With only four games slated to take place tonight, we have decided to highlight two from a hockey betting perspective. Which games have we highlighted, and why do we believe that they offer us the most betting value tonight?

Phoenix Coyotes vs. Winnipeg Jets 8:05 PM ET

Phoenix hasn’t seen any of their last 4, and just 1 of their last 6-games has gone under the total. As a matter of fact just 17 of their 44-games this season have gone under the total. The Coyotes have allowed 4-goals or more in 3 of the last 4, and 3-goals or more in 6 of the last 8.

Winnipeg hasn’t gone under the total in any of their previous 5-games. The Jets have gone under the total in just 4 of their last 15-games overall. They’ve allowed 24-goals combined over the last 5-games, and have given up 4-goals or more in each of those contests.

Winnipeg enters tonight’s game having lost their last 5-games in a row. Currently the Jets are 19-28 (.404) versus the money line. After a very strong start to the season the Phoenix Coyotes (21-23) have dipped below the .500 mark on the money line. This sets up a very profitable NHL totals betting system that happens to fall right in line with the NHL odds on offer.

NHL Betting System 

Any home team (Winnipeg) with a total of 5.5 that’s lost their last 4 or more games in a row, they’re playing in the 2nd half of the season, their money line winning percentage on the year is between .400 to .490, versus an opponent with a losing record versus the money line, has seen 34 of those 46-games (74.9%) go over the total since the beginning of the 1996-1997 year.

Free Pick: Phoenix/Winnipeg to go over the total of 5.5

Vancouver Canucks vs. Los Angeles Kings 10:35 PM ET

We head west for the second of our NHL picks tonight, as we are set to witness a battle of two of the best defensive clubs in the NHL. The Kings enter today allowing just 2.0 goals per game which ranks best in the league, while the Canucks are #6 allowing just 2.3 per contest. These division rivals have seen just 4 of their last 19 meetings go over the total, including just 1 of the last 10 played at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. Vancouver has gone over the total in just 14 of 46-games this season, and the Kings have done so in just 13 of their 46-games. 

This will be only the 2nd game in the last 5-days for the Canucks. Vancouver is coming off a 2-1 home win over St. Louis in their previous game. The combination of both of those occurrences sets up a profitable NHL totals betting system.

Any road team that’s playing just their 2nd game in the last 5-days, and their coming off a home win in their previous game, has seen 73 of those 113-games (74.9%) go under the total since the beginning of the 2009-2010 year.

Free Pick: Vancouver/Los Angeles to go under the total of 5.0
