May 24, 2022 11:24 AM

Welcome to the daily NHL betting market report, your source for comprehensive and dynamic hockey betting analysis. This page will be updated throughout the day as needed. Be on the lookout for player prop bets. All recommended bets are tracked as one unit (bet to win one unit on favorite and risk one unit on underdog) unless stated otherwise. If you want, you can use the model projection to bet in proportion to its perceived edge. Let’s look at each series from a betting perspective.

Market Report for Monday, May 22nd

There were no recommended bets on Tuesday. Player prop bets went 1-3. Ondrej Palat went over 1.5 shots on goal, but Nick Paul and Jordan Kyrou didn’t come close. Aleksandar Barkov was the biggest disappointment, though, as he took just two of the Panthers 49 shots.

Record: 112-109, -5.4 units, -2.4 percent ROI

Market Report for Tuesday, May 24th

Let’s look at things from a betting perspective.

Carolina Hurricanes (-110) at New York Rangers (-110)

This series has become a goaltending duel, as the two teams have combined for just nine goals in three games, and neither goaltender has allowed more than two in a game. Andrei Vasilevskiy must be licking his chops at the thought of playing either of these teams in the Eastern Conference Final. There hasn’t been much separating the Hurricanes and Rangers at even strength, but the Rangers have looked a lot better than they did against the Penguins. Their offense isn’t clicking, but Shesterkin is starting to turn it on. Shesterkin has posted a .956 save percentage in three games versus Carolina, and if the Rangers can match his effort, they might just even up the series at 2-2. My model estimates that the Hurricanes should be priced around -115, and given the shot total in Game 3, that seems to be reasonable. Antti Raanta has been great in the playoffs, and he’s been very good in this series, but if Shesterkin has found his form, betting against him doesn’t sound like a wise move. Unless, of course, the market moves toward the Rangers. I’d bite on the Hurricanes at plus money.
