Picks Summary

  • Panthers vs. Bruins: Under 6.5 (-120) at Bet365
  • Kraken vs. Avalanche: Under 6 (-120) at Bet365


Using our NHL computer picks, we were able to place tonight’s bets based on the information generated.

Having come up with a 3-1 record this week, our computer picks are targeting Unders tonight. Despite laying the juice, we like both to be low-scoring affairs.


Florida Panthers vs. Boston Bruins

Wednesday, April 26, 2023 – 07:00 PM EDT at TD Garden



Panthers Must Get Offense Going

During the regular season, the Florida Panthers produced the 6th best goals per game ratio, hitting 3.5, but thus far in these playoffs the league’s top defense (Boston) has allowed the Panthers to only 2.9 goals per game.

Boston now leads the series 3-1. With four goals per game across the first four matchups, it’s hard to see how the Panthers are going to overturn this series deficit.

Tonight could be their final night in the playoffs as the Panthers have won just 1 of their previous 7 at the TD Garden, and that was the last time out. It would be a rare sight to see them beat this Bruins team back-to-back on home ice.

Bruins Can End Series Tonight

Boston hoped for an easy First Round and they can achieve just that with a home victory tonight. They will likely go on to face Toronto in the next round, but nothing is set in stone just yet, despite Toronto also having a 3-1 series lead.

Boston are 15-5 on home ice in their previous 20 games.

The Pick

Although we like the Bruins to win here and our computer is predicting a 4-2 Bruins victory, we like the Under much better as both our own prediction (5-1) and the computer’s are seeing less than 7 goals scored.

Three previous three games have gone Over 6.5 goals with just game one going Under. We believe that, with so much on the line tonight, the Under could be back in play.

The Boston Bruins on the -1.5 PK line is also interesting at +110 NHL betting odds. The Bruins covered this spread in all three of their previous victories and have the 6th best ATS record this season compared to Florida’s 2nd worst ATS record.

Score Prediction: Florida Panthers 2 – Boston Bruins 4

NHL Pick: Under 6.5 (-120) at Bet365


Seattle Kraken vs. Colorado Avalanche

Wednesday, April 26, 2023 – 09:30 PM EDT at Ball Arena



Kraken and Avalanche Love a Low-Scoring Game

These teams have only ever faced off a total of 10 times, with 70% of those hitting under 5.5 goals scored.

Although both teams did end the regular season having seen more games go over 5.5 goals than under, they still ranked as only the 7th (Seattle) and 12th (Colorado) highest teams to see the total go under out of 15 in the Western Conference.

Avalanche Without Key Defender

Cale Makar was suspended for tonight’s game due to a late hit on Jared McCann in the previous game. Will this cause problems for Colorado or will they be just fine without him?

Makar is one of the best two-way defensemen in the league, having racked up 66 points in 60 games. He has also had 3 points in the opening 4 playoff games.

Interestingly, these teams have only ever faced off five times in Colorado with the Kraken winning three of those five.

The Pick

Our computer is predicting yet another low-scoring affair between these two teams and we agree. Look to take the Under 6 goals here at -120, receiving a push in the unlikely scenario we end on six goals.

With this series tied up at 2-2 and only one of the first four games hitting 6+ goals, we are more than happy to invest our money in the Under in this matchup. Four of the five games between these teams in Colorado have seen six or less goals scored.

Score Prediction: Seattle Kraken 2 – Colorado Avalanche 3

NHL Pick: Under 6 (-120) at Bet365
