The Corsica NHL betting predictions just missed out on another perfect night on Tuesday. The highest value bet was pegged to be the Hurricanes and Blues hitting the under on 5.5 goals. Carolina bested St. Louis by a score of 4-1, narrowly securing the under. For the bet with the highest probability, Corsica picked Vegas to beat the spread of +1.5-goals in Toronto. After playing the Maple Leafs tight for 59 minutes, the Golden Knights’ bid to beat the spread was foiled by an empty-netter from Nazem Kadri. This post now sits at 22-11 (66.7%) on the season.
Tonight’s three-game slate features Crosby paying Ovechkin a visit in D.C., the Predators taking on the Avs in Colorado, and the Flames looking to extend their winning streak to four in Anaheim. Corsica has generated its highest value and probability plays of the night in an effort to help you win a little bit of money.

Penguins @ Capitals — Over/Under | Under 6.5 (-102)
Given the offensive talent on both the Capitals and Penguins, you might be hesitant to play the under in this one. While it might not be the most likely outcome, Corsica has this game hitting the under of 6.5 goals as the most valuable bet on the slate. While Washington is leading the NHL with 3.77 goals per game, their production is inflated by a 12.34% shooting percentage, the highest in the league. The Penguins’ formidable penalty-kill (81.6%) should keep the Caps’ powerplay in-check and help keep the goal-scoring to a minimum. Casey DeSmith is expected to start the game in goal for Pittsburgh. He has flat-out outplayed Matt Murray so far this season, posting a 4-2-0 record and a .932 SV%.
Flames @ Ducks — Spread | ANA +1.5 (-225)
With Ryan Getzlaf healthy and centering the Ducks’ top line, Corsica likes Anaheim’s chances of beating the +1.5-goal spread tonight. The Flames have given up the tenth-most scoring chances in the league to date. That wouldn’t be so troublesome if it weren’t for the play of Mike Smith. To say Calgary’s starting netminder has struggled this season would be putting it lightly; he’s posted an abysmal .871 SV% and 3.71 GAA. The Ducks might get worked at 5v5, but the lopsided goaltending matchup should be enough to keep this one close.
