Latest NHL Predictions

LA Dodgers MoneyLine
at Atlanta Braves
Reason for tip

The Dodgers have a significant starting pitching advantage in this contest. They are also much better equipped to do damage at the plate in this one, due to their high-contact rate and depth throughout the lineup. The main concern for bettors backing Los Angeles is that their offense has been horribly inconsistent this postseason. If there is one pitcher that the Dodgers want on the mound in an elimination game, it is Scherzer. Bettors should put their faith in Scherzer and the Dodgers to force a Game 7.

Vancouver Canucks Money Line
at Seattle Kraken
Reason for tip

While this will be Seattle’s first home game, they have lost three straight, and will face their neighbours to the north who likely have some established fanbase in Seattle. Look for the Canucks to spoil the part in Seattle tonight.

Los Angeles Clippers -4.0 Point Spread
vs Memphis Grizzlies
Reason for tip

The Clippers came up short in their first game of the season, losing by 2 at Golden State. That has created a buying opportunity for them in this spot. Memphis was hot in their home opener. Things will be tougher on the road.

Minnesota Wild -1.5 Puck Line
vs Anaheim Ducks
Reason for tip

While the Wild managed to only beat the Ducks by one goal when these two team met 8 days ago, that was mostly due to a stellar performance from Anthony Stolarz making 43 saves. Don’t expect a similar performance in this content. Look for the Wild to win this one by a few goals at home.

Carolina Hurricanes Money Line
at Columbus Blue Jackets
Reason for tip

The Hurricanes are a better team offensively. Both teams are pretty bad defensively, but the difference between the Hurricanes and Jackets in terms of offense is too much to ignore.

Colorado Avalanche Money Line
at Tampa Bay Lightning
Reason for tip

Both teams are off to bad starts, but there is more urgency for Colorado with a tough stretch of games coming up. MacKinnon has 2 points in 2 games, but is -7 with 3 shots and no goals. He is going to be buzzing and looking to turn around this team’s poor start.

Florida Panthers Money Line
at Philadelphia Flyers
Reason for tip

The Panthers are the hottest team and probably the best. They have won against some of the best teams and are scoring numerous goals against those talented teams. Look for the Panthers to continue their winning ways and handle the Flyers.

Winnipeg Jets MoneyLine
vs Nashville Predators
Reason for tip

The Predators look to find their first win on the road of the season while the Jets look to build off a dominating performance against the Ducks in their last time out on the ice. Both of these defenses are struggling however, the Jets offense looks to have finally found a groove. Take the Jets money line with confidence in this one.

Toronto Maple Leafs Money Line
at Pittsburgh Penguins
Reason for tip

With Jeff Carter and Tristan Jarry out for this game a thin Penguins roster gets thinner. They will be in tough trying to slow down Auston Matthews and John Tavares in this one. The Leafs should be able to win this game in Pittsburgh.

St. Louis Blues MoneyLine
vs Los Angeles Kings
Reason for tip

The Kings begin the year struggling on offense while the Blues seem to have everything going in their favor. Coming off a difficult overtime loss to the Stars, the Kings have to bounce back quickly if they want to have a chance to beat the Blues. Even so, it might not be enough. The Blues have the better offense, defense, and goaltending. Back the Blues in what should be a blowout.

Buffalo Sabers +1.5 Puck Line
at New Jersey Devils
Reason for tip

Buffalo is off to a good, likely unsustainable start. But for now, they’re playing good hockey. Their D-men are 1st-6th on the team in ice time per game and their goaltending has been solid. Their emphasis on defense should make it tougher for a Devils team that doesn’t have Jack Hughes to run away with the game.

Detroit Red Wings +1.5 Puck Line
at Montreal Canadiens
Reason for tip

The Canadiens are 0-5-0, and they cannot get anything going offensively.  They have scored just 4 total goals through 5 games, and only the Golden Knights have a lower power play percentage.  Through 2 games, Detroit goaltender Thomas Greiss is boasting an impressive .969 save percentage.  He seems to be in a good spot to keep things going against a Canadiens team that has yet to show much fight.  Overall, it’s tough to back Montreal at this price.  Take Detroit on the puck line +1.5.

NHL Predictions FAQs

When do you post your NHL betting tips?

We post our NHL tips every day before 6pm. This means we’re in early enough to get the best value from the bookmakers, as well as giving you enough time to view our tips before the matches commence.

All our NHL picks are fully researched and completely free but we can’t guarantee winners. Please gamble responsibly and visit our gambling guidelines for more information (18+).

How to bet on NHL

You’ll first need some funds in an account with a bookmaker, and the best way to do this is to sign up to a bookmaker offering free bets. You can compare the best offers from all the top bookmakers on our free bets page.

In terms of betting on the game itself, you’ll want to be informed. Our NHL picks are selected by industry experts, following an exhaustive analysis of statistics, form and external factors. You can also supplement these tips with some of your own knowledge, in which case there a few factors you can consider. 

First, how good is each team’s goaltender? This is the most important position on the pitch, and so can have a huge impact on the outcome of a match – or at least how many goals a certain team will concede. 

Looking at form, specifically head-to-head matchups, is also recommended. In terms of looking at statistics, key figures include a team’s home record and how regularly they score and concede goals.

But, of course, our tips take all this and more into account!

Who are the best NHL teams?

NHL betting terms explained

Money Line – This is essentially just an American term for ‘to win’. If you are backing a team on the money line then they must win for your bet to come in.

Puck Line – This works the same as handicaps in football betting. If you were to bet LA Kings -1.5 @ Boston Bruins +1.5, the Bruins must win the game outright or lose by no more than 1.5 goals for your bet to come in. If the LA Kings win, they must do so by 1.5 runs or more for your bet to win. If the spread is bet at a whole number and your team wins/loses by that exact amount, then your bet will be refunded.

Alternative Puck Line – This is the same as the standard puck line but altered to a different number of goals. Although not many bookies offer this market, some big ones like bet365 do. Since the number of goals is customisable, we often use alternative puck lines in our accumulators.

Game Totals – This is simply betting on the total number of goals scored in a game. Betting on LA Kings @ Boston Bruins – Over/Under 5.5 goals means you’d need 6 goals or more to win the Overs and 5 goals or less to win the Unders. If you bet on a whole number and your team ends up winning/losing by exactly that amount then your bet will be refunded.

Alternative Game Totals – This is the same as standard game totals but just a different number of goals.

Parlay – This is an American term for accumulators.
