Online bookies who want to make more money this year should take advantage of PayPerHead.com’s $3 per head special going on right now,

Chicago Blackhawks             +750

The Blackhawks were an NHL Preseason favorite at +600. After 4 games played, Chicago is at 4-2 straight up.

They’re having a problem so far on the defensive side where they’re giving up 3.8 goals per match from 30.8 shots. But, it’s a long NHL Season.

Pay per head agents should expect more than a few NHL future bettors to jump on the rising odds.

Pittsburgh Penguins               +1000

The 2015 Stanly Cup Champions have a decent 2 and 1 record with 1 OTL (Over Time Loss) after only 4 games considering that their best player, Sidney Crosby, is out indefinitely after suffering a concussion on Oct. 13.

One thing to worry about the Pens is the fact that they are allowing 35 shots on goal per match.

Still, at double digit odds, with the knowledge that Crosby is coming back to the ice the 10 to 1 odds will tempt the Pitt believers.

Washington Capitals             +1000

From 3 games played, Washington has 2 wins and a single SOL (Shootout Overtime Loss). The Capitals have been great on defense.

Washington allows 23.3 shots against and 1 goal against per match. It’s only a matter of time, especially if Crosby remains out for the Pens, that Washington becomes the choice of future hockey bettors in PPH books.

Tampa Bay Lightning           +1000

This should end up being the sharps’ choice to win the 2017 Stanley Cup. Tampa Bay made it to the Cup Finals in 2014. Tampa Bay is 3-0 after 3 games played.

The Lightning’s odds to win the Stanley Cup have fallen dramatically from around +1600 to start the season.

At +1000, unless they suffer a major injury this week, makes them the overlay in the East.

Dallas Stars                            +1200

The Stars 2-1 record is pretty good considering they have battled Anaheim, at Colorado and at Nashville so far this season.

The Stars may not garner a lot of love in per head books at 12 to 1, though. Other teams, including the Blues at 14 to 1, are more enticing.

St. Louis Blues              +1400

3 wins to go along with 1 OTL make the Blues the overlay in the Western Conference. The season has barely started, but St. Louis, in wins over Chicago,

Minnesota and the New York Rangers, has shown that they have a decent defense to go along with an efficient offense.

Online bookies should set max betting limits on every team to win the 2017 Stanley Cup. The season is too young to start making choices regarding max betting limits.
