There is one thing to keep in mind about the free selections on this page. They are just a small taste of what our experts have to offer. While the free plays are still expected to win, they are not the strongest plays from each expert. Their best bets of the day are for their premium clients.

Free Pick on Oilers
Free Total Annihilator On Flyers vs Islanders under 5½ -120
Tuesday NHL Free play. My selection is on New Jersey +1.5 goals over Dallas at 7:05 pm et on Tuesday.
I have no problem laying the juice to grab the insurance goal with the Devils on home ice Tuesday night. While New Jersey is just 10-12 on home ice this season, it has actually outscored the opposition by a narrow margin of 0.1 goals. In other words, the Devils are playing competitive hockey night in, night out here in Newark. The Stars are hot, winners of three consecutive games. With that being said, they're also just a few games removed from a 5-3 home loss to the lowly Canadiens (as a -360 favorite). Dallas checks in 7-13 on the road this season where it has been outscored by 1.2 goals on average. When playing their third game in five days this season, the Stars average just 2.0 goals and have been outscored by an average margin of 0.4 goals (eight-game sample size). While they have won three in a row, they're still a miserable 4-14 in their last 18 games when coming off a win going back to last season, outscored by 1.6 goals on average in that situation. The Devils have lost four of their last five games but they've been right there in all but one of those games, only dropping one decision by multiple goals over that stretch. Here, we'll note that despite their struggles over the years, they're 141-122 when coming off four losses in their last five contests, as is the case here. Take New Jersey +1.5 goals.
