NHL Betting Tips For Tuesday, November 29

Jon and DerekIt was a 2-0 mini-sweep yesterday for our leans. The exhausted Flames managed just 1 goal to go well under their 2.5 Team Total, and the Stars scored in the final minute of regulation to cover the +0.5 puck line against the Blues.

Much busier night today with 11 games on the NHL schedule! We’ve got thoughts on all of them below, beginning with our favourite bet of the day: the Predators/Avalanche Over 5.

Before you get to the writeups and leans, one quick note:

We posted a couple of articles to our site yesterday that you might want to check out, both of them about home ice advantage in the NHL.

The first compares NHL home ice advantage to home field/court advantage in other sports, and looks at stats over the past 5 years to determine how much home ice advantage is worth to the moneyline.

The second article analyzes all 30 teams’ home/away records over the past 5 seasons and identifies which teams have the best home ice advantage in the NHL (we were surprised with what we found), as well as which team has actually been worse at home than on the road during that time.

We’re hoping to post quite a few more articles to our site in the upcoming months. If there are any NHL betting topics you’d like to see covered, please don’t hesitate to let us know. You can message us on Twitter or Facebook, or shoot us an email to editor@NHLTips.ca.

Good luck tonight!
