the Western Conference, but time is running out for them to accumulate the points necessary to earn one of those spots. This game will be very telling for both teams as they try to improve their chances of making the top-eight in the West.

Minnesota has a rest advantage coming into this game, as the Predators are playing the second leg of a back-to-back. But the Wild have really struggled of late, entering the weekend having won just three of their last 10 games. The team that can overcome adversity the best here will give themselves a big leg up in the race for the Stanley Cup Playoffs.
