The Friday night NHL contest on ESPN+ between the Avalanche and Devils fits a 64% successful betting system that dates back to 2005.

The betting algorithm has a 12% return on investment (ROI) over a lengthy sample size.

Since 2005, if you had wagered $100 per game on the roughly 55 NHL games per year that have fit this algorithm, you’d be up about $10,000. That’s roughly $600 per year.

Compare the 12% ROI to the average annual return of the S&P 500, which has hovered at around 8% for over a century.

That index is down about 19% year-to-date. Meanwhile, Bitcoin, for instance, is down about 57% during that same timeframe.

Still, despite similar principles regarding long-time horizons and sample sizes, don’t use this betting algorithm as an alternative to investing in the stock market. Sports betting inherently has more variance game-to-game.
