    Happy Martin Luther King Day! After what I’m sure was a long weekend of NFL playoff betting, let’s keep riding that wave with a full day of NHL action. We have a great slate all day today, love the board. Things start at 1:00 pm EST with:

    Florida Panthers @ Buffalo Sabres

    Both teams have been scoring over 3.3 GPG over their last 10. More importantly, both teams have been giving up over 3.5 GPG over that same stretch. Good Offense + Bad Defense, give me the over

    PICK: Over 6.5 (-125)

    Detroit Redwings @ Colorado Avalanche

    Same logic applies as the game above applies here. Both teams have capable offensese, and haven’t been playing a lick of defense lately giving up over 3.67 GPG (BOTH TEAMS!). Enough Said.

    PICK: Over 6.5 (-105)

    New Jersey Devils @ San Jose Sharks

    Getting 2 picks in this game. New Jersey has been scoring over 4 per game, San Jose has been giving up over 4 per game. We’re going to take the over, relying heavily on NJ to get us there. While we’re at it, let’s double down on the Devils Offense, and awful San Jose Defense.

    PICK: Over 6.5 (-110), New Jersey -1.5 (+135)

    Dallas Stars @ Vegas Golden Knights

    Everyone needs a rest, and with all the offense getting us started today, still recovering from the weekend. Go ahead and schedule your nap in this time slot, still plenty more action later tonight. Two solid defensive teams, and average to below average offenses.

    PICK: Under 6 (-115)

    Washington Capitals @ New York Islanders

    This is going to be tight, I understand the Islanders are solid defensively and haven’t been great offensively lately. Washington has been scoring upwards of 3.6 goals per game over the last 10. I’m pretty sure Martin Luther King mentioned something about always taking the over at 5.5 in the NHL at one point in his I Have a Dream Speech. I’m not going to disagree with him on Martin Luther King Day.

    PICK: Over 5.5 (-110)

    Calgary Flames at Nashville Predators

    Nashville’s lost 3 in a row, Calgary has won 2 in a row. Nashville’s numbers lately have looked better than their record. I like them to bounce back tonight. Taking the value.

    Pick: Nashville ML (+120)
