The Thursday NHL schedule begins with the Boston Bruins listed as a big home favorite against the Buffalo Sabres. The Sabres have completely fallen apart in recent weeks, but Brian is leery of laying the big price with Boston.
The Penguins visit the Islanders in the second half of a home and home on Thursday with New York favored. Cam points out that these teams seem to alternate wins and since the Islanders took the first half, he likes the Penguins on Thursday.
The Columbus Blue Jackets are heavily favored at home against the Detroit Red Wings and Brian and Cam are passing on this game.
The Florida Panthers are big favorites at home against the Anaheim Ducks. The Ducks have been going over the total on a regular basis, but Brian thinks this game will be lower scoring.
The red-hot Carolina Hurricanes are favored at home against the slumping Philadelphia Flyers. This looks like a mismatch and Cam is on the Hurricanes in this one.
Two struggling teams meet in Nashville as the Predators host the Canucks. Vancouver has lost three straight, while Nashville has dropped five in a row. The Predators are big favorites at home in this one, but Brian and Cam like the Canucks in this one.
The struggling Calgary Flames visit the St. Louis Blues with the Blues favored at home. Cam is taking a shot on the underdog Flames.
The Colorado Avalanche visit the Minnesota Wild and the line on this game is a pick. Brian and Cam think the odds on this game are a trap and Cam is not falling into taking the Avalanche. He is making a small play on Minnesota.
The Dallas Stars are rolling and they are solid favorites at home against Winnipeg. Brian and Cam have a play on the total in this one. Listen to The Hockey Betting Podcast to get their pick.
The Tampa Bay Lightning are favored on the road at Chicago on Thursday night. Brian points out that the Lightning are on the dad’s trip and he likes Tampa in this one. Brian and Cam both like the over in this one.
The Maple Leafs will look to get a road win under their new head coach, but it may not be easy against a good Arizona team. Cam is taking Toronto in what he thinks is a great spot for the Leafs.
The Vegas Golden Knights are big favorites at home on Thursday against a San Jose team that just had their six-game winning streak snapped. Brian and Cam think the price is too high on this one, but they have a stronger opinion on the total. Listen to The Hockey Betting Podcast to get their pick.
The last game on the card has Edmonton favored at Los Angeles. Brian and Cam are a little bit leery of taking the Oilers, but they want no part of the Kings.
Brian and Cam also have some thoughts on the Friday and Saturday NHL schedule. Make sure to listen to The Hockey Betting Podcast to get their picks on Friday and Saturday’s games.
