    NHL Best Bets - March 16, 2017

    NHL Best Bets - March 16, 2017

    Chicago @ Ottawa NHL Preview

    My Team's Next MatchOttawa Senators

    Both Chicago and Ottawa enter tonight's game playing some very good hockey as Chicago has won eight of their past 10 games, while Ottawa had a six-game winning streak snapped with a 2-1 loss last time out. Both teams are playoff bound next month but with each team currently fighting for 1st place in their respective divisions, the two points up for grabs tonight are critical. 

    Chicago comes in as a slight road favourite this evening, but it was Ottawa who beat them 4-3 in the first meeting back in late-December. There is no question that the Senators are a better team now than they were then, but backing teams in their first game after getting a significant winning streak snapped is usually a losing proposition. Chicago is 5-0 SU in their last five against a winning foe, 9-1 SU in their last 10 on the road, and a phenomenal 6-0 SU when playing their third game in four nights. Lack of rest may be an issue for most teams in the NHL, but that's simply not the case with this Chicago team.

    Best NHL Bets Tonight | March 16, 2017

    There are plenty of other NHL games bettors can get down on this evening and as always here at sportsbettingreviews.ca, we've broken down the rest of the board and isolated a few other strong wagers that should end up in the winner's circle by night's end. 

    • Winnipeg Jets ML (+110) - The Jets were embarrassed by the Islanders in their first meeting (6-2) and with NYI likely being a little tired after playing nine of 10 on the road, rolling with the visitors as underdogs tonight is the better play. 
    • Toronto Maple Leafs ML (+100) - Toronto is another team that got embarrassed in their last outing against Florida and head across the state to take on a Tampa team that is ready to pack it in for the year in the coming days. 
    • Edmonton Oilers ML (-115) - Boston was able to snap Calgary's 10-game winning streak last night, but visitors trying to sweep the Alberta stretch (Calgary/Edmonton) on consecutive nights fail more often than not and the Oilers are more than capable of putting together a winning performance against the best team in the NHL according to advanced analytics.
