NHL Tuesday betting picks & top parlay picks | March 08, 2022

There are eleven National Hockey League (NHL) games scheduled for Tuesday in the Americas, starting at 7 p.m. Eastern Standard Time (U.S.). Here’s where BettingPlanet suggests you place your bets on the Tuesday games. All lines provided by Bovada.


Colorado Avalanche @ New Jersey Devils

Colorado is playing its second game in as many days, but the Avs don’t have to travel far from Long Island to Newark, New Jersey. The Devils are coming off a big win over the Blues in St. Louis on Sunday. This is the first of two games scheduled between the two teams, so the Devils will at least have unfamiliarity as an advantage at the start. It’s one of the few advantages New Jersey has.

Even on tired legs, the Avs are better than the Devils in almost every aspect. They score almost one goal more per game on average and allow almost one fewer goal per game on average than the Devils. The Avs score on the power play at a five-percent better clip, but the Devils do stay out of the penalty box and kill penalties better than Colorado.

The real problem for the Devils is goaltending, which is why taking Colorado on the moneyline and betting more than six goals will be scored in this one. Colorado averages almost four goals per game and New Jersey allows 3.54 per game and scores 3.04 per game. We expect Colorado to allow at least one sloppy goal to push the total over six.

Over Six Goals Scored

Florida Panthers @ Pittsburgh Penguins

Florida also played Monday, albeit in Buffalo. That really doesn’t matter, as indicated by early betting lines. It’s basically a tossup here, and when one of the teams in a tossup played the previous night, take the other team. Pittsburgh to win at home, as the home team has won each of the two previous games played, and by one goal in either overtime or a shootout.

The line on the Penguins to cover the 1.5 goal spread is also attractive given that Florida is playing its second game in as many days. The Panthers struggle staying out of the penalty box, and on tired legs, we expect this to result in power play goals for the Penguins, who stay out of the box and kill 85.5 percent of the few penalties they take (392 penalty minutes this season).

Even though the Panthers will likely start Sergei Bobrovosky in goal against the Penguins, Pittsburgh’s Tristan Jarry has actually been the better goaltender this season, and stopped 94.7 percent of Panthers’ shots in the one game he’s played against them. Take Pittsburgh to win by two or more.

Vegas Golden Knights @ Philadelphia Flyers

Philadelphia got a rare win at The Fortress, but it was against an injured Golden Knights roster early in the season, so I’m throwing that out as misinformation. Vegas might be without Max Pacioretty, but they’re still considerably better than the Flyers without him. The Knights are also better on the road (16-8-1) than Philadelphia is at home (10-15-5).

Vegas Golden Knights to win by two or more.

Seattle Kraken @ Toronto Maple Leafs

Toronto gets Seattle at home, and playing on back-to-back nights shouldn’t keep the Maple Leafs from defeating the Kraken. Toronto beat Seattle by four in Seattle roughly three weeks ago, Toronto to win by more than one on Tuesday. I don’t know that Toronto on tired legs can score enough for the over to come through, however. I think they’d have to score five for the total in the game to get to seven.

Arizona Coyotes @ Detroit Red Wings

Arizona’s been on quite a run in their last five, getting an 8-5 win over Ottawa on Saturday and beating Colorado 2-1 on Thursday. The Coyotes have won three of their last five, but all of them were home games. This is Arizona’s first road game since winning at Seattle on Feb. 9. Something tells me the Coyotes will be a bit jet lagged and fall to Detroit, but it’ll be close.

Neither of these teams are prolific offensively, with Arizona averaging just 2.38 goals per game and Detroit averaging 2.86. That’s why betting fewer than six total goals being scored.

Less Than Six Goals To Be Scored

Ottawa Senators @ St. Louis Blues

St. Louis is a favorite to parlay with Vegas and Toronto to win on the moneyline. The Blues are the biggest favorites of the day, and for good reason. The Blues are more than a goal better than Ottawa in average goals scored and allowed per game. And while the Blues enter the game on a three-game losing streak, the Senators enter the game having lost five straight games.

Also, the Senators’ penalty problems (591 penalty minutes this season) will result in St. Louis goals (25.9 percent scoring average on the power play). Take the Blues on the moneyline, to win by two or more, and for more than six goals to be scored.

Dallas Stars @ Nashville Predators

This is a huge game. Nashville has won two of three in the series but needs another win to pull ahead of Dallas in the Central Division standings. Two really good goalies go at it as Dallas visits Nashville, which is why the over/under in this one is set at 5.5. Take the under at -105.26
and stay away from betting the spread. Both Jake Oettinger of Dallas and Nashville’s Juuse Saros have logged save percentages above .922, but Saros has the head-to-head advantage despite allowing more goals per game this season.

Two of the three previous games were decided by one goal, but the over has come in twice, albeit in the first two games in the ice hockey season when neither of these teams were what they are now. The Stars are the hotter team, winning four straight, but Nashville won over Dallas at home just over a week ago. Dallas was playing the back end of back-to-back games, however. Just bet the under and enjoy the show.

Under 5.5 Goals

New York Rangers @ Minnesota Wild

The Minnesota Wild offense will get its toughest test of the season, hosting New York to face Igor Shesterkin and the Rangers. Minnesota has averaged 3.69 goals per game to New York’s 2.95, but the Wild have allowed 3.22 goals per game to New York’s 2.45.

Minnesota has also taken a lot more penalties than New York, and the Rangers score on over 25 percent of power plays. The Rangers also have the better penalty killers. The Rangers look to pull the upset in this one. The Rangers have amassed 10 more points playing in a tougher conference and having played just two more games than the Wild. BettingPlanet’s best pick is to bet fewer than six goals will be scored at -120.

Under 6 Goals

-120.48

Tampa Bay Lightning @ Winnipeg Jets

The Jets struggled to take off against the Rangers’ outstanding goaltender on Sunday, and I suspect they’ll struggle to take flight against Tampa Bay’s Andrei Vasilevskiy. Bet on the Lightning to win. The +145 payout on the Lightning to win by two or more goals is also very attractive since Tampa Bay is better on the road (18-7-2) than the Jets are in Winnipeg (14-11-2). Both goaltenders are good in this one, so the under six goals being scored looks to be the top pick.

Anaheim Ducks @ Chicago Blackhawks

Anaheim is a .500 team on the road, which is better than Chicago has been in Chicago (10-15-4). The goaltending is a push in this one, with competent netminders on both sides despite John Gibson being injured. Anthony Stolarz has actually posted better numbers than Gibson, albeit in fewer games.

Anaheim scores more and allows fewer goals than Chicago. The Ducks might take more penalties, but they also kill penalties at an 83 percent rate. They also score on a quarter of their power plays.

The reason the Blackhawks are favored is because the Ducks assist leader, center Ryan Getzlaf, is out. But that didn’t stop Anaheim from beating San Jose at home on Sunday, and the Sharks are better than the Blackhawks.

The underdogs look to be the top pick in this one.

Washington Capitals @ Calgary Flames

Calgary is playing its second game in as many days, but they didn’t have to travel. Calgary has scored more and allowed fewer goals per game than Washington this season. They also have the better power play and penalty kill. And the Flames have the better goaltender regardless of who starts for Washington. Capitals starting goaltender Ilya Samsonov is listed as day-to-day.

We like Calgary on the moneyline and under six goals being scored. The Flames to win by two is also the most attractive line betting against the spread.
