Saturday NHL Odds & Picks
Capitals vs. Predators
8 p.m. ET
The Capitals will make a trip to Nashville to take on the Predators, and while this total is a low six goals, it’s still the under that is tracking the sharp money.
Betting tickets are somewhat split on this game, as 57% of the wagers are on the over but just 41% of the money is on the same side.
Each of these teams could use a quality result, with both records hovering around 50%. According to pro bettors, you can expect the teams to play defensively in order to try and secure that result.
The best current price on the market is over at BetRivers, who is hanging a plus-money price on the under.
PRO Pick: Under 6
Penguins vs. Kraken
10 p.m. ET
Over in Seattle, there’s another under that sharp bettors are finding attractive.
The Penguins are in town, and they bring a quality offense with them, but at the current number of 6.5, our PRO report data indicates that the under is getting love, and lots of it.
Once again, retail bettors are fairly split on the game, with 54% of the tickets on the under, but a majority of the sharp action has pushed the price on this under down.
That doesn’t mean it isn’t valuable, and again, BetRivers has the best price available.
PRO Pick: Under 6.5 (-110 via BetRivers)
