Last nights NHL scores couldn’t have gone worse for me. In terms of NHL gambling, you don’t expect for four of six dogs to win on a single night. And yet, that’s what happened, and mine wasn’t one of them.
Every weekday I try to find a live dog. NHL gambling isn’t like the NBA where there are a number of sure things. There very much are live dogs every night. Case and point, November 20th, 2017, where four of six dogs won.
My dog was the Winnipeg Jets to win over the favored Nashville Predators. Winnipeg sat second in the tough Central Division just above Nashville. At +125 it seemed like a safe bet to make.
ARZ +185 4 @ 1 -225 TOR Best Return
CGY +125 4 @ 1 -145 WAS
CBJ -160 3 @ 2 +140 BUF
WPG +125 3 @ 5 -145 NAS Bet Of The Night
NJD +150 4 @ 3 -170 MIN
ANA +160 3 @ 2 -210 SJS
I ignored the +185 Arizona Coyotes becuase I didn’t think they could win again. Not against Toronto. But then that’s exactly what happened. And they weren’t they only dog to win; Calgary (+125), New Jersey (+150) and Anaheim (+160) joined Arizona with wins.
It was a dog conspiracy, where every dog I didn’t bet against showed me not to disrespect them. Noted NHL dogs.

So tonight I’m going with the Vancouver Canucks. Unfortunately Anders Nilsson isn’t making the start. The 6’6″ Swede has been pretty good for the ‘Nucks. Jakob Markstrom has been alright, but alright doesn’t always cut it.
Thankfully the Canucks are playing the Philadelphia Flyers who are on a massive skid right now. The Flyers have lost four in a row and six of their last eight getting shut out twice in the process.
I’m going with the Canucks and rookie Brock Boeser, who has 17 points in 17 games for the not-as-bad-as-we-thought-they’d-be Canucks to continue adding points at Philadelphia’s expense.
