Do you want to know what teams are making the most money in the NHL Eastern Conference recently? How about a couple of teams to steer clear of right now? We have those answers in the must read NHL betting article.

Hot NHL Bets in the East

Buffalo Sabres
Although the Sabres are still a bottom feeder in the Eastern Conference, they’ve been a huge money maker over the last 2-weeks. Buffalo has gone 5-1 in their last 6-games, and was a money line underdog in the NHL Odds of +143 or more in each of those 6-contests. Ironically, the one game they lost during that sequence was versus the Winnipeg Jets, and that was at the lowest number of +143. By wagering $100 a game against the money line on the Sabres during this recent stretch, you would’ve seen a profit of $972.

 

New York Islanders
The Islanders have gone a terrific 11-2 against the money line over their last 13-games. The winning run began with a 3-2 overtime win at Anaheim on November 5th. Since that time, by wagering $100 a game on the Islanders against the money line would’ve shown you a profit of $1176. Despite that torrid run, they were installed as a money line underdog in 6 of those 13-games, and that’s made them one of the best NHL picks over the last three plus weeks.

 

Pittsburgh Penguins
The Penguins have gone 13-4 versus the money line over their last 17-games. However, they’re too often installed as a large money line favorite to be considered a NHL betting value. During the aforementioned 17-game stretch, they closed as an underdog just one time, and that was at mere price of +103 in a 4-1 win at Minnesota.  This hot streak has been great for the Pittsbugh Penguins in the standings, but $100 bettors have attained a profit of only $626, that makes them a high risk and small reward proposition.

 

Recent Eastern Money Guzzlers

Columbus Blue Jackets
The Jackets have been the biggest early season disappointment in the Eastern Conference. They’re currently enduring a 6-game losing streak. As a matter of fact, since getting off to a 4-2 start to the season, they’ve gone a miserable 2-15 against the money line since, and based on $100 per game wager on the money line, NHL bettors would be down $1237 during that 17-game tailspin.

 

Philadelphia Flyers
If Columbus is the biggest disappointment in the Eastern Conference thus far, then Philadelphia is a close second. The Flyers have gone 1-8 versus the money line in their last 9-games. During that time, placing $100 a game on the Flyers against the money has resulted in a loss of $814.
