We are just about at the midway point of the 2022-23 National Hockey League campaign. Die-hard hockey fans have been treated to nonstop action, thrills, joy, despair, and heartbreak as they cheer on their favorite teams and players.
Tonight, in addition to the jam-packed drama that is the NHL, we’re super excited to bring you two betting plays sure to win you some money.
Without further ado, let’s meet our best bets for Monday, Jan. 9, 2023.
Best Bet No. 1: Buffalo Sabres -1.5 (+115)
I locked this bet in fairly early, and since then, the line has dropped to +105. Once again, we see the importance of being proactive and staying one step ahead of prospective markets and sportsbooks.
The Buffalo Sabres have been rolling as of late and have clawed their way back into the Eastern Conference playoff picture. Tonight, Tage Thompson and co. take on a floundering Philadelphia Flyers team that will be playing on the second night of a back-to-back. If this Sabres squad is serious about playing meaningful hockey in the spring, this is a game they absolutely need to win. Well-rested and playing some real good hockey, I think the Sabres roll this evening. At plus money (+115), this one looks like highway larceny. Don’t hesitate; ride with Buffalo at -1.5 tonight.
Best Bet No. 2: Predators-Senators OVER 6.0 (-110)
Although the line has stayed the same, the odds (as of right now) slightly dropped to -115. With this being said, you’re getting this game at solid value for what sportsbooks predict will likely exceed six total goals between the two teams.
Despite their high-flying offense led by the likes of Drake Batherson, Claude Giroux, Brady Tkachuk, and Alex Debrincat, the Ottawa Senators continue to struggle on the defensive side of the puck. Coming off Saturday’s tilt against the Seattle Kraken that saw them give up an eight-spot should be Exhibit A for prospective bettors. Tonight, they take on the Nashville Predators, who have gone 6-2-2 (.600) over their past 10 games played. Don’t overthink this one. Lock in the over as soon as you can.
