NHL Betting Tips For Tuesday, November 28

Jon and DerekIt’s shaping up to be an exciting night of hockey in the National Hockey League with 5 of the 10 games priced in the pick ’em range and 4 games featuring totals of 6.

We split the 2 bets we posted yesterday on Twitter and Facebook, easily winning the Flyers/Penguins Over 5.5 but making an awful call on the Wild as +114 underdogs in Winnipeg. The Jets had just returned from a west coast trip and hadn’t had consecutive days off in nearly 3 weeks, but they were still more than up to the challenge, overcoming an early 2-0 deficit to whip Minnesota 7-2.

There are some tricky games out there tonight. Tampa Bay might look like a lock to beat the Sabres, yet the moneyline dropped 20 cents today towards Buffalo. And the Stars were small favourites in Vegas earlier today despite Dallas’ road woes (3-8-1) and the Golden Knights’ stellar play at home (9-1).

We actually like the board a lot tonight and are in action on 5 of the 10 games. Good luck on whatever you decide to play 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.
