Now let’s get to it.
Flames ML (+118)
Avalanche -1.5 (+104)
Jets/Coyotes under 5.5 (-106)
Calgary Flames ML (+118) over Florida Panthers
The Calgary Flames are in the middle of a 5-game road trip and have absolutely dominated both teams they’ve faced, outscoring their opponents 11-5 in those 2 games. Offensively, the advantage goes to the Panthers. They rank 2nd in just about every offensive category, which includes averaging 3.78 goals per game. The Flames aren’t that far off, as they still rank 10th in goals per game and 7th in expected goals per game.
Defensively, however, the advantage goes to the Flames. They rank 2nd in just about every defensive category, which has them allowing 2.23 goals against per game. The Panthers, on the other hand, are an average defensive team at best — ranking around the middle of the pack in goals allowed and goals against per game. The Flames have what it takes to slow down the Panthers’ high-octane offense, and there is solid value with the plus-money.

Colorado Avalanche -1.5 (+104) over Chicago Blackhawks
The Colorado offense continues to fire on all cylinders, as the Avs lead the league in scoring at 4.21 goals per game. They also lead the league in goals per game on the road (3.79), so the road conditions shouldn’t phase them too much in this one. The Avs are also visiting a building win which they have seen success lately, winning 4 of their last 5 games against the Blackhawks at the United Center.
On the other side, the Blackhawks may be dealing with some fatigue. Chicago played a back-to-back on Saturday and Sunday, and this will be its third game in 4 days. That is not an ideal situation in any game, but the fatigue factor is enhanced when going up against Colorado’s high-flying offense. The Avs are getting major contributions from their top players; Nathan MacKinnon has 17 points on a 10-game point streak, Mikko Rantanen has 14 points on a 7-game streak, and Nazem Kadri has 14 points on an 8-game streak. The Blackhawks may have a tough time keeping up in this one. Take the Avs on the -1.5 puck line.

Jets vs Coyotes under 5.5 (-106)
The over has cashed in 3 of the last 4 games the Coyotes have played — which includes their last 2 that had totals of 11 and 15, respectively. Expect some regression with these numbers as the Coyotes are the worst offensive team in the league and will be facing a top-10 goalie in Connor Hellebuyck in this matchup against the Jets. Winnipeg applies great pressure offensively, ranking 7th in expected goals for, but they often do not finish their chances. The Jets rank right around the league average in terms of goals for and goals for per game. Negative regression for Arizona and lack of finishing from Winnipeg could yield a low-scoring game in this contest.
