Free NHL Picks October 8th, 2015

Sport Betting Canadian Hockey MascotIt’s the first big night of the NHL season with 7 games on the slate!  Last night I eased my way into my NHL betting season, by taking the over 5.5 in the Flames vs Canucks game, which hit late in the third period thanks to the Sedin brothers.  I posted that pick on the NHL Betting Tips Facebook page, which is a hockey specific site that I run as well.  I’ll be trying to post the picks at Sports Betting Canadian every day as well, but if you want to ensure that you get my daily picks, I suggest liking the NHL Betting Tips FB page and also adding your name to the mailing list on the home page of NHLBettingTips.com.

Now, on to today’s plays.  I have a few for you guys right out of the gate.

Winnipeg Jets @ Boston Bruins

You’re likely going to see me fading the Bruins quite a bit in the early season.  I just don’t think this Bruins team has much to offer anymore.  Just looking at their lineup and you see it leaves a lot to be desired.  The Jets on the other hand are moving the right direction and I expect them to have another solid year.

Play: Jets 2.10 @ PinnacleSports.com

Carolina Hurricanes @ Nashville Predators

I don’t see how the Hurricanes could possibly be a decent team this year.  I’m expecting them to sit around the basement of the Eastern Conference for the entire season and I’m looking at them as a great spot to play their opponents players in daily fantasy hockey.  I could see the Preds running up the score in this one.

Play: Predators (-1.5) 2.65 @ 5Dimes.eu

Pittsburgh Penguins @ Dallas Stars

I’ve got to see if the Stars can keep the puck out of their net this season and they kick things off with a huge test in that department against the Penguins.  I’m not sure this will be as high scoring a game as everyone seems to think, but I would be shocked if the Pens didn’t put up at least 3 goals in this one.  Anytime I can take the Penguins as a dog against a defense as poor as the Stars I’ll be all over it.

Play: Penguins 2.05 @ 5Dimes.eu

I’ll be getting posts up for NHL games whenever there is a big slate, but to get all my picks be sure to sign up at NHLBettingTips.com.
