Best NHL Atlantic Division Betting Tips

Always remember that good defence and goaltending trumps high powered offence in NHL hockey. Too many bettors in Canada only look at goal scoring when they’re planning their bets. They forget about a great defence’s ability to shut down a strong offence. Always start with the goaltending matchup. 

It’s also good to know that home ice advantage is really only a statistically big deal for the NHL’s best teams. So don’t buy into the home ice hype. Most of the NHL only wins a bit more than 50% of their home games. Betting on the away team is not as big of a risk as it would be in the other major sports. Obviously, hockey is a lower scoring game than football or basketball. This means betting on the over/under of any given game is more difficult than it is with other sports. Like we said above, remember to always look at the goalie match-up first. 

Also keep in mind, the NHL’s worst teams still win a decent number of games. The best NHL teams may win about 70% of their games. Whereas the lower tier teams still win about 30% of their games. We have strong parity throughout the whole NHL, and betting lines will reflect that fact. So you may not see the payoff potential you would see elsewhere in other sports.  

Some follow what’s referred to as the zigzag theory when they bet on NHL. In a nutshell, you’re betting on a team that just lost, because they are due to bounce back and win. Be careful trying this. This theory doesn’t really apply to strong or weak teams that are likely to go on a big streak. It is a good enough strategy when two average and evenly matched teams are playing each other. But it forgets to factor in hot goaltenders, injuries, or a few other things that may be causing a team to lose games.
