Here are the top hockey bets your can make today from a handicapper who went a perfect 3-0 with his NHL picks at SBR on Friday with winners on Toronto, Detroit, and Anaheim.
Ottawa Senators vs. Boston Bruins 7:05 PM ET
NHL Money Line: Boston -160 and Ottawa +135
NHL Total: Over 5.0 (-130) and Under 5.0 (+120)
This selection all revolves around what the Senators have accomplished recently, and on the season. Ottawa has amassed 32 or more shots on goal in each of their previous 5-games, and is averaging 30.3 shots on net per game on the season. The Ottawa power play unit is converting on a respectable 20.5% of their man advantage situations for the year. This sets up an extremely profitable money line betting system which can be used in making one of your NHL picks today.
Any road team (Ottawa) that averages 29 or more shots on goal per game, converts 17% or more of their power play opportunities, and had 30 or more shots on goal in each of their previous 5-games, has gone 43-24 (64.2%) against the money line during the past 5-seasons.
