BEST NHL BETS

As usual, don’t overthink these ones. You might take a hit here and there, but overall, these teams will pay you back handsomely.

Nashville Predators
There’s a lot to love here. The Predators are on a three-game winning streak on the road, and return home where they’ve only lost two games so far this year. They have some great matchups which will reduce the value of the line against them as well. Home stands against a reeling Pittsburgh team and a Washington squad that’s being outscored at a rabid pace. Bet away.

Next Games: vs. Pittsburgh (11/11), vs. Washington (11/14)

New Jersey Devils
The streaking New Jersey Devils are stuck in the gutter right now with a three-game losing skid that has many scurrying away. Not so fast. They have a terrific slate over the next three games which includes pretty bad teams. They host the wobbly Oilers and the downtrodden Panthers before packing up ship and heading to Chicago next week. All three of those teams have leaky defences, and the Devils are still one of the best scoring teams in the NHL. Business is about to pick up for the Devils so hop on board.

Next Games: vs. Edmonton (11/9), vs. Florida (11/10, at Chicago (11/12)

St. Louis Blues
By consensus the Blues are currently the best team in the league, and that’s going to heavily inflate their moneylines. Fortunately, the Blues are also dynamite against the puckline with a league leading 12-4 ATS record. It’s a tough pill to swallow, but the Blues also have an absolutely tempting chunk of schedule coming up. Most times the moneyline is the easier way to bet on NHL hockey, but with the Blues the only way to get value is by taking the spread. In their last four wins, they’ve averaged a +2.25 scoring differential over a 4-1 SU streak.

Next Gams: vs. Arizona (11/9), vs. NYI (11/11), at Calgary (11/13)

WAIT AND SEE

These are the teams that are either worth betting through the weekend or are important stay-away plays. You never know what kind of momentum crops up and a lot of that depends on how they fare in Wednesday’s slate.

Toronto Maple Leafs
The Leafs began as the league’s top team with a 7-1 SU outburst that has leveled off tremendously in recent weeks. Since then, the young Maple Leafs have fallen to just 3-6 SU in their last 9 games. A lot of it is that goalie Frederik Andersen has faced more high-quality shots than any other netminder in the league this year. The NHL has a metric for this called “high-danger shots”, and Andersen has seen 58 this year, letting in 11. Until Toronto can better protect their goalie’s sanity, they’re better to steer clear from despite an inviting schedule.

Next Games: vs. Minnesota (11/8), vs. Boston (11/10), at Boston (11/11)

San Jose Sharks
The Sharks are riding a beautiful four-game win streak heading in to tonight’s clash against the Tampa Bay Lightning, which will set up their momentum for matchups against the Canucks and Kings, who have also been riding pretty high. The Sharks are either going to see their streak continue by beating the Lightning tonight, or they’re a stay-away team until further notice. It’s probably going to be the latter to be honest, which also makes them a bet-against property for most.

Next Games: vs. Tampa (11/8), vs. Vancouver (11/11), at Los Angeles (11/12)

WORST NHL BETS

Just don’t bother until further notice.

Chicago Blackhawks
By far one of the bigger public teams based on roster strength and name value alone, the Chicago Blackhawks have been dismal all season long. They’re just 7-6-2 on the season and are a brutal 7-8 ATS as well. The major problem is that you never know when to expect a good product from them. They recently shutout Philly and Minnesota in back-to-back efforts but lost three games prior to that and just got shutout by Montreal, arguably the worst team in the league. They’re worse than a bet-against feature. They’re a complete stay-away because of how volatile their performances seem to be.

Next Games: at Philadelphia (11/9), at Carolina (11/11) vs. New Jersey (11/12), vs. NYR (11/15)

Pittsburgh Penguins
This is as friendly of a reminder as I can give that the Pittsburgh Penguins simply aren’t worth investing your time and money in to right now. They’re a terrific 5-0-1 at home this season, but have been all over the map in terms of consistency, and are travelling this weekend. Their -1.1 goal differential is one of the biggest shockers of the 2017-18 NHL season so far. Until they show some measure of stability, you can’t trust them.

Next Games: at Washington (11/10), at Nashville (11/11), vs. Buffalo
