NHL wagering Saturday from Denver will feature a matchup of a playoff team against one that is out of the hockey wagering post season picture. NHL wagering on Vancouver has been like having a personal ATM machine while Colorado looks like a team that can't wait for the hockey wagering season to end.
The Vancouver Canucks have skyrocketed past the Calgary Flames to the top spot in the northwest division standings. NHL wagering fans have a balanced team in Vancouver that ranked 9th overall on offense while ranking 6th overall on defense. A major reason for Vancouver's hockey wagering success has been goaltender Roberto Luongo.
When Luongo was out with an injury earlier in the season the Canucks struggled against the NHL wagering board. Since Luongo's return, however, they have been one of the best NHL wagering values on the board.
Luongo had a .918 save percentage, a 2.39 goals against average, 30 wins, and 7 shutouts! Twin brothers Daniel and Henrik Sedin have also been significant NHL wagering assets for the Canucks. Left wing Daniel had 31 goals and 49 assists for 80 points while center Henrik had 20 goals and 59 assists for 79 points.
Vancouver had an overall NHL wagering mark of 42-25-3-7 straight up and 41-36 against the spread. From February 3 through April 2 Vancouver got the cash in 20 out of 27 games!
The Colorado Avalanche have had the worst NHL wagering season in their history since moving from Quebec. The Avalanche had an overall hockey wagering record of 31-44-0-2 straight up and 33-44 against the odds. It looks as if Colorado has laid down and died as quitters as from March 15 through April 1 they failed to beat the NHL wagering board in 8 straight games.
Colorado is a weak NHL wagering commodity on both ends of the rink ranking 30th on offense and 27th on defense. Their leading scorer, Ryan Smith, had only 59 points. Goaltender Peter Budaj did not offer much NHL wagering relief with his .893 save percentage and 3.02 goals against average.
