Well it’s finally here – the NHL season is back and kicking as of tonight, Saturday January 18th, 2013.
And what better way to kick it off than sitting back on the couch, relaxing, having a few beers and enjoying some chicken wings?
How about betting on it too! I am pumped to start betting and making money on the NHL this season with my NHL Betting Tips.
When it comes to betting – be sure to keep an eye on the NHL Betting Odds page. I will list the best odds at a particular sportsbook down below, however that may change and it’s good to keep updated on the odds so you get the best bang for your buck.
Penguins vs Flyers: First Goal Before 9.5 Minutes:
Two of the best offenses take to the ice in one of the highlight games today, with the Pittsburgh Penguin taking on the Philadelphia Flyers. This is expected to be a very high scoring game, with at least 7 goals being predicted according to the Vegas odds.
Therefore, the best bet to take is a goal in the first 9 minutes and 30 seconds. After the lockout and long layoff both teams will be rusty and sloppy – however this affects goalies and defense a lot more than it does the offense. You can currently get generous 5/7 odds available on this at Bet365.
Rangers vs Bruins: New York Rangers To Win
The Boston Bruins go into their home game against the Rangers as slight favourites. The Vegas odds clearly think home advantage is going to dictate a Bruins win here. Plus Boston has a big betting market, so it’s no surprise that the Bruins are slight favourites.
However this is a game ripe for a New York Rangers win. Rangers were poor in the playoffs but they had a fantastic regular season defeating Boston 3 times, and twice in Boston. Rangers have one of the best offenses and home advantage is not going to be enough to stop the Bruins here. You can currently get +125 odds on the Rangers to win over at 5Dimes.
Rangers vs Bruins: New York Rangers To Score First
We’re going to be riding the Rangers vs Bruins again here, with two New York Rangers vs Boston Bruins Betting Tips. One great bet available is betting on a team to score first, and the odds for this are usually very fair. If you know how a team is going to dictate the tempo and what their offense is like, then you can usually get a good return on this bet.
And that’s what we’re doing with the New York Rangers. Rangers are 5/6 odds to score first against the Bruins – this bet is only available at Bet365. Last season, the New York Rangers scored first in ALL FOUR games that they played against the Boston Bruins, and their offense is even stronger this season. This bet is easy money and I recommend jumping on it before the odds change.
