The Ottawa Senators will face off against the Pittsburgh Penguins in NHL betting action on Tuesday night this week.
Pittsburgh could be in danger of falling out of a playoff position for the first time this season if they don’t start to pile up some wins, losing four of their last five. The Senators have gone the other way as they now sit fifth in the Eastern Conference, and Ottawa has reeled off four victories in their last five games.
These teams have split a pair of games this season with the home team picking up the win in both contests. Despite the Penguins being labelled as favorites in this matchup at 5Dimes, bettors can expect plenty of action on the NHL betting lines in favor of Ottawa.
Three straight and eight of the last 10 head-to-head meetings have made winners of OVER bettors in totals betting.
Vancouver has been making some serious noise in the Western Conference with a 7-2-1 record in the past 10 games heading into Monday's action, and that has sent them to the top of the standings. The Canucks will take on the Tampa Bay Lightning in NHL betting action on Tuesday.
The Lightning haven't seen much of their explosive offense this season as they come off a three-game road trip where they lost each matchup. Tampa Bay will be glad to be home where they won back-to-back before heading out on the road, and visiting Vancouver has been a victim to the Lightning in two straight head-to-head.
Seven of the last 10 games between Vancouver and Tampa Bay have sent OVER bettors to the payout window in totals betting.
In an interesting NHL betting matchup on Wednesday the surging New Jersey Devils could pose a threat to the Edmonton Oilers. These teams rarely play each other, but it was the Devils who took the only encounter last season.
