Montreal Canadiens vs. Pittsburgh Penguins  

Tuesday, March 14, 2023 – 07:00 PM EDT at PPG Paints Arena 

Evgeni Malkin (Pittsburgh Penguins) 

Over/Under Assists 

  • Goals Scored: 23 
  • Goals Assisted: 47 
  • Shots Per Game: 2.90 

The Montreal Canadiens are on a back-to-back here and were thumped 8-4 last night by the Colorado Avalanche. Tonight they face a tough test on the road and we are more than prepared to lay the (-120) juice on Pittsburgh’s Evgeni Malkin to score his 48th assist of the season. 

Malkin is just four assists behind leading assister Sidney Crosby and has been on fire in his previous five NHL games having now scored an assist in his previous five games scoring 1/3/1/1/2 assists.  

Furthermore, Malkin has proved to be productive on a Tuesday with 12 assists in 13 games played this season.

We expect the Penguins to score plenty of goals tonight.

Boston Bruins vs. Chicago Blackhawks  

Tuesday, March 14, 2023 – 08:30 PM EDT at United Center 

David Pastrnak (Boston Bruins) 

Over/Under Points 

  • Goals Scored: 46 
  • Goals Assisted: 42 
  • Shots Per Game: 4.73 

The 4th highest points scorer this season David Pastrnak is set to have over 1.5 points at a nice set of NHL odds at (+130) in tonight’s road game against the Chicago Blackhawks, who allow 3.55 goals per game.  

Pastrnak has faced the Blackhawks once already this season scoring two goals in that game. On top of this, Pastrnak has scored 13 points in 9 games played on a Tuesday and has managed 37 points in 27 games against Western Conference opponents this season.  

Pastrnak has scored over 1.5 points in three of his previous five NHL games and with the Bruins losing 2 of their previous 3 we believe he and the Bruins will be eager to get a victory tonight.

Ottawa Senators vs. Edmonton Oilers 

Tuesday, March 14, 2023 – 9:00 PM EDT at Rogers Place  

Ryan Nugent-Hopkins (Edmonton Oilers) 

Anytime Goalscorer  

  • Goals Scored: 30 
  • Goals Assisted: 50 
  • Shots Per Game: 2.38 

Although Edmonton is heavily led offensively by Leon Draisaitl and Connor McDavid, they can’t be having all the fun. So we are looking to target Ryan Nugent-Hopkins to get back on the scoreboard for the first time in four games.  

Hopkins has been the Oilers 3rd highest point scorer and 3rd highest goal scorer this season as well and (+150) seems like a big set of odds for the center to get on the scoreboard tonight on home ice against a team he has already scored against this season.  

Hopkins has had an impressive 18.8% goal scoring-to-shot ratio this season which is level with team and league top scorer Connor McDavid.

Columbus Blue Jackets vs. San Jose Sharks 

Tuesday, March 14, 2023 – 10:30 PM EDT at SAP Center  

Erik Karlsson (San Jose Sharks) 

Over/Under Points 

  • Goals Scored: 20 
  • Goals Assisted: 64 
  • Shots Per Game: 2.60 

Our final selection today is a matchup between two of the league’s worst teams, who have given up the 3rd and 4th most amount of goals against them and have combined given up 7.4 goals per game.  

The previous game between these teams ended with 8 goals and we are targeting San Jose’s main offensive threat Erik Karlsson to see over 1.5 points in this NHL matchup at (+180) NHL betting odds with BetOnline as our final NHL pick.  

Karlsson has 31 points more than the second-highest scorer on this Sharks team and has been very productive on home ice scoring 48 points in 33 games played, as well as averaging just over one point per game against Metropolitan division teams this season.
