NHL Betting Tips For Sunday, April 3

Jon and DerekIt was a nice 2-0 day for us yesterday, including a +135 winner on the Stars. Dallas outplayed LA thoroughly and deserved the win, so it was nice to see the Stars come from behind in the 3rd period.

Our other winner was on the Red Wings, who jumped out to an early 2-0 lead and then held on for an important 3-2 win over the Leafs. Toronto gave another spirited effort, but just doesn’t have the pieces to pull out wins.

With the Bruins/Blackhawks game well underway, we only had 4 games to pick from for today’s picks. However, we’ve got action on 3 of them. If your sportsbook doesn’t offer the +0.5 in regulation bet (we use Pinnacle Sports for those), you can place the same bet by using the Double Chance (Bet365 offers it) when you take the team you’re betting on as well as the tie in regulation.

Good luck with whatever you bet tonight.

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: Wild @ Jets
Time: 8:00PM ET
Pick: Wild -145 (BetOnline)

We expect Minnesota to be hungry today after losing Thursday at home to Ottawa and Friday in Detroit. Winnipeg has lost 4 in a row, including blowing a late lead to lose to the Blackhawks in OT Friday. If this game is close in the 3rd period, we’d rather have our money on the motivated Wild than a Jets team that appears to be struggling with confidence.

Game: Stars @ Ducks
Time: 9:00PM ET
Pick: Stars +0.5 (REG) -124 (Pinnacle)

We won with Dallas yesterday in LA, and we’ll play them again today. Like we said yesterday, the Stars are one of the streakiest teams in the NHL, and they’re on a great run right now (7 wins in last 8 games). We loved how they competed against the Kings and expect them to carry some momentum into Anaheim tonight.

The Ducks are 5-2-1 in their last 8 games but their own players have admitted they’re not playing that well right now. Anaheim was so hot for so long, it’s difficult to maintain that level of excellence and intensity.

The Ducks also embarrassed the Stars a bit in their last meeting, jumping out to a 4-0 first-period lead Jan. 15 when Dallas was in a slump, and that should only help motivate the Stars this evening. Again, all Dallas has to do to cash our bet is get this game into OT, but we won’t be surprised if they win it instead.
