NHL Betting Tips For Monday, November 5

Jon and DerekIt’s a five-game card tonight in the National Hockey League, with four of them getting underway at 7 p.m. eastern and the other at 9 p.m.

We’re back in action tonight after posting possibly the sharpest card in our site’s three-year history on Saturday night. Bets went 3-0 for 3.2 units (highlighted by the Flyers First Period Moneyline +138), while leans went a perfect 5-0 as well. It was frustrating to pass up on a few potential winners, but it was also a really good sign that we’re starting to read the board pretty well now that the season is a month old.

For tonight, we’ve got plays on three of the five games, including continuing to fade the Capitals’ defensive play. We’ve cashed in on Washington’s struggles in its own end a few times already this year (including Dallas +0.5 Saturday night and an Over play Thursday in Montreal), and we’re going to look to continue to ride that horse until the Caps figure out a way to keep the puck out of their own net again.

Good luck if you’re tailing along, and we’ll be back again tomorrow!
