It's time for another day of NHL Picks this MLK day as we have hockey from 1:00 PM until 9:00 PM. Today we have two games that are bound to make you some money.
Arizona Coyotes @ Edmonton Oilers [-1.5] - (+130)
The Oilers host the second worst team in the league in the Arizona Coyotes and I feel this game is going to get ugly for the away team. The reason I am going with the Oilers -1.5 are the contrast in their offensive stats, the Oilers have scored 128 goals, and the Coyotes have only scored 90 this entire season. The Coyotes aren't just bad going forward as they are also bad at the back as they are 29th in the NHL in goals against and 27th in penalty kill in the NHL. The Oilers may not be a defensive powerhouse, but they have a decent defense as they are 14th in the NHL. Every sign is pointing to a huge Oilers win, and that's exactly what we are going with. Oilers to win 4-1.
Winnipeg Jets @ San Jose Sharks - (-200)
The Jets are on a three-game losing streak as they are having issue coping without their star Patrik Laine. The Jets aren't a great team away from home but the biggest factor in who will win this game; are the defensive stats of both teams. The Jets have conceded 40 goals more than the Sharks which is a huge issue as the Sharks are a great team at home. The Sharks also have the fourth-best goals against in the NHL and the Jets are 25th. I think this game will be close, and you need to stay away from the spread, but the Sharks are too good at home, and without Laine I can't see the Jets giving the Sharks defense any problems. Sharks to win 3-1.
