Vegas Golden Knights (+155) @ Colorado Avalanche (-182)

O/U: 6 -105

My pick: Avalanche puck line -1.5 +138. The Vegas Golden Knights are in rough shape injury-wise. Until they get healthy, their lineup is going to struggle, especially against superior opponents. Let’s ride the Colorado Avalanche at home with great value on the puck line. You have to wonder if this game could get out of hand.

Tampa Bay Lightning (-127) @ Pittsburgh Penguins (+108)

O/U: 5.5 -120

My pick: Over. On paper, this matchup screams take the Tampa Bay Lightning money line, puck line, any way you can. However, this beat-up Pittsburgh Penguins team beat the Toronto Maple Leafs 7–1 the other night with a roster depleted by injury. Anything can happen any given night in the NHL. That example is one reason I will take stay away from a side here and take the total. Both teams are giving up a lot of shots. I was a bit shocked I was able to get this at 5.5. Let’s ride it!

Minnesota Wild ( -124) @ Vancouver Canucks (+108)

O/U: 5.5 -122

My pick: Canucks ML. I really like the Vancouver Canucks tonight. They have won two games in a row, on the road, and are coming back to their barn in what should be a good game. Thatcher Demko will handle the netminder duties for the home squad. If you want to add a prop for this game to make it interesting, Connor Garland is +285 to score a goal. He has a point in every game this season and three goals in his last four games.

Happy gambling and remember, always ride the Tommy Train.
