For the most part, our NHL wagers are based on value, goaltending and situations and therefore we’re just going to keep this section running and throw in some notes unless there is some key information that we want to share or a situational advantage that we see. In that case, we'll post a separate write-up.
NHL Add-ons for Tuesday, January 8
HOME TEAM IN CAPS - all plays are for 2 units unless stated otherwise.
Florida +153 over PITTSBURGH
7:05 PM EST. OT included. The Penguins were one of the hottest teams in the league after ripping off eight straight wins, but they dropped a 5-3 decision to the Blackhawks last time out. We hope to catch the Pens taking a breather here against the Panthers, as the pressure of keeping that run of wins alive is now gone. And Pittsburgh is also playing its last home game before embarking on a trip to the west coast for a five game roadie.
Colorado +134 over WINNIPEG
8:05 PM EST. OT included. The Jets and Avalanche are both coming off wins that ended lengthy droughts, but the Avs are firing with their big guns on deck, while the injury bug has bitten Winnipeg, as Nikolaj Ehlers and Dustin Byfuglien are both on the IR. Colorado had also been playing without its number one goaltender the last two games, but Semyon Varlamov is expected back the lineup tonight. If he sits, We can live with Grubauer.
N.Y. Rangers -½ +425 over VEGAS
10:05 PM EST. Regulation only. The Knights' are legit as ever and they have won six straight but with five of those came against the Devils, Ducks, Coyotes and Kings (twice). Meanwhile the Rangers have lost three straight while getting outscored over that span 18-3. The Rags are healthy, they’re better than what they have shown lately and we’re extremely confident that they’ll play their hearts out tonight after back-to-back, five goal losses. Vegas has the Sharks in next and if there was ever a time to catch this team napping a bit, this would be it. Consider this a throwaway bet if you like, but at a price like this, we'll take a shot on the Rags in regulation.
