NHL Best Bets - March 2, 2017

Toronto @ Los Angeles NHL Preview

My Team's Next MatchToronto Maple Leafs

Toronto coughed up a solid chance to at least get a point in San Jose the other night when the Sharks scored the go-ahead goal with under two minutes left. The Leafs may have got what they deserved, as they were dominated for big chunks of that contest, and things won't be any easier for them in L.A. The Kings didn't hide the fact that they were gearing up for one more playoff run with the deadline moves they made, and all the new faces should be involved tonight. 

Even with all those moves, the Kings enter as -155 favourites tonight but they really don't have the look of a team worth those odds at the moment. L.A has dropped 7 of their past 10 games overall and with G Jonathan Quick getting used to NHL life again, there will be some suspect nights defensively for the Kings. Quick's last game (2nd start overall) was an ugly one in Minnesota and spotting this aggressive Leafs team an early lead is not a good path to success. But the Kings own revamped offense should be up to the task as the Kings are 1-0-5 O/U in their last six at home and this game has all the potential to be another high-scoring affair.

Best NHL Bets Tonight | March 2, 2017

Getting a high-scoring game between the Leafs and Kings tonight isn't the only good NHL action to get in on tonight as it's a heavy board with nine other games on the schedule. Here are a few other NHL free picks that should send you to collect your bet more often than not. 

  • Nashville Predators ML (+110) - Montreal was able to get Shea Weber a win in his return to Nashville earlier this year and the Predators should find a way to do that for P.K Subban in his return to Montreal tonight. The Predators are 8-3 SU in their last 11 against a winning opponent and should extend their winning streak to five.
  • Nashville/Montreal Over 5 (-145) - Along those same lines, that first meeting in Nashville finished 2-1 and we should see a few more goals scored tonight. Both sides are anxious to show off their new acquisitions up front and with Montreal goalie Carey Price still struggling, a 3-2 game isn't much to ask for as at least a push. 
  • New York Islanders ML (+110) - Dallas got the signal from management that this season is looking like a lost cause and it's only a matter of time before the players start to show it on the ice. The Islanders are coming off an embarrassing 7-0 loss in Columbus and reclaim some of their professional pride with a strong bounce back performance.
