Tonight, Tuesday, December 8th, brings us only four games in the NHL, but will still offer some exciting games to bet on for sure. The night of NHL games kicks off with John Tavares and the New York Islanders in Philadelphia to take on the Flyers. A great Canadian match up with the Montreal Canadiens and the Ottawa Senators. The Vancouver Canucks are in Nashville to square off against the Predators. And the late game tonight is the Dallas Stars visiting Anaheim for a showdown with the Ducks. Although it isn’t an action packed night in the NHL we have a couple solid predictions for tonight’s NHL games. Get your free NHL predictions and picks below.
NHL Predictions and Free Picks for December 8th:
New York Islanders @ Philadelphia Flyers – Both teams have been surprises this year for different reasons. The Islanders who were expected to be at the bottom of the Eastern Conference are one point out of a playoff spot right now. While the Flyers who were supposed to be an East powerhouse are sitting in 3rd last in the East. Neither team is doing great on defense giving up just under 3 goals per game each. Look for this to game to go over.
Free Pick – Bet the OVER 5.5 total goals (-115)
Vancouver Canucks @ Nashville Predators – These two teams have similar records, as the Canucks come into this game 16-13-0 and the Predators are 16-11-2. Nashville hasn’t beaten the Canucks at home since November of 2006. The Predators are 1-3 in their last four at home. The Canucks seem to have Nashville’s number as they have won 6 of the last 7 meetings.
Free Pick – Vancouver to win (-120)
Montreal Canadiens @ Ottawa Senators – The Canadiens and Senators are in the middle of the pack in the Eastern Conference standings, with only two points separating them. Ottawa took their first meeting in Montreal by a score of 3-1. Ottawa is fresh off of a five game road trip where they only managed one win. This will most likely be a close game, but I like the odds given for the Canadiens.
Free Pick – Montreal to win (+140)
