NHL Picks Today: What Does This Table Mean?

The table above displays the record of the last 100 NHL computer picks. We're here to explain how to bet on the NHL and make the best possible picks using our computer's predictions. This data is critical for your handicapping, so read below if anything on the table is unclear.

$ Units Of Opening/Closing:

This figure represents the profits (or losses) of the computer’s last 100 NHL picks made, based on a hockey bettor placing $100 on each game “To Win” indicates a straight-up or moneyline bet that the bettor wins. “ATS” indicates the win based on NHL picks against the spread and “Total O/U” signifies the amount bettors would win on OVER or UNDER wagers.

Record Opening/Closing:

When it comes to the record of the computer’s NHL picks, wins are listed first, losses are second and pushes or ties are listed third. These records cover the same categories as the above – moneylines, spreads, and total bets.

What Is An NHL Computer Pick?

Our computer analyzes every stat in our database and considers each variable to create an expected NHL matchup – based on those findings, it chooses bets that have the most likely outcome.

You'll find picks for every NHL game on today's schedule, helping you choose which moneyline, spread and total to bet on.

Can You Make NHL Picks Today?

Assuming there’s a game to bet on, you can absolutely make an NHL pick for tonight’s matchups. If you’re looking to wager on something other than the moneyline, spread, or total, consider placing a prop or a futures bet on the NHL – keep in mind that a futures bet is a long-term wager, so your bankroll will be tied up with your selection for a bit.

Our computer's NHL picks are an important piece of handicapping info, but if you’re looking for a little more help, consult Odds Shark’s NHL betting guide!

Free NHL Moneyline Picks

Picking an NHL moneyline is simple – all you need to do is bet on which team will walk away with a win on their record. Whether that’s in regulation or overtime, a win for your squad is a cashed bet.

As with all moneyline odds, the team with the minus (-) is the favorite, while the side with the plus (+) is the underdog. Wagering on underdogs will result in higher potential payouts, but they’re valued like that for a reason – risk.

Check out an underdog’s NHL trends or their placement on power rankings charts to see if it’s worth the gamble.

Free NHL Puckline Picks

The puckline is the NHL's version of the spread, where each team is given a certain amount of goals to either win/lose by. Unlike the NFL or the NBA, the NHL spread doesn't typically change from 1.5 for each side.

In that case, the favorite (-1.5) would need to win by at least two goals to win – the underdog (+1.5) can lose by a single goal or win outright to cash a spread bet. The favorite would need to win by at least two goals to win. The dog could lose by a single goal and still win on the spread.

If you’re up to it, you can wager on alternate spreads on most sportsbooks. For example, if you think the Tampa Bay Lightning will absolutely crush the Anaheim Ducks, you can use an alternate spread like -2.5 (win by at least three goals) to increase your payout.

Total Goals NHL Picks: OVER/UNDER

With a total bet, you're wagering on the total number of goals scored by most teams. You'll typically get similar odds for the total as the spread. Totals can be considered "neutral" bets because you aren't backing any single side – a typical total in the NHL is anywhere from 5.5 to 6.5, with high-scoring matches sitting at 7.0.

In the case of even numbers, like 7.0, those can end in a push where your wager is refunded if the game ends at exactly 7 goals.

NHL Player Props

Props (short for proposition), are bets that are centered around a player, or the team as a whole. Props won’t have a direct outcome on the match and are just concerned with your selection reaching a certain stat line.

For example, you'll find prop markets for goals, points, shots and team totals. A high goalscorer like Connor McDavid might see his goal line set at 1.5, meaning he’ll have to score two or more goals for your bet to cash. For goalies, you'll find props on how many shots they'll face, how many saves they'll make, or if they’ll record a shutout.

NHL Picks and Parlays

A parlay allows you to pull multiple bets into a single ticket. You can put any combination of moneyline, puckline, totals and prop bets on the same ticket. Check out our parlay calculator to see what the odds and payout would be on your potential parlay!

Depending on the book you can combine multiple bets from a single game (same-game parlay) or choose selections from around the league. Make sure to check with your sportsbook to see if you can or can't create single-game parlays.

NHL Futures Picks

Futures are bets on events that will happen at a later date, usually towards the end of the regular season. For the NHL that could mean betting on a team's Stanley Cup odds, the Eastern and Western Conference winner, or what player might win one of the various NHL awards.

Who cares if a Canadian team doesn't win a Stanley Cup?


Futures are available to bet on before the regular season even begins – you’ll see these lines change pretty drastically throughout an 82-game schedule. The best odds are usually available early, with the winners for each category slowly narrowing down as the year goes on.

NHL Consensus Picks

We gather data for every NHL market to show you where the public is putting their money. Are they backing the Montreal Canadiens to win at home, or are they betting on the traveling Toronto Maple Leafs? The NHL public consensus for this game’s moneyline might be 70% for the Leafs, which means their team represents 70% of all moneyline bets for that matchup.

A common strategy using consensus picks involves “fading the public”, a practice that simply means you go against the flow and pick the smaller percentage bet. Fans are known to bet on their favorite teams or just go with name recognition, leading some to believe the other side of these contests will be undervalued.

NHL Picks: Stanley Cup Betting

All 32 NHL teams have their eye on the prize at the end of the year, and that's the Stanley Cup. Making a Stanley Cup futures wager is simply choosing which squad will take home the Cup this year.

Because hockey is a random sport by nature, not to mention it has the toughest playoffs, the odds of winning the 130-year-old trophy are always high and lucrative. Do some handicapping and select your future champion today!

NHL Draft Picks

The Stanley Cup goes to the best team in the NHL, but what about the worst teams? Low-ranking teams receive the best odds to draft the first overall pick, a fan-favorite category to bet on during the NHL draft. Everyone wants to feel smart and pick the correct top draft pick, so why not give it a go?

Other offers for the draft include what order the first three picks will be, whether a player will go higher or lower than their expected slot, or if a player will go to a specific team.

Stanley Cup Playoff Picks

Think a team on the bubble of the playoff picture will make the postseason? How about a team that's in the playoff picture falling out? You can bet on whether teams will make or break the playoffs and we’ve got you covered with our NHL playoff odds and predictions.

These can be especially enticing if you pick a team at the beginning of the season, maybe an underdog or your favorite dark horse candidate. Teams sneak into wild-card spots all the time in the NHL, so anything’s on the table for these playoff picks.
