NHL Futures: Week 9 Odds Update

Stanley Cup Championship Week 9 Contenders

Things are tightening up atop the National Hockey League overall standings. Riding their first multi loss streak of the season, to Washington (3-1) and Pittsburgh (5-2), Tampa Bay dropped out first overall for the first time in recent memory. The top NHL perch now belongs to St. Louis as the Blues sandwiched a 2-0 loss to Nashville with a pair of impressive wins over Edmonton (8-3) and Minnesota (6-3) during the Week 8 segment. Apart from Betway, the Bolts Stanley Cup line gained value across the board - Bet365 and Bodog jacked up (+600 to +700) their prices on Tampa Bay.

St. Louis had a price drop at Bodog and SportsInteraction (+1000 to +750) and the Blues best value (+1000) is currently posted at Betway. Toronto continues to roll as the Maple Leafs are 7-2-1 over their last ten games and the Buds (+750) are tied with the Blues as second overall favorites. Bettors wanting to buy into Auston Matthews & Crew receive the Leafs best line (+900) at Bet365. Led by red-hot goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky, Columbus (+1200) has outscored their opponents by a 15-6 combined count during a six-game winning streak and should be considered a BUY at this point.

27/11/17 Eastern Conference Championship Odds Update

Tampa Bay continues to lead the Eastern Conference standings as the Bolts are two points ahead of New Jersey and three up on Toronto and Columbus. On a 7-2-1 streak of their own, the New York Islanders are four points back as John Tavares & Co. have moved into fifth overall. With their best prices in brackets, the Lightning (+360) Maple Leafs (+500) and Blue Jackets (+600) are the top three favorites in the East. Despite their rock solid play, the Devils (+1100) and Islanders (+1600) still aren’t receiving much love from Canada Sports Betting top ranked puck wagering specialists.

Pulling away, in what is proving to be a very weak Atlantic Division, Tampa Bay (34) and Toronto (31) are nine and six points clear of Detroit (25) who sits in third place. Before getting too excited about the Red Wings, it’s wise to note that they are ninth overall in the East and just one point away from being on the outside of the NHL playoff picture. Not remembering a time when have ever seen it – the top six positions in the Metropolitan Division are all separated by one point all the way down the standings. Bettors beware of Philadelphia as the Flyers have lost seven straight.

27/11/17 Western Conference Championship Odds Update

Second behind Tampa Bay’s NHL best +24 GF/GA differential, St. Louis (+21) continues to set the pace in the Western Conference. While that doesn’t surprise us – the fact that the Blues are just four points ahead of Vegas does. The expansion Golden Knights, winners of five straight contests, have two games in-hand on St. Louis. Running equally hot, Winnipeg and Nashville join Vegas in a second place tie with 31 points in the West race. Heading into Week 9 action, SportsInteraction is offering the most value on the Blues and Predators while Betway has the best line on the Jets.

Running neck-and-neck, with 7-3-0 runs, the Blues (35) are four points ahead of Winnipeg (31) in the Central Division. Running hotter (8-1-1) than both of them - Nashville (31) is a tiebreaker back of the Jets. Following a 1-4-1 slide, Chicago is 6-3-1 in November and the Blackhawks are tied Minnesota and Dallas with 25 points. The Golden Knights pulled out of a 2-5-1 skid with five straight wins during a run through the Pacific Division. That win streak moved Vegas (31) two points past Los Angeles (29) and four up on Calgary (27) atop the Pacific standings - Wow!
