NEW JERSEY DEVILS VS NEW YORK ISLANDERS: A CLASH FROM THE METRO
Let’s start with my underdog tip for the night, and it comes from a clash out of the Metropolitan Division. The Devils play host to the Islanders on Tuesday night in the Garden State, and I will just put it out there now that I see the Islanders as the better team no matter whose home ice we are skating on.
The Devils just snapped a 3-game slide by taking out the Sabres in their last game, but beating Buffalo doesn’t have me thinking that New Jersey has their issues fixed. All the pre-season hype around the Devils has completely disappeared and at 9 – 9 – 0 – 1, the home team has barely managed to stay at or above .500.
Vitek Vanecek has been a sieve between the pipes this season, and he and the Devils’ defence are undoubtedly to blame for the lack of success. Vaneck is sporting an ugly 3.61 GAA this season, and that is a far cry from the 2.45 GAA he toted last year. I think everyone expected his game to progress in his fourth season in the NHL, including the line setters, which, if you recall, had New Jersey ranked in the top 4 to win this year’s Stanley Cup. I know this because I have been updating the Stanley Cup Futures Odds every two weeks here at Bettingexpert.
Only 3 points ahead of Columbus at the bottom of the Metro Division table sits these Devils at 19 points, and the Over has been the best play to make when it comes to making bets on games involving New Jersey. As anyone can see, through 19 games the Devils Over is 14 – 5 and I think the Islanders are going to be just fine tonight.
Yes, the Isles just lost to Philly snapping their 3-game win streak, but let’s make no mistake the Flyers are playing some decent hockey in 2023. Those are words no one has been able to say in the last 3 years, so a 1 – 0 loss isn’t all that concerning for me. The line is also a reason I am playing the Isles because New Jersey doesn’t deserve to be such strong favourites whether they are home or not. Just seeing 1.59 made me immediately wonder if the Isles could upset the Devils tonight because I see so much more value in the road team at 2.45. This is a relatively even game, and I will tell you that if New Jersey was more like 1.80 I might feel otherwise about taking them at home.
Sometimes the lines influence me as much as my gut feelings on a game like this, so with no hesitation I am putting the Islanders on the board with the 2.45 offer.
CHICAGO BLACKHAWKS VS SEATTLE KRAKEN: A GOAL-FEST IN THE WINDY CITY
Speaking of goals, right? 6! Only 6? The 1.87 offer from Bet365 doesn’t bother me a bit in this spot because we have been putting the Kraken total on the board plenty lately.
If you recall on November 20, I mentioned that the Kraken had played 3 straight games that ended 4 – 3, and they played Calgary that night. I offered that Over 6.5 and predicted another 4 – 3 game to take place, and that’s exactly what happened. Hey, you can make this stuff up because you are more than welcome to go look for my November 20th article and see for yourself.
I am not shying away from a Seattle total even if they did fall short against Vancouver last time out. That 5 – 1 final score snapped a 6-game run of Overs crashing the total, and I think that this game might honestly be 5 – 5 with overtime deciding who takes that second point from the match.
I might normally be concerned that Chicago could struggle to hold up their end of the total with their recent results because they sure do get stuck on 2 goals on plenty of occasions. Do you remember what happened all three times these two teams met last season? Holy Twine, Batman!!
Seattle had their best season points total since joining the NHL, and the Blackhawks? Well, they were total rubbish and with 12 points they still are a mess. Only one team can be at the bottom of the standings, and the Hawks have that spot claimed again right now with only 12 points in the Central Division.
Seattle scored 19 goals against Chicago in the three meetings a season ago, and the way the Kraken is playing this season I expect this to be an outrageously high-scoring game. I don’t put a 5 – 5 prediction out there if I don’t think it can happen.
VANCOUVER CANUCKS VS. ANAHEIM DUCKS: DUCKS WATCHING THE SNOWMEN
The last time the Ducks took the ice, they looked great out of the gate against Edmonton scoring first and then jumping out to a 2 – 1 lead just 6 minutes into the game. So how did that work out for them?
Oh, you know what a snowman is in hockey, right? I don’t know if you folks use that term in Europe and abroad, but when someone dumps 8 goals on your ass you just got SNOWMANNED!
Enter, the Ducks! They just got plowed by the Oilers offense, and after taking that 2 – 1 lead the Oilers scored the next 6 goals to earn the win, 8 – 2. I think all of us have been waiting for the Oilers’ offence to come to life because they have simply been underachieving this entire year thus far. Well, back to life they are, and after seeing that with my own eyes, I am not about to shy away from another Ducks total tonight.
Even though the line is a little inflated at 1.80, you know I don’t normally put those on the board very often. I think over the 3 seasons I have been writing for BE I have yet to pass 1.80 and I have only done that about 3 times. I like my ROI when it comes to each play individually, and I do have each bet as a 4U offer regardless of the parlay odds.
Anyway, we do all see who leads the NHL in scoring this season, right? The Nucks are averaging 4 goals a game and that has them ranked #1 in all of the NHL. They are also ranked #5 on the defensive side of the ice allowing only 2.5 GPG, and the Ducks’ offence tends to be rather lethargic at times. Noted.
I still see a 5 – 2 win for the home team in this spot, and that’s all we need to happen to complete the night. Vancouver already has five players with over 20 points through 22 games, and two of those players are on the Nucks back line. Everyone on this team is pitching in to produce, and I expect a handful of pucks to find the net for the home team tonight as stated above.
