NHL: November's Best & Worst Bets

Jamie Benn Dallas

With some teams at the 25 games played mark in the NHL season, we’re at a point where teams either start to standout as serious Cup contenders or serious contenders for the #1 overall draft pick. While the Montreal Canadiens are the class of the league as far as standings are concerned, here’s the best and worst teams at cashing in for their backers in November.

Best OVER/UNDER teams in November

The NHL’s top OVER team in November was the Colorado Avalanche who went 10-4 O/U. The Avalanche remain in last place in the Central division despite ranking sixth in the league in goals per game. Ironically enough, the Patrick Roy led team is allowing the third most goals per game in the NHL. Colorodo is followed by the surging San Jose Shark (8-4-1) and the Canadiens (8-3-2).

The league’s top UNDER team for the month was the Dallas Stars (4-9). Oddsmakers must have taken notice after Dallas was the second best OVER team in October. Jamie Benn and company continue to lead the league in goals per game and are in the middle of the pack in terms of goals allowed.

Best OVER Teams in November
  • Avalanche 10-4 (71.4%)
  • Sharks 8-4-1 (61.5%)
  • Canadiens 8-3-2 (61.5%)
Best UNDER Teams in November
  • Stars 4-9 (69.2%)
  • Senators 5-7 (58.3%)
  • Maple Leafs 6-8 (57.1%)

Best and Worst Teams to Bet on

It was a good month to be an Arizona Coyotes backer (if such a thing exists). Based on making $100 money line bets on each of their games in November, the team was +620, which beats October’s top team, the Stars, who were +597. The Columbus Blue Jackets (+545) have bounced back after an ugly October (-784), while Dallas continues to be a great bet (+506).

Meanwhile, the Carolina Hurricanes led the way as the worst team to bet on. Betting $100 on each of their games in November would’ve put you in a $686 hole.
