NHL Betting Tips Week 16
There are 11 games on the NHL slate for Tuesday, with Martin Brodeur perhaps making his final appearance in his hometown of Montreal. Brodeur is still undecided about returning next year. His New Jersey Devils will face a Montreal team fresh off a win against Chicago and playing pretty good hockey, going 3-1-1 in their last five games. Brodeur isn’t what he used to be, but have to expect him to put up a good performance in front of his home town fans one last time. Carey Price has been solid at home all season, so will look for this one to go under 5.
Moving ahead to Friday, there are only two games on the schedule, but one of them happens to be a pretty good one, as the red-hot Anaheim Ducks travel to Chicago to face the defending Stanley Cup champions. The Ducks have the best record in the league, although Chicago isn’t too far behind and this could be a great regular season showdown. Both teams will be bringing their best and have to believe there will be a bit of offense, making the over worth a good look.
The slate is back to normal on Saturday with 13 games, including a decent match-up between the Detroit Red Wings and the Los Angeles Kings. Both teams have competent goalies and are laboring a bit offensively, so the under is worth a good look.
Things don’t get much easier for the Ducks, as they go from Chicago to St. Louis, where the play the Blues, who happen to be the other team which has eight losses on the season. St. Louis trails Chicago by three points but enters the week having played four fewer games than the Blackhawks, so in all likelihood it will be St. Louis in first place in the near future. The game with Chicago is likely to take a bit out of Anaheim, but it will most likely be defensively. The team’s offense shouldn’t miss a beat and will look to back the over one more time.
