San Jose Sharks vs. Tampa Bay Lightning 

Tuesday, February 7, 2023 – 07:00 PM EST at Amalie Arena 

 Brayden Point (Tampa Bay Lightning) 

  • Anytime Goalscorer  

The Tampa Bay Lightning took a heavy beating on the road last night when their division and state rivals beat them 7-1, although the Lightning are on a back to back, we believe they can beat the travelling San Jose sharks on home ice and we are betting their top goalscorer this season Brayden Point to find the back of the net at +115 with BetOnline.  

Point has scored 29 goals thus far this season for the Lightning and since the start of 2023 he has scored 8 goals in 14 games and 21 goals in his previous 25 NHL games dating back to last year. The San Jose Sharks allow 3.75 goals per game which is the 4th worst in the NHL.

Timo Meier (San Jose Sharks) 

  • Over/Under Shots  

We are looking to take Timo Meier to have a big bounce back spot tonight in terms of shots as he has only seen a total of 9 shots across his previous 4 NHL games, which is very low considering Meier has taken the 2nd most amount of shots in the NHL this season (only having taken two less than Jack Hughes of the NJ Devils).  

Meier’s shot line is usually set at 4.5 so it’s understandable that we will have to lay -135 juice for Meier to see over 3.5 shots in this road game tonight. Meier has seen 4+ game shots in 64% of his games this season which is the equivalent to (-180) odds.  

Despite laying this much juice we are still getting some value on Meier to have over 3.5 shots tonight and given how poor the Lightning where last night Meier and the Sharks could be smelling blood.  

NHL Pick: Timo Meier Over 3.5 Shots (-135) at BetOnline

Edmonton Oilers  vs. Detroit Red Wings 

Tuesday, February 7, 2023 – 07:30 PM EST at Little Caesars Arena

 Connor McDavid (Edmonton Oilers) 

  • Anytime Goalscorer  

Having just about lost out on the accuracy competition during the all-star weekend, Connor McDavid should be gunning to get on the scoreboard tonight against this Detroit Red Wings team who allow 3.27 goals per game.

The Edmonton Oilers score 3.74 per game which is the highest in the NHL at the time of writing.  

McDavid has been on fire in front of the posts this season having scored 41 goals he leads the NHL with the most goals scored and he is just three goals shy of his previous regular season best of 44 goals, despite having played 30 fewer games.  

McDavid is projected to end the season with 67 goals and although we are laying some small juice here, we like the league’s best player to find the back of the net tonight at (-105).

Leon Draisaitl (Edmonton Oilers) 

  • Over/Under Shots  

When it comes to McDavid’s deadly duo partner, Leon Draisaitl has been either crushing his over 2.5 shot total or going under, his consistency has been very poor but with that said we don’t mind laying (-135) for Draisaitl to see 3+ shots against this Red Wings team.  

Draisaitl has seen 3+ shots in 68% of his games this season, which is (-200) in betting odds. Again we are laying some heavy juice but still picking up some small value on Draisaitl’s shot total over 2.5.  

Draisaitl’s history against Detroit hasn’t been ideal if looking to take the over as his career shots against them are as follows 2/0/3/3/2/1/1/3/3/2.

Hitting just three shots on 4 of 10 occasions, we are hoping to buck that trend tonight.  

NHL Pick: Leon Draisaitl Over 2.5 Shots (-135) at BetOnline
