There are 24 teams in action in the NHL tonight. FanDuel Sportsbook has a variety of betting options including moneylines, total goals, and player props. Given the length of the 82-game season, the best selections each night can change. Let’s look at some of the best bets for tonight’s games.
Vancouver Canucks at Toronto Maple Leafs
Canucks ML (+102)
Elias Pettersson Anytime Goal (+165)
The Toronto Maple Leafs have struggled at home this season, making them a good team to bet against. Vancouver Canucks have a strong goaltender in Thatcher Demko, while Toronto’s Ilya Samsonov has struggled. Elias Pettersson has a good chance of scoring tonight.
Calgary Flames at Ottawa Senators
Under 6.5 (+108)
The betting line seems too high given the defensive capabilities of both teams. Calgary Flames have a strong rookie goaltender starting tonight, while the Ottawa Senators haven’t been terrible defensively. An under bet is likely to prove profitable in this matchup.
Carolina Hurricanes at Tampa Bay Lightning
Lightning ML (+102)
Carolina Hurricanes are a strong home team, but their away record is not as impressive. Tampa Bay Lightning’s goaltender Jonas Johansson is likely to perform well. The Lightning are expected to win this game.
Washington Capitals at New York Islanders
Evgeny Kuznetsov 3+ Shots on Goal (+104)
Evgeny Kuznetsov has been given a promotion to the top line, and is likely to have a good game. He will likely get a lot of opportunities to shoot against the New York Islanders’ defense.
Edmonton Oilers at Seattle Kraken
Kraken ML (+112)
Jared McCann Anytime Goal (+195)
The Edmonton Oilers have been struggling, particularly in goaltending. On the other hand, Seattle Kraken’s netminder Philipp Grubauer is expected to perform well. Jared McCann, the Kraken’s top goal scorer, will likely continue his strong performance.
