NHL odds today: March 30

Winnipeg Jets @ Buffalo Sabres, 7 p.m. ET

  • Puck Line: Jets -1.5
  • O/U: 6.5
  • Jets last 10: 7-3-0
  • Jets ATS: 37-30
  • Sabres last 10: 5-3-2
  • Sabres ATS: 39-28
  • The Pick: Jeff Skinner over 0.5 points
  • Why?: Jeff Skinner is enjoying a resurgence this season in Buffalo, indicating that he can regain his 40-goal form from 2018-19. The 29-year-old has six points in his last five games after going six without a point.

New York Rangers @ Detroit Red Wings, 7:30

  • Puck Line: Rangers -1.5
  • O/U: 6.5
  • Rangers last 10: 7-3-0
  • Rangers ATS: 34-33
  • Red Wings last 10: 2-6-2
  • Red Wings ATS: 27-39
  • The Pick: Chris Kreider over 0.5 points
  • Why?: The Blueshirts are coming off an impressive road win against the Pittsburgh Penguins on Tuesday and have a bit of a reprieve in their back-to-back against the lowly Red Wings. Chris Kreider, in the midst of a career season, has 11 points in his last eight games — and now he goes up against a Detroit team that has the second-worst defense in the entire NHL.

Vegas Golen Knights @ Seattle Kraken, 10 p.m.

  • Puck Line: Knights -1.5
  • O/U: 6
  • Golden Knights last 10: 4-6-0
  • Golden Knights ATS: 27-41
  • Kraken last 10: 4-5-1
  • Kraken ATS: 30-36
  • The Pick: Knights Moneyline
  • Why?: I wouldn’t trust either team as far as I could throw them this season, and the Knights have lost each of their last six road games. But Vegas can get some confidence going against the expansion Kraken.

San Jose Sharks @ Arizona Coyotes, 10 p.m.

  • Puck Line: Sharks -1.5
  • O/U: 6
  • Sharks last 10: 5-3-2
  • Sharks ATS: 34-31
  • Coyotes last 10: 3-6-1
  • Coyotes ATS: 33-33
  • The Pick: Sharks Moneyline
  • Why?: The Sharks have failed to cover the puck line in each of their last five games against Central Division opponents, which makes this a tough game to pick seeing as they’re on the road. But San Jose has won each of their last nine games they’ve been tabbed as favorites.


St. Louis Blues @ Vancouver Canucks, 10 p.m.

  • Puck Line: Canucks -1.5
  • O/U: 6
  • Blues last 10: 4-4-2
  • Blues ATS: 36-29
  • Canucks last 10: 3-4-3
  • Canucks ATS: 39-29
  • The Pick: David Perron anytime scorer
  • Why?: David Perron continues to stay hot, and he’s rewarded us when we’ve picked him in the past. The Blues’ forward has scored in eight of his last 10 games.
