NCAA Hockey: Wednesday, March 8 Best Bets

If you’re a hockey bettor, today is a great day.

I should rephrase that. If you’re a hockey bettor that has an account on Bovada, today is a great day.

The Hockey East Tournament kicks off today with three opening round games. I’ve looked around a few sportsbook and it looks like Bovada is the shop that has lines for today’s games.

March is great because of March Madness. Everybody knows and understands that but the road to the Frozen Four is just as electric. Not as many teams of course but post season hockey is just a different beast.

If you’ve been following me on twitter (@KotaCapperPace), you know that I’ve been getting into hockey more this year. I’ve been betting the NHL every night and have been doing solid this season. The last 14 days, however, are a different story.

But postseason college hockey is back and we’ll be betting it. Before we get into my favorite plays for today’s action, just check out this Frozen Four pump up video from 2021:

Wednesday, March 8 College Hockey Best Bets

Maine -1.5 (-105)

Maine has good goaltending and good scoring. They are 2-0 against Vermont this season – both at home like this game tonight at 6 p.m. Vermont will be good but I think it’s wrong place, wrong time for the Catamounts. Tough to score on Maine’s goaltender and when you can’t score in the playoffs, it can turn ugly fast especially on the road.

New Hampshire +1.5 (-115)

Providence is 2-7-1 in its last 10 games. Goaltending is shaking for the Friars. This season series was split 1-1-1 but New Hampshire had won six in a row if you count shootouts late in the season. Providence has the experience but they are limping to the postseason. I think this ends up being a close matchup maybe even an overtime game and that’s why I expect New Hampshire to cover this.
