Here are today's NHL Picks for Tuesday, October 14, 2008.

Ron's Straight Up Record: 18 wins 16 losses for (53%)
*Note: Ron went 4-3 on Monday and was on the end of both shoot out loses!

Minnesota vs. Atlanta

bet on hockey VS. NHL predictions
(-130)           (5.5)

Keys to selection: The Wild must be getting a bit restless, as they’ve only played 1 game and it was last Saturday at home in a 4-3 win over the Bruins. Backstrom is schedule to get the nod tonight vs. Atlanta and expect Lehtonen to be in nets for the Thrashers. Atlanta is 1-1 on the season and has Brodeur and Devils on deck. Minnesota is a well coached team and they are 31-19 SU during the last 2 Years when they are coming off a 1 goal win.

Prediction: Minnesota 4 Atlanta 2

Philadelphia vs. Pittsburgh

hockey stats VS. Buffalo Sabres picks
(5.5)           (-165)

Keys to selection: The Game of the Night will be played in Pittsburgh and if there’s one thing I can predict with a 100% certainty; a Pennsylvania team will come out of this matchup with 2 points! My money will be on the home team this evening, as Marc-Andre Fleury is 12-5 SU lifetime vs. the Flyers and Philly has had major problems in their last 15 visits to the igloo by going 4-11 SU. Flyers have faced 2 strong opponents in their first 2 games of the season and must now face a third on the road in a building where they have not fared well. The Penguins have done well the last 4 seasons in low scoring games; they are 25-7 SU as a Favorite if the under is 2-0 or less in their last 2 games.

Prediction: Pittsburgh 3 Philadelphia 2

Colorado vs. Calgary

NHL hockey betting VS. bet on hockey
(5.5)           (-145)

Keys to selection: Besides Martin Gerber in Ottawa; here are two other goalies playing under stress and normally a goalie gets traded or a coach gets fired when a team keeps losing! Peter Budaj has not shown yet his a first class goaltender in the NHL and Kiprusoff can’t continue to have Mike Keenan on his back. Keenan has a history or ruining goalies and it will be interesting to see who will keep their job the longest and my money is on Kipper. Colorado is 0-2 on the season and lost both games by 1 goal. Calgary is coming off a 5-4 lost to Vancouver and they are 23-9 SU the last 3 years at home coming off a 1 goal lost.

Prediction: Calgary 3 Colorado 1

Columbus vs. San Jose

NHL picks VS. hockey picks
(5.0)           (-230)

Keys to selection: Who’s going to chip in the secondary scoring for Columbus this season? They’ve built a solid defense and have a good goaltender in Leclaire, but you can’t win every game 2-1! The Jackets looked great on opening day vs. Dallas, but had not gas in the tank vs. Phoenix the night after. Since they’ve been off since Saturday, I expect the Blue Jackets to have some jump in their legs, but they could be in trouble in back to back games this season if they don’t get more help on offense, as you can’t have Rick Nash play every second shift in the 3rd period in close games on back to back nights. Expect Evgeni Nabokov to be in nets tonight for the Sharks and he’s owned the Blue Jackets with a 14-4 SU record. Furthermore, the Blue Jackets are 1-13 SU vs. San Jose and their only win was on January 8th 2004. Yikes!

Prediction: San Jose 4 Columbus 3

Anaheim vs. L.A. Kings

NHL picks VS. hockey picks
(-150)           (5.0)

Keys to selection: After watching the Anaheim Ducks in their last 2 games, I’ve come to a conclusion they are a slow hockey team and Scott Niedermayer has played very poorly and has made many turnover mistakes. If teams want to beat Anaheim, just skate like the wind, because they have a slow defense and the amount of penalties they take, they will get burned on the power play. The Kings played a decent game vs. the Sharks on Sunday night and lost 1-0 and Labarbera has played good enough to keep the Kings in the game. Tough betting spot for the Ducks tonight; they are 2-8-1 SU as a road team during the month of October after a division game since ‘96.

Prediction: LA Kings 3 Anaheim 2
