NHL Predictions and Free Picks for December 11th:
Chicago Blackhawks vs. Buffalo Sabres – The Chicago Blackhawks make only their 2nd visit to HSBC arena in Buffalo, NY in the last seven years tonight. This is the lone meeting between these two this season, with Chicago taking the only meeting last season 4-1 in Chicago. However, Buffalo has won 3 of the last 4 meetings between these two overall. The Hawks have won 3 of their last 4, while Buffalo is coming off a very strong home outing against the Washington Capitals, topping the Eastern Conference leaders 3-0. Buffalo has been strong at home all season long and I look for more of that tonight as an underdog.
Free Pick – Buffalo to win at +110 – Bet it at Bodog.com
Anaheim Ducks vs. Detroit Red Wings – The Anaheim Ducks are coming off of a character win at home Tuesday, a game they trailed 3-0 in going into the 3rd period. That overtime victory snapped a 5-game losing streak for the Ducks. The Red Wing offense has not been as potent as usual, averaging under 3 goals for per game and they have been shutout 3 times already this season, matching last years year-long total. The Ducks are 2-5-4 on the road this season, but tonight marks the beginning of a make or break 4-game road trip for the Ducks, who also play 7 of their next 8 away from the Honda Centre in California. The Ducks are already fighting for their season, and always play well against the powerhouse Red Wings.
Free Pick – Anaheim to win at +155 (Good Value) – Bet it at Bodog.com
Dallas Stars vs. San Jose Sharks – Both of these teams have lost games in the last week in which they held at least a 2-goal lead. Dallas, in fact, has done it twice, giving up a 3 goal lead to Anaheim Tuesday after giving up a 2-goal lead on home ice Sunday against the Oilers. The Sharks boast a 94% penalty killing rate at home (the best on home ice in the NHL), but it wasn’t effective enough in a 5-4 loss to the Kings on Tuesday. The Stars are 11-2-3 after a loss, a stat that has kept them in the Western Conference playoff picture. After two crushing defeats in a week, I look for Dallas to make a statement tonight in San Jose.
Free Pick – Dallas to win at +170 (Good Value) – Bet it at Bodog.com
