It’s a busy one for NHL bettors on Tuesday with 12 games on the card. Fortunately, this skilled hockey handicappers has got three NHL betting picks from the card.
Edmonton Oilers vs. Philadelphia Flyers
NHL Odds: Flyers -160
No team in the NHL gives up more goals on the road than the Edmonton Oilers, who allow a whopping 5.67 per game. That’s nearly two goals per game worse than anyone else. While it’s hard to be the Oilers when they’re away, taking the over with your NHL picks makes plenty of sense. This is a team that has averaged 8.67 goals per game in their road games this year.
Throw in a Flyers team that allows the eighth-most goals in the NHL this season (3.27) and this figures to be a high-scoring affair.

NHL Odds: Senators -110
The Red Wings have had a tough time generating offense in road games as they’ve totaled just nine in their last four road games. That could be a problem when they visit the Senators on Tuesday night. The Sens have lost four of five but at a closer look, they have still been competitive in their home games. They lost in overtime to the New Jersey Devils and in a shootout to the Chicago Blackhawks. It’s not as if they’re getting run off the ice.
That being the case, take a shot with them here to get back on track. If Detroit can lose on the road in Buffalo – as they did in their most recent game – they can surely lose on the road in Ottawa.

Nashville Predators vs. Winnipeg Jets
NHL Odds: Jets -120
The Jets have pieced together a nice little run with four wins in five games but it just doesn’t feel real. Yes, there are some quality wins in there – like a 1-0 win in Chicago – but this Jets team just isn’t that good overall. They’re a borderline playoff team – at best.
Typically, the first game home after a road trip is always tough, so look for Nashville to have a bit more pep in their step. They have been a reliable bet for most of the season, going 7-2-2 so far. As a road underdog in NHL odds playing in Winnipeg, I’ll take a shot with them. They’re the better team.
