With the Holiday season just around the corner, several teams are embarking on one final road trip before Christmas Day, while a handful are getting their bags packed for a long vacation that will extend in to the new year. When deciding where to lay your online sportsbook betting money this weekend, keep an eye on potential matchups featuring those teams that are making long trips, particularly a handful of teams that will be playing on the opposite coast. Include some NHL betting while you are betting on NFL games this weekend.

Ottawa Senators @ Colorado Avalanche

Friday, 9:00 PM ET

One night after clinching their sixth road win of the season with a 3-1 victory over the Minnesota Wild, the Senators are in Denver to take on the Colorado Avalanche. Ottawa has struggled on the road this season, particularly in the second of back-to-back games away from home when they are 0-3-1. It won’t get any easier against the league’s highest scoring offense, as Paul Stastny and the Avalanche search for their fifth straight win. Stastny leads the Colorado offense with 13 goals and 32 points, and has even more help in that department with the addition of new teammate Tomas Fleischmann. Fleischmann scored a hat trick in the Avalanche’s 4-3 win over the defending Stanley Cup champion Chicago Blackhawks on Wednesday, and should continue to produce as a top-six NHL betting lines forward. Colorado is 8-4-1 at home this season, and can move in to sole possession of first place in the Northwest division ahead of the Vancouver Canucks with a win on Friday.

Pick: Avalanche

Toronto Maple Leafs @ Vancouver Canucks

Saturday, 10:00 PM ET

There will be similar circumstances on Saturday night when another Canadian team from the east coast travels to the west as the Maple Leafs take on the Canucks at Rogers Arena. Toronto general manager Brian Burke will get a close look at a team that he helped build earlier in the decade against a team that he continues desperately to work on. The Maple Leafs are 4-9-1 on the road this season, and are coming off of a 5-2 loss to the Calgary Flames. Meanwhile, Vancouver is 10-3-2 at home and have put together consecutive online NHL betting wins to climb to the top of the Northwest division standings.

Pick: Canucks

Dallas Stars @ Detroit Red Wings

Sunday, 5:00 PM ET

Unlike in the aforementioned games, this contest will feature a team traveling north all the way across the country rather than east or west, but it will be no easier for the Stars when they make the trip to Hockeytown. Detroit has the best home record in the NHL scores at 12-4-2, and should have little trouble dismissing a Dallas team that is playing .500 hockey on he road this year. Take the Red Wings by two goals in this one.

Pick: Red Wings
