Ron Raymond here with your NHL Hockey Betting Preview and Predictions for November 3, 2008. 

Here are today's hockey picks.

Ron's straight up Record: 90 wins 70 losses

*Note: Ron went 4-2 on Sunday.

Columbus vs. NY Islanders

Ron's Comment: The Islanders gave up a 4-1 third period lead on Saturday night to the Montreal Canadiens and lost the game 5-4. Whenever you have a total collapse like the Islanders did on Saturday, just carries over and over to each game until there's a culture change. The best player on the ice tonight is wearing number 61 and he's a Blue jacket! The UNDER is 10-2-1 for the Blue Jackets as a road team the last 4 Years and they are coming off 2 or more OVERS.

Prediction: Columbus 3 NY Islanders 2

Colorado vs. Chicago

Ron's Comment:  OK, gut check time for the Avalanche tonight and maybe playing in back to back games is a good thing for Colorado, as they can put last night's 5-3 lost to San Jose behind them. The Avs are playing against their old coach Joey Quenneville and Chicago has played some cup cake games the last few times out. Ryan Smyth stated to the Denver Post the team played strong last night, but conceded they got caught watching the game on some shifts. Therefore, look for the Avs to come out stronger tonight and great line value on Budaj who is 4-0 lifetime vs. Chicago. The Avs are 8-2 (SU as a Road team vs. a Western conference opponent and coming off a 3 game losing streak since '98.

Prediction: Colorado 3 Chicago 2

Buffalo vs. New Jersey

Ron's Comment:  Life without Brodeur starts for the New Jersey Devils and now the Devils will see what type of team they are without their all star goalie. The Devils looked very slow vs. a quick Leafs team last Friday and the Sabres are a quicker team then the Leafs. Buffalo finally got off their 3 game losing streak last game, as they shutout the Capitals 5-0. The Sabres are 11-5 SU the last 2 years as a road underdog after scoring 5 or more Goals For in their last game.

Prediction: Buffalo 5 New Jersey 2
