Philadelphia 4 @ Boston 5 | 01/22 | 12:00 AM UTC

Philadelphia +120

LOSS

ANALYSIS: The Bruins have started the season 1-1-1 and they are struggling to score, not having scored more than two goals in any of their first three games. The Flyers are not a team you want to face while you’re struggling to score. They have a stifling defense, and their game should definitely carry over to the road.

Tampa Bay 3 @ Columbus 2 | 01/22 | 12:00 AM UTC

Tampa Bay -160

WIN

ANALYSIS: The Blue Jackets are 1-2-1 this season and they just split two games with the Red Wings, who are most likely the worst team in their division. The Lightning won their first two games handily against the Blackhawks, and they should be closer to -200 favorites even on the road. Take the value on the Lightning.

Edmonton 3 @ Toronto 1 | 01/21 | 12:00 AM UTC

Toronto -150

LOSS

ANALYSIS: These two teams started in complete opposite directions with the Oilers starting 1-3-0 while the Leafs started 3-1-0. The Leafs are scoring at 42% on their power play while the Oilers are at just 11% after leading the league last season. The Leafs are giving up fewer goals and scoring more goals than the Oilers and they’ve had success against them in the past. Take the Leafs.

+300 8-4 IN LAST 12 NHL PICKS

Columbus 2 @ Detroit 3 | 01/20 | 12:30 AM UTC

UNDER 5.5

WIN

ANALYSIS: These two teams faced off yesterday at noon and there was a total of five goals scored. One of the goals was a 6 v 5 goalie pulled goal. Neither of these teams score a ton and they should have weary legs with a back to back early in the season. I like this game to stay under.

+177 4-2-1 IN LAST 7 DET O/U PICKS

Buffalo @ Philadelphia 3 | 01/20 | 12:00 AM UTC

Philadelphia -135

WIN

ANALYSIS: The Flyers were schooled at home last night which gives us good value on them at home. Brian Elliott will be starting for the Flyers so expect the defense to put together a good performance in front of him. Last night was the Sabres first win of the season and the Flyers first loss, expect these teams to make some adjustments.
