The NHL regular season is winding down and I have a trio of NHL games you should keep an eye on.
NHL Betting Analysis March 25-31
New York Islanders at Winnipeg Jets
When: Thursday, March 28 at 8:0 pm ET
Where: Bell MTS Place, Winnipeg, MB, CA
Betting Analysis: The Islanders have started the week off well, winning 2 in a row against Philadelphia and Arizona. NYI is a very good 21-13-1-2 in away games this season. The last time they battled Winnipeg they lost 1-3, though.
The Jets have been on fire in their last few games. Winnipeg is a terrific 5-1 on the moneyline in their last 6. They battle the Dallas Stars on March 25 before this game. That gives the Jets plenty of time to recover whether they beat the Stars or the Stars beat them.
Winnipeg should get the job done. If you don’t like the moneyline odds, go for the puck line because Jets should win by 2.
Pick: Winnipeg Jets
Vegas Golden Knights at San Jose Sharks
When: Saturday, March 30 at 9:00 pm ET
Where: SAP Center, San Jose, CA
Betting Analysis: Vegas travels to San Jose on Saturday in a matchup between two of the best in the Western Conference. The Golden Knights have gone 8-2 SU in their last 10. Although Vegas is hot, they could cool off big time this week.
They’re at St. Louis, at Colorado, and take on Minnesota before this Saturday matchup with the San Jose Sharks. Vegas could lose 2-of-3 before they even end up in the SAP Center. San Jose is 23-8-2 at home and although the Golden Knights beat them 7-3 in the last matchup, the Sharks should play well enough on Saturday to exact revenge.
Pick: San Jose Sharks
New York Rangers at Philadelphia Flyers
When: Sunday, March 31 at 12:30 pm ET
Where: Wells Fargo Center, Philadelphia, PA
Betting Analysis: The New York Rangers travel to Philadelphia to battle the rival Flyers on Sunday. NYR hasn’t had a good season. Philadelphia’s hasn’t been much better.
However, the Flyers are 18-16-3-1 at home while the Rangers are an awful 12-20-4-1 in away games. To make things more difficult for NYR, they must battle Pittsburgh on March 25, Boston on March 27, and St. Louis on March 29. Philadelphia should win by at least 2 goals.
Pick: Philadelphia Flyers puck line
