3. Canucks 7-3 Over Blackhawks in Previous Home 10 Games 

Chicago Blackhawks vs. Vancouver Canucks 

Tuesday, January 24, 2023 – 10:00 PM EST at Rogers Arena 

The Blackhawks have been in strong form lately as they made the push to jump off the bottom of the NHL points table with 6 wins from their previous 10 games.  

Opponents Vancouver have had a lot of both internal and external issues in recent weeks and it’s shown on the ice as they have won just 2 of their previous 12 games. Neither of these teams is likely to make the playoffs this season.  

The Pick  

Despite the Canucks being in turmoil right now, this is a prime position to snatch an unlikely win against a Blackhawks team who have won back-to-back road games for the first time this season. The Canucks have had an extra day’s rest ahead of this game and have lost their previous three home games.  

The previous two games between these teams in Vancouver witnessed shutouts with the Blackhawks winning 1-0 last time out and the Canucks 3-0 prior to that. Our Computer believes a home win by two goals is likely tonight and at plus money, the Canucks are looking to get their first home win in over four games.  

Score Prediction: Chicago Blackhawks 2 – Vancouver Canucks 4 

NHL Pick: Vancouver -1.5 (+115) at FanDuel  

2. Major Injury Blows for Both Teams 

Washington Capitals  vs. Colorado Avalanche  

Tuesday, January 24, 2023 – 09:00 PM EST at Ball Arena  

Both the Washington Capitals and Colorado Avalanche come into his matchup with a lot of injury concerns. The Avalanche are missing four players, and potentially six as both Darren Helm and Cale Makar are questionable ahead of tonight’s game.  

On the flip side, the Capitals are without four players, most notably John Carlson and Alex Ovechkin is currently questionable.  

The Capitals come into this road game having suffered a 6-2 defeat to the Vegas Golden Knights last time out, while the Avalanche was scrapped by the Seattle Kraken with a 2-1 win after a penalty shootout.  

The Pick  

Despite the Avalanche having gone on a 5-0 winning streak after previously going 1-7 in their eight games prior, our computer believes the Capitals could come away from Denver with an unlikely underdog victory as it has predicted a 3-2 to the Capitals at +125.  

The Capitals have won 3 of the previous 7 meetings between these two teams and interestingly all three victories were by a 3-2 scoreline.  

Score Prediction: Washington Capitals 3 – Colorado Avalanche 2 

NHL Pick: Washington Capitals ML (+125) at Bet365  

1. Two of the Worst Teams Go Head-to-Head

Anaheim Ducks vs. Arizona Coyotes  

Tuesday, January 24, 2023 – 09:00 PM EST at Mullett Arena  

At the time of writing the Arizona Coyotes are 14th in the Western Conference having scored 35 points in 47 games. Their opponents the Anaheim Ducks are regularly regarded as the worst team in the NHL with just 31 points scored from their 47 games played, leaving them with the joint worst points record, but they can boast of having the worst goals for and against record to secure their place as the worst overall team. 

The Coyotes finally broke their 9-game-winless streak but have since gone 2-2, but on home ice at least they have won 50% of their previous ten games. The Ducks have allowed 8 goals in their previous three road wins, meaning they are having to outscore their opponents every time with 5-3 and 4-3 wins thrown in there.  

The Pick  

The Ducks have failed to win in 12 of their previous 15 road games, losing 9 of those 12 by two goals or more. The Coyotes might not be that good, but on home ice, they have proven they can handle themselves and at a massive +180 for the Coyotes to win by 2+ goals is some really nice value. Our computer predicts a 4-2 predicted scoreline.

Score Prediction: Anaheim Ducks 2 – Arizona Coyotes 4
