NHL Week 2 Betting Tips 2019-20 Season

NHL Best Games of the Week
NHL Week 2 Preview

Buffalo Sabres at Columbus Blue Jackets

  • Buffalo Sabres
  • October 7th, 2019, 7:00 pm ET, Nationwide Arena
  • Columbus Blue Jackets

Tip – The Columbus Blue Jackets will be playing their third game in four nights when they host the Buffalo Sabres at Nationwide Arena on Monday night. Buffalo beat the Blue Jackets in Columbus last season and are great money to get the job done again on all relevant betting sites. It should be a close contest but take the underdogs in this one.

Winnipeg Jets at Pittsburgh Penguins

  • Winnipeg Jets
  • October 8th, 2019, 7:00 pm ET, PPG Paints Arena
  • Pittsburgh Penguins

Tip – The Winnipeg Jets avoided a crisis by finally re-signing restricted free agent Patrick Laine days before the season started. They are feeling the effects of losing Dustin Byfuglien though and it will be difficult to replace him during a gruelling campaign. The Penguins shut out Winnipeg last season in the only game the two teams played at PPG Paints Arena and we could see a similar result this season as well. The home side will be eager to get off to a more positive start than they did last year, especially in front of their home fans. Take the home team to win by multiple goals on all your favourite bookmakers.

Boston Bruins at Vegas Golden Knights

  • Boston Bruins
  • October 8th, 2019, 10:00 pm ET, T-Mobile Arena
  • Vegas Golden Knights

Tip – While the T-Mobile Arena is one of the NHL’s toughest buildings to visit, the Bruins have had no issues playing in Las Vegas. Boston beat the Golden Knights in both games they played against each other last season – including at T-Mobile Arena. Boston are in the midst of a west coast road trip and will have already adjusted to the time difference as well. Go with the under and Boston.

BOSTON TO WIN WITH 888SPORT

Tampa Bay Lightning at Toronto Maple Leafs

  • Tampa Bay Lightning
  • October 10th, 2019, 7:00 pm ET, Scotiabank Arena
  • Toronto Maple Leafs

Tip – The Tampa Bay Lightning and Toronto Maple Leafs are two legitimate Stanley Cup contenders. The visitors may be the deepest team in the league while the home side could be the most talented. While both teams are hoping to play solid defensive hockey, we could see a real shoot-out on Thursday in Toronto. With the amount of skill that will be on display at Scotiabank Arena the over should be a lock.

New Jersey Devils at Boston Bruins

  • New Jersey Devils
  • October 12th, 2018, 7:00 pm ET, TD Garden
  • Boston Bruins

Tip – The TD Garden will be rocking on Saturday night when Eastern Conference rivals the New Jersey Devils come to town. New Jersey will be just hoping to make the playoffs this season, while Boston are looking to rebound from their loss in the Stanley Cup final last year. New Jersey might be a better hockey team than most are giving them credit for, but they will have a really difficult time trying to upset the Bruins. The home side is definitely worth laying money on to win by multiple goals.

BOSTON TO WIN WITH 888SPORT

Calgary Flames at San Jose Sharks

  • Calgary Flames
  • October 13th, 2019, 10:00 PM ET, SAP Center
  • San Jose Sharks

Tip – Two of the league’s elite lock horns on Sunday evening in what could be a playoff preview. Calgary take on San Jose a night after playing the Golden Knights in Las Vegas and could very well be feeling the effects of fatigue against a disciplined Sharks’ side. San Jose is never an easy place to go to but playing at the SAP Center on the second half of a back-to-back is nearly impossible- even if it is still early in the season. Take the home side and the over.
