NHL Best Bets: August 2
Andrew Dewhirst brings you his best bets for Sunday August 2nd
Philadelphia Flyers vs Boston Bruins, 3 pm EST
The Flyers looked very good against Pittsburgh in their exhibition game, and Boston has some concerns. With Kase still unavailable, and both Rask and Pastrnak missed significant portions of summer training camp. I think this all comes around to a good chance for Philly to take this game.
Pick: Flyers +115
Columbus Blue Jackets vs Toronto Maple Leafs, 8pm EST
The Blue Jackets are going to play the Maple Leafs very tightly, let's not forget what they did to the Lightning in the first round last year. I will take the spread here to play it safe, as I could see Toronto still winning, but I doubt its by more than a goal.
Pick: Blue Jackets +1.5 -180
