NHL hockey wagering will close out the regular season with one of the biggest and most intense rivalries posted on the NHL hockey lines. NHL hockey wagering fans may see a potential preview of a future western conference playoff pairing on the NHL hockey lines board in this matchup!
The Detroit Red Wings have suffered a recent NHL hockey wagering slump that has cost gamblers a considerable amount of money while costing the Red Wings the top spot in the western conference. Detroit had an overall record of 49-19-6-3 straight up, which was still impressive and 2nd best in the west, but the Wings were also just 27-50 against the NHL hockey lines.
The reason for the NHL hockey wagering disparity between Detroit's straight up record and their mark against the odds is because the Red Wings have become the biggest overlay in the NHL, if not in all of sports! A great example of this NHL hockey wagering dilemma comes from Detroit's March 27 home game against the Islanders in which they were -$380 chalks on the money line in a 0-2 loss.
This is a classic NHL hockey wagering example of how a loss on a big overlay cannot be recouped in the long run. From March 23 through April 2 Detroit lost 4 out of 5 games against the NHL hockey wagering board, all as heavy favorites. Detroit has the top ranked offense in the NHL but their defense ranked only 21st in the league and is a cause of concern for the NHL hockey wagering post season.
The Chicago Blackhawks have seen a recent up tick against the NHL hockey lines. The Hawks beat the NHL hockey wagering board in 5 out of 7 games from March 22 through April 3 and have been a strong home team with a NHL hockey wagering mark of just 9 losses in 39 games as a host. Chicago offers better NHL hockey wagering balance than does Detroit as the Hawks ranked 5th overall in both offense and defense.
