NHL Betting Tips For Tuesday, November 13

Jon and DerekIt’s only mid-November, but things are already starting to tighten up in the NHL.

After a high-scoring start to the season, defenses have ruled the day in recent action. All four of yesterday’s games went Under the total (including a trio of 2-1 games) while five of the 14 teams in action Sunday were held to one goal.

Fortunately, Saturday was a bit higher-scoring as we were able to hit a pair of Overs and a Team Total Over as part of a 4-1 day. After dropping our lone play on Sunday (Blues -109, posted on Twitter), we go into the week with a 20-17 record for a season-high +3.6 units on the year.

Looking to build on that season total tonight with three plays — a Team Total Over, a First Period Moneyline and a rare -0.5 in regulation play. Details on those picks are below, along with breakdowns for every other game on the board. Good luck tonight!

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.
