Wednesday's Best NHL Bets

Columbus Blue Jackets at Edmonton Oilers (-155, 5.5)

While the majority of the NHL teams are entertaining postseason aspirations, the Columbus Blue Jackets have been mathematically eliminated and the Edmonton Oilers are feverishly crunching the numbers toward that conclusion as well.

Perhaps Edmonton coach Tom Renney can see the writing on the wall, which could explain why he publicly blasted his charges following their latest setback. The teams with the two lowest point totals in the league will meet in Alberta on Wednesday.

Edmonton suffered its third straight loss and 13th in 17 outings on Monday, prompting the usually reserved Renney to rant.

"It doesn't take many for the wrong approach, the wrong attitude, the wrong give a (expletive) to make its way through your dressing room," Renney said after the team's 3-2 setback to the San Jose Sharks. "It doesn't take many guys at all."

Although Edmonton's offense has gone south, LW Taylor Hall is doing his best by scoring a goal in three consecutive games. Hall has collected seven points in four career contests versus the Blue Jackets, but has yet to face them this season.

Edmonton's offense will show up Wednesday.

Pick: Over

Colorado Avalanche at Buffalo Sabres (-150, 5)

A couple of months ago, rumors were swirling that Buffalo goaltender Ryan Miller might be traded out of town as the Sabres struggled near the bottom of the Eastern Conference.

Now they’re knocking on the playoff door.

“Two months ago, I would say it would’ve been very tough with our group,” defenseman Tyler Myers told reporters about his team’s playoff chances after netting the winning goal in overtime against Montreal. “But I think we’ve come a very long, long way … the way we responded was a big sign of life with our group.”

The Sabres' win over Montreal improved them to 9-2-1 in their last 12, but they will be without Myers for the next three games after he was suspended for a hit on Scott Gomez.

Still, with Miller slamming the door shut, the under is worth a shot in this matchup.

Pick: Under

Colorado Avalanche at Buffalo Sabres

The Colorado Avalanche hung onto it's 8th and final seed in the Western Conference playoff race Monday night defeating Anaheim 3-2 in OT. Meanwhile, the Buffalo Sabres remained in the Eastern Conference post season hunt with it's 3-2 OT victory over visiting Montreal Canadians last time out. The two teams will meet this Wednesday at the First Niagara Center in Buffalo with crucial points on the line. Stay home with Buffalo, they can't afford a clunker being just two points back of Washington for 8th in the East. Besides, Sabres are peeking at the right time having posted a 9-2-2 mark their last 13 on the ice. Keep in mind, Sabres are on a 5-0 run on home ice and netminder Ryan Miller has been light's out the past eleven posting a 9-1-1 record with a 1.78 GAA and .944 save%.
