NHL wagering fans have the choice of Chicago, who is trying to hold on to home ice for the first round of the playoffs, and Montreal, who is fighting for their hockey wagering post season life!
The Chicago Blackhawks are currently tied with the Vancouver Canucks for the 4th spot in the western conference NHL wagering playoff race, which would give them home ice advantage for the first round. Chicago has an overall hockey wagering record of 40-23-5-6 straight up and 39-35 against the NHL wagering line.
The Blackhawks have struggled as of late, however, and have lost 6 out of their last 9 NHL wagering decisions. That being said, the Blackhawks are one of the more balanced teams in all of NHL wagering as they rank an explosive 3rd overall on offense while ranking a solid 6th overall on defense.
Chicago’s offense is led by a trio of talented players starting with leading scorer, right wing Martin Havlat, who has 26 goals and 42 assists. Another right winger, Patrick Kane, has 24 goals and 40 assists. Center Jonathan Toews has 30 goals and 33 assists.
The Montreal Canadiens are in a precarious NHL wagering spot as they sit in the 8th and final eastern conference playoff spot just 1 point ahead of Florida.
The Canadiens have been one of the worst teams in all of hockey wagering since the all star break and their recent play reveals their woes as the Habs have lost 6 out of their last 8 NHL wagering decisions. Montreal has been trending “over” as of late with 5 out of their last 6 games having gone over the NHL wagering number.
Montreal has been a solid home team this NHL wagering season with a mark of 23-8-3-4. Their overall NHL wagering record is 38-27-3-7 straight up but just 28-47 against the odds as the Canadiens are one of the most consistently over-valued teams on the board. Andrei Markov leads the Habs with 60 points.
