NHL teams will all be off until next Tuesday. It’s a good time to identify some favorable betting situations before we head into the second half of the season. Join us in reading this informative blog that will provide you an edge against future NHL betting odds.
Canes in Funk
The Carolina Hurricanes enter the all-star break on a 5-game losing streak. What’s even more disturbing for Canes backers is they haven’t been competitive throughout this current slump. Carolina was outscored in those 5 defeats by a one-sided cumulative score of 23-5.
Rocky Mountain Low
Colorado is 1-15 in their last 16 games at the Pepsi Center in Denver. The Avalanche possess a brutal -63 goal differential in 46 games this season, and that’s by far an NHL-worst.
Devils Slide at Home Continues
New Jersey has lost 6 consecutive home games at the Prudential Center in Newark. Luckily for the Devils, they’ve won 5 of its last 6 away contests.
Intriguing Road Betting Numbers for Leafs
Despite sustaining a gut-wrenching 2-1 loss at Philadelphia this past Thursday, the Toronto Maple Leafs are 9-2 in their previous 11 road games.
The Vancouver Canucks are coming off a 3-0 loss at Arizona this past Thursday. The Canucks are now a dismal 6-18 on the road during this 2016-2017 NHL campaign. Adding insult to injury, it marked the first time all season that Arizona had won 3 straight games. Having said that, fading Vancouver in their upcoming away games might be a good way to make successful NHL picks.
Rangers Fail to Sustain Hot Streak
You may be surprised to know that the New York Rangers are a disappointing 2-7 this season following 3 straight wins.
Jets Highs and Lows
The good news for Winnipeg backers is that they’re 11-5 in division games thus far. The bad news, Winnipeg is a terrible 11-24 this season against non-division opponents. On another betting note, Winnipeg has stayed under the total in just 1 of its last 9 games.
Inconsistent Habs of Late
The Atlantic Division-leading Montreal Canadiens have lost 5 straight games following a win.
Wild High Scoring Home Games
The Minnesota Wild may be going through an identity change. They’ve been known has a low scoring and defense minded team in recent seasons. Nevertheless, Minnesota has gone over the total in 8 straight home games. Good to keep in mind when checking the NHL Odds.
Entertaining Road Games for Sabres
Buffalo hasn’t seen any of their previous 7 away games stay under the total. As a matter of fact, Buffalo is 10-1 over the total in road tilts this season when facing a team with a win percentage of less than .500.
