When betting on the NHL, it can occasionally be hard to find value in a team that’s either heavily preferred or is an important underdog on the moneyline. Luckily for us, many sportsbooks provide us a puckline, which is the same thought as a point spread in sports like soccer and basketball. The difference, obviously, is that scores from hockey are much lower and the spread is almost always set at 1.5. This implies that in order to cash a spread bet, a favorite must win by an underdog shouldn’t lose by more than one.
Each week I will update every group’s puckline documents and gains as we advance through the 2016-17 season. Below is an investigation of a few of the very best puckline tendencies in the NHL along with a table containing every team’s puckline record.
Here’s one team to goal and a single group to fade during the final week of regular-season playwith. Team into TargetToronto Maple Leafs: although not the most lucrative puckline team in the league, the Maple Leafs have one of the best spread records in the league with 43 puckline victories. They have five matches to play with this week and they will have to win almost every one to ensure a spot in the playoffs.
The matches in their docket seem tough on the surface since they’ll watch the Capitals, Lightning, Penguins and Blue Jackets but with all but one of these teams clinching a postseason berth, the Leafs will probably face a fair share of copy goaltending down the stretch.
Furthermore, you’re going to be getting greater value in those games if the Leafs are deemed the favorite because the people will still bet about the big-market teams that have won all year.
Team to FadePittsburgh Penguins: It’s been well over a week since the Penguins earned a puckline win and I’m expecting they finish the regular season without a different one. They’ll be enjoying some distressed teams and they’re a banged-up squad.
At this point, it is unlikely they capture the Caps and their matchup with the Blue Jackets is all but locked in. They would probably like to finish in second and get home-ice advantage for the first round but with Kris Letang still on the shelf, that may not be a chance.
