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 Dec. 2 - Dec. 8.

Hot team

Montreal Canadiens (4-0 SU)


The Canadiens have ripped off five wins in a row, including an impressive win against Boston and have now surpassed the Bruins for first place in the Atlantic. A big reason for Montreal's current success is not surprisingly the play of Carey Price. Price has won his last seven starts a is on a current run where he has allowed less than two goals in each of his last 10 starts. The competition gets a little stiffer for the Habs this week when they take on the Los Angeles Kings and then travel to Philadelphia to take on the resurgent Flyers.

Cold Team

Nashville Predators (0-3 SU
)

The Predators have seemed a little toothless lately, losing five straight games, four of which were at home. The skid has landed the Predators in last place in the Central. Nashville has clearly missed the presence of Pekka Rinne between the pipes, as they are giving up at least three goals a game in the past five games. But Nashville has struggled even more at putting the puck in the net, and have scored just over 1 goal a game during the current losing streak. This week the Preds have matchups against the New York Rangers, Dallas and San Jose.

Best Over play

San Jose Sharks (3-1 O/U)


Despite failing to hit the Over on Sunday at Minnesota, the Sharks have been a great play in that regard this season. They have the league's third best record against the Over so far this season thanks to an offense that loves to pepper the net with shots. In fact, the Sharks lead the NHL in shots on goal at a whopping 36 per game. They are also third in the league in goals per game at 3.3. The Sharks are back in action this week with a mini two game home stand against the New York Islanders and a rematch with Minnesota.

Best Under play

Tampa Bay Lightning (0-3 O/U)


Do you think the Lightning miss Steven Stamkos? The Lightning have only averaged 1.9 goals over their last 10 games and he still leads the Bolts in goals even though he has been out of their lineup for almost a month. Tampa bay has lost three of the last four and seven of their last 10. A bright spot for the Lightning has been goaltender Ben Bishop. He is tied for fourth in the league with 15 wins and has a goals against average under two. This week the Lightning travel to Washington and host Detroit before starting a three game road trip.

Surveying the schedule:

If the New York Rangers want to make a move up in the standings the time is now. The Rangers are in the midst of an eight game home stand that they need to take advantage of. It did not get off to a great start with a 4-3 loss versus New Jersey, but a hapless trio of Nashville, Columbus and Calgary all make stops to Madison Square Garden this week.
