NHL Betting Tips For Sunday, October 30

Jon and DerekNice solid 3-1 day yesterday, with all 3 wins coming at underdog returns.

The Avalanche bounced back from Friday’s disappointing loss to beat the Coyotes; the Penguins and Flyers soared Over 5.5; and the Bruins cashed as +120 dogs in Detroit.

Our loss was on the Lightning, which couldn’t take advantage of a Devils squad playing on consecutive nights and fell 3-1 in New Jersey.

It’s an uncharacteristically busy Sunday night in the NHL with 8 games on the schedule. There aren’t any tomorrow on Halloween night.

We’re going with 3 picks tonight, though we lean very strongly to the Over 5.5 in Capitals/Flames as well. We think Calgary gives Washington a very good game tonight, especially with the Caps playing for the second straight night and at high altitude (similar thinking to our play on the Avs Friday night, even though it didn’t work out.) With both teams contributing to the scoring, we like the chance of an Over, but not quite enough to bet it.

Good luck with your bets tonight, especially if you’re tailing along 🙂

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.

Game: Flyers @ Hurricanes
Time: 5:00PM ET
Pick: Hurricanes -135 (Sports Interaction)

Flyers come in on a back-to-back and playing their 5th game in 7 nights. They also can’t be feeling too good about their last two games, falling at home to the Coyotes and then blowing an early 2-0 lead yesterday versus the Penguins. (Doesn’t it seem like the Pens come back from 2-0 to win every game?)

Their coach has publicly questioned their goaltending and Steve Mason and Michal Neuvirth both saw action yesterday. Now the Flyers face the Hurricanes coming off a nice 3-2 win over the Rangers in their home opener and with Jeff Skinner back in the lineup. The Canes have won 6 of their last 7 home games versus Philly and we like them to improve that stat tonight.

Game: Leafs @ Islanders
Time: 6:00PM ET
Pick: Leafs +0.5 (REG) -117 (Pinnacle)

The Leafs are 2-3-2-1, which doesn’t look that impressive but also means they’ve lost in regulation just 3 times in 8 outings. They gave the Habs a good run last night in Montreal (38 shots on goal) and we aren’t as concerned about the back-to-back here given how young the Leafs are and also how short the trip is from Montreal to Brooklyn.

The Islanders just haven’t been able to hit their stride yet this season, coming into this game at 3-5. Toronto has a history of playing well on the Island (5 wins in last 7 visits) and we think they give New York a tough game again tonight. By playing the +0.5 in regulation, all we need is for the Leafs to get into overtime to cash our bet, though we won’t be surprised by an upset win either.
