NHL Betting Tips For Friday, November 11

Jon and Derek

We went 1-0 yesterday with our Best Bet, as the Stars and Flames went Over 5.5, and 5-4 with the leans, including a +159 winner on the Red Wings -0.5 first period.

Incredibly, we needed an empty netter in the final minute to cash the Stars/Flames Over. The score was tied 2-2 early in the second period, but the teams combined for just 1 more goal until Antoine Roussel scored into the empty net with 52 seconds left.

Considering how well the leans have done since we started posting them Saturday (23-12), we’re sure it’s just a matter of time before our favourite bet of the day reflects similar results. Sometimes it just takes a lucky break to get the ball rolling.

There are 6 games in the NHL tonight. Below is our favourite bet of the day, followed by breakdowns and leans on the other 5.

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.
