NHL Bye Weeks Could be Leading to Higher Scores

Finding a border in baseball gambling can sometimes be tough and the majority of the time it results in a blown tire and a complete yard sale. There are, however, a few trends that seem to stay accurate year in and year out and I have identified one in regard to NHL scoring I believe could be advantageous to TV ratings and, more importantly, to your sportsbook account.
The trend I’m talking of is that scoring goes up — way up — when teams get rest. Last night, the first slate after the all-star game, was a microcosm of the as we saw a total of 99 goals played in 14 games. That’s over seven goals per game, and also an OVER/UNDER record of 11-2-1. That wild night closed out a month that saw a significant increase in scoring that increased the NHL goals per game league average to 5.46 and saw teams post a 185-162-31 OVER/UNDER album — a six per cent growth in OVERs from the previous months.
A potential reason for this increase in scoring is that the recently instituted bye weeks. The NHL realized that scoring started to dive in January because of the intense schedule its players were subjected to and wished to do something to curb the tendency. It is a well-established fact that if scoring goes down, so do evaluations, and also this bye week is an easy way to acquire players rested up a bit to give that scoring the tiny boost it needs from the dog days of the NHL season without making a basic change to the rule book. All these bye weeks will finish at the end of the month and I believe that you will almost instantly see scoring go back down to normal.
A Couple of teams to target on the OVER right now are the Wild, Capitals, Blackhawks, Penguins, Stars, Jets and Blues. Throughout the month of January, those teams combined for a 62-22-8 OVER/UNDER record and should simply continue to do damage on the scoresheet within the next month or so. 1 thing you may see is that every one of these teams come from the Central and Metropolitan branches. These are both highest-scoring branches in baseball and it’s not close.
Something to look out for is a shift in NHL totals. Novels are slow to adjust NHL lines and if they do, they probably already missed the tendency or are attempting to persuade you to bet one way or another. When your publication begins throwing out totals of 6 and 6.5, err on the side of caution and possibly avoid those games completely. Nevertheless, you should hammer the OVER whenever you see some of those teams I mentioned previously receive a total of 5 or 5.5 before the present scoring tendency stops.
