NHL Picks for March 5th


I’m going to make this post quick, as it is close to 2:00 am Friday night (or Early Saturday morning I guess).  I am in a hockey tournament myself this weekend and won’t have time to make a post tomorrow at all so I am getting it done now.

I recommend you check out the Sports Picks King system as we have a big 3 star selection going in the NHL (We are on fire with hockey picks).

Besides that play I have one other pick for tomorrow… good luck with your betting today!

NHL Betting Picks for Saturday March 5th:

Chicago Blackhawks @ Toronto Maple Leafs – BLACKHAWKS TO WIN (-125) – Chicago had a big 5-2 win last night and have now won 7 straight games as they look for home ice advantage in the playoffs.  Chicago has been averaging 4.20 goals per game over their last 5 games, and just 2.40 goals against during that span.  On the road this season the Blackhawks are averaging 3.27 goals per game.  Toronto has been playing well lately winning two straight, but don’t fair well as home underdogs.  The Leafs are just 1-5 in their last 6 games as a home underdog of +110 to +150.  Toronto is also just 3-13 in their last 16 Saturday games.  The Blackhawks are rolling and I don’t think Toronto will be the team to stop them.  This young Chicago team doesn’t get a chance to play in Toronto often and I think they will make the best of it tonight.  Take the Blackhawks on the money line.

Added Two Plays (I had time between games today to get more picks up!)

Florida Panthers @ Atlanta Thrashers – UNDER 5.5 GOALS (-130) – I think it’s safe to say that these two teams are the worst in the NHL at this time.  The Thrashers have dropped 23 of their last 30 games, while the Panthers have lost 16 of their last 21.  Florida is averaging just 0.80 goals per game over their last 5, and the Thrashers aren’t much better averaging just 1.40 goals per game over their past 5.  The Thrashers have gone UNDER in 5 straight and 7 of their last 9 and Florida has gone UNDER in 4 straight games.  The UNDER is also 36-17-2 in the Panthers last 55 road games, and 19-7-1 in the Thrashers last 27 home games.  These two teams have met 5 times this season and the past 4 meetings have gone UNDER.  Very surprised to see the total set at 5.5 – give me the UNDER.

Montreal Canadiens @ Tampa Bay Lightning – UNDER 5.5 GOALS (-127) – This game should be a good one and a possible playoff match up in April.  The Canadiens have won 4 of their last 5 games coming into tonight, while the Lightning head back home (where they are 21-7-4) after two straight losses.  Both teams go with their top goalies in Price and Roloson.  Tampa Bay is averaging just 2.80 goals per game in their last 5, but are only giving up 1.80 goals against in the span.  Montreal is also playing solid defensive hockey lately, giving up just 2.20 goals per game over their last 5.  The UNDER is 7-2 in their Canadiens last 9 games overall and 36-12-3 in their last 51 games as a road underdog.  The UNDER has hit in the Lightning’s last 4 straight games, and is 5-0 in their last 5 vs Eastern Conference opponents.  The UNDER is 8-3 in these two teams last 11 meetings, and 5-1 in their last 6 meetings in Tampa Bay.

Again it is highly suggested you check out the premium pick at SportsPicksKing.com, good luck!

  1. As a Leafs fan, I was hoping Hawks would go Turco in the B2B.
    Doesn’t look like thats doing to happen.
    Crawford and the Hawks a good bet on the moneyline.
    Puckline would make it a little more worth your while, but the Leafs take every game to extra innings lately.
