Bet $10, Win $200 if Either Team Scores a Goal >>
Matt Duchene Anytime Scorer (+150)
We have a Central Division tilt as the fourth-place Nashville Predators host the second-place Minnesota Wild. Duchene scored in his last game against the Wild and should be in an excellent spot to do so again on home ice.
Duchene has scored six goals over his last 12 games, entering this matchup in good form. He should have a good chance to keep It going in this matchup as the Wild are projected to start Cam Talbot between the pipes.
Talbot has been incredibly inconsistent recently as he has allowed three or more goals in four of his past seven starts, posting a 0.905 save percentage over that span. This season, Talbot’s save percentage against division opponents, this season, Talbot’s save percentage drops to 0.889.
John Carlson Anytime Scorer (+340)
The Metropolitan Division’s fourth-place Washington Capitals host the Atlantic Divison’s second-place Toronto Maple Leafs in what is projected to be a high-scoring matchup. Currently, the total for this matchup sits at seven with the juice on the over.
These odds are too long to pass on Carlson as he has been playing his best hockey recently, at least in the offensive zone. Carlson has scored five goals over his last nine games and has a great opportunity against a Toronto team that allows goals in bunches.
Over their last 10 contests, the Maple Leafs have allowed an average of 3.9 goals scored per game. Erik Kallgren is the projected starting goaltender for Toronto and has allowed four or more goals in each of his last three starts.
Nathan MacKinnon Anytime Scorer (+125)
We have a Central Division battle as the first-place Colorado Avalanche travel to Winnipeg to take on the sixth-place Jets. MacKinnon has dominated Winnipeg this season as he has scored four goals over his three games against the Jets, and I expect him to keep It rolling in this game.
MacKinnon has been in great form recently as he has scored 10 goals over his last nine games. He should be able to keep this hot stretch against a Winnipeg team that struggles mightily on their end.
This season, the Jets rank just 27th in the league in five-on-five expected goals against per 60 minutes (xGA). Additionally, Eric Comrie is the projected starting goaltender for the Jets and has allowed three or more goals in three of his past four starts.
Best of luck!
