NHL is where it all started for me. It was the sport I watched the most growing up and to this day it is the one that I make the most plays on (although recently cricket and rugby have become the most profitable ones) – Needless to say the NHL (and actually ice hockey tips in general) are incredibly valuable.
What We Do – NHL Betting Tips and Predictions
We build systems that have helped us profit through smart sports betting for close to 3 years. We’ve yet to have a losing quarter to date, with the majority of seasons going over 40 units profit, with only 1 unit maximum per play.
With the NHL there are a few things to remember. The first is that this is a sport played on freckin ICE! So the variance increases. This was tested in a book called The Success Equation – Very good book for anyone looking to go into professional sports betting.
What this talked about was the top sports in relation to skill vs luck and on the bottom end of the scale was hockey, not to say this sport isn’t difficult as I personally believe its the hardest sport to play in the world, but instead this is a sport that has a lot of variance because of how it is played. For example, you could have a team that had 10 shots vs 40 shots and still win. So assuming variance is so high, the average unit play per game needs to be lower, but the volume of plays slightly higher! That’s all that means.
We have a wide range of strategies we use to profit from the NHL. The core elements involve using data-driven strategies to generate a positive ROI for our clients. This means we analyse what has happened in the past based on the data and then review every individual aspect that affects the result of a game and then determine which of these are the strongest. This can be everything from players, goalies, referees, all the way through to things that I do not know anyone looks into – such as ice quality, travel distance etc.
These individual elements are then places into our software to determine the likelihood of a specific result. But this is not where we stop. We then analyse this against the price offered by major sportsbooks, looking into how the lines are moving, which direction and generally using traditional sports betting methodologies to determine the quality of a play. This is of course then related back to the previous data which goes into our final stage checklist.
Gut feeling & non-technical decisions – Occasionally we will have a play that looks good on paper but we do not take, this isn’t very common but it’s very important to look at the human side of sports betting. Things such as momentum and quality of goals are something that a machine cannot look at, they can only look at the statistical side of NHL betting and hence the tips offered might not be 100% accurate. As a result, we do not want to make any mistakes where if we individually reviewed the plays we may down or upgrade it from a 1 unit play to a half or vice versa. In the 2017/18 we did this on around 20 occasions which isn’t much compared to a large season, but it resulted in a positive ROI and hence this is integrated into all of our plays now.
Back Testing The NHL
Over the past 3 years, I’ve back-tested dozens of theories and come up with multiple profitable theories that have earned me close to 40 units a season with the NHL!

The Goal – Ice Hockey Betting Tips GUARANTEED
In 2018 and moving forward I’m developing a tool to automatically back-test data integrating machine learning & statistical analysis. This tool is going to be a long time in the making but once developed will increase the units profited each season from around 40 to potentially 60-70 units. It will also increase the validity and confidence of the theories already created and allow us to increase our unit sizing in the process.
The goal for Ghost Betting is to build a premium guaranteed sports betting service that is not simply making plays on “gut feel” but more of a statistical analysis approach, reducing variance as much as possible and profiting 100% ROI per season, even with correct bankroll management.
This is a very long project as I’ve discussed on the blog previously and NHL is just the start, Ice hockey is the toughest sport to crack and once this is done and we can guarantee 50+ units profit per season we will be integrating the same systems, tools & software to back-test theories in other sports & leagues, starting with the MLB & Soccer.
