The NHL schedule is loaded with eight games tonight! In this article, I will provide my top three hockey picks tonight to make a maximum profit on Monday, January 24, 2022.
The three games being discussed tonight are the Los Angeles Kings at New York Rangers, Vegas Golden Knights at Washington Capitals & Chicago Blackhawks at Colorado Avalanche. Let’s dive right in and see where the value is tonight.
Our Favorite NHL Picks Today (1/24/22)
Los Angeles Kings at New York Rangers
NHL Pick: New York Rangers -1.5 (+155)
The Rangers have been rocking and rolling in recent games, winning four out of the last five. Meanwhile, the Kings have lost three out of the last four, with all three of those losses coming by 2+ goals. And this is why I’ll be taking the Rangers on the puck line.
We are getting absolutely fantastic odds here on the Rangers to win by 2+ goals. In fact, six of the last seven Rangers’ wins have come by 2+ goals.
Vegas Golden Knights at Washington Capitals
NHL Pick: Vegas Golden Knights ML (+140)
Looking at the betting landscape, the Capitals are getting 56% of the bets while the Golden Knights are getting nearly all of the money (95%). With that type of difference, you have no choice but to be a Vegas backer on this night.
It has been a tough string of games for the Golden Knights, losing three of their last four. It certainly doesn’t help that Max Pacioretty and Mark Stone are on injured reserve, but this is a deep team that should be able to overcome the tough times. This will be the first time the teams are meeting this season, and I would think the advantage goes to Vegas and its deceivingly quick pace.
Chicago Blackhawks at Colorado Avalanche
NHL Pick: Colorado Avalanche -1.5 (-125)
The Avalanche have won the first two meetings of their season series with the Blackhawks. On Saturday, Colorado was a massive -590 favorite against Montreal but only won the game by the final score of 3-2 in overtime.
The Avalanche have won six straight games, and 11 of the last 12 since the brief break right before Christmas.
