NHL returns on Tuesday with another seven-game slate, and we're hoping to make amends for yesterday after our hockey picks ran cold (although the Sabres really could have done us a damn solid by holding a lead!)
It's Tuesday March 30, and, as always, we've simulated all of tonight's games 10,000 times each determining where the value lies for bettors across the United States.
With NHL betting picks, probabilities, odds and predicted scores featured each and every day, check out our top plays for tonight's games.

Here is what the data is telling us for tonight's NHL games ⏬
BET: 🔥 Total goals OVER 5.5 (+115) with William Hill Sportsbook
📈 4.6% edge on the sportsbooks
Our predictive model loves finding diamonds in the rough, particularly when it comes to the NHL, and we think we've stumbled across another nice edge with the total goals market here. New Jersey rank among the league's worst for goals conceded while the Bruins rank among the best in getting shots on goal. Let's put two and two together and see if that makes six? Worth a small nibble at plus odds.
For a plus money play like this, it's hard to look past this offer from William Hill Sportsbook who are giving new customers in certain states a RISK-FREE bet up to $2021 - see if your state is one of them here. Basically, you can deposit as much or as little as you like (we recommend around $50) and then place your bet on this game. If they win, you cash in, BIG. If not, that's okay - they'll give you your money back to use again on another bet.
BET: 🔥 Columbus Blue Jackets to cover the puck line (-120) with PointsBet
📈 63.0% probability, 10.9% edge on the sportsbooks
We have this game turning out very different to how the sportsbooks have capped this, and we think the Blue Jackets +1.5 is amazing value given the odds. The last time these two played in January, Columbus tore Tampa Bay apart, winning 5-2. Has enough time passed for that score to be irrelevant? We don't think so.
To best use this pick, you can't go wrong when signing up to PointsBet where new customers will be rewarded with some big bonus bets depending on how much you deposit!
Put $50 into your account, bet the Blue Jackets ML and then if they fall short, you're still sitting on a tidy $100 of bonus bets!
