NHL Betting Tips For Tuesday, March 22

Jon and DerekWe went 1-0 yesterday, finally catching a few breaks as the Rangers and Panthers went Over 5 with a pair of goals in the final minute.

Florida scored on a 6-on-4 with the goalie pulled and 37 seconds left in regulation to make the score 3-2, but New York responded with an empty-netter right after that to take a 4-2 lead and send the game Over.

It’s hard to say the Over 5 was the right side, but we’ve lost our share of right sides lately and will gladly take it. Besides, Florida had a goal earlier in the game waved off due to a supposed high stick that didn’t look that way on replay but was ruled inconclusive, and there were a couple goal posts hit during the game as well.

On to tonight, where there is a full board of games scheduled. We have strong leans on the Coyotes, Sabres and the Ducks/Canadiens Under, but are going with just 2 picks today.

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: Canucks @ Jets
Time: 8:00PM ET
Pick: Under 5.5 -130 (BetOnline)

Vancouver’s the lowest-scoring team in the West and averaging just over 2 goals per game in its last 22. The Canucks have been blanked in their last 2 games. We don’t think we should ever see a 5.5 total in a Canucks game. The numbers back us up, with Vancouver going Under the total in 17 of the 23 games when their total has been set at 5.5.

Winnipeg’s not a whole lot better offensively right now, collecting 3 goals in its last 3 contests. The Jets lit up Vancouver for 5 goals last week but we think that will only motivate the Canucks to play better defence, especially since they gave up 50 shots Saturday against St. Louis.

The injury reports for these 2 teams are a mile long. There hasn’t been a lot of life in either squad lately, and they just seem to be playing out the string. With 2 struggling power plays (Vancouver’s 0 for 23, and Winnipeg’s 1 for its last 28), we don’t see where the goals come from tonight.
