    Odds for each NHL team to make the playoffs in the 2014-15 season. Odds courtesy of Bovada.lv.



    The puck drops on the NHL season Wednesday, below are the odds for each team to participate in the postseason. Some teams are locks to have a good season and reach the playoffs, while others nonetheless optimistic at the start of year, are longshots.

    The Chicago Blackhawks lost in Game 7 of the Conference Finals to the Los Angeles Kings but are the favorites to win the Stanley Cup. The Hawks are also the most likely team to make the playoffs with -1100 odds. You would need to have greater than 91.7 percent confidence (which is 1100/(100+1100)) in Chicago playing in the postseason to place this wager.

    The Bruins (-1000), Penguins (-850), Ducks (-800) and Blues (-800) round out the top five most likely teams to be skating in late April.

    Buffalo, the worst team in our Power Rankings, has the longest odds at +400 to surprise in the Atlantic Division and make the playoffs in the East. If you agree with the bookmakers and think the Sabres won't reach the postseason, you can bet that too, Buffalo is -600 to extend its playoff drought to four straight seasons.

    The Predictalator

    The Predictalator is the most advanced sports forecasting software available today because it has the ability to account for all of the relevant statistical interactions of the players, coaches, officials, home field advantage and weather in each game.

    Picks for every game, including our Play Value Key and Calculator recommendations for optimal bankroll management and access to the Play Analyzer can be purchased in the Shop or by game here.

    05/10/2017 Highlight: With baseball season now into its second month, we can leverage our ResultsFinder tool to profile our season-to-date numbers. MLB sides and totals continue to remain extremely profitable despite a recent run of bad variance to start May. The Predictalator's record of 272-250 on sides and totals this season doesn't look all that impressive, but that's because the simulations have sided with underdogs more often than favorites. Through May 9, the Predictalator has generated $547 for an average $50 bettor. "Normal" or better sides, totals, and run lines (our strongest edges) are 14-10 (+$118) season-to-date.

    The NBA Playoffs continue on in the Second Round and the Predictalator has been profitable on both sides and totals in this year's postseason. Despite being just 16-19 (45.7%) ATS in the NBA Postseason, the Predictalator has generated $46 of total profit, which is a testament to our play value recommendations. Totals have been the real moneymaker in this postseason though, as all playabale totals are 19-15 (55.9%) for a solid profit of $168.

    The NHL Playoffs have featured some very tight lines posted by oddsmakers, which has led to lower volume for the Predictalator. That hasn't let to less profits though. The Predictalator has posted 10 NHL positions (ML, O/U, or PL) in May, going 8-2 (80%) on those positions for a profit of $87. It is rare to find a big edge in the NHL this late in the year, but the Predictalator continues to chip away on small edges to provide solid returns.
