NHL Betting Tips For Thursday, March 5

Jon and DerekThere are 10 games in the NHL tonight and we’ll be involved in 3 of them.

Breakdowns are below for each game.


We won our Monkey Knife Fight play on Tuesday night, getting 3 points from Crosby and a late add-on by McDavid to get the four points needed to cash our play.

Tonight is another good night to play the Stat Shootout contest, with plenty of high-end players going in the early slate of games.

We’ll once again go with Kucherov and McDavid and we’ll add Marchand to the group, who plays against the Panthers, in hopes they can combine for more than 3.5 points.

Other solid plays tonight include Kane and Pastrnak.
