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


Flyers @ Islanders


BET: 🔥 Flyers at the moneyline (+152) with William Hill Sportsbook

📈 6.7% edge on the sportsbooks

We don't mess around here and we're not afraid to go in on value when we see it. Our DimersBOT has checked the data and has identified a big edge on what odds the sportsbooks are offering for Philly to take care of the Islanders in New York.

The public money as it stands doesn't particularly like Philadelphia, but given the fact that these two went to a shootout against each other only 5 days ago proves that the odds should be a little more even here. TAKE ADVANTAGE.

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 the Senators +1.5. If they cover, you cash in! If not, that's okay - they'll give you your money back to use again on another bet.

Predators @ Red Wings


BET: 🔥 Total goals OVER 5.5 (+115) with PointsBet

📈 4.3% edge on the sportsbooks

A couple of teams who have mostly been on the under side of the total goals line this season, our data sees something in the over tonight.

Both the Predators and Red Wings have flirted with the 6-goal mark in the past week and at + odds, this looks like some good value to take.

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 Over and then if they fall short, you're still sitting on a tidy $100 of bonus bets!
