NHL Tips


New York Rangers @ Boston Bruins

The New York Rangers will travel to Boston to face the Bruins on Saturday. For hockey bettors, there are some compelling reasons to back the Bruins in the contest.

Firstly, the Rangers will be travelling and playing two games in as many days. Meanwhile, Boston will be playing at home and will be playing on a full day's rest. Secondly, the Rangers simply have not proven enough on the road to garner support from tbe betting public. They are just 4-7-0 as visitors thus far this season, with four wins on the road actually amounting to the league's worst total. Lastly, the Bruins are solid enough at home thus far. The third-placed team in the Atlantic has gone 9-5-2 when hosting. 

The Bruins are priced at $1.75 in the straight-up market with Ladbrokes. Those odds look perfectly acceptable given the totality of the situation.

Futures


NHL teams are all about 30 games into their schedules, meaning almost 40% of the season has been completed. In the Pacific Division the preseason favorites, the Edmonton Oilers, are toward the bottom of the league. They promise to play better in the second half of the season, like a lot of young teams. However, their status as preseason favorites has created an opportunity in the Pacific Division with the Los Angeles Kings.

The Kings are currently in first place in the Pacific and Ladbrokes seems to be slow in adjusting the odds. While most sportsbooks are offering $2.40 to $2.62 on the Kings to win the Pacific, Ladbrokes offer a lengthy $3.25.

When it comes to mid-season futures bets, you want to figure out why a team is succeeding and then decide if the reason is likely to stay consistent. With Los Angeles, Jonathan Quick is having a heck of season. His save percentage is .930 and his GAA is 2.18. The goaltender for Team USA at the last Olympics is certainly capable of maintaining a high level of play over the course of the whole season. Furthermore, he has a Conn Smyth Trophy to his credit as well as a second-placed finish for the Vezina. Injuries are always a concern, but they are random. With Quick being LA's No.1, you can back the Kings for the Pacific Division with full confidence that the big contributor to the team's performance will be able to keep his playing level up.

Additionally, the Columbus Blue Jackets look great at $4.00 with William Hill in the Metro. They are currently tops in the standings and a big reason is Sergei Bobrovsky. Of course, that's the current Vezina holder and the best goalie statistically for regular starters in the NHL this season.
