NHL Betting Betting: Top Weekday Games January 24-27

NHL Betting Betting Top Weekday Games January 24-27

The National Hockey League can be incredibly unforgiving for teams that stumble out of the gate. Consider the plight of the Islanders this year. New York is playing its best hockey of the season with the NHL betting odds. However, New York is paying the price for falling flat on its face out of the gate. Although the Islanders are on fire, they are also 16 points out of a playoff spot. This is not how the New York brass hoped to usher in the new era at UBS Arena.

Late on, the Golden Knights are on sports betting cooler with five losses in their last seven games. Vegas is 4-2-1 over the total in their most recent seven games. VGK stands at 24-15-2 with 25-14 over the total. Of great concern is the inconsistent goaltending of Robin Lehner this year.

In like manner, the Capitals are 3-6 in their last ten games. Four of their previous six games cleared the total. Washington is 23-10-9 with 22-18 over the total.

Vegas will get a favorable price on the road against the erratic and unreliable Capitals.

Best Bet: Vegas Golden Knights.

New Jersey has lost four of their previous six NHL betting matchups. And then the Devils are 2-5 under the total in their last five. New Jersey Devils stands at 15-19-5 with 22-15 over the total.

In a similar way, the Stars have dropped three of their last five outings. In their most recent six games, Dallas is 5-1 over the total. The Stars are 20-16-2 with 16-22 under the total. Dallas is three points out of the final Western Conference playoff spot.

In this situation, the Devils lack the goal scoring to rate a recommendation against the solid Stars defense.

Best Bet: Dallas Stars

Once upon a time, the Blackhawks and Red Wings were one of the hottest rivalries in the game. But Detroit moved to the Eastern Conference several years ago, creating a buzzkill of infrequent matchups.

Late on, the Blackhawks have been a roller coaster ride. Chicago has lost three in a row after winning four straights. The Blackhawks are 15-19-7 with 18-18 over and under.

Overall, Detroit is 18-18-6 and has dropped six of their last eight.

Best Bet: Chicago Blackhawks

Los Angeles has lost three in a row after winning six of their previous seven. Now the Kings are 20-16-5 with 15-25 under the total. As a result of their improved play, the Kings are in a Western Conference playoff position.

In turn, the Islanders are one of the hottest teams on the board. New York has won six of its previous eight games. The Islanders have a record of 14-14-6 with 11-22 under the total. Of great concern is the terrible start to the season for the Isles. New York remains 16 points out of the final Eastern Conference spot.

On this occasion, the Kings will offer more value as the road team. Also, these teams are extremely defensive in orientation.

Best Bet: Los Angeles Kings and Under The Total.
