Sports Marketplace – NHL Edition
Due to some changes on the Sports Insights staff, itt has been a while since our last edition of NHL Marketwatch. But we are back, and hope to get Marketwatch back to a weekly column, and more importantly, back into the positive for units won.
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 Game to Watch
Ottawa Senators +145 over Philadelphia Flyers
When looking at the NHL standings, these two teams are polar opposites. The Flyers have amassed 103 points and are tied with Washington for the top seed in the Eastern Conference. Meanwhile, the Senators have a measley 70 points and are tied with the Florida Panthers in the conference basement. So it comes to no surprise that the public is taking Philadelphia in this game to a tune of 72% of all moneyline wagers.
The favored Flyers opened at -170 at CRIS and has dropped to -155 despite all of the public support. Similar line movement (from -160 to -144) has taken place at Pinnacle. Our Betting Systems have tracked two 5Dimes Steam Moves (231-184 +43.94 units won) and a 5Dimes Smart Money play (21-19 +6.46 units won) on Ottawa.
The betting percentages, line movement, betting system plays, and the fact that Ottawa is a live home dog all fit into Sports Insights investing method, and this looks like a good contrarian play on tonight’s NHL slate.
