The Corsica NHL betting predictions closed out another strong week in style on Friday, going two for two on its highest probability and value picks. Corsica loved the goaltending matchup for the Ducks at home against the Maple Leafs, banking on John Gibson to help Anaheim cover a +1.5-goal spread. True to form, Gibson stopped 33 of the 35 shots he faced as the Ducks were narrowly defeated by a score of 2-1 in overtime. The bet with the highest value on Friday’s slate was pegged to be the Kings on the moneyline. The Kings struggled to get any offense going but rode a strong performance from Cal Petersen to a 2-1 shootout win. This post now sits at 30-15 (66.67%) on the season.
The NHL schedule is a bit out of whack this week as the league prepares for an off-day on Thursday for American Thanksgiving. There are nine games on tonight’s slate with plenty of interesting spots to play. I’ve highlighted Corsica’s highest value and probability bets to help you narrow down your options. Good luck!
Blue Jackets @ Ducks – Spread | CBJ +1.5 (-224)
According to Corsica, at a whopping 71.58%, the Blue Jackets covering a +1.5-goal spread against the Maple Leafs is the most likely bet to hit tonight. All the Blue Jackets need to do to win this game, let alone keep it within a goal, is stay out of the penalty box. They have a distinct advantage over the Maple Leafs at 5v5 but their special teams pale in comparison. At 77.6%, Columbus’ penalty-kill will not be able to keep Toronto’s sixth-ranked power-play off the scoresheet. The Leafs also boast the league’s sixth-best penalty-kill while the Blue Jackets’ struggles with the man advantage are well-documented. Columbus can do themselves and our readers a huge favour tonight by staying disciplined and limiting the chances for Toronto’s mighty power-play.
Golden Knights @ Flames – Over/Under | Under 5.5 (+109)
If you’re looking to maximize your value tonight, Corsica suggests you look no further than the under for the Flames and Golden Knights. Vegas is scoring just 2.62 goals per game this season. Injuries have forced them to rely on their top line for the bulk of their offense. Stuck in a terrible 5v5 matchup against the Backlund line, Vegas can’t count on their top line to produce tonight. Even with Max Pacioretty and Alex Tuch, Vegas’ second line isn’t a serious offensive threat so long as it’s centered by Cody Eakin. The Flames’ top line has struggled at 5v5 and their second line will have their hands full tonight in the aforementioned matchup with the Karlsson line. With a slow pace of play expected at 5v5 and mediocre power-play units on both sides, this game has a great chance of hitting the under of 5.5 goals tonight.
