NHL Betting Tips For Thursday, March 17

Jon and DerekWe went 1-1 yesterday, winning with the Flames but losing on the Ducks.

Got one eye on the NCAA basketball tournament this afternoon as we have several bets on the games today. We cashed with NC Wilmington +10 against Duke earlier, and we’re also on Connecticut -3, Baylor -5 and Gonzaga pick ’em today. This should be a great tournament with the absence of a dominant team.

For tonight in the NHL, we have 2 picks. We were close to taking the Wings in Columbus and we also think the Hurricanes have a good shot at the upset in Pittsburgh. But we’re still not running that great right now and are trying to pick our spots until things get going in the right direction again.

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: Lightning @ Stars
Time: 8:30PM ET
Pick: Over 5.5 -105 (Sports Interaction)

There’s no question the Stars can score. The reason we don’t see them as a legitimate Stanley Cup contender is because they allow plenty of goals as well. Tampa’s been slumping offensively lately but this is the kind of opponent they can break out against.

When these teams meet, fireworks tend to break out. 8 of their last 9 meetings went over the total, with an average of 8 goals being scored in their last 4 matchups. We expect both teams to get at least 2 goals in this one, and wouldn’t be surprised if each scored 3.
