NHL Betting Tips For Monday, February 13

Jon and DerekWe took yesterday off from posting writeups and leans to our site, but we posted a pick on Twitter that lost – Sharks First Period Moneyline over the Devils. San Jose outshot New Jersey 19-3 and had a 5-on-3 power play for nearly 2 full minutes, but somehow trailed 1-0 after the first period.

Saturday, we hit our fifth straight Best Bet winner (Canucks/Bruins Over 5) and went 6-5 overall, moving us to 35-26 (57%) for +6.1 units on all posted plays in February. It’s a good start as we shoot for our fourth straight winning month.

Calgary is the latest team to have its NHL bye week, definitely something to keep in mind as they host a “hot” Coyotes team tonight. We read today that NHL teams are 3-7-1 following their bye, which makes total sense. Not only do they not play for 5+ days, they don’t even practice!

It was also interesting to read that NHL teams are 15-5 in their final game before their bye. We thought that might be a letdown spot as players look forward to a few days on the beach and aren’t totally focused on their last game, but that has not been the case so far.

The only other game in the NHL tonight is Rangers at Blue Jackets, and it’s also the game we’ve circled as our favourite bet of the day. Good luck with whatever you bet 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.
