NHL Betting Tips For Monday, October 30

Jon and DerekIt’s a rare busy Monday in the National Hockey League with 8 games on the schedule, so we’re shaking up our site schedule a bit by posting breakdowns on all games today instead of the usual Tuesday (there’s only 3 games tomorrow).

We pushed our only bet last night (Capitals First Period Moneyline +112, which was posted on Facebook and Twitter) and went 2-2 in Saturday’s action. Leans on Saturday went 5-1, and we’re going to be getting a bit more aggressive with more bets now that most teams have played 10 games or more and certain tendencies are starting to develop.

With that said, we’ve got 4 bets on the 8 games tonight. Read about them below, along with the usual stats, info, trends, analysis and opinions on every game on the NHL slate tonight.

Good luck, whether you’re tailing along or using the info to make your own picks! We won’t be back with another site post until Thursday, but will post anything we play tomorrow or Wednesday on social media.

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.
