NHL betting tips from's expert, including the best bets from Buffalo Sabres at Nashville Predators and Edmonton Oilers at Dallas Stars.

Buffalo Sabres at Nashville Predators (01:00 GMT on Tuesday)

Both the Buffalo Sabres and Nashville Predators have been impressive this season but they are struggling lately. The Sabres (17-7-3, 37 points) have dropped two in a row following a 10-game winning streak to slip to  third spot in the Atlantic Division behind Tampa bay and Toronto. Phil Housley’s wards are hoping to end their three-game trip on a positive note after tasting defeats at Tampa Bay (5-4) and Florida (3-2 OT). Jeff Skinner and Jack Eichel will try to lead the Sabres back on track. Skinner is ranked second to Winnipeg’s Patrik Laine for most goals this season with 20 while Eichel is among the league’s points and assists leaders. The Predators (18-8-1, 37 points), meanwhile, are coming off a 5-2 triumph over the Chicago Blackhawks on Saturday to halt a two-game skid. Nashville zoomed to a 3-0 lead in the first period through goals from Kevin Fiala, Eeli Tolvanen and Ryan Johansen before Craig Smith joined the scoring spree to make it 4-1 after 20 minutes. Austin Watson added an assurance goal for the Central Division leaders in the third period. Peter Laviolette’s side had lost three of four prior to their win over Chicago. Buffalo and Nashville swapped road wins last season. We expect a victory for the Predators in this match-up.

Edmonton Oilers at Dallas Stars (01:30 GMT on Tuesday)

The Edmonton Oilers visit the Dallas Stars at the American Airlines Centre in the second meeting between the two teams in less than a week. They played each other at Rogers Place last Tuesday with the Oilers posting a 1-0 overtime win. Oscar Klefbom scored 2:42 into the extra period to seal the win for Edmonton. The Oilers (13-11-2, 28 points) extended their winning run to three games after edging the Vegas Golden Knights 2-1 on Saturday. Connor McDavid and Ryan Spooner scored for Edmonton as they avenged their earlier loss to Vegas this season. Mikko Koskinen had 31 saves. McDavid now has 14 points and 21 assists. He is expected to get support from Leon Draisaitl and Ryan Nugent-Hopkins in this match-up. The Stars (14-10-3, 31 points), meanwhile, return home after concluding their four-game trip with a 2-1 win at Vancouver on Saturday. Jamie Benn and Alexander Radulov each had a goal in the third period to lead Dallas to their second-straight win. Benn, who leads the team in goals with 10, also had an assist to improve his points total to 21 this season. He is the team’s second-leading scorer behind Tyler Seguin while Radulov is ranked third. We expect a win for Dallas in this game.
