Wager Alarm NHL Best Bets: February 17
Andrew Dewhirst brings you his best bets for today's NHL slate.
Calgary Flames (-1.5) vs Anaheim Ducks
Calgary won their meeting last week 6-0 in Anaheim. At home tonight, I don’t look for it to be as lopsided, but the Ducks are expected to go with Ryan Miller tonight, and the Ducks have been awful on the road this year. Calgary should win this one and cover.
Washington Capitals at Vegas Golden Knights
The Capitals have been road warriors all year, with a 21-8 record on the road. Vegas, on the other hand, is just ok at home (16-14). Vegas has won their last two home games, but I look for that streak to end tonight, as the Capitals haven’t lost back to back road games all year.
Under 6 goals - Tampa Bay Lightning at Colorado Avalanche
While this game features three of the premier scorers in the league, it also features two goalies who have been among the best as well. Both Andrei Vasilevsiy and Phillipp Grubauer have GAA’s below 1.65 over the last two weeks. I look for defense to win out here, and I am taking the under.
This Season 4-4
