NHL hockey wagering opportunities abound in this game as the teams have stark contrasts in their recent results against the NHL hockey lines. The Tampa Bay Lightning carried far better than expected NHL hockey wagering value earlier in the season but that has not been the case as of late.
Since January 29 the Lightning have been in a free fall against the NHL hockey lines as they have gushed red ink. From January 29 through March 6 Tampa Bay got the cash in just 4 out of 17 games. The Lightning have been a weak NHL hockey wagering commodity on the road with a mark of just 10 wins in 32 games.
Tampa Bay has little to sell as far as NHL hockey wagering assets. They ranked 23rd in the National Hockey League for offense while ranking 26th overall for defense. The long time tandem of Martin St. Louis and Vincent Lecavalier is about all that the Lightning has in the way of NHL hockey wagering assets.
St. Louis had 23 goals and 41 assists while Lecavalier had 27 goals and 33 assists. The Toronto Maple Leafs have had good NHL hockey wagering success as of late. Toronto beat the NHL hockey lines in 5 out of 6 games from February 22 through March 5.
The Maple Leafs had an overall NHL hockey wagering record of 26-26-6-7 straight up and 35-30 against the odds. Toronto’s main NHL hockey wagering asset has been their offense which ranked 11th best in the league. Their defense has been the NHL hockey wagering weakness of the team as it ranked 30th.
Toronto had been trending under recently as from February 21 through March 5 they went under the total in 5 out of 7 games. Jason Blake has been a strong NHL hockey wagering asset for the Leafs as he led the team in scoring with 22 goals and 29 assists.
