A proven long-term winner as an NHL handicapper, Jon also has a knack for sharing his ‘tricks of the trade’ through informative and engaging writeups that are a valuable read for any hockey bettor — whether you’re new to the betting game or are an experienced punter
Jon is a veteran writer who has more than 20 years of experience handicapping and betting on various sports. From 2017-2020, he partnered with a friend to operate NHLTips.ca, a hockey betting information site where he shared notable statistics, analysis and betting picks while also writing articles about NHL betting strategy. Jon prefers to attack less-exploited markets like team totals, first period lines and regulation lines, although he’ll occasionally sprinkle in some moneyline and Over/Under plays as well. Jon’s expertise as a hockey handicapper is evidenced by his all-time record at NHLTips.ca, where his publicly-posted plays went 771-686 for 45.4 units of profit.

Favorite bet of all time
After Columbus upset Tampa Bay in Game 1 of the teams’ opening-round series in the 2019 playoffs, the whole world expected the Lightning to rebound in Game 2 — creating a pile of value on the Blue Jackets. Jon backed the Columbus Team Total Over 2.5 at an inflated +130 return and cashed his ticket before the game was 22 minutes old.
Most heart-breaking bet
If you bet on hockey long enough, you’ll suffer plenty of gut-wrenching losses. One that has always stuck with Jon was a 2019 game in which Edmonton allowed a soft goal with less than one second remaining in the opening period, spoiling his plus-money wager on the First Period Under 1.5 goals.
