NHL Betting Tips For Tuesday, February 6

Jon and DerekEven with 11 games on tonight’s NHL board, all eyes will be on Pittsburgh as the Western Conference-leading Golden Knights visit the two-time defending Stanley Cup champion Penguins.

Not only will this game be a clash of two heavyweights (it’s only getting slightly less weird to write that about Vegas) but it’s also Marc-Andre Fleury’s first game in Pittsburgh since being let go by the Pens in the expansion draft.

The gut instinct here may be to bet the feel-good story on Fleury stone-walling the Penguins in a glorious return. But with the way Pittsburgh’s offense has been rolling lately (outside of the egg they laid Saturday in New Jersey), the Flower will have his hands full and it will be interesting to see how he reacts. We’re expecting both teams to pot a few and are on the Over, one of four bets tonight as we look to build on a 5-2 run over the last 3 days.

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.
