Best Bets in the NHL Since the Start of March Leave a comment

On the lookout for a nhl odds bet as the season winds down? I have summarized and broken some of the best straight-up, puckline and OVER/UNDER wagers since the start of March for you to target or fade in your discretion.
Best Straight-Up TeamCalgary Flames (7-1): In case you have been gambling that the Calgary Flames moneyline the previous month — congratulations, you are probably set to retire. The Flames are 12-1 straight up in their past 13 games and they have already begun another winning streak after their 10-gamer ended from the Bruins last week.
Bettor beware, though, the Flames’ next three games will come on the road against the Capitals, Predators and Blues, so be certain that you pick your spots carefully. An approach I’d take would be to fade them in Washington and should they lose, fostering their value a bit heading into Nashville and St. Louis, them back as the underdog.
This is starting to feel like more than lightning in a bottle to the Flames. They are a team that can roll four lines if desired and that has a fantastic mix of ability, speed and endurance. If Brian Elliott keeps up his roll that has seen him move 14-1-1 using a .935 save percentage since the all-star fracture, Calgary can do something similar to what a former Flames team did circa 2004.
Worst Straight-Up TeamNew Jersey Devils (1-8): By losing 10 straight games until their win over the Flyers past Thursday, the Devils have all but locked up last position in the Eastern Conference and procured a fantastic shot at winning that year’s draft lottery.
What they have also been doing is dropping bettors an incredible amount of money and if you’ve been absurd enough to back them any moment throughout the last month or so — I’m sorry, but it appears like it is back to the grindstone for you. Transferring an astounding 1-12 straight up in their past 13 matches, the Devils have nowhere to go but up and with seven of their past 11 games set to be played at their home (the Prudential Center), you can probably go on and make the most of them as home dogs in a couple of situations.
New Jersey is a commendable 14-20 up in friendly territory this year so backing them from groups such as the Hurricanes, Stars, Jets and Flyers may end up being quite rewarding.
Finest Puckline TeamBuffalo Sabres (7-3): Do not allow this trend disturb your gambling patterns a lot of, the Sabres are still a bad team, they’ve just been losing the majority of their games by less than two this month. This is because Buffalo has become the underdog in seven of its 10 games in March and at those seven games the Sabres are 5-2 against the spread.
By no signifies is that a very profitable bet — unless you’re hitting it or placing a large amount of money on it.
Buffalo ends out its schedule with only three more home games so your chances to capture the Sabres as puckline underdogs are running out. If they’re given +1.5 in your home, however, jump around it like a Bills fan would on a table at a tailgate party. The boys in Buffalo have barely been outscored in their home ice for the season and should continue that trend as they struggle for a fast fading playoff place.
Worst Puckline TeamWashington Capitals and Los Angeles Kings (2-7): The Capitals have a talk of both of these following two honors but the first is they — and their bettors — are unhappy about as they have lost five of their last seven matches and cashed just two spread tickets this month.
Among the greatest contributors to this trend is the degree of competition the Caps have been playing. Five of their last six competitions were groups that were at a playoff spot if they played with them but with games coming from teams such as the Coyotes and Avalanche, don’t hesitate to re-familiarize yourself with the Caps’ puckline. Washington has the best goal differential in hockey and will want to get back on track going into the playoffs.
In terms of the Kings, I’d keep disappearing them. They’ve been improving a lot, in terms of their record, but they’re still not scoring. Bookmakers have been setting them as the preferred more and more and as a team which scores only 2.40 goals per match, they’ll always have a difficult time beating a team by more than a goal.
