Wednesday's NHL Pick

2010 NHL Picks and Predictions for Wednesday December 22

DETROIT, MI (TheSpread) – The Vancouver Canucks are making a big push for the top spot in the Western Conference and on Wednesday they take on Detroit. Here is a breakdown of my pick for this game.

Vancouver is 19-8-4 on the season for 42 points. They are third in the Western Conference right now. The Canucks have scored 101 goals and allowed just 78. They are 8-5-2 on the road and winners in 8 of their last 10.

Detroit is 20-8-4 on the season for 44 points. The Wings have scored 105 goals and allowed 88. The Wings are 12-4-3 at home and are winners in just 4 of their last 10.

Oddsmakers from online sportsbook Sportsbook.com have given Detroit betting odds of -135 for tonight’s game while Vancouver has been given odds of +125. The over/under for goals scored has been set at 5.5. Here is a look at the trends and my pick for tonight’s game.

The favorite has won 10 of the last 14 meetings in this series while the over has also hit in 5 of the last 6 games in this series. The Canucks are on a roll, and the Wings are in a funk, but I expect Detroit to bounce back on Wednesday night. My pick is the Wings to get a needed win at home, as they are too talented to continue to play poorly.
