NHL Betting Tips For Tuesday, October 30

Jon and DerekThere’s 11 games on a tasty-looking NHL board tonight, highlighted by a showdown between the Golden Knights and Predators in Nashville.

After a 2-0 Saturday that put us into the black for the first time this season, our 5-game win streak came to an end in painful fashion last night as the Flames scored an empty-netter with 6 seconds left to go Over their Team Total 2.5. That game was scoreless into the third period and we were ready to celebrate another winner until a desperation Leafs pass from their own end was intercepted at the Toronto blue line and deposited in the empty cage.

The good news is that bad beats generally tend to come when you were on the right side. Overall, we’re feeling pretty good about how we’re reading the league right now and are looking forward to getting a bit more aggressive when it comes to volume.

That starts tonight as we’re in action on 4 games. Those bets are listed below, along with the usual stats, info, trends, analysis and opinions on the rest of the NHL slate.

Good luck tonight!
