NHL Betting Tips For Tuesday, January 24

Jon and DerekGreat night last night as we hit our Best Bet on the Ducks and went 4-1 overall, including first period -0.5 winners of +153 and +160!

We actually thought it was going to be a 5-1 night, as we had the Over 5 in Arizona/Florida and the game was 2-2 early in the second period. It was a surprise to wake up and see neither team scored again until OT, forcing us to settle for a push.

Funny thing yesterday was that we didn’t really like the board that much, which led us to look at a few underdog plays like the two first period puck lines and the Flames +135 (that one didn’t work out quite so well).

We have the same feeling about tonight’s 10-game schedule in the NHL, so let’s just hope for similar results. Below is our favourite bet of the day, followed by stats, trends and leans on the other 9 contests.

Good luck tonight!
