NHL Best Bets August 26th, 2020

 

New York Islanders vs Philadelphia Flyers 3PM EST

The line on the over/under for this game seems crazy to me. The Islanders have scored at least 4 goals in each of their meetings with the Flyers this year, and I can’t see the Flyers getting shut out in back-to-back games. I think the Flyer’s second line will wake up, and we see five or more goals tonight.

Pick: Over 4.5 (-150)

 

Colorado Avalanche vs Dallas Stars 10:30PM EST

Dallas has now beat Colorado six times this year, and they lead this series 2-0. While it would appear that the Stars have the Avalanche’s number this year, I think Colorado’s second line will appear again tonight, and the Avs will pick up the win.

Pick: Colorado -140
