2/21 NHL Bets

Buffalo Sabres ML (-130) – DraftKings – 1 Unit

These two teams are tied in the standings with 52 points apiece. However, the point differentials illustrate a much different story. The Sabres stand at -9 this season whereas Montreal is at -41 “which is good for worst in the Eastern Conference”. While neither team has been tearing things up, it is clear one is better than the other.

The Canadiens come into this having already begun their selloff as Sean Monahan has departed for sunnier pastures in Winnipeg. This certainly hasn’t helped matters for Montreal and one would assume that the team morale is low. That said, the defense has long been struggling before any fire sale, with the Canadiens giving up 3.53 goals per game this season.

Buffalo has a winning record on the road this season (12-11-3). Funny enough that is better than the Canadiens record at home (11-15-3). Furthermore, the Sabres have won three of the last four games played between these teams in Montreal. While they are no world beaters by any measure, they can be considered a much better team in relation to their competition.

Philadelphia Flyers vs. Chicago Blackhawks – Under 6 (-120)Bet MGM – 1 Unit

This game looks like a slow, boring one. We have the Flyers who are having a turnaround season under Torts winning games with strong defense and limited offense. They haven’t had a total under six in their last three games but also have been placing with the pace up against teams like the Maple Leafs and Devils. That sort of matchup will not be the case tonight.

Philly is a heavy -198 road favorite against doormat Chicago. The Flyers rank 23rd or lower in goals scored per game, power play percentage and shooting percentage. With that said, expect them to try to win out in grind them out defensive fashion which should be doable given the Blackhawks limited offense.

Let’s move on the Blackhawks; there is not much to say about them when using them for an under. Conor Bedard is back but that eighteen-year-old boy cannot change such a high level of dysfunctionality by his lonesome. Chicago has scored just 23 goals over their past 16 games, and one or fewer goals in 12 of their past 21 games. This includes five or fewer total goals scored in 13 of those 21 games.

Toronto Maple Leafs 60 Min Line (-120)DraftKings – 0.5 Units

Toronto Maple Leafs -1.5 (+120) – DraftKings – 0.5 Units

I’m not going to go crazy over the stats as this is certainly a clear mismatch and I’m not sure that has to be established much. However, given the discount to -120 on the 60 Min Line as opposed to -218 on the primary money line for Toronto, I just want to be all over that. DraftKings is giving us all around better odds on the Maple Leafs 60 min line and puck line than any other big site.

Toronto is 8-2-0 over its last ten games. They will likely dole out a punishment tonight to the struggling Coyotes. Auston Matthews couldn’t be in better form at the moment, so it is a great time for his yearly homecoming. Arizona comes in losers of TEN STRAIGHT. Good lord, that is horrible. I generally hate puck lines, but I have to incorporate at least a partial one here as to split the unit.
