With the start of the NHL season less than a week away, sportsbooks have updated their 2021-22 NHL point totals. Before making any picks, you NEED to see what the SportsLine Projection Model has to say.

This model simulates every NHL game 10,000 times, taking into account factors like current form, individual matchups, injuries and short- and long-term trends. The model seeks the best values on the money line, puck line and total. 

The model knows that last season, the Tampa Bay Lightning became just the second team to repeat as Stanley Cup champion since the Detroit Red Wings accomplished the feat in 1998. Tampa Bay, which finished with 75 points during the 56-game 2020-21 NHL campaign, is looking to become just the sixth NHL team to win three consecutive championships and first since the New York Islanders captured four in a row from 1980-83.

The Colorado Avalanche won the Presidents' Trophy last season with 82 points and the Boston Bruins earned a league-leading 100 in 2019-20, a campaign that also was shortened due to the coronavirus pandemic. Tampa Bay was first in the NHL in 2018-19, the last full 82-game season, with a franchise-record 128 points. That is the fourth-highest point total in NHL history, four shy of the all-time mark set by the 1976-77 Montreal Canadiens.

We can tell you the model says oddsmakers are way off on their point total of 84.5 for the Los Angeles Kings, as it is forecasting the team to go Under during the 2021-22 season.

The SportsLine Projection Model also has unearthed major discrepancies for six other NHL clubs, including a SHOCKING forecast for a team that has missed the playoffs each of the last four seasons! You ABSOLUTELY need to see the model's best bets before making any 2021-22 NHL point total picks.
