NHL Betting Tips For Sunday, December 20

jon_derek (1)We split our two NHL betting tips yesterday but hit yet another Best Bet as the Avalanche easily won in regulation, whipping the Oilers 5-1. Our loss came on the Penguins who continue to stink, losing 2-1 at home to the Canes.

We’ve identified 3 more solid NHL betting opportunities for this evening’s action. Just like yesterday, today’s writeups will be brief as I try to squeeze a little NFL watching into my day. Really looking forward to that Broncos/Steelers game (got the Broncos +7 in that one).

Odds below are at the time we made the pick. Be sure to check out our live odds page for updated odds on today’s games.

VS Pick
Game: Capitals @ Rangers
Time: 7:00PM ET
Pick: Under 5 +105 (Bodog)
The obvious pick here is Washington, since the Caps are 13-1-1 in their last 15 while the Rangers are slumping. But we think NYR will play desperate tonight, and when the Rangers play their best, it’s focusing on their defensive play. Look for a hard-fought defensive battle tonight at MSG. We can easily see a 2-1 game here.

VS Pick
Game: Sharks @ Blackhawks
Time: 7:00PM ET
Pick: Sharks +0.5 (regulation time) -125 (Pinnacle)

Sharks have turned things around on this road trip, and they’ve been better away from home this season. Chicago has been playing a lot of close games lately, needing a goal in the final minute Saturday to force OT against the Sabres and then winning in a shootout. This game has OT written all over it, and if it goes to OT (or if the Sharks win), we’ll cash this bet.
