NHL Best Bets August 16th, 2020

Andrew Dewhirst


Washington Capitals vs New York Islanders 12:00 PM EST

In the two games so far the Islanders have won 4-2 and 5-2. They will get last change today, and if the Capitals want to stay in this series they will need a better performance from Braden Holtby today, and they will need to find a way to score more than two goals. I think we will see another 4-2 type game today.

Pick: Over 5.5


Philadelphia Flyers vs Montreal Canadians 8 PM EST

I am going to take the under here again. The last game didn’t go as expected with Montreal winning 5-0, and I would be surprised if we saw another 5-0 game. I expect we will normalize to a 3-2 affair today.

Pick: Under 5.5
