Anaheim Ducks vs Toronto Maple Leafs
The Maple Leafs are on fire right now. Having won 8 times in their last 9 games. They are without a doubt in the top 3 teams in the NHL. Having a record of 18-5, they stand in second place in the Eastern Conference just behind the Boston Bruins who are also having an amazing season. Their best players this season have been Mitchell Marner, Auston Matthews and of course John Tavares.
Regarding the Ducks, things couldn´t be worse for them. Standing at the bottom of the Pacific division with a record of 7-18, they only have won one game in their last 8. They will have to improve a lot if they want to get out of last place. However, I really can´t see that happening since they don´t have the resources for that.

How the game will play out
This will be the second time that these teams are going to face each other. Surprisingly, the Ducks won the first match at the beginning of the season, however, this time I really can´t see them getting a win. I would have to go with the Toronto Maple Leafs.
My pick: The Ducks with a +1.5 puckline at Betsafe.
Edmonton Oilers vs Nashville Predators
The Oilers are having a solid season so far, of course, they have many flaws as I previously stated in past articles, nevertheless, I think that they will improve with the help of Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl who have been two terrific players for the Oilers this season. They stand in fourth place in the Pacific Division with a record of 16-12. If they improve their defence they will become much better.
Regarding the Predators, they are doing ok, I wasn´t expecting much for them before the start of the season If I`m 100% honest with you. They are coming to play this game after two consecutive defeats, so I think that they will do whatever it takes to get back on track soon as possible. They stand in fifth place in the Central division with a record of 12-11.

How the game will play out
For this game I think everyone would agree that the Oilers are stronger, of course, the Predators can always bring problems if the Oilers aren´t careful, however, I don´t see that happening. This will be the second time that they are going to play against each other, the Oilers won the first match by 7-4 back in November.
My pick: The Edmonton Oilers puckline of -1.5 with iBet.
Golden Knights vs Winnipeg Jets
And finally, the best game for this week in my opinion is the Golden Knights against the Jets. Two of the best teams in the NHL right now, the Golden Knights and the Jets are having a very impressive season so far. The Golden Knights stand in first place in the Pacific Division with a record of 20-9 and even though they had some losses in the last few games, this team is playing better than they were last year. I have to say that I`m very impressed with Chandler Stephenson, Adin Hill and Logan Thompson, they have been the best players so far in the Golden Knights, at least in my opinion.
On the other hand, the Jets are also in first place in their division, in this case in the Central division with a record of 18-8 and nothing seems like they are going to slow down. They only lost once in their last 7 games.

How the game will play out
Even though both teams are playing well, this will be the third time that these teams are going to play against each other. The Knights have won the two consecutive games that they played, so I really think that they can do it once again.
My pick: The Winnipeg Jets Moneyline bet of -125 with PowerPlay Sports.
