We got up two from three for Thursday’s Picks, Blue Jackets and Rangers finished 4-2 went meant the Over 4.5 goals (1.75) came in, the Flyers picked up a 2-1 victory over the Canadiens to complete the beat on the Flyers (2.15) but we were denied a full house after the Red Wings could only manage a 1-1 draw with the Lightning who then went on to win in overtime.

New Jersey Devils at Pittsburgh Penguins
Edmonton Oilers at Vancouver Canucks
Saturday 14th December, 00:05 & 02.05 (BST)
Bet: Win Double (Penguins & Canucks) at 2.30 (Coral)
The Penguins currently sit second in the Eastern Conference and they come up against thirteenth placed the Devils, the Pens are undefeated in their last matches at home whilst the Devils have lost three of their last five on the road, the head-2-head record in Pittsburgh shows that the Penguins have have won three of the last four games.
The Canucks have picked up at home, they beat the Coyotes in overtime and then have gone on to win their last home games whilst the Oilers have not been terrible on the road, the picked up an overtime win over the Stars which means they are 2-1-2 in their last five matches on the road. The head-2-head record in Vancouver points towards a home victory, the Canucks have only lost once in the last eight meetings.
Both of these games point towards a home victory but both are rather short so I am going to double them up.
Washington Capitals at Florida Panthers
Saturday 14th December, 00:30 (BST)
Bet: Over 5.5 Goals at 2.05 (bwin)
Everything points to plenty of goals in this game, the Panthers last five games in Florida have produced an average of six goals per game, the Capitals last five on the road have produced an average of 4.4 goals whilst the head-2-head record in Florida for the last five games has produced an average of 7 goals per game, you could also look at the last six head-2-head game overall which produce an average of 6.8 goals per game.
So plenty of goals have been on the cards and will hopefully once again for this one, over 4.5 is too short at 1.57 but looking at the over 5.5 there is 2.05 available in this market which looks a much better number.
NHL Picks Friday 13th December
Penguins & Canucks Win Double at 2.30 (Coral), Capitals & Panthers Over 5.5 Goals at 2.05 (bwin) and a Treble on the three selections at 4.59 (Coral).
