NHL Best Bets: August 8
Andrew Dewhirst brings you his best bets for today's NHL slate.
Philadelphia Flyers vs Tampa Bay Lightning 8 pm EST
The Flyers have looked great so far, as have the Lightning. I expect this to be a close game, so I’m taking the Flyers with the goals, and I wouldn’t be surprised for the Flyers to win this game straight up.
Pick: Flyers +1.5 -210
Vegas Golden Knights vs Colorado Avalanche 3 pm EST
Both Vegas and Colorado are 2-0 coming in today’s final round robin game for the Western Conference. Colorado has looked really sharp in both of their wins (2-1 over St Louis, 4-0 over Dallas), and while Vegas has won both of their games, neither of which fit their normal play style. I look for Colorado to win this one today.
Pick: Avalanche -115
