NHL best bets today (Penguins will snap Rangers win streak)

Getting aggressive with my picks last night paid off. I went 2-1 with the plus-money plays for a solid profit, and now we have some momentum as the week marches on.

There are eight games to choose from on the NHL slate tonight, and my best bets including a moneyline favorite and two OVERs.

So, without delaying any more, let’s dive into them.

NHL Best Bets Record-to-Date

NHL Best Bets Today (Tuesday, December 20th)

  • Penguins -135 vs. Rangers
  • Senators/Jets OVER 6 (-115)
  • Blues/Kraken OVER 6 (-118)

Penguins -135 vs. Rangers

New York Rangers @ Pittsburgh Penguins | Current Best Odds


New York Rangers
Pittsburgh Penguins

The Rangers have won seven straight games, but I think that ends tonight in Pittsburgh. The Rangers have scored 3.82 goals per game over their last 10, but that’s way more than their expected goals per game of 2.67. Those types of numbers are almost impossible to sustain, especially now that they are facing a Penguins team that has allowed only 2.29 goals per game over the same stretch.

Tristan Jarry will likely get the start in net for the Penguins tonight and he’s been the best goaltender in the NHL this month. In six starts in December, he has a stunning 2.00 goals against average and .939 save percentage.

Despite the recent wins for the Rangers, Pittsburgh is a fantastic bet tonight.

Senators/Jets OVER 6 (-115)

Ottawa Senators @ Winnipeg Jets | Current Best Odds


Ottawa Senators
Winnipeg Jets

The Ottawa Senators and Winnipeg Jets have been amongst the best offenses in the NHL over the last 10 games. Heading into tonight, they rank first and fourth in expected goals for per 60 minutes.

In the same breath, they haven’t been strong defensively, both ranking in the bottom half of the league in expected goals against over the same stretch.

With the total set at six, now is a good time to bet on an high-scoring affair.

Blues/Kraken OVER 6 (-118)

St. Louis Blues @ Seattle Kraken | Current Best Odds


St. Louis Blues
Seattle Kraken

Both the St. Louis Blues and Seattle Kraken have done a great job of scoring in recent weeks, but a terrible job of stopping the other team from doing so. Heading into their Western Conference battle tonight, they rank fifth and ninth in shooting percentage over their last 10 games, while also ranking 25th and 32nd in save percentage.

Scoring on a high percentage of your shots, but allowing your opponent to do the same, tends to lend itself to an OVER bet, so that’s exactly what we’re wagering on tonight.
