There are a lot of different strategies that you can use when betting on NHL games, but one of the most tried and true betting methods is fading the public. To fade the public you just have to take a look at NHL public betting trends, which can also just be called the NHL consensus picks, and then bet the opposite side. Most sites aren’t able to show you public betting percentages but with BetQL you can always see which side the public is betting for every game and every bet type.
