Another week in the NHL is here, with several interesting matchups set to take place on the ice all over the United States and Canada. Those matchups mean more chances for hockey bettors to take advantage of the massive amount of betting opportunities that are out there in the league. Here, we look at the top-three NHL betting opportunities for this week, including some favorable scheduling spots and a marquee inter-conference matchup.
Top NFL Betting Opportunities for Week 20 | 3 Hockey Games to Win Big
Flyers vs. Oilers
When: Tuesday, February 21
Where: Rogers Place, Edmonton
Time: 9:00 PM EST
Our first favorable betting look in the NHL comes from Edmonton, where the Edmonton Oilers will host the Philadelphia Flyers. The Flyers will be playing for the second straight night in this contest, as they take on an Oilers team that is fighting for its playoff life. From a strategy standpoint, we could see the Oilers win by a wide margin against a road-weary Philadelphia team.
Instead of simply betting on the Oilers to win the game, this could be a good opportunity to bet them to win on the puckline. The Oilers could end up winning this game by multiple goals, to where laying the goal and a half might be the best move. It will be worth checking the puckline prices to see what the odds are, as the Oilers are a play at anywhere near the standard -110 odds.
Sabres vs. Panthers
When: Friday, February 24
Where: FLA Live Arena, Sunrise, FL
Time: 7:00 PM EST
On Friday, the Buffalo Sabres will take on the Florida Panthers, in another interesting back-to-back spot in the NHL. This will be the second straight day that the Sabres will be playing against a team based in Florida. They will have taken on the Tampa Bay Lightning on Thursday night, before going at it with the Panthers on Friday, in a spot where the Panthers could get a much-needed win.
The Panthers enter this week on the outside looking in as they try to earn a playoff spot in the Eastern Conference. They are a point back of the two Wild Card spot in the Eastern Conference coming into Monday, and wins in games like this one are just what the doctor ordered for their playoff hopes. This could be another spot where laying the puckline with a home favorite against a road-weary opponent is the way to go.
Kings vs. Rangers
When: Sunday, February 26
Where: Madison Square Garden, NY
Time: 5:00 PM EST
Finally, we look at the Sunday matchup between the Los Angeles Kings and New York Rangers as another great betting look for this week on the ice. The Kings are one of the hottest teams in the NHL going into this week, as they have won four games in a row coming out of the weekend. Here, they take on a Rangers team that will be playing for the second day in a row.
No matter which way this game goes from a betting perspective, this is a game that could feature the two Stanley Cup finalists later in the season. Both teams are solidly in the playoff picture in their respective conferences. Not only would a win here be helpful to either side in the standings, but would also make a statement of their intent to win a title this year.
