Hockey bet handicappers may be surprised as San Jose’s lack of profits and value despite a phenomenal bet on hockey straight up mark. The Carolina Hurricanes have picked up their hockey bet pace as of late to get back into the eastern conference playoff race after a slow start.
Carolina had an overall bet on hockey record of 25-21-2-3 straight up and was just 23-28 against the hockey odds. From January 19 through January 31 the Hurricanes went on a mini hockey bet run in which they got the cash in four out of five games.
Carolina’s hockey bet weakness has been their offense, which was ranked only 26th in the National Hockey League. Their defense was not exactly a hockey bet strength either as it ranked 16th.
Eric Staal was the Hurricanes’ leading goal scorer with 21 while veteran Ray Whitney has also been a hockey bet asset as he led the team in assists with 24 and points with 40. The San Jose Sharks have been a hockey bet powerhouse this season but that has not translated into profits.
San Jose had an overall bet on hockey mark of 36-7-4-1 straight up and 23-25 against the hockey odds. The Sharks were cranking out hockey bet cash as of late, however, as from January 9 through January 31 they paid off gamblers seven out of nine times.
The hockey bet problem with San Jose and why they are operating in the red is that when they do lose they are such prohibitive favorites that it literally busts a bankroll and takes a long winning streak to recover. The hockey bet oddsmakers are doing all that they can to chase away bettors and their dollars from the Sharks.
Joe Thornton led the Sharks in assists with 44 and points with 56 while Patrick Marleau led the team in goals with 26. Evgeni Nabokov was strong in goal with a .911 save percentage and a 2.40 goals against average.
