We have some more great NHL betting tips coming your way this Monday, March 21st as the 2015-16 NHL season heads towards the playoffs. Here's our best bets for this week!
The Anaheim Ducks have recently been in season best form, putting together an amazing 11 game win streak which was brought to an end in a shootout against the Washington Captials. This record of wins was the best the Ducks have had in franchise history and has sent a powerful message to all teams only weeks out from the playoffs.
Home ice in this game goes to the Winnipeg Jets, who are looking for some positives in their remaining regular season games. Having only won 3 of their past 10 games, the Jets sit 27th on the league ladder with only 63 points to their name. Even with a home crowd getting behind them, Winnipeg look like they will struggle to stop the force that is the Ducks, who lead the NHL in Power Play Percentage (23.2%) and Penalty Kill Percentage (87%), showing the dominance they have on both sides of the coin.
Anaheim are closing in on first position in the Pacific Division and should secure another 2 points on the road with a victory.
Consistency is not a word you would associate with the Colorado Avalanche this season. Sitting in the middle of the pack on the league ladder, the Avs are 6-4-0 in their last 10 games, most recently getting over the line in a shootout against the Calgary Flames, but not before giving up two short-handed goals in the space of less than a minute.
The Edmonton Oilers have the same 6-4-0 track record coming into this home game and will be attempting to rid their name off the Most Losses statistic (38) in the NHL. Edmonton Goalie Cam Talbot is in some of his best form, saving 100% of the 40 shots put on him in a win against the Vancouver Canucks this past week.
Even after scoring first in the game, the Avs have gone on to lose the game 14 times this season. In a match that could go either way based on both teams having very similar recent form and results, take the Oilers on home ice in a close contest.
The San Jose Sharks come into this match up as the in-form team, having won 8 of their past 10 games with most recently downing the New York Rangers 4-1 on home ice. Sitting in third place in the Pacific Division, the Sharks will be attacking this game hard and fast to try and take another 2 points away heading towards the end of the regular season.
The visiting Arizona Coyotes lead the league this season in Face Off Wins at 54.2% and will need to keep possession of the puck and also keep players out of the penalty box. If the Coyotes give the Sharks too many Power Play opportunities, this could be quite a one-sided hockey game. San Jose have a 22.2% conversion rate when they have the one-man advantage, which is good for 5th in the NHL and should help the Sharks keep their nose in front in this match.
Back San Jose to keep pushing hard towards the playoffs and leave the 23rd placed Arizona with a road loss to their name.
