The 2021-22 NHL regular season is winding down, and as teams shore up playoff position, it's a fun time to get involved in the betting action. Five or six games remain on the majority of schedules, as contenders aim to lock down playoff seeding and weaker teams vie for lottery position. Sportsbooks account for these types of trends typically, but that doesn't mean there's some probability and value overlooked when setting lines. So, how does the common bettor read between the lines and pinpoint wagers with profitable upside? Rather than labor through your own research, our Game Predictions tool makes hockey betting easy.

We're confident our cutting-edge tools can help elevate your entire betting strategy to the next level. Loaded with features that can guide your decisions across a variety of sports – from predictions to futures tracking, current trends, player props, live odds and more - we are confident that the latest edition of our premium betting tools is the finest we've ever produced.

Our Game Predictions feature is a major strategic upgrade for sports bettors. It analyzes the night's slate of NHL action and synthesizes which matchups or lines have probability worth betting on at their current odds. The Game Predictions tool also incorprates some self-awareness regarding the unpredictability of sports betting, grading value based on a color scale (red, yellow, green) to reflect confidence in the likelihood of the bet hitting. This way, you can place bets with strong analytical support and feel confident you're getting a good number when submitting a ticket. Check out what the Game predictions tool likes for Friday's NHL slate:

Firing up the Game Predictions tool for Friday, it's not hard to observe that the Minnesota Wild are the side worth playing tonight. The algorithm offers Wild ML as a high-strength wager, meaning the implied probability of Minnesota winning is greater than the odds reflected by PointsBet's Money Line. In fact, as the tool illustrates, the Wild could even be worth a play on the Puck Line tonight at PointsBet's -115 odds. The Kraken have won three in a row, including a stunning upset over the Avalanche, so the tool likes the probability for some regression to the mean against one of the NHL's strongest contenders vying for playoff seeding. Take the Wild on the Money Line or Puck Line tonight if you're looking for an NHL wager with upside.
