Let’s break down each of the legs one by one.

Carolina Hurricanes ML over the Boston Bruins (-135)

The Carolina Hurricanes have started the season off 5-0-0, outscoring their opponents 22-8. They’re one of the most well-rounded teams in the league and should fare well against a mediocre Bruins team that has scored 15 and allowed 15 goals through 5 games. The Canes are allowing only 1.6 goals per game, the best in the league so far while scoring more than 4 goals per game. They’ve also been generating 35 shots per game. If the Hurricanes can continue to outshoot their opponents, they’ll likely be able to outscore them.

Over their last 2 games, the Hurricanes have allowed only 2 goals overall. They have one of the best defensive cores in the league and are getting consistent goaltending from Frederick Andersen. The Bruins have been fairly inconsistent in the net. With Jeremy Swayman confirmed, the Canes could expose his 3.03 GAA and .885 SVP. Take the Hurricanes on the money line.

Tampa Bay Lightning -1.5 over the Arizona Coyotes (-125)

The Arizona Coyotes are 0-5-1 to start the season. Bettors should continue to fade them until they prove us wrong. They’ve averaged only 1.83 goals per game, the second-worst in the league while allowing 4.83 goals per game, the worst in the league. Going up against the 2-time Stanley Cup champions could be their toughest task yet this season despite the Lightning’s underwhelming start. Goaltender Ivan Prosvetov is getting his first start of the season for the Coyotes and only the fourth start in his NHL career. Through 3 games last season Prosvetov allowed 4.15 goals per game while posting an .842 SVP. Arizona could be throwing him to the wolves in this matchup.

Through 6 games, the Coyotes haven’t really shown any signs of life. Take the Lightning on the puck line against the worst team in hockey.

Minnesota Wild ML over the Seattle Kraken (-115)

The Minnesota Wild have lost just 1 game this season, these are relatively good odds considering their opponent. The Kraken haven’t been bad this season but they’ve been nowhere close to the Wild. Cam Talbot is expected to start for Minnesota and he’s gone 5-0-0 to start the season with a 2.55 GAA. The Kraken’s goaltender, Philipp Grubauer, has been posting a 3.28 GAA and .883 SVP. If this one turns into a goalie duel, the Wild have the upper hand. Additionally, the Wild are 3-0-0 on the road this season, they’ll be looking to make it 4 road wins in a row in Seattle tonight.

Minnesota has had great scoring depth this season with 5 players having 4 or more points through 6 games. That has allowed them to average 3.33 goals per game, tied for the 10th-most in the league this year. They’ve scored 20 goals through 6 games while the Kraken have scored only 18 through 7 games. Take the Wild on the money line.

Winnipeg Jets ML over the Los Angeles Kings (-105)

Jets backup Eric Comrie is the confirmed starter for tonight’s game, but that shouldn’t steer bettors away. The Jets offense should be enough to carry them over the finish line. Drew Doughty, the Kings’ number one defensemen who logs more than 23 minutes of ice time a night has been ruled out for the foreseeable future with a lower body injury. The missing defensemen should free up Winnipeg’s top 6 skaters; maybe one of the best top sixes in the league. This game could turn into a shootout, but the Jets have way more weapons with the experience to back it up. The Kings have just 1 win on the season and it was their season opener — they’ve lost 5 games in a row.

The Jets are on a 3-game winning streak and seem to be hitting their stride. They’re averaging 4 goals a game while the Kings who are averaging just 2.33 goals per game. Winnipeg has a 14.3% shooting percentage. If their offense can keep firing they should win this one, so take them on the money line tonight.
