Welcome back to another edition of NHL Hockey Picks of the Day. Today we breakdown Thursday's NHL betting lines for some winning NHL picks for our hockey betting.

Anaheim (15-4-1) vs. Tampa Bay (13-5-0) 7:35 PM ET

Play On: Tampa Bay -110

The Tampa Bay Lightning has been the biggest surprise in the Eastern Conference so far this season. They’re off to a 13-5 start and have yet to endure a 2-game losing streak. The Lightning returns home from a successful 2-1 road trip that concluded with a 2-1 overtime shootout win over Montreal. They’ve allowed 2-goals or less in 6 of their last 7-games, and have won 10 of their last 13 overall. The Lightning is 6-1 in their last 7 at the Tampa Bay Times Forum. They will be facing an Anaheim team that will be playing their 10th game on the road in their last 13-games. The home ice will be the difference in a battle of two evenly matched teams. Back the home team for your NHL Pick.

NHL Pick: Tampa Bay -110 over Anaheim

Colorado (14-3-0) vs. St. Louis (11-2-3) 8:05 PM ET

Play On: St. Louis -155

This is a battle of two of the Western Conference true heavyweights. There isn’t a huge element of surprise in the Blues getting off to a successful 11-2-3 start to the season. However, the Avalanche has most definitely been the surprise team in the Western Conference if not the entire NHL with their 14-3 start to the season. The Blues have lost just 1 of their first 10 home games in regulation. This will be their 4th game of a 5-game home stand. St. Louis is an extremely profitable 26-7 at home on the money line the last 3 seasons after play at home in their previous game.

NHL Super System

Any NHL odds home favorite of -120 to -170 that’s playing in the 1st half of the season, and has a winning percentage of .700 or better is 29-6 since the beginning of the 1997-1998 year.

NHL Pick: St. Louis -155 over Colorado
