So how do you bet a -320 in the NHL?

Honestly, I don’t think one can bet prices of -250 or higher straight in hockey – or even in baseball for that matter. You can either: Use it in a parlay; bet it at -1½ goals to better your payback; avoid it altogether.

What’s with the Grand Salami overs so far? So far betting this daily proposition found in some casinos has resulted in an 18-11 record for the overs (62%) with an impressive 10-3 run from Oct. 13-25.

Predators at Sharks: SJ (9-0 home, 35-15 goals) automatic go-on in the Shark Tank. Nashville weak on road (1-6-1) and 0-4 (6-14 goals) LY vs. SJ. SHARKS. (BE$T BET$)
