Here is what the data is telling us for tonight's NHL games ⏬


Penguins @ Sabres


BET: 🔥 Buffalo Sabres at the puck line (-118) with William Hill Sportsbook

📈 66.2% probability, 14.5% edge on the sportsbook's odds.

When our DimersBOT returns to us a probability and an edge on the 'book's odds such as this, you're darn sure that we're going to sit up and take notice. 

The Sabres are enjoying a much improved run of form in the past week that has either seen them win at the moneyline or at the puck line in every single one of their last five games. We're jumping on for the ride at nice odds.

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.

Golden Knights @ Ducks


BET: 🔥 Anaheim Ducks at the puck line (-123) with PointsBet

📈 64.5% probability

The Ducks are a Dimers darling who seem to cash more often than not when we include them in our daily plays, so we're letting it ride. Despite their season record, Anaheim are a whopping 28-17 at the puck line. 

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 our pick. Even if they fall short, you're still sitting on a tidy $100 of bonus bets!
