NHL Betting Tips For Saturday, November 11

Jon and DerekThere’s 12 games in the National Hockey League today, including a pair of early afternoon starts.

Before we get into the writeups, picks and suggestions for today’s action, we wanted to recognize that it’s Remembrance Day in Canada and Veterans Day in the United States. Getting to watch, discuss and bet hockey are just a few of the many freedoms we get to enjoy in North America because of the sacrifices of those who went before us, and we will forever be thankful.

The 3 first period plays we posted yesterday on Facebook and Twitter went 2-1, hitting the Under 1.5 in Florida/Buffalo and the Stars moneyline over the Islanders, but losing the Jets 1P moneyline against a Vegas team that had just returned from a long road trip.

There was lots to love about the NHL betting board today, and we had a difficult time limiting ourselves to 5 bets. Hopefully we picked out the right ones, and hopefully you do as well if you’re tailing any of these picks or opinions.

Good luck today!
