Game Picks: Moneyline

Justin Rosser February 17, 2021

FLA(+115) VS CAR(-135)

Starting goalies:

Chris Driedger(FLA)

Alex Nedeljkovic(CAR)

My pick: Carolina Hurricanes

Summary: This one was extremely hard for me to choose who will come out on top. Not to mention James Reimer is riding the pine for tonight’s matchup. Florida is coming off another huge win against Tampa Bay and look to compete for first or second place in the Central division, tied in the rankings, Carolina and Florida both have 20 points through 13 games. This pick could go either way, I just feel like Carolina is the better team through the top 3 lines, with Stall playing the best hockey in his career. Look to see a 4-3 score line and possibly OT in this one.

OTT(+260) VS TOR(-320)

Starting goalies:

Matt Murray(OTT)

Frederik Anderson(TOR)

My pick: Toronto Maple Leafs

Summary: This is a revenge game of sorts; I think Toronto is going to pummel Ottawa tonight. The Leafs took their foot off the gas against the lowly Senators and it bit them in the _ _ _. Ottawa coming from behind set a record for best comeback in their franchise history against Toronto, you better believe the  Leafs will be playing a full 60 minutes tonight and with superior talent, they should get the Win.

CHI(-140) VS DET(+120)

Starting goalies:

Kevin Lankinen(CHI)

Jonathan Bernier(DET)

My pick: Chicago Blackhawks

Summary: The Blackhawks have won 5 of their last 6, while Detroit has won 2 of their last 6. Look to see that great PP of the Hawks do well and take care of the Red Wings.

VAN(+135) VS CGY(-155)

Starting goalies:

Braden Holtby(VAN)

Jacob Markstrom(CGY)

My pick: Calgary Flames

Summary: This one will be another close match up, I feel like the easy difference is the goaltending. Markstrom has been fantastic this year for the flames and I think that will be the difference in the game as Vancouver has been scored on way too much this year.

WPG(+125) VS EDM(-145)

Starting goalies:

Mike Smith(EDM)

Connor Hellebuyck(WPG)

My pick: Edmonton Oilers

Summary: Mike Smith is a warrior, he plays with heart, after getting pulled last game I suspect he will be playing with extra fire. With the Jets winning 6-5 recently against the Oilers, I could see a lower scoring game as goalies make some better stops. Defenseman Ethan Bear was supposed to be back for the Oilers, but had a minor setback; Give me Connor McDavid and Leon Draisatl to hit big on the PP tonight and get the win for the Oilers.
