DailyFaceoff/Corsica NHL Bets (February 22nd)

Updated: February 22, 2019 at 2:26 pm by Dylan Berthiaume

The Corsica NHL betting predictions looks to keep things rolling tonight after a perfect outing on Thursday. I’ve highlighted the night’s most probable and valuable bets below. You can find predictions for all of tonight’s games here. Good luck!

Highest Probability

Avalanche @ Blackhawks – Spread | CHI +1.5 (-243)

There isn’t a whole lot of value here at -243, but you won’t find a safer bet on tonight’s slate. Chicago comes into tonight’s game having won 10 of their last 12 games. Led by an incredibly efficient power-play, the Hawks are averaging a whopping 4.58 goals per game over that stretch. They’ve converted on a league-best 33.3% of their power-play opportunities over the last 30 days. Colorado owns the sixth-worst PK% in the NHL at 77.2%. Chicago has a significant advantage on special teams tonight and it should tilt the game in their favour.

Jeremy Colliton likes to find softer matchups for Patrick Kane and Jonathan Toews on home ice, and it’s worked to perfection. The two of them have combined for 12 even strength goals in the Hawks’ last 11 home games. They should see a lot of time against the third and fourth lines of the Avalanche tonight. With how well they’re clicking on the power-play, an even strength goal or two will be all the Hawks need to cover against the Avs. Corsica gives the Blackhawks a 72.24% chance of covering the +1.5-goal spread tonight.

Highest Value

Ducks @ Flames – Spread | ANA +1.5 (-125)

There are some obvious risks associated with this high-value play, but at -125, you won’t find better bang for your buck tonight. While the Flames are set to dominate this game at even strength, recent trends suggest Anaheim could have an advantage on special teams. After an incredible start to the season, Calgary’s power-play has slowed down in recent weeks. They’ve converted on just 15.4% of their power-play opportunities over the last 30 days. They own the league’s sixth-worst PK% over that same stretch at 75.0%. The Ducks have maintained above average rates on the penalty kill and the power-play through the firing of Randy Carlyle. They’ll have a great chance of winning this game if they can survive the inevitable onslaught they’ll face at even strength. It shouldn’t take more than breaking even at 5v5. Corsica gives the Ducks covering a likelihood of 63.53%.
