Wager Alarm NHL Best Bets: February 12
Andrew Dewhirst brings you his best bets for today's NHL slate.
Calgary Flames at Los Angeles Kings
Calgary is a decent road team (winning 53% of their road games); they have also won their last two road games. The Kings, on the other hand, haven’t won a home game since December 31st. They also have only won 46% of their home games, and have lost five in a row. I like the Flames to win this one on the road.
Chicago Blackhawks at Vancouver Canucks
The Canucks have a few advantages in this game;
- They are a strong home team, winning two-thirds of their home games. Pair this with facing a Blackhawks team that is sub-500 on the road.
- Chicago is on the back-half of a back-to-back and will be using Crawford tonight, who is the weaker of their two goalies.
- Chicago is struggling to score right now. They are averaging just two goals per game over the last two weeks, and have won just one game in that time.
I like the Canucks to take this one at home.
