NHL Betting Tips For Monday, February 6

Jon and DerekWe sat out the 3 games on Super Bowl Sunday after enjoying a 7-4 day on Saturday.

What a crazy football game that was last night! Full credit to the Patriots for scoring two touchdowns and two 2-point conversions in the final 6 minutes of the fourth quarter just to force overtime. But Atlanta has to be kicking itself for not putting the game away when it had the chance, especially when they were in field goal range with 4 minutes to go in the fourth quarter and could have gone up 2 scores before bumbling their way out of field goal range with a sack and a holding penalty.

There are 3 NHL games scheduled for tonight, all of them early starts. Our favourite bet of the day comes in Leafs/Islanders, plus we’ve got stats, trends and opinions on the other 2 games as well.

See you tomorrow to break down the 11-game Tuesday board. Good luck!
