NHL Betting Tips For Friday, November 23

Jon and DerekGod Bless America. Even if you’re not from the Home of the Brave, we all get to enjoy American Thanksgiving this weekend as the NHL serves up a feast of 15 games on the Friday slate – seven of which get underway in the afternoon.

Since the entire league was dark on Thursday, we’ve once again got a situation where there aren’t any teams playing back-to-backs on the Friday schedule. That means we’re able to release our notes on every game a day in advance, so we’re doing that again today.

As we did Wednesday, we’ll update this post on Friday (likely around noon eastern) with our personal picks and leans for the action. Once we do that, we’ll tweet out an update, so stay tuned on Twitter if you want to see who we’re on tomorrow.

With that, here are some stats, info, trends and analysis for each of the 30 teams that will take the ice on Friday!

NOTE: We added picks and leans to this post at 2:55 p.m. eastern.

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.
