NHL Betting Tips For Thursday, November 30

Jon and DerekThere are 7 games tonight in the National Hockey League.

After treading water throughout most of November, we’ve heated back up over the last couple days. Tuesday’s picks went 3-1, followed by a 2-0 night yesterday, and our leans have gone 4-1 during that time as well.

Overall on the year, we’re back near the +7 unit mark that we reached a couple of weeks into the season before regressing a bit, and we’re +2.2 units for November after turning a 4-unit profit in October.

We’ve got action on 2 games tonight, and both of them are first period moneyline plays. There are also leans on 4 of the other 5 games on the board that you can read about below, along with stats, info, trends and analysis for all of the matchups.

Good luck!
