NHL Betting Tips For Wednesday, November 23

Jon and Derek

Our leans went 2-3 yesterday on what was another surprising night in the NHL.

All 5 games were won by road underdogs, including the Islanders upsetting the Ducks in Anaheim. We were torn between Islanders in regulation time and the First Period Under 1.5 in that game, feeling New York would come out with a better defensive effort.

We suggested the wrong one as the Isles won the game 3-2 in a shootout but the teams combined to score 3 goals in the first period.

Whopping 12 games in the NHL tonight! We’ve got one circled as our favourite bet of the night, and we’ve also written breakdowns and our leans for all the other ones.

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.
