On a quiet Sunday in the NFL season, with just five games on the schedule, finding value can be a challenge. But with a long 82-game season ahead, there are plenty of ways to bet on NHL action throughout the year. Backup goalies coming into play, injuries, and teams due for positive or negative swings can impact the best selections each night.
Let’s dive into the best bets for tonight, with lines subject to change throughout the day.
In the game between the Chicago Blackhawks and the Florida Panthers, Carter Verhaeghe is projected as the top player for shots on goal. With an average of 3.4 shots per contest and a favorable matchup against the Blackhawks, the implied odds at +125 for him to have an above-average game are too low.
For the game between the Columbus Blue Jackets and the New York Rangers, the over 6.5 total goals is an enticing bet. Despite strong performances from both goaltenders this season, a large sample size dating back to last year suggests that the over is likely to cash 58.2% of the time in this game.
In the matchup between the Anaheim Ducks and the San Jose Sharks, Frank Vatrano represents a strong candidate for an anytime goal. With a healthy average of 18:18 TOI and a favorable matchup against the Sharks, the +155 odds make for a compelling bet.
