Top NHL Betting Picks of the Week – November 26th

Posted by Derrick Harper on November 26, 2018 in

It’s been a fun first 1/4th of the National Hockey League season. Many of the pre-season favorites are at or near the top of their divisions, while some surprises have come to the forefront. Let’s take a look at some of this week’s top NHL Betting games and the latest odds.

Top NHL Betting Picks of the Week – November 26th

Boston Bruins @ Toronto Maple Leafs – 11/26

In this battle of Atlantic Division teams, the 4th place Boston Bruins travel to Toronto to take on the Maple Leafs. The Maple Leafs have been playing better after a slow start, as they are 7-3 in their last 10 games. In their last 10 games, the Bruins are 6-2-2.

Boston has been a bit hard by the injury bug. Patrice Bergeron is out for 4 weeks, and the blue line has some lingering injuries. Defensively, Boston has really taken a hit. With all of the injuries that they have had on the defensive side, they are playing players who have very little experience. With Zdeno Chara, Brandon Carlo, Charlie McAvoy, and other out with injuries, this bodes well for the Maple Leafs.

Look for Toronto to take advantage of a weakened Boston defense and put up some point in this one. Bet the Maple Leafs at home.

Colorado Avalanche @ Nashville Predators – 11/27

In this Central Division showdown, the 3rd place Colorado Avalanche look to come to Nashville and gain ground on the division leading Panthers. Colorado enters the week on a 4 game winning streak while going 6-2-2 over their last 10 games. Nashville has gone 6-3-1 over their last 10 games.

Colorado will bring the NHL’s points leader to Nashville. Mikko Rantanen leads the league with 38 points in 23 games. Rantanen is the main contributor to Colorado’s number one ranked scoring offense. He and the Avs will go up against a tough Nashville defense that has given up a league-low 55 goals.

Predators are one of the favorites at the NHL Betting Odds.

The Predators like to slow things down on the ice, which is something that good teams rarely do. If they do this against the high powered offense of the Avalanche, it could lead to problems for the division frontrunners. Nashville is good at home with an 8-3 record, but the Avs can match that with an 8-4-2 road record. Take Nashville in a good one at home.

Buffalo Sabres @ Tampa Bay Lightning – 11/29

The Buffalo Sabres may very well be the biggest surprise team in the NHL right now. The Sabres sit atop Atlantic division with a one-point lead over the Tampa Bay Lightning. These two teams will collide in Tampa on Thursday.

The Sabres are being led by their line of Jake Eichel, Jeff Skinner, and Jason Pominville. This line will be coming to take on a Tampa defense that is still without goaltender Andrei Vasilevskiy.

Entering the week, the Sabres are on a 9 game winning streak and are 8-4-1 on the road. Tampa is 9-3 at home this season, so something has to give. Buffalo is too hot right now. The Sabres win this game on the road.

Best of luck with all your NHL Betting action. Enjoy!
