It was a 2-0 night with our consensus picks in what was a wild night of hockey.

We had the Price-less Habs to defeat the Sabres and they managed to do that with relative ease, winning 4-1. we also had the Tampa Bay Lightning to beat the Detroit Red Wings. That one was NOT by relative ease – but holy crap what a game that was.

It was another night of some very high scoring games and some really good ones too. No big upsets although it was interesting to see the performance of the Bruins offense and cool to see Backes grab a double.

Going to be a very interesting year. We’ll continue to provide our individual opinions on each game for the next week we expect until we feel we’re on the same wavelength and will go back to the usual schedule of alternating days.

Quick note – whenever we provide betting tips, we’re always telling you where the best odds are. There’s a reason for that. To be profitable in hockey betting you really should be betting the best odds. Sometimes the differences are large and sometimes they are small but they really add up.

Look at it this way – if I said to you “I’ll give you $100 a day if you pick my left hand, or $105 a day if you pick my right hand” – which hand would you pick? Always makes sense to take $105 a day right? That $5 might not seem like much on a daily basis, but that’s an extra $150 per month you’re making.

It’s the same with the betting odds. It may not seem like much, but it all adds up. On top of that – the majority of these online sportsbooks offer bonuses for depositing, then reload bonuses. Hell some just give you free cash as a reward. So you can take advantage of all that and really add to your bankroll.

Here are the online sportsbooks we currenly bet at ourselves most frequently, and also recommend – we’ve also organized them based on where we would recommend you sign up at first(in terms of bonuses) – so if you want to build your bankroll via bonuses this is the best way to do it:

Americans: Canadians: Everyone Else:
Bovada Sports Interaction Bet365
BetOnline Bodog 888 Sports
Intertops Bet365 Unibet
GT Bets 888 Sports Guts
5Dimes Unibet BetOnline
BetOnline Intertops.
Intertops. Guts
Guts 5Dimes
5Dimes Pinnacle Sports
Pinnacle Sports

Obviously “Everyone Else” will really depend on your country – there are just so many different licenses in Europe that can make it tricky to list them all.

So take some time this weekend and sign up at a couple of sportsbooks. Take advantage of their deposit bonuses and bet at them when they have the best odds. We’ll be sure to post the table again on quiet days NHL wise.

Let’s get on with todays:

Blackhawks vs Predators Betting Tips:

Graeme: The Predators begin their season tonight, while the Blackhawks are hoping to bounce back after that big loss. There is a ton of hype for the Predators this season and I am absolutely pumped to see P.K. in action. I think the sportsbooks have the odds right on this one and I’m staying away.

The Hawks lost their first game 5-2 to the Blues. This is the Preds season opener. This is the first game for PK Subban and he joins a deep Preds blueline with Josi, Ellis and Ekholm. The Preds have high hopes for this season.

I hope I’m wrong here but I like the Preds in this one. The Hawks have 4 rookies in their lineup so it will take some time to get them used to the NHL. Predators Win.

Canada: 1.76 Odds at Pinnacle Sports.
USA: -135 Odds at Bovada.
Everyone Else: 1.76 Odds at Pinnacle Sports.

Oilers vs Flames Betting Tips:

Graeme: It was a massive win for Edmonton on Wednesday but surely they HAD to do that right? Elliott had a brutal game in net for sure. I almost feel like I’m trying to force myself to make a bet for this one – and I’m not going to as it could go either way. As an example of something I look at though – I went through Elliotts stats for the last couple years to see if after a very low save percentage he comes back with a big game. That would have been a deciding factor for me. Unfortunately there’s no consistent stat there.

Scott: Well game one between these teams was awesome a 7-4 Oilers Win. McDavid was amazing scoring twice and adding an assist.

With the venue changing to Calgary I expect them to have a better effort in this one. I’m not sure who comes away with the win though. The Oilers looked strong but the still gave up 4 goals so they’ll need to tighten up. I would love to see another 11 goal game between these were but I’m also not sure on that so I’ll be staying away from this game all together.

Flyers vs Kings Betting Tips:

Graeme: The Flyers also start off their season as they take on the 0-1 LA Kings. The LA Kings are without Quick. Zatkoff is starting which will be interesting. I wasn’t impressed with Zatkoff last season but he looked solid against the Sharks. I’m very conflicted on this one – leaning towards both Flyers to win due to the odds, and the Under 5.5 as it seems like it would be a conservative game. But I’m not going to recommend anything today. Some of the high scoring games lately plus with Zatkoff in put me off the under and I can’t back the Flyers defense just yet till I see them play.

Scott: The Flyers play their first game in this one. The Kings lost 2-1 to the Sharks in their first game but the big news from that game was that their starting goalie Jonathan Quick left the game with a lower body injury. Quick is one of the best goalies in the league so this is a huge blow to the Kings. Also missing from the Kings lineup are Gaborik with a broken foot and Tanner Pearson who is serving his final game of his suspension.

The Kings are a deep team but Zatkoff is a huge step down for them in goal. The Flyers have a good shot at taking this game so I have to back them. Flyers Win..

Canada: 2.20 Odds at Sports Interaction.
USA: +115 Odds at Bovada.
Everyone Else: 2.15 Odds at Bet365.

Mathematical/Experimental Betting Systems:

(All below systems are based mainly on mathematics and statistics with very little human input and are deemed experimental. Previous Records: OHL 28-15 (+17.15u)

So a quick heads-up that I, Graeme, am the one that does these betting systems. I would usually wait for more data(like 2 more weeks) before getting into these – but man, I’m being irresponsible and doing them a bit earlier in the season. I watched the OHL system go 2-0 last night without betting and just can’t wait any longer.

So be wary of these and remember they’re all experimental. As it’s early I’m betting half what I usually bet and even then I feel it’s a bit risky.

OHL Betting Tips: Double of Kitchener Rangers/Sarnia Sting to win. at 2.31 odds. System also likes Over 7 in the Kitcherner and Sudbury games but I’m not betting those or recommending them just yet.

WHL Betting Tips: Everett SilverTips at 1.85.

OHL, WHL & AHL Betting:

Canadians: Bodog.
Americans: Bovada .
Everyone Else: 888 Sports.

    Over 4.5 @ Predators vs. Blackhawks, Flames and Kings.

  • TheRicky

    @BetNHL.ca Love the predictions thanks, would also like to ask if u guys can always update the units won each couple of days, I really like seeing it evolve when sometimes I can’t be there for a couple of days! Thanks

    • BetNHL.ca

      We’ll try our best to 🙂 Usually we get caught up and forget about it for a few days but will aim to do every day if possible.

      • TheRicky

        Okay thanks and since tonight I see none of you wrote a same prediction on the same game meaning there is no bets that are going into the NHL betting stats tonight am I correct? except for the OHL and WHL

        • BetNHL.ca

          Correct. And the OHL/WHL stats will be listed separate from the actual stats. (On the sidebar there under 15/16 OHL we’ll list 16/17 OHL & 16/17 WHL).

          • TheRicky

            Sounds good, thanks for all the hard work <3!!

  • wessiej

    Could you not make the tips that only one of you chooses in the extra black text? Because I thought that if the text was highlighted it would count as a tip that should be played, and now I lost day 2 again while you guys are saying you had a 2-0 night. Not really awesome… I know you said the only one that counts are the ones you both agree on, but if the text is highlighted, it looks te me like an official tip. So thanks again for another losing night…

    • wessiej

      And if I’m right that means you have 0 official tips tonight?

      • BetNHL.ca


        • http://www.mundodeapostas.com/ Eduardo Caldeira

          I wouldnt say zero… because the OHL , WHL u guys have been counting but ya as for NHL … zero, but I will keep in mind the ideas for tonight

          • BetNHL.ca

            True – we were just referencing NHL as we keep the other ones in a separate stat count. Although it should be noted Scott has nothing to do with the OHL/WHL/AHL or 1st period systems. I’m the geek that covers those 🙂 Graeme.

          • http://www.mundodeapostas.com/ Eduardo Caldeira

            I like your WHL bet tbh… looks like a good bet , dont understand why so even odds , the other one is more a trust xD

    • BetNHL.ca

      When one of us makes a tip we’re bolding it – or putting it in the extra black text. And in the write-ups themselves we’re saying things like “I’m avoiding this game” and “No bet”. Don’t blame us when it’s clear what our consensus bets are.

      • wessiej

        Yea I understand that. But most people (not talking for everyone here of course) come here to play because you guys win 4 years in a row and look at the units. Personally I don’t give a shit about ice hockey and I have no intention reading the extra information. All that matters to me is the tips. Don’t get me wrong, it’s amazing what you guys are doing. Spending your time on giving strangers free information and tips, but for me it’s just pure business and I bet I talk for many others too. So I just come here, read the highlighted text and place my money on that.

        I was hoping you guys would just agree on the same, or if not like yesterday and today, just don’t highlight the text if it’s not official for your unit stats.

        • wessiej

          Not trying to sound cocky by the way. Once again, it’s awesome that you guys are doing this for free and for people you don’t even know without even asking something for it.

          But I also hope you understand that I have a busy day too, and don’t care who is injured or whatever. Many people do I guess, but they will read the full text anyway. The highlighted text is all I need and it would be helpfull if only the official tips are highligted.

          • BetNHL.ca

            If you’re betting money on the tips, we’d highly recommend reading the write-ups etc. Not just for the usual reasons(like seeing why we think a team will win, or to help you make your own opinion) but if you vary how much you bet it’d help.

            To make it as simple as possible we tally our stats via flat betting however if there’s one we don’t feel very strong about we’ll be sure to mention that in the tips and suggest a half unit bet, or if we feel very strongly that’s where we’ll say something like “If you’re a multiple unit better it’s worth betting multiples on this” etc.

            I get where you’re coming from for sure – but if risking money I’d advise trying to take that few extra minutes just to read the write-ups.


  • Jacob Jaramillo

    tailing you on some of those OHL picks.
    i like Nashville tonight.

  • Flyers28

    Little late to the party, but glad you guys are back for another season. Always love reading your breakdowns even if I’m not betting that night. Miss reading your F1 tips as well.

    But anyways here’s to a profitable season. GL!

    • BetNHL.ca

      Thanks man. And I’m actually posting the F1 tips over at http://www.SportsBettingTips.org now. Going to close down the F1 site in the future just wasn’t getting any traffic so was a waste writing it up twice. – Graeme.

      • Flyers28

        Oh awesome good to know. Thanks

  • Jean-Philippe Guérin

    Bodog don’t accept people from QC anymore..Do you have any idea where we (people from QC) can bet on OHL, WHL, etc..


    • BetNHL.ca

      Have you tried Unibet? http://www.betnhl.ca/go/unibet.php I went through the brief registration phase and also googled and don’t see anything about them blocking people from QC.

      • Jean-Philippe Guérin

        I created an account on 888sports ! Thanks

        • http://www.mundodeapostas.com/ Eduardo Caldeira

  • lion

    Kings win %100
    Flames win %100

    btw I like Nashvilles but its going to be very hard game for them tonight. People who likes to get risk then you could put small pennies on Blackhawks win.

    Good luck everyone!

  • DawsonArkiri

    Hawks and Oilers win tonight

  • http://www.mundodeapostas.com/ Eduardo Caldeira

    Im taking the -6.0 Goals @ 1.60 oilers – flames in Regulation time HA at 1xbet

    I think its too high but I hope the goalies make a better effort… I think tonight will be more tight as calgary wants revenge and will try to play much more physical game

    call me crazy but Im going to try again the under even if the last one I didnt bet but it was what I thought lol

  • Jacob Jaramillo

    i played a parlay of all your OHL picks tonight. what a winner!!! $20 to win $124 on Bodog!

    • Zach
