Sports Marketplace – NHL Edition
The NHL Marketwatch is back. In the 2009-10 season we ended with a record of 13-11 and +6.43 units won. We will be looking to build on that this season, while we continue to find value in the NHL marketplace.
Hockey can be a very profitable sport to bet on when you base it off moneyline odds, especially when betting underdogs. The “plus odds” is a reason that NHL moneyline dogs can show value over time. Most people like to win – thus overvaluing winning teams. Our selections on moneyline underdogs will normally hit at less than 50%, but the “plus odds” payoff makes it a profitable investment.

Sports MarketWatch – NHL Games to Watch
New York Rangers +110 over Colorado Avalanche
With only 4-5 games played by each team this season there is not a lot of history for us to look at when judging these games, which for our purposes is a good thing. This forces us to forget the teams, their records and everything else going on with the game and concentrate on the lines, market percentages and how they are moving in relation to each other.
We are liking the looks of the New York Rangers. With 69% of the public taking the Avalanche in moneyline bets the line has dropped from -125 at open Sunday around 1:30 p.m. to -115 at CRIS. This game has the second most bets, 8323, in the NHL today according to our betting trends as of release. ASmart Money play has been triggered on this game, but this early in the season, there isn’t enough info to warrant giving it a lot of weight.
New York Rangers +110 (Matchbook)
