Don’t let your turkey hangover slow you down. I have a trio of top NHL games that you need to consider betting on for the week of November 26th to December 2nd.
Top NHL Games To Bet On Nov 26 – Dec 2
Pittsburgh Penguins at Colorado Avalanche
When: Wednesday, Nov. 28 at 9:30 pm ET
Where: Pepsi Center, Denver, CO
Analysis: The Penguins are on the cusp of getting back to .500. In the past couple of weeks, Pittsburgh’s been on a major slide. They did beat Columbus 4-2 on Nov. 24, though. With the win, the Pens could have a decent week.
They haven’t battled Colorado in almost a year. When they did, they lost 2-4. The Avalanche are on a tear, winning 6-of-7 heading into their Nov. 27 battle with Nashville. Colorado’s an excellent 5-2-2 at home this season. The Avalanche won’t dominate Pittsburgh but they’re worth backing to win by at least a goal.
Vegas Golden Knights at Vancouver Canucks
When: Thursday, Nov. 29 at 10:00 pm ET
Where: Rogers Arena, Vancouver, BC, CA
Analysis: With a 12-12 record as of Nov. 25, the Vegas Golden Knights are finally back to .500. Vegas hopes that they can continue winning. If their past few efforts are any indication, the Knights could be back on track.
Vegas has won 3 in a row: 3-2 in overtime against Arizona, 2-0 versus Calgary, and 6-0 against San Jose State, heading into their game against Chicago on Nov. 27. The Golden Knights are on fire offensively, while their defense has really come together.
Vancouver won’t have much shot on Thursday. Giving up the 1 ½ pucks makes sense unless the Knights suffer injuries versus the Blackhawks on Tuesday.
Chicago Blackhawks at Nashville Predators
When: Saturday, Dec. 1 at 8:00 pm ET
Where: Bridgestone Arena, Nashville, TN
Analysis: Blackhawks versus Predators is always a top NHL matchup. These two haven’t thrown down since January, though. Chicago won that match 2-1. The Blackhawks aren’t having a great season. Their 9-10-4 record makes them a tough team to back on the road versus one of the top teams in the league.
Nashville leads the Central with a 16-6 record. The Predators should have no trouble beating their rivals on Saturday. Don’t be surprised if it’s not even close. Nashville could win 3-1, or even 4-1.
