NHL Monday Preview: Odds, Trends for Top Games

Bet NHL with William Hill, America’s #1 sportsbook.

The field for the Stanley Cup Playoffs is mostly set. Tonight’s nine-game slate, however, features the final team looking to clinch a postseason bid as well as an affair between the top-2 teams in the one division race that hasn’t been settled yet.

At 7 p.m. ET/4 p.m. PT, the Canadiens host the Oilers. Montreal is looking for the fourth and final playoff spot out of the North Division, whereas Edmonton is in second place. The Canadiens are eight points ahead of the fifth-place Flames, and only need to secure one point in tonight’s clash to officially make it to the postseason.

Yet, the Oilers find themselves as the slight road favorites, as they’re displayed at -115 on the moneyline at William Hill. The Canadiens, who are in the midst of a three-game losing skid, are at -105.

The majority of William Hill bettors are rolling with the Oilers here, as they’ve snagged 76% of the total number of tickets and 70% of the total dollars wagered among all moneyline bets against the Canadiens.

Two East Division playoff teams square off at 7 p.m. ET/4 p.m. PT, with the third-place Bruins at home against the fourth-place Islanders. Boston is one point ahead of New York in the standings, while first place (Penguins) and second place (Capitals) are finalized. The third-place team would face Washington in the opening round of the playoffs, whereas the fourth-place team would take on Pittsburgh.

The Bruins are tied for the biggest favorites on the board tonight at -165, with the Jets also at -165 vs. the Canucks. The Islanders are +145 to pick up a key victory on the road.

While the Bruins have attracted 77% of the total number of tickets, it’s a much tighter 54% for total dollars wagered among all moneyline bets against the Islanders.

A monumental clash between the two teams with the lowest Stanley Cup odds at William Hill Nevada takes place at 10 p.m. ET/7 p.m. PT. The Golden Knights currently lead the way at +400, followed by the Avalanche at +450. Vegas is also ahead of Colorado in the West Division by four points, and would lock up its third division title in four seasons with a victory at home tonight.

The Avalanche are actually -115 at T-Mobile Arena, whereas the Golden Knights at -105. Yet, the majority of William Hill bettors are rolling with the home underdog. Vegas has drawn 65% of the total number of tickets and 88% of the total dollars wagered among all moneyline bets against Colorado.
