Top NHL Betting Picks of the Week – November 20th

2017-18 STANLEY CUP POSSIBLE MATCHUPS

Anaheim Ducks at San Jose Sharks

Two teams out of the Western Conference that really need a win. The San Jose Sharks and Anaheim Ducks are both struggling right now, with just 20 and 19 points. The Sharks are 10-8 with 20 points, which is tied with Minnesota for 10th in the West. The Sharks have struggled to score, with just 45 goals in 18 games. The Ducks are just a point behind the Sharks and are coming off a win. The Ducks have scored but giving up nearly 3 goals per game. Look for the Sharks to win this game at home.

NHL Betting Pick: San Jose Sharks 4-2 over Anaheim Ducks

Edmonton Oilers at St. Louis Blues

These two just got done playing last week in Edmonton. The Blues won that game, and the Blues have won a bunch of games. St. Louis is 15-5-1 on the season, and lead the Western Conference. The Oilers, after a thrilling season last year have dropped to 14th in the West. The Oilers are only ahead of Arizona in the West, and Buffalo and Arizona in all of the NHL. Edmonton has struggled, and look for that to continue. The Blues win this game at home.

NHL Betting Pick: St. Louis Blues 4-1 over Edmonton Oilers

The St. Louis Blues should be one of your NHL Betting Picks of the week.

Chicago Blackhawks at Tampa Bay Lightning

The Chicago Blackhawks are coming off the win over the Penguins over the weekend. That was a nice win for a team that has sputtered a bit out of the game. Now, they are in Tampa Bay, where the Lightning has won 8 out of 11 games. Look for the high scoring Lightning offense to take advantage of some of the youth that Chicago is playing this season. Tampa Bay wins this game Wednesday at home.

NHL Betting Pick: Tampa Bay Lightning 6-3 over Chicago Blackhawks

Detroit Red Wings at New York Rangers

After taking Thursday off – the National Hockey League is back in action on Friday. Two of the oldest franchises in the league will get together. The Red Wings are 10-8-2 on the season and 6-6 on the road. They would be in the postseason if it started today. For the New York Rangers – they would not. They are 9-9-2. New York has allowed over 3 goals per game. That need to improve if they want to get to the postseason. Look for them to win this game over a Detroit team that has overachieved to this point.
