NHL Betting Tips For Tuesday, October 24

Jon and DerekAfter a couple of quiet nights with just 3 games since Saturday, the NHL season picks up again tonight with 11 games on the board.

We went 3-1 in Saturday’s action, winning with the Rangers moneyline, Senators Team Total Over 2.5 and Sharks Team Total Over 2.5. Last night, however, we lost our bet on the Kings Team Total Over 2.5 (posted on Facebook and Twitter) as the Maple Leafs held an opponent under 3 goals for just the third time in 10 games.

It’ll be interesting to see how the Canadiens respond tonight back in front of their home fans when they host Florida. Things are getting pretty ugly already in Montreal, and if the Habs don’t get off to a strong start in the first period, the crowd probably won’t hesitate to turn on them.

But if there ever was an opponent to cure your goal-scoring woes again, it’s the Panthers, who have been lit up for 25 goals in their first 7 games.

We go a bit deeper into that game and the 10 others below, along with our picks and opinions for tonight’s matchups. Good luck!

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.
