Golden Knights at Devils Prediction

We'll start out here in New Jersey, where the hometown Devils will be at home trying to defend their ice against the visiting Vegas Golden Knights. This should be one of the best games of the night, as both of these teams have been great this season. Vegas is on a downward spiral right now, losing four of their last five games, but they should bounce back at some point. They are scoring 3.2 goals per game and allowing just 2.9. They are also taking 32.3 shots per game and allowing 30.1, so either way you slice it, they have been an effective team on both ends of the ice this season.

The Devils have been one of my favorite teams since the beginning of the season when no one believed in them, and they continue to be a team that I love. New Jersey is scoring 3.5 goals per game and allowing a very small 2.6 on themselves. In terms of shots, they are taking 34.3 and allowing just 28.0 on their netminder, once again showing that puck possession dominance they have on a nightly basis.

MY PICK: Golden Knights +145. This is just a play on the number to get some value here. Las Vegas is a great team that is in a rut right now, but they are going to bounce back soon enough. New Jersey is great, but I think this game is a one-goal affair, and I'm not willing to pay -178 for them.

Here is my play for today, using the strategy of taking both teams to go under their maximum goal total in the 1st period (gimmie legs), taking the favorite at their maximum spread, and adding the most likely goal scorer; you can apply this strategy to any game, any night:

Golden Knights Under 2.5 1P

Blackhawks at Canucks Prediction

For our last game of the night, let's head to Vancouver up in Canada, where we see the Chicago Blackhawks traveling to take on the hometown Canucks. This is a game that absolutely no one is going to care about except for the fans of the teams, as both of these squads have been awful in 2022-23, but that's when you can find some real value. The Blackhawks are terrible, truly one of the worst teams in the NHL. They are allowing 3.6 goals per game and 33.4 shots on their net per game, which is not going to get it done. They are also only scoring 2.4 goals per game and 26.3 shots per game, also two of the lowest numbers in the NHL.

The Canucks are also bad, and have been very disappointing based on the amount of talent that they have. There is no question they have more talent than Chicago overall, but they can't win games with how bad their goaltending has been. They allow a massive 3.9 goals per game, and it's been a death sentence for this squad.

MY PICK: Blackhawks +195. This is just a massive number, and there is simply no way the Canucks deserve to be huge favorites against anyone with how they have been playing this season. We cashed a few times taking the Blackhawks last week against the Flyers and Sabres, and we'll take a shot with them against another bad team.
