NHL Betting Tips for Tuesday, December 29

We went 1-1-1 last night but hit our Best Bet as the Avalanche upset the Sharks in San Jose. We had Colorado on the +0.5 puck line in regulation at even odds, but the Avs paid +170 on the money line if you had the guts to take them straight up.

We pushed the Over 5 in Vancouver as the Kings scored 5 of their own but the Canucks couldn’t manage even 1. Our loss came on the Rangers, who trailed 2-1 going into the third period before Nashville lit up Lundqvist for three more goals.

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: Predators @ Blues
Time: 8:00PM ET
Pick: Blues -135 (Pinnacle)

Nashville exploded for 5 goals last night in a home win over the Rangers, but now they face Blues goalie Jake Allen who has a 1.62 GAA in his last 8 starts. Allen has also held the Preds to 1 goal in 2 meetings already this season. Blues have had some uncharacteristic struggles at home this season but might finally be on track, seeking their fourth straight win on home ice. We like the Blues a lot in this spot at this cheap price.
