NHL Betting Tips For Wednesday, November 22

Jon and DerekIt will be a crazy busy night in the National Hockey League today as every team but the St. Louis Blues is in action!

We’re looking forward to a ton of games to watch on TV tonight, but 15 games took a long time to handicap. The way our heads are spinning after looking at all of these matchups, we’re glad there aren’t 15 games in one night that often.

Our personal bets have gone 1-1 over the last few days, losing the First Period Under 1.5 in Edmonton/St. Louis last night on a stinker allowed by Talbot and hitting the Jets Team Total Over 2.5 Monday in Nashville. We’ve been hovering around the +3/+4 unit mark on the season for a while, so hopefully tonight’s the breakout night we’ve been waiting for.

The Dallas/Colorado game was a game that we’ve wrestled back and forth all day about, trying to decide whether to take the Over 6 or the Avalanche moneyline. Ultimately, we went with the Avs Team Total (albeit at a pretty steep -147 price), choosing to take Jonathan Bernier’s play out of the equation. Hopefully it was the right move.

We’re on 3 other bets tonight as well that you can read about below, along with breakdowns and opinions on the rest of tonight’s busy slate. Good luck, and we’ll be back Friday (there’s no games tomorrow for U.S. Thanksgiving, but make sure to enjoy the NFL action.)

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.
