NHL Betting Tips For Saturday, December 7

Jon and Derek

Eleven games on the NHL card today, beginning with afternoon matchups in Philadelphia and Vancouver.

We didn’t have time to write full breakdowns of those two matinees, but we are in action on the Senators Team Total Under 2.5 -120 as the Sens complete a tough five-game road trip before heading home to host Boston on Monday.

Breakdowns and opinions for all the evening action are below, including the four plays we’re personally on in evening action.

Site Supporters received an email this morning with all our picks and opinions in order of confidence.

Good luck on whatever you play!
