NHL Picks – Week 3


Last Week: 1-1, -0.17 Units
YTD: 2-2, +0.13 Units

Since I am now writing exclusively with Editor In Leaf on the FanSided Network, I have moved my NHL picks column over to this site. I hope for this to be a weekly sports betting column where I will post my best bets from the NHL every Saturday morning for the games that day. All odds that I quote are from Bet365.

It’s been an average start to the season with a 1-1 record over each Saturday thus far, making a small profit. This week I am back with two more picks and I am looking for a clean sweep.

1) New York Rangers +105 (Moneyline) at Tampa Bay Lightning

The Rangers are off to a slow start and are extremely under valued here. On the flip side the Tampa Bay Lightning have started quick out of the gates, which is the reason that we get to take the Rangers as an underdog. The Lightning had another impressive victory last night with an 8-3 snubbing of the Winnipeg Jets. They are playing their second game of a back-to-back, so they will be the tired team and their defense should struggle with the Rangers big forward group. Take the Rangers.

2)  Carolina Hurricanes +135 (Moneyline) at Philadelphia Flyers

The Hurricanes are a team that I am very high on this season. Although they are off to a slow start, I think they will find themselves atop the Southeast Division in the near future. The Flyers on the other hand are a complete mess. Their blue line is weak and their forward group is not as deep as in years past. Both teams are coming off back to back games so fatigue will be an issue for each squad. In this situation I think we get the better team at a great price. The Hurricanes are extremely undervalued here at +135 and are worth a shot.
