NHL Betting Tips For Wednesday, February 22

Jon and DerekOur leans went 4-4 overall yesterday with a push on the Penguins First Period Best Bet.

With so many teams on bye last week and this week, the weeknight schedules have been lighter. That continues tonight with just 3 games on the board, while there’s just 6 games on Thursday and 4 on Friday.

Even Saturday, when there’s normally 12-13 games on the schedule, there’s only 8. We can’t wait for things to get back to normal again!

There’s not really much¬†that jumps out to us about tonight’s games. The Edmonton/Florida game will be very interesting as the Panthers are red hot but also in a very difficult situational spot, coming home from a 5-game trip and playing their 4th game in 6 nights.

Below are stats, trends and our leans for all 3 matchups tonight. 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.
