NHL Weekly Free Picks: January 28 - January 30

It was a Central vs Pacific Division match on Monday night, as the Blues lost out 3-1 to the Canucks. The Blues are now the overall leaders in the Western Conference but are still behind the Penguins and Capitals in the East.

This week brings us a number of great games, with the St Louis Blues, Dallas Stars, Maple Leafs and much more in the action as the week unfolds. We kick things off with the Blues on the road to the Flames.

Can the Flames beat the Blues in Calgary?


St Louis Blues (2.51) @ Calgary Flames (2.42)

The Blues will travel North looking to snap a 3-game losing streak. Losses to the Flyers, Avalanche and finally 3-1 to the Canucks in their last, complete a disappointing week for the Stanley Cup holders.

Zach Sanford was the only goalscorer in the tie, bringing his season total up to 5 goals and 10 assists. St Louis is led in goals by David Perron in offense, with 21 goals and 29 assists so far. Ryan O’Reilly is the only player to lead Perron in assists for the Blues, on 34.

The Flames are 26-19-5 for the 2019/20 campaign so far. They’ve had a turbulent season, but things have started to level out a bit. They’ll enter the game at the Scotiabank Saddledome off the back of a loss to the Sens, losing 5-2.

The NHL betting odds are fairly even for this game. The Flames have the home crowd advantage, but both teams lost their last games so this one will be interesting.

Take the Blues to snap their losing streak here.

Toronto Maple Leafs (2.73) @ Dallas Stars (2.26)

The NHL betting odds are quite even, largely due to the fact both teams are looking for a second win in a row and sit around the middle of their respective divisions.

The Dallas Stars sit ninth in the NHL power rankings, as they go 7-3-0 in their last ten games. They took the game 3-2 in overtime against the Tampa Bay Lightning, with Jamie Benn picking up two goals to take his tally to 14 goals and 11 assists for the season.

The Maple Leafs go 26-17-7 for the season outright. They’ll travel to Dallas looking to make it two wins in their last two, having beaten the Nashville Predators 5-2 in their last.

Toronto’s top goal scorers continued to add to their tallies for the season, with Zach Hyman (13 goals, 10 assists), William Nylander (23 goals, 22 assists) and the audacious Auston Matthews (35 goals, 23 assists) putting up goals.

Expect the Stars to win at the American Airlines Center.
