January 15th 2020 NHL Schedule and Betting Odds
Montreal Canadiens -185, 6 vs. Chicago Blackhawks
Money has come in on the Canadiens in this game, as Montreal opened as a -165 favourite and the current line has the Canadiens at -185. Brian and Cam are avoiding this contest.
St. Louis Blues -175, 6 vs. Philadelphia Flyers
There has been some line movement on the Blues and the over in this game, as the opening line had St. Louis at -170 with a total of 5.5 and St. Louis is now -175 and the total is up to 6. Brian and Cam agree with the line move and they are betting this game over the total.
January 16th 2020 NHL Schedule and Betting Odds
Washington Capitals -240 vs. New Jersey Devils
This is a match-up between the best team in the Metropolitan, the Washington Capitals, against the worst team in the division, the New Jersey Devils.
New York Islanders -165 vs. New York Rangers
This is a quick rematch, as the Rangers routed the Islanders 6-2 at Long Island on Monday night. Cam is looking at taking the Islanders and the game over the total.
Boston Bruins -150 vs. Pittsburgh Penguins
The red-hot Penguins have won four straight, but they are road underdogs against the Bruins on Thursday. Cam is looking at taking the Bruins at home in this contest.
Philadelphia Flyers -165 vs. Montreal Canadiens
This is a back-to-back for both teams, as the Flyers were in St. Louis on Wednesday, while the Canadiens were home against Chicago.
Carolina Hurricanes -155 at Columbus Blue Jackets
The Blue Jackets are just two points behind the Hurricanes in the Metropolitan Division, so this is a huge game for both teams.
Florida Panthers -230 vs. Los Angeles Kings
The Panthers are big home favourites against the Kings and Florida comes in having won two straight, while the Kings have lost two in a row.
Toronto Maple Leafs -165 vs. Calgary Flames
Two teams that are in similar positions in the standings meet on Thursday night, as Toronto hosts Calgary. The Maple Leafs have 56 points, while the Flames have 55 points.
Vegas Golden Knights -165 at Ottawa Senators
The first game for the Golden Knights under new head coach Pete DeBoer will be on Thursday at Ottawa. The Senators come into this game on an 8-game losing streak. Brian and Cam are leery of taking the Golden Knights in this one and they are looking at taking the Senators.
Nashville Predators -210 vs. Anaheim Ducks
The Ducks have lost four straight and now have the worst record in the Western Conference. The Predators are listed as big home favourites in this one.
Tampa Bay Lightning -165 at Minnesota Wild
The Wild are a mess right now, having lost four in a row, while Tampa has won 9 of their last 10. This is a game that Brian and Cam are avoiding.
Dallas Stars -210 vs. Buffalo Sabres

Colorado Avalanche -195 vs. San Jose Sharks
The Avalanche have lost four in a row, but they are big favourites at home against a bad San Jose team. Cam is looking at laying the price and taking Colorado.
Vancouver Canucks -135 vs. Arizona Coyotes
The Canucks are just three points behind the Coyotes for first place in the Pacific Division, so this is a key game on Thursday night. Brian is on the Coyotes as his play of the night for Thursday and Cam is also on board.
