12-9-7 on Hockey this season up 4.26 units

Going to start betting NHL today. I like what I have seen from some teams in the first few games of the season. I usually wait a few more games before I bet, but there is some value tonight.

Hurricanes at -195 for 3 units. Canucks allow 4.5 goals a game and now face the leaders of the Eastern Conference so far in this young season. Both of these teams dominated on their home ice when they met last season. The second overall pick in the NHL draft, Andrei Svechnikov became the first player in NHL history born after the year 2000 to score a goal. The Hurricanes have some exciting young players besides Andrei, like Teuvo Teravainen, Sebastian Aho, Lucas Wallmark, and Martin Necas. Canucks have not been able to kill the penalty this season and I expect the Hurricanes to take advantage of that tonight.

Avalanche at +140 for 3 units. Matt Calvert returns to Columbus tonight. Calvert scored the winning goal in the first ever Blue Jackets playoff win against Pittsburgh. Alan Cole helped the Blue Jackets push into the playoffs last season, but he now also plays for Colorado. Colorado is top 5 in goals for and goals allowed this season, while Columbus is outside of the top 10 in both of those important categories. Colorado has a better power play and penalty kill. Colorado is just better so I will gladly take them at plus money.
