  • Which Ice Hockey leagues and events do you cover picks for?

    We have Ice Hockey betting picks for the NHL of course including all the major matches across the USA and Canada, culminating in the Stanley Cup. You will find NHL picks on here throughout the whole season, including playoffs for you to place NHL wagers on.

    We also provide betting picks for the Kontinental Hockey League, otherwise known as simply the KHL. When looking for wagers you might also be interested in the Swedish Hockey League (SHL) and the British Elite League (EIHL) which are both also covered.

  • When will you have Ice Hockey Betting picks?

    The National Hockey League runs from October to June so during this period this page will be packed with the most popular NHL betting picks. Both the British Elite League and Swedish Hockey Leagues run from September through to April while the KHL runs from August through to April.

    This means that for eleven of the twelve months of the year there will be ice hockey betting predictions for you to wager one! We cover regular season as well as all of the playoff matches in all of the mentioned leagues as well as outright betting picks too.

  • Who are the best NHL tipsters?

    If you are looking for the answer to Who will win the 2022 Stanley Cup? Then we have a lot of great Ice Hockey tipsters at OLBG. Some of our tipsters do specialise in NHL betting picks, others specialise in the other leagues whilst some do make predictions on all ice hockey. 

    To see which are the best, check out the individual picks whereby for each pick you will see the tipsters record. You will notice that some have very profitable records. The profit figure looks at the last 6 months of ice hockey picks for that tipster.

    Their consistency can also be seen by looking at the last 6 months in which picks have been placed. A tipster who has been profitable for 4, 5 or 6 of those months will have shown great consistency and you may well want to follow all their Ice Hockey picks.

    Because all our top ice hockey tipsters add comments by each of their picks, this provides you with a huge amount of information before placing your bets. They do all the research for you to make your betting easier. Read comments from different tipsters who have different views on the game and see which are the most convincing to you.

    Also, consider heading over to the 'Best Ice Hockey Tipsters' page which highlights the best of the best hockey tipsters.

  • How often do Favourites win in NHL?

    In comparison to the other US sports, Basketball is top of the pile for winning favourites, then it's the NFL with Baseball bottom of the pile. So where does the NHL fit into the list? It would be about on par with Baseball at the bottom of the list in terms of favourites not being as successful as they are in the other sports.

    In the table below, you can see how the favourites have faired at home and also on the road over the last five regular seasons, obviously, remember that during the 2019-20 season neutral venues were being used which has affected those statistics.

    Season Home Favs Away Favs
    2016-17 .606 (539-890) .562 (190-338)
    2017-18 .606 (579-956) .567 (178-314)
    2018-19 .584 (516-884) .576 (221-384)
    2019-20 .569 (434-763) .553 (176-318)
    2020-21 .643 (314-488) .609 (229-376)
    Overall .598 (2382-3981) .575 (994-1730)

    There have been some teams who perform better as favourites than others, maybe those are more adept at handling the pressure of favouritism, the Washington Capitals are the most successful favourites on home ice over the last five seasons with a win percentage of .542 (103-190) whilst the Vancouver Canucks are the worst with a win percentage of just .346 (27-78) so you can see how vast the difference is between the top and bottom.

    Top Three NHL Teams to back as Favourites

    1. Tampa Bay Lightning (210-310 .677)
    2. Washington Capitals (177-272 .651)
    3. Vegas Golden Knights (135-212 .637)

    Top Three NHL Teams to avoid as Favourites

    1. Detroit Red Wings (22-51 .431)
    2. Buffalo Sabres (32-72 .444)
    3. Ottawa Senators (30-61 .492)
