When breaking down the NHL odds, one of my favorite things to do once a week is go thru the standings and look for teams that have a real home/road dichotomy. What this points towards for those of us making NHL picks is a true picture of the team and gives a more specific look at a club.
Vegas for example got off to an unprecedented start for an expansion team. While the Golden Knights are still playing good hockey as we approach the quarter pole of the season, we are beginning to see stress marks on the road (4-6 SU as of 11/15) compared to at home where they are 7-1 SU.
