Saturday’s NHL Picks – November 10th, 2018
Back for my second week of picks at DobberHockey. Last week was rough, as the 3-3 record would indicate. But the saving grace was that both my Gold and Silver picks came through, albeit barely.
Interestingly enough, two of the teams I’m betting against this week have been two of the clubs who’ve been playing a lot better to start the year than most experts projected — but that’s quickly changing: one squad can’t keep pucks out of their own net, and the other is in the news more for off-ice reasons than for its performance on it (cough, Ottawa, cough).
Regardless, this Saturday’s loaded NHL board includes a total of 11 matchups for us to choose from, including three matinee affairs. So make sure you are strapped in early and ready to make some loot.

Before you start spitting hate on Twitter, yes, I realize the Senators came out and laid a beatdown on a good New Jersey Devils team a day after their Uber fiasco, but they followed that up by laying an egg against the Vegas Golden Knights two nights later.
Don’t get it twisted: Ottawa is just downright bad, with holes up and down the lineup and an ageing Craig Anderson in net, Guy Boucher and Co. are in for a very long
