NHL Betting Tips For Monday, March 7

Jon and DerekWe went 1-0 yesterday as the Blues took care of business in Minnesota, jumping out to a 3-0 lead and then holding on for a 4-2 win.

It’s easy to say after the fact, but we felt really good about that bet. The Blues were well rested and playing well, the Wild was struggling a bit and returning home for its 4th game in 6 nights, and we were getting the Blues at even odds. It was tempting to put more than 1 unit on that one, that’s for sure.

Nice that there are 7 more games tonight as the schedule balances out a bit for the next couple of weeks. We’re not huge fans of full slates Tuesdays, Thursday and Saturday, with just a handful of games on the other days.

We’re on 3 games for tonight. Good luck with whatever you play!

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.

Game: Sharks @ Flames
Time: 9:00PM ET
Pick: Flames +0.5 (REG) -118 (Pinnacle)

Not a popular pick here, we’re sure, but Calgary got a big monkey off its back Saturday with a win in Pittsburgh. The Flames should be in better spirits as they return home to host a division rival that they’ve actually fared fairly well against recently. It might surprise you to learn Calgary’s won 8 of its last 11 against the Sharks. That doesn’t necessarily mean anything for tonight, but we don’t expect the Flames to come into this one feeling overmatched.

San Jose’s cooled off a bit lately, going 4-4 in its last 8 games. Yet, they’re pretty big road favourites here (-150 range). That allows us to take the Flames +0.5 in regulation, so we’ll win if the teams are tied after 60 minutes. (If your sportsbook doesn’t offer regulation time betting, you can make a similar bet on Double Chance – when you win if the Flames win or tie in regulation.)

Game: Bruins @ Panthers
Time: 7:30PM ET
Pick: Bruins +104 (Pinnacle)

Boston’s playing pretty well, collecting points in 5 of their last 6 games and giving the league-leading Capitals a tough test Saturday night. Boston’s also playing with confidence on the road, winning 9 of its last 11 away from Boston.

The Panthers have to figure things out right now, losers of 4 of their last 5 – including a 5-1 loss last time out in Arizona. How anyone loses 5-1 to Arizona, we’re not sure, but it’s asking a lot for Florida to get their house in order 2 days later against a hungry team in the thick of a playoff race. And we can’t ignore Boston’s success in Florida over the years, 12-4 in 16 trips to Sunrise.
