Colorado Avalanche vs. Nashville Predators

  • When: Tuesday, January 11th, 2022. 8:00pm ET
  • Where: Bridgestone Arena, Nashville, TN
  • TV: BSSO, ALT2
  • Radio: Altitude Sports Radio 92.5 FM (Avalanche) // WPRT-FM 102.5 The Game (Predators)
  • Live Stream: NHL Live
  • NHL Betting Odds: TBA

Colorado averages more goals per game, 4.3, than any other team in the league. On Jan. 8, the Avs beat Toronto 5-4 in overtime. Up to the Jan. 8 game, Colorado had gone a tremendous 9-1 straight up in their last 10 games. The lone loss happened versus Nashville, though. The Preds can make it two straight since this one is on Nashville’s ice.

NHL Betting Pick: Predators

Montreal Canadiens vs. Boston Bruins

  • When: Wednesday, January 12th, 2022. 7:00pm ET
  • Where: TD Garden, Boston, MA
  • TV: TNT, SN, RDS
  • Radio: CHMP 98.5 FM (Canadiens) // 98.5 The Sports Hub (Bruins)
  • Live Stream: NHL Live
  • NHL Betting Odds: TBA

Montreal isn’t playing well. The Canadiens are a terrible 7-23-4 heading into the week. But this is a rivalry match, which means in most games versus the Bruins, Montreal would have a shot to pull off a major upset. This season, though, a victory shouldn’t be in the cards. The last time these two threw down, the Bruins blasted the Canadiens 5-2. Expect another puck line victory from the home team.

NHL Betting Pick: Bruins

Columbus Blue Jackets vs. Carolina Hurricanes

  • When: Thursday, January 13th, 2022. 7:00pm ET
  • Where: PNC Arena, Raleigh, NC
  • TV: Hulu
  • Radio: 97.1 The Fan (Blue Jackets) // 99.9 The Fan (Hurricanes)
  • Live Stream: NHL Live
  • NHL Betting Odds: TBA

Columbus is a .500 team at best, which means they shouldn’t play well enough on Thursday to upset the Hurricanes. Not only that, but the Blue Jackets face the Jersey Devils twice and top Stanley Cup contender Tampa before even facing Carolina on Thursday. Columbus should be a tired bunch before even landing for this one. The Hurricanes win this by at least 2.

NHL Betting Pick: Hurricanes

Dallas Stars vs. Florida Panthers

  • When: Friday, January 14th, 2022. 7:00pm ET
  • Where: FLA Live Arena, Sunrise, FL
  • TV: NHL Network, SN, TVAS, BSFL, BSSW+
  • Radio: Sportsradio 96.7 FM (Stars) // AM 560 Sports WQAM (Panthers)
  • Live Stream: NHL Live
  • NHL Betting Odds: TBA

St. Louis beat Dallas 2-1 on Jan. 9. The Blues’ victory broke a 4-match Stars’ winning streak. One of Dallas’ wins was 6-5 over Florida in a shootout. After that match, Florida bounced back with a very good 4-3 victory over Carolina in overtime. The Panthers should gain their revenge on Friday.

NHL Betting Pick: Panthers

Toronto Maple Leafs vs. St. Louis Blues

  • When: Saturday, January 15th, 2022. 7:00pm ET
  • Where: Enterprise Center, St. Louis, MO
  • TV: NHL Network, CBC, SN, CITY, BSMW
  • Radio: Sportsnet 590 The FAN (Maple Leafs) // WXOS 101 ESPN (Blues)
  • Live Stream: NHL Live
  • NHL Betting Odds: TBA

The week’s marquee matchup pits top Central team St. Louis versus Atlantic division power Toronto. The Blues are on a 2-match winning streak heading into the week. Both victories impressed. On Jan. 7, St. Louis beat Washington 5-1. Then on Jan. 9, St. Louis cooled down Dallas 2-1. Toronto had been on fire, though, winning 5 straight until the overtime loss to the Colorado Avalanche. The Maple Leafs, which rank second in goals allowed with 2 per game, can pull off the likely upset victory.

NHL Betting Pick: Maple Leafs

Vancouver Canucks vs. Washington Capitals

  • When: Sunday, January 16th, 2022. 2:00pm ET
  • Where: Capital One Arena, Washington, DC
  • TV: NHL Network, SN, TVAS, NBCSWA
  • Radio: Sportsnet 590 The FAN (Canucks) // WXOS 101 ESPN (Capitals)
  • Live Stream: NHL Live
  • NHL Betting Odds: TBA

Sunday’s lone match pits D.C. against Vancouver. Heading into the week, the Caps have lost 3 straight. But although Washington is struggling, Vancouver hasn’t played since Jan. 1. Still, before suffering a coronavirus outbreak, Vancouver had dominated, winning 8-of-10. Give the Canucks a shot to pull off the upset victory.

NHL Betting Pick: Canucks
