The Friday NHL schedule is a short one with just two games as Vegas visits Dallas, while New Jersey is at Colorado.

Thursday, December 12th, 2019 NHL Betting Odds
Florida Panthers -130, 6 vs. New York Islanders
Brian and Cam begin their analysis of Thursday’s games by taking a look at the game between the Panthers and Islanders. Florida is a slight home favourite in this one. Cam likes the Panthers in this one.
Tampa Bay Lightning -140, 6 vs. Boston Bruins
This is a very difficult spot for the Bruins as it will be a back-to-back, as they were in Washington on Wednesday night, while the Lightning were off. Tampa is listed as the slight home favourite. Despite the tough situation, Brian and Cam like the Bruins in this one.
Pittsburgh Penguins -175, 6 vs. Columbus Blue Jackets
The shutout streak for Pittsburgh’s Tristan Jarry is over so it will probably be Matt Murray back in goal for the Penguins on Thursday night. The Blue Jackets broke their losing streak with a good win over the Capitals last time out so they will come into this one feeling good.
Nashville Predators -125, 6 at Buffalo Sabres
The Predators and Sabres have been up and down this season, but each comes into this game on a two-game winning streak.
Winnipeg Jets -190, 6 at Detroit Red Wings
Nothing is going right for the Red Wings right now, as they have dropped their last 12 games. The Jets are big road favourites and it is hard to argue right now with the way Detroit is playing.
Minnesota Wild -140, 6 vs. Edmonton Oilers
The Wild and Oilers have each dropped two straight, so both teams will be looking for a good win on Thursday night. The Oilers could be a live dog in this one.
St. Louis Blues -120, 5.5 vs. Vegas Golden Knights
The Blues have dropped three straight but they still lead the Central Division, while the Golden Knights are coming off a good win as Marc-Andre Fleury was back in net. Listen to the latest edition of The Hockey Betting Podcast to get Brian and Cam’s picks for this game.
Arizona Coyotes -140, 5.5 vs. Chicago Blackhawks
The Coyotes are tied for first place in the Pacific, while the Blackhawks are last in the Central, so this price on Arizona seems short.
Calgary Flames -110, 6, vs. Toronto Maple Leafs
The Flames are on fire, having won six straight games, yet they are just a slight favourite at home on Thursday against the Leafs. Are the oddsmakers trying to tell us something? Brian and Cam both like this game over the total.
Carolina Hurricanes -125, 6 at Vancouver Canucks
The Hurricanes have won three straight and they are slight road favourites on Thursday against a Vancouver team that is 5-5 in their last ten games. Listen to the latest edition of The Hockey Betting Podcast to get Brian and Cam’s picks for this game.
Anaheim Ducks -135, 5.5 vs. Los Angeles Kings
The ugly match-up of the night has the Ducks a slight home favourite against the Kings. The two teams haven’t done much lately, and they are both well behind in the Pacific Division.
San Jose Sharks -155, 6.5 vs. New York Rangers
The late game has the Sharks listed as a home favourite against the Rangers. San Jose has been so streaky this season and right now they are on a five-game losing streak and they have an interim head coach after Pete DeBoer was fired. The Rangers are no slough, as they are 7-6-1 on the road this season. Listen to the latest edition of The Hockey Betting Podcast to get Brian and Cam’s picks for this game.
Friday, December 13th, 2019 NHL Schedule
There are just two games on the NHL schedule for Friday, with the Vegas Golden Knights visiting the Dallas Stars, while the New Jersey Devils are in Colorado to face the Avalanche. Listen to the latest edition of The Hockey Betting Podcast to get Brian and Cam’s picks for Friday.
