The Flyers and Avalanche will square off in a New Year’s Eve battle and we’re right on top of the NHL betting details. We’ll break down the specifics on each team, and then disclose a NHL money line betting system that’s gone 28-9 during the past five seasons.

NHL New Year’s Eve in the “Mile High City”
The Colorado Avalanche will host the Philadelphia Flyers on New Year’s Eve with the opening faceoff slated for 9:05 PM ET. According to the NHL odds at 5Dimes, Colorado is a -130 money line favorite, and the posted total is 5.5.


Holding Serve on the Road Swing
Tonight will be the Philadelphia Flyers 5th of 7 consecutive games on the road, and they’ve gone a respectable 2-2 thus far. Although, the Flyers entire body of work on the road this season leaves a lot to be desired. They’ve gone a terrible 6-14 against the money line on the road since the 2014-2015 NHL campaign began. One of the more glaring weaknesses pertaining to the Flyers on the road has been their slow starts. They’ve been outscored 43-27 during the first two periods on the road this season.


Avalanche Search for Positives
The Colorado Avalanche shocked nearly everyone by winning the Central Division last season, and earning the #2 overall seed in the Western Conference playoff bracket. However, this season has been an absolute disaster thus far. The Avalanche enters tonight having gone 13-23 against the money line. Colorado comes off a 3-0 loss at St. Louis in their previous game, and will be facing an opponent tonight which has gone a terrible 14-22 against the money line on the year. That’s good news for the Avalanche, considering they’ve gone 35-14 versus an opponent with a losing record, and 5-0 when coming off a loss by 2-goals or more during the past two seasons.


NHL Money Line Betting System
These teams met once this season and Philadelphia was a 4-3 home winner. Philadelphia enters today with a .389 winning percentage this season, and the Avalanche are at .361. The previous head-to-head result, and each team’s winning percentage, leads us to an extremely profitable NHL money line betting system. The consistency in which this angle has won is difficult to ignore, and will be vital in making my NHL picks for today.

Any team (Colorado) playing in the 1st half of the season, playing with same season revenge stemming from a loss in which they allowed 4-goals or more, and both teams in the contest have a winning percentage of between .300 to .400, has seen that team go 28-9 (75.7%) against the money line during the past five seasons. That team also has an impressive +1.3 goal per game differential in those 37-contests. This exact scenario has occurred four times already this season, and has won on each of those occasions.

NHL Pick: Colorado Avalanche -130 over the Philadelphia on the money line at 5Dimes.
