Thursday Night Hockey: 12/7/2017

Editor’s Note: This is Casey Sefton’s first post on Bettor than Half where he will take a look at the marquee hockey games in the NHL and offer his advice on the Vegas lines.

Arizona Coyotes @ Boston Bruins

MoneyLine: Bruins -225 | Coyotes +175

Game Total: 5.5 (Over: -105 | Under:  -125)

Goalies: Rask vs. Wedgewood

Rask is definitely waking up after his very slow start, coming off two big wins (Tampa and Philly) as well as a relief appearance verse Nashville, where he stopped 11 of 12 shots keeping the bruins in the game.

NY Islanders @ Pittsburgh Penguins

Money Line: Islanders +115 | Penguins -145

Total: 6.5 (Over: -105 | Under: -125)

Goalies: TBD

It is not often that I would actually take a 6.5 over but both of these teams have been playing in high scoring games. Five of the last seven of the Pens games have gone over 6.5 and six of the last seven Islander games have gone over 6.5. These teams do not enjoy defense so I can see this game being a shoot out.

Calgary Flames @ Montreal Canadiens

ML: Flames +150 | Canadiens -170

Total: 5.5 (Over: -120 | Under: Even)

Goalies: Price vs TBD

Other than Prices last start, letting up 4 vs the Blues, he has been on fire. I see him getting back in the win column tonight.

Pick ’em:

The following games are my gut feelings but by now means confident in the outcomes.

Colorado +215 @ Tampa Bay -225

Winnipeg Jets -125 @ Florida +105

Dallas +135 @ St. Louis -155

Philadelphia (even) @ Vancouver -120

Ottawa +175 @ Los Angeles -210

Carolina +110 @ San Jose -130
