NHL Best Bets Today: Devils Will Prove Dominance against Rangers

A 3-0 Sunday sweep in the NHL gives us some momentum heading into the new week!

We thankfully have a bit of a heavier slate than we usually get on Monday, with six different games to choose from, including a Metropolitan battle between the New Jersey Devils and New York Rangers.

Let’s not waste any more time. Here are my top three hockey bets for Monday night’s slate.

NHL Best Bets Today (Monday, December 12)

  • Penguins -128 vs. Stars
  • Flames -1.5 (+118) vs. Canadiens
  • Devils -106 vs. Rangers

Penguins -128 vs. Stars

The Penguins and the Stars have been two of the better offensive teams over the last 10 games, ranking in the top 10 in expected goals per 60 minutes. The advantage the Penguins have, is they have a defense to go along with it.

Their goaltender, Tristan Jarry, has also had a strong start to his 2022-23 campaign, sporting a .919 save percentage through his first 18 starts. I’ll back Pittsburgh to get the job done as home favorites tonight.

Flames -1.5 (+118) vs. Canadiens

I generally don’t like betting on puck lines, but I can’t resist doing it in a game between two teams trending in the opposite directions. Over their last 10 games, the Flames are 7th in CORSI% and the Canadiens are down at 26th.

Montreal has also been horrible defensively, ranking 30th in expected goals against. Calgary should be well equipped to dominant a slumping Canadiens squad.

Devils -106 vs. Rangers

The game of the night is the Metropolitan battle between the New Jersey Devils and New York Rangers. The Devils are 11-0 in their last 11 road games, and I expect that trend to continue tonight at Madison Square Garden.

We’re starting to see how the Rangers truly deserve to be evaluated now that their goaltender, Igor Shesterkin, isn’t a metaphorical brick wall in net like he was last season. They rank 21st in expected goals against over their last 10 games and Shesterkin isn’t able to save them from that.

The Devils haven’t been as dominant as they were early in the season, but their underlying numbers are still better than the Rangers over their last 10 games. I’ll back New Jersey in this spot.
