Sports Marketplace – NHL Edition
Similar to the start of last season the NHL Marketwatch is off to a slow start, with the Toronto Maple Leafs unable pull it out against the Tampa Bay Lightning. The Leafs couldn’t put anything together, going 0 for 5 in power plays in their sixth straight loss. The Lightning’s Steven Stamkos had a stand out game, scoring two goals.
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.

This week we will be taking the Ottawa Senators (9-7-1) to beat the Philadelphia Flyers (11-4-2). Despite the Flyers coming into this game with an impressive winning streak, they will be in for a tough game facing Brian Elliot, who is 4-0 with 0.84 goals-against average against the Flyers.
Philadelphia opened at -175 at 5Dimes and is now at -165. The public is heavily on the Flyers, with them getting 71% of moneyline bets with 1,580 bets on this game. A Smart Money play has been triggered on the Senators by Olympic (3-2, +1.97) to help support the trends in reverse line movement we have seen so far.
