Puck Line, VGS Golden Knights @ ANA Ducks

Reasoning

The Vegas Golden Knights are healthy and playing great hockey as they prepare for what they hope will be a long playoff run. On Friday night they will head to Anaheim to play the Ducks, which will be their sixth game head to head this season and the Knights have won four of the five so far. Vegas is 13-7 on the road and has won five of their last six games with four of those wins being by more than one goal. This offense is on fire as they have averaged 4.17 goals for over those six games. They continue to be a fast pace team that is not afraid to take chances to make plays which has allowed them an average of 37.2 shots per game over their last six. Vegas continues to use both starting goalies giving each of them a game and then a day off. On Friday it will be Robin Lehner’s turn in net, as he looks to improve on his 9-1-2 record with a .914 save percentage. As a team they have allowed an average of two goals against in their last six games and they can defiantly keep the Ducks to that number.

Anaheim has lost five of their last eight games and is 5-14-4 on home ice this season. In their last eight games they have scored an average of 2.5 goals for and have allowed an average of 36.4 shots against. Ryan Getzlaf is battling an injury to his back and will be a game time decision and second leading scorer Rickard Rakell has one point in his last five games. Four of the Ducks last five losses have been by more than one goal and the Knights will add to that stat on Friday. Take the Knights -1.5.

Where To Wager On Your NHL Best Bets

NHL games, as with all major US sports will have a multitude of markets available for every game offered by all leading online sportsbooks.

Alongside the importance of being selective in your wagering, and managing your bankroll, right up there with the most important factors in successful NHL bets are the odds and betting lines.

NHL is a major US sport and as such sees a great deal of betting turnover with online sportsbooks. As a result, sportsbooks are keen to out-compete one another, and the way they do this is by trying to offer the best odds, spreads, or betting offers.

NHL picks and odds are most similarly compared to MLB picks and odds in that the puck line is set at +/- 1.5, as the run line is in baseball, and it’s the odds that change rather than the lines.

With this, it’s vital to shop the odds for your NHL best bets, as you can see a huge difference in potential payout from placing a wager at one sportsbook as opposed to another. 

All of our NHL picks are accompanied by the best available odds and which online sportsbooks are offering them, but these odds are dynamic and can change.

If you don’t yet have an account with one of the sportsbooks listed as having the best odds, why not check out our bonuses page to see the latest promo codes available and get off to a flyer with a great sign up bonus.
