Gather around hockey fans and devoted gamblers, it’s time for our daily meeting before we go off and make some potentially regrettable decisions with our money. Today on the docket: 6 games, sorted into Gold picks, Silver Picks, Bronze Picks, and black lumps of coal.

Let’s see how today’s numbers break down, using the trusty database-recall system.

Tuesday’s Sheet:



– I’ve noticed that a lot of the picks here lately have been favorites, and it’s not exactly what I want to see, but it is worth noting that favorites have won 63% of all NHL games in the past 7 days.

– I was also kind of hoping that San Jose would be a highly-rated pick today. Apparently, not really though.
