Here is what the data is telling us for tonight's NHL games โฌ


Devils @ Rangers


BET: ๐Ÿ”ฅ New Jersey Devils at the puck line (-123) with William Hill Sportsbook

๐Ÿ“ˆ 64.5% probability

The Devils are without a win in their last four games, including a 4-0 loss against the New York Rangers in their last outing, but for this game we're taking them to cover.

Our model has NJ bouncing back in this one and AT LEAST keeping the margin down to one goal, with a sneaky chance of a dub.

For a play like this, it's hard to look past this offer from William Hill Sportsbook who are giving new customers in certain states a RISK-FREE bet up to $2021 - see if your state is one of them here. Basically, you can deposit as much or as little as you like (we recommend around $50) and then place your bet on our play. If we get it right, you cash in! If not, that's okay - they'll give you your money back to use again on another bet.

Predators @ Hurricanes


BET: ๐Ÿ”ฅ Nashville Predators at the puck line (-160) with PointsBet

๐Ÿ“ˆ 65.9% probability

Another underdog we're liking at the luck line from today's slate is the Predators as they take on the Carolina Hurricanes.

A massive 65.9% chance that they cover makes the -160 very tasty!

To best use this pick, you can't go wrong when signing up to PointsBet where new customers will be rewarded with some big bonus bets depending on how much you deposit! 

Put $50 into your account, bet the Kings +1.5 and then if they fall short, you're still sitting on a tidy $100 of bonus bets!
