NHL Betting Tips For Tuesday, February 14

Jon and DerekNice 2-0 Monday yesterday, including a sixth straight Best Bet winner on the Rangers Team total Over 2.5. That bet didn’t look so good going into the third period, when it was a 1-1 game, but the Rangers potted 2 in the third period to cash that ticket.

The Coyotes also continued their recent offensive surge by blowing out the Flames 5-0 in Calgary, easily covering the lean on Arizona’s Team Total Over 2.5 +128. Teams coming off their bye week are now 3-8-1, and there will be a slew of them coming off byes in the next couple of weeks. It’s definitely something to keep in mind going forward.
