Or we could pass and let him work on his own issues while we keep trying to build our bankrolls with against the NHL odds. We did pick up some extra cash last evening with Colorado handling Montreal as expected and we did not even need the two power play goals from Minnesota and Calgary, as they blew by the total with eight goals. Our only setback was the New York Rangers getting into higher scoring game with Chicago, which they would be unlikely to win and that proved true.
Today our three NHL picks will involve three of the hottest teams in the league over their last 10 games and each will be playing on the road.
Coyotes tend to be more nocturnal animals, roaming at night in packs seeking prey. The Arizona Coyotes (26-30 SU) will be playing after dark but the oddsmakers have them listed as the sacrifice, taking on Dallas (37-21 SU). The Stars wrap up their post All-Star schedule which had them playing seven road games out of nine, which was considered problematic having lost eight in a row prior to this. However, the Stars have made a defensive commitment and have gone 5-0-1 thus far, picking up at least one point in each contest and are just one point behind first place Chicago in the Central.
Arizona had the exact opposite schedule of Dallas, playing seven of nine on home ice, but have dropped three of the first five in Glendale. The Coyotes problem all season has been defense and they rank 27th in goals allowed at 3.04. With Dallas second in the NHL in scoring at 3.21 GAG, it appears the Stars have too many scorers for Arizona to contain. Dallas opened as a -150 road favorite and is 14-4 away after playing two consecutive road games the last two seasons.
Free Pick – Dallas wins
Most times this season, Washington (41-14 SU) would be a top pick, but the New York Islanders (30-25) have good squad and they have been especially effective in their new home in Brooklyn, where they are 19-11 SU. Most sportsbooks checked have the Capitals as very small road favorite which his saying something because they have won 20 of 28 away games.
