NHL Betting Tips For Tuesday, January 12

jon_derek (1)We split our two NHL betting tips last night. The Bruins and Rangers went under the total as New York scored two third-period goals to win 2-1, but we cashed the Over 5 in Los Angeles as the Kings defeated the Red Wings 4-2.

We’re going with both of last year’s Stanley Cup finalists on our NHL tips for tonight’s action, along with a hot team that no one’s really paying attention to.

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: Lightning @ Avalanche
Time: 9:00PM ET
Pick: Lightning -120 (Bet365)

There’s a lot of optimism in the Tampa dressing room these days. They’re finally close to full health, and they’re coming off two straight OT wins. Now they visit Colorado, where they haven’t won in their last 6 tries, so they should be focused to try and end that streak. The Avalanche got lit up for 6 goals against last time out in Chicago and is below .500 at home, so we like Tampa’s chances of getting the job done tonight.

VS Pick
Game: Oilers @ Coyotes
Time: 9:00PM ET
Pick: Coyotes -141 (Pinnacle)

When you factor in expectations and perception, there might not be a hotter team in the NHL these days than the Coyotes. They’re 7-1-2 in their last 10 games and have collected points in 5 straight. They’ve also owned the Oilers during the Dave Tippett era, going 21-2-4 in 27 games. Some trends are meaningless, but that’s one we put stock in because it’s got to be in Edmonton’s head by now. The Oilers are in another funk, losing 5 of their last 7. Even if this one’s close in the third period, we don’t think the young Oilers have enough confidence to get the job done tonight.
