NHL Games Today Tuesday

Tuesday night's NHL schedule is jam-packed, with 13 games between 7pm and 10pm EDT. Some matchups will be tough to call, while others have a clear favourite in the sportsbooks.

We'll be breaking down each of the matchups with the best NHL odds you'll find on the market and some key information that could help you place your bets. Check out all the latest odds here.

Florida Panthers @ Philadelphia Flyers

Kicking things off this Tuesday, is the Panthers-Flyers showdown in Philly.

After a convincing win yesterday over Detroit, Florida continued a great run to a 3-game win streak and will be looking to stay on form tonight.

A 7pm puck drop is set, with the Flyers skating on as underdogs at +150 in the sportsbooks. The Panthers sit at -170 for the matchup and should take this game with a multi-goal lead.

Carolina Hurricanes @ New York Rangers

Also booked for 7pm is the Hurricanes-Rangers game in New York. Carolina will travel to the Big Apple as favourites to take the win, but with a turbulent few weeks, this matchup is tough to predict.

The Hurricanes took a one-goal victory over the Flyers at the weekend, and should skate on with fresh legs at the puck drop after a 3 day rest.

Meanwhile the Rangers hold a 4-game win streak and are very close favourites at -110. Carolina will be looking to upset the New Yorkers, but at just -105 in the odds, it doesn't get much closer than this.

Tampa Bay Lightning @ Montreal Canadians

From close calls to big favourites, the Lightning-Canadians game is expected to end in a Tampa Bay win.

The Lightning currently have a huge weighting in their favour at -270 in the sportsbooks, while Montreal will give you the bigger payout if they steal the victory, with odds of +225.

Despite an upset loss against the Devils on Sunday night, expect the Floridians to take a convincing win in Canada tonight.

Minnesota Wild @ New Jersey Devils

Speaking of the Devils, they're predicted to continue their winning form from the weekend as they take on Minnesota at home.

BetRivers currently have the best odds on the market if you want to wager on the favourites - with -167 - while DraftKings are offering the best odds for the Wild - with +150.

Nashville Predators @ Buffalo Sabres

Continuing the 7pm puck-drops is the Predators-Sabres game in Buffalo.

Nashville will travel to the Queen City as +125 underdogs, despite the Sabres 3-game losing streak. If you think Buffalo will turn the tide and get back into the win column, you'll find them at -140 on BetMGM.

Ottawa Senators @ Boston Bruins

The Bruins will host the Senators in Beantown at 7pm EDT.

Although they broke a 5-game losing streak yesterday, Ottawa are tiled as heavy underdogs in this matchup at +225 in the odds.

Meanwhile the Bruins are strong favourites at -286 in the Unibet sportsbook. This doesn't come as much of a surprise after a convincing 7-0 win over the Sabres at the weekend.

Columbus Blue Jackets @ Washington Capitals

The last 7pm matchup, will see the Blue Jackets travel to the Capital in another mismatch.

Washington are clearly favoured by the bookies at -245 in the odds, while Columbus will land a big payout if they steal the win, at +210.

Toronto Maple Leafs @ New York Islanders

At 7:30pm EDT we'll see the Maple Leafs take on the Islanders in New York.

This is billed to be a fairly even matchup, with Toronto listed as slight favourites with odds of -124, while the Islanders are at +110.

Both sides have been up and down in recent games, making this a tough one to predict.

Detroit Red Wings @ St. Louis Blues

Following the game in the Big Apple, Detroit will take on St. Louis in another close game.

After only scoring 3 goals in their last 2 games - both of which delivered a loss to their tally - the Red Wings come in as slight underdogs at +125 in the WynnBet sportsbook.

Meanwhile, the Blues have been in good form - scoring 8 in their last 2 matchups - and look to continue form into this evening. You'll find them at -135 on DraftKings, as the best odds on the market.

Arizona Coyotes @ Winnipeg Jets

The second 8pm puck drop will pit the Coyotes against the Jets in Winnipeg.

The Jets are clear favourites in this matchup, with odds of -255, while Arizona are expected to break their 4-game win streak with odds of +240 on BetRivers.

Seattle Kraken @ Dallas Stars

Following the likely Arizona loss, is the Kraken-Stars showdown in Dallas.

The Stars are looking to come out on top in this one, after winning a close battle against Calgary at the weekend. They sit at -152 in the sportsbooks.

On the other hand, Seattle come off a 4-day rest from their defeat to the Oilers but are predicted to land in the loss column once again.

Calgary Flames @ Anaheim Ducks

One of two 10pm matchups will see the Flames take on the Ducks in Anaheim.

The bookies are pegging Calgary to take home the victory who will be looking to turn the tide from the 8-2 loss to the Kings. You'll see them at -205 in the BetRivers sportsbook.

Meanwhile, the Ducks are the underdogs at +185, who are set to stick to their losing ways.

Vegas Golden Knights @ Vancouver Canucks

The Golden Knights come in as slight favourites against Vancouver, despite losing 5-1 to the Canucks in their last matchup.

The Knights have been on a good run in recent weeks and are expected to continue this heading to Vancouver. They currently sit at -130 in the BetRivers sportsbook, while the Canucks are at +115 across the board.
