|Time||5:30 p.m. ET|
The NHL is back, and sharp bettors are wasting no time to find value.
In fact, the game on which they’ve had the greatest impact so far has been the 5:30 p.m. ET opener between the Penguins and Flyers, and our experts have been in agreement with their take.
Let’s take a look through the lens of the NHL PRO Report.
Note: Odds, data as of 10 a.m. ET.
NHL Sharp Betting Pick: Penguins vs. Flyers
The road side has been deemed the smarter play by the pros and experts, and these odds have seen some movement as a result.
After an impressive 2020 campaign, the Flyers enter 2021 with some lofty expectations, and as a short home favorite, they’ve drawn a slight majority of bettors tonight — 53% as of this morning.
Despite that, though, they’ve seen their moneyline price drop down from opening numbers in the -120/-125 range to -115, which should tell you something about the type of bettors on the other side.
Sure enough, a Bet Signal from Action Labs confirmed the market movement to be caused by sharp action on the Penguins at +100, explaining why they’re now listed at minus-money across much of the market.
Sharp Action edge: Penguins
As mentioned, our NHL betting experts agree with the sharps — two staffers have already taken the Penguins at +100 as of writing.
