NHL Betting Trends
I don’t rely on trends. Trends are dangerous and they only tell us what happened in the past not what can happen in the future. Most trends are misinterpreted and will harm most bettors. Hockey “experts” use trends because they are attractive and easy to understand, but they don’t have any predictive power.
Guessing and Intuition Plays
NHL betting market is considered as a liquid market and smart betting market. When it comes to sports betting, this is not a competition against bookmakers, but much more against other bettors. Statistical analysis and deep research of NHL games is required
Avoid bad betting odds
When it comes to betting, bookmakers will always have some edge. This is their commission, which we call the juice, margins or vig. Sports bettors will have to beat that margin and the bigger the margin the lower your chances to win. This is why it is important to select bookmakers with low margins.
With parlays, you decrease your chances, because the bookmakers’ edge is bigger with more teams on your bet slip. Always bet only single bets.
