NHL Best Bets: August 1
Andrew Dewhirst brings you his best bets for today's NHL slate
Florida Panthers vs New York Islanders, 4 pm EST
The Islanders won all 3 of their meetings with the Panthers during the regular season, with the Islanders giving up only 1 goal in each of their meetings. Florida also really struggled against in their exhibition game giving up 4 goals on 13 shots, early in the game.
Pick: Islanders -115
Montreal Canadians vs Pittsburgh Penguins, 8 pm EST
There is no doubt that the Penguins should win this game. The Penguins won 2 of the 3 regular-season meetings(The Penguins didn’t have Crosby for 2 of those games) and I am surprised that this is only at -1.
Pick: Penguins -1 +165
