Tuesday, December 31st, 2019 New Year’s Eve NHL Betting Schedule
New York Islanders at Washington Capitals
This is a match-up between the top two teams in the Metropolitan Division, although the Capitals do have an eight-point lead over the Islanders.
Boston Bruins at New Jersey Devils
The Bruins will be listed as solid road favourites in this game against the last place team in the Metropolitan. Cam is leaning toward taking the Devils as a home dog in this game.
Anaheim Ducks at Vegas Golden Knights
The Golden Knights will be big home favourites against the Ducks in this one. This is a rematch of last week’s game that Anaheim won at home by a score of 4-3.
Toronto Maple Leafs at Minnesota Wild
The Maple Leafs have played really well of late, winning eight of their last ten, but they are coming off a loss. Brian thinks this game is a great one to take over the total.
Montreal Canadiens at Carolina Hurricanes
The Canadiens have dropped their last two games, while the Hurricanes are coming off a win. Make sure to listen to The Hockey Betting Podcast to get Brian and Cam’s picks on this game.
Tampa Bay Lightning at Buffalo Sabres
The Lightning have won three straight, and they are just a point out of a playoff spot, while the Sabres have dropped three in a row. Cam points out that the Sabres have been a team that gets pushed around and they need to start showing some fight.
Florida Panthers at Columbus Blue Jackets
The Panthers have won two straight, while the Blue Jackets have lost two in a row. Cam likes the underdog Blue Jackets at home in this one.
San Jose Sharks at Detroit Red Wings
The Sharks will be slight road favourites in a match-up between two struggling teams. This looks like a game to avoid, but Cam is looking at taking the Sharks.
Winnipeg Jets at Colorado Avalanche
The Jets have dropped three straight, while the Avalanche have lost two in a row. The Avalanche will be favoured at home, and they could be the right side in this one.
St. Louis Blues at Arizona Coyotes
The Blues look every bit like defending Stanley Cup champs, as they have won eight in a row, while the Coyotes have dropped three straight. Make sure to listen to The Hockey Betting Podcast to get Brian and Cam’s thoughts on this game.
Chicago Blackhawks at Calgary Flames
The Blackhawks have won two in a row, and they are now just six points out of a playoff spot. Calgary is very much in the mix in a crowded Pacific Division, with the top five teams separated by four points.
Philadelphia Flyers at Los Angeles Kings
The Kings have played a little better, but they will still be home dogs in this game against the Flyers. Cam thinks the Flyers are overrated, but it is still hard to take the Kings.
New York Rangers at Edmonton Oilers
The last game on Tuesday has the Rangers visiting the Oilers. Edmonton has lost two straight, but they will still be home favourites against New York. Cam is leery of laying any type of a price with the Oilers.
Wednesday, January 1st, 2020 New Year’s Day NHL Schedule
