The NHL playoffs have started and we believe that a combination of several factors will create contrarian value in the NHL playoff sports betting marketplace.
- There is generally more excitement during the playoffs. More fans watch the games, and more casual bettors place bets. This leaves more on the table for sharper bettors.
- Our data shows SportsInsights’ contrarian approaches work better in big games such as nationally-televised games — and the playoffs.
- The NHL’s popularity has continued to rise since the NHL’s dark days immediately after their last strike several years ago. This means more of the public — and more square bettors — are around.
Our analysts will be focusing on our “bet against the public” research and trends in the NHL marketplace!
