Let’s break down each of the legs one by one.
Toronto Maple Leafs -1.5 over the Philadelphia Flyers (+190)
This game between the Leafs and Flyers could come down to goaltending, which should mean Toronto has the edge. Jack Campbell has been the confirmed starter for Toronto and in four of his last five games, he has allowed just two goals or less. After a rocky start to the season for the Leafs, they have finally seemed to have found their footing winning five of their last six games. After an embarrassing loss on Sunday night, expect them to get back into the win column and Campbell should have a bounce back night. In the opposing net is goaltender Carter Hart who has had a respectable start to the season sharing similar averages as Campbell, however, in four of his last five games, he’s allowed three or more goals. This could be a close game depending on the goaltenders’ performances, but based on how the goaltenders have been trending, Campbell should have the edge.
If the Leafs can maintain the lead, the odds of them covering the spread could be likely with either an empty net goal or even from their abundance of offensive weapons. In two of their last three wins, they’ve covered the spread by getting excellent offense from their top two lines. After splitting up Auston Matthews and Mitch Marner, both of them have finally started to produce with a combined 19 points in their last six games. Take Toronto on the puck line.

Nashville Predators ML over the Dallas Stars (+130)
Surprisingly, the Nashville Predators are underdogs in this game. Oddsmakers could be looking too much into the Preds’ 2-1 overtime loss to Chicago in their last game. For us, that loss is all the more reason to bet the Preds tonight. They need to show the hockey world that losing to one of the worst teams in the league was a fluke, and it probably was. Most of that loss could be attributed to the new coaching change in Chicago, it was the Blackhawks’ first game with a new voice behind the bench and the team probably rallied. The Predators still have a winning record this year and are getting excellent goaltending from Juuse Saros, who’s posting a 2.31 GAA and .925 SVP. Against a Dallas team that struggles to produce offense, Saros should be able to win this game for the Predators.
Dallas is averaging just 2.18 goals per game this season, the third worst in the league. Going up against a potential Vezina candidate goalie tonight could prove to be a difficult challenge for a team that’s already struggling to score. In Saros’ last five games he’s allowed just two or fewer goals. Take the Predators on the money line here.

Minnesota Wild -1.5 over the Arizona Coyotes (+125)
After losing 11 consecutive games, the Arizona Coyotes grabbed their first win of the season on Saturday night in the dying minutes of the third period. Don’t put too much stock into that result though, it was against the newest franchise, the Seattle Kraken who isn’t having a particularly great start to the season themselves. Tonight, the Coyotes will likely lose to a superior opponent in the Minnesota Wild. The Wild are putting together an excellent start to the season that some bettors could be overlooking. They’re 8-3-0 to start the season in one of the tougher divisions in hockey. They’ve got timely goaltending from Cam Talbot, who’s 7-2-0 posting a 2.85 GAA and 9.04 SVP, and they’ve had excellent depth scoring from all four lines. Ten players on the Wild have five or more points through 11 games played. Russian superstar Kirill Kaprizov has nine points in 11 games and is looking to get back to being a point-per-game player in the NHL. Expect a big night from him against the worst team in hockey.
Minnesota is currently on a three game win streak and I don’t think they want the Coyotes to spoil this run they’re on. They’re scoring 3.27 goals per game and producing the most shots on goal in the entire league with 36.5 a game. Arizona is currently allowing the most goals per game with four. Take the Wild on the spread tonight, they should easily cover.
