There are few things better than hitting the couch and watching sports on the weekend, and if you are a fan of the NHL, you will be pleased to hear that there are a ton of games on tap over the next few days. Things start out slow with only a couple of games on the schedule for Friday, but you have the pick of the action on Saturday and Sunday, with the puck set to drop on several huge games. There are a lot of excellent NHL betting odds opportunities waiting for you, so let’s look at some of the weekend games that are sure to be worth watching and having a little flutter on.
In Depth Analysis On The Top NHL Betting Games For The Coming Weekend (Feb. 10th – 12th)
Tampa Bay Lightning at Minnesota Wild – Friday
You might wonder why a team that is dead last in their division would feature among the best games of the weekend, but you need only look at the Atlantic Division to see why. The Tampa Bay Lightning may be in the cellar, but a mere 6 points separates them from the second-place spot. They have won back to back games, but will be up against it when they head to Minnesota to face a Wild team that has surged to the top of the always competitive Central Division. This one looks to be a good deal more competitive than the standings might suggest.
St. Louis Blues at Montreal Canadiens – Saturday
The Canadiens may have an 8-point lead atop the Atlantic Division, but with 4 games in a row dropped, they are now beginning to feel the heat of the chasing pack on their neck. Things are not about to get any easier for Montreal, as their weekend travels take them into St. Louis to face a Blues team that is in the process of pulling out of a slump with back to back wins. They will have a legitimate shot to keep it rolling against a Montreal squad that has not been great on the road.
Chicago Blackhawks at Edmonton Oilers – Saturday
The NHL will close out Saturday night with an excellent Western Conference battle between the Blackhawks and Oilers. Chicago are 4 games above .500 on the road this season, and are in the process of trying to close the gap that the Wild have opened up atop the Central Division. The Oilers, led by Connor McDavid, are still in the hunt for the Pacific Division crown, sitting just 4 points back of the San Jose Sharks. These are two teams that know how to score, so expect to see some fireworks on Saturday night.
Montreal Canadiens at Boston Bruins – Sunday
Just to be clear, there is not a lot of love list between these two iconic franchises. Their beef with one another goes all the way back to the days of the Original Six, and you can always expect an all-out war whenever they collide. The Bruins fired Coach Claude Julien earlier this week, so don’t be surprised to see a fire lit under this bunch as they try to impress new head coach Bruce Cassidy. This is the game that I will definitely be tuning into this weekend.
