NHL Betting Tips For Saturday, November 25

Jon and DerekThere are 11 games in the National Hockey League today, with many of the teams playing for the second consecutive night and third time in 4 days due to U.S. Thanksgiving.

We went 2-3 with our personal bets last night, winning on the Stars First Period Moneyline and the Islanders Team Total Over 2.5 but losing on the Blues/Predators Over, Penguins/Bruins Under and Avalanche/Wild Over. Colorado and Minnesota combined for 4 goals in the first 25 minutes of that game before going scoreless the rest of regulation.

We’re going with 5 bets again for today, including three more Over wagers involving either team totals or the full game. Stats, trends, info and analysis for the rest of the games is below as well.

Good luck!
