Top NHL Betting Games Of The Week (Nov. 28th – Dec. 1st)
With every NHL team now having at least 20 games under their belts this season, one thing has become very clear: there is a high level of parity in this league. There really hasn’t been a dominant team that has come to the forefront just yet, and all 4 division races are very tight. Look at the last 10 games of each team and you will also see that there are an awful lot of teams sitting in the 4-6 to 6-4 range, which again shows just how tough it is to win on a regular basis in this league. The close races in the divisions also ensures that we get a bunch of great games to look forward to every week, and this week is no different. Let’s look ahead to see the big games on this week’s schedule as well as the latest betting odds.
In Depth Analysis On The Top NHL Betting Games Of The Week (Nov. 28th – Dec. 1st)
Dallas Stars at St. Louis Blues – Monday November 28
The Central Division has been the best in hockey for several years now, and it always seems to serve up some great rivalry games. The Dallas Stars are a little off the pace they have been setting in the past couple of season, yet still only find themselves 4 points back of the second-place St. Louis Blues. A win on the road would make the gap a little tighter, but they are going to need to dig down deep to beat a Blues team that have been great at home all season long.
Tampa Bay Lightning at Columbus Blue Jackets – Tuesday November 29
Two of the most explosive offenses in the NHL will be squaring off in this one, so expect some sparks to fly in Columbus. Tampa Bay are a game over .500 on the road this season, and have already banged in 70 goals. Despite losing 2 in a row, they are still 6-4-0 in their last 10. Columbus have been playing well of late, too, and are 6-2-2 in their last 10 games. They are 7-3-1 on home ice this season, so they are going to be a tough nut for Columbus to crack.
San Jose Sharks at LA Kings – Wednesday November 30
We mentioned earlier how tight the races are in each of the 4 divisions, but it is the Pacific Division that is the tightest of all. There are only 8 points separating first place Edmonton from basement dwelling Arizona, which gives you an idea of the log jam in the middle. Two of those teams, the San Jose Sharks and LA Kings will be squaring off in a California battle that could potentially put one of them on top of the heap.
New Jersey Devils at Chicago Blackhawks – Thursday December 1
The Devils are a better team than their overall record might suggest. Part of their problem has been their inability to get results in the road, and they will have another tough one on Thursday night when they head to Chicago to face a Blackhawks team that have been dominant on home ice. Part of the fun of this meeting is that these are two teams who don’t meet very often. The Devils have actually won 2 of the last 3 meetings versus Chicago, so we could have an upset on the cards here.
