The 2018-19 NHL season is in full swing. After every ten or so games this season, I will be writing about how every NHL team would be doing if you bet $100 against the money line. This shows if the bettors are getting values on each team not based on how much they are winning in total. The data is collected using BetOnline money lines before each game.
After all the games on Tuesday night, every NHL team except the Florida Panthers and New Jersey Devils have played 10 games this season. The Anaheim Ducks, Vancouver Canucks, and Calgary Flames have all played 13 games. The standings are still beginning to take shape as some teams pick up the pace, while others who have looked really good, fall back down to Earth. Here is how the NHL has shaped so far.
Check out our recommended NHL betting sites to get in on the action.
After failing to make the playoffs last season, the Oilers seem to be picking up the pace this season. Edmonton has gone 6-4-1 to begin the season, which is on pace to have them competing for a playoff spot. If you bet $100 on every Oilers game, you would have won $261.96. With Connor McDavid on the roster, I believe the Oilers could keep up the success.
The Canadiens are another team that failed to compete for a playoff spot last season. Montreal made a lot of moves that made people believe they were going into a rebuild this season. Instead, the Canadiens have started out with a 6-3-2 record. Montreal would have won you $259.74 if you bet $100 on every one of their games. I would keep an eye on the Canadiens for a little bit longer before buying into the hype.
Vegas Golden Knights
After being one of the biggest surprises in the NHL last season, the Golden Knights have not been great in terms of betting this season. Vegas has started out the season with a 5-6-1 record. On top of that, the Golden Knights have been favored to win most of their games. The Golden Knights would have lost you $338.27 if you bet $100 on every one of their games.
The Washington Capitals have seemed to be on a little bit of a Stanley Cup hangover. After winning the Stanley Cup last season, Washington has started out this season 5-3-2. The Capitals have been favored in a lot of their games because of last season’s success, which has made their betting numbers less than impressive. If you bet $100 on every Capitals game, you would have lost $143.11.
Rest of the NHL
Here is how the rest of the NHL is doing if you bet $100 on each of their games.
BOLD means that team has a negative value.
