With the NHL
season beginning Wednesday, we thought we would give you an NHL Betting Primer
that you can refer to throughout the season.
There are several ways to make money betting hockey and you could have a successful NHL season if you are willing to put in a little work alongside the tools we have at Win Daily. Let’s get this thing started!!
into a few important terms you’ll be reading about daily at Cash with the Flash
This is the money
you have on account somewhere or in your pocket if you live in a state where
sports wagering is legal. Cash with the Flash has a bankroll of 100 units for
hockey this season.
Think of a
unit as cash and a unit is between one and five percent of your total bankroll.
If you have a bankroll of $1000 dollars and divide that by two percent, each
unit would be worth two dollars and a five-unit bet would cost you 10 bucks. As
your bankroll increases, the unit price rises and decreases the same way during
inevitable cold streaks.
hear this term EVERYWHERE at Win Daily Sports and Cash with the Flash Best
Bets. Generally, you don’t want to wager more than five percent of your
bankroll on any given contest. That’s why cappers refer to plays by “units” and
not “stars”. We’ll show you how that works next.
This is the
most popular method and one we’ll be using throughout the NHL season. Most of
the books offer .20 cent lines meaning there’s a .20 cent difference between
the favorite and the underdog.
If I want to
play Detroit, and the capper suggests a three-unit play on Las Vegas to beat
Detroit, you would need to risk 4.65 units to win three units. Playing a four-unit
play or higher at -155 should rarely be done because you’ve broken the golden
rule of bankroll management by going over the five percent rule.
thing you’d like to avoid is taking chances of playing favorites over -200 because
the risk far exceeds the rewards on wagers like this. There are certainly times
when these bets MUST be played but for the most part, you should avoid these
same thing as the MLB run line and your sheet will look like this;
believe Las Vegas will win by two or more goals, you would need to wager one unit
to win 2.4 units. The reason the favorite pays out so well is that most hockey
games are one-goal affairs with 10 percent of games ending with a score of 3-2.
Conversely, wagering on Detroit to cover the -1.5 goals would be unwise as it
would cost 2.2 units to win just one unit.
works the same way as an MLB total and the sheet will look like this;
Las Vegas under 5.5 goals (-110)
Las Vegas over 5.5 goals (-110)
mindful that 10 percent of NHL games end with a 3-2 score, you will wager 1.10
unit to win one unit on the scenario you think will likely happen. You will see
more five-unit plays on lines like these as an extra half unit over our five-unit
max bet won’t be that costly if you don’t do it too often.
This bet is fun because the totals of every game are involved and the number on a 10-game slate will begin around 52 goals to as high as 70 goals. Usually, these bets payout at even money to has high as +1.50. Vegas Insider offers a monthly Grand Salami Tracker you can use to see what happened last season on any given night in the NHL.
The Closing Number
regarding injuries and such happens all the time and that usually moves the
line one way or the other.
you laid down the -155 on Vegas to beat Detroit and at four o’clock in the
afternoon word leaks that Vegas forward Max Pacioretty is ruled out. That line
will likely drop to -135 or less and could close closer to -115 at faceoff. If
you played Vegas at -155 you ended up on the wrong side of the line. Do that too
often and you will lose in the long term.
really LOVE a line, I like to make my hockey wagers 30 minutes prior to faceoff
and then later check at Pinnacle to see
what the actual closing line was for that game. If I’m under the number I am a
happy camper and if I’m not I know I must prepare better the next day.
with the Flash Best Bets usually avoids these types of plays because of the risk
involved. A parlay is a group of two or more bets (legs) and all bets must-win
for the ticket to pay off. The more bets on the ticket, the more unlikely the
ticket will pay off. Vegas Insider offers a free calculator for you to
determine what an individual ticket should pay off if it hits.
This is just
like baseball and goaltenders are to hockey what pitchers are to baseball.
Anyone handicapping a game without considering the goaltender is not doing it
right and Cash
with the Flash Best Bets spends more time talking about goaltending than
anything else. Corsica
is the best free advanced stats website and their goaltending
stats are the best in the business.
avoid stats like goals-against averages and wins and stick to stats like Expected
Save Percentage (xSV%), Delta Save Percentage (dSV%) and Goals
Saved Above Average (GSAA) as truer indicators of how a goaltender is
really doing. Corsica
Hockey has all these stats and more and totally FREEat their amazing
all I have for you today. Cash
