Want to know what NHL teams to bet on and which to fade during the final days of regular-season action? How about a couple of suggested wagers pertaining to totals? Check out hockey analyst Ross Benjamin’s NHL betting blog.
The New York Rangers are a tough team to keep down for very long. They’ve gone a terrific 21-8 this season following a loss. As a matter of fact, the Rangers' longest winless streak of the season has been just 3 games and that occurred only once. Additionally, New York is a perfect 8-0 on the road when coming off a loss. Making the Rangers one of your NHL picks in these precise situations has proven to be a highly probable winning ticket.
Odd Trend Points To Fading Caps On Road
The Washington Capitals have amassed an NHL-high 106 points. However, they’ve gone a dismal 1-9 on the road this season when there’s a total of exactly 5.5. Putting that head-scratching ineptness into perspective, Washington hasn’t fared well in away games when facing high-scoring teams. Furthermore, despite their superb 31-8 home record, the Capitals have dropped 8 of their last 13 on the road. Keep an eye on NHL betting odds in this regard, especially considering Washington plays 6 of its remaining 7 games on the road.
Going Wild Following Close Loss
The Minnesota Wild have surely endured a rough patch of late. Nevertheless, Minnesota is a 8-0 at home this season following a one-goal defeat in its previous game.
The Los Angeles Kings have scored 2 goals or less in 6 of their last 7 games. Los Angeles is a dismal 2-10 during its past 12 games when facing a team with a win percentage of better than .500. Combining that with their uninspiring 14-23 road record, which includes losing 4 straight away games, and it’s clear to see why Los Angeles will miss the Stanley Cup playoffs for a second consecutive year.
Over The Total In Beantown
The Boston Bruins have been involved in a plethora of high-scoring games during recent weeks. Boston has stayed 'under' the total in just 7 of its last 26 games. Boston is also 11-4 'over' the total this season when facing an opponent that averages 3.0 or more goals scored per game.
