2014 NHL Betting – Picks For Saturday, December 13

Posted by Don Melrose on 12/12/2014 9:13:09 PM

The National Hockey League season is nearing the 30-game mark for every team, which means that the halfway point of the season is not too far in the distance. What will happen Saturday?

Game 1: Ottawa Senators @ Boston Bruins – Saturday, December 13

There are a number of stories worth keeping an eye on in the NHL right now, and one of them involves the Boston Bruins, who are scuffling at the moment at eighth place in the standings, just ahead of the Florida Panthers in the Eastern Conference, a possibility no one imagined at the beginning of the season. The Bruins are 4-5-1 in their last 10 games, and that’s definitely cause for concern. However, the Bruins were ripped on a long West Coast road swing that took them through a number of tough teams such as defending Stanley Cup champion Los Angeles and strong contender Anaheim. The San Jose Sharks are pretty decent, too. Now that Boston is playing at home again and is taking on some middle-of-the-road opponents, you should expect the Bruins to be better and sharper. They have a lot of time in which to get things straightened out. This game against Ottawa should mark one instance in which the Bruins should feel comfortable on the ice.

NHL Betting Pick: Boston

Game 2: Tampa Bay Lightning @ Washington Capitals – Saturday, December 13

These teams are both very similar over their last 10 games, with Tampa Bay going 6-3-1 and Washington going 5-3-2. The Lightning, though, are leading the Eastern Conference with 41 points, one ahead of Detroit. Tampa Bay has played two more games than Washington, but the Lightning have six more wins. Washington has five overtime losses and therefore has a higher point total despite not winning as many games as it would have liked. In general, Tampa Bay’s ability to win games has been more pronounced this season, and that’s one reason to take the Bolts in this game. Another big statistic in favor of the Lightning is that they have the second-best goal differential in the NHL, with a plus-25 mark. Only one team, the Chicago Blackhawks, is better, at plus-34. Washington is plus-4, so when weighing the strengths of two teams, you should feel Tampa Bay has what it takes to get it done.

NHL Betting Pick: Tampa Bay

Game 3: St. Louis Blues @ Colorado Avalanche – Saturday, December 13

The final game on this slate is one in which the underdog faces a tall task. The St. Louis Blues have been a very consistent regular season team in recent years. The Blues play well during the six and a half months encompassing the regular season. The playoffs represent the problem for the franchise. Colorado, meanwhile, has stumbled badly after making the playoffs last year as a highly-seeded team. One of the success stories of the previous season has only 26 points right now. You should feel that St. Louis can take care of business on the road in Denver.

NHL Betting Pick: St. Louis
