The upcoming weekend of National Hockey League action gives you ample room for several selections. Might as well focus on some of the teams that are making a splash on the ice.

2012 NHL Betting Picks For The Weekend Of January 7 and 8

1) Vancouver Canucks @ Boston Bruins – Saturday, January 7

Sports betting lines were made for this kind of clash, a repeat of the 2011 Stanley Cup Finals won by Boston in seven games, only some of which were contentious. Boston blew out Vancouver in the three games the Bruins hosted in that particular series. Everyone knows that Boston went into Vancouver to capture Game 7 in authoritative fashion, but this series never would have gotten to a Game 7 if Boston hadn’t been able to win three times at home when trailing in the series. Down two games to none, Boston looked cooked as it headed home for Game 3, but then the Bruins chased Vancouver goaltender Roberto Luongo in Games 3 and 4 to even the series. Vancouver narrowly pulled out Game 5, but Boston was again able to bring down the heavy hammer back in New England for Game 6. As Vancouver comes back to Boston for this regular-season showdown, it will be hard for the Canucks to feel particularly confident. Oh, they’ll be intent on doing something differently, but pure intentions can only go so far. Trust the Bruins – now with a championship swagger – on their home rink.

2) Columbus Blue Jackets @ Los Angeles Kings – Saturday, January 7

When you place your sports bet on a regular-season NHL game, you should make it count. This is certainly a spot in which to make a play, and it should naturally go with the Kings at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. Columbus has the fewest points in the NHL right now with just 25. The Blue Jackets have been floundering since the very start of the season in early October. They’ve won just two of their last 10 games and do not show any signs that they’ll be able to mount a big-league fightback over the next three and a half months of the season. Los Angeles, on the other hand, is leading the Pacific Division, ahead of the San Jose Sharks. This game is as good a regular-season value as you can ever reasonably expect to find in the NHL. Go with the Kings against the road-weary foe from the state of Ohio.

3) Colorado Avalanche @ St. Louis Blues – Saturday, January 7

The St. Louis Blues have been up and down over the past four seasons, making the playoffs one year and then failing to get in the next. This year, the Blues are back at it. They’re hot on the trail of the Chicago Blackhawks and Detroit Red Wings in the Central Division; with 49 points, they’re just three points behind the Blackhawks and (in the Eastern Conference) the New York Rangers for the most points in the NHL. When considering an NHL betting sites play this weekend, take the Blues over Colorado, because St. Louis has lost just three times in regulation at home this season.
