NHL Bets of the Day 11/24/21
Minnesota Wild vs New Jersey Devils, 7 p.m. ET
Best Bet: Devils Moneyline (+105) at Caesars
The New Jersey Devils will take on the Minnesota Wild back at Prudential Center, a venue they are 5-3-1 in.
Both teams are 2-3 in their last five games, and ironically just played their last game against the same opponent—the Tampa Bay Lightning. The Devils started off down 3-1 and came back to win 5-3 while the Wild lost 5-4.
This game could go a few different directions, but I do like the Devils at home. I like both offenses but New Jersey’s goaltending is way more consistent than the Wild, who are giving up the 24th-most goals per game in the league.
We will see plenty of big-time players on the ice tonight with Kirill Kaprizov leading the way for the Wild, but one should expect the second line of Jesper Bratt, Dawson Mercer, Andreas Johnsson, plus contributions from blue liners P.K. Subban and Dougie Hamilton, to push Jersey to their ninth win of the season.

Winnipeg Jets vs Columbus Blue Jackets, 7 p.m. ET
Best Bet: Jets -1.5 (+190) at Caesars
Desperate teams can be the scariest teams, and right now the Winnipeg Jets are desperate. The Jets went on a three-game winning streak a couple weeks ago, taking down the Edmonton Oilers, Los Angeles Kings and San Jose Sharks, but unfortunately, they have now lost three straight.
I do not see the Jets losing a fourth consecutive game as they are fighting for the division lead. This league is unforgiving and a fourth-straight loss could push them down a path no team wants to go down. This is partially why I think they head to Columbus and win, but not just in any sort of fashion. They win by two goals.
I like the puck line here. Columbus is a solid team and they are playing well, but they simply do not have the goaltending that Winnipeg has, nor do they have the firepower.
Mark Scheifele got off to a slow start, but in his last five games he has scored at least one point in four of them. Not to mention Kyle Connor, who has amassed 22 points on the season with an incredible 12 goals on the year. Former Blue Jacket Pierre-Luc Dubois is also having himself a year.
Columbus is a solid team but this is the Jets’ opportunity to make a statement as they have five losses and four overtime losses. They’ve been in most games this season, but this three-game losing streak just isn’t them. I expect them to put an end to it tonight in 4-2 fashion on the road.

Anaheim Ducks vs. Colorado Avalanche, 10 p.m. ET
Best Bet: Ducks Moneyline (+195) at Caesars
The Anaheim Ducks have won eight of their last 10 games. While the season didn’t start all that well for them, they’ve clearly fixed whatever the issue was. The Ducks are heavy underdogs in this one and I don’t really see why.
The Avalanche have a stacked roster even without star Nathan McKinnon and promising forward J.T. Compher, but the fact is this: the Avalanche hide their biggest issue well by scoring a lot. They did it last game against the Ottawa Senators in a game they won 7-5. However, their goaltending is less than stellar as it sits at 27th in the league. Sure, Colorado wins, but they don’t make it look pretty.
Part of the big problem for the Senators was the pacing they allowed the Avalanche to play with. The Ducks won’t be so kind. Losers of two straight, the Ducks find themselves needing to win this game after winning eight straight before this recent skid.
Simply put, the Ducks have been getting great play out of John Gibson this season. Additionally, they have been playing some tight hockey, not allowing teams like Colorado to play the breakneck style of hockey they thrive on.
This isn’t to say that Colorado has no chance, but the Ducks aren’t Ottawa. The Ducks have a top-10 power play, much better goal tending and their last two losses came against solid squads in one-goal losing situations.
I expect the Ducks, led by Troy Terry and Co., to win this one and get right back on a roll. This will be viewed as an upset by most, but in reality, the Ducks have proven that the odds against them are overblown and you should take advantage of that tonight.
