This Week's Best NHL Bets
By Covers.com

Every week, we update you on who's hot, who's not and situational betting spots in the National Hockey League.

For the week of March 3-March 9.

Hot team

Pittsburgh Penguins (3-0 SU)

The Penguins have won four straight after suffering back-to-back losses to close out February. Pittsburgh has tallied 20 goals during its current win streak, but has also allowed 17 markers in the process. The Penguins host the Islanders Sunday before Boston visits The Igloo.

Cold team

Philadelphia Flyers (0-3 SU)

The Flyers are being ripped by the media and their fans for their lackluster effort in Saturday’s 3-0 loss to the Bruins. Philadelphia is 0-9 when trailing after the first period and must find a way to bounce back in games moving forward if it hopes to make the playoffs. Buffalo visits the Wells Fargo Center Sunday before the Flyers play a home-and-home with the Devils.

Best over play

Toronto Maple Leafs (2-2 SU, 4-0 over/under)

The Maple Leafs have struggled to keep the puck out of their own net against the top teams in the East. Pittsburgh and Boston lit the lamp four times on Toronto last week and Montreal scored five times on Ben Scrivens the week prior. The Maple Leafs, who have played over the number in seven consecutive games, are second in the league in penalty minutes (415 PIM), giving their opposition plenty of power play time on a regular basis. Toronto visits Winnipeg Tuesday and then returns to the Air Canada Centre for a three-game homestand.

Best under play

Detroit Red Wings (2-2 SU, 0-4 over/under)

Goals are a dime a dozen right now in Detroit. The Red Wings have gone low in six consecutive games, scoring only eight goals during the under run. Detroit hosts Columbus Sunday before making a run to Canada to play the Flames, Oilers and Canucks.

Scouting the schedule:

The New York Rangers play four tough road games in six days this week. The Rangers will visit Washington, Buffalo, Winnipeg and Pittsburgh on the trip. New York is 1-6-1 O/U away from MSG.

The Nashville Predators hit the road for five road games in seven days beginning Tuesday in Dallas. The Predators are 4-7-1-1 away from home, playing under the total in nine of those 13 away games.
