The NHL season is heating up with four weeks left in the regular season. Just because there are several teams out of the Stanley Cup hunt, doesn’t mean you can’t cash in your NHL bets for the week of March 4th to the 10th.
Must Bet NHL Games for the week of March 4 – 10
St. Louis Blues at Anaheim Ducks
When: Wednesday, March 6 at 10:00 pm ET
Where: Honda Center, Anaheim, CA
Analysis: One of the hottest teams in NHL takes on one of the coldest when the Anaheim Ducks host the St. Louis Blues at the Honda Center on Wednesday, March 6. Although St. Louis is 1-3 on the moneyline in their last 4, overall, they’ve been close to unbeatable in their last 20.
The Blues have gone 17-7 SU in their last 24. In the last matchup versus Anaheim, they dominated the Ducks 5-1 as only a +112 favorite. St. Louis should offer decent odds to get the job done on Wednesday, and it’s hard to see Anaheim putting up much of a fight.
The Ducks are 13-11-6-2 at home. Counting the overtime and shootout losses on their own ice, Anaheim is 13-20 SU at home. The Ducks have gone 1-5 SU in their last 6. They’re 3-13 SU in their last 16. St. Louis easily wins on Wednesday.
Pick: St. Louis Blues
Winnipeg Jets at Washington Capitals
When: Sunday, March 10 at 7:00 pm ET
Where: Capital One Arena, Washington, D.C.
Analysis: Two of the best in the league throw down on Sunday when Central Division-leading Winnipeg heads to Capital One Arena to battle Stanley Cup defending champion Washington.
Washington’s torn it up in recent games. They’re an awesome 6-1 SU in their last 7. The Capitals also have a sweet 19-9-4-1 record at home.
But, the Jets beat Washington 3-1 in the last meeting. Not only that, Winnipeg will be, by far, the best hockey team Washington’s faced in their last 7 matches. The Jets haven’t played nearly as well as they usually do. That should change this week. They’ll cap the week with a victory over the Capitals on Sunday.
Pick: Winnipeg Jets
Boston Bruins at Pittsburgh Penguins
When: Sunday, March 10 at 7:30 pm ET
Where: PPG Paints Arena, Pittsburgh, PA
Analysis: It’s tempting to go with Pittsburgh on March 10 because they are at home, but no team in NHL right now can hang with the Boston Bruins.
Boston is 12-2 SU in their last 14. Pittsburgh did beat the Bruins 3-5 in the last matchup. That game took place in December, though. Boston’s simply the best team in NHL right now, and even though the Penguins are playing well, they’re not playing well enough to stop the Bruins. Boston takes it.
Pick: Boston Bruins
