NHL Daily Betting Guide: January 14


Having a little skin in the game can make watching NHL hockey even more exciting.

During the 2021-22 season, Daily Faceoff will help you become an improved bettor with this betting model and our betting tools.

Every day we will review every match, sports betting odds (via PointsBet) and odds for every winning team based on the model created by Philippe Boulsink. Based on these two numbers, we can quickly identify which teams to bet on, which teams to avoid and which lines to watch throughout the day.

You can quickly determine which teams are the best bets by following this simple table:

All “recommended bets” are 1 unit bets.

I will also provide best bet analysis and update this post throughout the day to report important news regarding injuries, roster changes and the departure of backup goalkeepers.

The number to watch is the « Diff ». which is the percentage difference between the projected Win% of the model and the projected Win% based on PointsBet odds. To find out how odds convert to percentages, use our odds calculator.


The model doesn’t suggest any bets on tonight’s three-game slate, so here’s a bonus bet:

Nathan MacKinnon Over 4.5 shots (-136)

If there’s one player in the NHL who’s close to a lock for more than five shots, it’s MacKinnon. He’s fired five or more shots in 10 of his last 12 games, averaging 6.1 shots per game over that span.

The Avalanche are a huge favorite tonight (-577), so MacKinnon should have plenty of chances in the offensive zone. He hasn’t seen the Coyotes yet this season, but he averaged 4.7 shots per game in seven games a season ago.

Game choice

Minnesota in regulation against Anaheim (+100)

Alright, I’m on a cold streak right now and I trust the Minnesota Wild to pull me through. The Wild are on a two-game winning streak and tonight they host a back-to-back Ducks team. Minnesota has also been excellent on home rink this season, winning 11 of 14 games. The Ducks are just 7-7-3 on the road.

Choice of accessories

Sam Reinhart over 0.5 assists against Dallas (+145)

Mathew Barzal scored in the last game but he didn’t give us the help we needed. That’s a shame. Going straight back to props tonight and riding with Sam Reinhart. He’s bringing in a very nice +145, which is a solid gain considering he’s hit that number in four of his last five games. He’s on the Panthers’ first line with Barkov and he’s on their best power-play unit, so he’ll have a good chance of getting an apple.
