  • BookMaker.eu All but two teams will be in action on another jam-packed Saturday of NHL games. There will be at least one game on for at least 12 hours from the time the puck drops in the day’s opener between the Tampa Bay Lightning and the Boston Bruins to the nightcap between the Anaheim Ducks and St. Louis Blues. Every team except Carolina and Nashville has played at least 70 games, yet only one... 

  • BookMaker.eu We are coming off another win with our NHL Parlay Picks on Saturday. The Philadelphia Flyers were able to stay within the puck line against the Carolina Hurricanes and nearly beat the Metropolitan Division leaders in overtime. Meanwhile, the Toronto Maple Leafs blew a late lead against the Ottawa Senators that resulted in extra hockey after Brady Tkachuk notched a power play goal with... 

  • BookMaker.eu We are nearing the end of the NHL regular season. Teams are hitting the 70 games played mark, so most days will see a team either lock up a spot in the postseason or be eliminated from playoff contention going forward. That will have a big impact on a team’s motivation, and in turn, we will see some lofty NHL betting odds. The Chicago Blackhawks were already the biggest underdog in NH... 

  • BookMaker.eu Once again, I hit the first leg of my NHL Parlay Picks and missed the second leg this past Saturday. To be fair, I was very fortunate to hit my first leg though as the Tampa Bay Lightning struggled to get past the Chicago Blackhawks. Tampa Bay and Chicago were tied 1-1 with a minute left to play when Brayden Point found the back of the net. The Lightning added an empty net goal with t... 

  • BookMaker.eu All but two NHL teams will be in action this Saturday as we are nearing the end of the regular season. Every team except the Nashville Predators has 20 games or less left to play, and that has led to the playoff picture taking shape. The Western Conference looks pretty clearcut at the moment, but Nashville and Calgary are both hoping to sneak their way into the postseason. The Eastern... 

  • BookMaker.eu Unfortunately, I missed my NHL Parlay Pick on Saturday afternoon. The Boston Bruins were able to take care of business against the New York Rangers even though the Rangers just added Patrick Kane, but the Tampa Bay Lightning continued to disappoint bettors. Tampa Bay lost 5-3 to Buffalo as the defense let down the Lightning once more. The Lightning have now lost five straight games, a... 

  • BookMaker.eu The NHL trade deadline is fast approaching, and Stanley Cup contenders are looking to make the final moves that will hopefully set them apart in their run for the greatest trophy in North American sports. We saw the New York Rangers make the biggest splash yet earlier this week when they made the decision to trade for Patrick Kane, and that has led to a drop in their Stanley Cup betti... 

  • BookMaker.eu Although betting NHL parlays isn’t as popular as betting NBA parlays, the money all spends the same if you win. In fact, since it’s a smaller market without as much attention paid to it, most people will find betting on NHL parlays more profitable than similar bets in the NBA or the NFL. That’s something to have in the back of your mind when you are considering which big league to fol... 

  • BookMaker.eu The Chicago Blackhawks pulled off one of the biggest upsets in recent NHL history on Wednesday night. Chicago was a record underdog per the NHL betting odds a few nights ago when they took on the Toronto Maple Leafs, and they were duly hammered. They have been big underdogs since that point due to a mixture of injuries and opportunity, but they did show some heart with their win over ... 

  • BookMaker.eu It will be interesting to see how much action we see prior to the trade deadline in 10 days. There have already been a handful of trades that should be meaningful this postseason as Toronto got tougher with the acquisition of Ryan O’Reilly from the St. Louis Blues, and the New York Rangers picked up defensive forward Tyler Motte. We are still likely to see a flurry of action though as teams fine tune their rosters for the postseason grind.... 

  • BookMaker.eu History was made in the NHL on Wednesday night. The Toronto Maple Leafs were officially the largest favorites per the NHL betting odds in league history. Toronto closed as a whopping -650 favorite over the decimated Chicago Blackhawks, and the puck line was an unprecedented 2.5 goals. We’ve never seen that before either, and that led to some plucky bettors backing the Blackhawks at that price. The oddsmakers ended up being proven correct as Toronto won the game 5-2 even though there was no scoring in the third period. There’s an substory given this result too. Teams are starting to tank for Connor Bedard who is arguably the best prospect since Connor McDavid was setting the world on fire as a junior hockey star. Bedard was named “the future of hockey” by The Hockey News at just 13 years old, and he was named the MVP at the 2023 World Junior Ice Hockey Championships with 23 points in seven games as he led Canada to its 20th gold medal at the event. A superstar like Bedard can turn a franchise around so teams like Chicago, Columbus, and Anaheim are bottoming out in the hopes of landing him. ... 

  • BookMaker.eu We are about to enter the homestretch of the NHL season. Teams are two-thirds of the way through their schedule, and we will likely see a flurry of moves over the next two weeks as clubs buy or sell prior to the NHL trade deadline on Friday, March 3, 2023. Arizona’s Jakob Chychrun and Vancouver’s Luke Schenn are two of the top targets for teams and could help flip the Stanley Cup odds...

  • BookMaker.eu Sometimes calling a rivalry a ‘battle’ or ‘war’ goes a little too far. In the case of the Edmonton Oilers and Calgary Flames, it doesn’t go far enough. The Battle of Alberta continues with Game 5 of the second round Stanley Cup playoff series in Calgary on Thursday. It’s been three decades since the clubs last met in the postseason, but that hasn’t cooled anything from the provincial neighbors situated roughly 190 miles apart. In fact, it only intensified this series and the animosity is prevale... 

  • BookMaker.eu During the Stanley Cup playoffs a hot goaltender can steal a game and possibly even a series. The St. Louis Blues rode the strong play of Jordan Binnington to the Stanley Cup title a few years ago and the netminder had seemingly found the groove that placed him in the top-five in the Calder Trophy and Vezina Trophy voting in 2019. Binnington was 4-1 in five starts since replacing Ville Husso in Game 4 of the Minnesota series stopping 94.8 percent of the shots he faced. Binnington has been ruled ...
