Reasoning

The Canucks will host the Senators on Monday, which will be the first of a three-game series between the two clubs. Fresh off a very disappointing series vs. the Canadiens, the Canucks will hope that this one goes better than the last. Tensions are high in Vancouver after their fans had many reasons to be optimistic about this season given their strong play in the playoffs last summer. Luckily for the Canucks, they were able to get in their first practice in a week while having an off day from games on Sunday.

Vancouver is even more fortunate in that that it will be the rebuilding Senators coming to town on Monday. Ottawa has lost four straight games since its season-opening win over Toronto. While the future is starting to look bright in Ottawa, the present situation is still very much a work in process. Ottawa’s defense ranked second-to-last in the league last year and appears to be a large concern once again this season. The Senators allowed four goals or more in all three games against the Jets, as well as blowing a two-goal lead on two separate occasions in the opener of that series. With the Canucks desperate for a win, expect to see a determined group–led by captain Bo Horvat–take full advantage of the Senators deficiencies. Look for Horvat to add to his team-leading eight points and snap this mini losing streak.

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.
