NHL Betting Tips For Thursday, December 12

Jon and DerekThere are 12 games in the NHL tonight and we will personally be involved in 4 of them.

It’s been a rough couple of weeks for us on plays after a solid start to the season.

Regression to the mean can be expected over a long season.

Hopefully, we can get things moving in the right direction tonight.

Good luck on whatever you play!

Odds below are at the time we made the pick.
