When gambling on the NHL, it can occasionally be difficult to find value at a team that is either heavily preferred or is an important underdog on the moneyline. Fortunately for us, most sportsbooks provide us a puckline, that’s the same thought for a point spread in sport like football and basketball. The difference, of course, is that scores in hockey are much lower and the spread is almost always set at 1.5. This implies that so as to cash a spread bet, a favorite must win by two or an underdog must not lose by more than one.
Each week I will update every team’s puckline documents and profits as we advance throughout the 2016-17 season. Below is an investigation of some of the very best puckline trends in the NHL along with a table comprising each group’s puckline record.
Here is 1 team to goal and a single team to fade during the last week of regular-season playwith. Team into TargetToronto Maple Leafs: although not the most profitable puckline team from the league, the Maple Leafs have among the very best spread records in the league with 43 puckline successes. They have five games to play with this week and they’ll have to win almost every one to ensure a spot in the playoffs.
The matches in their docket seem tough on the outside as they’ll watch the Capitals, Lightning, Penguins and Blue Jackets but with all but one of those teams clinching a postseason berth, the Leafs will likely face a reasonable share of copy goaltending down the stretch.
Additionally, you’ll be getting more than enough value in these games if the Leafs are deemed the most preferred because the people will still bet on the big-market teams which have won all year.
Team into FadePittsburgh Penguins: It’s been well over a week since the Penguins got a puckline win and I am expecting they finish the regular season without another one. They’ll be enjoying some desperate teams and they’re a banged-up squad.
At this point, it’s unlikely they catch the Caps and their matchup with the Blue Jackets is all but locked in. They would probably like to finish in minute and get home-ice benefit for the first round but with Kris Letang still on the shelf, that might not be a chance.
