Sports Marketplace – NHL Edition
It has been a some time since our last NHL Marketwatch. Mostly due to a few poorly timed vacations by our team and the NHL All-Star weekend, just down the road from us. We are going to try and get back into the flow of it and pick up some units in the process.
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
Phoenix Coyotes +150 over San Jose Sharks
Coming off the NHL All-Star break the Phoenix Coyotes (25-17-9) are heading the HP Pavilion Arena to take on the San Jose Sharks (25-19-6). The Coyotes have had quite a run on the road this season, and have left victorious in their last five road games. Coyote defenseman, Keith Yandle, is coming back from the All-Star game with the longest active point streak in the NHL, at nine games.
The Sharks opened at -172 at Pinnacle and has dropped to -155 despite having a 71 % advantage in public supportaccording to our Betting Trends. We like to see this kind of reverse line movement especially on a good team getting money on the road. BetUS (38-20 +18.06) has triggered a Steam Move on the Coyotes at +155. We are taking the Coyotes, and are hoping to pick up a few units tonight on Versus.
