DailyFaceoff/Corsica NHL Bets (December 6th)

Updated: December 6, 2018 at 4:55 pm by Dylan Berthiaume

The NHL Corsica betting predictions saw its hot streak come to an abrupt end on Wednesday at the hands of the Sharks’ potent offense. Forever a believer in the Hurricanes’ dominant numbers at 5v5, Corsica had Carolina covering a +1.5-goal spread as the most probable bet on last night’s slate. A dominant first couple of periods from San Jose put that bet to bed early, as the Sharks carried a 4-1 lead into third. It appeared for a moment that Corsica’s night would be salvaged by their high-value bet, but a late third-period goal from Marcus Sorensen made it a 5-1 final. With Corsica selecting the over/under of 5.5 goals in that game as its high-value bet, this post suffered its first 0-2 night in over three weeks.

With so many spots to choose from on tonight’s 11-game slate, Corsica should have no problem turning in a bounce-back performance tonight. I’ve highlighted their highest probability and highest value bets below to help guide you through tonight’s busy schedule. Good luck!

Highest Probability

Devils @ Kings – Spread | LAK +1.5 (-284)

According to Corsica, at a whopping 74.14%, the Kings covering a +1.5-goal spread against the Devils is by far the most probable bet on tonight’s slate. Considering New Jersey’s struggles of late, it’s a little surprising to see them favoured against the Kings on the road, but the stigma of being the league’s worst team can be a tough one to shake. Fortunately for LA, their dormant offense should get a boost tonight against one of the worst defensive teams of the early season. The Kings’ 2.07 goals per game is by far the lowest in the league, but the Devils are averaging the fourth-most goals against at 3.50. After a nightmare of a start to the season, Anze Kopitar’s line is slowly starting to come into form. They’re not quite the offensive threat they were last season, but they should generate enough chances to keep this game close.

Jonathan Quick is also starting to look more like himself of late. He’s posted a .943 SV% in the three games he’s played since returning from injury. The Devils are averaging the sixth-most shots per game in the NHL, so Quick’s sharp play will need to continue if this bet is going to come to fruition.

Highest Value

Canadiens @ Senators – Over/Under | Under 6.5 (+115)

Corsica’s enjoyed great success betting on the under in games featuring the Senators lately, and they’re going back to the well again tonight. With a 62.62% chance of hitting, no bet will offer you better value on tonight’s slate than the Habs and Sens finishing under 6.5 goals. If you’re a frequent reader of this post, you know Corsica is not a believer in Ottawa’s offense, to put it lightly. The amount of goals they’re scoring completely contradicts the lack of scoring chances and shots they’re generating at 5v5. We’ve seen the regression slowly start to kick in but the oddsmakers are still lagging behind. It’s worth mentioning these two teams did combine for 7 goals in the Habs’ 5-2 win on Tuesday. A more respectable performance from Craig Anderson tonight should secure another high-value bet for Corsica.
