NHL Preview, Odds & Picks for December 6: After Firing Their Coach, Flyers Look to End Eight-Game Skid in Clash With Colorado

By | December 6, 2021

It doesn’t feel like it, but we’re already almost a third of the way through the NHL regular season. There’s still plenty of action ahead on the ice and at the NHL betting window, and tonight’s schedule features six games.

The Colorado Avalanche (+600 at FanDuel Sportsbook) are the current betting favorite to win the Stanley Cup, coming in ahead of the Atlantic Division-leading Florida Panthers (+900), the two-time defending Stanley Cup champion Tampa Bay Lightning (also +900), the Vegas Golden Knights (+1000), and the Toronto Maple Leafs (also +1000). Six other teams currently have Stanley Cup odds of +2000 or better, with the other three division leaders (Metropolitan: Washington Capitals, Central: Minnesota Wild, Pacific: Calgary Flames) all in that bunch.

The Avalanche are nine points back of the Wild in the Central Division, but after a so-so start, they have retaken their spot as Stanley Cup favorites with a 7-2-1 run in their last ten games.

Of that group of Cup contenders, the Avs and Caps are in action tonight. Let’s take a look at tonight’s schedule and which betting options stick out among today’s NHL betting picks.
