It was a winning night with our lone NHL tip as the Arizona Coyotes beat the Carolina Hurricanes.

I played it safe with just Coyotes including overtime/shootout and that worked out. Raanta had to step up big with 48 saves as the Coyotes blew a 3 goal lead but were able to come back and win it on OT.

And while it wasn’t an official tip I backed the Panthers to win yesterday and hopefully some of you got on that. Jets are an odd team at the moment. Like many of the NHL “elite” there’ not a team you can really look at and confidently back at this time.

That makes it fun though I find. Picking a heavy favourite and watching them do as expected isn’t as fun as going with underdogs such as the last few days with the Red Wings, Coyotes and Panthers where you see them pulling off the W. Much more intense games and really makes me feel good pulling out those wins.

It’s Saturday, November 3rd. A lot of generous odds today when it comes to the favourites. Hopefully we’ve picked correctly. Honestly on days with a game like this we can usually rule out at least half the games in our first run through of them. Today we had 11 games with potential picks after that first run through. Going to be a very interesting night in the NHL.

Let’s get to the NHL Betting Tips. With so many plays and hard to narrow it down we’ve went with 0.5u plays for them all. Best to play it safe as at worst it’s a -3.5u night.

Predators vs Bruins Betting Tips:

The Nashville Predators have Pekka Rinne back and he had an excellent performance against the Tampa Bay Lightning. He’s had two solid performances as well earlier in the season and his only struggles have been against the Calgary Flames.

Preds are one of those teams with the depth and overall a very solid team. Going up against the Bruins who of course rely on that top line to carry them.

Can’t underrestimate that line as they are seriously ridiculous. However the Preds top line is excellent too and Arvidsson will hopefully be back. Even if he doesn’t I’ll go with 0.5u on Predators to win incl OT/SO. I’d like to go higher but Halak has had two good games and that could give the Bruins a lot of confidence.

Canada: 1.74 Odds at Bet365.
USA: -140 Odds at 5Dimes.
Everyone Else: 1.74 Odds at Bet365.

Wild vs Blues Betting Tips:

Honestly this is a pure betting system play. I don’t normally rely on my betting system for over/unders but this one it really thinks will be high scoring. The way both teams have been playing at the moment I’m good with backing that. Wild offense is rolling and their power play unit had an excellent outing against Edmonton.

0.5u on Over 5.5 Goals

Canada: 1.91 Odds at Pinnacle Sports.
USA: -120 Odds at GT Bets.
Everyone Else: 1.91 Odds at Pinnacle Sports.

Oilers vs Red Wings Betting Tips:

Honestly I always hate betting the Edmonton Oilers. They’re such a hard team to trust and going up against a confident Red Wings team. But I like to think that means the Oilers won’t underrestimate them. They had an excellent win over the Blackhawks 2 days ago and against the Minnesota Wild it was their penalty kill unit that hurt them.

Red Wings to their credit have got a couple of nice wins but I do believe despite their issues, Oilers are a much better team. Koskinen is in net and is confident and that’s a good thing.

0.5u on Oilers to win incl OT/SO

Canada: 1.72 Odds at Pinnacle Sports.
USA: -139 Odds at 5Dimes.
Everyone Else: 1.72 Odds at Pinnacle Sports.

(Odds correct as of 2018/11/03 1:54:48 PM EST but are subject to change.)

Flames vs Blackhawks Betting Tips:

Honestly if we went with pre-season expectations for these teams Flames wouldn’t be a play at all. However both teams come into this with mixed results and we like the odds on the Flames.

They’re starting to gain confidence. They’ve had some real hard battles since that Penguins game and have been fighting well. They have their issues but the Blackhawks really are not a good team.

We like the Flames to pick up another win here and think the price is nice enough for it.

Flames to win incl OT/SO: 0.5u

Canada: 1.77 Odds at Sports Interaction.
USA: -130 Odds at 5Dimes.
Everyone Else: 1.76 Odds at Bet365.

(Odds correct as of 2018/11/03 1:54:48 PM EST but are subject to change.)

Lightning vs Canadiens Betting Tips:

Habs are doing excellent at the moment but that’s due more to their offense and their clinical finishing than anything else. Tampa are a Top 10 ranked offense missing Hedman.

Tampa struggled against Rinne but I can’t see them having the same issues against Price who comes into this one after an .857 and .871 save percentage.

Over 6 Goals incl OT/SO: 0.5u

Canada: 2.00 Odds at Bet365.
USA: +100 Odds at GT Bets.
Everyone Else: 2.00 Odds at Bet365.

(Odds correct as of 2018/11/03 1:54:48 PM EST but are subject to change.)

Devils vs Islanders Betting Tips:

I was tempted to go with the Islanders here to win. Defensively and goaltending wise they’re starting to impress. However it doesn’t seem like any team can keep out the New Jersey Devils who have scored at least 3 goals in every game except the Flyers game this season.

So they have the ability to score. They’re going up against an Islanders team who have shown a lot of fight the last couple of games and look like they’re always up for a battle. I like that.

I’m going to go with 0.5u on Over 6 Goals incl OT/SO for this one.

Canada: 1.95 Odds at Pinnacle Sports.
USA: -110 Odds at GT Bets.
Everyone Else: 1.95 Odds at Pinnacle Sports.

(Odds correct as of 2018/11/03 1:54:48 PM EST but are subject to change.)

Jackerts vs Kings Betting Tips:

The Kings are at home but they haven’t really did too well here with three blowout losses in their last three games here. Their defense seriously needs to step it up because Jack Campbell needs some help. I’m just hoping that doesn’t happen here.

Initially I had this one penciled in as an over earlier in the week but after seeing the Jackets vs Sharks game the other night, I’m going with the Jackets.

The main reason is Sergei Bobrovsky. He has had an absolutely brutal start to the season with some horrific games however he seems to be stepping things up. He looked excellent against the Sharks and I like to think his confidence is growing again after that one.

Jackets also have a lot of talent throughout the team and Anthony Duclair comes in confident as well.

Even if Bobrovsky isn’t at his best, the Jackets still have what it takes to beat the Kings. In saying that, a large chunk of this play is based on Bobrovsky so we’ll go with 0.5u on Jackets to win incl OT/SO if Bob plays.

Canada: 1.85 Odds at Pinnacle Sports.
USA: -120 Odds at GT Bets.
Everyone Else: 1.85 Odds at Pinnacle Sports.

OHL / WHL / AHL / KHL / Czech Extraliga Betting Tips:

(All below systems are based mainly on mathematics and statistics with very little human input and are deemed experimental. )

AHL Betting Tips (5-2, +1.48u): Like I said the other day I don’t do over/unders with this model but system really likes the goals today in Ontario Reign vs San Diego Gulls. Thinks it should hit at least 8. I’d say Over 7 in regulation time at 2.85 odds (and if it hits exactly 7 its a push) is a decent play. Not an official tip.

Where To Bet the Non-NHL Leagues:

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