NHL best bets today (Devils will get back on track against Panthers)

We avoided any losses with my NHL picks last night, going 2-0-1.

The Senators and Jets failed to score a single goal in the third period which cause the total to push at six, but we cashed in on the Penguins moneyline and the OVER in the Blues and Kraken game.

Let’s keep the momentum going tonight with seven games on the board to bet on.

I have my three best bets locked in, so let’s dive into them.

NHL Best Bets Record-to-Date

NHL Best Bets Today (Wednesday, December 21)

  • Devils +120 vs. Panthers
  • Avalanche -1.5 (+100) vs. Canadiens
  • Stars -145 vs. Oilers

Devils +120 vs. Panthers

After a red hot start to the season, the Devils have lost six straight games and are starting to stumble. I think we all knew they weren’t as good as they were looking at the beginning of the season, but I don’t think they’re as bad as they’ve looked in recent weeks.

Over their last 10 games, the Devils still rank third in the NHL in CORSI% while also ranking in the top half of the league in expected goals.

Florida, on the other hand, has been terrible in their own end, ranking 22nd in expected goals against and 15th in CORSI%.

I think the game should be set as a pick’em, so with the Devils being set as underdogs, I’ll hope on New Jersey.

Avalanche -1.5 (+100) vs. Canadiens

This is a tale of two teams trending in opposite directions. Despite the Avalanche missing their best two players, Gabriel Landeskog and Nathan MacKinnon, due to injury, they’ve been playing their best hockey all season as of late.

Over their last 10 games, they rank fourth in CORSI% and third in expected goals against.

Meanwhile, the Canadiens rank 27th in CORSI% and 30th in expected goals against at 3.46.

The Avs should stick it to the Habs tonight.

Stars -145 vs. Oilers

To no ones surprised, the Edmonton Oilers have been terrible defensively. They rank 21st in expected goals against over their past 10 games and 22nd in high danger scoring chances allowed.

Now, they have to face one of the better offenses in the league in the Stars, who have an expected goals per game of 3.4 over their last 10 games.

It’s a good spot to take advantage of a slumping Oilers team that’s 4-4-2 in their last 10 games. Fade Edmonton by backing Dallas as home favorites tonight.
