How Do I Get NHL Picks For Today?
NHL betting is most similar to that of the MLB. The most popular NHL wagering is done via the moneyline (ML) where a bettor simply picks a winner or loser of the game finding value in the price. Just like an MLB pitcher, NHL game lines are determined largely in part by the goaltender matchup. You’re going to pay a premium price (-180 or more) for putting in an NHL free pick on a solid goaltender – but it’s one position that can literally win or lose the bet for you. Fatigue is also a factor in finding the best NHL free bets as Team A may be playing their first game in a week while Team B is in their 3rd contest in 5 nights.
We try and post our NHL predictions for today at least 24 hours in advance. However, due to the huge volume of games this can sometimes be impossible if teams are playing back-to-back games. We want to get our picks up as close as possible to the opening lines so we can get on the early line value.
NHL Predictions For Today’s Games
We provide insight into each game of all 31 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 Picks Against the Spread
NHL betting has a 1.5 goal spread known as the puck line (PL). Again just like baseball betting has the run line (-1.5). NHL wagers are exciting until the very last second of the game as teams often pull their goaltender near the end to get an extra skater on the ice. All of a sudden an empty net goal pushes your NHL free pick to victory – or defeat. Betting on the puck line provides better payout odds and NHL picks against the spread can also be pushed to higher numbers such as -2.5 or 3.5 goals for an even better return on investment.
NHL Over / Under Free Picks
Most games are listed right around 5.5 goals in the NHL. The total number of goals is the total of combined goals by both teams and you can either selech over or under the total. If the line is 5.5 and you wish to wager on the over then the total combined goals for the game must be 6 or more for you to cash your ticket.
NHL over/under betting is an interesting wager. A huge factor to take into consideration is the goaltender as they have a huge part to play influencing the number of goals in the game. A goaltenders goals against average (GAA) is a key stat to measure the effectiveness of a goaltender.
Another interesting factor to take into consideration is the empty net play of teams near the end of the game.

If you’re tired of betting on the same NHL markets day in, day out then don’t worry. We have you covered with
NHL teasers aren’t really available because the puck line is already relatively low at -1.5 goals. If you were to combine multiple teams in a wager and get, say 4 goals added to your side the price wouldn’t be worth the return.
NHL parlays are a very popular option on both moneyline and puck line plays. The ‘grand salami’ is available to wager, where you bet on all teams at once – whether they all combine to score ‘over’ or ‘under’ a certain amount of goals.
NHL player props are a fun bet to make on NHL games. You can bet on a player to score a goal, player to score a point, have an assist, first and last goalscorer. For goalie props you can bet on over/under saves.
NHL live betting is becoming very popular with the rise of online sportsbooks. You can wager on each period lines and watch the action happen live.
