Buffalo Sabres vs. New Jersey Devils

Tuesday, April 11, 2023 – 07:00 PM EDT at Prudential Center 

Jack Hughes (New Jersey Devils)

Over 3.5 Shots

  • Goals Scored: 42
  • Goals Assisted: 54
  • Shots Per Game: 4.32

New Jersey can potentially go top of their division with a win tonight (should Colorado lose) and their opponents Buffalo are coming into this game on a back-to-back.

Buffalo allows the 8th most amount of shots per game this season and the player we are targeting has had the most shots on the NJ Devils roster. Jack Hughes has had 60 shots more than the second highest shot taker having played four games less.

Averaging 4.32 shots per game we are more than willing to lay the juice on Hughes to see over 3.5 shots in this NHL matchup. Hughes has averaged 4.5 shots per game this season when facing the Buffalo Sabres. He is coming off a one-shot game against the Boston Bruins so should be trigger-happy tonight in this must-win home game.

Chicago Blackhawks vs. Pittsburgh Penguins

Tuesday, April 11, 2023 – 07:30 PM EDT at PPG Paints Arena

Evgeni Malkin (Pittsburgh Penguins)

Over 1.5 Points

  • Goals Scored: 26
  • Goals Assisted: 56
  • Shots Per Game: 2.95

The Chicago Blackhawks come into tonight’s game on a back-to-back whilst opponents Pittsburgh Penguins had a rest last night and must win this game to get themselves back into the playoff race. We are loving the value available on Evgeni Malkin to score 2+ points in this matchup at +190. Malkin has been the Penguins second highest points scorer this season (behind only Sidney Crosby).

Malkin clearly favors being on home ice having played 40 games both home and away he has totaled 50 points at home compared to 32 on the road.

We believe the Penguins could rack up a score in this one and Malkins’ odds to see 2+ points are slightly overpriced in our opinion.

Edmonton Oilers vs. Colorado Avalanche

Tuesday, April 11, 2023 – 09:30 PM EDT at Ball Arena

Nathan MacKinnon (Colorado Avalanche)

Anytime Goalscorer

  • Goals Scored: 39
  • Goals Assisted: 68
  • Shots Per Game: 5.14

Colorado Avalanche star player Nathan MacKinnon has been on fire in recent games, banging in 2/2/1/0/2 goals in his previous five games. He has scored 16 goals in 22 games against Pacific Division teams (his best goals-per-game ratio against any division) and has also managed to get on the scoreboard in both of his games against the Edmonton Oilers this season.

The only reason this isn’t our favorite NHL pick today is that we are laying juice for an anytime goalscorer which we generally don’t like to do.

Given the circumstances and the fact the Oilers are prone to allowing goals, we are taking MacKinnon to find the back of the net in this matchup at -110.

For Centennial State residents looking to bet on this game, you can do it at our top Colorado betting sites.

Seattle Kraken vs. Vegas Golden Knights

Tuesday, April 11, 2023 – 10:00 PM EDT at T-Mobile Arena

Chandler Stephenson (Vegas Golden Knights)

Over 0.5 Assists

  • Goals Scored: 15
  • Goals Assisted: 48
  • Shots Per Game: 1.46

Our final selection is one of the best value picks on today’s board for a player to score an assist anytime.

Chandler Stephenson is coming in at +140 to score an assist tonight, he is the Golden Knights’ top assister thus far this season. Stephenson failed to register an assist last time out but prior to that did go on a five-game assist-scoring streak.

Opponents Seattle are on a back-to-back here and will likely have a “down” night having solidified their playoff spot. Stephenson has had 15 assists in 16 games played on a Tuesday and has hit at a 67% conversion rate against the Kraken this season.
