Hockey wagering fans have long considered New Jersey an ATM machine while Atlanta has failed to gain bet on hockey traction this year. The New Jersey Devils are not only one of the most consistently successful teams in all of hockey wagering but are also one of the top franchises in all of sports.
The Devils once again are one of the top bet on hockey commodities in the eastern conference this season. New Jersey had an overall hockey wagering record of 35-15-1-2 straight up and a tidy 29-21 against the hockey lines.
New Jersey has shown hockey wagering strength on both ends of the ice as they ranked 8th overall on offense while ranking 5th overall on defense. From January 13 through January 30 the Devils went on a strong hockey wagering run in which they got the cash in eight straight games.
Zach Parise has been a significant hockey wagering asset as he led the Devils in goals with 29 and assists with 58. Patrick Elias led New Jersey in assists with 34. Goaltender Scott Clemmensen has been a phenomenal bet on hockey plus with a goals against average of 2.29 and a save percentage of .920.
The Atlanta Thrashers had an overall hockey wagering record of 17-29-5-0 straight up and 25-26 against the hockey lines. Atlanta was a strong hockey wagering “over” team with a mark of 31-18-2 over the total. Just 9 of Atlanta's 25 home games went under.
The Thrashers are such an “over” team because of their horrible defense which ranked 30th in the league. From January 10 through January 31 Atlanta went on a hockey wagering stretch in which they won just 3 out of 9 games.
Ilya Kovalchuk has been one of the few hockey wagering bright spots for Atlanta as he led the team in scoring with 50 points. Kovalchuk also led the team in goals with 21 while Todd White led in assists with 30.
