NHL Hockey Predictions


The Predictor was designed to use computer estimates from the Inference Index to predict future NHL games. The Predictor does NOT account for injuries, or any other factors that may cause the outcome to be swayed in one direction or another. See my disclaimer page for more on the benefits/downfalls about these predictions: Predictions Disclaimer

Also note, that the Predictor should be used for entertainment purposes only. However, if you do wish to gamble (at your own risk), then I highly suggest reading my blog post: The Top 5 Online Sportsbooks for U.S. Players.

All upcoming NHL hockey predictions are listed below along with the Index’s picks for the odds to win each of the NHL games straight-up (SU) and predictions for each game.
