Monday NHL Bets: Peterson picks Montreal Canadiens vs Calgary Flames, Colorado Avalanche vs St. Louis Blues
Montreal Canadiens (+105) @ Calgary Flames (-125), 6:30 pm EDT
Both the Montreal Canadiens (20-17-9) and the Calgary Flames (21-23-5) are two teams that have had plenty of struggle this season. On Monday night, Calgary will attempt to complete a full three-game sweep over the Canadiens. Montreal is 3-7 in their last ten games while Calgary is 5-5. The Flames are clearly playing better hockey and should successfully defeat the Canadiens for a third straight time as Montreal continues to look extremely vulnerable.
PICK: Calgary Flames (-125)
Colorado Avalanche (-155) @ St. Louis Blues (+135), 7 pm EDT
Although the Colorado Avalanche (31-10-4) fell 5-3 to the St. Louis Blues (20-19-6) on Saturday, they remain the hottest team in the NHL, going 16-4 in their last twenty games. Saturday's loss to the Blues was largely due to the Avalanche playing undisciplined and committing a few senseless penalties that cost them dearly. A handful of the Blues goals came on Power Plays with a man advantage. Expect a much more disciplined effort this time around from Colorado and take the Moneyline here as it is a safer bet than the Puck Line.
PICK: Colorado Avalanche (-155)
