Even with four scheduled games having been postponed, the NHL is still offering a healthy Thursday serving for bettors. And where there are plentiful betting options, there is often sharp action, as the pros have more opportunities to find some value.
That’s exactly what they’ve done on tonight’s Red Wings-Predators matchup. Our PRO Report tells the story below.
NHL Pick: Red Wings vs. Predators
Big bets from sharps have been landing on the underdog, and a PRO System gives good reason to follow those bets.
Most bettors aren’t thrilled at the idea of taking the 3-9-2 Red Wings, even at a plus-money price. However, despite the fact they’ve drawn just 38% of moneyline bets as of writing, the Red Wings’ price has gotten quite a bit more expensive.
Detroit has gone from early opening numbers in the +200 range down to a consensus of just +150, which should tell you something about how sharps are betting the game.
Sure enough, four Bet Signals from Action Labs have confirmed four separate instances of market movement caused specifically by sharp action.
Sharp Action edge: Red Wings
Another indicator of that sharp action: the 38% of bets on Detroit have generated 58% of the actual money hitting this game. That means big bets, the ones more likely to come from the pros are hitting the underdog.
Big Money edge: Red Wings
And while it’s always useful to know which side the successful players (sharps) are taking, it’s perhaps even more useful to know that history suggests this type of action to be worth following.
In this case, Detroit’s bet-vs.-money split fits our Tickets vs Money NHL Dogs PRO System, which has provided an +8% ROI on a 47-percent win rate.
