NHL wagering handicappers have been puzzled by the inconsistent performance of both Buffalo and Philadelphia in recent hockey wagering action. The Buffalo Sabres have not offered much in the way of NHL wagering value as of late.
Buffalo had an overall hockey wagering record of 33-25-3-4 straight up but was in the red against the odds with a mark of 30-34. From February 7 through March 6 the Sabres went into a tough NHL wagering stretch in which they got the cash in just 5 out of 12 games.
The Sabres have been a decent NHL wagering “under” team on the road as they went over the total in just 13 out of 32 road games. Buffalo was in and out of the 8th spot of the eastern conference and was fighting for their playoff lives.
There is a pack of teams in the eastern conference from 5th place down to 10th that will make for a superb NHL wagering race to the playoffs down the stretch. They are Montreal, Florida, the Rangers, Pittsburgh, Carolina, and the Sabres.
The Philadelphia Flyers have been a profitable NHL wagering commodity this season but have hit a bit of bump recently. Philadelphia had an overall hockey wagering mark of 34-19-5-5 straight up and 34-29 against the odds. The Flyers were a solid NHL wagering team on home ice with a record of 18-9-3-1.
Philadelphia was also a strong NHL wagering “over” team as a host with just 9 of their 31 home games going under the total. Philadelphia is a strong NHL wagering offensive team as they ranked 7th overall in the National Hockey League.
That Flyer offense has plenty of NHL wagering assets starting with center Jeff Carter, who had 36 goals and 29 assists. Center Mike Richards had 24 goals and 41 assists. Left Wing Simon Gagne had 26 goals and 33 assists while left wing Scott Hartnell and right wing Mike Knuble both had over 20 goals as well.
