NHL Betting Tips for Monday, December 28

jon_derek (1)We’re back after nearly a week off for the Christmas break. The NHL shut down for a few days and then we didn’t want to get involved with betting on teams who might be a bit sluggish in their first games back.

Hopefully you had a Merry Christmas, and we wish you the best in 2016.

After winning 5 straight Best Bets, we’ve dropped our last 2. Let’s get back on track tonight and build some momentum going into the New Year!

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.

VS Pick
Game: Kings @ Canucks
Time: 10:00PM ET
Pick: Over 5 -108 (BetOnline)

Kings haven’t been their stingy selves lately, slumping in their last 5 games. Even their win the other night saw them blow a 2-goal third period lead, which never happens. Both teams should be good for at least 2 goals tonight, which would guarantee a push at the worst, and hopefully one team will get 4 or more to cash our Over 5.

VS Pick
Game: Rangers @ Predators
Time: 8:00PM ET
Pick: Rangers +125 (Pinnacle)

The Rangers were ice cold earlier this month but got a big OT win, then had the Christmas break. When a good team breaks out of a slump with a victory, it’s often a good time to jump on them before they go on a hot streak. Nashville hasn’t been itself at home this season and this game seems like a toss-up, so we’ll grab the Rangers at the generous +125 odds.
