NHL Betting Tips For Tuesday, January 30

Jon and DerekWe’ve finally got National Hockey League action to bet on again tonight after 4 days off for the NHL all-star break!

It’s always a bit tricky betting on teams in their first game after a long layoff, especially an all-star break when the coaches and players all head their separate ways for some rest and relaxation. In case you missed it, we posted an article yesterday about one trend that has stuck out from over the past 6 years (that’s as far back as we tracked it), and it’ll be interesting to see whether the Overs continue to roll in tonight.

Personally, we’re going the conservative route with just 2 bets tonight (although 1 is a +150 value play) and will use the leans to see if we’re dialed in or not.

Good luck tonight, and let’s have a great second half of the season.

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.
