I figure I'd start a thread on NHL betting so as not to sully the other threads. I find a bettable hockey game about once every two weeks or so. Tonight happens to be one of those nights for me so I thought I'd start a thread for hockey bettors. The confluence of events that I always look for when making an NHL bet is occurring today with Buffalo at Chicago. Those being: 1. Strong home team vs weak road team (according to the power rankings) 2. Home team on a win streak, road team on a losing streak. 3. Home team with good home record vs weak team with weak road record 4. Road team a lot of injuries vs home team with minimal to no injuries 5. Home team with a better goaltender vs road team with a weaker goaltender. 6. Home team with at least one day of rest. They're all lining up nicely tonight. I don't follow the Blackhawks much so I'm not going to go crazy betting this game but it looks pretty good for a bet. The moneyline is expensive, so I'll probably place a ML and a PL bet and hope for the best. I usually only consider a PL if the juice is over 200 but I haven't decided yet. Good luck!
