# NHL Regular Season Point Totals & Stanley Cup Analysis

I didn’t get into an article for futures on NBA or NCAAB because those markets were so mixed and such a mess. However, the NHL markets have been a lot cleaner, so I wanted to dive into them. What does my NHL regular season points algorithm show for the season ahead? What about the futures algorithm for Stanley Cup prices? I entered all the necessary data and adjustments for the new season in the algorithms. Both algorithms have been great tools for finding values in the regular season point totals markets, and for the Stanley Cup… let’s do it again in 2021!

What is the sharp money buying for the season ahead? What am I betting for the season ahead? Well, the picture above is a hint! Here are the top values and sharp futures for the 2021 NHL season (all odds from Bookmaker.eu, Bovada.lv or Pinnacle.com)…

1) Philadelphia OV65.5 (-110) The algorithm calculates Philadelphia achieving 73 totals points.

2) NY Islanders UN62.5 (-110) The algorithm calculates the Islanders achieving 56 total points. I am also seeing a medium sharp buy on this UNDER.

3) Dallas UN66.5 (-115) The algorithm calculates Dallas achieving 61 total points.

4) Nashville UN65.5 (-110) The algorithm calculates Nashville achieving 60 total points. I am also seeing a medium sharp buy on this UNDER.

5) Buffalo OV57.5 (-105) The algorithm calculates Buffalo achieving 61 total points. I am also seeing a small sharp buy on this OVER

6) Calgary OV64.5 (-105) The algorithm calculates Calgary achieving 67 total points.

What about the Stanley Cup? I am showing the values for the Stanley Cup as…

1) Philadelphia is currently listed at +2309 (Pinnacle), however I calculate their chances of winning resulting in a price of +1050.

2) Dallas is currently listed at +2533 (Pinnacle), however I calculate their chances of winning resulting in a price of +1500.

3) Edmonton is currently listed at +1970 (Pinnacle), however I calculate their chances of winning resulting in a price of +1300.

4) Toronto is currently listed at +1000 (Pinnacle), however I calculate their chances of winning resulting in a price of +750.

5) Colorado is currently listed at +650 (Bovada), however I calculate their chances of winning resulting in a price of +425.

What is the top sharp points total and Stanley Cup future? The points total seeing the largest amount of sharp buying is Islanders UN62.5. The Stanley Cup future seeing the largest amount of sharp buying were Toronto at +1200, followed by Colorado at +700.

Enjoy the season and good luck in your action!
