NHL betting is heating up as the season hurtles towards the finishline. Here we have a treble of NHL picks to spot on the day’s round of NHL betting.

Nashville Predators vs. Vancouver Canucks
The Nashville Predators look to bounce back at the expense of the Vancouver Canucks after slipping to their third defeat in the last ten games. The Predators lost to the Flames 3-2 in overtime on Wednesday, a defeat that snapped a two-game winning streak going into the clash. Nevertheless, the Predators enter their upcoming date on the NHL odds board as the clear-cut faves, anywhere from -164 to -180 NHL odds depending on your sportsbook of choice. That market outlook is underlined mainly by the poor form of the hosts. The Canucks are merely 4-6-0 in their last ten games. Although they are coming off a win over the Arizona Coyotes on Wednesday, winning 3-2 in overtime at the Rogers Arena, NHL bettors have to appreciate the win is hardly anything to cheer about. Consider the Coyotes’ form was just as bad, if not worse. As a result, Canucks are at the serious disadvantage to win outright with NHL odds trading from +150 to +160. It’s going to be a tough ask to upset the visiting Predators, who are in the pursuit of a playoff spot and, currently, have the advantage in the standings.

NJ Devils vs. LA Kings
Los Angeles Kings are riding a two-game winning streak into their home date with the NJ Devils. A run of form that sees them improve to 7-2-1 in their last ten games. Overall, they are a solid 21-11-1 at home this season, a record that underscores their firm NHL odds to win at the expense of the Devils tonight. NHL bettors can back the Kings at -244 at Pinnacle, which is the current best price available on the NHL odds board. The Devils are wholly off form and off colour at the moment. Riding a 3-7-0 mark in their last ten games any contrarian value in the upset is a long shot NHL pick. The Devils did stun NHL betting markets with a 3-0 win over the San Jose Sharks on Thursday night, but they’re going to be hard pressed to repeat the result in Los Angeles.

Washington Capitals vs. San Jose Sharks
The Sharks are coming off an embarrassing loss to the Devils at home on Thursday night, a loss that sees them slipping to a 6-3-1 mark in their last ten games. The loss was something of an upset on the NHL odds board, few would have predicted, and the timing of it couldn’t be any worse. Ahead of their date with NHL heavyweights Washington Capitals. The Capitals are a country mile ahead of the rest of the field in the league with a 49-13-5 record on the season and 103 points, which includes an impressive 26-6-2 mark at home and an equally impressive 27-7-3 mark on the road. Granted the Capitals are coming off a loss to the Los Angeles Kings in overtime, a 4-3 defeat that snapped a two-game road winning streak, but the Kings are tough to beat at home. The Sharks are an entirely different kettle of fish, pun intended. The best bit for NHL bettors here is there doesn’t seem to be consensus in the market on this game, with some books installing the Capitals as slight road faves while others installing them as slight road underdogs. Take the Capitals as the slight road underdogs every day of the week on your NHL picks, that’s what we say.
