NHL Must Bet Games Jan 21-23

San Jose Sharks at Washington Capitals
When: Tuesday, Jan. 22 at 7:00 pm ET
Where: Capital One Arena, Washington, D.C.
TV: ESPN+

Analysis: San Jose must travel to Washington to take on the Capitals a day after battling the Florida Panthers on the road. The Sharks are 11-11-2-1 in road games this season. The Sharks are 0-2 in their last couple of matches before the Florida game.

The Capitals are on a horrible losing streak, though. They’ve gone 0-5 in their last 5. 3 of the losses were on the road to Columbus, St. Louis, and the New York Islanders. The question in this match is whether the Capitals bounce back, or if they head into the All-Star Break playing their worst hockey of the season.

Washington should bounce back. They’re too good of a hockey team to make it 6 losses in a row with 4 of those losses being on their own ice.

Pick: Washington Capitals

Washington Capitals at Toronto Maple Leafs
When: Wednesday, Jan. 23 at 7:30 pm ET
Where: Scotiabank Arena, Toronto, ON, CA
TV: NBCSN

Analysis: After battling the Sharks, the Caps close out the first half of the season in a battle on the road against the Toronto Maple Leafs. The defending Stanley Cup champs could be in for a tough battle on Jan. 23.

Toronto is 13-10-1 at home. The Maple Leafs are 1-3 in their last 4, but they beat the Capitals 4-2 the last time they faced them. The main thing about that match is that it happened way back in October.

Washington’s got a great shot of making it two in a row right before the All-Star Break.

Pick: Washington Capitals

Nashville Predators at Vegas Golden Knights
When: Wednesday, Jan. 23 at 10:00 pm ET
Where: T-Mobile Arena, Las Vegas, NV
TV: NBCSN
Stream: NBC Sports Live

Analysis: The Nashville Predators hope to beat the Vegas Golden Knights right before the break as a dog on Wednesday. The Preds are 1-4 in their last 5.

Because of the awful record, it’s hard to back Nashville even though they’ll offer decent odds. Vegas is 16-4-2 at T-Mobile Arena and have gone 8-2 in their last 10. The Golden Knights should enter the All-Star Break two goals winners on Wednesday night. So, if you don’t want to swallow the short odds, back Vegas on the puck line.

Pick: Vegas Golden Knights
