We can’t stop winning our NHL gambling bet of the night. With the Carolina Hurricane’s win over the Washington Capital on the road we’re starting to build some good momentum. Tonight we’re going to try something different and use the Canadian Line.
For those of you who are relative new to NHL gambling you might not know what the Canadian Line is. And that’s fine. I didn’t know what it was until a few months ago. But it’s a great little wrinkle to make finding a good “dog” to lay some cheddar on.
So as you know, in our bet of the night we pick a dog for the night. A team that’s unfancied to be victorious based on the line that Vegas set. We’re going to change that a bit. And use the Canadian Line to bet that the favored will do better than the 1.5 goal spread.
The way the Canadian Line works is that for every game a 1.5 goal spread is set. In order for the bet to come through the dog must lose by more than 1.5 goals, or conversely the dog must lose by more than the 1.5 goals spread. Tonight’s slate of games represent the perfect opportunity to get acquainted with the Canadian Line.

There are five games on the schedule, it should be enough to pick a dog. But two road teams are at EVEN odds and one game has both the home and road team at -110. So the only dog left is Vancouver on the road to Columbus or Arizona at home to Edmonton. Both of those are absolute dogs.
I don’t care who the Arizona Coyotes face it’s going their going to be considerable dogs. Even if that team is as bad as they are (if not worse) than they are recently. Like the Oilers. McDavid’s boys have a single point over their last five to the ‘Yotes four. It’s like the only way Peter Chiarelli figured he can get a good puck moving defenseman is to take for one.
Even with all that, I fancy the Oilers to take the game. The Coyotes are just that bad collectively. Connor McDavid could take them on single handily. And just might. So we went for the Canadian Line. At +220 it’s a good return.
So the Edmonton Oilers have to win by two goals or more for this to pay. Which is possible against a team like Arizona who just can’t seem to stop pucks. I know what Edmonton’s record looks like recently. But look at the teams they played Chicago (twice) Winnipeg (twice), and Nashville. Please. Those teams are light years ahead of the Coyotes. We’re confident Edmonton can win, and win comfortably.
Stats To Date (6/8)-75%
We are correct three-quarters of the time. What a stat. You won’t get this kind of accuracy anywhere else. So you better get dialed in before we start putting this behind a pay wall. At some point. Maybe. Anyone know how to do that?
