This Week's Best NHL Bets

This Week's Best NHL Bets

This Week's Best NHL Bets

For the week of Oct. 14-20

Hot team

Anaheim Ducks (3-0 SU)

Following Sunday night's 6-3 win over the Dallas Stars, the red-hot Anaheim Ducks have now won seven-straight hockey games and posted three victories over the course of the week. The Ducks embark on a tough eight-game road trip with stops this week at Toronto, Montreal, Ottawa and Columbus. If they come out on top, we'll find out if the Bruce Boudreau's Ducks are for real.

Cold team

Philadelphia Flyers (0-2 SU)

Philly is in a bad spot. Plain and simple. They handed Peter Laviolette his walking papers on Oct. 7 due to a poor start and promptly won Craig Berube's first game as boss on Oct. 8. Since then, the Flyers have dropped four-straight games. Just the two losses for the dismal Flyers this past week, and the Broad Street Bullies are off until Thursday when they host the equally poor New York Rangers and then have an away game at the New York Islanders Saturday.

Best Over play

San Jose Sharks (3-0 Over/Under)

Not only are the Sharks one of the hottest teams in the league, but they have been lighting the lamp at a frenetic pace. The Sharks lead the NHL with 4.9 goals per game and posted two games where they scored six goals this past week, and of course the nine-goal outburst versus the Rangers back on Oct. 8. The Sharks upped their O/U record to 4-3-1 on the season after going 3-0 this past week. San Jose heads out to the east coast for a busy week which includes games at Detroit, Boston, Montreal and Ottawa.

Best Under play

Chicago Blackhawks (0-3 Over/Under)

The defending Stanley Cup champions have played eight games thus far and five of them have finished 3-2. They have a record of 1-7 O/U and played under the total in all three matchups this past week. The Hawks are fifth in the league in goals against (2.1) and score a middle-of-the-pack 2.8 goals per game. The Hawks head to Sunshine State for tilts at Florida and Tampa Bay before closing the week at home against the Minnesota Wild Saturday night.

Surveying the schedule:

The Vancouver Canucks are in the midst of an extended road trip out east. They started the seven-game tour with a 2-1 SU record through the first three games with the fourth in Columbus Sunday night. They'll conclude the road tour at the New York Islanders, New Jersey Devils and in St. Louis Friday.

The Colorado Avalanche have had an amazing start to the season and are an excellent 4-1-0 against Eastern Conference foes. Their success against the other conference will once again be put to the test as the Avs are in Pittsburgh Monday and host the Carolina Hurricanes Thursday.

Re: This Week's Best NHL Bets

NHL Betting: Road favorites Continue To Cash In

NHL road favorites continue to be an overwhelming winner in the early stages of the season, cashing in at a 73 percent clip.

Any $100 bettor would be up $1,154.93 if they had wagered on the road fave in each of these spots.

Road favorites are 27-10 thus far with the Buffalo Sabres positioned as prime fade material in such situations at 0-6-1.

Saturday's NHL schedule provides a few opportunities to capitalize on this trend with the San Jose Sharks (-124) visiting the Montreal Canadiens, the St. Louis Blues (-120) traveling to Music City to face the Nashville Predators, and the Washington Capitals (-126) in Alberta to take on the Calgary Flames.
