NHL Betting Tips For Monday, January 23

Jon and DerekWe took yesterday off from posting plays to our site, though we posted a bet on Twitter yesterday afternoon (Bruins 1st Period +122) that ended up pushing.

Saturday, we settled for a 5-5 day. It looked like we were on our way to a winning night before the Ducks (+150 on the moneyline) blew a 3-2 lead in Minnesota by allowing 3 unanswered goals in the final 7 minutes.

There are 6 games in the National Hockey League. Below is our favourite bet of the night, along with stats, trends and our opinion on the best way to bet the rest of the games.

Good luck!

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.
