Tampa Bay Lightning vs. St. Louis Blues

  • When: Tuesday, November 30th, 2021. 7:00pm ET
  • Where: Amalie Arena, Tampa, Florida
  • TV: Hulu
  • Radio: 97.1 FM The Fan (Lightning) // ESPN 101 FM WXOS (Blues)
  • Live Stream: NHL Live
  • NHL Betting Odds: St. Louis Blues -1

The Lightning have begun to assert themselves. Heading into their Sunday match versus the Minnesota Wild, Tampa Bay has won 3 straight. St. Louis has lost 2-of-3. Both losses were to teams the Blues should have smashed, the Detroit Red Wings and the Chicago Blackhawks. The hot Lightning should win this one.

NHL Betting Pick: Lightning

Colorado Avalanche vs. Toronto Maple Leafs

  • When: Wednesday, December 1st, 2021. 7:30pm ET
  • Where: Scotiabank Arena, Toronto, Ontario
  • Radio: Altitude Sports Radio 92.5 FM (Avalanche) // TSN Radio 1050 Toronto (Maple Leafs)
  • Live Stream: NHL Live
  • NHL Betting Odds: TBA

From Nov. 3 through Nov. 27, the Avalanche won 7-of-10. Colorado has definitely become a force in the Central Division. But although the Avs can win this, Toronto is the play. Colorado averages more goals, 3.9, than any team in NHL. But the Avalanche rank twenty-fourth in goals allowed. The Maple Leafs have a great offense. So this matchups implies the home team wins.

NHL Betting Pick: Maple Leafs

Boston Bruins vs. Nashville Predators

  • When: Thursday, December 2nd, 2021. 7:30pm ET
  • Where: Bridgestone Arena, Nashville, Tennessee
  • Radio: 98.5 FM The Sports Hub (Bruins) // ESPN 102.5 The Game (Predators)
  • Live Stream: NHL Live
  • NHL Betting Odds: TBA

Heading into the week, the Bruins have fallen to fifth place in the deep Atlantic Division. Boston should grab a win versus Vancouver on Nov. 28. Nashville, though, is a better team than Vancouver. The Predators don’t have a fantastic offense, 2.8 goals per, but they do have a strong defense, 2.9 goals allowed each match. The D should keep Nashville in this. On their ice, Nashville can beat Boston.

NHL Betting Pick: Predators

Edmonton Oilers vs. Seattle Kraken

  • When: Friday, December 3rd, 2021. 10:00pm ET
  • Where: Climate Pledge Arena, Seattle, Washington
  • Radio: CHED 630 AM (Oilers) // KJR 950 AM (Kraken)
  • Live Stream: NHL Live
  • NHL Betting Odds: TBA

Edmonton has played great heading into the week. The Oilers have won 4-of-5, including beating the Vegas Golden Knights 3-2 on Nov. 27. But the Kraken are also playing great. Seattle beat Washington 5-2 on Nov. 21. On Nov. 24, the Kraken blasted Carolina 2-1 and then on Nov. 27, Seattle dusted Florida 4-1. Seattle is in a groove, making them an attractive home play in this.

NHL Betting Pick: Kraken

Buffalo Sabres vs. Carolina Hurricanes

  • When: Saturday, December 4th, 2021. 7:30pm ET
  • Where: PNC Arena, Raleigh, North Carolina
  • Radio: WGR 550 AM (Sabres) // 99.9 The Fan FM (Hurricanes)
  • Live Stream: NHL Live
  • NHL Betting Odds: TBA

Buffalo shouldn’t be good enough to beat Carolina on the road. The Sabres have a 8-10-3 record as of Nov. 28. Before their Nov. 28 match versus Washington, the Hurricanes had built a 15-3-1 record. Carolina ranks seventh in goals per, 3.4, and second in goals against, 2.1. Give the Hurricanes the nod on the puck line.

NHL Betting Pick: Hurricanes

Toronto Maple Leafs vs. Winnipeg Jets

  • When: Sunday, December 5th, 2021. 8:00pm ET
  • Where: PNC Arena, Raleigh, North Carolina
  • TV: TSN3, TSN4
  • Radio: TSN Radio 1050 Toronto (Maple Leafs) // Power 97 FM (Jets)
  • Live Stream: NHL Live
  • NHL Betting Odds: TBA

Toronto has a tough week ahead. But heading into it, the Maple Leafs are 15-6-1 and have gone 8-2 SU in thier last 10. From Nov. 18 through Nov. 27, Winnipeg went 1-5 on the moneyline. The Jets can hang. The Leafs should offer some value, though, because this happens on Winnipeg’s ice.

NHL Betting Pick: Maple Leafs

Calgary Flames vs. Vegas Golden Knights

  • When: Sunday, December 5th, 2021. 10:00pm ET
  • Where: T-Mobile Arena, Las Vegas, Nevada
  • Radio: TSN Radio 1050 Toronto (Flames) // Power 97 FM (Golden Knights)
  • Live Stream: NHL Live
  • NHL Betting Odds: TBA

As of Nov. 28, the Flames are in second place in the Pacific Division. The only team ahead of Calgary are the Edmonton Oilers. But Vegas beat Calgary 5-3 in the last head-to-head. If the puck line is decent, the Knights might be worth backing to win this by more than 1.5. But if the puck line don’t make sense, Vegas moneyline is the play.

NHL Betting Pick: Golden Kngihts
