NHL Betting Tips For Tuesday, November 15

Jon and Derek

Last night was a quiet one in the NHL with just one game being played. Our lean on the Lightning Team Total Over 2.5 was a winner as Tampa blanked the Islanders 4-0 in New York.

We suggested Lightning Team Total Over 2.5 instead of Lightning moneyline because we liked Tampa’s chances of scoring goals, but we also thought the Islanders might put up a better fight.

It’s got to be disappointing to Islanders fans how the team has played this year coming off a solid season last year that included a first-round series win over Florida in the playoffs.

Tons of action tonight as 26 of the NHL’s 30 teams are in action. It took a few hours to handicap all the matchups but we’ve come up with our 2 Best Bets for tonight, along with breakdowns and leans on every other game on the board.

Good luck tonight!

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.
