NHL Betting Tips For Tuesday, November 22

Jon and DerekGreat night last night as we went 5-2 overall, including 2-0 with our two Best Bets.

The Predators easily took care of the Lightning, holding Tampa scoreless until the final minute in a 3-1 Nashville victory. That was a really tough spot for the Lightning, playing the final game of a long and already successful road trip, and it showed.

The other Best Bet winner needed a bit of luck as the Stars edged the Wild 3-2 in overtime. Dallas was the better team early but Minnesota twice rallied from 1-goal deficits to tie the game, and the Wild had a 2-on-1 in OT just before Jamie Benn sniped the winner for the Stars.

The leans went 3-2. Winners were the Devils/Sharks Under 5, Colorado/Columbus Under 5.5 and the Oilers/Blackhawks First Period Over 1.5. Our losing leans were on the Rangers/Penguins Under 5.5 and the Flames to beat the Sabres.

Tuesdays are usually really busy nights in the NHL but this week is different because of American Thanksgiving. There’s a pile of games Wednesday night and then a slew of them on Friday as well, instead of the usual Tuesday/Thursday/Saturday full boards.

Here’s breakdowns and leans for the 5 matchups for tonight.
