We have yet another huge Thursday night NHL card on our hands with a total of 10 games to take our picks from.
Tonight’s set of games looks very enticing for a lot of goals to be scored, but with most of the goal total lines being set at 6.5, we have found some better value plays and NHL picks on moneyline and puck line betting markets at top-rated sportsbooks, as well as the one favorable total line on tonight’s card which features the L.A Kings and Winnipeg Jets.
Detroit Red Wings vs. Boston Bruins
Thursday, October 27, 2022 – 07:00 PM EDT at TD Garden
The Boston Bruins come into tonight’s matchup top of the Eastern Conference and so far, have a perfect 5-0 record on home ice (including two overtime wins).
The Bruins and the Pittsburgh Penguins have scored the most goals in the Eastern Conference so far with a total of 30 goals in 7 games, an average of just over four goals per game.
Detroit Red Wings
The Detroit Red Wings have not been overly bad so far this season, yes, they have a 3-1-2 record but surprisingly a win on the road tonight would see them one win ahead of both the Tampa Bay Lightning and Toronto Maple Leafs.
Boston have won 6 of their previous 10 home games by two or more goals and facing a Detroit Red Wings team who have lost by a margin of two or more goals in 6 of their past ten visits to the TD Gardens.
The Puck Line Pick
We are liking the Bruins to cover the PK line tonight against this Red Wings team who are yet to lose in regulation on the road.
If winning wasn’t motivation enough, the Bruins have now gone 0-2 in their previous two games against the Red Wings including a 2-1 defeat on home ice last time these teams met at the TD Garden.
Predicted Score: Detroit 2 - Boston 5
Florida Panthers vs. Philadelphia Flyers
Thursday, October 27, 2022 - 07:00 PM EDT at Wells Fargo Center
By far the best moneyline pick (at least in terms of not laying juice or minus money) has got to be the Philadelphia Flyers on home at NHL odds at +175.
These seem like a big set of odds considering how strong the Flyers have looked so far this NHL season.
Philadelphia have started the season with a 4-2 record, with their worst result coming last time out in a 3-0 defeat to the 2-7 San Jose Sharks.
We believe back on home ice Philadelphia can put it up to the Panthers and we are expecting a reaction following a shutout against one of the worst teams in the NHL right now.
Florida are strong and clearly there’s a reason why the Sportsbooks have their odds set at -210 on the road.
Florida have only won 3 of their previous 15 road games in regulation and a further two in overtime, losing the other ten.
Interestingly, these teams have met already this season, just over a week ago, where the Florida Panthers came away with a 4-3 win over the Flyers.
The Moneyline Pick
Moneyline underdogs can be tricky, it’s all about picking your spots and we believe we have found a nice spot and set of odds in this situation.
Philadelphia will have to keep this one low scoring if they want to come away with a home victory.
Predicted Score: Florida 2 - Philadelphia 3
Winnipeg Jets vs. Los Angeles Kings
Thursday, October 27, 2022 - 10:30 PM EDT at Crypto.com Arena
Despite most of the NHL total lines being set at 6.5 tonight and making it that little bit harder to take the over, we have found one hidden gem on this 10 game NHL betting card with a 6.0 line here in the Jets and Kings game.
We are confident this line hits 6.5 at some stage throughout the day.
Los Angeles Kings
The Kings have seen some of the highest shots against per game this season with an average of 33, whilst they also take a lot of shots on net with 32.6 per game (the 4th highest in the NHL).
The Kings are 7-1 to the over 5.5 this season and 5-2 to the over 6.5 goal line. This team is happy to play freely and outscore opponents in high scoring affairs.
The only suggesting as to why this is the only game with a 6.0 line is possibly because their previous meetings having had 5/5/5/9/3/5/5/5/3/3 goals each game, so only going over 6.0 one occasion.
The Kings don’t play so tight anymore and the Jets have seen 5/7/7 goals in their road games this season.
The Over/Under Pick
We like this game to see over 6.0 goals and it’s nice to have this push in our favor.
Predicted Score: Winnipeg 3 - Los Angeles 4
NHL Pick: Over 6.0 (-117) at BetOnline
