Last time out I wrote an article covering the Best Odds for each NHL Series Winner.

Today I thought I would cover the best odds for the first batch of games.

I’ll go through the best odds for each team to win, as well as cover the over/under odds and what the best line and odds are for that.

I’ll also break it down by country.

The NHL season returns on Saturday, August 1st with 5 games on the board.

Let’s have a quick look at the games available.

We have:

  • New York Rangers vs Carolina Hurricanes
  • Chicago Blackhawks vs Edmonton OIlers
  • Florida Panthers vs New York Islanders
  • Montreal Canadiens vs Pittsburgh Penguins
  • Winnipeg Jets vs Calgary Flames

Americans: Best Odds For August 1st, 2020 Games

I should add a note that this is using 6 different sportsbooks however two sportsbooks stood out for the best game odds.

Rangers Win: +115 at 5Dimes..
Hurricanes Win: -125 at BetOnline.
Over 6 Goals: +109 at BetOnline.
Under 6 Goals: -115 at 5Dimes.

Blackhawks Win: +135 at 5Dimes.
Oilers Win: -145 at BetOnline.
Over 6 Goals: -108 at 5Dimes.
Under 6 Goals: +102 at BetOnline.

Panthers Win: +100 at BetOnline.
Islanders Win: -108 at 5Dimes.
Over 5.5 Goals: -108 at BetOnline.
Under 5.5 Goals: -102 at BetOnline.

Canadiens Win: +145 at 5Dimes.
Penguins Win: -155 at 5Dimes.
Over 5.5 Goals: +105 at 5Dimes.
Under 5.5 Goals: -115 at 5Dimes.

Note: Many sportsbooks offer the Habs/Penguins line at over 6 for similar odds so that is a great line.

Jets Win: +104 at 5Dimes.
Flames Win: -115 at BetOnline.
Over 5.5 Goals: -120 at 5Dimes.
Under 5.5 Goals: +110 at 5Dimes.

Note for Americans: Based on these game lines, it is strongly advised that you have accounts at both 5Dimes and BetOnline if you want the best NHL odds throughout the playoffs.
