NHL Betting Tips For Sunday, November 6

Jon and DerekWe dropped our Best Bet yesterday as the Bruins fell 5-2 to the Rangers despite outshooting New York 37-24.

However, in our first day of posting leans on all the games, those leans went 7-4-1. They’d have been 8-3-1 if the Blackhawks and Stars hadn’t gone scoreless in the final 33 minutes after combining for 5 goals in the first 27.

We received some feedback from a few readers about the new format we rolled out yesterday (breakdowns and leans on every game on the board), but we’d still love to hear more: what you liked, and especially what you didn’t.

It’s a work in progress and we envision the writeups and previews being even better in the future, but knowing what’s most important to you as a hockey bettor will help us determine the final product.

Also, please feel free to weigh in with your opinions below the posts in the discussion area: who are your leans for tonight’s games, and more importantly why.

We’re going with 1 Best Bet again tonight, followed by breakdowns and leans for the other 5 games in Sunday’s action.

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.
