This Week's Best NHL Bets
By Covers.com

Every week, we update you on who's hot, who's not and situational betting spots in the National Hockey League.

For the week of Nov. 25 - Dec. 1.

Hot team

Chicago Blackhawks (4-0 SU)


Who else could be here? The Hawks are currently enjoying a six-game winning streak overall (despite playing seven straight on the road) and were 4-0 in the past week. Patrick Kane has returned to his jaw-droppingly-good self. His 12-game point streak was snapped Friday, but he notched a goal and one assist in Saturday's win over the Phoenix Coyotes. They return to home ice Tuesday as they host the Dallas Stars.

Cold team

Toronto Maple Leafs (0-4 SU)


Toronto started the season as good as anyone and Leaf Nation was in a flurry of excitement. After a loss to the Montreal Canadiens on Hockey Night in Canada capped off an 0-4 week, that hot start seems like a distant memory. You'd be hard pressed to find a better 1-2 punch than Phil Kessel and James van Riemsdyk, but it's the goaltending that has let the Leafs down. James Reimer and Jonathan Bernier rotated starts this week, but allowed nine goals each this week.

Best Over play

Anaheim Ducks (3-0 O/U)


The Ducks may have dropped two of their three games this week, but they cashed in for Over bettors. Goalie Jonas Hiller gave up eight goals in his two starts this week and has lost four of this last six starts overall. Dustin Penner, Ryan Getzlaf and Corey Perry continue to be one of the hottest lines in the NHL, thus making the Ducks a solid Over candidate from an offensive standpoint night in, night out. They have a tough week upcoming, hosting the L.A. Kings Tuesday, before hitting the road to face the 'Hawks and St. Louis Blues.

Best Under play

New York Islanders (0-3 O/U)


Things are not good for the Isles. Many thought the Islanders would parlay an impressive playoff series against the Pittsburgh Penguins into a decent 2013-14 season. Not so. New York has dropped six-straight hockey games and are having troubles scoring despite boasting one of the more underrated players in the league, in John Tavares. The team was blanked by the Detroit Red Wings midweek and mustered just four goals in their three games. A feeble power play (16.3 percent) doesn't help matters either. Free Tavares!

Surveying the schedule

The hype surrounding the Colorado Avalanche may have tapered off a bit in recent weeks, but they still boast one of the best road records in the league at 9-2-0. The Avs, winners of back-to-back games, hit the road to Canada with games at the Edmonton Oilers, Calgary Flames and Vancouver Canucks.
