NHL Betting Tips For Tuesday, January 10

Jon and DerekWe didn’t love any of the matchups last night, but ended up going a very solid 3-1 on our leans with all 3 wins coming by 2 goals or more.

The Panthers and Devils easily went Under 5, with Florida carrying a 1-0 lead into the final minutes before adding a couple of empty netters to win 3-0. The Capitals downed the Canadiens 4-1, and the Stars upset the Kings 6-4 in LA to comfortably cover the +0.5 regulation line.

Our loss came on the Flames Team Total Over 2.5, as Calgary was skunked 2-0 by the Jets. The Flames team total was going to be our Best Bet before we saw a big line move towards the Jets that we didn’t understand. The line smelled a little bit, so we’re glad we stayed away from it as a featured bet.

On the heels of an 8-3 Saturday, we feel back in the groove again after a couple of weeks treading water. That said, we’re a bit surprised by a couple of lines in tonight’s action – but not enough to change our minds about a few picks we really like.

Good luck tonight!
