NHL Betting Tips For Thursday, November 10

Jon and Derek

Weird night in the NHL yesterday as all 3 games went to overtime or a shootout.

We lost our Best Bet on the Ducks in OT as the Blue Jackets prevailed 3-2. Anaheim was the better team in the game, outshooting Columbus 32-18, but they didn’t get off to a good start (falling behind 2-0 by the 5:29 mark of the first) and ultimately paid the price.

Our leans split 1-1, with the Senators/Sabres easily going Under 5 but the Blackhawks failing to cover the Over 2.5 team total in a 2-1 win over the Blues.

There were just 14 goals scored in those 3 games last night. Let’s cheer for some higher-scoring games on tonight’s 10-game NHL slate.

Late post today because it was a busy day at work. Hopefully you’ve still got enough time to get your bets in for tonight.

Good luck tonight.
