The new NHL season is almost upon us! We’re just a couple of weeks away – and we are itching to be back and providing you with daily winning tips for a 4th successive year!

We’ll have a lot of articles leading up to the season covering the futures – but for now we thought we would do some NHL betting tips on the pre-season games.

Now some disclaimers here – pre-season is a crap shoot. I mean look – the Leafs won, do I need to say anything else? It’s a lot less about winning the game and more about getting the kids some ice time, trying out some guys and different lines etc.

But man – we are just itching to bet some hockey.

You can bet on the NHL pre-season games at Sports Interaction. They are our #1 recommended online sportsbook for Canadians – and well, everyone else.

They don’t accept Americans. If you are American, bet the NHL pre-season at Bovada.

These tips will not count as part of our record. They’re here to keep us entertained throughout the pre-season as we can only watch so much pre-season hockey without gambling – after the first games we’re like “Yep, let’s bet on these”.

So don’t go into this thinking “YES TIME TO MAKE A ZILLION DOLLARS”. It’s quite possible we go 4-0 and it’s just as possible we go 0-4. We’re okay with that.

Leafs vs Canadiens

Leafs coming off of winning both of their games against the Sens yesterday. 4-3 in OT and 4-1. This could be the only winning streak the Leafs have in 2015-2016. Sure it’s only the preseason but anytime the Leafs and Sens play its meaningful. This is the Habs first preseason game so they will be looking to get off to a good start.

Red Wings vs Blackhawks

First game for both of these teams. The Hawks won the Cup so they have had a shorter offseason than any team except the Lightning. I’m leaning towards the Hawks in this one. They need to get people talking about their on ice activities instead of the Patrick Kane situation.

Capitals vs Bruins

Both teams made some huge moves in the offseason and seem to be headed in opposite directions. The Bruins moved Lucic and Hamilton and had 3 picks in the first round of the draft. The Caps added Oshie and Williams to only strengthen their already potent offense.

Stars vs Panthers

Dallas could be a beast this year. They were already a strong offensive team but they jumped all over the Hawks and their cap issues. They snagged Pat Sharp and Johnny Oduya. Both will help the team immediately and bring some valuable experience to the young team. The have one of the best top 6 in the NHL now with Seguin, Benn, Sharp, Spezza, Hemsky and a healthy Nichushkin. Also brought in another former Hawk, Antti Niemi, to ease the workload of Kari Lehtonen.

God it’s good to be back. We’ve missed this!

The only thing in preseason that matters is what roster each team brings into the match so the best is to wait until that is known. I’m currently 4-0 betting according to the lineup, a little bit lucky though with Canucks winning in SO last night but still.


Penguins – clear advantage over Canes’ roster (Kessel, Crosby, Malkin, Letang, Maatta, Fleury etc.)

Bolts – advantage over Preds’ experimental roster (TB will have more veterans, including Stamkos)

Jets – clear advantage over Wild’s roster (Jets have many core players while Wild’s core players played last night so they will get off tonight)

Flyers – slight advantage over Rangers’ roster

Blackhawks – clear advantage over experimental Wings’ roster (Hossa, Kane, Toews and many other NHL players vs Detroit’s younglings…)

Projected Kings’ roster is also strong – 2 NHL goalies + first two offensive and defensive lines complete. If that will be the case, no matter what Coyotes might bring, LA should win. Waiting on official rosters.
