SPORTS BETTING: NHL Hockey Daily Bettor – FINAL

END OF SEASON

With the playoffs beginning, there aren’t that many games to choose from and the game changes in the playoffs where it’s harder to use past performance to try to predict future performance so I’m going to say, “that’s a wrap” for the Daily Bettor this NHL season. I hope you enjoyed our 17 weeks together as we picked through each game every day for the past 4 months or so. It was a fun and prosperous ride. We’ll see you back here next NHL season.

Hockey Betting Picks: NHL hockey betting game picks and predictions for the National Hockey League. Free best winning hockey bets, Over/Under, Money Line, Puck Line, Odds and Parlay wagers. Hockey bets are published every day. The goal is to win more than we lose week-to-week with each week starting on Monday and ending on Sunday. It’s all about trying to “win the week” here at the Daily Bettor.

Update: Sorry folks, it’s a quiet time in the NHL and the book has been good at setting lines for the few games we have.

Outcome: 0.00

Team(s) Vs. Time (ET) Bet Type Odds Amount Status Result Total
No Bets

Update: Just one game in the NHL as we get ready for the playoffs. We have Toronto favored by 0.33 of a goal over Winnipeg according to our handicapping and with a money line bet currently at a lofty -152, it just isn’t a big enough advantage to take those odds, nor is it such a big advantage that we can tease the odds in our favor on the puck line. The total is spot on too at 5.5 as we’re at 5.8 for a total – so there is no real opportunity there either.

No Bets

Update: It’s not looking good today folks. With just three games to consider, out of all of it, the only game there is anything to work with is Calgary over Vancouver but at -177 for a ML bet on Calgary, that’s just nuts. If odds like that don’t offend you, then take Calgary.

Wednesday May 12, 2021

Outcome: +16.66

Team(s) Vs. Time (ET) Bet Type Odds Amount Status Result Total
Edmonton @Montreal 5:00pm PL +175 5 Locked L (4-3) -5
Vegas @San Jose 9:00pm PL +114 19  Locked W (6-0) +21.66

Recap: And just like that, we are back on top and in the lead against the book this week. The Vegas bet was almost too obvious. Edmonton won, but not by the 1.5 goals that we needed them to win by. That was supposed to be the cherry on top bet but instead, we got no cherry — but the hot fudge and nuts were nice anyway.

Tuesday May 11, 2021

Outcome: -17.50

Team(s) Vs. Time (ET) Bet Type Odds Amount Status Result Total
Boston @Washington 7:00pm ML -104 17.50 Locked L (1-2) -17.50

Recap: Swayman did his job in net, as expected, he’s been the Bruins’ better #2. It was the B’s offense that let us down in this one.

Monday May 10, 2021

Outcome: +6.75

Team(s) Vs. Time (ET) Bet Type Odds Amount Status Result Total
NY Islanders
@Boston 7:00pm U 5.5 7.50 Locked W (2-3) +6.75

Update: You would think that with nine games on the slate tonight, there would be a lot more to choose from than this – but here we are. Yesterday there were just two games in the National Hockey League being played and we had action on both of them. Go figure. Sometimes the bets are there and sometimes they just aren’t. Forcing a bet just to bet is never, ever, a good thing. Take what you are given — nothing more — it will help your odds of becoming a successful bettor.

Recap: We’ll take our win and start the week off in the plus category holding some of the houses money instead. The Islanders and the Bruins were knotted at 2-2 after three periods which made us winners no matter what happened from that point on.

Used for reference. We treat all bets each day as an overall block so it is important to maintain the ratios between the bets when adjusting to your personal limits.

Status

Pending We are waiting for information, usually it’s confirmation of who the starting goalie’s will be in the game for both teams. Wagers are created each morning using the expected goalies. If expectations change, we reevaluate the bet before locking it in.
Warning Something we are concerned about has occurred and we are waiting for confirmation. The bet remains a pending bet but it’s leaning more toward a no bet with the latest undesirable developments.
Likely We’re waiting on one or two confirmations to come in but all signs point to this being a good bet.
No Bet Something has changed that has caused us to no longer consider this bet.
PPD The game has been postponed.
Locked Place the bet.

Total

Calculated using a 10% “vig” for straight bets and over/under bets. The vig is included in the odds for a ML (Money Line), PL (Puck Line) and Parlay bets.
