NHL Consensus Picks Expert’s Report Card: After 30 NHL Season Games
After every ten games I write about how teams would be doing if you bet $100 on them every game. This will be the third edition of this series. The Boston Bruins were the last team to reach the thirty-game mark. Boston reached it after an overtime loss on Saturday night. The odds I use to keep track of this data can be found at BetOnline. My NHL picks report card after 10 NHL games can be found here and another one breaking down my free NHL picks after 20 NHL season games.
Top NHL Hockey Teams
Vegas Golden Knights
For the third straight edition, the Golden Knights are the best team to bet on. Vegas constantly finds themselves as an underdog in big games, but they have been able to perform well. If you had bet $100 on every Golden Knights game this season, you would have won $1273.02. If you are looking to bet on a team, the Golden Knights seem to be a safe bet.
Tampa Bay Lightning
The Lightning are another team that has been on this list before. Tampa Bay continues to dominate teams offensively. Tampa Bay’s Nikita Kucherov and Steven Stamkos are first and second in the league in points. The Lightning would have won you 982.27 if you bet $100 on every game. If Tampa Bay continues to stay healthy, they are a Stanley Cup favorite.
The Predators enter this list of top three teams to bet on for the first time this season. Nashville is on track to make a return to the Stanley Cup, if they continue to play as well as they are. If you had bet $100 on the Predators during the time that I wrote the first article, you would have lost $166.76. Now the Predators would have won you $744.57 if you bet $100 on all thirty-two of their games.
Worst NHL Hockey Teams
The Coyotes are once again at the bottom of the list. Arizona cannot seem to catch a break. The Coyotes were expected to be a team that would have improved after last season, but they have only gotten worse. If you bet $100 on all the Coyotes games, you would have lost $1765.50. Arizona is a team to keep away from.
The Sabres are another team that have found themselves at the bottom of the standings all season long. Buffalo has is above only the Coyotes in the standings. The Sabres have been in rebuild mode for quite a while. Buffalo will need to make some moves at the trade deadline or in free agency if they want to turn things around. If you had bet $100 on all the Sabres games, you would have lost $1594.27.
For the first time this season, the Senators find themselves on the bottom of this list. Ottawa looked like they were on the rise when they made a blockbuster trade for Matt Duchene. Instead Duchene has five points in seventeen games. Kyle Turris went to the Predators in this trade. Turris has seventeen points in seventeen games with Nashville. If you bet $100 on the Senators in all their games, you would have lost $838.41.
NHL Hockey Teams With The Biggest Changes
Detroit Red Wings
When I wrote the second edition in this series, the Red Wings were hovering around the even mark. Now if you bet $100 on all the Red Wings games, you would have lost $623.44. Detroit is beginning to feel the pain of a rebuild after maintaining success for multiple decades.
The Flames were looking like a solid team during my second article. Now Calgary has began to fall in the standings. That fall is showing in the money you would have lost betting on them. During the second edition, Calgary would have won you $242.64 at the time. Now if you bet $100 on all the Flames games, you would have lost $202.13.
The defending President Trophy winning team is on the rise again. The Capitals were struggling early, but have gotten back into a rhythm. If you bet $100 on all the Capitals games during the second edition of this series, you would have lost $150.72. Now the Capitals would have won you $454.72 up to this point in the season.
NHL Hockey – The Rest Of The Bunch
Here are how the rest of the NHL teams would have fared if you had bet $100 on them every game until this point in the NHL hockey season.
