“And yet again! Winning day, no market value. I’ll happily take this end of those trades for the rest of the season if it means bringing returns back.” Apparently, I did not say this clearly enough to the hockey gods. Found value on both wagers yesterday, only for it to be a losing day at 1-1. Just the way it goes!

Starting off with two new progression series today on East division teams. The Islanders moneyline is in play against a two-set with their crosstown rival. The Devils team total will also get two shots to hit against the Penguins.

We are rounding into the final month’ish of the season. All teams have less than 20 games left. The Canucks have been the most sidelined squad in April, and they will certainly have the most ground to make up. And all of this news is coming within the context of what will be the most unique trade deadline ever. With no teams playing outside of their division until round three, teams will be affected less by deals within their ‘conference’ than in any normal season. The Canadian government has also lessened quarantine restrictions for NHL players coming from the States to not limit the trade potential for their clubs… yes, we care about the game that much.

*The picks reflect the line at the moment the writer made the play on BetOnline (visit our BetOnline Review) Since the lines might vary, don’t forget to refer back to our NHL odds.


Always risking 1u, never ‘to win’ 1u. If I expose two, that still remains risking 2u, not betting 2.5 to win 1 simply because the price is shorter than what I have. A standard stake here is 1u = 1% of your bankroll. This will keep you in the game instead of busting out every other day because you decided to be stupid and put your entire bankroll down on 8 wagers. If you have worse prices don’t bet more to compensate. Please do not attach my plays in parlays, you are costing yourself extra money trying to cut corners.
