With most teams having ten games or so remaining in the regular season, the entire bottom half of the Western Conference has already sealed their over/under season-long point total bets. Minnesota, Calgary, Vancouver, Edmonton and Winnipeg have all locked up the under, with Arizona going over. There’s a lot more intrigue in the top half of the conference where division titles and wild card berths are still to be determined, as well as their point total futures. All lines posted below are courtesy of CG Technology’s closing number. You may have a better (or worse) outlook on these last few games depending on when or where you placed your wager.
With most teams hovering around ten games left in the regular season, there isn’t a ton of drama in the Eastern Conference with the exception of the Detroit-Philadelphia wild card battle. However, there is always drama when it comes to Vegas point totals. Four teams – The Islanders, Red Wings, Sabres and Maple Leafs, all appear destined for a last-game-of-the-season outcome to determine the outcome of their over/under on expected point totals. All lines posted below are courtesy of CG Technology’s closing number. You may have a better (or worse) outlook on these last few games depending on when or where you placed your wager.
Obviously, a lot can change over the next few weeks. But if the NHL Playoffs started today, there would be some very interesting matchups. Six of the eight potential matchups are either 3-0 or 3-1 during the regular season, and most are in favor of the projected underdog. The Islanders (28-1) hold a 3-0 advantage over the Rangers (12-1), the Bruins (25-1) are up 3-0 on the Panthers (18-1), and the Blues (12-1) have defeated the Stars (9-1) three out of four tries.
The Chicago Blackhawks have played 60 games this National Hockey League campaign and are one point behind first place Dallas in the Western Conference Central Division. With most teams still having in the neighborhood of 25 games left in the 2015-16 regular schedule there is little clarity about which 16 teams will qualify to play for “The Cup” in April.
The Chicago Blackhawks top the list of Stanley Cup Futures and while they head the Western Conference Central standings with 66 points it is the Washington Capitals that have the best overall record in the league and have the top point total of any NHL squad at 71.
The Washington Capitals are the current favorite to win it all based on Stanley Cup odds at William Hill’s 104 Nevada Sports Books. With 16 days away from the 2016 NHL All-Star game in Nashville, Tennessee (January 31, 2016), the (5/1) are the favorite to win the 2015-2016 NHL Stanley Cup Championship at William Hill’s 104 Nevada Sports Books and on the Mobile Sports app. Bettors at William Hill US favor the Los Angeles Kings in percentage of total dollars wagered (11%) to win the 2015-2016 NHL Stanley Cup.
There are a bunch of teams playing on this 10 game Tuesday card that are coming in with no rest due to the coming schedule blackout for the Christmas holiday. Six teams are playing the second game of a back to back. It has long been an “angle” to fade the team playing in these spots whether it’s NHL, NBA etc. Tonight we have a perfect storm brewing that is allowing us to be picking up tremendous line value with a GOOD team in a BAD spot for our free NHL pick. The St. Louis Blues are playing in Philadelphia Monday and then making the short commute to Boston to face the Bruins. The Bruins are coming off of a 2-1 victory by shootout versus New Jersey on Sunday. Boston has played some very good hockey early in games all season long going 15-6-11 in the 1P. What’s even better to support the play is the fact that on October 23rd they suffered their third 1P loss of the season. That was just after two weeks of play into this year’s season. Since that day they have gone 13-3-8! This is nearly a 60 day sample size too. Blues won the 1P tonight vs Philadelphia but the Flyers have been just terrible in first periods all season.
Boston should be the quicker faster team in the first twenty minutes and we are getting tremendous value at +184 for something that has happened almost at a coin flip rate of 46.8%!
