Posted by Derrick Harper on December 12, 2017 in

The National Hockey League continues its action through the winter months with some Mid-December games. This week sees some pretty good games and a couple games that we have some pretty solid picks on. Let’s take a look at the latest betting odds and Top NHL Picks of the Week.

Top NHL Picks of the Week – December 12th Edition

St. Louis Blues over Tampa Bay Lightning

Two of the top teams in the league meet up in St. Louis. The Blues are looking to win their fifth straight game. The Lighting has Andrei Vasilevskiy between the pipes, and he is 19-4-1 on the season. The Blues are pretty good at home, and their offense has been electric. Look for St. Louis to grab a home victory and take over the top spot in the NHL standings.

New York Rangers over Ottawa Senators

Henrik Lundqvist and the Rangers get a chance to move up from their sixth spot in the Metro Division with a road game at Ottawa. The Senators have struggled as of late with four straight losses. Look for the Rangers to go on the road and score several early goals and come away with the road win on Wednesday.

Winnipeg Jets over Chicago Blackhawks

The Winnipeg Jets are making a move towards the top spot in the Western Conference with 39 points, and now they get a chance at the Blackhawks. Chicago got back on track with back to back wins over Buffalo and Arizona, but overall have struggled as of late. Look for the Jets to use another solid performance from Connor Hellebuyck and beat the Blackhawks at home.

The Jets should be one of your NHL Picks of the Week.

San Jose Sharks over Vancouver Canucks

Two Western Conference teams out of the Pacific Division will get together in Vancouver. The Canucks come into the week with a two-game losing streak, after dropping a game Saturday to Calgary. The San Jose Sharks lost on Sunday at home to Minnesota. San Jose is looking for their 17th win of the season. Aaron Dell has been the man between the pipes, and look for him to take down Jacob Markstrom and the Canucks in Vancouver.

Nashville Predators over Calgary Flames

Mike Smith and the Flames are looking to gain some Western Conference traction. The problem is – they are going against Pekka Rinne, who has been one of the top goaltenders in all of the league. The Predators are putting pressure on St. Louis at the top of the Central. Look for the Predators to grab another win, this time on the road at Calgary.
