NHL Betting Tips For Saturday, November 2

Jon and DerekIt’s a whirlwind Saturday in the NHL with a whopping 14 games on the slate. With so many teams also playing last night, it made for one busy Saturday morning, that’s for sure.

We suffered our first losing day in nearly three weeks last night, going 1-2 on our trio of Over plays (New Jersey/Philly, Dallas/Colorado, Winnipeg/San Jose). It’s a tricky card today with the number of teams playing the second leg of back-to-backs, but hopefully we can get back on track tonight and push the season unit profit total into double digits.

Before we get into tonight’s action, we wanted to thank everyone who supported the site yesterday in one way or another.

The posts breakdowns and opinions on every game continue to be free, but Site Supporters get exclusive access to our personal betting card if you’re interested in tailing along. We’ll be adding more perks for Site Supporters in the next couple of weeks (including DFS hockey tips) and welcome anyone else jumping aboard. Your support will make continuing to run this website more viable — not to mention stopping the wives from complaining about all the time we spend on it.

We didn’t have time to get breakdowns up for the early afternoon games, but we’re in action on a trio of contests this evening. Here’s the breakdowns for the entire evening slate, along with any betting opinion we might have (including the three bets we made).

Good luck on whatever you play!
