Sunday NHL Betting Predictions

Sunday NHL Betting Predictions

Your Sunday Night Hockey Bets

By Angelo Montilla

Here are a few NHL betting options to consider, with odds courtesy of BetOnline.

Minnesota Wild (-125) vs. San Jose Sharks (+113)

Dubnyk

The San Jose Sharks are in full control of the Pacific Division and will be seeking a fourth consecutive victory on Sunday night when they travel to Minnesota for a clash against the Wild.

The Sharks have just one regulation loss in 10 games and are riding three straight victories as they enter action as appealing +113 underdogs on the road, where they’ve posted an incredible 19-7-5 record away from SAP Center.

The Wild are no slouches either of course, as they sit first in the Central Division and are -125 favorites playing at Xcel Energy Center, where the club has only dropped eight contests all season long.

This is a game the Wild can ill afford to lose, as the Blackhawks are hot on their tails for top spot in the division. The Wild have one of the stingiest defenses in the NHL, thanks in large part to goaltender Devan Dubnyk. What’s even more impressive is the Wild have been one of the top scoring teams in the league as well, generating a second-best 3.32 goals for per game.

The head-to-head series over the last three games between these two clubs has tipped in favor of the Sharks, who have won two of those times.

The total goals projection is set at 5.5, but don’t expect this one to be a high-scoring affair.

Pick: Minnesota Wild (-125) and the Under

Calgary Flames (-130) vs. New York Islanders (+118)

Flames

Six wins and counting for the Calgary Flames, who will be seeking No. 7 on Sunday afternoon when they host the New York Islanders at Scotiabank Saddledome.

The Flames can inch closer to moving into a top 3 position in the Pacific Division with a victory. Calgary enters action on Sunday as -130 favorites on home ice where they’ve won the last three in a row. The Islanders, who are fighting for their playoff lives, head to Calgary as +118 underdogs.

After a slow start to the season after inking a mega-contract, Johnny Gaudreau has picked up his game offensively. Johnny Hockey has eight points in his last six games during Calgary’s hot stretch.

Looking at the head-to-head battle over the last 10 games, the Isles have won eight times during that span, including three straight.

If you’re considering an over/under wager, the total goals projection is set at 5.5. You can expect this to be a wide-open game, with the Flames coming out on top.

Pick: Calgary Flames (-130) and the Over

Carolina Hurricanes (-130) vs. Arizona Coyotes (+118)

Coyotes

Two teams with not much to play for — other than pride and maybe the No. 1 overall draft pick — will square off on Sunday when the Carolina Hurricanes travel to the desert to face the Arizona Coyotes.

The Hurricanes have been reeling of late and sit dead last in the Eastern Conference, yet still enter action on Sunday night as -130 favorites on the road where they have a dreadful 7-16-8 record. The Coyotes have been slightly better, winning four of the last 10 games, as they head into the game as intriguing +118 underdogs.

Both the Hurricanes and Coyotes have each scored 151 goals apiece to this point of the season — among the fewest in the National Hockey League.

NHL Odds

The head-to-head history between the two sides has been fairly split down the middle, with the Hurricanes holding the edge with sixth wins over that period.

The total goals projection for this match has been set at 5.5, but don’t expect these low-scoring teams to be involved in a track meet.

Pick: Arizona Coyotes (+118) and the Under (5.5)

Always take into account a team's form in the previous 10 games before making your final bets. It's a simple, yet accurate metric to follow when formulating your NHL betting strategy.
