    Best NHL Picks Tonight April 4, 2017

    Washington @ Toronto NHL Odds

    My Team's Next MatchToronto Maple Leafs

    Toronto enters action tonight sitting in 2nd place in the Atlantic Division, but still needing four points (or two wins) in the standings to ensure they are still playing hockey once the regular season is over. All four of Toronto's final games are at home which is a huge plus, but with Eastern Conference leaders like Washington, Columbus, and Pittsburgh as three of those opponents, it will be anything but easy. Throw in a game against a Tampa Bay team they are trying to fend off in the standings, and Toronto has to continue to play solid hockey all the way to the finish line. 

    Washington is looking to clinch 1st place in the East and the top overall seed in the league during these final days, and would love to break the trend of the home team winning in the two previous games between these two clubs this season. The Capitals have been atop the East for most of the season and clinching that Metropolitan Division title is the first goal they'd like to achieve. 

    Toronto is in the tougher spot tonight given they played in Buffalo 24 hours ago, and if the young Leafs really want to experience a taste of what playoff hockey is all about these final four games should wet their appetite. However, with no rest (20-41 SU last 61 times without rest), a backup goalie in McElhinny between the pipes, and a huge lookahead spot with that Tampa Bay game on deck, this is not a game a bettor should be looking to do anything but bet against Toronto. 


    Best NHL Bets Tonight | April 4, 2017

    With the eight playoff teams in the West confirmed and left to battle for positioning, it's the Eastern Conference and their intense playoff races that bettors should be more focused on during this final week or so of NHL action. Tonight it's a big betting board with 13 games on the card, so aside from backing Washington at Toronto, here are a few other strong plays you should definitely consider. 

    This is the latter half of a home-and-home between the two after Detroit took the first game 5-4 via the shootout. Ottawa has really struggled of late and needs a strong defensive effort to keep pace with Toronto and the others they are battling in the Atlantic. The price is too steep on the Sens ML, but expect fewer goals then we saw yesterday. 

    Philadelphia was officially eliminated from playoff contention with a loss in their last game and now after pushing hard for weeks to have a chance, that bubble of hope to get in has been popped in a hurry. It's hard to believe that the Flyers will be motivated in any sense tonight and with the Devils having lost six in a row, including their last one to these same Flyers, look for New Jersey to want to finish the year on a high note. 

    The Islanders basically have to win out and get some help to sneak into the playoffs and to do that they'll need to be ultra-aggressive the rest of the way. With Nashville guaranteed a spot in April hockey somewhere, things should be quite open on the ice throughout the night.
