NHL Betting Tips For Monday, March 6

Jon and DerekWe took the day off yesterday from posting picks and writeups to our site, but we did suggest a couple of bets on our Twitter account that both won – Sabres First Period Moneyline +199 and Sabres First Period +0.5 -125.

We personally put half a unit on each and netted nearly +1.5 units as the Sabres jumped out to a 3-0 first period lead in Pittsburgh (then hilariously went on to lose the game.)

Saturday was a decent night, with the Best Bet on the Blackhawks First Period Moneyline +115 cashing and our picks and leans going 5-4 overall.

After struggling to build momentum in February, a month that was interrupted by the all-star break and a slew of teams on their bye week, we’re feeling back in the groove and looking forward to a strong March.

There are 4 games in the NHL tonight! We don’t love anything enough to single one game out for a Best Bet, but we will personally be playing 3 of of our 4 leans tonight (passing on the Bruins/Sabres game).

Below are stats, trends and leans on all 4 contests. Good luck!

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.
