NHL Betting Tips For Sunday, January 10

jon_derek (1)We enjoyed a 2-1 night last night as the Penguins edged the Habs and the Senators defeated the Bruins. Our loss came on the Leafs, whose strong play took a hiatus last night in a 7-0 loss at San Jose.

We’re back with 3 more for tonight. One thing we noticed about tonight’s games is that there’s a rare 4.5 over/under on the board: New Jersey at Minnesota. That’s a very tempting over play just because there’s only so many ways a game can go Under 4.5 (1-0, 2-0, 3-0, 4-0, 2-1 or 3-1 each way) but we still couldn’t stomach betting on those teams to combine for 5 goals or more.

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: Avalanche @ Blackhawks
Time: 7:00PM ET
Pick: Over 5 -122 (BetOnline)

Both teams are playing well and are putting the puck in the net too. Chicago has scored 3+ goals in each of its last 6 and the Avs have put up 4 or more in each of their last 3. It doesn’t seem like much of a stretch to expect both teams to score at least twice tonight, and that’s good enough for us.

VS Pick
Game: Red Wings @ Ducks
Time: 8:00PM ET
Pick: Ducks -135 (Pinnacle)

The Ducks are showing signs of finally living up to everyone’s expectations and Gibson is 5-1 in his last 6 starts. This is a tough spot for Detroit, their fourth straight road game with two more to go on this long trip and the second of a back-to-back. We like the Ducks to win their fifth straight meeting with the Wings.
