NHL Saturday Picks


August 8, 2020 1:27 PM

The NHL Round Robin Qualifying continues Saturday, with two games set for us to glide our way through.

Here are our picks for today’s NHL action:

Golden Knights @ Avalanche

Over 6 goals (+105*)

Two heavyweights come up against each other as the Pacific Division leading Golden Knights take on the Colorado Avalanche.

Colorado have been a defensive juggernaut since the season restart, only conceding a total of 3 goals from their two matches, whereas Vegas have been offensive powerhouses, scoring 11 in two since returning from the break.

Our model predicts the Golden Knights to win and to do it their way, by scoring a lot of goals.

Flyers @ Lightning

Over 5.5 goals (-115*)

Our model is ranking a high probability of the Flyers and Lightning match being an entertaining one. The Flyers are coming off a memorable win against the defending Stanley Cup Champions, Washington Capitals, while Tampa Bay have had a pair of 3-2 wins since the restart.
