The Buffalo Sabres were struck down by the Boston Bruins 6-2 on Saturday night, but they have four wins in the last five heading into Monday night NHL betting action where they take on the Montreal Canadiens.
The NHL odds at 5Dimes will likely favor Montreal as the home team, but the Sabres are just fine as underdogs against a Canadiens team they have enjoyed success against in the recent past.
Buffalo has won four straight head-to-head and will enjoy plenty of action on the NHL betting lines in this game against the Canadiens. Montreal is also just 1-5 as a favorite this season.
It’s traditionally been low-scoring affairs between these teams and that can be expected again. Totals betting will favor the UNDER wager as they have collected in 10 straight when these teams clash on the NHL betting lines.
The Detroit Red Wings are on a roll with four straight victories, and they were wins against contending teams. St. Louis has won three of the last five and they are coming together, but they will have to rise to the occasion to challenge the soaring Red Wings in NHL betting action on Tuesday night at 5Dimes.
The Blues looked impressive in a 3-0 win on Saturday against Tampa Bay, and will be likely home favorites on the NHL odds board in this contest with Detroit. St. Louis has won three of the last four at home.
Totals betting should be very active in this matchup with nine of the previous 10 head-to-head sending OVER bettors to the payout window.
Chicago will be road underdogs in the odds at 5Dimes for their Wednesday night tilt against the Vancouver Canucks in NHL betting action.
The Blackhawks had a small blip that saw them drop three straight, but they responded with back-to-back victories. Vancouver has a win and a loss since last playing Chicago, when they defeated the Blackhawks 6-2 in convincing fashion.
The NHL lines will be drawing plenty of attention from both sides of the betting coin with these two teams playing one another.
