Your NHL on TNT betting guide for November 23rd

After a hiatus of about a week, we're back. I'll be honest with you, I may or may not have just completely forgot to draw up a betting guide for last week. That's my fault 100%.

Game 1: Philadelphia Flyers @ Washington Capitals


After an extremely impressive start to the season, the Philadelphia Flyers are exactly the team we expected them to be all along. They find themselves slowly but surely working their way down the standings in the Eastern Conference, and before long, they'll probably be at the bottom, anchor tied around their ankle, never to return for the foreseeable future.


The Washington Capitals haven't been much better. This isn't the big bad Caps team that we've grown accustomed to over the last decade or so. This is an aging team, who's window for contention is well behind them. The only reason you'd want to casually watch the Capitals these days is to see Alex Ovechkin's chase for the goal scoring crown. He sits very firmly at 789, well within reach of Wayne Gretzky's 894.


Still, I'll take a Capitals team that features Ovechkin, Nicklas Backstrom and John Carlson over the Flyers any day of the week.


I'll take:

  • U 5.5

  • WSH -1.5

 

Game 2: Ottawa Senators @ Vegas Golden Knights


Senators fans, what's happening?! This is a team that was widely crowned as the "champions of the offseason." Now they're sitting in dead last in the Eastern Conference. It's a shame, it really is. After trading for Alex DeBrincat and signing Claude Giroux to help accompany their stars in Brady Tkachuk and Tim Stützle, the expectations were high for Ottawa. After years of rebuilding, they were hoping that this would be the year that they take the next step. But it's still early! Although it's usually agreed upon that the teams who have it figured out by Thanksgiving are the teams who will likely make the playoffs, that's not always the case. There's still time for Ottawa to get it together.


They might have the postpone their turn around for another night, however, because tonight they go up against the Golden Knights in Vegas. The Knights have the third best record in the league behind the Boston Bruins and New Jersey Devils. Jack Eichel is on a tear and is proving to be the guy that Vegas traded for last season, and Logan Thompson is holding it down in goal during Robin Lehner's absence with a modest 10-3 record, 2.40 GAA, and .920 SV%


I'll take:

O 6.5

Tim Stützle O 2.5 shots on goal

VGK -1.5
