We provide insight into each game of all 32 teams’ seasons. This includes sides, puck lines, and totals based on trends, injuries, schedule, value, and more. There’s a lot of hockey being played on each and every night which is why our free expert NHL picks are so valuable.

NHL Predictions Against the Spread

Similar to MLB Picks against the spread, the NHL Picks against the spread remain at a set puck line of +/- 1.5 depending on if you’re looking at the favorite or the underdog, and instead of the line moving, the odds do. It is a popular way to bet on NHL games as they can offer more value to a strong favorite you like or give you that edge is what we or you foresee as being a close-fought game. Our NHL Predictions against the spread will always come with full match analysis and reasoning, as well as a star to indicate our experts’ confidence in the prediction. Check out our NHL Predictions against the spread right here on our NHL Predictions page all season long. 

Free NHL Over / Under Predictions 

Our Free NHL Over/Under Predictions, sometimes referred to as NHLTotals Predictions are an exciting way to wager on a game where you don’t like either side or want to remain neutral. The NHL over/under predictions are on the total match goals by both teams combined. Depending on the matchup the line will be set in the region of over/under 5.5 or 6.5 goals, but they can be higher. All of our NHL over/under predictions come fully researched and with a full breakdown of why our experts like a particular side of the line. Within this analysis, we’ll include the key stats, team news, player news, and historical matchup information. Check out all of today’s NHL over/under Predictions right here on our NHL Predictions page.
